Default Definitive Good Health

MY FAVORITE DOCTOR!




HEALTH QUESTION & ANSWER SESSION

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... Don't
waste them on exercise . Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up
your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can
extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer?
Take a nap.

________________________________


Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay
and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more
than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system.
Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass
(green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your
recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.
________________________________


Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine,
that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even
more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms
up! (my favorite one!)
________________________________


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to
one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
________________________________


Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular
exercise program?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!
________________________________


Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: You're not listening.... Foods are fried these days in vegetable
oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more
vegetables be bad for you?
________________________________


Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You
should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
________________________________


Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Another vegetable. It's the
best feel-good food around! !
________________________________


Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.
________________________________


Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape! !
________________________________


Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had
about food and diets.

And remember:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather
to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other
- body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO,
What a Ride!"

Thumbs down

Of course, I exercise daily. 21 steps up & down, minimum 6 times a day, sometimes 10. (to & from my bedroom & also the office)

Junk food & drinking hmmmmmm once a week, maybe twice cheers:

wifey reminding me few times a week, but no progression to yelling yet. Yelling is reserved to mum!!!

Decision to start exercising (with immediate effect): Taken at least once everyday from the last 18 months

Well, my wife and I are into yoga these days. But, we have not been very regular. We need to go to our classes at 5:30 am. Com'on, this is Bangalore winter. Getting up at 5 is getting difficult and we are conveniently missing classes. Too bad on us. We should start classes regularly again.

I walk to the liquor store.....(exercise)
I put lime in my corona.....(fruit)
Celery in my Bloody Mary.....(veggies)
Drink on the docks....(fresh air)
Tell jokes, laugh.....(eliminate stress)
Then pass out.(rest)

LOL. Just kidding. I wish life was like that but being in Army, one has to stay fighting fit. Exercising is engrained in the daily system. Belt buckle has to look ahead. But never the less, there is no compromise in hogging and boozing.

My friends used to opine about me as; Sandy Baba kiske? Khaye, Piye, Khiske!

washing the car is as good an exercise as any. However doing it once a week is too less.

avoid using lifts, walking to the nearest store, cleaning the house are all good small exercises which will benefit a person.

If you have a free gym in office/apartment you will never use it... pay for a gym and atleast the thought of money going waste will make you go to a gym. Atleast that's my case !!!

hmm But why do you need to exercise to do all that. Ofcourse they can be done without exercise. Though you may argue for how long the fun will last

Nope. I'm unmarried.

But if you know a doctor who would want to marry a man who should run 1km a day, do point her this way. I'm doing it anyway. cheers:
