Seems no one wanted to watch my video. It is very short and I can almost guarantee you will be shocked at what you learn.

The nutrition labels and what the guy is talking about are both plain nonsense.

There are many things never (to my knowledge) listed on a food label.

I've never seen all the trace minerals listed. Iron usually is there.

I'd say that most Americans don't even know that they need:

Selenium
Manganese
Chromium
Zinc
Iodine

(and there are a few others too)

The food industry doesn't want a bunch of zeros next to them. It
wouldn't look good.

Interesting. I'm certainly familiar with pierogi! These days I only
eat the store-bought kind. The way my uncle used to make them was
very time consuming. The sauerkraut tasted better than the potato.

I posted a few weeks ago about bee pollen. Since you are apparently a vegetarian
you could try it. It has a different taste. There have been claims of serious allergic
reactions to it however. Start with a fraction of a teaspoon perhaps. I never had a
problem with it.

I just found this for what it's worth:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Serious allergic reactions to bee pollen have been reported, including potentially life-threatening anaphylaxis. These reactions occurred with small amounts of bee pollen, less than one teaspoon.The potential for serious reactions is widespread because at least 5% of Americans are allergic to ragweed pollen, and bee pollen contains pollen from ragweed or plants that cross-react with ragweed, such as dandelions, sunflowers, or chrysanthemums. Most of these case reports were with people with known allergies to pollen.

Is bee pollen good for you

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exercise is extremely important. That would be off-topic, but it's just a reminder to you.
I exercise indoors myself. I like the privacy. Also, no concerns about the weather or slipping
on an icy sidewalk, or cars to watch out for, etc.

Sugar is the enemy... continued

Vitals - Soda-drinking men at higher risk for heart attack

High blood levels of insulin due to sugary foods and excessive carbohydrate consumption are the hallmark of a diet that efficiently produces obesity and degenerative disease.

Eating a lot of small meals can be counterproductive, causing insulin and blood sugar levels to remain elevated for longer periods of time. Hunter gatherers may be better adapted to a sporadic food intake corresponding to the intermittent availability of food from game.

I try to eat fish several times a week, mostly sardines and salmon. That's the kind of healthy fat that is beneficial. Have not been eating walnuts lately... I should. Lots of health benefits.

Eating a large salad before a meal will tend to produce satiety and reduce overeating. The fiber content of the leaves, and the vinegar in the salad dressing, moderate the rate of rise of blood sugar from the subsequent meal. Please make your own salad dressing using monounsaturated olive or peanut oil, not carcinogenic polyunsaturated oil. Sometimes I mix chopped up salmon or sardines into the salad. Even very large salads have low caloric content, but can be quite filling. Half a pound of greens will fill a huge bowl.

The ONLY proven way to extend the useful and vital portion of lifespan is calorie restriction, proven in all species. My candidates for the top three nutrients believed to mimic this effect are resveratrol (from grape skins), curcumin (turmeric root), and milk thistle (the Silybun plant). Important adjuncts include Coenzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acid

Make sure you get enough magnesium and Vitamin D. Most people in the USA are deficient in both. If not eating red meat, be aware of the possible need for supplemental Vitamin B12.

If I live long enough I might actually become a profitable trader some day.... Right now my body fat is around 15% and I am slowly losing. Resisting the temptation to buy and use high carb calorie sources such as bread and pasta seems to help.

Typical day

Breakfast (10am).
1/4 cup roasted almonds
2-3 cups of tea
2000IU vitamin D pill

Lunch (noon).
Salad (Spinach, beef/chicken/pork, cheese, onion, avocado, dressing (olive oil or ranch)
Greek 0% yogurt with some berries
Fiber one bar

Snack ( 4pm)
Some meat and cheese or a protein shake

Dinner (6pm). I cook and enjoy cooking a range of things so it's hard to say what is typical
Some sort of protein (beef/chicken/pork or a fatty fish [salmon or trout usually])
Usually cheese
a lot of veggies (onions, peppers, avocados, broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower)
bacon, bacon on everything

I essentially follow a primal diet without being too strict (I eat peanut butter and cheese...)

Doing this I went from 5' 10" 220lbs to 174lbs. As my lifts has gone up I've increased my weight back to 185lbs.
Actual Deadlift 1RM - 365lbs
Actual Benchpress 1RM - 225lbs
Theoretical Squat 1RM - 240lbs

General comments to anyone.

In trading sometimes you've heard that following the rules is the main thing. To
me that's foolish. Results (ie. making money) is the main thing. In nutrition it is
the same. If you're following your own made up rules about eating it is meaningless
unless there are results.

I don't pretend to know much about health/nutrition but there are some things an
individual should know if one is really interested in the subject.

Along the lines of 'results':

What is your blood pressure and what exactly is 'blood pressure'?
What is a good blood pressure reading?
What does the first number mean, what does the second number mean?

If your blood pressure is high your diet could very well be at fault, even if you think it is not.

(There are other tests as well of course.)

=============================================================

Now along the lines of general knowledge of minerals...

Do you know why you need iodine and about how much per day is a decent amount?

Should an individual try to get more potassium than sodium per day, and if so, how
much more potassium?

(There are other minerals as well of course.)

=============================================================

Feeling good, especially if you're under 35, just doesn't tell the whole story.
