    Walnut flower essence for akrasia

    Primal Fuel
    I know Mark posted something about akrasia, acting against your own best interest, a while back. I have had a hard time the last few years and have not been as able to stick with my health resolutions as easily as I used to. Though I am pretty strict I constantly think about cheating on the diet, don't want to do things I know I should like lift weights etc. It seems everywhere you turn there is someone saying this way of eating is a fad, unhealthy, unscientific etc- it seems like there is a lot of opposition.

    Anyway, I have used the Walnut flower essence off and on over the years to help me stick with changes like eliminating wheat and dairy, going to the gym etc. The last time I took a whole bottle, in 2006, I added meat to my diet, went stricter against grains and joined a gym. I think this is a really useful essence for people who know they should do primal but just can't stick with it for whatever reason.

    Isn't this just a bit too much like the Chinese eating rhinoceros horns to make their pricks big and strong?

    But since you aren't killing endangered species to take the stuff... by all means... go right ahead.

    yes, this is woo science crap at its finest. unsurprisingly. essence of walnut flowers will stop you from acting against your own interest. far be it from me to tell people to skip useful placebos, but a placebo this certainly is.

    Don't knock something you know nothing about and have never tried. Nope not a placebo. Some very interesting things can happen very quickly from using essences, but of course you will never know because your mind is closed. Hmm, I think I'll put my blog link back up- definitely part of my "live skinny" philosophy.

    Why post on things you have not the faintest understanding of? Oh that is right, you've been PRIMAL a few months.

    I do however have the intelligence to know the difference between science and complete bunk... Enjoy your placebos.
