    And no, eating whatever you want, whenever you want wont automatically balloon you up to 500lbs. If you could truly eat like our bodies intended, it would autoregulate hunger and use/dispose of calories. Thats my poit exactly. Does the stres from knowingly not listening to your body cause more harm then just eating what you want, when you want?
    what my body wants and what i want is carbs. no matter what the form those carbs take, when i indulge and eat rice and potatoes and fruit as much as i want my pcos rears it's ugly head, uglily

    what is your suggestion for me?
    beautiful

    Craving and then eating to your cravings is pretty unnatural and disordered.

    Only because it makes you feel good. Eventually the novelty of all foods wears off. I don't crave anything, which I consider to be at a healthy relationship with food. I don't deny myself whatever odd craving I have, but I eat depending on how I feel. The novelty of all food eventually wears off and you find yourself naturally gravitating towards more nutritionally dense foods 9/10 times.

    Believe it or not, a day in the life of Derpamix doesn't consist of a 12 pack of mexican coke.

    I can appreciate how laid back you are, but you have to realize that this community is full of Type A personalities that would rather die of the stress of trying to optimize their health than relax and eat a cookie.

    I don't have cravings and I do eat nutritionally dense foods all the time. I have a very healthy relationship with food. Delicious and life sustaining.

    Perhaps you exaggerate to make a rhetorical point but you do make it sound like you live off coke, gummy bears, and lots of highly sweetened coffee, OJ and milk.

    If only they realized orthorexia is more harmful than just eating that cookie.

    I could easily live off those things, but it's not all I eat. I consume a lot of oj and milk simply because they require no prep work and contain all the nutrition I really need. Raw milk is a complete nutritional package that could fully sustain me assuming I never get bored of it, which I don't, really, because I know other options are out there. I eat tons of fruit, some starch like potatoes and white rice as well.

    Point is, like you, I suppose, I eat what I want.

    Interesting, just wondering why you frequent this site as you are not really into the Paleo approach to eating?

    That's what you took away from that post? What is the paleo approach to eating? No one has a concise answer. The basic premise which people take away is clearly flawed, so maybe that's the answer to your question.
