I am not overweight but have been doing the overeating program to try and quiet the brain chatter I have about food and help my brain realize the relative unimportance of food. However, it seems like in the short-term I’m focusing more on food and having increased brain chatter as I work out a protocol and get used to new habits around food. Is the idea that once I’ve gotten Fat Adapted and am solid in my new habits that I will be able to devote less brain energy to what I’m eating and when?
I can see how most of the time and energy I’m devoting to food right now is just the drama my primitive brain is creating in response to change. What are my best steps for getting past this or should I just see it as a necessary part of the process?
