    Strengthening Willpower Article

    Primal Fuel
    Interesting article on how to improve willpower:

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

    The authors note that people with the highest levels of self-control are only slightly better than average at controlling their weight, and they describe disturbing experiments that confirm the old saying “When the penis stands up, the brains get buried” (it sounds better in Yiddish).
    I liked that part. Also, I like your signature. It is so true. Even something as benign as 1 serving of salad dressing can have as much sugar as a whole serving of fruit.

    It's good to make yourself accountable to someone; a friend, a spouse...ideally someone who's approaching their own goal as well.

    I agree! A buddy can be a big help, too. I had a walking bud for years, then moved, and have wished a zillion times I could find one where I am now.
