I have a theory about how “health food” is made. You take a cookie and place it next to a piece of lettuce, by some rule of action/reaction balance the cookie looses calories while the lettuce gains them. Somewhere there is 4,000 calorie an ounce lettuce. I think the term “health food” is bizarre. I use it because at the supermarket that is how they label the aisle. What are the other aisles? “un-health food” or “anti-health food”? Apparently eating food from the magic aisle will make you healthy.
I guess that is why I nicknamed myself and my blog “Foolsfitness”, because the whole industry is just bizarre. Folks like fellow bloggers Sean Anderson and the Tony the Anti-Jared Posnanski aren’t about the magic tricks and see the foolishness behind the whole thing… It’s not rocket science to eat in decent portions for a reasonable caloric intake while getting moving a bit. (not that it isn’t a challenge sometimes)
I admit, the other day I bought some contraband. in the form of a muscle building magazine… but I got it for the articles, not the scantily clad women body builders, and for inspiration and motivation. There are literally 4 page ads for magic pills and powders. I guess these guys don’t really do any work at all, just take the elixir of health and well being and bam… superhero complete with six pack abs. If they do work out it’s nice to know its just minutes a day on a machine that is a modern art sculpture… and it takes little or no effort. There are more *whole pages* with ads than pages of articles! Hey, the ladies “health” magazines at the checkouts are no better…”Easily loose 8 pounds this week!” and look like the anorexic chick on the cover?
One of the current crazes Sean spoke about in a recent blog is “anti-oxidants” where he wonders about their magic, I wonder does that help you not rust? Isn’t oxidation rust? Or if it’s oxygen do I want anti-oxygen? If they do speak about foods it’s something about the wonders of Organic Smurf berry juice from the western shores of Sweden and it needs to be eaten every three hours and four minutes or twenty-two minutes after a workout to achieve maximum results, which are not typical anyway.
Fine, if you really want it that way go back to my blog posting “Hey, It’s an Adult Sit and Spin” Where I promote my amazing fitness exercise tool known as a “Pad of Paper!”
