  1. How do you feel at the end of the day?

    February 20, 2013 by betaman

    When it comes to your health, and all is said and done, what matters most is how you feel at the end of the day. Not just physically, however, I mean feelings. Are you satisfied with your physical state of being, and the personal choices you made to get there?

    Lately I’ve been feeling pretty good. I can’t quite say yet if this is due to the lack of meat products in my diet, the fact that I’ve been running further and more regularly, or that I am paying more attention to portion control. Or just maybe, it is an overall sense of satisfaction that I am keeping a promise to myself. Most likely, this new found sense of fulfillment is due to all of the above.


  2. Weighing In on the Vegetarian Diet

    For the record, I am not doing this for dietary purposes. Though I do understand the great benefits of consuming less animal based protein and fat. There is a difference between nutrition and diet. And I am more concerned about healthy nutrition than what I allow in my diet.

    For the record, I am not nor have I ever been considered obese. But I have definitely never considered myself slim either. I have, however, always had a gut which I hope to reduce in size as a result the change in my dietary changes over the next few months.

    For the record, today I officially weigh 200 lbs, a number I have hovered just below for the past few years. They say muscle weighs more than fat, but I’m not fooling myself. The pants have definitely felt tighter for quite a while now. That’s about to change.
