Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

How many sugar packets are in that biggie size soda?

Hey, it's Marco! Would you believe a staggering 26 packets in just one large soda!
The fact is that a diet filled with refined sugars and high-glycemic simple carbs causes the inflammation that’s at the center of our centuries biggest health threat…the triple epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. And you wonder why your significant other "gots" dat big ole bootay!
Added sugars have no nutritional value other than providing calories. Research shows that high added sugar intake is inversely associated with reduced intake of several vitamins, minerals and fiber. In other words, people eat sugary foods and drinks instead of nutrition-dense foods. Other research shows that because calories in liquid form are less satiating than in solid food, they increase the total amount of calories people consume each day. But worse, consumption of added sugars is linked to weight gain, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We’ve simply got to start making better choices for ourselves…and our kids…because lives may literally depend on it. Oh, and get this, the average person in America takes in about 150 pounds of sugar each year! Sweet! Add the fact that our water is contaminated with fluoride and you'll see why my Dentist drives a nicer car than I do!
