The website, This Is Why You're Fat clearly shows the various reasons. We have some very odd food choices on this planet of ours, and through the contributions of visitors to the website, an amazing collection of the most revolting foods has come to be

2009-06-03T13:13:44.570-06:00(image) As you may be aware, I'm not the least bit for dairy. I don't believe it has any place in our diet. There is ample evidence by major universities and organizations in the world about the adverse effect of dairy on our bodies. T. Colin Campbell, in his book The China Study, proved a direct link between dairy and both diabetes and prostate cancer (pg 178).
2009-06-02T14:09:00.527-06:00The other day on twitter, @privatestudmuff asked me in a humorous way about what I think about before going to bed. As a way of role modeling, by getting into someone's head and finding out what they think about, they can duplicate the results. I believe this is what he was doing (or at least hope so).
"I now create a wonderful new job."
If you are unhappy with the job you currently hold, you don't have to stay in that state of mind. You can thank that job for all it has provided and affirm "It is now time to create a wonderful new job."
If we show gratitude and set something free, we're not feeding it with negative thoughts and feelings, and keeping it in our energy space to be worked through time and time again. We can thank "it" for what it's provided and let it go...opening the door to new possibility.
What will you create today?
2009-05-21T16:44:21.545-06:00So, I could go into a long description of the technical difficulties that occurred in the previous 7 Minute Muscle Half Off Special offer that I alerted you to earlier in the week in the post "how short is your workout", but I don't see the point.
2009-06-04T12:51:17.369-06:00(image) Quinoa is the superfood grain that’s not a grain and was considered the "food of the Gods" by the Inca’s. Quinoa is more related to the seed family than the grain family and carries a healthy dose of protein along with all 9 essential amino acids. Because quinoa has all 9 essential amino acids, it’s considered a complete protein. If you're wondering how to cook quinoa, the video included here will help.
2009-06-02T16:28:33.159-06:00How long does your workout have to be to get the optimal results in muscle mass as well as the fat burning benefits? Should it be as long as a 2 hours so that you get a “great workout”, only as long as an hour? It should actually be no longer than 45 minutes and if it is, you’re not training with enough intensity. It should be shorter, not longer. The question the becomes “How short should your workout be to receive the best muscle building stimulus?” 45 minutes? 30 minutes? 15 minutes? How about as low as just 7 minutes?[NOTE: this was a 5 day special that ended Sunday May 24th. This Half price sale is over]I began my muscle building workout program back in 1991 when I was at my lowest weight of 187. At the time, I trained at home and my workout lasted about an hour.I eventually outgrew my home gym and began training at the gym. My workouts grew to be over 2 hours in length with 30 minutes of that being abdominal training alone. I trained 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, but by Friday, I was often too exhausted or just not interested any longer. I battled fatigue, burnout, low sex drive and was sick a lot of the time.Fast forward 17 years.I saw this 7 minute muscle workout routine that Jon Benson was talking about and to be honest thought it was so stupid. 3 minute abs and a complete muscle building workout in 7 minutes.Ya right.Then I listened to his “How It Works” audio, and thought ”hmmmmm”Then I heard from a very fit friend who said she collapsed during one of the workouts from exhaustion and then thought "what the hell is this thing?" and "I have to have a serious look at it"I bit.In January, I began using the it and got gains in strength and size very quickly from using the very short 7 minute routines. I found that it was the most efficient thing I’ve ever done, not only in the time spent in the gym, but in the way it works. I’m able to sufficiently stimulate my muscle groups in the short 7 minutes and then walk out of the gym.I’m saving a lot of time and I’m getting results.I track all my workouts so I know when I’m progressing and by how much. In a couple of instances, I’ve had a 35% increase in strength from one week to the next.I’m actually INTERESTED in going to the gym again, fascinated by the results and crave my workouts. Yes, I crave them again.In February, following a week off in Vegas, I progressed to the second stage of the program which doubles the workout time to 14 minutes (two of the 7 minute routines back to back) and in some cases added in a portion of the 3rd stage.I can split the 14 minutes into two workout sessions, one in the am and one in the afternoon, or if it’s a rushed day, I can do it all in one session.The other day, I was out for lunch with some buddies and one said "holy shit, you’re packing on some upper body size"That was great for the ego, let me tell you.7 Minute Muscle for Half Price If you’re short on time, want to change up your current weight loss workout program, or have NEVER done a workout ever before in your life, this program is for you. For the next 5 days, I can offer the seven minute muscle workout for HALF price if you follow me on twitter.===> Follow Me On Twitter If I didn’t tell you about this amazing half price sale, I wouldn’t be doing my job, and I’d never hear the end of it from my readers and subscribers (who I told about it on Saturday when I first heard)I’ve had a lot of feedback since I began talking about it on facebook that "it sounds good but it’s too much money."Not for the next 5 days.Like I said, when I first heard of it, I thought "How can this be possible in just a short 7 minutes" but in fact, the science behind it is sound. We THINK we need to spend 45 mi[...]

