Mutant Diet Phase 6 Day 22 – The Restart

My last entry was Jan 26 and I’ve been dealing with a family member’s critical illness. Every time I went to the hospital or considered what led to this illness I am inspired to go to the gym.

With the exception of a few of the days, which were travel related, I did go to the gym or do yoga. The benefits just from stress management I think are real.

But there’s no doubt that the presence of distressing things happening around you lead you to the easy-to-access high calorie food.

A book I’m reading “The Diet Fix: Why Diets Fail and How to Make Yours Work” has some interesting points wherein the author debunks some myths, but as far as I can tell, he still has trouble with calories. For example, if there’s no real connection between the calories burned on a treadmill and the ones consumed as food, why is Dr. Freedhoff (the author) still using this measurement?
