Gain 30 pounds muscle in just six months!

Gain 30 pounds muscle in just six months! How can you gain 30 pounds muscle in 6 months? You cant! Anyone telling you that you can is either a drug dealer, which is illegal, or they are lying to you just to get your money which isn't very nice.  Several people have ended up in my Fitness Hall of Shame for this very reason. Building muscle is a very slow process, period.  Unless you are a newcomer to weightlifting or a teen in puberty, adding 10 pounds of muscle a year is about all you can expect. Many people seem to...

Thanks! – Ryan Seacrest YouTube Fitness Contest

Really appreciate the votes in Ryan Seacrest's YouTube Fitness Channel contest!  Honestly, I have to say that when I first heard about it, I just brushed it off as yet another popularity contest that would be won by the person with the biggest marketing budget  and the most Facebook Fans that they could badger into voting for them.   I have to say though that I actually have found this contest *has* meant a lot to me.  I have discovered that I have a lot more support that I realized. I do fitness stuff because its my passion, not because its...

I know to a lot of you, getting in shape means getting huge and ripped but please reconsider.  I have seen too many people who look as good as the GymShark crew but wheeze like an old man trying to climb one...

Fat, villain or hero?

So whats going on? Is fat making you healthy or killing you? Like a number of things in medicine, this one is flip flopping. Now we have medical professionals with passionately strong, and polar opposite, beliefs on the subject of dietary fat and saturated fat Back in the 1950's, it was so simple. Doctor Ancel Benjamin Keys from the University of Minnesota did his famous "seven country chart" showing that countries with lower fat consumption had less mortality from heart disease than countries which consumed more fat and they made a really nice curve. After this, saturated fat became public...

Farting can save your life!

Passing gas can save your life!  There is such a social tabu on farting that people are willing to slowly kill themselves in order to be socially acceptable.  A simple "Quack!" at a social gathering completely disrupts the conversational flow as full grown adults revert to giggling teenagers.

If you are *not* farting, shame on you, eat more fiber because it could save your life.  Fibrous foods are the most common culprit in gas production so many people avoid them - things like vegetables, fruits and legumes. Trouble is, those are the precise...

Obese people:  Stop making excuses.  In my opinion, unless you have a mental illness you CAN get lean and fit without pills or surgery.  You don't have a...
