I have never cared much at all for the Biggest Loser and the regimen it puts upon its contestants. I have said this before and I will say it again. Its not a prudent way to get people healthy and fit. Trying to lose 40 lbs in one week is insane ,and I would like to see the success rate of these individuals after 5 years. Just the medical complications that can occur from training 8 hours a day while weighing over 400 lbs are enough for me to say, NO THANKS !!
NOW getting back to Ms. Jillian. First of all if you want my true feelings on her Lifestyle……well I simply do not believe in same sex marriage or same sex relationships. There you got it out of me. If you want to hate me for saying that and wring my neck for saying that , then go ahead. I never back down from expressing my true feelings whether it is political or any other genre.
Now that being said with all the crap that goes on in our society involving, you got it, male and female relationships, it is nice to see two people of any gender get along in a seemingly harmonic fashion with their family.
And even though I do not believe in same sex marriage or relationships, I believe it is a fundamental Right and Freedom for them to partake in one. Kind of like how I do not care for guns at all but realize everyone should have the opportunity to have one if they qualify and do not hurt others without provocation.
You know it is so IRONIC that the people who continually vote down same sex marriage and want the Government to intervene in this matter are the same people who always rant and rave about how Big Government is the evil of mankind ! Thats crazy !!
Anyway , I do think Ms. Jillian does the Biggest Loser because money can cloud someone’s thinking. I believe she does it for all the wrong reasons.
But I do think Ms. Jillian and her love for her two children and partner is a beautiful thing and she does it for all the right reasons !.
There is nothing greater than the unconditional love a parent has for their child. And Ms. Jillian is a excellent example of a great Mom !
Have a great weekend and see you in October,

Hey guys, I hope you are winding down the weekend with a good, rested psyche. I know my family and I have had a great time this weekend. I had been sick through a lot of last week and even had a slight fever, a lot of vomiting, and bad headaches. Along with this I had my PVCs going on which made things that much more distressful !!
I am over it now and feeling really good. I lost a lot of calories and weight because I threw up and missed a bunch of meals because of the sickness. So guess what ?? When I felt better this weekend I fueled up on some not so great calories like Pizza and Burgers. I do not recommend this for everyone. Actually for really none of my readers at all.
I am at a stage in my Life where I needed to do this and I could do it. For most though, it is not one of the best ways to lose weight and stay healthy !!
Anyway, I just really wanted to touch up and tell you guys how much I am really against fad diets. The flavor of the month diet that will get you down to that 125lbs doesn’t really say what you need to do afterwards.
I know a few years ago my brother was over 300 lbs. He went to the doctor who put him on some popular diet at the time where you just drank liquids for like 6 weeks. well, my brother got down to 160 lbs and everyone one was all ‘pat on the back’ happy and proud of him. My parents were elated.
Well guess what happened in the next 2 years ?? What happened was pretty much indicative of why I call fad diets full of crap……not only did he gain back all the weight he loss, he put back even more than before.
Like I said short term fad diets do not work ; not unless you have some strict plan on what steps you are going to take to adopt a very healthy lifestyle after losing the initial weight from the diet.
Too many people want quick fixes or a magic pill to get thinner and get healthier.
Its no secret folks: Learn to eat smart, adopt a doable exercise regimen, and get good rest and sleep. Its a ‘Marathon’ not a ‘Sprint’.
Now there is nothing wrong with losing a few quick pounds in the first week or so to jump start your body and get you a little confidence and motivation. (Maybe a Biggest Loser type scenario on a much, much smaller and safer level.) After this though, its paramount you do what I said right above !!
Peace out and looking for a Magnificent Fall,

Hey guys I hope you are having a great Holiday weekend. For me ?? Its been great but today I have some cold or something that will be a hurdle in my regular Monday routine i.e. Running 5 miles and doing my Push up and Crunch workout. ( yes contrary to what many say once you reduce you overall Fat you can start to see some definition in your Abs by doing crunches
I hope to get back on track tomorrow.
I had more than 2 cheat meals this long weekend. More like 4 or so.
Its funny though because even with the large intake of Calories I am still staying at around the weight of 180 lbs or so.
Basically, my body is in maintenance mode where my metabolism increases and the added muscles comes into play to make my body a really efficient fat burning machine !! So it goes into overdrive when I stock up on Calories and Fatty foods and tends to burn them off in resting mode !!!
I guess all these years of working out since I was 7 years old has paid off.:)
You can reach that same level but be sure to limit Cheat Meals to two each week with no more than 1,500 calories per meal !!
For me, I do want to get back on my regular healthy diet which includes plenty of Protein, some Fat and Carbs, a lot of Veggies and fruit, and also whole grain and some dairy.
If you keep a consistent count on doing this along with exercising you cant help but lose weight over time.
Just stay focused with little distractions to get you off course !!
Have a good remaining Labor Day weekend,
Robert Andrew :>)
