Transform Your Life

Imagine waking up and not having food rule your thoughts.  Imagine not feeling guilty or filled with regret about your food choices.  Imagine not white-knuckling your way through a day because today is the day you will start being “good.” Imagine not fearing real food; wondering if a banana has too much sugar or if carbs are making you fat.  Imagine trusting that you can eat more than just chicken and salad.

Why You Have No Willpower (and what to do about it)

A friend sent me a song to listen to yesterday, Jerry Garcia's live version of Dylan's "Going, Going, Gone." It's a beautiful 15 minute ballad performed in Garcia's distinct style. He opens with the usual song lyrics and after a few minutes he breaks into a bluesy jam that continues uninterrupted for 6 or 7 minutes.
