    BLE has split my mind in relationship to food – hunger driven behavior vs. addiction driven behavior. It’s crystal clear on a daly basis. The “best” thing I eat is yogurt+oats+fruit – 100% BLE, no addictive component. Many other sublime examples. Addictive driven eating – candy, cookies, chips, ice cream – lower quality and even if it’s the best piece cake in the world, I will feel diabetes related crappiness, So…

    My latest scheme is: – when, after 6pm, when addictive driven, dopamine pathways are triggered – I plan to eat BLE breakfast again – if that doesn’t do it then eat BLE lunch again. avoiding at all costs falling over lines 1 & 2 (sugar and flour) and technically only violating 3 & 4 in adding a 4th or 5th meal – still measuring everything. Doing that everyday, I would expect to lose very little if any weight. It is the oral fixations and keeping your hands busy aspects of compulsive eating that I’m attempting to address. I need to make BLE more elastic as opposed to being on it or off it.

    The talk by Dr. Early you mention from the food addiction conference was really very interesting – Thank you for talking about it. But like trying to figure out how to defeat an enemy – knowing that he’s bigger, stronger, and faster than me (and will never give up) still leaves me without a strategy to fight or as I prefer to think of it without a big enough bag of tricks – I’m more of a magician than a warrior.

    I just got done reading Atomic Habits and this aligns so closely with what he says.
