And to add fuel to the fire today (heh heh heh) there was a bit on the news about making the right food choices. You know; apple pie vs brownies, iced tea vs pop, pretzels vs chips, etc etc and the BIGGEST ISSUE boiled down to calories. It's amazing that people still think that's what the issue is. Don't worry that both choices are garbage and are slowly killing you.

It's like if I sat there with a client and asked them what's better, this chocolate bar or a steaming pile of dog shit? Uhhh, guess again! The dog shit is better because it's LOWER IN CALORIES!!

F$%k me, I love being orthorexic.

As the topic this week seems to be eating, heres an article I ran into this evening along those lines

Geoff, does the dog eat a paleo diet?

Heavy Evy said...

Through my work benifits I get a variety of free benifits, one being Nutritional counciling. I thought I'd look into it since it was free. Well I quickly was disappointed when I was told I should add chocolate syrup, sugar, or corn syrup to my post workout shakes to up my calories, because I'm so underfed!

A. Maloney,

It's funny to see Tennessee in that article. I live in Tennessee and my wife and I have made a game of watching the evening news and trying to count the amount of non-overweight people we see. It's pretty scary when being fat is the norm.

Hmmm stepped in cow sh%* on my awesome trail run looked more appetizing than what they are recommending and definitley healthier as they are all grass fed even picked mine out for fall but that can't possibly be as healthy as those fat corn fed cow way too lean and too many good fats in them!!

30 min trail run
tabata mashup squats/situps/pushups

Great time had to improvise out here in the country

Start strength and oly bias on Monday totally stoked.

Sweet! No more steel cut oats or fresh fruit smoothies with protein powder (think of the $$ I can save on Jarrow knowing it's completely unnecessary). Guess what honey, since we're always on the run, it's french toast (with white bread of course...gotta make sure we inhale that starch) morning, noon and night.

Sadly, I see people eating those things for breakfast on campus everyday. But no it' ok since they put skim milk in their latte.

Was it for a football team this 'nutrition' package was designed for or for all the athletes? Coaches don't give a shit what the football players eat as long as they show up huge and fast. There should be a side note on how to put steriods on your morning bowl of shreddies.

Runs done at Edworthy park... this was a scary hill...

4th run was not able to make it all the way back to the bottom in 3 mins which meant I had to run up the steeper part for last 2 runs... ouch!

felt good though

Hey, if dog turds are good enough for the rest of the dawgs, then they are good enough for me. Grilling some up now! Looking forward to seeing what is one the agenda this weekend!

I'm just wondering if someone can help clarify where cookies fit into the picture? Muffins appear in the "choose often," "choose sometimes" AND "choose rarely" columns. So if muffins are ok to eat as often or as little as I choose, are cookies the same?

Food for thought...

Paul Smith said...

Mike,

I might make it over to Memphis to watch, but I don't think I'll be able to compete. I'm playing in a rugby tournament the weekend before that and it seems to take me a lot longer to recover these days. I'm sure you'll kick ass as usual. I'll definitely try to make it there to watch.
