Fruit can be bad for you!

By Lartinos, published on Jan 1, 2013

There I said it, I bet you haven’t heard that before. Hardcore dieters have known this for some time as they are well aware that fructose has a similarly bad effect on our bodies as table sugar. (Sucrose) If you are really serious about losing weight you must count every carb from fruit and make sure not to over do it. People only dieting for overall health and not to lose weight must also be aware of the sugar content of the fruits they eat. People falsely assume that the sugar in fruit is not bad for you. False! It has a negative effect on insulin levels when over consumed and can contribute... (more)

Rob Parker questions Robert Griffin's blackness

By Lartinos, published on Dec 17, 2012

Many people tune into ESPN wanting to watch sports and sports commentary. What they instead get with “First Take” is a racially motivated program that puts into question the ethics behind everyone involved in the show. “First Take” has gradually made more topics around race with Stephen A. Smith being the catalyst behind these discussions. Many times race will be inserted into a discussion to the point it is questionable journalism. Case in point being the very recent guest of Gabby Douglas who is an American of African descent who recently won a gold medal in London. Instead of speaking about... (more)

Burn That Fat

By Lartinos, published on Dec 4, 2012

The government is supposed to be there to help us, but very often their policies leave me wondering what their true intentions are. I have this belief because the government is not a good resource for nutritional information. That fact is proven in that they rarely ever update the information they distribute to their citizens. You never hear the government say anything more than telling you to watch your calorie count. That is obscenely vague to the point it is harmful. That is because it is now known that calories from carbs are not equal to those from protein.The truth of the matter is that... (more)

"Imaginary bugs itch the most."

By Lartinos, published on Dec 4, 2012

Our brains are highly sophisticated machines capable of producing amazing things. Sometimes it can feel almost like a computer that has a virus though because our emotions can hold us back. We often doubt ourselves unnecessarily and live in a state of paranoia that can seem like a nightmare that never ends. Many forget that we do indeed control our lives, and even in a state of panic there is a right way and wrong way to think. Anxiety is ingrained into us to help us, but only if we let it.

As much as it is our brains fault, we must take responsibility for the behaviors in our lives.... (more)

As we rust

By Lartinos, published on Nov 30, 2012

We are nothing but a grain of sand in this giant universe that the wind can take for a ride at any time, The few things we control just give us better chance,But lightning can strike at any time, even when we feel like we are solid as steel, Because as we rust we realize our own reality, and only then do we understand our true mortality

Burn-that-fat

By Lartinos, published on Nov 28, 2012

Losing weight is one of the most frustrating experiences that someone can attempt to endure. The reason it can be so frustrating is not just for one reason, but many. That is because successfully losing weight is a multi dimensional process for true longterm success. It is one part knowledge, one part hard-work, and one part marathon that we must truly be invested in to gain the success we want. The good news is that I firmly believe that I can help you achieve your goals, but only if you really want it.

Why do we eat what we eat? This right here is the biggest problem I come across... (more)

Hurricane Sandy has turned NY/NJ upside-down.

By Lartinos, published on Nov 1, 2012

A lot of people are detached from the world and taking cold showers while their basements are filled with mud and worse as many people are smelling and seeing oil as well. People are getting in fights at gas stations over who is next, as human emotion is getting the best of people. Very chaotic time in NY/NJ, many people lost their cars from this storm as they just floated away. I saw a report that the subways could be partially back tomorrow, but some are still under water still right now. As I look in the East River right now it has been high tide for days in a row here. Hopefully it goes... (more)

"The Vietnam War is a distant memory to the American people"

By Lartinos, published on Oct 16, 2012

The Vietnam War is a distant memory that most Americans do not understand. This makes it a perpetual problem in society, as people continue to just go along with what other people are doing. Just like Germany under Hitler, people will go with the status quo flow until it drowns them. Propaganda can become the truth: if you try to question someone about it, they will exclaim you are wrong. We are a country chasing its tail as the two-party system plays us and perpetrates wars in the name of the ruling class. It uses the media to program society to think a certain way because most don’t... (more)

Don't let yourself be blinded by those mirrors in the room..

By Lartinos, published on Oct 9, 2012

An ego is a terrible thing to let run wild, it can consume your very being and cloud what should be truly important to you as an individual. The term used for these people who lack shame, feel the need to prop up themselves at any cost, and think they are God’s gift to the planet are called, “Narcissists.” Not to be confused with someone who loves themselves in a healthful way or a sociopath who feels the need to control people but does not need recognition in any way. Self love is an important characteristic that is necessary for not only the happiness of themselves, but also the people around... (more)