2009-05-16T12:51:30.869-06:00There was a time in my life when I was underweight believe it or not. I desperately wanted to gain weight after my 300 pound weight loss, and having no where to start, I just began. Thankfully, my body type is an Endomorph / Mesomorph and has an easier time gaining weight than the Ectomorph. If you’re not familiar with the names Ectomorph, Mesomorph or Endomorph, they’re used to describe body types. Mesomorph and Endomorphs are on the larger end of the scale – from naturally muscular and fit like a natural body builder and then moving through the body types that gain weight easily (think Santa Claus or John Goodman). If you’re overweight, your most likely Endomorph.Ectomorphs are HardgainersEctomorph are on the smaller end of the scale. They are small framed body types and have a hard time gaining muscle. They are sometimes referred to as “hardgainers”I certainly did not struggle gaining nearly 60 pounds, even while on a primarily vegetarian diet, but I DO understand how the hard gainer must feel wanting to be bigger while working his ass off and not getting ahead. IIf you’re an Ectomorph hardgainer and have done any sort of research about what to do about it, I’m sure you’ve heard that you’re not eating enough and that you’re not lifting heavy enough.Right?Well, most of the people giving you that advice is wrong. They’re a completely different body type and respond differently. They have no business telling you what to eat and how to train because what THEY do has nothing to do with YOUR body type.Why would an Ectomorph listen to advice from a Mesomorph? That’s like a chess master giving advice to someone playing a video game. They’re both games, but they require a different approach and each have different needs or skills.The Ectomorph has to train differently and eat differently than the Mesomorph. It’s NOT about protein and food overload.Gaining muscle is totally possible, so all is not lost. There are a number of ectomorphs who’ve gotten muscular before you. I see it happen all the time. It’s just a matter of knowing what to do and then putting in the work. It’s the same for fat loss. It’s not impossible, but you have to have a system in place to achieve your goals and a roadmap to get you there. A step by step program if you will.The picture to the right is of a muscular Ectomorph. He’s got the small frame but has packed on the muscle. He’s certainly not going to win Mr Olympia, but I’m sure he’s proud to take his shirt off in public.Hardgainer Diet Plan Jeff Anderson has figured out the science behind gaining weight and put it into a package that makes sense. It’s a 3 step system. Easy as pie, well except for the lifting part.I’ve seen it and I approve of the science behind it. There’s nothing tricky, nothing fishy at all – just a specific type of training and a highly specific type of eating to accompany it.Hardgainer Project X is being released on the 19th of May, but Jeff wants you to know what it’s all about, so he has a free eBook and MP3 to give youGo to the Hard Gainer Project X website and get your free report and MP3.See the before pictures of his 6 guys who have been testing this for him there too.If you've EVER struggled with gaining weight and building muscle, this report will open your eyes and give you a sense of RELIEF that it's NOT because you weren't training ENOUGH......it's because you were training WRONG![...]

