I am done with the vending machines at school.

At 43 years young, I’ve decided to cut all the unnecessary snacking out of my life. I’m not eating any more candy. No more potato chips. I’m not wasting money eating anything unless it’s healthy. At this phase I have no idea what is really healthy or not, I’m at least going to try and figure it out. So far today I have eaten bananas, apples, orange, red pepper, and sunflower seeds. All I’m drinking is water. I’m trying to avoid sugar and salt as much as possible, if not altogether. I was never out of control with unhealthy foods. Still, I’ve decided it’s time to quit them all cold turkey.

I’m not an expert on diet even though I am working on a food startup. Eventually, I’ll become an expert or close to it. Currently, I’m a beginner. I watched a few videos on YouTube about nutrition, losing weight, farms, and things like that. It was an eye-opener. There were a few things I was eating that I cut out immediately. The videos gave me several ideas in total about how to improve my eating habits. If you have questions about your eating habits talk with a doctor. 

It’s already been over a week and I don’t miss the junk food at all. I have been going out of my way to stock up on healthy food. In addition to fruits and vegetables, I’m eating nuts without any salt. For example, cashews, almonds, and walnuts. 

I used to drink alcohol a few times per month. I completely cut that out. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t miss any of it at all. I live squeaky clean. I have been like this for years. Now my focus is to remove unhealthy foods from my routine permanently.

I don’t need unhealthy food, drinking or partying in my life to enjoy myself. For me, a fun time is feeling good. I want financial freedom so I can live my life how I want. I desire a nice condo in New York City, comfortable furniture, family and friends. Also, the ability to run my startups without having to waste my time doing things I don’t want to just because I need money.
