I was just reading this article on juice "cleanses" and the woman writing it admitted that it did nothing and was probably terrible but that it made her feel incredible and that she would probably do it again.
She described a sense of euphoria at overcoming sensuality.
I find this strange and interesting on several levels.
As a hedonist on a diet, i understand this in a very intimate way.
I keep the Kate Moss quote "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" at the forefront of my mind because that is the only way I can convince myself to continue.
The only way to over come the sensuality of eating... Of flavor and savoriness is to understand the intrinsic sensuality of feeling sexy.
This is what struck me about this woman's report. Is withholding truly denying oneself sensuality? Can the denial (and also in many cases the end result) not be in and of itself a sensual act?
