I learned that Prof. Tim Noakes just keeps getting better and better. Just listening to him saying how the medical schools in So. Africa are colonized by Europe and America because they are dependent on the medicine from there. He is working on another book about how insulin resistance is the root cause of our common diseases now. And that low carb high fat can reverse that.
Today I learned that an excellent way to spend a sick day was to read all 1562 posts of this thread so far - I have learned and laughed so much!
What a great place to be!
Today I’m sorting through my genome based on some things I learned last night about genetic predisposition to types of muscle fiber, hypertrophy and strength. I think I’m completely average in this regard.
This week, I have learned what it feels like to break out of jail. Food Jail, that is. The kind of imprisonment that has held me to “meal times”, eating 3 meals a day, eating because it’s my scheduled break at work, eating because I’m bored…that kind of “food jail”.
Feeling that sense of freedom from food, and all the decades of Pavlovian “mealtime”, and “clean your plate” practices - is nothing short of exhilarating and eye=opening. Haven’t eating for 16 or 18 hours now. Don’t miss it. Getting lots of other things done. And the freedom is amazing.
This might sound weird to some of you, but when you’ve been living in, well, essentially a prison of a body for decades - experiencing what it feels like to run free is something truly incredible. I’ve learned that freedom from food addiction tastes better than anything you can serve up on a plate.
Snapedia is the ultimate rabbit hole. I’m down there almost daily.
Much respect! Always keep pushing.
Loved this, thanks for sharing it with us.
I learned that my body does not respond well to sugar, ice cream, wheat product, etc after being off them so long. Made hubby a lovely lunch / dinner for Father’s day. Decided to enjoy a bit of angel food cake, berries and A LITTLE ice cream with the family.
Not even 5 minutes later. Blah. puked. (Sorry if that’s TMI). Stomach is now recovering, but ugh. It was awful, but, it taught me that its better to sip coffee than to eat sweets, even if it is a family occasion/function.
