Hit the Gym and--Become a Super-Hero?!

Here's a great new article from the pages of SUPERHEROES UNLEASHED, a new magazine chock-a-block full of articles on the latest comics movies and events! Come along as one brave man decides to plunge into the world of fitness, and soon realizes it's not as tough as it seemed! He (like most who make the decision to add fitness to their lives) quickly sees his new regimen is far more rewarding (and even addictive) than he ever suspected! Click each image below to enlarge!

Above: Notice how our newcomer is surprised with the focus on his back
 and legs, since "people rarely see those parts of my body…" You'll find
 that most folks ignore leg and back workouts for that same reason!
Not smart! It's good to engage in a completely well-rounded fitness
and workout plan!

Above: Notice how, once his healthy journey has begun, his attitudes
change for the better! Not just about exercise, but about food, his body's
 needs, his relationship with his wife, interests, his life and habits (during and

after this exercise experiment), even those around him! "I am surprised not 
to feel envy. I feel superior."

New/Old Fitness Gimmicks…."Sauna Hot Pants?!"

Ah, the more things change..

Take a look at this pic of a not-so-wonderful 70s fitness device, one guaranteed to "reduce your waist, tummy, hips, and thighs…"


We can easily laugh now, but before you do, remember that the very same silly "get fit quick" junk is still being offered out there, re-dressed and re-purposed for those looking for a quick path to health…

Does the item below look familiar?

What'd I Tell You? "Cut Sugar! Lift Weights!" A 2nd Opinion!

Here is a wonderful little clipping from REDBOOK magazine, all about the "secrets" of dropping pounds…

And that secret? Watch your processed sugar intake, and lift those weights to create some fat-burning muscle…

Seems I've heard this all before..Maybe here and here?

Healthy Cereal Update! Eat Up!

As regular readers of this blog know, I devoured (!) the interesting YEAR OF NO SUGAR book, and found myself similarly inspired to read and inspect food labels more and more, on the lookout for added processed sugar in said foodstuffs..

Lo and behold, that stuff really is everywhere. Even in my beloved "healthy" cereals, like Special K! Say it ain't so!

In my search for truly healthy cereals that don't taste like week-old soggy cardboard boxes, I came up with these great alternatives, mostly from the venerable Kashi and Cascadian Farm folks! Look below to see some of my newly-discovered preferred cereals!




Very few calories or fat grams per serving…Lots of fiber, low sodium, almost all organic ingredients...

Best of all, each truly tastes sweet (thanks to cane syrup or real cane sugar), is hearty and filling, and doesn't load you up with icky articifical flavors, colors, and processed sugar! If you're like me (heaven help you), you can even mix-and-match 'em! I kinda like that.

Only downside? The contents are slight, and the prices (comparatively) high on these cereals.

But, contrast that to the cost of sky-high medical bills that a poor diet may project into your future, and….

Then and Now! Hard Work Equals Results!

Here I am, at age 11 (left), and just last week, in the gym (right)! Just a little work and effort and "stick-to-it-ness" goes a long way! It took me from being a chubby kid to a fit adult! And, if I can do it, you can do it!

Losing Weight For the Health Benefits? It Ain't Magic!

Here's a great news story, detailing how stage magician Penn Jillette lost a large amount of weight, in response to his doctor's orders.

My favorite part of his tale is the almost immediate effect the weight shedding had on his health! His doctors told him he could drop almost every medication he was taking when overweight!

That is what I advocate most about proper diet and exercise! It's how amazing it makes you feel, and those added health benefits are so wonderful!

That's what it's all about! If you lose a pant size, or add a bulging bicep, well, those are the fringe benefits of exercise and diet!
