It's not difficult to get healthy. Don't drink soda, cut your sugar in half and eat more natural foods.
I only eat meat 5 days of the week and the meat I eat is chicken, salmon or turkey. Vegetarians live longer than meat eaters so I decided to only give up a couple of days a week without meat.

Being a vegetarian is really hard but man it will really make you feel good and give you energy if you do it for a month or longer.
May I add eating at least 51% of your vegetables & fruit intake in the raw natural form.

Yet another generic and grossly simplified opinion.

Everyone's physiology and nutritional needs are different depending on gender, age, health status, physical activity and about a dozen different things, but don't let that stop you from over simplifying.

I just haven't submitted it because now that I've been working at it, I'm going to crush it.

Right now I can do 30 consecutively without resting my arms in between. Things I'm still fine tuning:

- I'm still lowering myself too much instead of just dropping and losing a lot of strength/energy in the negatives.

- When I let myself just drop, I start swinging on the bar, then I lose a lot of energy restabilizing myself.

- The video is 40 lbs belted on with chains. The chains weigh about 5 lbs, and I'm carrying extra bodyfat then. Should feel about 10lbs lighter now, and I'm a bunch stronger in the muscles that motion recruits since I've been working at it for 3 months now.

Either way, I'm starting to really dread my pull days, so I'll probably do it within April no matter what because I'm just sick of working on it.
Wait am I Reading your PM's?

With rare exception, I don't eat carbs outside of fruits or vegetables. I eat all the meat / veggies / fruits / nuts / cheese I want. I emphasize the avoidance of hunger on said dietary lifestyle. I guess you could call it a paleo-esque diet. Been doing this for about 9 months. Never felt better. I was having all kinds of problems with a hip and ankle arthritis that was hindering my bicycle routine (15-20 miles per day). There is truly something to the inflammatory nature of dense acellular carbohydrates. I feel like I did when I was 20.

I do not disagree, there are many people can not switch to raw food instantly. I do not advocate radical diet changes. Baby steps with a goal to consume more of you veggies and fruit in the state nature provided it.

No, no, no, no. I appreciate your commitment to your lifestyle. That's great you are able to work it in and I'm even pretty jealous.

But there are plenty of reasons of why people can't eat healthy every day. I boil it down to this, my office doesn't have a fridge and since it is a state building, they won't allow mini-fridges either, so I will choose fast food or something totally processed or full of carbs, something that won't spoil being left out in a cooler bag, rather than try and speak to an elected official while I have an empty stomach.

These are not excuses. This is life. And I'm certain my sob story applies to many other people in many different ways.

I'm well aware of that and when I do get fast food I often do get those options. Also, you will notice in my post I do use a cooler bag but since I rarely get to sit down and eat before 2 or 3 it isn't an option for me unless it is something that doesn't necessarily need to be chilled. Besides, road warriors like myself rarely get the option of what to eat, we eat when we get time and it often is the closest thing available when we get 15 minutes.

I'm not making an excuse because I don't feel bad at all about my eating habits. I only wish I could get to the gym more because I enjoy it and I couldn't care less about health benefits.

Lots of excuses in this thread. People always say I have to eat fast food. Well most fast food joints, as some have mentioned, have healthy options. They have them for several years now. There is plenty of time to make food too.

How i lost weight & kept it off:

Upfront cost vs. Back end costs (Sometimes fresh healthy foods do cost more TODAY. Healthcare costs will cost more tomorrow). Eating healthier, hiking, & growing 25-30% of my food really helped. Also, minus some things - i eat a lot of seasonal foods.

I cut out a lot of things right up front:

Beer, refined sugars (I personally don't count fruits & veggies), breads, knocked back dairy also.

Ate way more stirfry & salads. (which also was way more poultry, fishes, creatures of the sea - with my red meats being organic/free range).

Carbs are of course a big part of the story, but it's not all about carbs. If it was, the Japanese, Chinese, Indians, etc. would all be fat! For a good answer to the question below follow the link.

How does the average person living in, say, Japan stay leaner and healthier than the average American while still consuming >70% of their caloric intake in the form of carbohydrates?

Obesity and "being healthy" are not mutually exclusive.

Obesity can be caused by damn near everything posted in this thread. I can be underweight or overweight on a low nutrition diet. Can I really be considered "healthy" on a low nutrition diet?

In the time it takes a person to get in their car, go to a fast food place, wait in the drive-thru and go back and eat it -- you could have prepared a fresh meal to take to work in a lunch box. Saying you "don't have time" is an excuse and a pretty ****ty one.

Not usually the way it works. I prep a lot of meals. Probably do fast food 3-4 times a month.

When I do, it's usually, "Well I could make this, but I'd have to go to the store, and Chuckie's got piano in an hour. Janie's done with gymnastics in 30 minutes, and I have to go get the Beav at soccer practice right now."

Having 5 different household schedules makes full-on dinner preparation damn near impossible sometimes.

There is nothing paleo about that diet. Grains, seafood and meats were the stables of a stone age diet. Fruits and vegetables were extremely seasonal and not a significant foodsource, cheese wasnt known at all.

Well, I know for a fact Britons from the area certainly did. There weren't many, but they did and had it imported before they ever started farming it well over ten thousand years ago.

There was a 50+ year old women with cankles and ugly painted toe nails who had to be pushing 260 pounds at 5'6 in line in front of me the other day. I had 3 lemons, 3 peppers (red, orange, green), some onions, cabbage and got some fresh cod as well cause I like fish!

The lady turned and looked at me and said, "Poor thing, must be hard times for you with that little groceries. You need more than that!"

I just looked at her and said, "No, this is all healthy good food, what you are eating is **** and you wonder why you look the way you do."

Made her feel real bad.
I bet you're fun at parties.

They ate whatever they could gather or hunt. Sometimes that was fresh fruit, fish, nuts and deer. A lot of times it was insects, invertebrates (e.g. worms), rodents, small lizards, edible grasses (including some grains -- grains are just as naturally occurring as fish), and anything else they could find. Just like today, the actual diet of a paleolithic human varied by climate/locale.

The paleo diet is kind of a big silly naturalistic fallacy mixed with wishful thinking and a big dose of selective thinking (i.e. not many paleo diet folks put conviction into it by eating lots of rodent and insect meat).

Though has one good point: avoid processed foods.
