This is a great post stomper. It's great to see you apply lessons from barefoot running to your diet. I think you are on the right path about how you feel about food. I think the first thing that we as Americans don't do well is to treat food as what it should be: a source of sustainance and enjoyment.
I'm not a big fan of particular diets either, but I am giving paleo a spin right now. What Ilike about it is that, besides the general prohibition of grains and processed foods, you can eat any food in any amount. It's really caused me to detach myself from eating for eating sake...the whole ritual 3 meals a day. Ieat when I'm hungry, or when Ifeel like enjoying something. The foods I crave on the diet are the foods you can eat anyway, so the restrictions on my diet haven't been that demanding. And when I want to eat something that isn't on the program, Ijust do it. I don't feel guilty about it because I otherwise eat very healthy on the diet. It's been great.
It sounds like your attitude is about the same, and I think that's a good place to be.
