Old But Relatively Balanced Article on Practicing CR

Dean Pomerleau

Recommended Posts

Here is an old (circa 2001), but IMO relatively fair characterization of some of the benefits and pitfalls (particularly psychologically) of long-term CR. We do tend to be a bit of an obsessive bunch.  :)


The author's brief practice of CR was clearly much too short and extreme to be healthy (or representative), but overall she does a pretty good (and entertaining) job of describing what it can be like for some people:




P.S. I wonder how Sherm and Warren are doing? Anyone know? I miss them!

Hi Dean!


Thanks for your prolific posting!


I was in touch with Warren in late August -- he seemed all right; but I guess that he hasn't adjusted to the switch from the List to the Forums.


I had an email from Mike Sherman several years ago -- he had managed to purchase a large amount of sucralose, and offered to share some of it.  I thanked him, but emailed back that I had more than enough sucralose and neotame,  (Actually, that's another story -- I've stopped using any sweeteners in my Chinese white tea which I brew every morning -- I find the tea tastes best with no sweetening; and similarly for the small amount of coffee that I drink when at work (in the Math Dept of the Univ of Rochester).  The only thing that I sweeten now is the rare cup of cocoa that I drink -- with a small amount of Neotame.  The only naturally sweet thing that I add is the new all-natural Walden Farms salad dressings -- they're now sweetened with monk fruit juice, which I find tasty.  Also, I rarely eat a fresh fig or apricot; or a few berries).


Warren and Khurram share an appartment -- we sometimes get posts from Khurram; if he reads this, he mioght tell us some more about Warren.
