Mediterranean people live longer...less stressful lifestyles as well?

never forget cause and effect...when ice cream sales increase so do the incidents of drowning, will ice cream cause you to drown then???


Less stressful because they do fk all work. Useless, time-wasting w4nkers the lot of them.

I can't. I live in a flat. I have choices, but not everybody does.
The most generous estimates for non-high-tech self-sufficiency seem to come down to half an acre per person. I grew up in a home with a huge garden, easily four times anywhere else I've lived, but I've never lived anywhere with NEAR that ratio.


You can grow parsley, sage, corriander, rocket, basil in ice-cream tubs...

My gran turned 87 the other day and I still catch her shifting cookers, fridges etc in the kitchen. She's in the garden every day watering her aubergines, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, feed her chickens every day. Zero pesticides (lots of sheep manure), no alcohol, very little processed food, organic eggs, organic olive oil. Daily exercise. I'm 32 and she brings me a sandwich almost every morning, plus cooks dinner for me 5 nights a week. She does my washing. She was moving tables and sofas about today to do some dusting.

Red meat once every couple of weeks, and that's a modest amount of mince.

She receives 800 a month from her state pension, and national minimum wage is 2300 odd. She is expected to pay for her medication (one of her tablets is 260 a month, which I don't let her buy as I'm looking after that) as well as 150 electric, plus food and household bills. She can probably survive without me helping her out, and was doing fine before i got here. Moral of this story is probably that it doesn't HAVE to be expensive as you can grow most of your own food if you wish to live that way.

Having said that her mum died of cancer in her 50s, as did my maternal gran. Partly genetics I believe, but eating lots of fruit and veg with zero chemicals, olive oil, organic free range eggs etc. Is most likely not going to hurt.

ZERO motivation to train, so downed a preworkout and set up the squat rack

Sleeves and oly shoes on

Bar x 5
50kg x 5
80kg x 5
110kg x 5
130kg x 3
150kg x 10

There's some nice DOMS in my quads and glutes. Hand still isn't ready for heavy deadlifts so I will probably just do 10 sets total for lats - maybe 5 sets of lat pulldowns and 5 sets of rows, plus hamstrings/hypers.

I can easily feed myself healthily for a whole day for 4. I don't eat a lot...just 3 normal sized meals a day, lets say 2500 cals.


2500 calories - how much do you weigh? 180kg?

I don't understand chicken breasts. I used to just buy 3 chickens for 10, then cut them into pieces. If you calculate the costs, you pay for the breasts and get the rest for free. Kinda like some girls.

Edit: In Cyprus the cost of things are a little out - chicken is about 25 lira for one, and people earn about 100 a day. I often get a pack of lentils or chickpeas for 5-10 lira and boil them up once I've fried onions and added salt, pepper, cumin, curry powder etc. Half a bag will give me about 100g protein and 250+ carbs, plus lots of fibre.

Nice training sir...don't get injured


Thanks, just lack of motivation this past week. Also, broke as f**k and needing to teach kids, plus getting a new PT client on-board next week hopefully. Air-con is a must when it's 45 degrees during the long summer over here.