2009-05-04T10:18:23.363-06:00Even without a television, I find it almost impossible to ignore the swine flu messages being bombarded into our brains each and every day. CNN is covering the swine flu as though it was Armageddon. It’s not. Knowing that the media is designed to manipulate our decisions in all facets of our lives, I became fascinated with what message it is that they’re trying to sell.Swine flu “marketing” seems to be about drugs more than anything else. It seems to bring our attention to the precautions we can take to protect ourselves from it, now and for the next round.Drugs are NOT the answer and never have been. Drugs are the PROBLEMIt’s important to clarify something before I move on. Based on the principles of the law of attraction (LOA), if we continue to focus on the swine flu and what the media is reporting as the “dangers of swine flu” then more and more fear is going to develop.What you focus on expands. It’s a simple principleAs you begin to exercise, you begin to lose weight. The more you exercise, the faster you lose the weight and the more interested you become in exercise, exercise routines, good food and better eating. It expands the more you focus on it.Swine Flu SolutionAs a solution to this media based frenzy about the swine flu here is my step by step plan to peace of mind during the pandemic.1. Turn off your television2. Quit reading the paper for at least 2 weeks (or better yet, for good!) 3. Focus on taking care of your immune system, eating well, and exercisingIt’s your immune system and your mind that are your allies now (and forever).Dr Mercola from Mercola.com says that the #1 priority for protecting yourself without drugs, vaccinations or inoculations is :Optimize your vitamin D levels. As I've previously reported, optimizing your vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is likely the TRUE culprit behind the seasonality of the flu -- not the flu virus itself.I use this source of Vitamin D which combines calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and Boron along with digestive enzymes to deliver it 100% into my body. It’s wonderful added to my protein shakes because it’s strawberry flavored or mixed with ice and blended by itself as a nice drink.The rest of the strategy for improving your immune system includesAvoid all sugars and processed foods – your immune system simply stops working for 30 minutes or more after the consumption of sugarGet optimal rest – sleep, rest, let your body heal and recover which goes hand in hand with:Reduce your stress – using any techniques you have available. Meditation, yoga, massage etc.Exercise - the simple act of walking pumps your lymph system and allows your body to clean itself. A cleaner body is more efficient, stronger and more able to resist infection. Oxygen is your friendWash your hands – Stay away from hospitals and especially vaccines - I've heard that even doctors are advising that you phone first, before just showing up at the hospital if you think you have the flu, so why go there if you're healthy?Avoid Flying if you can – It’s my belief that it’s the recycling of the air within the cabin of airplanes that create more chances of infection of the flu or swine flu than staying at your destination (but that’s my take).The swine flu scare is based on money, not truth. According the the World Health Organization, there have been 331 reported cases in 11 countries and only 9 deaths, ALL of which were in Mexico (where I suspect their immune systems are a little less than optimum).What scares me the most is that this swine[...]

Listed as a limited time offer, their body makeover beta is based on an award winning program that was used on the Extreme Makeover show. It seems to be based on Alisa Daglio’s work with her 6 week body makeover DVD, but I haven’t confirmed that.Tools To Life is more than just the BODY makeover though.Their many coaches help you in areas such as getting a job, optimal health, living green and quitting smoking to name a few.All 100% free.It truly is a labor of love.The entire team is lending their time to give back to the community.

2009-01-18T13:28:18.270-07:00By Tom Venutowww.BurnTheFatbook.comIt’s 2009. Your old excuses for not getting in shape won’t work. As Dr. Evil (Austin Powers) said, ZIP IT! I don’t want to hear them anymore! Read em’, then haul your excuseless butt to the gym!1. I have no time.According to a story in a recent issue of Men’s Health magazine, Barack Obama works out for 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Obama doesn’t just play basketball either. Our new president stays fit to lead with cardio and weight lifting. He also says he wishes he could train 90 minutes a day. Have you ever seen what the daily schedule of a U.S. president looks like? If the busiest man in the world can train every day for 45 minutes a day, then what’s your excuse? ZIP IT! You ain’t got one!2. It’s too expensive.Getting in shape certainly is expensive… if you keep wasting hundreds of dollars, month after month on worthless “miracle” weight loss pills, internal cleansing gimmicks and “magic” potions that all claim to make you slim. Deceptive advertising and slick marketing for bogus diet aids is more rampant than ever. 2008 was the year of thewu-long tea scam, the acai berry scam, and, of course, the ubiquitous “cleansing” and “detox” gimmicks . Unless you put on your critical thinking cap and learn to investigate before you invest, then you’ll get scammed by 2009’s flavor of the year as well. Your quest for those elusive “6-pack” abs will not only continue to be expensive, you’ll go broke. Walking, jogging, calisthenics and body weight exercises are FREE. If you want to know what’s really expensive, tally up the cost of legitimate expenses like natural food, gym memberships, fitness education, dumbbells and so on, and compare that to your doctor’s bill when you’re sick.3. No one will support me.Experts on social influence say your income will be approximately equal to the average of your 5 closest friends. Not only do I think that’s pretty darn accurate, I also believe that your health is your greatest wealth, and your physical condition will be about equal to the average of your 5 closest friends. It’s a real challenge to stay positive, focused and active when you’re surrounded by critical people and negative influences. However, in 2009, lack of support is no longer a valid excuse. Online social networking is exploding (check outTwitter and Facebook ) and more IN PERSON friendships and associations are being made from an internet connection than ever before. Training buddies can be found online. Connect with them. Mentors and coaches are easily found online. Hire them. Support forums have been around for years. Use them. No support from your current friends? Stop whining, start reaching out and go make new ones. In 2009, support partners and new friends are just a click away.4. I can’t lose weight because of my genetics.The marvels of modern medical and biological research are astonishing. Our top scientists have mapped the human genome! In the past few years, numerous genes linked to obesity have been discovered. However, the obesity epidemic we’re facing today has only developed over the past 50 years and genetic mutations that lead to serious obesity are extremely rare. Genetic predisposition only means that you have a tendency. It’s when the genetics meet lifestyle and environment that the genes express themselves. If you have a family history of heart disease, is it smart to smoke, eat junk, be a stressed-out, type-A maniac[...]

