We're a virus, that is each time one of us chooses to put our own life above the planets integrity.
Some things I thought of doing: being an assistant to someone disabled, working on an organic farm, working the front desk at a gym
You're absolutely right about that man, and I wanted to delve deeper into what you said. Not to sound overtly negative, but when you look at both earth and human beings from a critical perspective its sad how much we've polluted (or in your words trashed) them with our destructive nature. It seems to me, and this is just my opinion, that a lot of it comes down to a mixture of both a lack of compassion, and self responsibility. A lack of compassion from a planetary standpoint, and self responsibility with the personal side of things.
Soon as I can find a way to make some money, been unemployed for years and can't figure out what to do. Ideally something that benefits the species, but that no longer seems possible, were just trashing the place it looks to me.
Since my initial switch I've maintained a pretty scrict exercise regimen: 45 mins of cardio, 30 mins of weight training 3-4 days per week, and the occasional 4-6 mile hike with friends on the weekend. Not to mention I work a somewhat physical demanding job where I'm on my feet walking and lifting heavy objects for a good portion of my 8 to 10 hour work day. Comparatively speaking, I havent noticed any difference with my energy output whether eating 1400 calories and exercising, versus 2000 calories and exercising, my energy levels are about the same; consistently very high. That's awesome, when are you moving to Hawaii?
Do you do any exercise? Did you feel you had any energy to say run or bike or swim on 1400? What about now on 2000-2200, more energy?
I've been eating less calories lately, around 4000-5000, getting bored cycling around the same areas, water is getting cold for swimming now. Can't wait till I can move to Hawaii, then I will be able to get the energy out more, I want to do some triathlons.
So over the last three weeks I've upped my calorie intake to about 2000-2200 a day which is a significant jump from where I was at (1400). In doing so I've continued to lose weight (18 more lbs.) at the same pace that I was before I upped my calories.
Just eat as much low fat food as you want, raw vegan of course
I have been averaging 6400 calories this week per day and I'm only 5'8" around 160
yesterday I had 80 bananas and some veggies, 8900 calories total, I'm losing weight
Thank David. The weight loss itself has been fairly consistent ever since I started; around 40 lbs per month. I started at 455 and I'm now down to 298, so I definitely had a lot to lose from the very get go. Plus I only consume around 1400 calories per day. But yeah, the larger you are the more calories are needed to maintain a person's current weight, so my caloric needs at 455 and 298 are completely different. I'm sure once I drop another 30 or 40 lbs, I'll eventually plateau as they say, and getting those last however many pounds will take a lot longer.
That is incredible, it seems like the pounds come off people fast when they are really big, then it tapers off and the last few are slowly coming off, right? Been curious how that works.
