Consolidating everything I know on healthy eating resulted in an extremely simple system–one that anyone could think up if they had a basic understanding of humans and never listened to any food marketing.
As a heuristic, we can assume that any form of marketing or volunteered data is going to be at least somewhat true but misleading. Anything on packaging should be suspect, as should anything on someone’s LinkedIn, resume, business card, Tinder profile, or whatever someone seems eager to share with strangers, especially in large groups.
It’s like visiting a classy restaurant where your foodie friend force feeds you caviar, and then deciding that you don’t like fine dining as you gag up fish eggs in the bathroom.
People at the bottom of the pyramid don’t remember what the top was like, and people at the top can’t comprehend the fascinations of people at the bottom.
“There’s absolutely no use to keeping yourself in an emotional frenzy, especially one you’ve been pulled into by media and other people’s inability to control their feelings.
If you believe there’s some huge injustice being done, then go do something about it. Don’t trick yourself into thinking that slacktivism via Facebook posts and Internet fights is going to change the world.”
Simply put, microdosing is a way to nudge your mind into a flow state without the nasty side effects of coffee or other stimulants.
This is the main reason I (and many others) have found it much more effective and sustainable than caffeine, Adderall, modafinil, or other common work-performance-enhancing drugs.