New research conducted in the UK reveals that Coca-Cola's "Fanta" orange drinks contained 300 times more pesticides than the legal limit allowed in bottled water.
The average level of the total pesticide contamination of the British drinks was 17.4 parts per billion - 34.6 times the EU maximum residue level for water.
2008-12-06T18:53:05.163-07:00Raffles Hotel SingaporeAfter taking most of the summer off for camping, backpacking and my trip to Mt Everest, I'm finally back at it again. This photo was taken on the second floor of the Raffles Hotel in Singapore where the Singapore Sling was invented. They charge $27 for a single Singapore Sling and we had two, so $54 for two drinks. The ONLY reason I did that was because it was where they were invented. Been there and done that now, so moving on. Darlene and I spent the day out and about visiting the Merlion on the harbor, the Raffles Hotel, Clark Quay and various other sights around Singapore.I successfully made it to Mt Everest Base camp at 5400 M on Oct 13th after 8 grueling days climbing from Lukla. What an experience, holy shit. I can't begin to tell you. I'm saving the photos and the trip log for a very special release coming very soon.You see, I've been working on a re-design of this website for quite some time, but yet to actually make it available to the public. I've hesitated in doing an new blog posts because I wanted to use the new blog instead, but because of travels and other delays, that never happened either. I realized that I should at least let everyone know what's happening.So the Mt Everest trip log and photos will not be released just yet, but soon enough.In the mean time, here are a few more photo's to share with you.First is a photo of Dar and I on the beach at sunset. This is in Koh Samui Thailand, on the west side of the island one night after a day of scooting around on a scooter.Koh Samui SunsetAnd this final picture was taken after Israel from Fat Man Unleashed sent me a t-shirt with his website logo on it. Israel, if you're reading this, I have a very very special treat for you, but it'll have to wait a bit until I release it. I'm itching to tell you, but it'll have to be a surprise. In the mean time, a photo of me from early this summer with my sledge after I was doing some sledgehammer work on the tractor tire.Sledgehammer Training and FMUI did the Mt Everest Base camp trek with 5 of the people I climbed Kilimanjaro with back in 2006. Darlene doesn't like climbing, so she stayed home for another 3 weeks. We were joined by another Canadian for the trek, along with 4 from Australia and 5 from the UK, including one fellow just beginning his year long trip around the world. Great bloke.I spent 8 days going UP towards Base camp, and 4 coming down, along with 2 days prior and 2 days post in Kathmandu. After leaving Nepal, Darlene joined up with me in Bangkok where we then flew to the island of Koh Samui and spent 4 days. From there we next went to Singapore and stayed with my sister for 5 days, then on to Kuala Lumpu Malaysia for 2 days, simply to go up to the observation deck of the Petronas Towers. Then we went back to Thailand and spent 6 more days at a Thai cooking school with Koy and her family. Check out River Home Stay Thai Cooking School in Bangkok for excellent accommodations and wonderful Thai food.Petronas TowersThe Petronas towers are the worlds tallest twin towers and the bridge is at the 41st and 42nd floors.The new blog design will be released very soon now that I'm back in Canada. I'm hoping to have it out for the new year. Might even wait until Jan 1 for that matter, just for fun. Until then, I'll be publishing new content into it, so that it's ready for release, but still drop the odd bit of health news or fat[...]
