Bad Habits #13 – How Liberating Italy From Fascism Made America Fat

Since my wife and I live about 30 minutes from the beach, we often spend a Saturday there in the Summer.  Assuming there are no hurricanes.  Or massive algae blooms killing all of the fish and causing them to wash up on the shore.  But assuming we’re not facing meteorological Armageddon or osteichthyan genocide, aContinue reading “Bad Habits #13 – How Liberating Italy From Fascism Made America Fat”

Good Habits #13 – You Can Have A Healthy Lunch Thanks To An English Aristocrat With Bad Habits

So when one works as a CPA, sanity requires that we occasionally step out of the office to escape the mind numbing, soul crushing monotony of wading through things like accounting standards, SEC regulations, DOL regulations, or the dark, fetid morass that is USC Title 26.  Which is the internal revenue code.  Or merely theContinue reading “Good Habits #13 – You Can Have A Healthy Lunch Thanks To An English Aristocrat With Bad Habits”

Exercise #13 – If You Want A Friend (And Less Of A Waist) Get a Dog

One of the things Florida is renowned for (apart from crazy people) is it’s retired population.  And despite the fact that we normally get a bit plumper as we age, the aging Florida Men and Florida Women I see in my neighborhood really don’t appear to suffer from that.  I’ve often been curious how theseContinue reading “Exercise #13 – If You Want A Friend (And Less Of A Waist) Get a Dog”

Bad Habits #12 – It’s a Monk’s Life In The Online Heathbrosphere

I’ve noticed something while spending time on Twitter.  And I know that I should stop spending too much time on Twitter.  It appears to make you angrier, meaner, less happy, and dumber.  Tech geeks figured out Twitter’s impacts the hard way.  They tried to train an AI’s social interactions by putting it on Twitter.  ItContinue reading “Bad Habits #12 – It’s a Monk’s Life In The Online Heathbrosphere”

Good Habits #12 – Spice Up Things In The Kitchen. No, Not Like That.

A while back, I posted a piece about how cooking for yourself can be helpful when losing weight.  But one of the dangers of cooking for yourself is…mediocrity.  My cooking skills have improved, but even now that I can manage to cook things that don’t qualify as Category 1 Toxic Materials on the EPA’s toxicityContinue reading “Good Habits #12 – Spice Up Things In The Kitchen. No, Not Like That.”

Exercise #12 – Weight Loss By Risking Hypothermia

Growing up mostly in Georgia, and now living in Florida, seeing the snow is a rare occurrence.  It might have snowed once every five to ten years in Savannah, and usually only barely.  And snow in Florida would probably drive the Florida Men insane, as they would be convinced that the end of days hadContinue reading “Exercise #12 – Weight Loss By Risking Hypothermia”

Good Habits #11 – How to Obtain Good Health By Setting Your Brain On Fire

Back in 1996 (I’m giving away how old I am again), I was at a friend’s house watching the opening ceremony of the Olympic games.  At some point during the night, one of her vixen girlfriends tricked me into eating a hot pepper.  Since I was always willing to show off (read: make a foolContinue reading “Good Habits #11 – How to Obtain Good Health By Setting Your Brain On Fire”

Exercise #11 – Vive La Resistance

Not long ago, I posted a piece about how I’d finally put aside my skepticism of gyms and started lifting weights.  Once something I sneered at as the pastime of over muscled and under brained bros, I realized that this was a key part of getting myself back into shape.  The fancy term for thisContinue reading “Exercise #11 – Vive La Resistance”

Bad Habits #10 – Cursed Carnal Confections of Corruption And Calamity

I think one reason I was able to continue losing weight during the time when the country was at the mercy of the Creeping Doom From Wuhan was because the temptations of the office were not available to me.  I realize that seems like an incoherent thing to say.  How could there be more temptationsContinue reading “Bad Habits #10 – Cursed Carnal Confections of Corruption And Calamity”

Good Habits #10 – These Are The Things That Try Ketovore’s Souls

In my efforts to expand my knowledge of all things dietary in my pursuit of godlike abs and immortal levels of immunity, I follow a lot of health nuts on social media.  This includes the “normie” doctor types who do weird stuff like…tweet health information that’s backed up by years of empirical data.  But IContinue reading “Good Habits #10 – These Are The Things That Try Ketovore’s Souls”
