So this is what feeling full feels like so this is satiety thank you to the Carnivore diet for satiel healing baby it's good for me
The focus of the carnivore diet is fat and high protein. Both keep you feeling full for a long time and help reduce overeating, potentially leading to weight loss. Sensory specific satiety is a sensory hedonic phenomenon that refers to the declining satisfaction generated by the consumption of a certain type of food, and the consequent renewal in appetite resulting from the exposure to a new flavour or food. If someone's stomach feels full, it may feel as though they have eaten too much food. The stomach itself may feel tight, stretched, or uncomfortably heavy. Depending on the cause, this symptom may occur alongside others, such as: a bloated or distended stomach. On a carnivore diet, you can eat red meat, poultry, fish, and eggs. The diet excludes all produce, as well as grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Dairy is sometimes allowed. Overeating occurs when an individual consumes more calories in relation to the energy that is expended via physical activity or expelled via excretion, leading to weight gain and often obesity. Overeating is the defining characteristic of binge eating disorder. Food addiction (FA) is loosely defined as hedonic eating behavior involving the consumption of highly palatable foods (ie, foods high in salt, fat, and sugar) in quantities beyond homeostatic energy requirements. FA shares some common symptomology with other pathological eating disorders, such as binge eating. The so-called keto flu is a group of symptoms that may appear two to seven days after starting a ketogenic diet. Headache, foggy brain, fatigue, irritability, nausea, difficulty sleeping, and constipation are just some of the symptoms of this condition, which is not recognized by medicine. The carnivore diet can significantly reduce markers of systemic inflammation (like C-reactive protein and IL-6). This is likely due to a few factors such as: The removal of potentially irritating plant-based foods that you may be sensitive to will immediately decrease inflammation levels. The carnivore diet does two things at once: It infuses the gut with the gut-healing benefits of bone broth while also eliminating harder-to-digest vegetables, legumes, grains, and nuts and seeds. In other words, it still allows a person to get beneficial nutrients while giving the gut a break from working so hard. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

My trials and travails with executive function disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
Executive dysfunction is a term used to describe the range of cognitive, behavioral, and emotional difficulties which often occur as a result of another disorder or a traumatic brain injury. Individuals with executive dysfunction struggle with planning, problem-solving, organization, and time management. People with executive function issues may have the following symptoms: trouble managing emotions or impulses. problems with starting, organizing, planning, or completing tasks. trouble listening or paying attention. short-term memory issues. inability to multitask or balance tasks. socially inappropriate behavior. Common signs and symptoms of EFD in adults include: Forgetting to complete tasks Inability to keep track of personal items like keys and cell phones Trouble following conversations Losing train of thought Difficulty remembering steps in a multi-step processes Inability to remember names Often late Problems breaking big projects into steps Trouble meeting deadlines Unable to multitask Difficulty remembering abbreviations and acronyms People may experience: Behavioral: aggression, excitability, fidgeting, hyperactivity, impulsivity, irritability, lack of restraint, or persistent repetition of words or actions Cognitive: absent-mindedness, difficulty focusing, forgetfulness, problem paying attention, or short attention span Mood: anger, anxiety, boredom, excitement, or mood swings Also common: depression or learning disability These, and other common manifestations of EFD may be apparent at home: You have something you want to ask your friend, but she is on the phone and you must wait a few minutes before asking. By the time she is finished, you completely forget what you wanted to ask. When you are talking with a friend, you find it difficult to follow the conversation, forgetting what your friend said just moments before. When you are completing a task with several steps, such as getting the trash, taking it outside, and then putting a new bag in the trash can, you usually forget the last step. When you read something, you usually end up going back to re-read the prior section because you can’t remember it. You constantly misplace your cell phone. You feel like you waste time every day looking for your phone and other misplaced items like keys or glasses. You have difficulty finding a work-life balance. When you try to take on personal activities, it’s hard to figure out how much time to spend on what. Symptoms of Executive Dysfunction at Work Adderall can help increase your ability to pay attention, stay focused on an activity, and control behavior problems.

