I never intended to stay on this diet for ever.
I think that would be freaking insane!
I do think, however, that sometimes a little
extra push is needed to shake up (no pun intended)
the body and get it go move in a different direction.
Take, for example -
People who run in the rain?
Some would call that crazy.
Others would thrive on it!
People who fast for Spiritual reasons?
People who walk across the country.
People who work on dissertations.
Recitals. Films. Art.
Weight Loss For Life.
Really, any big project.
Raising kids, being a single mom
and going back to school. Now THAT's
hard AND crazy.
Army Basic Training.
Coming to America.
Getting Married. The wedding plans
are never the same as the actual marriage.
Sometimes, we go "all out!"
Even giving birth.
Not the most pleasant task, I'm told.
Might be painful. Might should avoid it!
People who try "fad diets"?
Modified Protein Sparing is not exactly a fad....
But, in the true sense of the word,
at least they are trying something!
It won't hurt too many of us to miss some meals.
I have lots of Nurse friends who do the Master Cleanse
every year in January. In fact, Whole Foods has a display
on an end cap dedicated to it! Very popular.
Not everything that seems extreme is bad.
Maybe if a person were blind to the effects,
and kept on doing something - regardless of the cost.
Maybe that would be "bad."
But that is how most people binge.
That is not how most people "correct."
Maybe it's the old equal and opposite reaction thing.
I saw a video on a heavy guy running.
His nipples bled. No doubt had blisters, too.
And stinky, bloody shoes. At that point, I would say
"Stop the insanity!" But he kept on, and I am sure
he is someone's hero! Maybe even his own.
When you start on a project, it is good to
know what tools you have. And how to use them.
Tools of the mind, as well!
(Sometimes, I think it's all Mind)
And not for vanity. But to challenge our ideas of what
is possible. What we are, who we are... all that jazz...
Break out of a commercialized comfort zone that was taught to us
since birth. Learn Frustration Tolerance. Change our "Musts."
Love and Whey to everyone!
Unless you don't like Whey -
