When you think of big portions, chances are you are GROSSLY underestimating your stomach's capacity. Your stomach is a primary organ of digestion lying just below your diaphragm. It can accomodate 3 L of food easily. This is 12 cups, or more!

While loading up on meat and cheese will cause you to consume excessive amounts of calories long before your bulk needs are met, often what happens when people focus on fruits and vegetables is exactly the opposite: you have to make an effort to eat enough, and eating too much is impossible!

Take this lunch, for instance:

That looks pretty huge. Would you be surprised if we told you that this HUGE bowl serves one??? What is in it, exactly?

4 cups chopped kale
2 bananas
2 oranges
7 dates
2 tomatoes
7 olives
1/2 an avocado
juice of one lemon

At 1,050 calories, this lion-sized lunch provides 35 grams of fiber and over 50 percent of the daily value for 14 essential vitamins and minerals, including 600 percent of the USRDA for vitamin C.

In addition, this lunch includes nearly 4 cups of water, so you'll be hydrated all the way up till dinner.

So go ahead and pile it high. Where nutrition is concerned, quantity counts just as much as quality - maybe more!

I was watching the TV show Naked and Afraid last night as I sometimes do. The show teams together two strangers, a man and a woman, who attempt to survive on their own for a period of 21 days in some remote and isolated region. Some of the locales featured include the Australian Outback, the Amazonian rainforest and the African Savanna. The man may have a military background, or be an adventurist or deep sea fisherman. Sometimes he's an ordinary dude who lives with mom. The woman is a park ranger or extreme fitness enthusiast or "just a mom" herself. Sometimes the couple quarrel, sometimes one or both "tap out" (quit) in a fit of anger or illness. It is satisfying to see them actually make it through the challenge and reach their extraction point. The victors are usually exhausted, emaciated, begrimed and bare ass naked. 

Even more satisfying, at least for me, is the occasional ass shot, snuck in at strategic intervals to boost viewership, of course. It's co…


In my days in the working world, doing the traditional 9 to 5 thing - although when I was a teacher it was more like 10 to 2 and 6 to 9; and as a doctor it was often 6 to 6 - I saw how easy it is to fall into the traps of so-called civilized life. I'm talking about modern vices. Things like drinking, smoking, drug use, promiscuity, and a diet of processed food, with or without animal flesh.

During my senior year of high school I decided it was necessary for me to abstain from these five vices. Each day that I didn't 1. drink alcohol, 2. smoke cigarettes, 3. do drugs, 4. eat meat, and 5. have sex or masturbate, was a day lived in the right direction. The direction of purity, divinity, wholesomeness, God consciousness. It was a way of distancing myself from my more earthy peers, who even at the tender age of 17 were indulging in many of these fleshy pursuits, and on a daily basis. I had soccer teammates who smoked a pack of cigarettes, getting their fixes before school, between …


I hereby proclaim that June is meditation month. And July and August and some of September too. For me at least. During the hundred days that comprise summer, give or take, I have taken it upon myself to "assume the position" for approximately one hour each day, usually divided into two 30-minute sessions. During this time I sit in front of a candle flame, let my breathing subside, and with it my mental activity, and literally count the seconds.

The reductive tendency that is emblematic of science has penetrated schools of meditation, and there are many, each of which advertises its particular breed as, if not being the best, at least boasting novel or specific benefits not found in other forms of meditation. 

For example, there is mindfulness, which is the monitoring of thoughts. There is concentration or focus, as on an object or the breath. There is transcendental meditation, which uses the inward repetition of a phrase, or mantra, to "allow your active mind to easily …
