Heart rate 63 by the end of the day.

SpO2 is 100%.

SpO2 stands for peripheral capillary oxygen saturation, an estimate of the amount of oxygen in the blood.

It is the percentage of oxygenated haemoglobin (haemoglobin containing oxygen) compared to the total amount of haemoglobin in the blood.

In this third week of the year my health app gave me a report with this numbers:

Avg. carb intake 156.7 g
Avg. fat intake 37.8 g
Avg. protein intake 22.9 g

Avg. carb percentage 59.0%
Avg. fat percentage 32.0%
Avg. protein percentage 9.0%

I did forget to log a couple of days and missed a few fruits, but the average numbers should be close to real.  I ate more seeds this week than I do usually. It had been cold.

Winter berry choices: organic raspberries and wild blueberries.

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

Watermelons are still good.

A girl from the Ancient Egypt in Chakrasana

I started studying Yoga when I was 17 with Patanjali Yoga Sutras in various translations, and then read tons of book on various traditions in Yoga (Hatha, Pranayama, Kundalini, etc). First, I would like to present to you my personal compact version / interpretation of the 8 limbs of Yoga योग.

Yoga Sutras are based on atheistic philosophy Samkhya, an orthodox (Astika) and atheistic hindu system of dualism.

Nishi Shiki was invented in 1927 by Katsuzō Nishi, the chief engineer for the Tokyo subway and an aikido teacher.

Most of my life I followed the first four rules every day, and substituted the rest with yoga asanas.

I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

Choline Recommended Intake from Seeds and Fruits

Choline is an essential vitamin-like (vitamin B4) nutrient, synthesized in human body, but not sufficiently.

The recommended adequate intake (AI) of choline is set at 425 milligrams (mg)/day for women and 550 mg/day for men.

Choline deficiency causes muscle damage and abnormal deposition of fat in the liver, which results in a condition called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Genetic predispositions and gender can influence individual variation in choline requirements.
