- Start with bacon grease… Lots and lots of bacon grease. (If you don’t save yours, you can get some here)
You are not used to eating food, that is the problem! Food is fuel and makes you feel ready to go! Food does not envelop you in euphoria. Food does not replicate the feelings of love. Food doesn’t make your head tingle as your pleasure center is triggered. That is mood alteration, not food. Your central nervous system cannot tell the difference between the ecstasy of opioids, alcohol, cannabis, meth, cocaine or candy bars!
That’s an excellent question and a very fair question. We have already said that it’s not normal for a human to gain weight except for pregnancy and illness. That is all true. Some people want to compare us to hibernators who gain weight for the winter and lose it in the summer. The problem with that analogy is the hibernating animal does not get chronic illness accompanying weight gain. And the hibernator gains regardless of whether its diet is restricted in a laboratory or not. And the weight comes off without any changes in diet as well.
The issue that just won’t go away, “too much protein” has taken another turn because a more visible person has adopted the theory. ZIOH (and ZCH) has been pretty clear about our position but Dr. Paul Mabry has invected some new arguments in a recent blog post. Because this is such a divisive issue within ZC communities, it’s important to define and sharpen our definition in the face of competing ideas. There are many things that appear close to ZC but are not the definite article. Hopefully, this post will set this aright for you and as always you’re free to make up your own mind.
