How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
Control what is eaten and what people drink in order to subvert and weaken their minds and bodies, reducing their ability to make good decisions.
Make food and drink a reward. Link breaks to agreements. Hold off until you have got what you want. A related reversal is to request or demand food breaks for yourself in order to disrupt their tactics.
Other variants include:
For yourself, consume less, choosing lighter food and less stimulating drinks, but do occasionally have something sweet in order to keep you energized and focused.
In general, always consider the effect of different food and drink on the body and brain, using these to your advantage.
Would you like some more coffee? Or perhaps a Coke then?
Sorry it's getting late. Let's just agree this then go eat.
Would you like some water? Sorry we have no snacks.
The brain is a delicate system that is driven by the chemicals in the blood. Any change in blood chemistry hence can upset the working of the brain and mind, including reducing our ability to make sound decisions. As we think with the brain, we may well not notice this change, which stops us holding back when decision-making ability is impaired.
Food and drink can speed us up with stimulants such as coffee, stopping us pausing to reflect. Food also slows us down as blood is diverted to the digestive system. Without the right balance of chemicals, we also lose ability and slow down to conserve energy (hence that post-meal doziness).
The effects of caffeine and alcohol are well-known, yet many will still indulge, as much out of politeness to an offer of food as natural craving. There are also many lesser-known effects, such as the way lowered glucose in blood reduces will-power and decision sense.
Water can be the safest drink but, with the lack of nutrients, it is insufficient if there is no other sustenance for a long time.
