Paleness Superhero, career spraytan-protester, and all-around Snooki Arch-Enemy Jim Gaffigan grumps his way through his thoughts on ice-cream-based health-programs & criminally-intemperate milk-varieties on Conan.
Teamcoco-Jim Gaffigan on Health Foods
So this interesting study came out echoing some previous thoughts on fast-carbs, and ultimately supported the idea of eating your fruit instead of drinking it.
One of the more clever things it Did do, was to note that some fruits more than others were associated with health problems like Diabetes.
But some of the other things it wasn’t really focused on, was to suggest reasons Why, or to fill in too many of the blanks.
So on that note, here are a few thoughts on it you might want to consider:…
So this new study by the Karolinska Institute tells us a few things we already knew, and some we didn’t.
After looking at 20 programs that put people on a straight-bonkers weight-loss diet of 1,000 calories/day, the analysis concluded that high-protein [and I’m assuming Low/Slow Carb] diets after the program helped people keep off the rebound weight. Where have we heard that before?
It’s hard to imagine anyone, or their body, not having a bit of a freakout once the weight or fat is lost. The difference is jarringly-stark. And trying to re-enter ‘the real world’ after such an incarceration is not the smoothest of transitions…
Imagine if you had to learn how to be an Architect/Civil-Engineer, but you weren’t allowed 2x4s, wood, bricks, cement, steel I-beams, bolts, nails, mud, hay, cow-butts; -nothing in the way of building-supplies,
And all you were allowed to do was take apart existing skyscrapers, experiment, and sketch?
Well, that phase in Brain-Science is over…
Here’s a great video by ASAP Science to show you what 200 calories looks like.
It’s also a pretty good primer on the different Calorie-Densities of the foods you’re probably eating.
And while you’re thinking about them, remember: Processed, Take-out, and Restaurant foods will likely have a lot of extra calories you don’t really need.
One example is the difference between…
Okay, Okay, -so we’re still a little way off from invading peoples’ thoughts or flipping tractor-trailers through the air like baby toys the way that Dr. Charles Xavier and Magneto do,
But here’s a BIG hat-tip to the previously-thought woo-woo field of Meditation:
In the first(?) study known to have taken and analyzed blood-samples of people before and after the test,
It turns out that Meditation can Actually Control Something…
As a bitter salve to help those of you who’ve skipped the Asparagus and are saddled with abjectly-Dickensian hangovers in the timesmudge loosely referred-to as “today”, I’d like to rub a little salt in your wounds and make it all go away.
Now the nickname could have gone one of many ways: ‘Dict, Shooter, Dragonbreath, Substance, Bender, or Sniffles.
(Cockroach has been reserved for Keith Richards for
DECADES Centuries, now.)
But ultimately, it seemed prudent to just go with the obvious old stand-by.
Anyway: That’s right boys and girls. It turns out The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne himself, is a Mutant…
And while we’re on the subject of Alcohol,
Who Else but The New Yorker could do such a monster article on Drinking and Hangovers? -I have no damn good answer for that.
Ok; besides: “Ernest F****** Hemingway”,…
Nevertheless: Hop on over and be blown away by the entire geopolitical cavalcade that is Joan Acocella’s Magnum Opus,
From feeling like Gregor Samsa when you wake up,
Chalk another one up for the “Horny Scientists Study Sex, File Results Under Captain Obvious Department”.
Stuart Brody, Petr Weiss and their cult of Kinsey-following-hound-dogs at the University of West Scotland [who would not let yours-truly tag along, DAMMIT] conducted a noble experiment on our favorite species: WOO-MAAAN!!!, doing our favorite activity: “Ye Olde How’s your father?”, and come up with some guessable-yet-Fantastic results…
