Should You Pay Attention?

When I was a kid, every time I asked my mom what we were going to eat she replied “one hand today, the other hand tomorrow.” Now I’m thinking that I may have to eat my feet too one day because if you believe these news headlines…

  • Red Meat Causes Cancer And Heart Disease
  • Fish Is Contaminated With Mercury And Toxins
  • 99% of Broiler Chickens Are Infected With Feces
  • Fruits Contain Poisonous Fructose That Make You Obese
  • Grains Contain Carbs That Spike Insulin And Make You Fat
  • Vegetables Have Pesticide Residue That Cause Kidney Disease
  • Saturated Fats Cause Bad Cholesterol And Make You Fat
  • Water Is Filled With Fluoride, Toxins And Estrogen

What are we supposed to eat? And how far will they go with this nonsense?

Rarely will they remind you of a simple fact – the top 3 causes of death in the US according to Wikipedia remain smoking, obesity and alcohol. Is it surprising that more people die each year from smoking tobacco than from eating tuna cans? It shouldn’t, yet a lot of guys waste their time worrying about the details instead of staying focussed on the big picture…


And everybody knows the best training program and diet is the one you stick to. Ironically, being anal kills consistency. Dude won’t eat tuna cans because of the mercury, but eating taco bell 3x/week because he didn’t have time to prepare his food for work, that’s okay. Just take the frigging tuna can with you to work and eat it with salad, this lazy 5min meal is 100% healthier than that crap.

And don’t get me even started about the guy who only buys organic food that are pesticide-free, but then eats organic DONUTS that make him fat. Or the one who smokes cigarettes between his sets of biceps curls. Dumb and Dumberer.

This isn’t your fault, they wouldn’t sell newspapers, books, TV viewership or get your taxpayer’s money to conduct silly research if they weren’t catching your attention by scaring you with this nonsense. What do you expect? The exercise-eat-whole-foods-be-consistent-record has been played to death.

Personally, I don’t pay attention to it anymore. Plenty of distractions already, don’t need more from people who don’t even know what they’re talking about. I recommend you start ignoring and blocking these people too.
