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 [...]

Can you eat carbs and still lose weight?

March 26, 2011

This is a guest post by Debbie Morgan. As we transition into the spring, one thing that is on many people’s minds is losing a few of the pounds that they picked up in the winter months, and getting into “bathing suit shape.” Hopefully, that New Year’s resolution of eating right and going to the [...]


BMI Leads to Unrealistic Goals?

March 7, 2010
Muhammed Lawal

Enough has been written about the shortcomings of using Body Mass Index (BMI) to gauge fitness levels and I’m not going to rehash that here. If you want to learn more about the history of BMI as well as some of the concerns about it, check out the BMI article on Wikipedia. I do think [...]


Jennifer Love Hewitt - Maybe Not So Inspiring After All?

December 11, 2007

So I was planning on keeping mum on here about Jennifer Love Hewitt.  I really was. For those of you living in a cave who haven’t yet heard about this, Jennifer has been fighting back against some (in some people’s opinion, not mine) unflattering photos taken of her while on vacation. Here is what she [...]


Still Looking For That First Compliment

December 7, 2007

I’ve written before how in 2001 I lost 40 pounds on Atkins and how good it felt to get compliments from people about my weight loss.  For some reason I can’t explain, shortly after I started getting the compliments I went on a weight gain slide that lasted until this last August when I started [...]


My Goal Weight

December 4, 2007

In a comment here yesterday John asked, “So what is your ultimate goal weight?” The easy answer is 185, down from 295 and a total loss of 110 pounds.  At 267 I am a quarter of my way to that goal. But that’s my perspective from the start of the diet, I expect it might [...]


London Observations

November 28, 2007

I lived in South Africa for a year when I was ten.  On the way home we first stopped in Australia for a month and I’ll never forget the feeling I got seeing those big American cars driving around Melbourne after a year of not seeing them in South Africa. I felt a little of [...]


The 4-Hour Body?

November 16, 2007

Thinner, bigger, faster, stronger… which 150 pages will you read? Is it possible to: Reach your genetic potential in 6 months? Sleep 2 hours per day and perform better than on 8 hours? Lose more fat than a marathoner by bingeing? Indeed, and much more. This is not just another diet and fitness book. I [...]
