On living healthy

     My interests are of course not only that I am blessed with health but those who read this blog are as well. In the course of teaching and lecturing on survival– when I come to sections covering survival rations, many students are not aware what “normal rations” are let alone survival. I find myself talking about average calories per day for an average person; how much water they should drink per day; and the percentage breakdown as far as carbohydrates, fats and proteins are concerned–even a little about how fat, salt and smoking work at clogging your arteries. Although it’s good and necessary information, it’s not nearly enough to what’s going on in the body and its real and potential effects.

     Without enough water, the circulatory system, electrolyte balance, liver, kidneys and other functions can not operate as efficiently as it is supposed to. Obviously over time, this could be a problem for our bodies and health. I am not interested per say in giving advise or lecturing at people, only facilitating a forum where sharing of information on the topic and make us all the better for it!

    Don’t wait til it’s too late…

    I’m pretty sure most “know” what healthy living is or at least have some idea about it. Devil’s always in the details… say anything and people just go off on you when all you really want to share is empathy, compassion and that you just plain care.

    2000 calories per day is average or normal for an adult; 15-1800 for an “average women” and more for a male adult pumping iron, e.g., as much 35-3800 calories per day or more.

    Composition; Carbs (53-56%), Fat (30%;10/10/10) or 10% saturated, the rest mono and poly unsaturated and finaly Protein (15%, really depends on if you’re weight lifting or what have you)

    …more to come.
