Hey, saw your lap-swimming page for the first time! A 1650 is a good distance for a non-competitive swimmer!
Just for reference, not to make you feel bad - today I went a straight 4K, 176 lengths, 88 "laps", in about 70 minutes.
You could go a lot faster and further in freestyle not breaststroke.

Thank you!
I prefer breaststroke for many reasons.
I wish I had a lake to swim :)

Feedback, besides the name of this page, is a nice encoding of what I am about to say here.

Pumpkin seeds, and fruit seeds in general, are not ethical fruitarians' food since there is no good ethic in general eating of fruits without any natural feedback to their species' life cycle, that is, without the release of those fruits' seeds into the environment; such a release would give chances for those seeds to grow into new plants of their kind. If the seeds from fruits are eaten and digested, those apparently cannot grow into new plants. Fruit seeds may be swallowed and even accidentally digested, but that does not make them regular food.
By “fruits” I mean fleshy fruits; and by “fruit seeds” I mean seeds from fleshy fruits, not seeds from pods, nor nuts, nor seeds in general.

This comment is about pumpkin seeds being mentioned in Amino Acids in Fruits and Seeds, and refers to ethics in fruitarianism discussed in Defining Fruitarianism and elsewhere on this site.

This is beautiful:

“From philosophical perspective, veganism is a subset of fruitarianism, because fruitarians take to consideration lives of other living organisms, which do not necessarily belong to animal kingdom (Animalia or Metazoa).”

Let me match your behavior, Lena, as the ethical fruitarianism author that you are, to that of a fruit plant species. So, you have your habitat at fruitarians.net, where your fruit plants – the articles (t)here – grow, yielding fruits – the sentences, and we, the readers, pick those fruits, digest them into thoughts and feed our minds. There is at least one idea – the seed – of (ethical) fruitarianism in each topical sentence of your articles, so when we digest the sentences, we get their ideas/seeds. Now, do you like us to feed back those ideas, possibly made up in us, to your habitat, so they may grow into new articles?

Albert Schweitzer

The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies. 

Enterotypes and Microflora

An enterotype is a classification of living organisms based on its bacteriological ecosystem in the gut microbiome. Humans can be roughly divided into three enterotypes depending on which genus of bacteria dominates their gut: Bacteroides, Ruminococcus, or Prevotella. 

  • People who eat a lot of meat and saturated fat tended to have more Bacteroides in their flora
  • Ruminococcus prevailed in people who consumed lots of alcohol and polyunsaturated fats. 
  • Prevotella favored a diet rich in carbohydrates.

Long-term diet is strongly associated with the gut microbiome composition. If switching gut enterotype is possible, it may take a long-term dietary intervention. 

Chimpanzees have enterotypes that are compositionally analogous to those found in humans.
