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!

Why Do the Good Things Hafta Be So BAD! Sugar Blues...

Hey, it's Marco! Is sugar a sweet old friend that is secretly plotting your demise? There is a vast sea of research suggesting that it is. Science has now shown us, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that sugar in your food, in all its myriad of forms, is taking a devastating toll on your health. The single largest source of calories for Americans comes from sugar—specifically high fructose corn syrup. Here's a quick "looksee!"

*In 1700, the average person consumed about 4 pounds of sugar per year. (Ah...the good ole days!)
*In 1800, the average person consumed about 18 pounds of sugar per year. (I can live with that...)
*In 1900, individual consumption had risen to 90 pounds of sugar per year. (First J-Lo Booty spotted!)
*In 2009, more than 50 percent of all Americans consume one-half pound of sugar PER DAY—
translating to a whopping 180 pounds of sugar per year! (Got Diabetes?)
Sugar is loaded into your soft drinks, fruit juices, sports drinks, and hidden in almost all processed foods, even cigarettes and McDonald's Fries! —From bologna to pretzels to Worcestershire sauce to cheese spread. (People really eat cheese spread?) And now most infant formula has the sugar equivalent of one can of Coca-Cola, so babies are being metabolically poisoned from day one if taking formula.
No wonder there is an obesity epidemic in this country. And you wonder why you're Fat!
