  • What about this gem:

    Coworker - Supermarkets should be reeled in, they have huge displays of chocolate right there in your face.

    Me - How about just walking past and not buying any?

    Coworker - It's not that simple. They should be hidden away with the cigarrettes.
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    • PSA. Just for the record, it's not that simple, for many of us. When the parts of your body controlling addiction centers (be it for food, smokes, alcohol, or drugs) is screwed up, then you get urges to consume (whatever you're body's craving) 24/7. Ignoring the urges is like ignoring the urge to breathe - you can do it for a while, and then your body takes over.

      I used to get urges to eat sugar or carbs (even primal carbs) every 5 minutes or so, and I would ignore them. For an hour. For three hours. For 23 hours. Then, it literally felt like someone else took over my brain, I'd cave and eat as much of it as I could till about 30 minutes later my brain reverted control to me, and I'd look in shock and horror at what I'd done. For the next 23 and a half hours I'd berate and hate myself and ignore the incessant urges until my brain switched over and I'd binge again.

      Going primal and increasing fat and protein helped a lot with that, and I went from a fairly extreme case to just having urges like this every once in a while. Even then, they were still overpowering, something you could ignore only for a while.

      Upping my breakfast protein tremendously (and continuing the fat, protein, and organic whole foods primal diet I had already been eating for a few years) has turned off the cravings completely so I don't have to ignore them anymore. They're gone. I can easily walk past chocolate (even "the good stuff"), ice cream, cake, anything at all and not have even a flash of desire for it.

      Anyone who wants to help others should know this. (I believe it will help other addictions, as well, and all those with eating disorders, whether they have urges to eat, or urges not to eat.)

        This is the part that's been the scariest since I hit my head again a few months ago. Too soon after the previous concussion in June, then I hit it again (not too hard I thought) in February. A few weeks later and it was REALLY difficult to control moods and cravings, and you finally just lose control. Scary. Then you feel like crap and you get depressed, and depressed is not good for self control and...

        Man, it sucks.

        I'm finding coconut oil is helping somewhat, along with low dose 5-HTP. But I'm just trying to get the brain to heal.

          • Wow... I was expecting this article on fat-free half-and-half to be something I could settle back and snicker at smugly.

            Dr. Weil actually hits this one out of the ballpark! Kept expecting him to eff up and backpedal into CW.

              Just one of the many (many) reasons why all my friends and I got fat that semester.

              I really wish I didn't know that TJ is now selling this...

                • Not funny, but when editing my aunt's wedding photos, I noticed that pretty much all of the adults had wheat bellies. I don't like that this is just a generally accepted part of "getting older" nowadays (most people there were middle-aged).

                    My favorite cookie of all time. I'm going to make a butter version, and just mix in all the speculoos (Dutch = Speculaas) ingredients except the flour.

                      • I was checking out a website to calculate your body fat and they had a link on the bottom for how to lose weight and how to gain weight. just for fun, I clicked the how to gain weight link and check it out:

                        "The best way to add weight is to increase your intake of complex carbohydrates, particularly whole grain ones. Foods like whole wheat bread, muffins, pasta, crackers, and bagels are good to include. Also, legumes and fruits would be wise choices."

                        hahahah! we've known that all along and thats why we avoid this stuff teehee

                          Unfortunately I bet the lose-weight one said the exact same thing.

                                You have hit the nail on the head. The reality of "cravings" is your body is trying to get you to eat what it needs and not eat what it doesn't want/need. Food "addictions" IMHO (which I had and disappeared like yours when I ate right) are because you are shoving in only tiny amounts of what you need and it's competing with foods like flour which take away more than give.

                                Addiction is your body screaming for the nutrients it needs.

                                Drug addictions are because of the nature (addictive) of the drug (including cigarettes) involved. They are designed and modified to be addictive (cigarettes) or it's a part of their nature to be addictive (heroin) therefore, avoid starting them at ALL COSTS.
