THE CONSTANT REMINDER

My age is a constant reminder of my mortality. Old age is like an incurable disease with an expiration date. When we’re young it’s the crossing of the street or getting into a car that could end it all prematurely. It helps to lift the doom knowing the odds that it probably won’t happen and […]

OWN YOUR TRUTH

Open your truth. Have a look around; make your decisions from what you discover. Be the first or the last to take that trip. It doesn’t matter where you are in the pack – only that you’re in it. Fresh eyes won’t necessarily be your own, but fresh eyes are what you need to see […]

The Process Is What Will Get You There

Do the best you can with what you have to work with. Then you don’t need excuses. No excuses. Improvise. Get the job done to the best of your ability, not somebody else’s low expectations. When others don’t expect much from you, they see you as weak. When they expect too much, they show their […]

Skinny vs Skinny

Skinny plant-eaters are like skinny animal-eaters. They’re not that much into food, unless they’ve been bingeing and purging, and that happens in both categories. People into food don’t move their food around the plate conflicted over what to do with it. The smartest approach to take when assessing your own weight is not to compare […]

‘A Watched Pot Never Boils’

Distraction makes it boil faster, or so it seems. Watch your weight and see how long it takes to lose it. Look away and poof it’s gone before you know it? When I was a kid, I’d stay up till Mom got home from work, greeting her with a familiar face, a cup of coffee, […]

FOOD IS NOT AN ANTIDOTE FOR FATIGUE

When you’re tired, eating will not make you less tired, no matter what you eat. We often think we’re tired because we need to eat when it’s often eating that makes us tired. We want energy, so instinctively think more fuel in the tank will provide that. If your tank is full, and you’re still […]

What Can STUCK Do For You?

PEOPLE LOVE TO CROSS BRIDGES Even if it’s a bridge to nowhere, no one cares; they want to see what nowhere looks like. Blame our adventurous animal nature to seek beyond what we can see to find what we need to survive or better yet to thrive. We like the anticipation of not knowing what […]

People want you to do what they’re doing. It makes them feel more comfortable if you’re as fat as they are, or at least if you’re dining out together, that you eat as much as they do. Or eat the same kinds of food. Or drink the same drinks. Smoke the same cigarettes, wear the […]

Working It Out With The Main Brain

If my brain gets that I’m unpredictable in my food consumption choices within the category of animal-free, then that’s what it will expect as being okay with me. I’ll stay in the unpredictable category and my brain will rest easy with that, since there’s a lot going on there to focus on without needless worry […]

Fat-Cravings

After two weeks of reducing fat in my diet, I don’t crave it as much. Even if I start to eat something fatty, it’s easier for me to say no to more. That’s a healthful, helpful result of restricting the amount of fat I eat. Conclusion: The more fat I eat the more fat I want. […]

Unreasonable Food Expectations

People want me to take an apple and transform it into a thick, juicy, fatty steak, while keeping it raw, that when ingested will melt their excess fat baggage down the toilet in thirty days or less. Why don’t you just stop eating and drinking high caloric foods and beverages? Because when I lose weight […]

Dandelions Wanting To Make Your Wish Come True

Gain Reduce Or Stabilize

Cannabilizing other animals is not a smart weight reduction method – short or long-term. It isn’t healthy; it isn’t kind and neither is it efficient. Plants are the only wise choice to make when looking to gain, reduce or stabilize weight.

Lose It, Or Reduce It?

Nobody likes to lose, so ‘losing weight’ might not be the best phrase to apply to your goal of weight reduction. I’m not losing any weight. I’m not losing…is a positive phrase that every human loves to hear or to say to themselves. Yeah I’m NOT losing. I’m not a loser. I like that. Makes […]

Feel Your Weight

I want to feel my weight. Being numb to it isn’t helping to reduce it. When factoring in the time and effort it takes to wake up to it and stay awake, it isn’t worth whatever short-term benefit the ‘numb to it’ provided. So each day for a while, in my mind, I will weigh […]

We tend to think discipline is doing something we don’t feel much like doing, but we suck it up and do it anyway, because it’s good for us or somebody or something else. Quite the contrary. True discipline is finding that which we enjoy doing and then doing it. Suffering is not a by-product of […]

Eat-To-Store

It’s not the feeling of hunger we need to shut off. We who are fat rarely ‘feel’ hungry. We think it. And right now the brain is more powerful than the gut in those who are overweight. We feel full nearly all the time. It’s when the level of full drops a slight amount that […]
