I often suspect that I am the only woman in America who actually turns the Nutrition Facts section of any food packing firmly away from my line of vision. So as to never, ever learn how many calories are in a serving. When my eyes happen to curse me with the information (because I'm looking for, say, protein, or fiber, and I fail to look low enough, fast enough) you can probably hear me cursing in the next county.

Knowing calories makes me crazy. Also a mystery to me: My weight.
