In Response To: What does "compliance" to the diet mean? (sean)
Maybe we want it to mean different things.
I thought the compliance definition from P D'A referred only to people who are diligently avoiding ALL the Avoids to begin with. After THAT is taken care of, percent compliance is the % of the diet choices which are the Highly Beneficials.
The definition did not deal with portion size directly, but indirectly through % of choices.
And, it did not apparently have a 'cheat' option for calculating how many avoids could be snuck in.
Personally, I think of avoids as being like the fat story. You know, a cheese that is 32% fat by weight is 72% fat in calories.
Somewhere P D'A pointed out that the Avoids can have effects that are way larger than just the volume they occupy in diet ( a little bit of wheat, a little bit of tomato...you know how it goes.)
What of course makes us restless is that we'd like to know "how bad" that cup of coffee, or black olive pizza slice, or potato is, so we can cut some kind of 'deal' with our body. I'm reminded of an Onondaga chief who said, in effect, The laws of nature cannot be broken. You try and they will break you.
I didn't realy understand what he meant until I had huge reactions to a 'sliver' of cheesecake or a 'dab' of tomato sauce. Our bodies tell us the truth, always.
Now I'll get down of the soapbox and go hide among the forest of interleukin references.
