Is that why “red meat” is bad for you?

When’s the last time you ate a fast food burger?  Are you waiting for ground beef to go on sale at the grocery?  Did your kiddos eat at the school cafeteria , have you checked the menu lately?

“Pink Slime” is whats being served in most school districts.  The slime is essentially the glue holding the meat together.  Its not really glue but it can’t be much worse!!

Saving THREE CENTS a pound off production costs and making $440 million/year in revenue the FDA has allowed the beef industry use fatty slaughterhouse trimmings treated with ammonia as a filler in ground beef.

Is that why some critics say that “red meat” is bad for you?

In January fast food restaurants stopped serving pink slime, I wonder what Bowling Green schools serve, does anybody know?

Here is a quick newscast from Denver I found about the pink slime zqak7r04

Thoughts on Fitness

-Being consistent over time is what matters most in fitness – not what you did 3 days ago.

-You can’t fall off the wagon if you were never moving in the first place

-Don’t put other people over yourself when you’re the one that hurts most

-You can make excuses and be miserable with what life hands you

– or Live to Give

20 Worst Drinks in America – #7

#7 Margarita: Red Lobster Lobsterita

24 fl ozs

890 calories
0 g fat
183 g carbohydrates

Carbohydrate Equivalent: 7 Almond Joy candy bars

20 Worst Drinks in America – #11

#11 Starbucks Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha with Whipped Cream (venti, 20 fl oz)

660 calories
22 g fat (15 g saturated)
95 g sugars
Sugar Equivalent: 8½ scoops Edy’s Slow Churned Rich and Creamy Coffee Ice Cream

Hopefully this will dispel any lingering fragments of the“health halo” that still exists in coffee shops—that misguidedbelief that espresso-based beverages can’t do much damage. In this 20-ounce cup, Starbucks manages to pack in more calories and saturated fat than two slices of deepdish sausage and pepperoni pizza from Domino’s. That makes it the equivalent of dinner and dessert disguised as a cup of coffee. If you want a treat, look to Starbucks’ supplyof sugar-free syrups; if you want a caffeine buzz, stick to the regular joe, an Americano, or a cappuccino.

I want This – and you can have some too

Jadever Body Fat Scale. Old version of model J...

I want to teach people about “body awareness” and how to lose body fat, which starts by “detoxing” the body of extra fats, carbohydrates and sugars.  A person has to be mindful of what goes into the body and how much they want vs. what they need.  There is no other way.

Eat to live, not live to eat.  Choose between quality and quantity.  Quality is more nutritious for the body.  Quantity is to hard on the body because of toxic fat stores.

You have to negate the extra calories (sugar/candy)from the diet if they can not be eaten with control.  You have to be a responsible cookie owner!!

You have to be in control and accountable for your self.  if you think you need help, help yourself.

Self help is the best help.
