Thank you Kris for the psychological approach to how we should eat and see food. It is a tool and needed thing as you say. As a kid I was told constantly I was over-weight, or fat. I was rail-thin when I look back at photos. I literally ate until I was what everyone called me. I got up to 280 lbs. at 5'10 in high school. Then at 18 I lost weight at an alarming rate until I was 140 lbs. Yes, I actually was half the man I used to be. I found out I was type 2 diabetic, and that was why I lost so much weight. Unchecked diabetes is a great way to lose weight. It will kill you eventually, but you can lose inches off your body.

Now I am type 1 diabetic and have MS. I used my own hair brained Keto diet, 52 carbs a day now, and selective fasting to keep weight off. I do have 3 doctors doing blood work at least twice a year, so I know whether or not my eating is hurting me at least. I eat all food as soon as I get up and don’t eat until the next morning. That is how I live for now.
