Things I’ve Learned About Losing Weight, Diets and Exercise…

Can cardiovascular exercise can prolong one’s life?
Not really. Your heart is only good for so many beats and that’s it. Don’t waste it on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; it’s like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster.

Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
No. Let’s take a look at this question with logistical efficiencies in mind. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? (Say it together now.) Vegetables. Ergo, a steak is nothing more than a more efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system.

Need grain? Eat chicken.

A pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.

Is beer or wine bad for me?
This goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. We all know that beer and wine are not animal and they are not on the endangered species list. So have a burger and a beer and enjoy your liquid vegetables.

How can I calculate my body to fat ratio?
Well, if you have a body and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies your ratio is two to one, etc.

What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
Nope. “No Pain Is Good…”

If I stop smoking, will I live longer?
Nope. Smoking is a sign of individual statement and peace of mind. If you stop, you’ll probably stress yourself to death in record time.

Aren’t fried foods bad for you?
You’re not listening. Foods are fried in vegetable oil. How could getting more “vegetables” be bad for you?

Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
Are you crazy? When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Is chocolate bad for me?
— No! Cocoa beans are another vegetable and the best feel-good food you can find!

Hope this helps.
