I've been struggling with what direction I want my journey into low carb advocacy to take. There are many people who cover a wide variety of subjects: Recipes, exercise, paleo-theories, biochemistry, even an excellent blog on evolutionary psychology. Several people cover these things and more from various angles and with differing styles. There are even a few folks who simply cover those folks and have done a large service to the community by doing so.
But I believe that our lives are not accidents and that the unique things we have each experienced and learned were given to us for a purpose and that purpose is, in part, to benefit our personal community. So rather than copy or tag along with someone else's style I spent some time learning what my own purpose is. I think, after about ten years of continuing success on different styles of LC diets, I have some general idea of the direction I should go. Now it's time to really give back to the community that has helped me so much.
And that's the point I want to make with this post. I'm not going to publish a best selling book. I'm not going to be a "Personal Trainer" and charge a lot of money. I'm going to do what I can to help the LC community and freely share the one thing which is fairly unique in my experience, about which I know the most and which has probably been both my biggest problem and the single thing which has helped me make it through this far.
I'm going to discuss the nature of addiction.
