grocery store receipts should have calorie counts on them. everything's computerized now to do automated inventory, add nutrition facts to the database.

also the calorie is a ridiculous unit, and for food should be replaced with the 'hum', equal to 100watts, which is around 2066 food calories/day. approx wattage of the adult human body. so the receipt says you have 4 hum-weeks of calories: that's food for 4 people for a week.

also all the food should be free

youre supposed to get a stolen bicycle and use that for cardio. ppl who recommend running, particularly as a weightloss method, are saboteurs who WANT you to fuck up your knees because someone w a fucked up knee or hip is pretty much done with any type of athletic activity. performance based activities like sport, particularly more competitive ones, have a lot people in it who willingly spread lies and disinfo to get as many people out of the race

#567
I fucked up my knees last time I tried to start running again... so I'm tempted to believe what you say about these saboteurs. Otherwise it sounds rather paranoid, though.

Now I'm a psycho for swimming, though.
#568
anyone who recommend running, ask them wjat sport they did in high school. if it's not track or cross country they're trying to sabotage you, if it's track or cross country you know right away not to trust anything they say

i, ran the 400m four times every meet

Why would making the unit people see on the box equal to a full day of eating be better? I think it'd be more confusing for most because then every individual meal is a fraction, and every ingredient is a fraction of a fraction. Way less intuitive than just adding. And why privilege moderately active adult men who actually need 2000 kcals for maintenance? The average woman needs 1800 kcals so a full day of eating for them is 0.9 hums, and it's more math for them to do in their head at the grocery store. Plus I think it just makes more sense to use a unit of energy than a unit of power in this case cause we're trying to describe the energy content of some amount of a substance.
the calorie is a great unit!

#570
yeah, i think the unit being for food has a logic to it, we need to burn calories to stay warm, and heat up our water, which we are mostly, and it's equal to one degree celsius per kilogram of water, this lone metric unit trying to internationalize the imperial system. but food is the major science that measures energy by the 1 kilocalorie. so the kilocalorie is a water based unit, and has the life-linked natural basis, but couldn't you say the same for the hum-day, a solar based unit, or the hum-second, which is about the energy required to sustain the body thru one human heartbeat? the hum-decade is a unit equal to the approximate amount of food needed to keep a person alive for a decade, and megahumdecade a city of 1 million for 1 decade. 1 megahum is the human power of a city of 1 million. power times time is energy, and our units of time are already familiar and scaled to human life's proportions and to astronomy. mainly i can't wait for the day when i don't have to do 3-digit serving size multiplication or division, 3 or 4 times a day, like okay there are 280 calories per serving, and 3.5 servings per container, and i estimate i ate half the container, that's 280 * 3.5/2... to know factually how much i am eating so if this not this then something.

i purchased ingredients at the store for cooking purposes today. the first thing i bought stuff for i've made before. it takes like 15min max if you make it really shittily as i do (it still taste good though), but i got stuff for thai peanut noodles. then i got ingredients for this other thing i made up once where i cook mushrooms in butter and then put hummus on a tortilla, and then the butter mushrooms go inside as i'm sure one would expect. last i got more english muffins and some pinto beans and cheese and i can make burritos and stuff witht hat. i am trying to cook food more. i hope to get a rice cooker soon because while i like rice, cooking rice in a pot is an awful experience so i avoid it usually.

Yeah, rice cookers are so much more consistent.

If you are gonna' run you should also do a lot of squats. The reason a lot of people mess up their joints I think is because their knee muscles aren't strong enough to withstand the shock of running. However if you build up your knee muscles you can avoid that, maybe. Anyway I haven't exercised with any regularity in months...maybe for the New Year or something. I live like right around the corner from a pool but it's been closed for so long it sucks.

Been doing goblet squats since I don’t have access to a barbell atm. It’s very satisfying post-workout. The problem with me isn’t my knees but my shins which get splints after so many miles/week. I need to just go to a foot doctor because my feet are ridiculously flat

#586
for the shin splints: the likely culprit is actually the shin muscles. the shins experience pain because the muscles aren't strong enough to support the movement of the foot upward.

an exercise you can do is stand flatback against a wall, and just keep your heels on the ground and raise your toes/feet off the ground as high as you can go, and hold for 5 seconds. do that 8 times for 3 sets. if you find it too much, try 4 or even 3 seconds. do this every other day, you may even find you can do it every day, those muscles heal faster than others.

in addition to a revised isometric routine, a formal kettlebell routine and the occasional bike ride ive been using a hand grip for the past few days. 500 reps a day per hand, 35kg pressure. 10 sets of 50 per hand. sometimes go up to 700, 800 on days where im bored
im just telling you ... but the cohort of foes i have in my life are NOT expecting this... they let themselves go during this period of so called fetivities ... im going to run up on them while they got their belts unbuckled because of all the foie gras and champagne theyve been gorging themselves with and im going to show them what total annihiliation is about... true force

What drove you to try it out and what do you think it'll look like for you?

I ask because many would say I have "fucked" sleep because I sometimes nap around 6-8pm for around an hour, usually preventing me from falling asleep until 3-5am. But this usually doesn't interfere with what I have to do in a given day. On the other hand I do feel a bit guilty about lack of productivity that arises from that and sometimes do just use sleep as a way to avoid things I need to do. But if I can get around those problems, I don't see why instituting it normally wouldn't be beneficial especially if I end up working, for example, a job with odd hours but still want to be awake at the times its convenient to meet with other people.

wife read about it somewhere and it sounds nice. i am going to try it so that i can write in between the phases (e.g. i'll probably do 23-2, 4-8). i have difficulty writing in the daytime but also get tired if i don't drink alcohol, so it sounds appealing. it's also appealing because my family is in a different time zone so it'll be more reasonable to talk to them after the work finishes.

apparently it was very common to have such a sleep pattern until gas then electric lighting. it wasn't so uncommon for people to even meet their neighbors between phases.

my thoughts, too. trying to get a job now and basically all of my options are home-office with fully autonomous work requirements, so in theory i could do it at any time of the day.

going to try it for a month or so starting on the 4th... i'll link my erowid trip report at the end of the trial

drinking lots of green tea. been having little kidney pain spikes here and there which i am curing with the green tea. i have been eating bone broth using roasted chicken because broth is one of the most nutritive food there is. and bones give big collagen, big nutrition. with whatever vegetables i can find, spices, garlic. other than this transgression i still dont eat land animals. its poison... animals living in mass production internment camps cant possibly have a healthy outcome on consumption... this is why carnifascists are all retarded, ugly and mean... meat production has bad energies... on the other hand i eat fish with the guts now. i dont cut them out, nor the heads. its logical really, eating the brains, eyes and organs of fishes makes my own brain, eyes and organs stronger... i feel bad for chomping the heads of sardines down but its them or me really

I’m doing a sort of couch to 1 mile program for swimming

http://ruthkazez.com/swimming/ZeroTo1mile.html

It only takes six weeks, and so far it seems to be working as today I did 400 yards (week 3) when on the first week I was sputtering and not finishing 50 yards. It’s very interesting how quickly the body adapts to it, and a mile of swimming is already almost 1/2 of the Ironman distance (2.4). Probably the hardest part is figuring out timing of strokes and getting enough oxygen.
