Got a minute?
That’s all I need to share my first of many video-based 1-minute fatloss tips.
Go here for the first of many….
My new design is something to see too.
I have my weekly live 1-minute video, tons of new features… even a “diet quiz” if you care to test your fatloss knowledge.
Plus my main presentation: “1 Tip To A Flat Belly!”
Just don’t laugh at my ballcap/unshaven look in the video… I wanted this to be super-casual, but I may have taken it a bit too far… ; )
Oh… speaking of a flat belly… I’d like to give you yet another reason to eat and workout the way I suggest in “Every Other Day Diet” and “7 Minute Body”…
I had to go to the hospital last week. No worries… I’m fine… just a bit of a scare. Definitely enough to wake you up from walking through life like it will never end! But fortunately for me, only a scare.
Anyway, the doctors in the hospital were amazed when they looked at my heart and lungs (they had to make sure I did not have any infection… and I didn’t.)
“Most 46-year-olds do not have these around their heart,” the doctor said as he showed me the pictures they took. You could see all these vessels around the heart and branching off the main arteries.
“Peripheral vessels… they were formed by your exercise program. Well-done! These help keep your heart strong and healthy.”
Every doc that listened to my heart said, “Wow… strong heart!”
Indeed… resistance training makes it so.
Before I left, after the scare went away, I asked the doctor his opinion on my dietary plan. “Well, obviously you are very lean and in fantastic shape for a man of any age.”
Thanks doc, but I wasn’t fishing for a compliment! Since this was a heart doctor I was curious as to his thoughts.
“If you had heart disease, or if you want to prevent it, this is the exact dietary plan I would recommend.”
While I expected to hear this, it was still music to my ears.
So, my higher-than-normal dietary fat and protein, lower-carb, and relatively frequent “fun food” dietplan is “ideal” to combat heart disease according to the good doc. And according to my family doctor.
Nice to know.

Remember: A good dietplan and exercise is not always sufficient to keep you disease-freee… but I love what the doctor told me. “People who exercise and eat like you LIVE through it and recover much faster.”
Fortunately I didn’t have a nasty virus to recover from… but if I did, I know my condition would have helped me do just that.
