My friend Ross who is supporting me on my Health Rally, recommended this blog post, “Thinking about Diets and Other Complex Matters” by Bill Gurley, a VC at Benchmark Capital. It’s a good post, and has great references. I’ve already downloaded, “Why We Get Fat” on Audible.
I think there is a lot of truth to the complexity issue he’s pointing out. That there are no simple solutions to weight loss (or gain for that matter). I’m beginning to think I need to try every possible theory that is out there.
Even though it doesn’t make logical sense, I find my weight really fluctuates day to day, regardless of what I eat or the exercise I do. A few days ago I was .5 away from losing twenty pounds, but the next day, I had gained 1.5 (for no apparent reason). So, I’m still battling with that last pound. I should probably just stop weighing myself.
I will say this, however. I feel better. I’ve had a tough time with acid reflux over the past few years (tmi, I know). But, it’s essentially GONE. Really gone. I have seen other dramatic improvements in other bodily functions, but I won’t delve into those details. So, if for no other reason than to feel better, I’m motivated to keep reinventing myself.
