Anyone who’s vaguely online knows that the Internet is a stunning achievement allowing billions of humans access to all sorts of information, from the latest news of the world, information on scientific and technological developments, online finance, or just the ability to stay connected with friends and family across the world.  And we also knowContinue reading “Bad Habits #19 – Various Brain Melting Diet Fads I’ve Found on The Internet”

Good Habits #19 – Casseroles: How To Eat Well By Turning Into Your Mother. Or Your Aunt. Or Your Grandmother

One of the most common June Cleaveresque stereotypes I encountered growing up, in real life and on TV, was a fifties housewife serving a casserole.  Well okay, the baking cookies and brownies thing is a bigger stereotype, but the casserole thing was still a thing.  I know this, because many of my relatives, like myContinue reading “Good Habits #19 – Casseroles: How To Eat Well By Turning Into Your Mother.

Bad Habits #18 – 24 Other People’s Bad Habits, A Blatantly Clickbaity Listicle

So, I’ve been writing this blog off and on for roughly two and a half years.  Or is it three and a half years?  Sometimes I lose track because that year where we all hid under the bed feels like it doesn’t count. You know the one I mean. The one dominated by the All-PowerfulContinue reading “Bad Habits #18 – 24 Other People’s Bad Habits, A Blatantly Clickbaity Listicle”

Good Habits #18 – Why Cavemen Were Rarely Obese

I’ve occasionally researched the various diet fads out there, including the Keto diet (whose acolytes I regularly pan, just to be irritating), the Carnivore diet (who get the same mistreatment as the Keto types, for the same reason), and the Vegan diet (a diet that is a total non-starter for me). My own diet isContinue reading “Good Habits #18 – Why Cavemen Were Rarely Obese”

Bad Habits #17 – We’re Already In a Zombie Apocalypse, And It’s Making Us Fatter

When I was growing up, I was the guy who fell asleep in the back of the class.  This started as early as thirteen years old or so.  And it wasn’t the result of narcolepsy or any other sleep condition.  It was initially because I would often stay up late reading and would go toContinue reading “Bad Habits #17 – We’re Already In a Zombie Apocalypse, And It’s Making Us Fatter”

Good Habits #17 – Clean Food For People Who Don’t Like To Bathe

Ever go into a restaurant and see that the guy seated at the table next to you has more body hair than all the people at your table combined?  And that’s just on his face and under his arms?  The type of place where everyone seems to have a dog under the table, tattoos inContinue reading “Good Habits #17 – Clean Food For People Who Don’t Like To Bathe”

How Game of Thrones Made Me Start Losing Weight

Like many people, my wife and I were fond of Game of Thrones.  Well, I was fond of it.  My wife … was full fangirl.  The “searching the internet and watching all of the YouTube videos describing the history of Westeros” type of fangirl.  The “if Kit Harrington stopped by and proposed marriage, she wouldContinue reading “How Game of Thrones Made Me Start Losing Weight”

Bad Habits #16 – Adult Baby Food

I spend a lot of time trashing those who partake of the Ketogenic and Carnivore diets.  Good naturedly, of course.  Many of the people I follow and interact with on social media partake of these and other low-carb diets.  But for some reason I feel the urge to occasionally mock their fetishistic worship of thingsContinue reading “Bad Habits #16 – Adult Baby Food”

Good Habits #16 – The More You Toot, The Better You Feel

Nearly eight years ago, I began an arduous, difficult, and life changing journey filled with struggle and suffering, but also great joy and rewards.  No, I’m not talking about my “Weight Loss Journey” (an annoying phrase that I hate with a passion, but seem to repeat constantly because of masochism), I’m talking about marriage.  AndContinue reading “Good Habits #16 – The More You Toot, The Better You Feel”

Bad Habits #14 – Return of The Jelly (Belly)

So I’ve noticed that I put a little weight back on recently.  I can feel the jealous people at the office giving me gloating glances when my back is turned.  I know they snicker that my miraculous weight loss, which made all of them feel inadequate, is apparently reversing.  Or at least I would ifContinue reading “Bad Habits #14 – Return of The Jelly (Belly)”
