Ever since childhood, when I first saw one of those news segments about a fat American who had to be lifted out of his room with a crane, I’ve had a morbid fear of becoming morbidly obese. Strangely, the thing I find most horrifying is being stuck in one’s room for twenty years. Sad!
I know a few of you are going to put up your hands in confession to doing this, too: I sneak a peak at what fat people eat to see what the bloody hell’s going on. Not people who are a little chubby. FAT people.
I always expect to find that they eat healthily but just have some sort of glandular imbalance that causes them to get fat, but what I always uncover is Read More
I’ve shared a lot. I’ve already shared too much. But for some reason I’ve never shared this.
I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian for seven years. In that time I did not touch a single scrap of meat or fish. I wasn’t one of those, ‘Oh I’m vegetarian but sometimes I have, like, just a little bit of, like, chicken or whatever’ vegos (i.e. the female ones). I was dedicated and pious.

Being an organised chap I set goals, each with its own, detailed to-do list. The trickiest part is choosing the goals in the first place. How often have you sat down and thought, what do I want to do with my life?

Looking back on my early adulthood, I regret not Read More
What strange things happen when one tries to go to the gym.
I somehow sleep through my alarm the first seven times. It is ear-piercing to the point of East German torture yet I repose like the dead. Why? Because God makes my Read More

I just finished a seven week cut. The hairy keg reduced by 3.5cm. I was not very fat so this was just a tidy up after a long build and then a period of relative inactivity.
You fellas done a cut before? It is hard. They did an experiment once, on US soldiers. They fed them about 500 calories less than they needed each day. Within a short space of time they took down their lady pinups and replaced them with Read More
I recently attended a convention dominated (rather meekly) by SWPL professionals of various nationalities. I gazed around, as one does, to check out the talent and the competition.
The white women were a bit fat. The Asian women were petite unless they’d been living too long in a Western country. Others: varied. Few looked particularly fit or sporty.
The fellows, on the other hand. Almost to a man, they Read More
