Some more bread?? aargh!

I'm in school and I'm hungry. I go to the food court at the student union here and what are my choices? Pizza, Stuffed Pizza, Stromboli(yumm), sandwich, burgers, wraps, the inevitable taco bell, panda express, subway and some more. Notice one common factor among them all? BREAD. Filled with carbs and nothing more. And then we have cheese and the fried stuff in them. Now how does anyone expect to lose weight and stay in shape? I'm sick of all the bread around me. It's not just at school but everywhere we go, its all about bread. I was never big on it back home, and now I'm forced to eat it. When I go home, I'm not going to even LOOK at bread. That's decided. I'm sick of it. This happens ALL the time. Even now. I'm feeling guilty as hell. I was so hungry after lab I had a slice of pizza and fries. And now I feel terrible for feeding my body all this junk.This was in the afternoon. Sufficient time has passed for me to feel hungry again and what were my choices? Coffee, pastry, danish and eclair. I settled for the eclair and now guilt strikes again. I'm going to have roti and dal when I get home. Or just some dal. sigh. And now get back to my paper on GE's business strategy on outsourcing.
