Longer Life Span? Don't Live Alone
New study at BYU (about old subject) suggested that if you wish to live longer, find some friends. Yep, the older you get, the more crucial it is to have friends. The more you have, the better. Our society is not just more isolated, but lacking of humans relationship. The risk of early death raised by 32% when living alone- as much as obesity, smoking, and lacking of health care. So, if you're around 60 and older, find some good friends.
Why Men Have Shorter Life Span Than Women?
In general, do you know why most men died before women?. There are several reasons why men died earlier than women. The one big reason why is because men fear of going to the doctor to get a check up. I have known a lot of close family friends who died before their times because they never get a check up. We are similar to a vehicle. We must get oil change, new tires, and refuel gas once in awhile in order to keep ourselves running smooth. When should men get a check up on their health? The answer is anytime that you don't feel right. If your family had a history of cancers, heart attack, diabetes, obesity, or suicidal, get your check up when you're reaching around 35-40 years of age and once a year there after. Listen to your body for abnormal pains or discomfort. Don't say "I'll wait until next time". The early the doctors can find out about your problems, the more survival rate you can have.

Today's Cheating Women
Women are having nearly as many extramarital affairs as men, one study finds. Men still hold the lead as cheaters, but women are quickly closing the gap. The percentage of cheating wives rose 40% from 1990 to 2010, according to a July 2013 Natural Opinion Research Center survey. About 55% women and 60% men who are having extramarital affair.
Why are there so many more cheating women? Here are the 6 reasons why:
1. They can afford to.
3. The definition of cheating is looser.
4. Women want and like sex.
5. Cheating is more culturally acceptible.
6. Women just want to have fun.

New No. 1 Fat Burner Exercise
Hitting the weights hard can burn more fat than cardio, according to a study in OBESITY. Researchers tracked the waist circumference of 10,500 men who either regularly lifted or did cardio for a dozen years, and in the end, the cardio group had nearly twice as much belly fat as the lifters.
In contrast, cardio will help you lose more over all body weight than weights training. For better result, combine the two systems into one plus eat smart and getting plenty of sleep, and you'll see what happen to your body. You'll look marvelous!!!!
Another recent study found that, in moderation, wine or grape juice could help you burn fat. No more than two drinks per day.

TOP 5 BEGINNER MISTAKES
1. Going too heavy: When you're just started out to lift weights, you can't wait to see that result, therefor, you tend to lift everything you can. Lifting too heavy will break down forms and or many cases, result in injury that set you back- sometimes you'll give up altogether. So, follow the rules, be patient.
2. Going Too Often: Again, as soon you'll see a little bit of result, you want it all in a week. 3 times a week is good enough. Allow your body to recover.
3. Not sleeping: Remember when you were a baby? Your mother feed you, change your diaper, then put you back to sleep? When we grew up, we lost sleep, stop growing- getting old very fast. Your growing hormones peak at night, while you sleep. So, get your 7-9 hours of Zsss and see you in the GYM.
4. Not drinking enough water: Human body consisted of 90% water. When you're exercising, you'll lose water through sweat. If you don't drink water, you'll be dehydrated. You will have muscles cramps, bad kidneys, and a lot more. So, do your body a favor, drink pure water, NOT red bull or Lo Co.
5. Too Many Supplements: Again, when you're a new gym rat, you wants everything fast and massive. With this obsession, you will be prone to supplement providers who will sell you a lot of horse poops. A recent study found that many supplements are fake. Last year, I knew a guy who spent $800.00 for supplements and today, he looks even worse. If you're strength training for good health, you don't need a lot of pills, powders, or steroid. All you need are healthy foods, restful sleep, and proper exercise routines. I only take one scoop of whey protein in the evening to replace my real meal. And if you really need help on energy, try herbs like ginseng.
*IF YOU MUST use supplements, look for a professional to help you. And always ask about the side effect of the supplements.
DON'T LOSE YOUR KIDNEYS and LIVERS!

