Best Diet Takes Work !




  The best diet is driven by a disciplined lifestyle. Ask yourself “are you trying to lose weight” or “are you looking to be healthy for the rest of your life”? Do you eat morning noon and night out of tradition or do you eat according to your own body’s clock? Do you eat portions handed to you or do you eat according to your caloric needs?

Answering those questions truthfully is the start of a healthy existence where you not only look great, but feel great as well and have that energy level that allows you to focus on the life style you wish to live. May that be an exhilarating career, writing that novel, a frequent essayist, artistic endeavors, helping others, coaching, and the list goes on. Combine a good diet (food combo) with effective time management and a little exercise and you will have a winning lifestyle. One that affords physical and mental comfort at the same time.

Let’s solve the not so mysterious mystery. What constitutes a good diet? Think of concentric circles where the primary central core is vegetables. Vegetables offer it all! Protein, nutrients, vitamins, fiber, all the good stuff. You can each them raw, cook them, saute them, use spices, skewers, you name it! The next outer circle is fruits. They are the source of guess what? Energy, nutrients, vitamins, and fiber as well! Then there is the third core out being lean proteins. They are chicken, turkey, pork, and fish/seafood. Outer core four would be multi grain breads, low sugar yogurts, nuts, milk, and cheese.

In a perfect world, that is not so perfect, we aim for distributions not perfection. My favorite is the 80/20 rule known as a Pareto Distribution. So applying the 80/20 rule to diet. Your diet would consist of 80% vegetables, fruits and lean proteins with the remaining 20% consisting of multi-grain breads, low sugar yogurts, nuts, milk, and cheese. In regards to fluids: water, tea, coffee, and yes beer, wine and spirits in moderation.

Just think what gourmet food really is? Real chefs do not prepare junk. They prepare and present the best there is to eat. And guess what? That is what we just listed above. Their secret is spices, food combination (for example matching vegetables with lean meats and seafood) and cooking times. Chefs bring out the best in food. In general, help yourself to spices. They are the enhancement that brings out the best there is in taste. Good eating is not just for the rich. It is available to all.

Executive Summary: Keep in mind Henry David Thoreau the master of “Live Simply” ate primarily vegetables, fruits, nuts and bread. Eat a healthy diet in combination with simple time management concepts and yes a little exercise will put you on track to a happier lifestyle.

GunSafe Concept …

Concept “GunSafe”- Goal to Get Legally Registered Firearms into Safe Holding Areas (An Opinion).

Premise – The vast majority of people who have firearms use them for sport, such as target shooting, and for hunting. Some just collect firearms out of historical fascination with the devices. Most firearm owners only use their rifles, pistols et al during a few periods of the year then store them away. These firearms are often stored within the owner’s home in a multitude of locations that are far from secure such as closets, desk drawers, filing cabinets etc. Most often NOT a gun safe!

A “GunSafe” (aka storage facility) would afford the gun owners a safe and secure place to store the devices (Firearms) until needed. A “GunSafe” facility would be (could be) established at the local police station or an authorized location to house firearms in a “safety deposit box” fashion.

There are situations whereby a family member who possessed the proper firearm credentials becomes disabled or passes away leaving next of kin in possession. They could use the “GunSafe” program as a safe harbor to store the firearms until ownership (with proper credentials) is established. The “GunSafe” program would be ideal for families that have a mentally ill member from getting ahold of a legally registered firearm from another family member who does not have an adequate place to insure it is locked up such as in a safe.

Concept – Offer a “GunSafe” program to get firearm owners to store there rifles and pistols in metal safes at the local police station or an authorized location when not in use or there is a potential domestic problem within a family. Conceptually the program would be similar to safe deposit boxes. Perhaps a commercial franchise venture may arise offering “GunSafe” safety deposit boxes for your firearms.

Draft initiatives for Local Towns and Cities:
Encourage owners to store their firearms at the local police stations or an authorized “GunSafe” facility when not in use.
Guns are locked in secure gun safes.
Insurance opportunity for local insurance agents if firearms are accidentally stolen or destroyed.
Safes bought by local benefactors or by way of fundraisers.
Benefit – Gets firearms that would sit in desk drawers and other household hiding places into a secure area.
The program would also offer firearm safety courses.
Police are absolved of any harm that may come to the firearms. By way of state law.
Police are absolved of any judgement to the state of a firearm owners mental state.
Allows police to assess the skill sets of firearm users. And make suggestions on best practices.
Allows the weekend firearm enthusiast to safely store firearms when not in use. For example hunters have limited “open seasons” and then store the firearms in closets etc.

Note – This is just a concept, an idea, an opinion if you will. Feel free to run with it!

Solar Pumpkins …

Solar Halloween Pumpkins – Why not add a new twist to those pumpkins you have carved out for Halloween! Make a solar powered pumpkin that lights up at night! The lights we use were purchased on Amazon. Use the light as your template to cut the top of the pumpkin to the right diameter so the solar light does not fall through, When finished it looks like a “hat” on top of the pumpkin. During the day the solar cell charges an internal battery then when it gets dark the pumpkin lights up. This is a lot easier than placing candles inside the pumpkin or running electric cords out in the yard.
