Amazingly i’m doing ok in my quest for health. I lost 25 pounds already in this first 35 days. I still have a long way so i gotta feel determined to go on since the fear of health issues that made me start this diet so well already faded. I feel really good eating less and doing 45 mins od stationary bike everyday. Sometimes there’s a huge crave but it goes away. The changes in routine are the most scary thing now. I’m 100 percent then i go to a dinner in a client’s house. The food is all full of calories so i gotta eat less than usual. I get home starving and i try to remember: One day at a time. It will pass and tomorrow everything starts again. It makes one wonder how crazy is our relation with the fuel we need to survive. As i read in history men have starved for millions of years. Before the last 5 thousand years men were not very good in finding and keeping food so men starved and died of hunger. Probably that’s why we feel so helpless when we have to avoid food. It’s going against an old instinct forged in our DNA to keep us alive . Yes… It’s hard to go against your own nature. But not impossible. Of course the very developed food industry now creates the inverse situation. Food is too easy to find even when we don’t want to so we lost the measure of how much is healthy to consume. I hope some day there will be signs in Big Macs like those signs the put on cigarette boxes. ” Surgeon general warning: This burger may destroy your heart and may give you colon cancer” or ” Surgeon general warning: this milkshake can make you forget the name of your wife” or even ”  Surgeon general warning: This chocolate may complicate your diabetes and make you loose your legs”

I forgot about this book a long time ago but when o was a kid it used to haunt me. The idea that humans were spawn by aliens is as old as the idea of extra terrestrial life. I actually believe that it can exist life outside this blue planet of ours but i never saw any interaction that was told or photographed or recorded in video and so on that convinced me it is real. The book in other hand talks about stuff that i can believe and some ideas that i can relate with like the design and the engineering Mayas had a long ago and egyptians even earlier. What amazes me though is the belief people have in extra terrestrials these days. I talk to many friends that like some of you believe aliens are living among us for a long time and they are helping us to evolve. Others believe totally in abductions and contacts. Again nothing against that but in my opinion the world got to clever. There’s not much room for god and religion in many people’s minds. The only reality accepted is the material one. I think believing in Aliens and the idea they could be our spawners have to do with the necessity to create gods. Maybe mayas did those giant monuments to adore alien gods that didn’t ever appeared in this planet. Maybe they did meet people from other planets that visited us and for some reason are not here anymore. Maybe just like a lot of people i know today they were searching for explanations. It could be their version of our science fiction even so it’s the more believable theories of extra terrestrial live i found in all my reading. What is important in all this is that people are still looking for answers and all the technology available didn’t quiet their hunger. This is a big relief for me because that hunger is the wheel that pushes our species forward. We are still young after all.
