What do you do to keep up your fitness? Do you have a fitness routine?  

Currently nothing because I have a serious stomach disorder that makes it very painful for me to eat anything. So I conserve calories as much as possible.

Once that's healed I will be doing jogging, weightlifting, and maybe I'll buy a bike.

@Leo Gura Hey Leo, how is your carnivore diet going? Is it still helpful? Or did you move on to other things after your last update on your vlog?

I find your health update vlogs very helpful for figuring out new ideas for my autoimmune disorders.

I’ll never stop going to the gym, I absolutely love how good it makes you feel and look. 
 

yes, I do it for health and because working out is fun & helps me maintain healthy eating & healthy habits such as discipline, routine and just healthy blue / orange habits. 
 

But, there’s defo an element of “Ego” in terms of comparing my body to last year, 2 years ago & wanting to look as good as possible, but it can also be seen as an “art” of testing your body well & sculpting it.

There is also a way to do it sustainably- no drugs / Sarms etc, only using healthy supplements, maingaining instead of constant bulk / cut cycles which really isn’t great for you, using proper form, adding in cardio, other forms of exercise 

Its just like most sports & to be honest most things in life, they can be done from an egotistical / unconscious perspective or they can be made more & more conscious etc 

But, at the end of the day, life is all about having fun & enjoying yourself, so if you enjoy the process of working out & getting jacked, and aren’t causing harm, then do it! It also brings a myriad of physical / mental health benefits I haven’t even mentioned here

It is still helpful but it has not solved my problem.

I don't have anything new to update yet. I am in the middle of troubleshooting various things.

@Leo Gura When you get back into Training, who are you going to follow for training & nutrition advice out of interest? 
 

I like Greg Doucette & people like him as they openly admit they use Steroids My biggest pet peeves is the young “fake nattys” as they are targeting 14-25 year olds and giving them a lot of false hope, which is very dangerous imo. Gymshark really Need to sort this out.

Technically, it's ego.

But that doesn't make it bad.

What's the alternative? Having a bad body? Why would you choose to look bad? To feel more spiritual?

@Michal__ haha, exactly. 
 

I think a lot of the time it can be a spiritual ego / bypass issue. 
 

Like we all know working out & eating clean is good for our physical & mental well-being, so by simply saying it’s “not spiritual” is an easy way to get out of disciplining yourself and letting yourself off the hook. 
 

Could it also be a sign of a Blue / Orange shadow since to me it seems like a sign of healthy aspects of these stages if you have a good body & take care of yourself etc

I don't need to follow anyone.

This ain't rocket science and I am not a baby duck.

I think it's a matter of perception what the OP was trying to say but I agree with this point, probably hard to practice spirituality with a perpetual brain fog and lack of energy

It's not sick to watch them any more than it's "sick" to watch Chris's videos and other similar videos. People in the fitness industry are full of ego and full of misinformation, which can hurt people watching those videos. So there come the counterbalance videos, so to say, which call those people out.

If you're making YT videos and your information is bad overall, don't be surprised if you get called out for it.

I'm not surprised at him getting called out for it. I'm surprised people on this forum still click on videos so low consciousness it hurts my head. Like think for yourself god damn I don't need critics to approve my sources. Find more sources yourself and weed out the good and the bad.

@Leo Gura I don't know what you have, and I don't have time to watch blog vids, I also know you don't want advice.

Sitting in a PC chair for hours really fucked me and I couldn't eat normal, I'd feel like I was gonna die sometimes after eating a little piece of food. For 2-3 years I couldn't walk after I ate. 100% thought I was dying. Read every article possible on the internet about stomach problems, I'm the best I ever felt now just from using my body everyday instead of letting all my organs crunch up together in a computer chair. The computer / office lifestyle is breeding cancer. Used to be 8-16 hours day at the PC now I try not to go on it unless I'm absolutely doing work, and my lifestyle is way more active. Life away from the PC sucks when you are used to it that much, but it's for the better and it gets better. To be honest the new generation doesn't have a clue what they're in for. 

Good luck with everything, I don't know what you do everyday but I personally underestimated the damage certain chairs do to my gut, especially this DX racer chair it raises your legs in the slightest inch and that makes everything hell compared to a chair that's down a little bit.

Walk/Stretch as much as you can, doctors are so wrong with all these diagnoses. 

Stomach issues really fuck with your mind.

oh yeah and I've always been very thin if I sound like a fat slob

@LfcCharlie4

This is what I was thinking. 

 

But also, looking "good" has survival advantages.

Most people will tend to take you more seriously, whether they're conscious of it or not. There's no faster way to seem like you are well disciplined, are driven, know what you're doing, etc, than having a well-trained body. 

It also makes you attractive to the opposite sex, making it easier to fulfil your carnal desires.

All ego, yes. Survival is harsh. But it's still within our biology.
