Thank you SWOT. I had not seen the youtube video but I looked up just now the term and read an article. I had not heard before of this diagnosis. I agree with you wholeheartedly. I think my preoccupation with my weight is bordering on the obsessive and I am worried about my diet, too. I am worried by how much beef I am consuming. In the last 4 months my consumption of beef has increased 6x. How in the world could that be healthy? I rarely ate much meat before. I was going to try the WAHL's protocol that sounds very sound, good proteins and 9 cups of vegetables. But I am having trouble transitioning away from my current diet (meat.) This is for sure a red flag, I think. I read that a famous writer Michael Pollan believes the exact same thing as you do, that balanced, conscious, moderate eating, based upon meals, good food, and not excluding foods, or a hyper-focus on specific foods, per se, is the healthiest for mind, body and spirit. He critiques the Wahl protocol for the same reasons you do. I have been meaning to go back to the nutritionist largely because I was concerned that I was going off the deep end. I am at a weight that is within a couple of pounds from what is considered ideal for my weight (I typed heart by mistake. Freudian slip). Not just within the normal range and BMI for my height. Near the ideal. I mean. That is so ridiculous, I feel ashamed. And I am old. I mean, how crazy is it to want to go back to a weight I had 12 years ago, that was 15 lbs less, just because I will fit into all of my size 8's? What kind of nutcase would risk their health, to go down a size? I agree with you, SWOT. I think the Weight Watchers program is balanced and sane. It may be slow but it is not risky. I agree with you. The risks are both to body and to mind. I see that. I am going to go to Weight Watchers, and use their support not so much to lose weight, but to get back eating healthily. (This is not a paid advertisement.) Thank you, SWOT.
