Sonia, in my opinion, other than the ‘hard science’ stuff, most of what we talk about on this forum involves the mind, and mind versus body, to some extent. There’s not a day that goes by where a part of me doesn’t want to give up the whole program and just indulge, regardless of all the consequences.
My inner discussion loops back around on itself, here, and it’s not like I want to just wave a magic wand, and have it not be the struggle it is. If it would be too easy, then surely something else would be lost - like in some cosmic zero-sum game. If it would be too easy, I probably wouldn’t have ended up here, or not even be “me.”
After four months of keto and fasting, results were good, and it’s perverse - after feeling good about that, I had quite a big letdown, like perhaps the struggle isn’t as big as I first thought, the cause not so noble after all. Keeping calm about it, though.