A new study and experts suggested that showering too often is not very healthy for you. They recommend taking a shower every 3rd day. I don't agree with this study at all simply because if you're a working person, gym goer, or active person, you will need at least two showers a day. For me, I woke up to the shower, after morning exercise at the gym shower, after coming home from work in the evening, I will take a bath and go to bed. And often times, I even shower after sex and pooping...LoLz! Seriously! Those folks must be some stanky experts....Ahahahahahahaha!
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOOD HEALTH ALWAYS
January 2015 is here and everybody are hard at it at the gym. For now anyway. Next week or so, most of us will be back to bed hibernating for the rest of the winter...LoLz! The new year, new month, and new weather is the best time to renew your resolutions. And most of us are planning to get in shape. I had told myself that too ten years ago. I have made some good progress last year. I ate better, my exercise routines improved a great deal. I had lost some of my double chins, a little of love handles, and my stomach is a little bit flater too. I had made some new friends as well (through Craig's List...LoLz!). I hope you will meet your resolutions that you have set for yourself this year. (whatever they are). My new year resolutions are repeat of last year. I would like to be more productive for my community. Spend a little bit more time with my family. I want to be more positive, lay back, and commit myself into more cardio exercises. And most of all, I would like to stop calling my haters; assholes & bitches this year.
*GYM GOOD HABITS TO LIVE BY*
1. Please wash your workout clothes-often.
2. Use deodorant- all the gymgoers at my gym smell great, you should too.
3. Pass on perfume- Perfume is great if you don't plan to break a sweat, but when you start sweating, the mixture of the two sweat & perfume will scare your gym buddies away.
4. Go for fitness, not flirting. Socializing at the gym is a norm for most gymgoers. But, please leave a fine lady alone, unless she invites you...LoLz!
5. Tone down your make up- too much make up can make you look ugly after you sweat.
6. Don't be Ms. Know It All. Try not to assist another gym members. Unless they ask you to, because if they get injured, you're good for a law suit. Ask a trainer to help them out instead.
7. Clean up after yourself. If you're a sweater like me, you should wipe off your sweat before you move to the next machine.
8. Silence is golden.
9. Share the gear.
10.Give other gym members some breathing room.
11.Cover up. Most gymgoers don't like other members who dress in thongs and nearly topless. I have issue with covering up because I can't stand heat. Sometime I think I can burn up because my minopause is acting up. On one occasion, I saw a young lady who wore a sweat pant and a bra.
12.Don't spend too much time at the water fountain. Take a sip of water and move on if someone is behind you.
13.Don't slam the weights- we know you bench press 40 pounds...Ahahahahahaha!
14.Put up (Re- Rack) the weights back on the rack.
15.Report all worn out machines, cables, or any faulty equipments to front desk to save other members from getting injury.

IN HER EYES, FIDELITY COMES FIRST
Maybe you flash your Rolex and look like Clooney. Maybe you brag to your friends of how big and long your wang is. Perhaps, you flex your biceps, show off your huge wallet, or drive a nice pick up truck. But women somehow manage to look past all that. For a long- term relationship, women care more about whether you've cheated in the past than about financial stability, good looks, or common interests, a new study from Oakland University found.
* I kinda, sorta, of agree and disagree with this study. I believe there is a life long partner for each one of us. I also believe that women are very forgiving when it come to men who showed imperfection. All of us (men & women will make mistakes) are not perfect. I had made a few errors with relationships and still found a very good wife. George Clooney had many women (nobody is calling him a whore). Ray Rice knocked his fiancee out then gotten married. (Maybe that was his way of proposal...KeKeKe!). Mike Tyson raped his wife (if that's possible), did his jail times and moved on with his life. Kobe Bryant bought his wife a bigger ring and all the problems solved. Tiger Wood got divorced and lost his talent in Golf. But, he got a new cell phone and more ladies to text to. Hugh Hefner is elder, rich, and still dating some of the best blonds in the business (nobody is calling him old). President Bill Clinton ran the country basically by between his legs, but his wife forgave him and now they're both running the country. Hell, Charles Manson did the crimes, still serving his time at 80, and still, a 26 year- old is going to marry him in the near future. Most of us need a second chance. Some of us went through life a lot easier than others. Some got caught with bad circumstance and some are being treated unfairly by society. Although, some like O.J. Simpson, Chris Brown, Mr. Bill Cosby, and Justin Bieber are struggled to learn about what women want and what our society can tolerate. There will always be someone to give these men a chance.

Weight training strengthens your joints and ligaments and inproves your muscular powers. For all athletes, weight training is essential to improve performance and prevent nagging injuries.
The older you get, the more important strength training becomes. Genetically speaking, humans lose about 10% of muscle mass every 10 years after reaching middle age. Muscles are extremely energy consuming, so the more muscle mass you have, the more fat you will burn, even when you're not exercising.
Weight training makes you stronger and more muscular, reduces body fat, and prevents aging.

