As an ex-obese & insulin resistant person, it is very easy to have the craving - eat -crave cycle start, and then need to resist strong cravings for three days to get out of the cycle.
One over size meal with perhaps as little as 10 grams of omega 6 oil is all it takes. That is just a bit of salad dressing. Cravings. Willpower. Good orderly direction required. No wonder I went through life obese. It is no wonder about the failure of diets rate.
Omega 6 oils are evil, as are the people who promote them, and there spawn. In the Buddhist tradition, looking at ones livelihood is one of the areas of examination. All employment dealing with poisons are discouraged. That would include Monsanto, farmers of all the omega 6 feed stocks, processors, Mezola, and Rusty Butz.
Anything that contains Omega 6 oil should probably be given up. Or at least anything that does not have at least 1/2 as much omega 3 as 6. That may be why braised beef is more filling than roasted beef... some of the oils have drained out... mainly omega 6 in partly grain finished beef, like is typical in Alberta.
Insulin resistance occurs at a cell by cell level, as each individual cell becomes full of glucose/glycogen. This is normal. What is not normal is eating starch to the point that all the muscle cells are full, and most (all ?) the fat cells are full. That is what medicine defines as insulin resistance.
Excess fat accumulation appears to be the first step toward diabetes. To much glucose and Omega 6 oils are the sure method of getting there. Sugars and grains provide to much glucose, plain and simple.
Cravings are correlated with the first signs of insulin rise in my case. How about that. Eat less than 50 grams of carbs and no (little) omega 6 and have no cravings. How about that.
