interminnent fasting and selecting for the delicious

Interminnet fasting is supposed to be healthy.

A good trick to use it is by fasting according to food quality. If you fast when there is low wuality food, you got two rewards at once. You enjoy health benefits of fasting, and you also eat overall better food.

PS. research shows that for 48 hours eating vs. not eating has not discrenible effect on mood and cognitive performance.

discomfort, pain and risk of pain

Pain is a signal that something is bad. Discomfort, however, is many times not enough of a reason to change our priorities.

It is the confusion between pain - negative, natual alarm - and discomfort that can bring life and activities to a halt.

Risk of pain is another story. Pain is usually not a death sentence. So non fatal pain is acceptable, but not good. Yet, taking a small risk to come to pain, is perfectly reasonable. Again, it is the confusion between pain and possible pain that can bring life to a halt.
