Really, the picture is just there because it is pretty.
This post has nothing to do about camels, a little to do about straws of the sort that worry camels but nothing to do with drinking straws but a little to do with chocolate.
But most to do with dieting and perspective.
Many moons ago we had a receptionist who seemed, like most women, to be on a permanent diet. To reward herself for her calorific restraint she treated herself to a 50g (2oz) chocolate bar every day as part of her lunch.
50g of chocolate. Every day.
Doesn't seem much until you multiply by 365.
That's over 18 kilograms of chocolate a year. Nearly 40 pounds of fat and sugar a year.
Surely her diet would do better if she didn't eat the chocolate.
