Stealing young people’s ideas and using your years of experience can be a winning combination for older folks…
Nice intro, really! It’s short, and it’s “timeless”. +2 and -0!
– “… It’ll keep working, even after doomsday!” True! Lol 🙂
– Another reason why you shouldn’t talk about your ideas, especially not on forums is that your idea can be really awesome. Somebody else will simply steal your idea. The chance that you invent “the next Facebook” however is very unlikely, but Zuckerberg proved that it’s not impossible.
– About exercising, I can only say this: “You do you!” 🙂 Personally, I like to do hard running at 6.00am because it just takes 20minutes. After taking a shower, breakfast, getting myself ready, talking to and feeding my cat, it’s 7.30am which makes that I arrive at my work exactly 10 minutes early (I use public transport). I’m doing this for 5 years now and I don’t know why, but this routine opens my mind and it gives me the energy that I need to start my day very focused.
You seem to be doing well with your fitness progress. You don’t have to over obsess about calories. I normally don’t count calories from vegetables or fruits. Definitely, count the calories from rice/potatoes and fat from oils but for muscle gain (or retention) the protein intake is what matters.
Since you eat mostly vegan, the caloric bang for the buck is pretty nice in terms of feeling full. You can eat large satisfying meals without going calorie crazy. To receive the complete amino acids you just need to have a combination of grains (rice) and pods (beans/peas).
At the end of the day, there is no right or wrong. All the nutrition systems that ACTUALLY work are all based around the same concept: creating a caloric deficit. What makes the systems succeed or fail is consistency and self-discipline.
