Hitting the reset button
Wednesday, October 23, 2013
People who have never heard of Ideal Protein don't seem to understand what I'm trying to do.
I try not to tell people I'm even dieting, I think of this as a private part of my life and I hate answering all the questions that follow.
Then there are some people who will notice the silver packets and inquire. I eat my lunch at my desk in cubicle land, there is no where to go for privacy. We are a 45 minute drive from civilization. I will tell them that I'm on a low carb diet. Then they want to know specifics about what type of proteins I'm eating, etc. The young men are trying to "bulk" up so they know all about protein shakes. (apparently)
I have found the best way to describe what I'm doing is to tell people that I'm hitting my reset button. I needed help to get back to basics and this plan is working perfect. You know those reset buttons? When electronics are just messed up and you have troubleshooted the problem, often the last resort is to hit the reset button. It is a little black button, depressed into the molded plastic. You need to get a pen out and push that thing. I just checked and I have one on the back of my calculator. Giving the pancreas a rest will reset my emotions, reset my hormones and reset the relationship I have with food and alcohol.
