Food That Kills - Full Documentary

Overall, a good presentation. Don't eat tofu though. Tempeh is a safer bet. I'm not sold on the vegan diet either. It can be done, but I am under the impression that vitamin b12 is not available without supplementation or dairy. I will have to research that more.

[06/03/13]   Occasionally, as a fitness professional, you have to tell someone, "You don't know what the hell you're talking about." People don't always like that. Well if you want to be an expert at something, become an expert. Don't just pick fights with people who know more than you do. That's a good way to look like a fool.

Occupy the FDA

For farmers in the eastern Indian state of Chhattisgarh it is cheaper than pesticides and gets the job done just as well. The product? Pepsi or Coca-Cola. Agricultural scientists give them some backing - they say the high sugar content of the drinks can make them effective in combating pests.

Unsurprisingly, Pepsi and Coca-Cola strongly disagree, saying there is nothing in the drinks that can be used in pest control. READ MORE : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/3977351.stm

Terrifying Infographic on the Health Dangers of Sitting

Unusual Facts

McDonald's salads are actually more fattening than their burgers.

Detail : You may think you are eating to be kind to your waistline - but think again.

The McDonald's Caesar salad, to be launched this month amid concern over spiralling obesity levels, is more fattening than the burger.

In its biggest menu revolution in 30 years, the restaurant chain will introduce the grilled chicken salad at 1,235 of its branches with a choice of Caesar dressing, or the lighter option of a drizzle of balsamic.

However, anyone hoping the salad option will help battle the bulge should read the nutritional information on the McDonald's website.

It shows that ditching the burger for a salad is no good for slimmers.

For with dressing and croutons it contains 425 calories and 21.4g of fat, compared with the 253 calories and 7.7g of fat in the standard burger.

Adding a portion of fries to your burger brings the calorie count to 459 - still less fatty than the salad at 16.7g.

Super-sized portions ditched

Last month McDonald's announced it will ditch its super-size portion of fries and soft drinks at British outlets by the end of the year, amid a backlash against firms blamed for a an "obesity epidemic".

Medical experts have drawn a direct link between increasing obesity and giant portions of everything from fast food to chocolate bars and crisps.

A super-size portion of fries at McDonald's contains 486 calories, more than double the 206 calories in a regular serving.

McDonald's said of its salad that without the creamy dressing and croutons, the fat falls away and the less calorific balsamic vinegar dressing contains just 2g of fat.

A spokeswoman added: "Free of dressing a chicken salad has only 222 calories. It's the Italian cheese that makes the difference".

Food Babe Investigates: Is Subway Real Food? - 100 Days of Real Food

I always figured Subway was pretty decent in terms of healthy food choices. I stand corrected:


100daysofrealfood.com Subway is the single largest chain restaurant in the world. That means you’ve probably eaten there at some point in your lifetime and if you are like me could possibly have 10 of these restaurants within a 1 mile radius of your house.

Portion control will save you some work this post-holiday season. My advice is to get Mynetdiary on your phone and track your calories as you go.

You'd better start now! http://walking.about.com/library/cal/blthanksgivingcalories.htm

[10/04/12]   "The God-loving Saint Francis of Assisi referred to his body as "Brother Donkey" because of its usefulness bbut frequent stubbornness. In 'Saints That Moved The World', Rene Fulop-Miller relates that when Saint Francis was building the church at San Damian, he 'designated his own body to serve him as beast of burden. He lifted the heavy stones, one at a time, and said: 'Now, Brother Donkey, carry it to San Damian.' And when Donkey Body broke down at times under the great burden, driver Frincis would encourage and calm him and sternly he would add: 'Brother Donkey, the Father wills it, we must hurry.' Then Donkey Body would obey...Francis' soul was used to singing when it felt happy....Donkey Body chimed in as best he could. And then a very strange thing happened. Donkey Body and the soul which heard the voice of God became one."

~Paramahamsa Yogananda from his Bhagavhad Gita commentary, "God Talks With Arjuna"
