I gave you a funny rating for the last line of your post lol. What you call excuses are sometimes reasons. I have been on keto for a while now. On Friday I blew it bigtime and am still suffering from that. I was quite shocked that I had fallen off the wagon so badly and quickly as I thought I had learned all the triggers and have strategies to deal with them. I normally have a few seconds to stop and think. This time was different. I have worked out it was for me a natural reaction to events of the day which caused stress, and the whole incident has shown me that I need to do an adrenal reset diet again to stop the extreme adrenalin response to a small amount of stress. Sometimes binging on the wrong carbs is a symptom of something else. I am not making excuses. I will deal with it so I don't have the same problem again. I find that most people who willfully have carbs knowimg they are bad for them don't use the excuse that they are addicted to them. it's more the 'life's too short and I may get knocked over by a bus tomorrow so why should I stop eating the things I like?' type of reasonimg. The same reason I have heard from smokers. I think you and I will have to agree to differ on this one.
