    How do I strengthen my core doctor? What can I do so I can be strong and kind? Strong enough to do what’s right for my mind and body every day. Thank God for you Dr Cywes.

    Dr. Gabor Matė explains the influence of childhood trauma on addiction development very well. Fits very well here.

    You’re the “Brene Brown” of obesity/addiction. Listening and validating people’s stories and helping us sort it out.

    I had to watch this video several times and again I'm not able to figure out how your view of different personalities is related, specifically, to carb addiction or any other addiction for that matter.

    according to your theory, a person with carb addiction is subject to all other addictions as well, because of his mindset, which, we know, is not the case.

    if I'm addicted to carbs, for example, I don't have to be addicted to meth or alcohol at the same time, which should follow from your theory. sorry, doc, this video failed to take the first place of your previous videos.

    I’ve seen this in myself. As I have worked on my self esteem through self acceptance and esteemable acts and goals, my urges to binge eat or punish myself through food have changed dramatically.

    Hey, Doc – dig this vid, great perspective to different personalities.
    I wanted to also direct you back to a comment I left you on the "do athletes need sugar" video you did, as I didn't see that video right away, so you may not have gone back to that older video to look at the comments. In the comment I left a suggestion for a follow-up video to that particular video; which in a way, the reason for my request conceptually might be something to consider incorporating in some of your future vids. Which is some of your (really great) videos are on cracking the addiction, helping those struggling to meet their goals by providing a support structure to break bad habits (which I'd guess that person typically has a weight-loss focus). But some of us, don't necessarily have an "addiction", or aren't eating a Keto or Carnivore style because of weight loss – but rather I do it because I want my internal systems to be healthier. And there is a lot of confusion & trial/error going on for the non-weight-loss-focused low(no)-carb person. I've bought into the understanding that the standard american diet is truly S.A.D. & I feel overall better because of the change. I think your videos brilliantly cover the intended topic; albeit sometimes, some topics, could possibly have "more to the story" for those who didn't start out for weight loss, or who've lost the weight & their goals have shifted. (my request for the athletes one, still stands tho…very interested to hear you expand on those thoughts!) Thanks!

    I'm so grateful I found you on Youtube. You have a way of making things so simple to understand. I've only admitted to myself that I'm an addict ressently as what you spoke of on the Low Carb MD podcast woke me up. Thanks doc. 🤗

    I am a very strong core person until I get around others because my family have always seen me as less. At the base of who I am, I know I'm worthy. But my family, to this day do not support anything I do; they wait for my failures. I am best by myself and I enjoy doing things out of my authenticity.
    Thank you for this "best video ever" because it supports why I've left my family behind me . . . I had to. It's ultimately unhealthy to hang around people who see you as a failure; no matter what you do.

    When you mentioned that bit about The Wall I felt that. It was my favorite album, and favorite movie as a teenager, because it just resonated with me so much. I felt I had to protect my weak inner heart with a hard personality. Things in my life reaffirmed this position, especially trying to navigate the unforgiving world as a highly sensitive person. Im learning and growing now with the help of my daughter, she is my greatest teacher 🥰.

    Interesting perspective and a simple breakdown on such a complex topic! As an artist/educator I see a connection to your ideas in trying to help people access and to expand their creativity. Accessing the authentic self is always the goal. It can be challenging to move people past their defenses. Recently, in addition to learning on my keto/carnivore journey, I've been doing a deep dive into psychology too. Therapist Marissa Peer (on YT) talks alot about "I am good enough", which seems to be what people often grapple with in terms of mental health and is perhaps what Dr Cywes is referring to as it relates to self esteem. That, and the concept of having appropriate boundaries. Another therapist here on YT, Jerry Wise, has great content with a family systems approach to all of this. If you want to learn about narcissism, Dr. Ramani is great. Imho, psychology needs to be taught more rigorously in curriculums from middle school thru university. Parents would benefit(and so would society),from taking courses on child development. If you come from a dysfunctional family, which is many/most of us, where else do you learn about this? Individual therapy helps, but maybe a world of pain could be avoided with a more comprehensive approach. And, there would be less addiction and other problems.

    I"m sure some eat carbs for addictive reasons. But many of us ate carbs simply because we mistakenly thought that was healthy because that was what the government recommended – the USDA's low-fat, high-carb (high sugar) Food Pyramid….

    Brilliant. Connect. You cannot treat one separate thing, people are complex. Best practitioners at everything tend to become wholistic, as you get good at something and then you notice there is another layer there… And another… Congrats on the video👍👏

    Hearing a thoughtful person muse aloud for a while following years of introspection and owning up to their own weaknesses is pretty edifying. That was a good video, Doc.

    I have complex PTSD from childhood trauma. You are talking about exactly what pete walker talks about in his book; Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving: A Guide and Map for Recovering from Childhood Trauma
    He talks about the four "F" response types. Fight, flight, freeze, fawn. I 100% believe my obesity is related to my trauma. The link between addiction and trauma is extremely strong. I highly encourage you to read that book by Pete walker but also, "the body keeps the score" by Bassel Van der Kolk..
