@mmmfood- Hahaha on the thought of Matt holding a gun to your head shouting, “Eat the food!” I didn’t mean to imply that you were whiny, but I was trying to give you a hard love pep talk, because it sounded like you could use it. When I was your age, it often took a strong nudge to find motivation, because I’d get distracted by things that didn’t matter. I’d like to see you find success.
I think fiber is somewhat overrated, but helpful in some situations. My current refined food diet doesn’t cause constipation, but it would if I increased my protein consumption much over 100-150 grams a day. When I eat more protein, the need for fiber becomes obvious.
I really think that there is a drug effect to refeeding. Many of my problems dissipated when I was binging on 5,000 calories a day, but my overall health gradually declined. You made an excellent point that binge behavior and restrictive behavior could have the same underlying psychological cause.
By the way, @Christinam asked me recently about temperature. I went to the doctor’s today to get a script for Ambien, because insomnia is one condition I can’t see to shake. The nurse got a reading of 98.6.
