Obesity Is So Complicated When You're Reading HuffPo

    This is becoming extremely annoying watching people write article after article about how complicated weight loss is, and what our next excuse is for being fat.   Some of the more recent, laughable pieces; Blame The Workplace For American Obesity, Obesity in America: Are Factory Farms, Big Pharma and Big Food to Blame?, Combating Obesity: How and How Come, Are Chefs To Blame For Obesity?, Why is our Food Making us Fat?, Obesity: Character Flaw, or Neurochemical Disease?, and finally; Why We Get Fat.
     I am ready to begin arguing that its articles such as these that are contributing to obesity by obscuring the readers' understanding of obesity, while offering them excuses for their girth, blaming genetics and diseases.  These articles forgive the overweight reader, suggesting that not being obese is very difficult and complicated.  The last thing people who are overweight need is for the issue of weight loss to be translated into Greek.  We need to educate people on the simple facts, which require no special diet book sold on Amazon for $18.75, with the option of the "Extreme Weight Loss Guide" for and additional $8.85 (plus separate shipping and handling). 
      Obesity is simple.  It is the result of consuming more calories than you've used.  Weight loss is simple.  Use more calories than you consume.  The average person only requires 1,500 to 2,500 calories per day.  For every extra pound of body fat you have, that means that you consumed 3,500 calories more than what your body requires in order to function.   You can easily lose 1 pound of body fat in just over 3 days, by simply creating a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day (there are many online tools that can be used to calculate your required caloric intake, so you know how many calories to be taking in in order to maintain the deficit). 
      For your 500 calorie per day deficit, you can either create the entire deficit by adding exercise, or by reducing calorie consumption.  The best way, is to do a combination; 250 less calories consumed, and 250 calories burned with exercise.  A twenty ounce soda contains around 250 calories, so simply replace your afternoon Coke with a Diet Coke, or better yet, water (also, you should get in the habit of always reading nutrition labels when they are available to you).  Spend 30 minutes on an Elliptical Trainer to burn the other 250 calories.  
       Do this correctly, and you will lose two pounds of body fat per week.  Actual weight may not decrease, as you may be building muscle.  A good way to monitor your results is to take measurements around your waist, arms, and thighs.  Be patient, and stick with it.  If this is not effective, I suggest you see your doctor (who will most likely say that there is nothing wrong with you, you are simply cheating on your diet) because you may have a medical condition. 
      Its just that simple.

My Big Brain Does It Agian

Just another example of my big ol' brain, hard at work.  Righting wrongs, and calling out those who are less informed. 

    I read an article at The Frisky about how singer, Adele hates paying her taxes, quoting her as saying,“Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t and I’ve gotta give you like four million quid. Are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [her first album] 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”

     This is disturbing on a number of levels, but here is what happened when I commented (whilst biting my tongue and deciding not to mention her apparent homicidal wills). 


  • She sounds like a republican to me. I wish that sometimes, celebrities would just keep their mouthes shut. After you realize that you don't respect that person, its difficult to look past that, and appreciate their art.

    Like a republican how? Everyone I know (regardless of how much money they make) bitches about paying taxes. I'm sure it was a surprise to her how much she had to pay assuming that prior to her commercial success she was just a working stiff like the rest of us (or me anyway).

    And I'm sorry but most of the republicans I know aren't buying houses for their parents or setting up trust funds for family members- they're trying to keep as much as they can for themselves.


  • "Like a republican how?"? Like a republican because she's making enough money that she can buy houses for family members, provide all the comfort and luxury for herself, and bitches about helping to support the trains and schools, which she apparently finds to be inadequate (not realizing that the reason for their inadequacy is lack of funding).

    The reason "most republicans" aren't buying houses for their parents is because "most republicans" are "working stiffs" who lack the education to understand that higher taxes on the wealthiest 1% of the population actually decreases their own tax burden, and helps to better their own quality of life by providing better public transit, schools, access to health care and community programs.

    The reason the republicans you know aren't buying houses and setting up trust funds is because the republicans that you know are not wealthy enough to benefit from being a republican, and they should probably reconsider their political stance.

Diamond Watches

Why do people wear diamond watch? Of course teens want to emulate their personalities, and as a result, bling jewelry, including diamond watches, was a major fashion statement. The reason is that an increasing number of designer watches are now on the market with different brands under the distinctive styles that have classic diamond watches modern twist.

There are diamond watches, and then there are diamond watches like this. Graff metaphorically knocks on the door of luxury with a resounding "bling bling!" arrival announcement. You simply don't get too much more "diamond watch" than this timepiece figuratively held hostage by the precious stones. The case and bracelet (what little of it is actually metal!) is done in 18k white gold while a dizzying collection of 176 diamonds on the case and another 94 diamonds on the bracelet that crowd the design of the watch like a bunch of too many densely packed wealthy neighbors. The entire watch has 59 carats of pure glitzy glory. Likewise the timepiece is known as the Superstar, or GraffSuperstar. Whatever the title, this watch is is certainly a statement about the woman wearing it. However that statement might be "I enjoy rubies and emeralds in my breakfast cereal." Sorry gentlemen, we will have to settle for a less diamond studded version. Stones on the Superstar watch are in trilliant and trapeze cuts that gives a very modern and angular shape that is also quite cohesive. Round cut stones make for good decor, but these more angular cuts allow for a more tiled look that enhances the "total diamond watch" style that Graff is going for. My instincts tell me that the movement inside the watch is Swiss quartz. The dial of the watch is no testament to legibility, but should be readable - a nice trapeze cut emerald is the only non-diamond stone of the bunch and serves as the 12 o'clock marker. Not the type of watch you want to wear publicly in certain parts of the world, cost to likely be tantamount to purchase of said parts of the world.
