I just found out that the quack (and probably dishonest) nutrition doctor from the 60 minutes piece (a sponsored segment) has been appointed to the USA Dietary Guidelines Committee 2025. Appalling .

She is a confirmed Big Pharma shill, and the record of her being paid is public. In the past and currently she is a known 'advisor' to pharmaceutical companies. She received 15K from the fat loss drug she is currently shilling. Her total recorded payment in 2022 was about 35K, but we can safely assume other perks and benefits like consult fees and commissions and paid holidays attached to conferences and media events and so forth. This known payment coincides with her current media tour.

It's corrupt, they are evil, and they're coming for your children.

The garbage gets worse (see previous post).

I've been struggling, too. I had a corn on the bottom of my foot which interferes with leg day, and it just hurts which generally drains my energy, but I had it cut out today.

That means I have 5 stitches in the ball of my foot. I'll be doing lots of leg extensions and ham curls. Ill adapt my routine to doing seated exercises for a couple of weeks, and take advantage of it to try out a few new ideas. Just trying to keep going forward no matter what gets in the way.

I hope your cold is feeling better.

Ok guys, I did a bit of digging, and this is how it works.

That Dr. pushing the fat-loss drug is one of the first doctors to be qualified as a Obesity Medicine Physician by a new organisation, The Obesity Medicine Fellowship Council (OMFC), which formed in 2018. The OMFC has been adopted and branched throughout American Universities and uni hospitals like John Hopkins etc etc..

The OMFC aren't open about their funding, but because they legally have to disclose it, it didn't take much digging to find out that the foundation is guaranteed funding by the Denmark-based pharma giant, Novo Nordisk, who, yes, you guessed it, manufactures and sells the fat-loss drug this quack doctor is shilling - (along with a whole host of diabetes medicines, hormone regulators and other obesity-centric items).

Given how widespread the OMFC is throughout American universities, this must be funded in the range of hundreds of millions.

That's the network guys. The case is cracked, and this dishonest, corrupt doctor is only the first of many, many more so called 'Obesity Medicine Physicians' yet to come.

See link for Novo Nordisk's financial information https://www.novonordisk.com/news-and...html?id=143008

These social influences - like the mad-woman and her fat loss drug, who does not draw attention to lifestyle factors because she is part of normalising the false narratives that construct the structures which drive increasing obesity trends across society - are the tide one has swim against to actually be healthy. That's alarming to say because these are doctors we are talking about.

If we allow our children to be born and just live normally in this society according to these narratives, the statistics show that 1/3 of them at least will be little porkers on the way to being obese adults. More than 10% will be mentally ill before they are 10 years old, and more than 40% will be psychiatrically diagnosed as adults.

Then people like me, who know how reality works, have to counter false narratives and hope people won't be misguided by quackery, and it's actually a very simple thing. Eat fresh whole foods, do strenuous physical things and understand that life is inherently unexpected and will have good times while other times will be the pits.

Why is that hard? Because it's abnormal in society. If you are lucky enough to have a manual-labour job of some kind, then OK, but almost everyone is inside doing light work or just sitting at a desk, so then we have to actually make time and put in the effort to exercise. It becomes another goddam chore that has to be done. I don't want to exercise after a days work. I'm already tired and a little stressed out, so I just want to chill and Netflix like everyone else.

All these things are normal, but they driving us toward the car, the chair and the couch, so to turn all this around is an overwhelming task. It's not just 'an individual choice', because people just do what's normal. It's an entire life-span that has individual, familial, social, community, societal, political and ideological dimensions, and to turn the trend around we have to transform what is generally thought to be a normal way to live. Then, if what is normal today becomes weird tomorrow, that trend toward more and more obesity in younger and younger people will be reversed.

Then we will see obesity rates decline and fitness rates increase.

Hencewhy, a doctor who says they have a medicine for 'Obesity Disease', and markets it toward children, is lying on behalf of something systemically ingrained into the education environment itself. It's a trap that contains itself. This, along with 'mental health' stuff, and now the identity nonsense, is enough. It's neglectful to leave children in such care, and we've gotta get them out before they are harmed.

Also, people, if you have a commute and your job is hard, and you have family obligations on top of that, so you can't be stuffed with activity because enough is enough already, totally. I couldn't be stuffed either. If I had all that I wouldn't be regular at the gym either, but we first have to stop thinking that's normal and look at how twisted it actually is. Then, being as creative as we are, it doesn't have to be a trap that leads you toward disability in old age. Normalcy has to be physical truth based, like, I am a human (male or female) and this body wants to do hard things. If that's not the normal way of having joy in the body, it's over.

I had a really good chat to a customer yesterday. He’s a IT manager of radiology and he’s a busy man in high demand, travels to a number of work places connected in the state. He was sharing he loves the driving (which means he is on his bum a lot). He told me he packs his swag and fishing rods on his work travel days, and camps out, rather than being cooped in a motel. He enjoys nature, walks and fishes, sleeps under the stars and woken up by the sun. I said, “ you get it” your creating a healthy lifestyle while you work. Incorporating little things, that support your mundane regular have to do’s, into a daily practice, where all your needs are supported.

This is just one example of course. There are plenty of ways to find space in a work day to support your own well-being and health.

People generally who are commuting and working, stressed and overloaded, don’t have space, but if you can’t make space within, the ‘what you have to do’ yourself, your bosses and co workers are not going to save you. All they want is the job/s done.

In my job I create healthy space by making up my own healthy lunch box or I’ll take a walk to the healthiest cafe and buy there. Either way that space I give to my day, nourishes me, the walk is movement in my day. Other times I’ll do push up’s off the bench or throw a towel down and do some yoga or core exercises when I’m able too.

People will say, they don’t have time. They don’t have the energy, but if you can create a healthy space withjn the ‘have to’s’ it’s absolutely possible. All else is just excuses we tell ourselves. Your boss isn’t going to worry about your health and self care. He just wants the job done.

As for children and drugs, don’t get me started.

My wife and I both speak Spanish and are hooked on watching Mexican Novellas (what would be called a soap opera in the U.S)

These shows are full of stunningly gorgeous Latin woman and annoyingly handsome Latin men

Last night we were watching a new one called "Cabo" (set in Cabo San Lucas , Mexico) and I was struck by how much exercise and lifting culture is a really big thing with Latin actors and actresses'

This is a workout video for Mexican actress Barbara de Regil.....and this beautiful woman clearly knows her way around the gym! (oh man! Checkout those delts and glutes!)

And i got a kick out of how she does lunges on a hard floor
