Treat or meal? Rethink nutrition!

So after a month of eating clean, Scott and I decided to go out for a slice of pizza. It was SO good! Indescribably good, I even added more parmesan cheese to soak up the oil that was floating on top, soooo good! Then we realized why it was so good, we had not had pizza in over two years. What an incredible treat! Then it hit me, this is exactly where the developed world has gone wrong. Things that should be occasional treats have become everyday meals for most people. Pizza is a treat. Cheeseburgers are a treat. Enchiladas...

Scoobys 30 years of muscular growth

I should have done this ages ago but it was very time consuming to dig up all these photos. Today people have Facebook timelines to pull photos off from, I had old fashioned paper photo albums and a few old directories of digital photos from old crashed Microsoft Vista machine. Anyway, took me half a day but I was able to dig up enough shirtless photos to show my bodybuilding progress thru my 30 years of bodybuilding. A couple of observations are in order here. The first photo was taken about a year after I had started messing around with...

Scooby’s European Tour

I would like to once again thank everyone who made my European trip in July so memorable!  Many of you came very long distances to meet me, share your stories, and to give me some of the most awesome gifts ever!  Sometimes I start to wonder if anyone is watching to my videos. Sometimes I wonder if my videos are making any difference in peoples lives. The negativity of the internet can sometimes even get a naturally optimistic and happy person like me down. Sometimes I wonder if its worth the effort but meeting all you people and hearing first...

Depressed? Eat Clean!

So we already know that exercise helps improve mood, even as little as 10 minutes walking a day has been shown to improve mood, now we have some indication that nutrition plays a role in depression also! Very interesting research: A Diet Rich In Fruits And Veggies Could Help Ward Off Depression Those who ate clean (fruits, vegetables, nuts, unprocessed foods) were less likely to be depressed than those who ate traditional processed food diets. Research always presents more questions than it answers though. My first thought about this research was that yes, people who are focused on their health are...

Nicole Arbour and Fat Shaming

On the one hand, I don't agree with fat shaming tactics employed by Nicole Arbour in her video "Dear Fat People" but the fact that a bunch of obese people who were offended could silence her, even for a moment, was tragic.  Shame on YouTube for letting the angry masses trump the right of free speech.   I personally dont think that it does any good at all to shame people who are overweight.  I agree with Nicole Arbour's sentiments, just not her method.   I agree with Nicole completely that telling obese people that they are poor victims of the obesity...

How Zyzz Died

Sanitizing the cause of Zyzz' death does nothing to honor him.  Zyzz is hero to a generation and rightly so, the only other somewhat comparable story I can think of is Arnold Schwarzenegger. I get VERY tired of this, people telling me "how Zyzz died". We do not have a cornorner's report, a toxicology report, or any other reliable information. All we have is a press release from the family.  The cause of death is very commonly white washed and sanitized to provide comfort to the family. Please stop telling me "how Zyzz died" because nobody other than the family knows,...
