The undernoted was in an email which I had shown on my blog a couple of years ago but the comments show so much sense that I thought it could do with another outing... Enjoy !
I Just Love this Doctor's reasoning ...
Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Bottom up!
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two body, your ratio two to one.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?A: Can't think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain ... good!
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?A: Oh no! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me? A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.
Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!
Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets. Remember : Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!" And ... for those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Scottish.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Scottish .
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Scottish .
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Scottish ...
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Scottish . CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. It's speaking English which apparently kills you.
