    Matt, could you say a few words about the difference between your concept of ‘metabolism’ and what conventional medicine means by the word?

    Related to that…I sometimes come across people online who claim to have a fast metabolism. They usually say they are underweight and have a hard time gaining, no matter how much they eat. What do you think is going on there?

    Scott’s “sample day” food listing hardly seems like a “Matt Stone diet”…2/3 of the calories are from liquids or fruit. Not exactly eating for heat.

    I noticed it calmed my anxiety markedly to breathe that way. That’s short-term, though. The trick is keeping it up.

    Re the metabolism slowing down, it makes me think of reaching a state of transcendental consciousness, pure consciousness, through meditation. In that state, breathing slows way down and can even be suspended, and I think other metabolic processes are also slowed or suspended–digestion being one of them. Perhaps slowing breathing way down can decrease anxiety by putting one in some degree of such a state, which then also slows the metabolism.

    You can get away with that when you’ve got DM*.
