In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson

    food science is a very wide term..there are callories to measure, macronutrients, texture, decoration, nutritients..hard to define, there is always something to add to.

    thank you, i had dietetics on university and i remember we were obligated to do seminars and beside measure some kcal to cal and vice verse..

    yesterday my future and i had diacussion how we are unable to maintain basics in food, 3 main meals and 2 between, somehow i think that only sportmans are able to live like that ,otherwise i doubt..

    Certainly it would be very difficult for anyone leading a sedentary lifestyle @viciumartis. I have found now I am back home and working at a desk, I need to reduce dramatically what I eat from what I have been consuming during the past two weeks while trekking 12-20 kilometres every day. This afternoon I plan to go for a walk, though in the city it isn't quite the same.

    Yeah i meet you there when you say in a town, but somehow you are also able to do some kind of training if you cant afford gym..You know i also have some extra fat, but i am always in the move for 12 hours, carrying paients, driving around the hospital for diagnostics or treatments, sometimes i run when we have injuries in car accidents, you have to push stretchers ,beds,wheels,sometimes on your own..and unfortunatley deceived ones we always carry alone..put them in a fridge, etc..

    from surgery to unit and, back and forth..well i still find some extra power and time to do some cicuitry training, litlle punching bag, bench press, push ups or runing..

    then we have some around the house jobs like building, chopping woods and lining them up..

    But consuming is something else, i also at the moment eat chips, sour and cream ;)

    @viciumartis you have a very active lifestyle and your job is very demanding. I think you deserve it when you induge yourself with chips and cream!
  • viciumartisviciumartis Posts: 65 ✭✭
