Interesting Read, 2 Elements 4 discussion
I found this to be an interesting article in the day's reading activity.

there are 2 elements I thought may be of interest to discuss here.

1. Addiction

2. the growing trend of evolving from Flesh Consumption to Vegetarianism and/or veganism

and the article even links these two topics indicating some relationship from negative addiction(drugs/sex)/Flesh-consumption to positive addiction(exercise)/vegetarian-conversion


"A Plant-Based Diet Fuels This Punk-Rock Ironman
John Joesph's diet is key to his longevity—both on the stage and in races

John Joseph probably should have died a long time ago. Born into an abusive family, he lived on the streets as a teenager, eventually falling into drug addiction and doing time in prison in the 1970s.

Things were going south for the front man of the punk band Cro-Mags. After relapsing in 1988, Joseph took a two-year break from the band and started cycling. “People talk about rock bottom, but I was under the rock,” Joseph says. “I started working as a bike messenger ’cause that was the only job I could get. I was good at it, I could ride all day. Then I started doing pack rides with other messengers at night and taking long-ass rides out to the Hamptons to swim in the ocean.” He got sober in 1990 and soon returned to the Cro-Mags.


Now the 57-year-old New York City native is an Ironman finisher and the author of three books, including an autobiography and a self-help guide. Not only has he been sober for 29 years, he’s also arguably the healthiest person in the room. “The whole sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll thing is bullshit,” Joseph says from his home, fresh off a tour in Europe. “It’s a fantasy life. It’s not sustainable.”


Joseph tells me that his plant-based diet is key to this healthy lifestyle and has helped him reconcile his traumatic past. In 1980, H.R., the lead singer of the seminal punk band Bad Brains, convinced him to give up eating meat. “Since the moment of conception, I’ve been in a violent world, and I had a lot of anger from it,” Joseph says. “As soon as I eliminated meat, something clicked. This huge weight was lifted off of me. This violent nature that I had was gone. The diet was the first step. That’s when I started caring about what was going into my body.” Since then, Joseph has followed a strict plant-based diet for 39 years, even writing a how-to guide on the subject in 2014.-------(for more reading see rest of article)

Quote:Schwarzenegger is the standard when it comes to gubernatorial bodybuilding action stars. His dietary advice reflects his personality: strict, intense, and regimented.

These are Arnold's rules for daily eating and working out: Five to six "small" meals per day, eat carbs a half hour before exercising, 30-50 grams of protein with each meal every three hours, don’t avoid saturated fats, no more than three eggs a day, replace beef and pork with chicken and fish, avoid fish.


ARNOLD WOULD EAT AN ENTIRE CHICKEN AND DRINK A PITCHER OF BEER AFTER A WORKOUT.

Professor Redneck do you believe this new Schwarzenegger ideology is simply an aged evolution in wisdom or perhaps a result of some agenda?

Perhaps he is just trying to remain relevant in a world that attacks men for their masculinity.

I don't think one person should tell another person how or what to eat. Period.

If someone wants to eat kale and dragonfruit, go ahead. Just don't tell me that I ALSO have to do so.
