3 PM is when the afternoon coffee run is made and the cookies and candy dishes are raided in offices around the world.

Sometimes a little snack will help. What worked for me when I was working at a music store was chili 'n cheese fritos of all things. Whole wheat bagels didn't help nor did Dr. Bonner's corn chips. Back then those fritos didn't have MSG in them either. Ayurveda is only a partial solution and not that well understood. It's basic biochemistry. Some sports doctors are better at solving these problems than GP's. On 10/01/2016 10:53 AM, steve.sundur@... mailto:steve.sundur@... [FairfieldLife] wrote: Energy level remains pretty good.

We spend years suppressing the sympathetic nervous system in fear of being rajasic. So we become more imbalanced toward the parasympathetic side. The whole yoga thing is to calm the sympathetic system but it's NOT supposed to weaken it. Indian's don't have to worry as they are naturally sympathetic dominant but some of us westerners, particularly creative types tend to be more parasympathetic dominant. We may have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, want to nap in the afternoon and eating like everyone else piles the weight on. We need coffee more than beer. TM talks a lot about the autonomic nervous system but I few understand it any more than folks here actually understand the nature of politics. Zing!

We become slow oxidizers and not just eating less and exercising more won't help. Often supplementation is needed to help restore the metabolism to more like it was in our younger years.

I'm not sure in what context you mean when you say, "any idea of what it's like to live with the feeling of being constantly hungry?" No, I don't. I rarely ever have the feeling of being hungry, and I wish to felt that way more often. No, I have never gone on a crash diet. My ongoing plan to lose about 25 lbs is to eat less. A little less all the time. I am having some success but not much. Losing weight, in my opinion must be coupled with some kind of exercise. I have not been doing much of that lately, either. As to the other issues, which you put in a context, I would say, of exploitation of women, I would have no comment, except that I don't see anything changing there, short of the continuing campaign hi-lighting violence against women, or domestic abuse. That has become a more hi profile issue, deservedly so, of course. To put a damper on girls aspiring to win beauty contests, or become cheerleaders, I think is a misdirected objective that can detour into political correctness issues, which can also become extreme. By the way, do you regularly feel genuinely hungry? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <salsunshineiniowa@...> mailto:salsunshineiniowa@... wrote : Steve, leaving aside for a moment how disgusting fat shaming…or shaming of any kind is... have you ever gone on a crash diet? Do you have any idea of what it’s like to live with the feeling of being constantly hungry? Not to mention whatever plastic surgery they feel they have to get for their one brief moment in the sun. Now maybe you could say she was being deceptive by accepting the role knowing she most likely couldn’t keep up appearances. But when someone’s “investment” is built on someone else denying themselves, for a whole year, basic sustenance, isn’t that already a major deception? That they all do to one extent or another and that seems to be just fine with Trump, the “owner” of the contest? And isn’t it time to start wondering when we’re going to finally retire and put to bed, permanently, such horrendous examples of fake femininity, fake male dominance, fake ideals of beauty, all built on these very young and most likely desperate women doing things to their bodies that used to be the stuff of science fiction. The*whole thing* is a sick and twisted deception. She most likely just started eating normally again, or however normally you can after doing whatever it is someone feels they need to do to whittle themselves down to a stick. Not to mention there's something truly disgusting about watching someone like Trump cavort and play mind games with these basically starving young women, all vying for his attention, while he goes back to the next lavish buffet as he decides which of them to make his plaything for the next year.

There is a certain expectation of physical appearance that I would think would go along with that role. Now, I would say that you should not ridicule or demean that person, but I can understand if the owner of the contest might think, WTF?
