THE HEALTH STUFF
so here we are a new day a new moment and time to check out what is new within our collective understanding of Nutrition. Everything I put in here comes from the research I do during the day. But mostly this is a place where I am looking for my own “Healthy”.
I have a new way of approaching things whereas i had standard things I took as true and false, good and evil, black and white and even gray. I now take the position of my strongest beliefs I give 90 % allowing 10% to be an open door to a new perspective not driven by an effort to defend my assumptions.
DISCLAIMER (I am so not a Doctor, or even really that smart) Check everything you read first don’t take anything from one source. I usually make sure all the info I communicate is based on Scientific research but things I’m sure to slip by I am no Robot.

“Unconventional Medicine” by Chris Kresser // Interesting style, I am actually a huge fan of using what you eat and do(movement/activity) as your health care.
Like, treat your food as medicine. I also understand the imposable uphill effort it is to try and change your habits. It helped me to stop looking at things like I understood them. This opened my mind to a more bias-free approach to influencing the reward outcomes of my behavior. I gave up on free will and also the idea of determinism both are really out of my control. It seems that free will is a farce but hey why not. What I have noticed with my own body is that once I put a tight control of what was going in by just eliminating any saturated oils and processed sugar, like 3 weeks in a literal cloud lifted from my brain relieving some inflammation of my stress’s like thoughts became clear for the first time in my adult life.
Now I’m like “fuck sugar”, for me. I mean I understand how people define themselves social with the objectification of things so that a common understanding can produce a feeling of connectivity and this is like super important to a healthy life so it might not really work to give up sugar for everyone. That said it does feel a little like the part in “THEY LIVE” where Roddy roddy piper puts on the glasses and sees all the billboards and gross skin jobs. But just with cutting out sugar it stopped me from going out to eat, and I started cooking every day which was easy if you don’t get in your own way with telling your self that you don’t want to do it.
so to actually implement change in my routines I had to go into the mind….
Though I don’t really think there is a difference between the mind and body There is a distinct separation when it comes to mental processes and physical inflimation.

“Cognitive Therapy Of Depression” by AAron Beck, A. John Rush, Brian F. Shaw, Gary Emery //
I have been interested in Cognitive behavioral therapy(CBT) as a form of dealing with the feelings we associated with emotions. It has a lot I’m not that into like most phycology but just because I am not really into it does not mean I do not engage new ideas and CBT is interesting because unlike a lot of talk therapy there is a time limit and goal oriented structure to how it is applied.
I mean really I am just like what the fuck is going on in there? why have I felt the way I have or reacted the way I do, it seems so automatic yet I take so much credit for the bad and let the good slip by unnoticed.
what cognition seems to be is like two states of presence i call them flow and beat. we are in flow pretty much all the time this is our routines like waves and the water its self. then there is beat which is the action of impacting these routines with new acting forces. like dropping a pebble into the water and seeing its ripples slowly spread or get completely overcome by the state of how your flow is. Beats can happen super frequently but because of there impact only last for a brief moment.
