Pasta is healthy, right?

No wonder the world is obese! I rarely have pasta, as in, about once a year. Why? Because I know that it is a cheat meal when the rest of the world considers it a normal meal. Well, thats the reason I am lean and they are obese! Its not "slow metabolism", its bad food choices. I know I am going to get a lot of angry people by saying this but pasta is junk simple carbs. I dont care how "whole grain" you claim your pasta is, its still simple junk carbs. If you want quality carbs then eat...

Meet Scooby in Sydney, today, Saturday February 27

.. at 10am Botanic Gardens Cafe in the Royal Botanical Gardens. I want to first thank everyone who came to yesterdays meet and greet at the top of the pylon of the Sydney Harbor Bridge. Not only was it in the middle of a work day but it also cost a lot of money to get in. I know I have said this before, but its events like this that give me the motivation to keep doing videos when I realize that I am still having a positive influence in peoples lives. I love doing videos but I sometimes start...

Cheap suspension trainer from ALDI!

So, I would rather have you make your DIY suspension trainer but some folks do not have access to the materials used to make my $7 DIY suspension trainer.  A Sweat4health member in the UK passed this on to me, ALDI stores will be having a suspension trainer available for £12.99 which is a crazy bargain.  Its available starting the 28th of February.  I have no affiliation with ALDI stores other than fond memories from 1990 and 1991 when I lived in Muenchen and did most of my shopping there.  Suspension trainers are AWESOME for home gyms and for those who...

DIY airline sleeping headrest for tall people

If you are tall, sleeping is next to impossible in a normal airline seat because there is nothing to rest your head against. A normal airline seat comes barely to the top of my shoulders. Solution? Three 1/4" lightweight plywood panels, each 16" x 10". The panels overlap by 5" and at each joint have four holes drilled to accomodate cable ties. Backrest stores easily in a backpack and does not arouse TSA scrutiny as a large board would. When on the plane, cable tie the sections together - walla, a head rest that allows you to sleep!!!!! Don't forget...

Endurance cardio might make you smarter!

Its no secret that I think cardio is important because I preach this all the time. I also have consistently pushed the importance of steady state, endurance cardio over interval training and now I have an even greater reason to do so! It has been known for quite a long time that exercise causes the creation of new neurons in the all important hippocampus area of the brain which is why exercise has been stressed for older people wanting to prevent a decline in mental capabilities with age. Research published in the Journal of Physiology this week titled "Physical exercise...

Why I Hate The Superbowl

I know it is un-American to admit this but I hate everything about the superbowl and what it says about our country. Obesity related diseases are killing off our citizens at a record breaking pace but people who 'dont have time' to workout somehow find the time for a 6 hour superbowl party. Then the culinary aspect of the superbowl. Many of these obese folks who dont have time to workout and 'cant afford' to eat healthy somehow find hundreds of dollars to throw a superbowl party or to  buy tickets to the game.  What can be more American than...