The lifestyle of the squalid feral honey badger who lives in a high rise pigsty but has cleaners
People with ADHD who have a hard time keeping things tidy usually aren't being lazy or thoughtless. They have trouble with a group of skills needed to tackle cleanup tasks and stay organized. These skills are known as executive function. ADHD and Messiness It's important to note that not every person with ADHD will experience tendencies toward messiness or disorganization in their space. And for Messiness and ADHD · Tips for getting organized · ADHD treatment "We offer professional cleaning services exclusively for apartments and condos at budget friendly rates. We are the Apartment Cleaning or Condo Cleaning of choice in the Washington DC - Arlington, VA - College Park, MD area. Our focus is on quality and efficiency. We work in teams (cleankeeper teams) to get more done in less time. With more than 15 years of experience in the cleaning industry, we are proud to show off our skills." One study, The Art of Thought, by Graham Wallas is often quoted when studying creative minds. The study attempts to put order to the creative mind and figure out what makes it tick by assigning 4 stages to the creative process and combining it with 3 super-factors of personality. It’s funny because the study albeit lengthy and fastidious, is quite messy (after all it was done by a creative). It seems no matter how we handle the subject of creativity, we get our hands dirty. So how can we possibly bring order to the messy minds of creators? A new paper offers some hope. Psychologists Guillaume Furst, Paolo Ghisletta and Todd Lubart present an integrative model of creativity and personality that is deeply grounded in past research on the personality of creative people. Which brings us back to the beginning of this article. Creativity involves many different stages. Those who are capable of reaching the heights of human creative expression are those who have the capacity for all of these characteristics and behaviors within themselves and are flexibly able to switch back and forth between them depending on the stage of the creative process, and what's most adaptive in the moment. I told you creativity is messy. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

Moderate exercise done daily delivers exponential benefits in fitness and health compound interest.
The core idea of daily adaptation seems so obvious to me that it should not have to be stated. It goes against the grain for a competitive rower and rowing coach to advocate “moderate” rather than competitive rowing. Exercising every day seems extreme rather than moderate to many people. And rowing on a machine is not perceived as fun. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise One reason was to overcome the many misconceptions about rowing and healthy exercise. Many people mistakenly think rowing is not for everyone because it has to be strenuous and is inaccessible. The common idea of limiting exercise to three days per week also must be reconsidered. These two misconceptions bracket what this book is about. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise This book is based on a simple, self-evident truth: Your body adapts to how it is stimulated every day by tuning itself to do more of the same, only better. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise Your body is designed to be used more actively than occurs in the average, sedentary modern lifestyle. A simple conclusion follows from these two fundamental notions: A daily routine of breathing more deeply with moderate exercise will stimulate your body to develop greater fitness and energy. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise The worst bad habit is not to exercise. The most important good habit to develop is to exercise every day. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise The body responds daily to the activity it experiences whether we exercise it or not. For example, my body responds not only to the weight-lifting I do on Monday but also to my sitting at my desk, in airports, in the car, and in front of the computer and television on Tuesday through Thursday. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise The plan I set forth here is simple: Start rowing today on an indoor rowing machine. Do it easily, without pushing. And then continue to do it moderately every day, to the extent you can. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise Every day that you engage in exercise that safely and effectively causes you to breathe more deeply (but still comfortably) for thirty to forty-five minutes or more, your body will reward you with better lung power. Better lung power is the foundation of better fitness and that translates into yet more effective exercise. It is a cycle you will learn to use to your benefit. D.P. Ordway, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better: A Guide to Moderate Exercise Keep in mind that every day you skip, every day you do not engage in some exercise that causes you to breathe more deeply, you are instructing your lungs to become less efficient. The body does not coast; it declines without positive stimulus. D.P.