SLEEPING PROBLEMS & FIBROMYALGIA
Over the years, I have met quite a few people who had issues with sleeping. Sleep disturbances are among the most common symptoms of fibromyalgia, a chronic condition affecting the spinal cord and brain that causes people to feel pain and fatigue, and affects concentration. In fact, along with the tiredness, pain, and psychosocial distress, sleep disturbances are a core feature. In the last few years, it has become increasingly clear that treating the associated sleep disturbance improves the daytime symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Solution: See your doctor right away. Sleeping problems can affect you in many ways.

5 Summer Foods For Good Moods
I love summer time. Beside the beaches, the sun, and babes, I love foods around this time of the year. I love all fresh farm foods. The two most enjoyable foods to eat are watermelon and corn. Here are 5 farm foods that I love and they will put you in good mood after you ate them.
1. Corn is a starchy vegetables that are considered high quality carbohydrate and mood enhancers. I love corn a little bit more than rice because of its starch and enable you to poop better than rice. Rice produce sticky stools that some experts believe it will give you intestinal cancers and heart disease. Where as, corn can give you that smooth regularity. I used to say, one corn a day will keep a doctor's finger away...LoLz!
2. Eat blue and purple potato salad can reduce inflamation that lead to bad mood.
3. Watermelon is an excellent source of lycopene, helps lower risk for inflamation associated with dementia and depression. Also, watermelon is a natural viagra. Don't eat too much of it if you don't have a lover...LoLz!
4. Shrimp is a food to improve your mood. Omega-3 fatty acids may help ease depressive symptom.
5. Romaine lettuce is a great food for depression
My foods that cure depression are pizzas, steaks, and sweets (these foods are not healthy for you). But, I'll be happy, though...LoLz!
People with Parkinson's disease who regularly walk for exercise, may significantly improve their physical and mental function, a new study finds.
Blame It On The Alcohol
While the experts are concerning about tobaco, drugs, obesity, crazy, guns, and other diseases, the next killer that killed a lot of American each year is alcohol. Colorado is the state that earned the highest rate of alcohol- related deaths in America. One in 10 died of deaths such as alcohol poisoning, violence, and motor vehicle collisions, as well as conditions like breast cancer and heart disease.
A Swedish cohort study suggested that drinking moderate amounts of alcohol (red wine) may reduce the risk of developing abdominal aortic aneurysm, AAA.
Five Women's Weight Training MYTHS
by Hugo Rivera; Reword by me.
1. Exercise Increase Your Chest Size.
Sorry girls. Women's breasts are composed mostly of fatty tissue. Therefore, it is impossible to increase breast size through weight training. If you go below 12% body fat, your chest size will decrease. Weight training does increase your back size. But, don't confuse with men. Most women athletes have smaller or flat chest. In a positive way, that's how you can tell that they are healthy and in good shape. The only two ways to increase your breast sizes are to get breast implants or getting fat.
2. Weight Training Makes You Look Bulky.
No, the only way to get monster size bulky like men, you'll have to take steroid. Naturally, women can not produce testosterone as males do.
3. As Long As You Exercise You Can Eat Anything You Want.
Not true. What you put in your mouth is very important. You can ask any sucessful body builders about how they eat. Eating clean is a must!
4. Weight Training Makes You Stiff and Muscle- bound.
Not true again. If you perform all exercises through full range of motion, flexibility will increase. Also, look at people such as Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and gymnastic athletes, they all can do splits.
5. If You Stop Training Your Muscles Turn Into Fat.
Not true. Muscle and fat are two totally different types of tissue. You can't turn gold into brass.

Having problems with pooping? Chances are, you're short on fibers and eating foods that will inflame your intestines. You should poop once a day or twice if your digestion is normal and healthy.

For every additional 20 grams per day of fish protein that people ate, their risk of stroke decreased by 26%, the researchers found. DO NOT eat foods that will increase cholesterol and high blood pressure.

