By Jason Kidd, published on Jan 21, 2014

You’d be surprised at how many people feel uncomfortable working out at the gym. Sweat patches, a glistening read face and our self-conscious wobbly bits can make a few hours in the local sports centre extremely stressful, so it’s no wonder that a lot of us prefer to exercise in the privacy of our own home.

That said, it’s unlikely that your garage or spare bedroom is capable of boasting the same range of high-tech equipment and stimulating atmosphere as the local gym. However, for those of you who are much more comfortable working out at home, we’ve put together some handy tips for... (more)

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)

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.

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)

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)

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Jan 31, 2008

...with anger. The doctor gave me a number to some anger management office, but I long throw that number away. What saved me was going back to boxing!

I wish that I didn't throw away that number, but I cannot afford to make some doctor rich. Instead, I continued my therapy at the Broadway Gym. (The Pugilistic Writer) I did do some research over the internet on Anger Management and other problems dealing with the anger issues. So I pretty much diagnosed myself as a candidate for Anger Management.

I learned that there is three approaches to dealing with your anger. 1)... (more)
