I am completely flabbergasted by the way "Strong Medicine" is STILL working. If you follow Dr. Donaldson's directions perfectly, you lose weight at a steady predictable rate. If you occasionally make a minor diversion, you MAY do even better.
Yesterday, my porky breakfast was overlarge, and my lunch appetite didn't appear; i varied things up with half a small acorn squash with butter and a couple of ounces of sake in mid-afternoon. Then i had my freshly-crockpotted chuck roast for supper (without the coffee) ... and found myself down a WHOLE pound this morning.
Why, in the names of all the gods at once, is this book not still in print?! I'm forever in the debt of that dear lady, H, who recommended it -- and i'm going to change the template of my post in her honor, because she mentioned the current one bothers her eyes!
So far, today has already been stellar in the blogging world, with Pal Jabekk and Zoe Harcombe contributing intelligent, fact-rich, applicable-in-vivo-as-well-as-in-theory articles. One can read a long time without picking up stuff that one can actually USE....
As a matter of fact, Mr. Jabekk wrote a very good essay last year, on the subject of "setpoint theory" which i agree with intellectually as well as through experience. I've always HATED the acceptance this HYPOTHESIS has so long enjoyed, as it's absolutely unfathomable by my "instincts of rightness" ... or call it "intuition"! Sorry, but when my subconscious mind puts the brakes on believing in something, i've learned (over 56 years) that it pays to heed it!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, everyone!
