I've been in ketosis for almost 3/4 of the past 30 days (confirmed with blood ketones) and can't really tell a difference. The one thing I've noticed is that after a hard workout, I no longer get hit with a hypoglycemic headache and feel the urge... (more)

Dutchie, If you truly drink alcohol because of emotional reasons, you probably need to quit and stay quit. If you do you will experience life on life's terms. When you drink to handle emotions you simply stunt your emotional growth and cannot... (more)

I understand the purpose of fear, pleasure, and anger (fear of death/anger/fighting for survival, pleasure from sex/reproducing etc), but what purpose would sadness have served? Or is sadness a modern thing?
