Walk This Way

I like smart people — folks who spend years and years becoming experts in their chosen field. It’s especially appealing if they are, as I like to say, Switzerland, i.e. neutral. If they don’t have a book to sell, a product to push, or an axe to grind, then I find it all the more impressive. Catrine Tudor-Locke is Switzerland! Dr. Tudor-Locke is a Researcher, Professor, and Department Chair of the Physical Activity and Health Lab at the School of Public Health and Health Sciences at the … [Read more...]

Don’t Die from Embarrassment!

Every now and then, if you’re really fortunate, you get to meet someone like Phil Lawler. Phil was special. He was one of those individuals who make you think, “Wow, how blessed I am to count this incredible man as my friend!” I met Phil in the early 2000s when I was hosting a nationally syndicated radio program that focused on health and fitness. He became a regular guest because of his contagious positive energy and passion. Even over the radio, you could tell he had been put on this earth for … [Read more...]

Here Comes the Tsunami

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. Mark Twain often gets credit for that statement although it most likely originated in England in the late 1800s. Regardless, the takeaway is simple, statistics can often be manipulated to support or detract from just about any position or argument. A major exception to that would be diabetes.

The quantity of food is obviously important, but so is the quality. I believe many of us overlook the importance of the quality of our diet. In terms of quantity, we measure gasoline in gallons and we measure food in calories. We require a certain amount of calories every day just to satisfy our basic needs, such as keeping our … [Read more...]
