As do I. Perhaps it's because he's a fellow Irish-American and that's how a lot of us seem to carry on?

Response to a spammer some years ago, I wrote:

Welcome to the: "Smelling-The-Turd-Course"

When completed you will:

"Have been educated, and will earn the "Bull-SH@t Degree, BSD"

You clearly donít understand what impact diet and fitness "basics" has on stimulating metabolism.

Metabolism is a complicated subject; however, I thoroughly believe that if one were to understand how to manipulate calories and exercise together as a comprehensive unit, this will have a far greater impact on fat tissue loss--then the placebo effect and false sense of accomplishment so called over the counter fat loss pills tend to create.

From all the data and information I have read thus far, "meal frequency" (but is useful for nutritional and other fitness purposes) is a minor player on the impact of metabolism (if having any), and has much less of an impact on metabolism, than calorie manipulation and exercise manipulation.

You would be better served paying attention to manipulating your calories and exercise, than exercising your wallet on fat burners.


For amusement, I was looking at a bottle of Mega-T.

Product label:

*Helps curb appetite
*Helps burns calories
*Helps fight mental fatigue

All the above have a caption asterisk next to it, and when one reads this it says:

"We believe over a period of time you can lose up to 20 pounds if you follow a proper weight loss diet and exercise plan."

Bang the head on the table and shake and rattle the brain! WAKE UP!

Fat loss pills WILL NOT BE responsible nor the stimulant to bring about fat loss! Why do you think they include clauses such as these on so called fat burner products? Because the deficit diet is the absolute KING of all fat burners, the nutrients are the decision maker, and fat burners are bull SH@tters to take your money from your pocket and make a profit. In addition, you need to understand this market isn't even regulated to the degree it should be.

Congratulations, you just had a "smelling-the-turd-course", and have earned your "bull-sh@t" degree.

We have one life; we have one body.

Our greatest wealth is our personal health.



The status of our on-going health is the most important above and beyond any exterior physical thing we acquire in our life or the temporary good feeling one wants from an exterior substance.

Exterior physical things can be replaced; but, there is only one of each of us.

When all the smoke clears about our differences in opinion on what "looks good" in the physical (or what is a healthy habit), what matters in the end, is our inner well-being and health. Our greatest wealth is our personal health.

Some of us can be blind to this truth, until its taken from you like a thief in the night. And, what this thief leaves behind, is a paling gloss of what was once thought to be important and revealing the inner pigment of what is.

The "unnamed thief" reveals and exposes reality. We sometimes will not know when, where, how, and sometimes why, this "unnamed thief" enters.

This "unnamed thief" enters seemingly immorally, without warning, and in some cases without explanation of its cause, but it will awake within you.

Our goals within diet fitness "do have a price tag", but our health is priceless.

Yes, we all have diet and fitness goals, and they have a price tag: I am not willing to pay the expense of looking good (or "knowingly" put something in my mouth) and put my health in past tense. I will increase the odds that I will be healthy, knowing I can not completely eliminate them.

Our bodies carry us within this one-chance-at-life journey; the beliefs we carry about certain issues within our life ought to be examined thoroughly, as once we reach the death bed one will learn whether they were right or wrong. Stubbornness on convictions can be death to one and not know it, until......its too late.
