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”

Exercise #16 – Work Hard, Not Smart

Recently, I commented on how I’ve lost a little ground in my “Weight Loss Journey.” And yes, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. That insufferable, trendy phrase probably emerged from the irritating part of the Internet where people look way happier than they are in real life (Instagram), or that partContinue reading “Exercise #16 – Work Hard, Not Smart”

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)”

Good Habits #15 – Cubans Are Healthy, Especially When Libred

Ever since I found my way down to the state once known as the craziest (and now the freest) state in the nation (Florida), I’ve been exposed to a type of food that is ubiquitous in Florida, but not so common in my native Georgia.  A type of food that Desi Arnaz might have stolenContinue reading “Good Habits #15 – Cubans Are Healthy, Especially When Libred”

Exercise #15 – We’re Fat Because They Took Our Jerbs

Ever since I’ve started losing weight, I’ve periodically been looking into what caused Americans to gain so much weight.  Over the past fifty years or so, we’ve, on average, put on something like 40 pounds per person.  Or was it 30?  Or 50?  I forgot.  It’s in that range, and any of those is tooContinue reading “Exercise #15 – We’re Fat Because They Took Our Jerbs”

Love Your Body Like You Love Children. Wait, Not Like That.

One of the more bizarre (and that’s saying something) debates I witness online is over the subject of “body positivity”.  Mostly because body positivity is one of those bizarre phrases that can mean different things to different people and therefore doesn’t really mean anything. It’s not necessarily a bad thing.  When I was growing up,Continue reading “Love Your Body Like You Love Children. Wait, Not Like That.”

Bad Habits #14 – Avoid The New Year’s Fitness Blitzkrieg

There are a few times of year that people put unbelievably insufferable things on their social media feeds.  Okay that’s…every time of year.  But there are a couple of times where the insufferability hits ungodly peaks.  Such as everyone showing how happy they are at Thanksgiving, but clearly omitting the videos of their crazy unclesContinue reading “Bad Habits #14 – Avoid The New Year’s Fitness Blitzkrieg”
