What is the paleo diet for obesity and depression?
This is the story of Hashi Mashi, a paleo diet and exercise plan to treat both obesity and depression.
The Hashi Mashi story began on Thursday, June 21, 2012.
For me, the Hashi Mashi story was nothing short of miraculous.
This is how it started around midnight in the am.
After a major binge and feeling incredibly depressed, I wrote the following the next day:
Yesterday, I binged again.
The typical binge, first some bread in the morning, and before you know it, I was craving a blueberry muffin, and then pizza, and then bagel.
And then, I try to hold up and stop myself, but later in the evening I start thinking of the cookies, chocolate chip, pepperidge farm, peanut butter cups, snickers, anything, give me that sugar!
And then finally, I feel like I can breathe.
And it was a very bad binge, by midnight, I could barely move…my belly was so distended, so uncomfortable, over 250 pounds on the scale, close to 30% body fat, 52% water and a BMI of 30 which makes me today, officially obese.
I don’t know how many diets I have tried, maybe 100.
So, I am really going to try hard today to start on a new path.
I call this path, another try because I do not want to give up, I am calling this diet plan Hashi Mashi because I made up the name Hashi Mashi to describe the omelette that I asked for this morning, Thursday, June 21, 2012, a vegetable omelette, humus and avocado.
Basically , I cut out the bread, and pasta, rice, white potatoes, that is essentially the Hashi Mashi diet plan.
That is no small thing for me, to cut out bread.
Cutting out bread is like cutting out oxygen.
How can a person live without bread, how could I?
I have become aware that there are similar diet plans around the web and they refer to the idea of eliminating bread, pasta, rice and white potatoes as the paleo diet.
I have to read more about the paleo diet plan and if that is an appropriate framework for Hashi Mashi.
I need to deal with obesity, standing on the edge of diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and depression.
Lets see how this works this time.
This is only the millionth diet I have ever tried.
The purpose of this site is to track my progress, and if it appears to be successful, to then share it with other people who struggle with obesity and depression.
The reason I add depression here, is because I have noticed, that whenever I have a binge, and feel even more obese, that I feel more depressed.
I think there is a link between obesity and depression and/or perhaps between grains and depression, but I cannot really say till I learn more about the paleo diet and follow it long enough to have some results.
I have some additional reasons for feeling depressed, but probably, I would find a reason no matter what.
I think my general brain chemistry feels down, and then I can create a reason why.
I do have legitimate things to be sad about, but I think I am more affected than the average person.
So, I am hoping that trying to stick to real food only, as much as possible, will have some positive results.
If not, at least I tried.
Eat real food.
Start to lift weights, even if that is only my body weight doing pushups or pullups, even better if I can do heavier weight lifting like squats and deadlifts.
Get out and walk.
Stay away from all processed foods and negative thoughts.
Work on my field to rebuild my vineyard.
