the 'you are not so smart' thread seems to be missing or off limits to me, but i will read the others and already read the candida one as you suggested and really relate there..Nienna said:Laura said:Somehow I get the feeling that you don't really know what you are doing, Fluffy. That's just an impression I get from your responses, remarks, suggestions. Have you read the entire "Life Without Bread" and "Ketogenic Diet" threads? Have you watched the videos posted in this thread? If so, you would probably know more about the ketone test strips.
I quite agree with Laura.
Fluffy, it was suggested to you here and you replied:

I know everyone is different, but a couple of weeks Paleo weans you off stuff more subtle and you have more varieties of foods to eat (as we are programmed to do). I am by far not an expert, so if there are more knowledgeable folks here who want to contradict this approach please go ahead.
I'm an all or nothing person, might as well go straight for the keto, paleo is good but have you seen the so called sweet paleo recipes ... I spend all day looking up paleo desserts ;)
I'm doing good, today is day one and I'm pumped and enthused, I could really use some discipline in my life right now coz I have very little else going on... I'm going to prove to my self that I can beat sugar.... Yeah, go me!!!!
Beating sugar is one thing, it is ill advised to just go straight into a ketogenic diet. It is said quite frequently on this forum that doing something just to do it, without understanding why and how to do it, is the wrong way to do anything.
There are so many things that have been discovered, found, discarded by many members here that doing either one of these diets without the many details and findings of the group is fairly detrimental to you health, both physically and mentally.
You seem to have a cavalier attitude about everything you post about. You don't ever question your own thinking, even when things have been pointed out to you.
Along with reading the two diet threads, it would be good if you could, also, read, Thinking Fast and Slow and The Adaptive Unconscious.
The thing is, you say that you could really use some discipline in your life right now, but, then, just jump in to the KD without any discipline at all.
Added: You might, also, want to read the Candida thread. Since you say that you have eaten so much sugar and crave it, you most probably have candida; and it would be the little critters that are screaming for the sugar more than you are.
thanks again, sometimes we all need someone to pull us inline a bit..
