Great Visualization of Obesity Data

January 22, 2012

I don’t see how you can view this short video illustrating the obesity epidemic in the U.S. and not want to change something. Yes, I recently reviewed a book called The Great Fat Fraud but really the point of that book was the importance of fitness, as opposed to the dangers of obesity. Yet, you [...]

Fat Clothes

As per usual I’ve been doing about everything other than focusing on improving my fitness, although a couple of weeks ago I did strength training every day for the first time in a long time. My back has been sore since. One thing I have been doing well at this “end of summer”* period is [...]

A little post-Christmas, pre-New Years reflecting: When I make peanut butter toast for my kids I spread a very thin dollop of peanut butter on one slice of bread. When I make peanut butter toast for myself I spread as much peanut butter as my knife will hold and I slather on it two slices [...]


Ree Drummond is the Devil - Peanut Butter Pie is Sin

June 13, 2009

One of my favorite weight loss blogs is Escape from Obesity. Lyn is an incredible writer who is prolific in both the quantity and quality of her posts. She always seems to hit the nail on the head for me. I’ve been reading her for some time through RSS but for some reason had not [...]

Eating at a Super Bowl Party

February 4, 2009

photo credit: PinkMoose I was hoping to get this post out a couple of days ago but this week has just been crazy. How about that Super Bowl? Damn, that was a great game. And I say that not just because my wife won the 3rd quarter numbers and I won the final score numbers! [...]
