I forgot an anecdote from last night while I was shopping for keto food. So I’ve got bacon, cheese snacks, spinach, celery, you name it in my cart, and I began to head down the frozen meal aisle to pick up some convenience Atkins lunches. (Keto and Atkins are not the same thing, but close enough.)
As I get closer, I see a couple standing in front of the freezers and discussing the contents.
The guy asks, “Atkins? What’s that?”
The woman responds,”I don’t know, some stupid diet that doesn’t work. It’s bad for you.”
At that exact moment, I said,”Excuse me” and they politely back away from the freezer. I started pulling out frozen Atkins meals and put them into my cart. Behind me, I could hear the guy backpedaling. “Oh, maybe something changed and it works now.”
I didn’t acknowledge them in any way but internally I was split between laughing and resignation. I’ve heard a lot of ignorance from people who rely on 70’s nutritional science that they learned in 1st grade. /iamverysmart
I’m sure people are like,”Yeah, that happened.” The timing was just great. I walked up right as they started shit-talking. Awkward.
Ugh. Today’s Friday, and while I’m happy that it’s Friday, I feel so isolated. Husband’s barely been home the last few days, staying late at work to finish up a customer’s deliverable due today. And today he’s too busy to even chat a little. Guh.
I spend a lot of time watching Husband and Husband’s friends (the Goody-Goods) interact on a chat board I have access to. It’s nice. Makes me feel like they’re friends for a little while. Only, I can’t say anything or chat with them. Too weird, too scary, too un-likeable, too.. unwholesome? Buh.. I just want to talk about cats, tv shows, anime and memes with people. Need to keep busy, find something to do..
Oh, right, supplements. I can talk about supplements I’m taking. Super interesting. /s
I started taking a baby aspirin, four Elysium capsules, and four sulforaphane tablets a day, two of the latter with each meal.
I’m pretty excite about the sulforaphane. It’s some kind of wonder-molecule that primarily comes from broccoli sprouts, and has been touted (with scientific backup for much of it) to help with metabolism, slowing the pace of weight gain, diabetes, autism, you name it. Google that shi7 because I don’t have time for sources. My life is too fast paced, obv. I got a sulforaphane supplement that comes with an activator to increase bio-availability. Meaning I’ll absorb more of it then pee it out. Vitamins typically mean expensive pee. But you just have to find the right vitamins that create less expensive pee. The more you absorb, the less costly your pee is. Pee.
The Elysium? It’s useful, I think, but more useful for older people. Ah well. I really like the whole body-hacking thing. Body-hacking isn’t the right word for this.. Using substances to improve the working of mind and body, improving cognition and longevity. Nootropics covers the mind, but I don’t know if there’s an umbrella term for tackling both.
And now… END POST
