Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

pretty much done with this for now, going to increase my calcium intake this month with lots of soymilk, and trying really hard to not have to eat fish. been craving steak a little bit but have been ok without it; i’ve been needing lots of protein, and am going to try tons of black beans this month for it. i wonder if it’s really possible to be healthy without eating fish or eggs. i prefer fish over eggs b’c i frig *(that means pulling up mucous from my stomach) up the eggs right after eating them (even though they’ve been cooked). they make me gag (actually, not like a valley girl)


this website has a lot about nutrient information


found a good site for the calorie calculating. . .

havent found anything as easy for the nutrient content


Guess I’ll try this anyway, if I try it for a year and it seems to have no effect then I’ll just focus on increased exercise (not that I wont also be doing that now)

1. mashed potato (1/3 cup) = 66 calories
2. coconut milk (1 cup) = 552 calories
3. almonds (1/3 cup) = 270 calories
4. walnuts (1 oz) = 130 calories
5. brazil nuts(6) = 137 calories
6. iceberg lettuce(1 cup) = 6 calories
7. green beans(1/2 cup) = 20 calories
8. beets(1/2 cup) = 35 calories
9. tomato sauce(1/4 cup) = 20 calories
10. golden raisins(1/4 cup) = 130 calories
11. pecans(1 cup chopped) = 822 calories
12. refried beans(1/2 cup) = 120 calories
13. canned tuna(1/4 cup) = 70 calories


I dont believe all tomatoes have the same amount of vitamin A
I dont believe it’s as simple as calories.
what does the speed of light from the sun have to do with calories? what about auric light? what if my problems arent diagnosable on a physical level?
