I seem to have invented a new meal. It's a second dinner. Due to the strange hours I keep, it has become necessary to have a second meal in the evening. The workers in the house eat when they come in, at sevenish. By the time they're in bed, I'm starving again, so am forced to eat a second evening meal. Not supper, because I'm not like that. I suppose, working on the brunch principle the second dinner should be called dickfast, but that'll never take. It's for this reason I've named it Dinner 2.

It's actually causing me to put weight on again. This wont do. I was enjoying looking like a hollow shell of a man. A gaunt and drawn tangible shadow. But hey, at least I'm not hungry.

It's usually a repeat of dinner 1. Tonight, for example, I'm having left over curry with nan bread.

An endless supply of hot cross buns, if there's any justice in the world.

Hmmm. I have to say that sounds more like a second helping than a new meal. But fair play, you stuck your flag in it (not literally i hope) and gave it a name.

We used to stick flags in the steaks at Wetherspoons. We had to.

It's not a second helping. Dinner 1 was a tandoori mixed grill four hours ago. Dinner 2 is curry. And if it were the same meal, how long a gap do you have to leave for it to become a new meal?

Hmm, leftovers are almost always just leftovers in my book, unless dinner has been leftover until breakfast the next morning (6am at the earliest), in which case it does in fact become a new meal.

You make it sound as though you live in a beehive.

Here is how you should be eating if you don't want to gain weight (according to Paul McKenna):

When you feel hungry, eat something.
Eat what you want to eat, not what you think you should eat.
Eat consciously, chewing each bite slowly so that you can actually taste and enjoy what you're eating.
Stop when you're full. You won't really save any starving children in China if you don't eat everything on your plate.

Yeah. That sounds nice in principle. In practice it's a lot of old arse.

Yeah, I can't seem to do that one where you have to eat slowly. I don't have time for that. He also says you're not supposed to have any distractions while you eat, like TV. I suppose that means eating lunch at my desk while I'm still working on something is a bad thing.

I have no problem with the second one though. Or the first, come to think of it. I'm pretty good about the last one, but sometimes...

'Eat what you want to eat, not what you think you should eat.'

I've been following this advice. Although this meant eating something I know I shouldn't have.

Unfortunately I couldn't fit all the left over bits of Paul McKenna into the freezer, so even though I was full, I had to carry on eating.

Tonight I think I'll just stick to chicken.

While this is probably true, China isn't really the best example of somewhere with a preponderance of starving children. It is, however, a proven fact that if you eat everything on your place you will save starving children in Africa. Especially Darkest Africa, which is near the middle somewhere, I believe.

You can, of course, send any leftovers to Oxfam, where they appear to be served up as lunch in our canteen.
