The Weird Thing About My Fridge

So, here's the weird thing about my fridge. Since I started trying to eat healthier and lose weight, it's a lot fuller than it used to be. This seems counter-intuitive.

There's a couple of reasons for it. For one thing, my pre-diet habits tended to favor "cupboard" foods like cookies, candy, and snack cakes. My cupboards are as full as ever, though, so that's not the whole reason.

The main reason is variety. I think I've realized that if I'm going to stick with this plan, I need lots and lots of options. So if (for example) I decided I'm not in the mood for the pint of strawberries, I can opt for applesauce, or fat-free cottage cheese, or sugar-free chocolate pudding, or something else. In the fridge. Man, it's crowded in there.
