All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

My app informed me once again that I made two marathons this month of 2016 - accumulated, of course :-) - 84K this December.

Today at around 9 am, I finished another 10K, with 82 meters elevation gain, burning 460 calories. It was a cold morning, I didn't want to stop moving in order to film a vlog.

I stopped twice though. The first time after the first kilometer to jump and to make some exercises, including grand battement. The second time after the 8th, to stretch and relax.

I try to run once or twice a week, but if I have an opportunity, I allow myself to run 3-4 times, and if I want more, I go for a long walk, combining it either with listening audio books, or to gather some B-roll footage or photographs with a camera.

I borrow the books through another app in a local library, and usually manage to find good titles in the nonfiction section, preferably on business or investment.

For many years I used to listen to music on my runs, but now I reserve my best playlists for dancing and other exercises.

I added a few recent scenes from my life to the visuals of the today's run and put together this 27th vlog.

My next week will be quite busy, so this might be a good chance for me to wish you a happy switch to the new year.

Vitamin B1 Thiamine

Vitamin B1 (Thiamin, Thiamine) is one of 8 B vitamins, the first B vitamin discovered. All B vitamins help the body convert carbohydrates into glucose, which the body uses to produce energy, B-complex vitamins also help the body metabolize fats and protein. All B vitamins are water soluble.

All living organisms use thiamine, but it is synthesized only in bacteria, fungi, and plants. Animals must obtain it from their diet, therefore for humans it is an essential nutrient.  Your body needs it to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy.

B1 helps convert food into energy, needed for healthy skin, hair, muscles, and brain. 

Thiamine deficiency has a potentially fatal outcome if it remains untreated. In less-severe cases, nonspecific signs include malaise, weight loss, irritability and confusion.

Recommended daily amount: 1.1 - 1.2 mg (~ 50 g of flaxseeds, or sesame tahini, or 100 g pine or sunflower seeds, or corn flour).
