Response from a friend (1/2):
Yeah, I have a really hard time tricking my brain into all-or-nothing.
Brain: Why are we eating like this?! This sucks, and there are so many other better things to eat!
Me: Because we have a goal, Brain, and this is how we're doing it.
Brain: That's dumb.
Me: I know, but this is how we're doing it, and it should work if we stick to it.
Brain: ... But there are so many easier ways to go about it, why this way?
