I'm sorry but what I've read sounds like crap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an
efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy
vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.
Sounds like crap to me. Meat has a lot of cholesterol in it, animal fats is one of the reasons why so many folks are getting strokes and heart
attacks. Eating meat is good, but not good when you over eat them. My dad used to eat alot of meat, once he found out he had high cholesterol he
stopped eating to much and starte eating more veggies and fruits. He fine now.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good
There are advantages of excercising.
1) Increases energy levels
2) Maintains, tones, and strengthens your muscle. Exercise also increases your muscular endurance.
3) Decreases your blood pressure
4) Increases your matabolism so you burn calories everyday
5) Makes the heart a more efficient pump by increasing stroke volume
6) Increases the strength in your bones
7) Improves your sleeping patterns
8) Decreases blood levels of fat
9) Causes the development of new blood vessels in the heart and other muscles.
10) Enlarges the arteries that supply blood to the heart
I could go on with this list.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO .Cocoa beans. Another vegetable. It's the best feel-good food around
Yes its good for you, but don't over eat it. Remember, to much sugar can turn to fat.
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.
Swimming does give you a good figure, as for the whales. Whales need that load of fat becuase it protects them from the cold water.
advantages of swimming:
-A stronger heart
-Better balance and muscular endurance
-Improved strength and flexibilty
-Improved blood circulation
-Relief from stress and tension
-Increases your energy
- Rehabilitation for used or healing muscles and recovery from accidents and injuries
-Enhanced physique or figure
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
It calculates your body fat percentage. inch-aweigh.com...
Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions any of you may have had about food and diets.
Misconceptions? Scientists and nutritionists spend many years researching ways to make peoples bodies healthy naturally just so we don't get sick and
dies of cancer, viruses, diseases etc etc Give them some credit. What your friend sent you is totally false, I suggest you don't follow what he sent
you if you want to live a healthier life.
