I've noticed that in the Diary thread as well, and I've been offered an explanation as to why, but that particular explanation is not applicable to this thread.

Sporadic lack of interest, or sporadic interest........

I just found out I'm a hair's length away from diabetes today. I gotta do a complete dietary overhaul,...

Not yet. I'm instructed to modify my diet, and see how it goes. I'd been eating too many processed starchy foods for too long. This is making me rethink my diet, and I'm omitting all the bread, pasta, and junk foods. In the long run I'll lose weight & get in better shape. I'd been working out and I've lost about 13lbs already. I'm starting to finally see my abs again (I actually used to have a 6 pack stomach).

I'll give it a little bit of time & see how it goes. I'm not young, but I'm better off than most guys I know who are my age. I do sets of pull-ups, push-ups, and crunches in a decent amount. My reps are 20, 40, and 50 in the order of the exercises I listed. I also do bodyweight squats in sets of 20-25 reps.

The conclusion is I need to change my overall lifestyle eating habits. It (hopefully) should be enough for me,...if I'm lucky.

^ ^ ^ One step you could take that could take you far is quality sleep. Quantity can be misleading - if one isn't hitting the bottom final stages of sleep, restoration will be compromised. And can lead to illness such as...

 

Wishing you the best!

Tonight's company dinner, there was meat. We saw it, and it was good. Choose your weapon.

I think your posts are making me want to change my diet for the better.

Please do,...it's a PITA to change now - especially after having cancer a few years ago as well.

 

Today I'm using my weight vest loaded with 40lbs, and I'm currently doing a circuit of pull-ups, push-ups, and squats with it on. Afterwards it'll be pike push-up & crunch combo.All good!!! :D

 

 

PS: This isn't a picture of me,...this is just to show what a "Pike Push-Up" is,... :tongue_smile:

I think we did something similar in the army at one point, LOL

 

Yeah, we've been talking about eating healthier at home for a while now. Actually, we already eat pretty healthy thanks to my wife getting her way for most of the time. She's a vegetarian and it's easier for me to just add meat to her vegetarian creations, or you know, just eat vegetarian that day as well, than doing two different meals. So, I don't know why but it seems to me that most vegetarian meals are a bit healthier to begin with as in less crap and more... vegetables and stuff, I guess. Lots of lenses, beans, and stuff. I thought vegetarians ate flowers.

 

Anyway, I still eat junk and bread every now and then.

 

Also, just in general, it almost seems to me that it's usually the healthy people that gets the physically demanding diseases. As if unhealthy people are training their bodies to withstand junk and poison (alcohol, nicotine, etc.) better. My friend's father: never smoked a cig once in his life. He wents biking and skiing every day, and even competed in those sports. He and his buddies used to do biking trips all over the world, Iceland, Israel, and so on, just to ... bike with their MTB's. His condition was probably 10x the condition of ours. He only ate organic food and was one of the generally nicest and healthiest guys on earth. Then one day, he went and caught lung cancer and died.

 

Life's ironic.

I think I would get dizzy doing those. I seem to be pretty sensitive to the "head rush" effect. :/

Vegetarian diet is excellent. And adding meat occasionally isn't the problem. It's all the soda, breads, pastries, pasta, cake, candy, processed foods that do it.

And as far as the unhealthy living longer - not so. I was a heavy smoker when I got cancer. I quit smoking and I'm now cancer free for 5+ years. I was also a majorly heavy drinker. Having a drink or 2 a day is good for you. I was in the "unhealthy" range. I could drink a liter of vodka and I wasn't drunk.

People often get cancer due to genetics, or exposure to carcinogenic chemicals. It's better to enjoy life by trying to be healthy, than to just go with the flow and do as you please - suffering a painful death. No way am I going down without a fight. Having cancer made me think this way.
