the only thing I found objectionable (not necessarily offensive) was the inference about counting calories as an obsession.

Glad it wasn't offensive DDiva. I'm also NOT inferring calorie counting as an obsession (just to be clear ). I'm saying that for the people inclined toward obsessiveness or control, this can just be another avenue for it. I know I have a small dose of the control tendency in my nature -it's not a bad thing, but it can be a thing that predisposes you toward certain unhealthful behaviours/thinking. And with awareness of this, I can choose more helpful strategies/methodologies/activities in whatever arena. (Just recently I have started some medical treatment that works with/on this aspect of my nature, and I'm finding it really interesting!)

I'm not actually reading a book, but seeing a psychologist - a good one, because from an initial encounter with a psychologist decades ago, I would never have gone near one again! But this one is very human and very, very knowledgable, and very applied. I have homework every day, and it is bringing new insights to many areas of my life (some of them dietary),and the brain-body connection. The primary focus is to help a medical condition though...it just so happens that certain personality types are more represented in this illness than others, hence the 'new' branch of medicine that goes down the psychological path.
Again, glad I didn't offend (or say anything objectionable once explained!)

Darn!...I've been caught out! ...and here I was thinking that I was doing it all so subtly!
I have a personal theory about psychologists which I've held for years...I think they get into this field not so much to help other people figure themselves but to figure their own selves out!
Tams wrote:Oh, and no, my visits with the psychologist aren't related to weight directly or as a side-effect.
But I have a theory after these couple of visits, that some interesting ramifications may be revealed for how I eat - becasue how we eat is so entwined with our emotions, and our emotions so very much directed by events and our personality type. It's going to be interesting long-term, as a side-note to the main health focus.
The thing I have so far 'discovered' is related to relaxation. Earlier, in my 'personal progress', I made note of how I'd noticed my need to relax had become linked to eating naughty 'foods' (junk really). Of course I hadn't found a way to move forward with this observation. BUT...the very first session I had with the psychologist was focussed on me being ABLE to relax. So I have been given some more tools on how to calm and relax my mind and body. It is yet to be revealed as to whether a new ability to relax will circumvent (even a little) the junk cravings!
