It is sufficient to say I am new to this. Thus I could use some advice.
I'll go ahead and give this one a shot. Here would be my basic, entry level suggestions:
Hair: not doing you any favors, however my hair type is much different from yours, so not sure what I'd recommend
Frames: not a good look, looks very childish to me. I'd recommend Warby Parker for some cheap decent looking frame options.
Shirt: polo shirts are pretty universally disliked on this forum, and that one fits way too large and is being worn with a white undershirt. For very basic outfit suggestions I'd recommend basic plain t shirts in subdued/muted colors (American Apparel, Uniqlo, Asos, etc) and basic button-up oxford style shirts (Uniqlo, Gap on sale, etc).
Jeans: not a very good looking wash, and very poor fitting from the picture. I'd recommend a basic dark denim, in a slim straight-skinny cut. This might be the hardest transition for you; as it doesn't look like you're much of a slimmer-style jean wearer; but it'll look much better than those that you're wearing. Uniqlo or Levi's 514/511/507 are good options for this.
Shoes: current shoes are bad, relegate to back of closet for working out and yard work. Basic low profile shoes are the usual Vans/Chuck Taylor/Jack Purcell/etc, choose your poison.
Since July 1 2013, I have been on the watercress diet.
This is actually a cleanse dating from classical/pagan times...based, if I understand correctly, on the medical principles of Hippocrates himself! If carried out for a fortnight, it was supposed to purge the body of all toxins and residual wastes.
Since July 1, I have eaten nothing but "fresh", freshly-washed watercress. Fresh is in inverted commas, since I buy it at the grocery store and I don't know how long ago it was picked from the water, and where and how it matured. I can only judge freshness based on appearance, smell and taste.
Anyway, the point is--I am having some bizarre side-effects, and I not sure if I should be worried. My urine has a very mustardy smell...VERY strong smell. Also, with all this warm humid weather, we are all hot and bothered, and I am giving off a mustardy aroma into the air. Also, I am not sure how, but I have gained 5lb since July 1. My Number 2 is fine....nothing to give any cause for concern, everything is moving well and coming out looking normal.
Today I was feeling nauseous, and someone said that the watercress diet may have been a cleanse in classical times, but today it only amounts to ingesting massive amounts of pesticide, herbicide and other chemical effluents that wash into the water that the watercress is cultivated in. With nothing else in the diet except watercress, there is nothing else in the diet--no insoluble fibre, antioxidants, etc. to help clear out the non-organic chemicals. If anything this is health-damaging, than cleansing. Has anyone else heard this, or for that matter, tried any other cleansing diets?
