Churchill said something like "Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm."
Or the stoic concept - success is living well until we die well. Well is being virtuously, so that we can say if there was wrong done, it was not by us.
It feels like there is an inverse connection between weight loss and willpower. I am more successful at weight loss and maintenance when I do not care and do not try.
That suggests that overeating is a willpower driven property, the greater the willpower expressed, the greater is the drive to overeat. It is physically and unconscious driven, and it is up to the conscious to overcome. Most of those who I see recovering are obsessed with measuring, recording and similar weight loss obsession. Is that the only release from this problem?
So if we are truth seeking, what is the truth with respect to overeating? Who knows? All we can say for sure is CICO is the physics equation of the whole problem, but metabolism and Atwater factors change with CI and CO. So where does that leave us? With our asses hanging out in the wind and no government cares enough to understand or provide any workable solutions or funding for workable solutions. They do fund a system that is a failure for most, where information is doled out individually for a fee, by the elite (Capital Health). It make me think that they do not know the solution either. Anyone with ongoing weight loss/ maintenance knows as much as they do.
