After watching that video by Dr. Lustig "The Bitter Truth" and after being on this diet for about a month. It seems like I wonder if we are eating too much and don't know when to stop. Robb says to eat to satiety and no calorie counting or measuring really and depending on self regulation. But I feel like we get full rather than satiated and our bodies do not know the difference until it is too late.
Seriously I think it is hard to know when to stop when you have eaten a certain way for many decades like we have. We are eating slower for sure but I do wonder if our sensors are fried when it comes to satiety and full. If the pancreas can be impacted by too much sweetners and diabetes takes over then why wouldn't other functions also be permanently impacted like the ability to know when to stop? Certainly rats have proven then can't stop eating sugar stuff in labs when tested.
Which leads me to this question. When I read about how fructose stores fat in muscles which is not good and turns off our natural ability to stop eating when full, it makes me wonder if there is some food connection to Fibromyalgia. My muscles tire easily and are extremely painful. Could foods such as fructose that like to store fat or whatever into muscles caused a short in muscles ability to regulate pain? If it can short out our pancreas what else can it fry?
I had been to a joke of a seminar at Kaiser Permanente for their Fibromyalgia patients about 3 yrs back. They didn't know what to do with us so they put us in a large conference room which we filled easily and handed out bibliography in hopes of sending us off on wild goose chases to keep us out of doctors waiting rooms. I like many women were upset at the presentation and lack of services they offered patience for this condition. Out of desperation and frustration this one women spoke up and said hey look around this room, we are all women and we are all heavy, this must mean something. Kaiser liked to hand out drugs and track this as pain management issues but since being on this diet my pain has decreased and they never talked to us about maybe a Paleo diet to reduce pain.
