Starting a Yoga course and need help planning meals!

Hello fruity-Yogi friends!I am currently in San Marcos la Laguna, Guatemala and am about to start a one month intensive Yoga course. I need your advice in constructing a daily menu for myself that will work for me, while I live here for the next month or two. It seems like cooked carb proteins with a medium amount of carbs are much easier to get ahold of than are plentiful carbs.   I'm in need of coming up with a menu as close to  80-10-10 as possible that will work for me.  I would love to get…See More

Getting quality sleep while traveling...

       I'm used to sleeping on the ground, with maybe a blanket or two underneath, and sometimes just on the carpet. I will be traveling through Guatemala, Nicaragua and the Yucatan. When I arrive at a location, I will most likely be staying in a dorm hostel for the first night or two. I plan on finding better accommodation by asking around town, hopefully finding weekly or monthly discounts on private rooms.       In the dorms, I can wear earplugs and a face mask so I can get to bed early,…See More

Hello Everybody, - I have listened to fair bit of peoples input and it looks like our needs are going to be best met by renting a modern/nice and large house of at least 3 bedrooms and lots of outdoor living space like a large patio, large balcony, a palapa / rancho where we can have 1 or 2  people stay in tents and hammock and share the common indoor areas.  This type of house will run us $500 to $1000 a month ( only $5 to $15 per day if we get a hand full of people)  We will have internet as this was a need for few at very least there will be a high speed internet store in a near by town.  Cell phones are easily available in Mexico so no issue here.  Southern Mexico has a nice lush tropical climate and the best thing is that the people are so kind, and open hearted people you will love it being there.  The plan is to have a pickup truck, bicycles, ocean close by and in a safe and hot climate with abundance of fruits and coconuts.  Open to all 100% Vegans, High Raw, High Carb, High kind loving and respectful people.  Natural Hygiene way of life & nutrition is going to be the theme of this micro community.  We will share a large house, our wisdom, our support, our food, and all our strengths and weaknesses.  The idea is to have a healthy, good, and educational time during the winter and coming years.  There is not much support out there which is affordable and realistic for the natural hygiene so this community will be like a natural hygiene college and you choose how long you want to vacation with us. (Total cost of $25a day for foods, accommodation & some transportation)   It is time for more support for those who are newer to this way of life, but even good for those who are seasoned raw vegans.  In numbers we have strength and better time.  It is time we helped each other out in what ever way we can and therefore strengthen the 811 raw vegan community.  To help us plan things out right please book with us at least 6 weeks in advance, starting for Nov. 2013.  Also check out the photos section of mine over the coming days I will be putting out pictures of southern Mexico semi paradise Tropics.  I will do my best to get to southern Mexico early so I can find a nice house for us, I will also try to look for one via internet since I have recent travel experience in this region and know what the macro regions are like.  Trust me I will be trying to get a bargain price, and a nice location which is not too far from the beach yet far enough so we are not in the salty air zone, a nice quiet neighborhood, far enough from a major town so we have peace and fresh air but close enough so we can drive, bike, or bus to it to get entertainment, services, and goods.  A few hundred meters elevation would be nice so we have a touch or pinch of break from the hot heat of the sea level.  I will try to make connections with fruit and veggie trucks so that they stop by our house daily resupplying us with fresh fruit daily or every few days.  If this sounds like a good plan to you then your support would be much appreciated.  We need people to be serious and save up for a flight ticket to Puerto Vallarta plus a extra $1000 - $3000 depending how long you want to vacation with us.  The cost is now projected / estimated to be $25/day includes room and board and short trip transportation costs.  It would be nice to have some extra spending money too, you don't need much but is always nice to have for longer trips or things to buy.  Also please spread the word so more people hear about this natural hygiene college / community, trust me I have no issues with renting even 2 houses and negotiating in Spanish to get a good deal.  Also we need early commitment so I know how many people are coming.

Ryan, thanks for the hot tip on the papaya bro!  Katy and I just cleaned out Fiesta on em.  Also found some watermelons that sounded really good too.  A bunch of us will be Eeyore's Birthday at Pease park tomorrow, which is always a great time.

Sorry dude, I think you even told me that earlier and I forgot.  I'll schedule it for Sunday next time definitely, probably some time in June.

More Exercise = More Weight Loss?

For 5 weeks I dramatically increased the number of miles I ran, while maintaining the same diet, to see how that would effect weight loss. The common view is that it's battle of calories in vs. calories burnt. is it?
