Commenting on what you said about the article, Rheyn, I've noticed that whenever I go on a diet and stick to it, that I'll have only healthy foods in the house. So after four months of "being a good little boy", all of a sudden the devil will come out in me and I'll want to have a "binge night". Since the pantry in my house would only be filled with healthy stuff, I would binge on that and then feel guilt about it. But oddly enough, come weigh in day, I would often still see a weight loss (not as high as if I had not binged, but still maybe a one pound loss.) It seemed like my body handled the healthy food better than when I had binged on junk food (always resutling in a weight gain.)

Exercise, of course, also made a difference, I'm sure. Good article and interesting.

I love this part:
"Looking back on my excesses I’m reminded of Dr. John McDougall’s contention that moderation is bulls*** and doesn’t work because humans are risk-taking creatures prone to excess and that, instead, our junkiedom should be embraced in the healthiest ways possible, whether it’s eating mountainous plates of brown rice, baked potatoes and vegetables or finding physical activities that we can be crazy about for our entire lives."

And why not??? I KNOW I get easily obsessed (confession: I watched two full 26-episode anime series on Netflix last week), and it feel so much better to give into it and be consumed by healthy things (no, I do not include watching that much TV in this category, lol) than to torture myself holding back!

Thanks for letting me know Kim - sorry for the confusion. I must be having computer trouble.

That's what I thought too Boni. You say it so well. At a certain point there is no hiding from the pain and suffering of those who experience pain and suffering at the hands of humans.

I heard some comic say the other day, "hunters call hunting a sport. But it's not a real a sport is it if the other side doesn't have the same chance to do to you what you do to them."

Thanks for that article. I think all of us experience a similar journey towards veganism. Like the author, reading propelled me towards the lifestyle. The more you read, the more you understand.

I enjoyed this very much - hope you do too. Also has a couple of nice shout outs to Dr. McDougall.
