E-Mobility

Yesterday, the international Motor-Show in Frankfurt (IAA) saw a big protest, demanding an urgent change in politics towards eco-friendly mobility.

A lot of people think that this is only about the question which power train to use in a car.

Alas, it’s not. Even with an all-electric car, it’s still neither a good idea nor good use of resources to propel 2 tons of steel forward to get a single human being to work.

Rethinking mobility is much bigger and needs to focus on how to keep us mobile, with a strong focus on public transport and bicycles. It also includes questions like home office – why do people need to commute to work, if work could also commute to them?

If we’re serious about saving our planet, we need to stop putting individual car ownership on top of our agenda.

Reached 100, now towards 200

For a couple of weeks now, I’ve managed to maintain a weight below 100 kg – the first big milestone

Next milestone is a weight below 200 lbs., after which I will probably reward myself with a new game

So far, a low carb, high fat diet (LCHF, Keto) has been very good to me, and my GP is quite happy with my blood stats. I also almost by accident slipped into 16:8 interval fasting, simply because I wasn’t hungry and never was a big breakfast eater anyway

My long term goal for the next two years is to reach a normal BMI value
