Re: The anti-vegan diet

My friend tried it for quitting smoking, she said it didn't work. Smoking might be harder than weight loss though, physical addiction is ROUGH.

I looked at one therapist group and they seemed to hedge quite a bit. 'Weight loss is one of the more challenging for hypnotherapy." Read something else that said Cognitive Behavioral Theory along with hypnotherapy was effective according to studies (that i didn't bother to check myself.)

I took the GRE recently and got 98 percentile for the verbal section. It made me realize that I've kinda short-changed myself a bit due to poor discipline. I'm not good at steady, consistent action long term. Hence the crash dieting.

Tony Robbins's RPM plan really resonates with me. It seems to be a very convincing explanation on the loss of motivation over time. I may try it out. Not the $5000 seminars or even the $300 programs, but the free-on-Apple-Music versions.

The basic idea is that we are moved to change based on a disturbance. The pain of some condition becomes intolerable. Absent this, we coast. So the disturbance (can't fit into any clothes) motivates action which produces some result, in this case some weight loss. As you lose weight the pain diminishes and so you take less energetic action and get weaker results.

Pretty reasonable, and I recognize that pattern in myself. His system makes you consciously identify and feel disturbances that may at present be under the surface in order to motivate you to address them via a "massive action plan" that has very specific goals and metrics. Shines a light on unconscious processes. We'll see if it works for me.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

I had dinner with a friend last weekend. She told me she's doing a weight loss program where she had to pay 600.00, but if she makes her goal weight by a certain deadline she gets all of the money back, if she doesn't, they keep it. She might not make goal weight by the deadline.

Nice on the GRE results. Are you going to grad school?

Re: The anti-vegan diet

I'm not sure if Healthywage is what my friend is doing. I can't remember what she said the program was called. It was weird we were talking about it at our table and one of the wait staff overheard us. He chimed in and said he did the challenge too and met goal weight by the deadline. I think my friend said she has 20 lbs more lbs to lose and there's only 3 or 4 weeks left in the program. I think that is cutting it close.

I suppose if the bet were large enough I'd be scared into compliance, but I'd rather learn to master my will w/o stunts. That's a bigger ask, considering I've got a lifetime of habit to overcome.

Actually I got 170/170 for verbal, 99th! But only 65th on math. I only studied on the night before, so I didn't get enough of a refresh on stupid shit like permutations and combinations. I'll have to take the test because I'm applying for CS grad schools and want better math than that. But I'm somewhat afraid of tainting that 170 perfecto now.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

You are very smart. That's evident by the brand of humor you put on display here. I might go through their little setup wizard to see what my winnings would be. I feel like I could win this one, vs. my track record with Texas Hold 'Em and the Lottery <- I'm not really a lottery player, but I was in a pool at work for a short time.

Thanks for indulging my shameless bragging. This is one of the only places I can be that tacky .