For the portion of the carnivore and carnivore-adjacent communities that don't rely on salt, the primary perspective for omitting it from your diet is that additional salt is not needed beyond the trace amounts already found in meat. Because of a resulting decrease in insulin levels, reducing carbohydrates to the amounts recommended by the ketogenic diet that contribute to exhaustion or lightheadedness due to the high sodium loss. You'll need to incorporate extra sodium into your diet to counter this. Since Atkins is a naturally diuretic diet, you don't need to avoid salt to minimize water retention. The symptoms can be the result of an electrolyte imbalance caused by losing minerals along with fluid. Low sodium levels can become problematic when your kidneys dump too much of it. This is one reason people experience side effects on low carb diets, such as lightheadedness, fatigue, headaches, leg cramps, and even constipation (6). The best way to avoid this issue is to add more sodium to your diet. You'll need to incorporate extra sodium into your diet to counter this. Most ketogenic diet specialists suggest that followers should aim to eat two to four grams of sodium (2000-4000 mg) a day. Note that the minimum daily sodium concentration (RDA) for regular diets is 2300 mg An extra half-teaspoon of salt can be enough for optimal blood flow. The Fix – Moderate salt on a carnivore diet, keeping your intake to ½ of a teaspoon of salt, going higher in the case of added exercise or the induction period. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

LMNT and Redmond's got what Carnivore Diets crave. It's got electrolytes! (Audio Fixed)
Joe Bowers : For the last time, I'm pretty sure what's killing the crops is this Brawndo stuff. Secretary of State : But Brawndo's got what plants crave. It's got electrolytes. What does Lmnt drink do? A tasty electrolyte drink mix that is formulated to help anyone with their electrolyte needs and is perfectly suited to folks following a keto, low-carb, or paleo diet. Products are automatically delivered on your schedule. Re-Lyte Boost Lemon Lime 254 grams Redmond Re-Lyte Boost is a clean energy drink that leaves you feeling focused and invigorated without giving you the jitters or causing you to crash. It gives you an amazing lift through an optimal blend of electrolytes, B-vitamins, green tea extract, beetroot extract, ginseng, Rhodiola rosea, and ashwagandha. The idea behind adding salt and other trace minerals to your diet comes from the biological breakdown of essential vitamin and mineral minimum requirements that you need. Sodium is “one of the body's electrolytes, which are minerals that the body needs in relatively large amounts. Electrolytes carry an electric charge when dissolved in body fluids such as blood. Most of the body’s sodium is located in blood and in the fluid around cells. Sodium helps the body keep fluids in a normal balance…[and] plays a key role in normal nerve and muscle function.” Your body, and more specifically your kidneys, are particularly evolved to maintain a proper level of salt (homeostasis), and can filter out any excess sodium intake as needed. Salt can also be particularly advantageous for those transitioning onto a carnivore diet to help reduce common negative side effects, with the most prominent one being known as “Keto Flu” or “Carnivore Flu.” This happens when your body transitions from carbohydrates as the main source of fuel and has to learn to transition to fat as the main source of fuel and energy. During this time, your body experiences three primary changes; water and sodium flushing, increased cortisol levels, and a potential decrease in T3 thyroid hormones. Common symptoms during this “flu” include headaches, cramping, brain fog, fatigue, and insomnia for up to 30 days during the energy source transition. Supplementing with high quality electrolytes and salt (options linked further below) can help during this transition time onto a carnivore or carnivore-adjacent diet. The positive effects of over consuming salt may include: Meeting the minimum daily sodium and electrolyte biological needs Easing the transition onto a carnivore diet Adding salt to taste to enhance the palatability of meat --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

