Amazingly i’m doing ok in my quest for health. I lost 25 pounds already in this first 35 days. I still have a long way so i gotta feel determined to go on since the fear of health issues that made me start this diet so well already faded. I feel really good eating less and doing 45 mins od stationary bike everyday. Sometimes there’s a huge crave but it goes away. The changes in routine are the most scary thing now. I’m 100 percent then i go to a dinner in a client’s house. The food is all full of calories so i gotta eat less than usual. I get home starving and i try to remember: One day at a time. It will pass and tomorrow everything starts again. It makes one wonder how crazy is our relation with the fuel we need to survive. As i read in history men have starved for millions of years. Before the last 5 thousand years men were not very good in finding and keeping food so men starved and died of hunger. Probably that’s why we feel so helpless when we have to avoid food. It’s going against an old instinct forged in our DNA to keep us alive . Yes… It’s hard to go against your own nature. But not impossible. Of course the very developed food industry now creates the inverse situation. Food is too easy to find even when we don’t want to so we lost the measure of how much is healthy to consume. I hope some day there will be signs in Big Macs like those signs the put on cigarette boxes. ” Surgeon general warning: This burger may destroy your heart and may give you colon cancer” or ” Surgeon general warning: this milkshake can make you forget the name of your wife” or even ”  Surgeon general warning: This chocolate may complicate your diabetes and make you loose your legs”
