Gosh, lady! Saw your post responding to genetic determinism and your mention of Rupert Sheldrake's work on morphogenic fields. Amazing stuff that has interested me for decades. Was not aware of Lipton's work. So, thanks for mentioning it.
Thank you so much for the wonderful blog comments. I will certainly look into Jon Gabriel and see what he's discussing! It's going to be a big change, getting myself reigned back in and on an even keel with the eating and exercise but it's Stake In The Ground time!
I just read your comments on Fifi's blog so of course I had to go to your page to see who this woman is with such wisdom. I am going to utilize some of your suggestions. I especially like the "grouping" suggestion and you are absolutely right we do eat the same foods over and over. I use the Groupings now but have entered only breakfasts as a meal but have entered the ingredients for some of my dishes like chili, dinner salad, casseroles etc. Great timesavers.
Felt a need to come back and thank you again. I am SO grateful for your mention of leptin!
It appears that my unwitting routine that essentially mirrors the 5 rules of the leptin diet has actually lead to improved metabolism. I don't know how else to make sense of my experience in recent months. Honestly, I'm in shock.
My current weight, nutritional intake and activity level align with that of a 29 year old woman. And, I'm far from 29!
Although my injury has not allowed me to return to running yet, my metabolism is certainly behaving like I have!
