Dopamine Resistance

Dopamine Resistance — an interesting theory about addiction and cravings. Not just food, but smartphone/internet addiction, video game addiction, porn addiction, drug addiction, coffee addiction, news addiction, etc.

Strategies:

  1. Intermittent fasting
  2. Avoid environmental cues which ‘trigger’ the undesired addictive behavior.
  3. Stop consuming sugar (natural or fake), snacks, desserts, etc.
  4. To extend fasting period in the day, do strenuous exercise or have a strong cup of black coffee.

‘Addiction’ isn’t inherently bad or evil.

I’m addicted to having fun, creating, walking, lifting weights, coffee, etc. To me, the notion of ‘addiction’ shouldn’t be a moralized one. Rather, it is all about YOUR personal life goals.

Think about your desired outcome, then work backwards.
