The Myth of Exercise?

Time Cover

(This was sent to Time Magazine regarding the cover article dated August 17th, 2009)

I am writing to address the Time magazine front cover article “The Myth about exercise” by John Cloud.

Many if not most of the people who exercise do so for the purpose weight loss or weight maintenance.  Therefore, my first issue is that the title of the article makes the suggestion that exercising is not well worth the effort. Since your article implies that exercise will not assist in the weight loss process it may preclude some people to participate in this healthy practice despite your caveat on the cover stating: “of course it’s good for you.”

How the Food industry deceives you!

My wife constantly calls me a conspiracy
theorist. My ego is not so fragile that I need

This is a five part series and well worth

Let me know your thoughts

Be smarter

Here is a clip from a documentary that getting
a lot of buzz. It’s called bigger, stronger, faster.
It’s all about the facade of building the American
dream body and how much of is only chemical,
smoke, mirrors and lies.

I’m not trying to say that you can’t have the body of
your dreams. Just make sure that it’s your dreams
and not somebody else’s. I know all of the hard work
necessary to build a great physique. I have also grown
to know that life is about balance, enjoyment and
love.

Can you have it all? Possibly. I say to just keep in
mind that it will take work and sacrifice. And while
you’re working and sacrificing take time to enjoy it.

The Don Key Diet


I stumbled on this picture and almost fell out of my chair. Yes, this is health and weight loss advice taken literally. But it really comes down to this for the most part. Yes, to lose some weight and get in shape one of the first steps is to ‘GET YOUR ASS OUT OF THE REFRIGERATOR!’

If you are struggling now because you pu t a few Summer pounds on yes it may be time to stop eating for three. So if your ass has gotten bigger get it out of the fridge.