USDA data collected from nearly 10, 000 working- age adults show that our average daily intake has been trending downward- by close to 118 calories, or 5%- since 2005, and that we're eating less fat and more fiber. We're also hitting fewer fast-food joints, making more meals at home, and paying greater attention to nutrition labels.
Our Fat World Due To Fat Pockets
30% of the world is now fat. No country has been able to curb obesity in the last 3 decades.
Researchers found more than 2 billion people worldwide are now overweight or obese. The highest rates were in the Middle East and North Africa, where nearly 60% of men and 65% of women are heavy. The U.S. has about 13% of the world's fat population. China and India combined have about 15%. Researcher Christopher Murray said there was a strong link between income and obesity; as people get richer, their waistlines also tend to start bulging.
Exercise Is The Best Medicine
Science shows that the biggest predictor of premature death isn't smoking, drinking, or obesity, but Low Fitness. That means no matter how much you weigh, or how bad your habits are, the single best thing you can do for your health is get up and move.

CAN SEX BE COUNT AS A WORKOUT?
A lot of people think so because when you make love you seem like a lot is going on, but NO: In most cases, sex should be filed in the "light activity" category- right next to bowling or casual stroll.

Renew Your New Year Resolutions
Happy New Year to you and yours. Did you meet your last year's resolution? It's okay if you didn't. You're not alone. When it comes to fitness, it's not very easy to commit. If it was easy, everybody will probably be doing it already. Each year, about 160 millions people in USA make New Year's resolutions, but only 8% achieve them. Some experts believe the best way to fulfill your 2015 fitness resolutions maybe to not set them in the first place. The only way to achieve your goals is on your own terms. Even at your own terms can be an obstacle if you're a procrastinator. My success with exercise goal is consistency, intensity, and will power. If you wanted bad enough, you will get it. Set your goal for a long term. If you fail this year, don't stop, keep going until your goal is met. However, if you are in the middle of it and see no result, it's okay. I know it did something positive for you eventhough you din't look better than last year. Every studies about fitness had shown that any amount of exercise is better than nothing at all. Don't get discourage and don't give up. Recheck your exercise, eating habits, intensity, resting times, and keep going. Focus more on your exercises. Fitness will take times, efforts, and discipline to achieve the right result that most of us wanted. And we are planning to get fit for life, so, doing something everyday will make a huge different. Consistency is the key to all success, not just for achieving fitness.
This year, in the gym I go to, I have seen a lot of improvements in a lot of people. In medias, I see a lot of tv shows, news, and infomercials that dedicated soley to fitness and healthy living. I saw people had lost hundreds and thousands of pounds. All of that combined, we are fighting obesity head on. I am very happy for all of them. I am sincerely wish to thank everyone who gives time to help us improve the way we live. I believe if people are healthy, drug free, sober, and happy, it's easier for all of us to get along and spread peace, love, and positive thinking all around. Fitness comes from the inside of you and shine outward. That's why when you see a fit person, you know something is special about him/ her. If you're unfit, you're partially defeated- like a broken vehicle. And you know how fustrated that is.
For me, I have seen some improvements in myself as well. For the last 6 years, I've had improvement every year. My triceps are getting bigger (one of my resolutions I set last year). My strength remain the same. I will not try to lift heavier due to my doctor's advise. Weight lifting can result in heart problems. (Weight lifting can harden your arteries and turn into a heart attack if not careful, my heart specialist informed me). Over all body look, I am very satisfied. I'm not going to quit. My New Year's resolutions will include isometric exercise ( an exercise performed without weights to develop muscles) My health is my life. Let's keep going to the gym or get fit anyway you can. Good luck on your new year's resolutions. Don't give up.

Myth: SIX MEALS A DAY WILL HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT
Many studies show that there is no evidence that weight loss on hypoenergetic regimens is altered by meal frequency. One of the biggest claims as to why you should eat five or six meals a day is the concept of TEF. TEF stands for the thermic effect of foods. People take TEF way out of context. Regardless of how many times a day you eat, the ultimate factor that is going to determine your success of weight loss or weight gain is your total amount of energy (calories) consumed. There is no secret to weight loss and weight gain, eat more if you want to get big. Eat less if you want to get small. Pay more attention to your calories numbers. When I tried the six meals plan, I gained five pounds in three weeks.
The only time you should eat five to six meals a day if you want to gain muscle size like pro body builders. I guarantee you will never lose weight if you eat that much. Another mistake people make is eating 6 big macs a day vs. eating 3 healthy meals a day plus 3 healthy snacks. It depend on your activity or exercises per week as well. If you don't do anything, don't even attempt to eat six times a day. Just eat three small meals per day is good enough. Drink plenty of water.
