Researchers: Diet To Blame For Obesity, Not Lack Of Physical Activity
Lack of physical activity is not to blame for the prevalence of obesity, but rather the wrong diet, report physicians from the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa who published their findings in the “British Journal of Sports Medicine.” However, they emphasized that even regular exercise cannot compensate for poor dietary habits.
Excess consumption of sugar and carbohydrates is mainly responsible for obesity, say the experts. Even 40% of people with a normal BMI will consequently have metabolic abnormalities normally associated with obesity.
But it is problematic that the public firmly believes that development is exclusively due to lack of physical activity. That misconception is due almost exclusively to Read the rest of this entry »

What’s your favorite outdoor cooked food? Barbecue? Grilling? Chicken? Beef? Pork? Fish?
What’s the deal with marinades?
Bunk, or not?
And what’s a “smoke ring” on barbecue?
And what about the red stuff that runs out of beef when it’s cut after cooking – is it blood?

To be honest with you, I’ve hardly had any barbecue at all this season (which begins in the Spring) – and I’ve certainly not cooked any! I think, more than anything, that’s what I really miss… the cooking!
I’ve written about barbecue, the process and procedure, but not extensively.
Typically, when I order barbecue, I like to sample three sides which have traditionally accompanied barbecue. They are slaw, potato salad, and baked beans.
My choice of meat is pulled pork. I enjoy ribs, of course, but pulled pork is my standard. Although, there are times when a sampling of ribs or brisket are available.
Now, as a ‘purist,’ I do not believe that chicken can be barbecued, neither turkey, nor beef.
So there’s my bias.
Of course, I’ve never Read the rest of this entry »

Seems the USDA has “egg on their face.” Maybe it should be in their bellies instead?
First, eggs were bad.
Now, they’re good.
Then coffee was evil.
Now, it’s not.
Next was chocolate.
Too bad… seems now, it’s A-OK!
And for goodness sake! Do NOT under ANY circumstances drink wine, liquor or beer!
But now, it’s okay to have a few drinks.
And heaven help us all… the beef! Where’s the beef!?! You’re surely gonna’ DIE!
Well… maybe not as quickly as we once thought. Beef’s okay.
My friends, beware “Schizophrenic Science”! Particularly dietary-related science!
Remember the “Twinkie Diet“! …Click HERE to read the good news!…

My Thanksgiving this year was unremarkable.
I said jokingly – although with serious intent – that I should’ve gone to the homeless shelter to eat. At least that way I would’ve had some turkey, dressing and traditional food!
The ironic part of it all, was that I bought enough groceries to feed an army: 25 lb turkey, 20 lb ham, 10 lb pork tenderloin, 7 lb of three types sausage, 2 lb slab-cut bacon, mushrooms (shitake, portobello & white), onions, leeks, fresh spinach, cream, genuine maple syrup, pecans, walnuts, tomato paste, salad dressings, cheeses, and much, much more (over $300 worth)! The meat is now residing in the freezer, while the other perishables are in the refrigerator’s cooler drawer.
Perhaps it was my Matthew 22:9 moment. The well-read will recall that is the parable of the feast taught by Jesus Christ, in which the king made ready a feast but the invited guests didn’t show up. So, he commanded his servants to go out into the city streets, highways and byways and bid all to come to the feast.
My roommate is “vegetabletarian,” wasn’t invited anywhere by anyone she knew, and I didn’t get the invite from my folks because they were invited by my brother’s in-laws (Clifford & Jolene) to their place. I thought that was kind’a ass-holey of them, not my folks, to not invite me. I’m the elder of two, have neither spouse nor children, and don’t lead a secret life. Which is to say, C&J and all the gang know that. I guess they gave me the great big “FUCK YOU” this year.
But oh, dear LORD… don’t let ’em think for one moment they might be “dissing” me – their artificially nice world would cave in around them. But know what’s weird? He’s a Baptist-turned-Independent “holiness” preacher.
See what I mean? At least if I ate with the homeless folks, I’d have been around some folks that would’ve taken an interest in me.
As it was, I enjoyed the fellowship of one human being – my roommate and her dog Atticus – and one other… Mr. Jack Daniel’s whiskey.
Okay, enough carping.
So, the first turkey I had this season was at – of all places – a Chinese restaurant, the Sunday after Thanksgiving! Oh yeah… I also had some of my favorites: octopus salad, raw oysters, shrimp and kimchi, along with some beef – cooked, of course (though I’ve eaten it raw… yum! *LOL*).
I had a couple of laughs that day with my waitress and the folks at the table next to mine. I’m a personable fellow, and I like to laugh and smile.
Folks that know me, know that.
In retrospect, I suppose it all worked out for the best… though I still think it sucks.
