Love It Or Loath It? Why Self-Awareness Is The Real Key To Weight Loss | Body for Wife

Love It Or Loath It? Why Self-Awareness Is The Real Key To Weight Loss

Spent some time feeling inferior, standing in front of my mirror. – Rod Stewart, Every Picture Tells a Story I am not quite Chewbacca. But it doesn’t bother me. In fact, when I’m in the shower and look down at the wall of hair, I think: I can dig it.

To Lose Weight, You Need To Stop Lying To Yourself | Body for Wife

To Lose Weight, You Need To Stop Lying To Yourself

Many want to lose weight. And keep it off. Let’s not forget that “keep it off” part. I just didn’t want the title of this piece to get too long. So, what are these lies people tell themselves about weight loss? Is it about ignoring calories because they’re totally, like,…

The video James fell says you may wish to watch but then parenthetically says is no longer available can be found here:

Paleo is the Scientology of Diets | Body for Wife

The scientific reasoning for the Paleo diet just isn’t there. The “science” the advocates claim just doesn’t hold up to real scrutiny. It’s bullshit in that regard. That said I think if using a “Paleo diet form of thinking“, using it as a metaphor, helps a person achieve a lower caloric intake either by unconsciously adopting a more HFLC type of diet or just eating less (lowering calories in in relationship to calories out) then it can possibly be worked and the cases that are thrown out as anecdotal examples or testimonials that is the real reason it worked, not the bullshit of “Paleo science.”

Paleo is the Scientology of Diets

I was close to landing a fitness interview with Tom Cruise, but then he bailed. And so I am now free to say that Scientology is stupid. People make fun of the space alien aspect of it, but did you know that one of their beliefs is “silent birth?” A.K.A….

The Jillian Michaels Story | Body for Wife

I have never been a fan of Jillian Michaels motivational style. In fact I think it really really sucks but I really lost respect for here when she started selling Jillian Michaels diet pills that couldn’t and didn’t measure up to the claims she was making about them (Update: Jillian Michaels Faces Third Lawsuit Over Her Fat-Burning Pills – Nutrition Unplugged).

And now I’ll stand with James Fells criticisms of her until I hear or learn otherwise…

The Jillian Michaels Story

I feel a disturbance in the balance of the force. As I write this, Jillian Michaels is a mere three miles from my house. She is at the local GoodLife Fitness teaching her new class called BODYSHRED (Trademark symbol, hashtag awesome, hashtag whatever). My wife made me promise not to…

The Exercise Myth | James Fell Body For Wife

“For years I’ve extolled the virtues of exercise as a way to control your eating behaviors and sculpt your physique into something that looks great and performs amazing feats. And I have been wrong.” — James Fell

The Exercise Myth

Even though I smelled bad enough to knock a buzzard off a gut pile, the people in the medical tent of the 2013 Victoria Marathon were kind and caring. One paramedic even let me use his cell to make a long-distance call to my wife, who was watching via Internet…

How SciBabe Lost (and kept off) 90 Pounds

This Guest Post is by Yvette d’Entremont, A.K.A. Science Babe www.SciBabe.com / www.Facebook.com/SciBabe Screw you, Dane Cook. My brain is geared to like certain things: Puppies, dirty jokes, and data. I’m a scientist, so I made a career out of at least one of these. I also cry with joy…

45 Life Lessons I’ve Learned in 45 Years | Body for Wife

45 Life Lessons I’ve Learned in 45 Years

So because Facebook has a tendency to ram shit down my throat that I’d really rather not read, I was exposed to some hippie granola bullshit called “39 Life Lessons I’ve Learned in 39 Years.” I mean, it’s not all bullshit. There was some good stuff in there. There was…

Eat This Motherfucking Lasagna | Body for Wife

It goes without saying I’m a big fan of James Fell but this recipe of his has me in stitches.

Eat This Motherfucking Lasagna

Stop sauce shaming. I get my sauce from a jar. Yours is made from scratch. Mine is better, because the taste isn’t tainted with sanctimonious douchebaggery. “Oh, you get your sauce from a jar? Wow, I can’t believe you don’t make it from scratch. I always-” SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! FUCKYOUFUCKYOUFUCKYOU! Yes, I…

The Difference Between Inspiring and Shaming

Image source. You are a singularly unique individual. Just like everyone else. I don’t dig this whole special snowflake syndrome where everyone needs to be handled with kid gloves. Some people are awesome, and others just suck. If you go through life thinking the world owes you something wonderful, then…
