Eating in a Paleo-ish food template (lower carb, higher natural fat, very low processed foods) is like life in color vs life in black and white. It's life, but through a very rich color filter.

What's working now: Paleo-ish food template
I eat, I feel full,
I live life with normal activities and thoughts,
I feel normal hunger, just a little bit,
I eat, I feel full, more living life
I have natural sleepiness, I sleep
Wake up feeling rested
Eat, live, be present, rest, repeat
|Life in Black and White|
What didn't work in the past: Eating Grains and Sugars, and food emulsifiers (guar & xanthan gum
I'm starving, I eat all the things,
I rarely feel full, I eat more
I go about my day, when can I eat again?
I need to eat, find a place to binge, food seek,
Did someone bring treats, can I eat them in secret after eating them in public?
I eat, I binge,I'm starving,I don't feel full,
When can I eat again? Because I've blown it
I binge, I feel terrible, I'll start tomorrow.
I wake up groggy and not well rested
Eat, Repent, Repeat
I can live life either way. One is better. I feel better. I wouldn't trade a sugar laden or grain food for the new life. I feel so much better.... I choose this. I feel better.
Okay, that's enough deep thoughts for this morning. Here's to finding living color.
