Why Minding Your Own Business is Healthy

A study must show that minding your own business is good for your health. I don’t know if there is scientific evidence to back up this theory of mine, but I’m sure at one point there was a study conducted about this. There are studies done about everything. Through an unrelated series of events, it [...]

How Celebs Keep The Weight Off

I rarely have any sympathy for celebrities who whine about their difficult lives. NO TIME? How about all the “real life” moms and dads out there who are juggling jobs, parenthood and everyday responsibilities without the help of managers, nannies and drivers? NO PRIVACY? Puh-lease. You know you crave the spotlight. (I’m talking to you [...]

Tide Turners: Penn State Nittany Lions Take on Alabama, the National Champs

Stephfon Green is fast. Let me re-phrase that, the Penn State Junior running back is Ferrari Fast. Combine that with the dynamic running vision he possesses and he can make a defense pay in the blink of an eye. With rumors swirling around Happy Valley of a sub 4.3 40 yard time for Green, defensive [...]

What Have We Done to our Women?

Being a woman isn’t always an easy job. On top of taking care of kids, managing a household and working a full-time job there is great pressure to have a look that society finds acceptable. At times, women may not only feel the pressure from the opposite sex, but from other women as well. It [...]

What Would You Give Up?

OK. So there is this new study out there that was conducted through Nutrisystem by using their Diet Index. It proves that over 50 percent of women would rather give up sex for the summer than gain 10 pounds. Interesting. The study also includes men, and, shockingly, some guys said they’d do the same. Did [...]

Where Were You on 9/11? Remembering September 11th, 2001

Forget about your weight, your fat or how you look for a second today and take some time to remember those that were lost 8 years ago. Where were you on 9/11? I remember I was in bed. I was still a college kid and had class that afternoon so I decided to sleep in. [...]

A Tip or Two for Motivation…

It is no secret that getting motivated to work out is sometimes as easy as threading a camel through the eye of a needle. We all have things going on: errands to run, dinners to cook; and fitting a workout into the schedule can be nearly impossible. But if you find something that you enjoy [...]

America is in a Depression but Whose Fault is that?

You may have just read the title to this blog and are left wondering “What does this have to do with weight loss?” Well my answer to that question is, “It has everything to do with it!” Did you know that 2/3 of America is considered obese? Which is not surprising being that we no longer have to fight, hunt, and kill to get our food. No not at all, we live in a time of fast food and microwaves. It’s sad to say but we as humans try to find the easiest and fastest but yet not so beneficial way to do everything.

Super Size My Superman and Batman, Fat Super Heroes to the Rescue

I thought about the comics and the physiques the super heroes were depicted has having. None of the superheroes were fat! This perplexed me. If Superman was so omnipotent why couldn’t he get away with a lil’ bulge? Belly fat would not have diminished his status. Superman’s powers were so extraordinary even in the realm of super heroes that he could get away with being out of shape.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Frank Cruz a former fat man who’s almost completely unleashed. Those cold chains of confinement are weakening little by little.

A Healthy Body Equals a Healthy Mind…That Goes For Kids Too!

It’s no secret to anyone with a pair of eyes that America is in the middle of an obesity epidemic. Our “bigger is better” culture has created a nation of people who are overweight, and out of shape. At some point in the very near future, inactivity and poor diet will pass smoking as the [...]

Be Careful When Worshiping the Sun
