Splits and an attempt of scales

Some about food
Someone once said that eating is believing and it maybe sounds silly, but it's the truth. There are as many recommendations on what to eat as ways to train. Some say become a vegetarian, but I don't agree. You can continue to eat meat, but not as much as before and never with fat. That means continue eating what you ate before, but in normal proportions. Listen to your body and most important of all eat healthy. If your body asks for fruits, eat fruits and so on. You'll also soon find out that you'll quite automatically change your habits.
Something I recommend is to eat fruits, hazelnuts and a cup of tea for breakfast. For lunch 2-3 eggs and some fruits and to dinner always something cooked like meat or fish, root-crops/- fruits and some fruits. You can use all kinds of spices, but try to avoid salt as much as possible (this will be difficult in the beginning, but after some time you won't want salt to any kind of food, because it will taste awful). Except for that eat berries, sea food and honey. Also try not to eat for 1-2 hours before you exercise. Doing a backbend or a front bend with a full stomach isn't to be recommended. Also try not to drink alcohol and absolutely never smoke. If you start to train and drink alcohol (even if not a big amount) or smoke just one cigarette you will feel that your training will feel more difficult and you'll maybe not have the same range of movement the next day.
The result of this will be that you'll loose weight to what was your teenager average weight, the blood pressure will get lower and the same with the cholesterol. You will feel much better, think much better and it's much easier to practice.
Those eating habits remind much of what different yoga books recommend and contortion is very similar to yoga, but this is also what people ate in the stone age, but also on the island of Kitava where the living conditions are similar to the ones in the stone age. Many times the people there are very strong, flexible and different heart diseases doesn't exist. They never drink or eat alcohol, sugar, milk or cheese. In the end you decide what to eat and drink and these were only some healthy thoughts and recommendations to help you on the way.