Has the carnivore diet fixed my creaky knees?
A rowing machine used to simulate the action of rowing a boat can provide a great cardiovascular and strength workout for people with arthritis — working both your upper and lower body. First, rowing and resistance training are known as some of the best exercises for knee issues. This machine offers both! In addition to being some of the best exercise machine types overall, the Ski-Row has more customization options than most other machines making it even more ideal. Rowing machines burn fat, build muscle and can help rehab knees. Rowing machines provide excellent workouts. Total fasting induces within a few days a substantial reduction of joint pain, swelling, morning stiffness, and other arthritic symptoms in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This remission subsides slowly after discontinuation of fasting. The carnivore diet not only cuts out inflammation boosting foods like sugar, refined oils, and simple carbohydrates – it also actively decreases inflammation. Some research links red and processed meat to inflammation, which may increase arthritis symptoms. For example, diets heavy in processed and red meats demonstrate high levels of inflammatory markers like interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein (CRP), and homocysteine ( 5 , 6 ). Being in ketosis helps reduce inflammation, but it can also help you ease pain related to: Decreased nervous system activity. The nervous system is responsible for pain perception by the brain, which can be relieved with a healthier nervous system. Increased adenosine levels. Carnivore Diet can treat depression, anxiety, arthritis, obesity, diabetes, and more After trying multiple diets, Mikhaila noticed that after eliminating all foods except for meat, all of her arthritis symptoms disappeared in addition to her rashes and depression. Mikhaila credits the carnivore diet as having cured her from her autoimmune disease. Now I only eat beef, salt, and drink water. Same with my parents. It sounds extreme but this was the only thing that made the depression completely lift, and autoimmune symptoms go away again. I’ve been eating like this since December 2017. I will never go back.

State of the Union: Doctor Prescribed Carnivore Diet and Slow Rowing for the next three months

Watching Martha's Vineyard freak out about airlifted refugees is chef's kiss!
DeSantis, Fox News, and the Martha's Vineyard 'Stunt' On Tuesday, Venezuelan migrants flown to Martha's Vineyard sued Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for engaging in a duplicitous scheme to relocate them — a trip which was filmed and sent to Fox News as an exclusive. DeSantis admitted to his involvement in the scheme, but argued none of the travelers were forced to go. The attorneys representing the 48 people on those flights, however, claim that they were deceived into boarding — enticed with promises of jobs, housing, and cash assistance that never appeared. Philip Bump, national correspondent for The Washington Post, suggests that this was a made-for-Fox event, and explains how the flights fit into a broader strategy DeSantis has been crafting for years.

I don't think America's remotely close to Civil War, you thin-skinned wusses!
niOn January 6, 2021, Ashli Babbitt was fatally shot during the 2021 United States Capitol attack. She was part of a mob of supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump who breached the United States Capitol building seeking to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election. The Reichstag fire (German: Reichstagsbrand, listen (help·info)) was an arson attack on the Reichstag building, home of the German parliament in Berlin, on Monday 27 February 1933, precisely four weeks after Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch "council communist", was the apparent culprit; however, Hitler attributed the fire to Communist agitators. He used it as a pretext to claim that Communists were plotting against the German government, and induced President Paul von Hindenburg to issue the Reichstag Fire Decree suspending civil liberties, and pursue a "ruthless confrontation" with the Communists. This made the fire pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany. Born in 1899 in Brooklyn, New York, to poor immigrant parents, Al Capone went on to become the most infamous gangster in American history. In 1920 during the height of Prohibition, Capone’s multi-million dollar Chicago operation in bootlegging, prostitution and gambling dominated the organized crime scene. Capone was responsible for many brutal acts of violence, mainly against other gangsters. The most famous of these was the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929, in which he ordered the assassination of seven rivals. Urban terrorism has returned to Western Europe, with its perpetrators this time taking aim at new targets and pledging to strengthen cross-border cooperation. National government and NATO officials are not panicking. ``We'll cope,'' says one investigator here. But concern clearly runs deep in government and military circles, as well as among the public at large. Today's terrorists, mostly claiming to fight for leftist causes, have struck where their forerunners caused havoc a decade ago, mainly in West Germany and Italy. But they have also hit out in countries previously spared organized terror, such as France and Belgium. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

