My current path is to experiment with various Diets, Ways-of-Eating, Lifestyles, "non-diets" in a random manner .......
....... whenever it seems to me that one of these might become helpful in my own weight-loss and maintenance.
Previously I shared that in the last few months, I've been investigating the "3 Principles" concept, with a focus as to how that might impact my own ways of eating.
DietHobby's Blog Category - The 3 Principles contains several videos of Julian Frasier, who claims weight-loss success based on his understanding of the 3 Principles. In a recent video I saw him make the following statement about what led to his weight-loss:
"I realized it's all made up.
It's Just Thought.
I stopped following my urges to go and eat."
I found this statement to be quite meaningful, and have been pondering it for a while now, wondering if, and how, it might apply in my own situation. At this point what seems to be clear to me that every type of eating I engage in involves some type of "urge to eat". So for me to eat ANYTHING always involves a choice of WHICH eating urges to follow or not follow at any given moment.
I have learned that my own physical hunger pattern is dependent upon whatever eating pattern that I establish. Eating a lot makes me physically hungry for a lot of food. Consistently eating very little makes me physically hungry for very little food. However, my own extensive study and experimentation with "Intuitive Eating" has shown me that - for me personally - the "hunger and fullness" concept is far too vague to be useful. For past writings on the Intuitive Eating concept, check out DietHobby's ARCHIVES.
For the past ten+ years I've counted and recorded the calories in the foods that I eat daily, - even when I was experimenting with Intuitive Eating plans - and this counting-recording process has become a sustainable habit for me. However, it seems clear to me that for right now, In order for me to continue with my current 3 Principles experiment re eating, I need to set some additional, simple, eating boundaries for myself.
So my current update is that after looking at a great many past diets with which I've previously experimented, I've chosen to add the eating boundaries of the "No S diet" to my current 3 Principles experiment. Some of my past writings about the No S diet can be found within DietHobby's Blog Category - The No S Diet.
