Got the book coming from the library.

Thank you for posting this one. I just went to hear Michael Pollan at the Philly free Library. This what has been discussed on F2F in the Jeff era podcasts. One of the reasons I really have gotten into F2F premises, and this site too.

Keep on going!

O, that this too too solid flesh would melt
Thaw and resolve itself into a dew!

Thanks, Robert! I just sent you a message, but I'll say it here, too: I'm glad you are so good at reaching out. It's getting me motivated to live clean again. I kind of follow a sine wave of being lax and then being disciplined. It has kept me in a healthy range my whole adult life, so I need to remember to trust my body's wisdom-- it starts to feel pretty disgusted after a certain amount of lenience, and then I get remotivated to tighten up the ship. I am learning to let go of the anxiety and fear I have about gaining weight-- that makes me eat or diet compulsively, neither of which is true peace and wisdom.

I do remember the sweet freedom from cravings, and I know it takes me only about 4 days of sugarlessness to get that monkey off my back. Then I start the sine-wave pattern all over again. I'm learning to be okay with that, crazy as it may sound.

PAULINLIM - I TOTALLY get it... I cannot say that I am totally free from it because I am not, it is so sad today that we actually have to make a focused effort to find / use real food but that is the world in which we live. Sometimes this is about getting healthy, other times it seems like its nothing more than survival and staying ahead of the "Hounds Of Hell" so to speak. That's why we need each other and a supportive community because of how difficult things can get.

Keep rawkin it, you are going to win, persistant effort always wins in the end

Dear Robert:

I read that book a few years ago and agree that it was inspiring and enlightening! However, I still love that sugar-fat-salt hyper-palatable combination. It's hard to avoid in my environment! I keep exercising to try to stay ahead of it, but sometimes I feel like a hamster trapped on a wheel, and then I collapse in a heap and start again at square one by swearing off sugar. I guess that's a good thing-- at least I go on mini-detoxes. I don't think I could avoid it forever and ever, though, like some OAs I know. That's too intimidating.

I read the book by Dr. David Kessler and why this guy was not given the Nobel Prize is beyond me. This really explains how I learned new eating patterns but actually puts factual information to the concepts to back it up.

If you want to really understand what makes your cravings tick and how to form better associations with food, this is for you

This is worth your time to watch...
