Great to hear from you! You and Olivia are making my day!
I would have to say most Americans are "obsessed" with self abuse! They really do not want to know the truth about what they are doing to themselves. You are an exception, a truth seeker. We have been brainwashed all out lives about food, through no fault of our forbears who were led down the same paths themselves.
You get off the beaten path, to which fasting definitely provides an off ramp, the truth can be pretty brutal! I had NO CLUE my intestines were almost totally impacted with ancient putrid filth cemented to the walls! I went every day! I thought I was fine!!
Over two years later, I am dedicated. Obsessed? Whatevah...
