Seven Sins in Seven Days: Gluttony

Hello ScoFans!

The next sin on the menu is... oh, you already know it's GLUTTONY? Okay, I'll put the drum kit away then. No skin off my nose, you're the ones who are missing out on some bad ass once in a lifetime drum stylings.

Derived from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow, gluttony (Latin, gula) is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste. In the Christian religions, it is considered a sin because of the excessive desire for food, or its withholding from the needy

Gluttony is something I have certainly been guilty of in the past, but I like to think not so much in the recent present.
There once was a time when I could eat a family size pizza in one sitting and go back for two bowls of icecream afterwards (I loved pizza. I could eat it all day and not feel full)
Not long after I moved out of home it was a bowl of ice cream and a bag of chips every night. There was lots of McDonald's and KFC (mostly KFC because there wasn't a McDonalds in this town at the time) and well, I was just enjoying all the foods that were (and I assume still are) bad for me.
Oh, and of course we can't forget the bacon and egg breakfasts on weekends. And if wasn't bacon and eggs it was pancakes. And if it wasn't pancakes it was because I was having bacon and eggs and pancakes and cooking up some brinner that night.
I'm surprised as I look back on that time that I only grew to 110kgs (which is approximately 242 pounds for anyone whose backwards country has not yet converted to the metric system =p)
But, over since my last birthday (and particularly over the last 6 months) I have been eating a lot less, and a lot healthier. Anyone who catches on on Twitter around dinner time knows these days there are a lot of Tuna Casseroles, chicken and veggies or just veggies on their own. If I have takeaway food it's usually Nando's, which is still (reasonably) healthy. And breakfast is a bowl of oats with a glass of orange juice.
So whilst I have mended my ways..
Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. There once was a time when, well as the song says "I've had enough, now I want my share". Whose share had I had? I don't know. But that didn't stop me wanting my share even though I was no longer hungry.


  1. Uh-oh! This is my guilty pleasure. I love to eat and eat and eat and eat. I don't think I'll ever stop committing this sin, well at least not right now anyway...hehehehehe

  2. I've performed my share of gluttonous deeds back in my younger days. Pizza, ice cream, burgers, chicken nuggets, fried chicken, you name it, I probably ate tub loads of it!

    Now a days, my diet still includes tons of fast food due to my hectic schedule and the current disarray of my kitchen, but I tend to stick to the healthier items on the menus...if such things exist. I frequent all sandwich shops in the area waay too often, most of the staff know me by name and know my two fav subs (Tuna or Italian BMTs.)

    I'm not longer the same glutton I was back in the day. :)

  3. I'm sinful in this too, love. I have sweet tooth, and I definitely love pizza / pasta / other carbs with the ice cream and cake on the side. Trying to get those in moderation but I usually lose control during that time of the month.

  4. I LOVE to eat, but really don't. I live in a state of (it seems) perpetual starvation. And yet I could still stand to lose 7 lbs. And yes, I'm from one of those backwards places. Just don't call me backwards...!

  5. hello scoman!!! i miss you soooo much that i refuse to sleep in my pyjamas for a week.


    anyways, do you know that 'gula' is a malay word for sugar? no you dont? now you do :)

    secondly, OMGD we should have nando's together because I FREAKING LOVE NANDO's.

    like love that i'd break up with a boy for Nando's. hahah.

    I have Nando's peri-peri sauce in stock at home to eat with my fried chicken wings.

    and talk about gluttony. lol.

  6. I may be backward, but you drive on the wrong side of the road :D

    I'm guilty. Very guilty.

  7. Yep. Pizza is like my weakness. I could eat it all week, every day.

    Thankfully my self disgust prevents me from actually eating it all the time.

  8. i am seriously worried am gonna be guilty of all the deadly sins so far not good. i love food. and love to eat. but these days am trying to be healthier eat less and hopefully loose some weight in the process.

    i heart Nandos!i think the burgers tho in SA are way better than the ones in the UK!

  9. Ok - so I'm now to post #2 - I think I've been guilty of this one too!!! Darn those sour cream and onion pringles!!! They are now on my list of foods to NEVER purchase again.
