“Eat Bad” is yours for free

So, after putting more effort into this project than most people would call sane, even had family members dismissing me as some kind of idiot, I tried giving it away for free and posted it on the /r/fitness subreddit only, with hopes it would finally meet the people who could make the most of it. All I got was abuse, rudeness, a ban, and a power trip…

I thought I was plenty gentle on the premise “Eat Bad” was being given away because I genuinely have given up. In the Reddit post I explained the time invested into this project and over $1000 spent in trying to advertise it.

Then I get an instant ban with the message: “Your SPAM isn’t welcome here”.

Seems a bit harsh! This was not SPAM. I’m not sending this out into people’s faces everywhere through email or posting it on tonnes of websites. It was only posted to one subreddit in the hopes of getting comments that I could follow which would possibly lead to helping someone. At this point my Reddit account is 9 years old, and since the ban mentions that if I have any questions I should contact the moderator team… Well I guess I have a query.

And all I gor was an immediate ban on contacting the moderator team for 72 hours. Notice the alarming language that follows. Apparently I “blew up” into the subreddit dumping a “commercial”.  Was also accused of telling them how to moderate their community, and my worthless opinion can go right back up my holes. Oh the violence of my brutal actions!

Hmm, no.  I was asking a question about my post, not about how they run your community. They didn’t even put the effort to see if it was SPAM or not. It isn’t. Here’s a quote for you: “I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.” –  Abraham H. Maslow (1962), Toward a Psychology of Being

You really lived up to the cliche: With limited tools, single-minded people apply them inappropriately or indiscriminately.

So here it is folks. “Eat Bad”, too edgy for Reddit!

Anyway, rant over. Download “Eat Bad” here for free…

The first pages of Chapter II – The Dreaded Exercise…

Another sample from the book. This time, the first pages from Chapter II…

Chapter II

The dreaded exercise

 “Start wide, expand further, and never look back.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger

Exercising your options...

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to spend 2 to 3 hours at the gym. Nor do you need to do aerobic exercise for an hour or more. You can if you want, and done properly it can be very healthy.The ideal weight training session should be shorter than 30 to 45 minutes. Any higher than that and your cortisol levels rise too much and your body will start eating your muscles for energy.

The first pages from the first Chapter of ‘Eat Bad’…

Continuing from yesterday, I’m posting more from the book…

Chapter I

Understanding Nutrition
And The Body

 

Happy is the one who knows the causes of things
in Georgics (c. 37BC), Virgil


Let’s diet!

Right. Where to begin? Diet? “I’m on a diet.” – Yep, 100% of the humans, animals, insects, and even plants are on a diet.

From Wikipedia: “Diet (nutrition), the sum of the food consumed by an organism or group”

Most people use this word in a phrase like: “I’m on a diet.”

The intended meaning: “I’ll do this thing for a short while, and then go back to stuffing my mouth full of cake, just like always!”

Dieting on the other hand is the deliberate selection and restriction of food in order to promote weight loss. And this is done incorrectly by the majority of people resulting in health complications.

Everyone seems to want their relief in a pill. Well, let me spare you years of trial and error and give you a wide embracing summary of the science of fad diets: THEY DON’T WORK!

The first pages of the book “Eat Bad”…

 The text below are the first pages from ‘Eat Bad’…

Welcome!

We know what we are,
but know not what we may be”
William Shakespeare

This guide started its life on the 25th of October of 2010 as an email I sent to a work colleague who wanted help to lose some of the extra blubber he was carrying around the midsection. Shortly after, other requests for help ensued and this text grew into a “part two”, and even a “part three”. Now it has grown many parts over.

We’ll spend most of our time focusing on nutrition, food, and chocolate mousse. Exercise will be more of a side note at the end.

In this journey we are going to tackle myths, learn cheat codes, smash misconceptions, and expand our horizons. Be ready for discovery.

The ‘Upside Down’ of losing weight…


Anyone who has tried to lose weight has noticed how quickly it returns once we stop dieting. We see this pattern many times over… Anyone who has tried to lose weight has noticed how quickly it returns once we stop dieting. We see this pattern many times over…

Most weight loss programs will cause an initial reduction in weight that bears ever diminishing results, and then we give up. Within a short period we regain the weight back, and immediately end up heavier than what we started while still eating less.