My cardiologist approved three months of the carnivore diet for me... tomorrow's my first day.
The carnivore diet might seem like just the ticket if you love meat enough to eat it for every meal (hello, Ron Swanson). In this diet plan, you do just that: eat meat or animal products for every meal. Unlike keto, which limits carbs to a certain number per day, the carnivore diet aims for zero carbs per day. You eat only meat, fish, eggs and some animal products; you exclude all other food groups — including vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. The carnivore diet boasts weight loss, improved mood, as well as blood sugar regulation. It was founded on the belief that high-carb diets are the cause of chronic disease. However, there are drawbacks to eating nothing but animal protein and zero carbs. Carbs get a bad rap. When you digest carbs, your body turns them into glucose to be used for energy. But if you’re not exercising regularly to burn those carbs, they can quickly turn into fat. Therefore, too many carbs can pack on the pounds quickly. “Carbohydrates are your body’s preferred energy source — what it’s accustomed to using for energy,” says Patton. “But if you don’t eat carbs, your next resort is burning fat. And that comes from burning fat in foods you eat or your own body fat.” She says people tend to feel good once they’re off carbs because they don’t have any wild swings in blood sugar, and eating meat is not as inflammatory. But she warns: Too much animal fat can cause inflammation too. According to Patton, the absence of carbohydrates is what leads to the weight loss associated with the carnivore diet, but carbs are your body’s preferred energy source. And you can have some serious side effects living off a meat-only diet. According to D.P. Ordway, our not doing anything physical is as much of a shock to our physiological and neurological systems as is running, cycling, and doing CrossFit; however, it's the wrong sort of shock. D.P. believes that we all should have a baseline of activity every single day and that should be at least 45-minutes every single day on a Concept2 Indoor Rower. I thought that was my idea but it's not! You all know how obsessed I am with slow jogging, right? I even fell in love with the book, Slow Jogging: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, and Have Fun with Science-Based, Natural Running, by Hiroaki Tanaka and Magdalena Jackowska. Mr. Ordway has written two entire books on what I was calling Slow Rowing, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better, which I am reading, and A Row a Day for a Year: Set a Goal—Track Your Progress which I just bought and placed into my Kindle queue. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

Even in the best of times Europe is expensive and people are obsessed with conserving resources and funds—especially Berliners who are militant about it
Scholars of German history, literature and cultural studies have created a long and rich scholarly tradition analysing the adoration of ‘nature’ in German Romantic, nationalist, Heimat, youth, and Lebensreform movements. Political scientists have also produced a voluminous literature on the origins and significance of Germany's Green Party and the ‘post-material’ values of the post-1968 generation. Germany is also well-known for its commitment to sustainable industrial development, as evidenced by one of Europe's best records in recycling, the regulation of industrial emissions and nature conservation. Yet ‘environmental history’, at least this field as understood among its North American practitioners, has remained underdeveloped among German historians until very recently. Franz-Joseph Brüggemeier's pioneering studies of air and water pollution control in the Ruhr area were part of a growing interest in Umweltgeschichte in Germany during the 1980s and early 1990s, but these did not immediately spawn a new generation of imitators. German environmental history has begun to mature rapidly in the first decade of the twenty-first century, however, spurred on by Mark Cioc's The Rhine: An Ecobiography, which introduced readers to a new kind of ‘history from below’ in which water, floodplains, forests and fish are active agents of political, economic and social transformation. David Blackbourn's prize-winning The Conquest of Nature, a magisterial survey of river canalization and wetland reclamation from Frederick the Great to the Federal Republic, stands out as one of the most influential books on German history published in 2006. It was the subject of a German Studies Association forum that engaged geographers, historians of technology and German historians in a fruitful conversation. The relationship between ecology, economy and culture remains at the centre of these and other new works, as well as contentious debates about the uncomfortable association between early twentieth-century nature conservation (Naturschutz) and National Socialist Blood and Soil policies, especially in occupied Poland during World War II. German History has invited five scholars to discuss the state of this new field: Dorothee Brantz (Centre for Metropolitan Studies, TU Berlin), Bernhard Gissibl (University of Mannheim), Paul Warde (University of East Anglia, UK), Verena Winiwarter (Klagenfurt University, IFF, Austria, and former President of the European Society for Environmental History), and Thomas Zeller (University of Maryland, USA). Thomas Lekan (University of South Carolina, USA) formulated the questions. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

