Re: Raw Vegans?

When the pants start getting a bit tight on me, I find I can start giving a sh!t about what I eat and can drop about 10 pounds, at which point I plateau. I can then start either eating like a rabbit, or start moving more and can drop another 10. Beyond that 20 pounds I have to do a serious combination of diet and exercise to lose any more. It gets harder with each passing year.

Each and every person is different in their own way, I know fat guys that could run circles around me if it came to it, and skinny guys that get winded carrying a gallon of milk from the car to the house.

Each person more or less knows what they need to do to get themselves "healthy" if that's their goal. It's just that "It's time to give a f*ck" moment that eludes more of the population than not.

Re: Raw Vegans?

Since the nut jobs, fruit cakes and cave men have all come out here, I wonder what the OP as a special needs sailing wannabe has to offer the cruising yachtsman?

Any special skills you have that might ease the burden of catering to your needs? Any sailing experience? Line handling skills Mechanical aptitude? Can you read a compass? Follow a prescribed course? Operate a GPS? AIS? Radar?

How do you function under duress? Lack of sleep? Physical strain? Mental fatigue? How will you function away from a daily wifi/internet connection? Maybe no contact with your followers for weeks at a time if you cross any oceans?

Tell us what you have to offer?

Lol. Their location still says Flat Earth Plane. What more do you need to know about their nav skills?

It could be a joke, but I think we've chased them away with a vegan stick.

Re: Raw Vegans?

Speaking of SAILING, I get quite a bit of exercise just going out in my boat. If I haven't sailed for awhile, I'm sore after a day of sailing, especially my thighs. Perhaps it helps having a boat that wants to heel all the time, and where nothing runs back to the cockpit or is automated?

Ummm as I said: gym and weight loss are ... oh, just re-read it

The point about specialised equipment is to keep ones heart rate at a precise level for a set time: 150 beats per minute for 15 minutes. It's not easy so it's a technique and equipment.

But it's nothing to do with weight loss. Nothing. It's to do with general health ☺

Re: Raw Vegans?

Mark is on the right track. I also have been doing research and cutting carbs out. Insulin has some nasty side effects, such as making you store fat, but by changing your diet you can "train" your body to run on fat and protein. So it doesn't produce much insulin. I have lost almost 20 lbs in 2 months doing this without exercise but now that I am adjusted to low carb I'm starting to lift weights and hike. Check the science , also google "redddit keto" and you can pick up the science of it pretty quickly.

Re: Raw Vegans?

Janet has a nice stationary bike that has sensors for heart rate. Not getting enough exercise is entirely my responsibility. I would just have to mop the sweat off. *grin*

Re: Raw Vegans?

OK, so I Googled "flat earth plane" and wow did I end up wackocrazistan. It led me to a website called "The Bible and the Flat Earth Plane" which sells totally respectable and not at all looney tunes DVDs like:

The Tremendous Benefits of Being a State Citizen, and How to Become One

The Future of the Libertarian Movement

The Miracle of Oxygenation

A Complete Course in Sovereignty - 2 DVD Set

The Flat Earth Conspiracy

"Why can you see cities and skylines 40-60 miles away without curvature, when if the Earth were curved, they would be under the horizon and your line of sight? Why did renowned expeditioner Admiral Richard Byrd report there was a tropical land with vegetation beyond the South Pole? Why was Antarctica closed to almost everyone when Byrd said it contained an unexplored area bigger than the size of the US, full of natural resources such as coal, oil and uranium? Could it be that humanity has been deliberately lied to about the very structure and shape of our world? A very thought-provoking presentation. 109-min. DVD"

Was there anything there about celestial navigation? Are sextants instruments of the devil?

Using a sextant you can prove that the sun is 32 nm in diameter and about 3000 nm away.

Power of sun


I really need to stop googling this stuff. The stupid, it is melting my brain. But I guess why would we trust universities and textbooks and experts when there's BibleIsTrueCookieMonster32 on the internet to show us the light?
