Bad Bodybuilding Advice

I received an email from a guy who had been getting most of his fitness advice on a popular bodybuilding site. While there are some bodybuilders that give good advice, most of them rehash a lot of garbage fitness myths that can get you in trouble.

How Much Fat Is In Fat

I got a question the other day about cooking oils and it's been asked a few times before, so I thought I'd answer. Keep in mind I'm a physician, not a chef, although I can wrangle pretty well at the stove.

Yesterday, I became aware of a hot new diet program called "AFD." Now, I don't need it, because I've already lost 60 pounds the old fashioned way, by putting less food in my mouth than I used to, getting some daily exercise, and taking some of my own brand of supplements.

I was in Florida yesterday, where the sun is hot and the beer is cold. You couldn't ask for a better combination than that, although I have so many things to do that beer can't be on the agenda until very late in the day.

I heard this story last week and was going to write about it, but then, I got busy and it slipped my mind for a couple of days. I was looking for something else entirely on the internet, when it popped up again. I thought I had better write about it, while it was fresh in my mind. Almost everyone I know has an airline story about sitting next to a "Lardassian," a turn of phrase coined by a friend of mine called The Big Kahuna. He travels quite a lot and has had a number of instances where the spillover has been quite unpleasant.
If you're a television watcher, you know that you are going to see at least a half dozen commercials every night, selling drugs to deal with depression. In one two-hour segment last week, I counted seven spots for depression, five for ED and two for arthritis. In most cases, there's a lot of blue sky being sold.
I had to field a few line drives to the hot corner (third base) yesterday, after I wrote about Michelle Obama’s plan to end childhood obesity, to which she no doubt knows the answer, since she’s an attorney, hospital administrator and spokesperson. And of course, there is that all important Task Force, waiting to be appointed by the President.

The Obama Weight Loss Program

I was up early this morning, watching one of the early morning talk fests and Michelle Obama was being glorified (I mean interviewed), by what’s her name… Robin Roberts, who cooed and gushed at everything coming out of Michelle’s mouth.
Back a few years ago, some cracks started forming in the giant shield wielded against cholesterol, which we were told was our mortal enemy, and had to be stopped at any cost. Just to give you an idea of how big that shield is, let me tell you that anti-cholesterol agents, or statins, bring in around 20+ billion dollars a year. Two examples of those type of drugs are Lipitor, or Crestor. There are many others, and 16 million Americans now take statins.

How Much Coffee Is Too Much

Today, I thought I'd talk a bit about something Americans hold near and dear, and it isn't Obama, death, or taxes. I thought I'd write about this because of something someone told me yesterday, about someone I know pretty well, who is having a bit of a rough time communicating with his staff, particularly as it gets later in the day.