The final season of The Good Fight is out and you should see it and I have committed an entire episode to the Paramount+ tour de force
Premise. A year after the series finale of The Good Wife, an enormous financial scam destroys the reputation of young lawyer Maia Rindell and wipes out the savings of her mentor, Diane Lockhart. The Good Fight is an American legal drama produced for CBS's streaming service CBS All Access. It is the platform's first original scripted series. The series, created by Robert King, Michelle King, and Phil Alden Robinson, is a spin-off and standalone sequel to The Good Wife, which was created by the Kings. On July 20, 2021, Paramount+ renewed the series for a sixth season. On May 27, 2022, it was announced that the sixth season will be the series' last; it premiered on September 8, 2022. As of September 15, 2022, 52 episodes of The Good Fight have been released. The Good Fight: Julianna Margulies Won't Return as Alicia Florrick. The Good Fight is set to return for its sixth season on Paramount+ sometime in the summer of 2022. You can see new photos of Braugher in the upcoming season of the popular series as well as read its official description down below. As it were, The Good Fight films in Brooklyn, in the borough's northernmost neighborhood of Greenpoint. Filming takes place at Broadway Stages, according to The Cinemaholic, which notes that giant posters of the Chicago skyline and other such props help The Good Fight pass off Greenpoint for Chicago. The Good Fight, a law series starring Christine Baranski, Audra McDonald, and Cush Jumbo is available to stream now. Watch it on Prime Video, Paramount Plus or The Roku Channel on your Roku device. The Good Fight season 6 will be the show's last. The series is a spinoff of The Good Wife, which was created by Robert and Michelle King for CBS in 2009 and proceeded to run for seven seasons through 2016. Fighting the good fight of faith involves running from sin and pursing things such as righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fighting the good fight of faith is about making a choice – a choice to pursue God's will and a life of faith on a daily basis. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message

If you're morbidly obese simply walking around for hours is more like farmer carrying a couple 24kg kettlebells than it is just going for a walk so walking is an amazing workout for all of us!
For people who have morbid obesity, walking may be difficult. But it's doable with assistance. Even walking slowly will burn additional calories when you're carrying extra weight, because you're exerting more energy to move your body. Is it good for obese people to walk? Yes walking is an excellent form of exercise for both obese and non-obese clients. Studies show that people who walk 10,000 or more steps a day are significantly healthier and have lower BMI's than people who walk less than 10,000 steps a day. Even light walking in speeds of 1 to 2 miles per hour shows significant health benefits. Over time, increasing amounts of light physical activity may improve aerobic capacity and ultimately reduce mortality. Obese clients seeking weight loss are encouraged to progressively strive to accumulate 10,000–13,000 steps per day, including at least 10 minutes of stepping at a moderate to vigorous intensity. Walking, water exercise and stationary biking are all low-impact cardio options that are easy on the joints, which is an important consideration if you have a lot of weight to lose. By starting with a few minutes, a few times a day, you can quickly build endurance to try longer workouts as you become more fit. The farmer's walk, also called the farmer's carry, is a strength and conditioning exercise in which you hold a heavy load in each hand while walking for a designated distance. This whole body exercise hits most of the major muscle groups while providing an excellent cardiovascular stimulus. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chrisabraham/message
