Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

In my office we have height-adjustable desks, so that one can choose and vary between sitting and standing.
Although I'm only in my early twenties - man, I tell you these things do miracles to backpaon, concentration and feeling 'stiff' after a couple of hours.

I usually end up standing most of the day, like maybe 6 of 9 hours or so.

And it's proven that standing a few more hours a day has a great eneficial impact on long term health as well (need to search that study later, exam in 3 hours :/ )

Maybe something to consider for you

I used to spend my 8+ hours in front of the computer sitting in a comfy office chair but I found that my stomach muscles where getting very weak.

It was suggested I use a giant exercise ball as a chair. Which I have done for more than a year now to great effect.

You can sort of bounce/move side to side as you are perched on its top and thereby exercise all your core muscles.

Made a huge difference to my posture and over all health.

I started making these gigantic salads with

field greens, baby spinach, cucumber, walnuts, almonds, cherries, Anaheim Chiles, tomato, basil, gorgonzola cheese, cilantro, pepper, and just a small amount of dressing. Sometimes I add different things or subtract some.

The vegetable portion probably fills 2.5 to 3 normal bowls in one ridiculous mixing bowl I eat out of but I still feel hungry afterwards. I tried adding some meat with beans but I still have the same problem. Sometimes I feel like I'm eating ridiculous size portions. Seems to be not until I have carbs and/or some form of fat do I feel full / satisfied. I've heard some good carbs to add are sweet potato, oat meal, or wheat/pumpernickel bread to the vegetables.

I was wondering if that's normal to remain hungry or If I should add carbs to my salad. I'm curious what other people do when they start to add large portions of vegetables to their diet. At the moment I'm eating two meals a day that consist primarily of vegetables. Before this diet I was primarily eating meat and carbs together in almost every meal, pretty much the typical american diet. I guess I just find it abnormal with how much vegetables or protein I can eat without feeling full.

Leaves alone are not enough - hungry after salad

Add a generous amount of beans, barley, quinoa, lentils, peas, or some combination thereof to the salad to get some low glycemic calories. The caloric content of salad greens is very low, too low for a satisfying meal. Even a huge bowl of leaves, while rich in nutrients, won't give you much fuel to burn. There is a whole world of bean varieties out there to explore. Try mung beans.

Best to make your own dressings using high quality olive oil. Commercial dressings are made with omega 6 oils like canola that promote systemic inflammation. Be careful, lots of olive oil is mislabeled and adulterated.

Eat more sweet potatoes. Prepare by boiling in water, and DO eat the skin.

Beets are good in salads, too.

also don't forget that your body needs time to get used to his new diet. It is only natural that after years of meat and carb - loaded meals, this is exactly what your body is screaming for in order to get some satisfaction.

Same with eating schedules - if one goes from 5 to 2 meals a day (or vice versa) it will take days or even weeks until the body stops yelling for his "usual" routine.

IF it turns out that you changed both diet AND the number of meals per day, I suggest adding good meals again to the prior level - that should help a great deal with both intake and usage of nutrition as well as the hunger feeling..

PS: good that you stick with salads!!!

PPS: in addition to @Zondor 's suggested list, you could add brown rice (or a mix of brown & white rice) too.

All the best

Don't pig out on rice

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/04/18/the-trouble-with-rice/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0

Most rice is unsafe due to heavy metal contamination. Arsenic, cadmium, etc, mostly from human caused pollution, but not always. For example, in Bengladesh there is a lot of arsenic naturally present in ground water.

In the US lots of arsenic from pesticides applied to former cotton fields and from manure of chickens that have been fed arsenic, FDA Approved!®, to make them grow faster and have that nice pink color.

I have been taking my chances with black rice from Thailand... who knows if it is safe.

Every year it gets harder to avoid these cascading dangers. This is at best a holding action. We are doomed.

Have a good day.

Arsenic how to deal with it

Hi Zondor,

My concept is: people need to be pro-active with their health: enviromentally, body and mind.

Thought I would share how to level the playing field with Arsenic and toxins being in our food.

1. Have a good water purification system in your home. I have used a Reverse Osmosis System for years, there are some that even put the minerals back into your water. They will pull out a lot of stuff, we do not want in our bodies.
.
2. Do not drink water from plastic bottles, they emit something from the plastic that does not support good health. If I am on the go, just fill a glass jar with your purified water and take it with you.

3. There is a product I use called "Immune Stimulator Program: Environmental, Viral and Bacterial, Fungal. It removes all of the above from your body plus metals and arsenic and even Chemtrail chemicals.

It is created by Bill Autmiller 661-837-0453
He is a homeopathic doctor on the cutting edge of environmental toxins etc.

It consists of 6 bottles:
1. Bio_Detox Formula (Enviromential)
2. Viral Immune Stimulator
3. Bacterial Immune Stimulator
4. Mycological Immunce Stimulator
5. Metex Metal Desensitization
6. Immune System Stimulator

Notes:
Use every 3 months for maintenance, one person using it will last for about 10 years.
I think it costs something around $100-125.00?

You basically take the 1st bottle and spray it into your mouth 3-5 times, wait 3 days and repeat with the 2nd bottle etc.

I was told, you might have a reaction with one of these bottles as it removes toxins.
So when I started, I did the 1st bottle on Friday night, in case I had a detox reaction. Then I would do the 2nd bottle the next Friday night........

It was either the 2nd or 3rd bottle, I had a cleasing reaction. All I can say is, good thing the bathroom wasn't a long distance away. By noon I finally was done expelling the toxins and I felt the best I had felt in years. It was a bit dramatic but well worth it because I felt so great afterwards.

Another benefit of this product is that it helps remove Chemtrail chemicals from your body.
Here is a video on Chemtrails:

Omega eggs, nuts, olive oil, salads with meat is pretty much what I live on too plus organic sweet potatoes if I am hungry and didn't eat enough that day or to keep out of ketosis. Anything past that I treat as a cheat meal.
I only buy organic sweet potatoes because they cost like 20 cents extra and taste awesome. The fact they are "organic" really doesn't mean much to me.
If I buy rice, I over eat it. There is just no way around that for me so I don't bother.


Itchymoku, I think you should add other meals and also try to figure out what the calorie count on your salad is. When you start eating less caloric dense food it is easy to not eat enough. The fact the volume of food is big doesn't mean much.

Biggest thing of all though is to be properly hydrated. If you get use to a month of being properly hydrated you will never go back to the state of dehydration most people live in.

As a general heuristic my brain shuts down when someone with Rachel's mindset starts talking.
