Monetization and whiny, entitled YouTube Stars

You may have heard lots of whining from YouTube Fitness Trainers about the changes to the monetization policy - Entitled millennials who think the world owes them everything. Lets cover a few points. You do not have some god given right to make tens of thousands of dollars for a clever video that it took you 3 minutes to make - get a REAL JOB and WORK like everyone else. YouTube is a business and its their responsibility to their shareholders to maximize profit. This is a free market, supply and demand determines prices. There are simply too many YouTube fitness...

“Jews will not replace us!”

jews-will-not-replace-us

In Charlottesville, Virginia the White supremacists chanted "Jews will not replace us" - well, honestly we Jews don't WANT to replace you! White supremacists are white males disillusioned with the system, and rightfully so as it has failed them. They are often blue collar, unemployed or under employed, and have little education beyond high school. The demise of the middle class has hit this group hard because good paying blue collar jobs are basically gone. White supremacists lash out at Jews, blacks, and immigrants which is misdirected anger. We Jews are not interested in replacing white supremacists flipping burgers at...

The three biggest financial mistakes that young adults make

three biggest financial mistakes young adults make

The three biggest financial mistakes that young adults make are: not paying credit cards off in full every month buying a car and going in debt for a college education (unless for a degree that GUARANTEES a high paying job). In my last post about my bike renovation where I mentioned that the true cost of car ownership was about $15000/year, a lot of people clearly do not understand how to calculate true cost. The cost of ownership is NOT just gas and oil changes. You have to add insurance, maintenance AND depreciation because the car will need replacing. If...

Only in America – Eclipse causes school closures

total-solar-eclipse-schools-close

This is crazy, only in America would schools shut down on the best day of the century to teach kids about science. Liability concerns have caused many school districts across the nation to cancel school because of the possibility that kids might harm their eyes even with glasses on. Its harder than ever to get kids interested in science so exciting moments like this total solar eclipse should be embraced and used as teaching moments. Instead of kids being able to watch the eclipse with safe teacher supervision and proper eclipse glasses, many kids will be left home unsupervised free...

How To Grocery Shop – Bodybuilding

how-to-shop-bodybuilder

There are thousands of videos and web pages about how to shop and what to buy if you are an athlete or bodybuilder. The problem they all have is that they are general advice, not specific advice. They videos and web pages tend to just be laundry lists of clean foods. Although this is useful as an educational exercise for nutritional newbies, it still is of no help in an actual shopping trip. What you need is to buy all the things you need to eat healthy, high protein meals all week. Just because Jay Cutler who weighs 280 pounds...

Keto (ketogenic) Meal Plans

keto-nutrition-bodybuilding-meal-plan

Keto is awesome for cutting which is why so many bodybuilders use it. You can maintain a caloric deficit day after day without ever getting hungry. One of the many reasons that keto and low-carb nutritional plans are so effective for fat loss is that after a few weeks of keto, even people like myself who have intense sugar cravings or carb cravings find that they disappear. Without the cravings for simple carbs, its very easy to keep a consistent caloric deficit that is required for fat loss. Read all about keto for bodybuilders Make your own keto meal plan...

Why do I toss the yolks?

Quick-Low-Carb-Meal

I get questions all the time about why I throw out the egg yolks when they are "good for me".  Yes, we now know that eating dietary cholesterol does not increase blood cholesterol which in turn leads to heart disease.  Yes, I know that yolks have lots of vitamins and minerals which is why I eat one yolk a day in addition to the 20 egg whites.  We buy about 9 dozen organic eggs a week and all the yolks go down the garbage disposal.  For those saying that its a waste of food, please read this. For those who think...

Jarrow ruins chocolate whey protein

Jarrow-chocolate-protein-powder-ruined

Jarrow chocolate whey protein powder has resistant maltodextrin and Luo Han Guo which are "100% natural" but so is mold and I dont want that in my whey either. There is a good reason that I always recommend getting unflavored protein powder and adding your own flavors and sweeteners, this is a great example.  Two years ago when I wrote Top 5 Best Protein Powders, Jarrow's chocolate formulation was fine: just whey, cocoa powder, and stevia.  Now they have ruined it.  LOL!  They claim its "100% Natural".  Last time I checked natural products cannot be trademarked, take a look at the list of ingredients.  By...

DNA analysis for fitness

DNA-analysis

Let me save you $200 on your DNA analysis for fitness and tell you what you need to know to get healthy, gain muscle, and get stronger. The latest expensive trend is people getting their DNA analyzed for fitness and people who do these expensive tests swear by them. I should start selling "DNA Test Kits" for fitness myself to cash in on these people who have far too much money. After two weeks of "analysis" each customer would get the following "DNA results": You lack the enzyme to effectively metabolize alcohol, avoid alcohol. You have a genetic defect which hinders...

DEXA scans, x-rays, and cancer

DEXA-SCAN-BODYBUILDER-BODY-FAT-Radiation

There is what I consider to be an alarming trend of people running to get DEXA scans to get their bodyfat measured "accurately", more about why I quote the world accurately later.   People tend to dismiss the radiation of a DEXA scan as being "less than a dental x-ray", well, I even limit dental x-rays to a  bare minimum.  There is a difference too, an occasional dental x-ray is important for health because one needs healthy teeth to be able to eat a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables and without a healthy diet, the rest of the...
