We live in societies of over consumption and consume to offset the consequences of over consumption.

Don’t believe me? How much did you eat today? Did you go to the gym to work out these extra calories? Did you drive to the gym? Told you so!

This reminded me of my favourite minimalist: Jack Reacher, created by Lee Child. Reacher buys new clothes to change; carries his toothbrush and credit card in his pockets and lives in cheap motels

I want to be like Reacher; but now I am off to the gym to work out my rather generous breakfast.
