    Groktimus Primal's - What I learned from Dr. Drew

    Groktimus Primal's - What I learned from Dr. Drew

    If you want a real understanding of addiction I recommend you read Dr. Drew Pinsky's book Cracked. He explains how someone who may have a biological tendency to be an addict or may simply have gotten hooked to make a bad life more bearable becomes dependent. There are brain changes in the nucleus accumbens which confuse the brain into believing the need for that particular substance is linked to their survival much like breathing. It becomes a low level survival drive (lizard brain) which can not be overridden by the logical, verbal, thinking portion of their brain (higher functions). Yes, it can be overridden temporarily but only battles can be won this way, the war will be lost because willpower is not strong enough or long lasting enough. That is why they say they are "helpless" (AA 1st step). You must want to change and be forced into circumstances that allow you change. No addiction is curable, only manageable by staying clean of the substance long enough while realizing that your life depends on it. People call this a "higher power" (AA 2nd step).

    When it comes to food addiction there is a saying that sums it up nicely... When you are addicted to drugs you put the tiger in a cage to manage it. When you are addicted to food you put the tiger in a cage but have to take him out for three walks per day.

    Luckily most of us are only addicted to carbs which are not required in the diet and most of us have at least a limited tolerance to them.

    Groktimus Primal's - Try this on for size

    Groktimus Primal's - Try this on for size

    I have never been a real clothes person. Although I am somewhat picky about what I wear it's most always been about what pleases me rather than following popular trends. Now that I've finally gotten down to a reasonable weight though I do find new clothes much more enjoyable. It seems as long as the new clothes are of a smaller size than the previous clothes it's a pretty enjoyable experience.

    Groktimus Primal's - First do no harm

    Groktimus Primal's - First do no harm

    I saw a news article today that stated that doctors were not focussing enough on end of life talks. I just wish more doctors would learn to do no harm. The preaching of conventional wisdom by those in respected positions are killing us faster than any of the "miracle" money making drugs are saving us.

    Groktimus Primal's - n=1 Journal

    Groktimus Primal's - n=1 Journal

    I finally bought a copy of Mark's experimenter's journal. I plan on using it as a model to create a Google form to help me keep track of changes. It's really well done but I know I won't use a paper journal or anything quite so advanced as Mark provided.

    I'm going to Maine so I won't be posting again until Monday.

    Groktimus Primal's - Too Funny plus Red Meat

    Groktimus Primal's - Too Funny plus Red Meat

    Well I'm back from vacation and fatter than ever! I didn't go off plan but I did eat liberally so I expect most of the weight is water and food in my system. Also it's biologically impossible to gain 9 LBS in 4 days.

    Here is something hilarious... Target called their large size dress color "Manatee Gray" while calling the regular size dress "Heather Gray".

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-22044793

    They are attacking red meat again saying that the carnitine in the meat is eaten by a bacteria in the gut and poisons the heart. Now here is the funny part... Carnitine is one of the main reasons red meat is good for you because not only is it a life giving amino acid but it is the one primarily responsible for helping you burn fat!
