Liver Damage, Death…and Lawsuits, Oh My! Hydroxycut FDA warning

“This has to be a joke.” That’s the tamed down and censored version of what went through my head last week when a report came out alerting consumers to stop using one of the most popular brands of diet pills, Hydroxycut, because there have been reports linking it to liver damage and even a death. Here’s a direct quote from the FDA’s alert:  “FDA has received 23 reports of serious health problems ranging fro ...

How Much Photoshopping and Retouching Happens In Magazines?

Do you really think all those pictures in magazines or on some websites are legit? Do they photoshop and re-touch those photos before putting them in the mags? If so, how much? Maybe a little like clearing up some blemishes and fixing lighting. Or maybe a lot like stripping a couple inches off your waist, carving in some abs, shrinking the thighs, etc. It all depends actually, but to think that those pictur ...

I’ve Been A Very Bad Boy

OK, so I have been a very bad boy lately. A couple weeks ago my good bloggy friend Petra over at The Wise Young Mommy gave me a pretty cool award and I didn’t follow the rules. I’m not good at accepting things like that because I just do this blog because I enjoy sharing information on weight loss, fitness and health with everybody.  Plus I like to debunk some of those crappy weight loss myths that are out ...

Physics and Fat Loss Are Related How?

Do you like Physics? I used to hate it.  I had to take it in high school and in college because of my original major – a major that didn’t last very long, largely because of all the Physics courses. I didn’t get it. It was supposed to be ‘simple’…the stuff that makes the universe work and all that, but something about it didn’t click. I like to blame it on my teachers, as all students do.  One we used to ca ...

This is going to be my last post for 2008, but it’s going to be slightly different. I’m not going to teach you anything today… …I’m going to ask you some questions. I want you to tell me what you want me to teach you. What do you want to learn? Do you want more workout videos? Do you want my videos to be instructional in nature? Do you want to know more about healthy, fat fighting foods and nutrition tips? ...

Silliness, Supervillains And A Superhero To Save Your Waist Line!

I know that I promised to introduce you to Captain Fat Blaster today, but I’m still having trouble working him out of his secret lair. He’s such a prima donna.  It’s like he’s some big movie star or something and is demanding that certain contractual agreements be met. Oh well, I’ll keep working on him and maybe I’ll get him out before his contract tells him he has to come out of hiding on Monday of next we ...

Fit Dad Is On The Hunt For Clark Kent!

Oh...my...God!  Clark Kent is missing! Given my infatuation with superheroes and the fact that I've given myself the name "The Fit Dad" and even had a logo designed with me as a superhero (yes I am that fit) it should come as no surprise to you that when I heard Clark Kent was missing that I had to do my best to help find him. What would this world be like without our wonderful Clark Kent? Well, to read up ...

What I Believe…

Over the last several weeks, months, and in some cases, years, I have informed you on how to lose weight, get in shape, live a healthier life, have better posture, and the list goes on and on. What I don’t think I have been good about is telling you what I BELIEVE in terms of health and fitness. Why is this important? Why does it matter what I believe when it comes to health and fitness? It matters because ...
