How Obese and Overweight People Can Reverse Course Before It’s Too Late

from fat to fit naturally

71.6% of American adults are either overweight or obese, and it’s not just a superficial issue or a matter of attractiveness. It’s a real health problem facing the USA.

Obesity has been linked to 60 chronic diseases. About 500,000 Americans die from cancer every year, and about 1/3 of those are linked to excess body weight, poor nutrition and/or physical inactivity.

Obese people pay $1500 more out of pocket health expenses on average and also miss work 56% more often than people who are not obese.

Avoiding the Downward Spiral that Comes with Weight Gain

In physics, the property or tendency of a moving object to continue moving is known as momentum.

When you gain weight, it becomes even more difficult to lose weight or keep lost weight off. You might stop caring further about what you eat and you may even start to eat more unhealthy food. You may give up on working out completely because you think it will be impossible to reverse the uptick in pounds.

Then, as health problems compound, your medical condition can worsen relatively quickly in a short period of time, or aggravate any problems you might already be experiencing, like sleep apnea or snoring.

This is why it’s so important to turn things around while you still can. The good news is, for most people, you still can!

The Best Place to Start for Weight Loss is by Learning- and Doing

It’s important to understand some key aspects of fitness to succeed regardless of what your current level of exercise is. Understanding basic exercise principles is going to make working out easy and dare I say, fun?

Things that will rapidly accelerate your exercise and weight loss success:

  • Just moving your body alone burns calories, and moving for extended periods of time at increased intensity levels burns more calories.
  • Strength training is not going to make you bigger, it’s going to tone your body and cause you to look slimmer and more athletic.
  • Diet is probably 75% of everything. Counting calories and eating small meals throughout the day which are high in protein, fiber, moderate in fat, and low in sugar are the order of the day. Eating anything you want once or twice a week is good to keep you disciplined yet able to enjoy some culinary freedom.
  • The more different workouts you have in your arsenal, the easier it becomes to work out. Who wants to go to the gym every day? I don’t.

There Are Lots of Great Workouts You Can Do to Beat Obesity and Being Overweight

benefits of running for weight loss and calorie burn

Running is a classic for a reason. The best thing is, you can just set a timer and run for 5 minutes, then the next outing go for 10 minutes, then 15 minutes and so on. You’ll gain confidence as you improve, and you don’t have to worry if you are running fast enough. As long as you’re moving, you’re winning!

Need another reason to run? Running burns calories even after you’re done working out and targets belly fat with a vengeance!

Push-ups, pull-ups, and sit-ups. There’s a reason why the Marines use these exercises for their physical fitness test for all their personnel. If you can do pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and run for miles, you are more likely to be fit for combat. These basic movements are good indicators for a person’s endurance and overall fitness.

High Intensity Interval Training. These workouts are great. They don’t take a long time to complete, but their effectiveness relies on the concept of maximum intensity followed by a period of lesser intense activity, going back and forth for a set number of repetitions or sequences, and the results are tremendous.

My favorite is sprinting. I like to sprint all-out for about 40 or 50 yards, stop, then walk back and do it again 9 more times. By the 3rd or 4th one I’m saying “ok, why did I agree to do this again?”.

And always remember this, a workout doesn’t have to be very long for it to be effective. Just give it your all and be consistent, and great things will follow.

Flight Attendant Dies from Heart Attack Mid-Flight- Probably Wearing a Mandatory Mask

flight attendant dies of heart attack possibly wearing a mask

Joe Tormes, a 61-year old American Airlines flight attendant and US Coast Guard Veteran died suddenly while working aboard a flight headed out of Indianapolis.

Working alongside his wife who was also a flight attendant, he experienced a medical emergency and the immediate cause of death was later determined to be heart attack.

The question remains to be answered if flight attendant Tormes died due to a heart attack aggravated by the new company-mandated requirement for flight attendants to wear masks while working aboard American Airlines flights.

Valid Public Safety Concern for Mandatory Mask Orders

As Joe Tormes’s death shows, a potentially well-adjusted and otherwise healthy man died prematurely at the age of 61, considering the average life expectancy of a US Citizen is about 78 years.

While the public has been bombarded with messages from media and governments to wear a mask, not much thought has been seriously given to the negative health effects of long-term usage and mask wear.

More Bad News for People With Preexisting Respiratory and Heart Issues

Re-breathing CO2 can lead to issues like rapid heart beat, and that’s exactly what you’re doing when you’re wearing a mask- especially while working and exerting yourself.

It’s like sleep apnea and snoring, which don’t directly kill you but cause a lack of air getting to the lungs at night due to the constricting of the throat during sleep. This usually leads to coronary failure or heart attack.

What once seemed like common sense is now being criticized as a false claim. But is it scientific? Is it valid medical advice to demand someone wear a mask when they are nearing the age that heart attacks become a reality, especially when they work a physically demanding job at a high altitude?

Not Getting Enough Air Isn’t Helping: Common Sense Approach to Health

While it seems like common sense to me that your ability to breathe sufficiently is directly linked to all your organs functioning properly, that basic aspect of life has been forgotten by all the “experts” and “authority” issuing edicts for regular citizens to wear face masks in public and at work.

The truth is, not everyone has even learned to breathe properly anyway. This is one of the first things you realize when you take up Yoga. When the breathing is restricted unnaturally and you have “air hunger” beneath a mask, your breathing rhythm is interrupted, physical exertion leads to being lightheaded and disoriented, and eventually you are more prone to passing out due to a lack of air.

At this point, only you can protect your own health- refuse the mask

The last thing I want to say today is that you and only you have the ability to research the facts and rely on your own personal life experience. If you strongly feel that something is not good for you and it’s causing you a lot of pain and discomfort, this a great sign that it actually is.

Why are you no longer allowed to do what’s best for you? Because some people might die?

The masks don’t even work to prevent a virus which is much smaller from passing through. If they cause you shortness of breath and signs of passing out, it’s a good sign you’re not getting enough oxygen to your vital organs like your brain- and heart.

As someone who’s passed out before, I can tell you that what you feel doesn’t make you go “huh, that felt great. that was a good thing”. It alerts you to the fact you need to be very careful so you don’t let it happen again.

If your heart is beating faster because you’re having to work harder due to decreased air, then of course that puts you at the same risks of heart attack that you would experience if your body wasn’t getting enough air due to sleep apnea at night.

Decide what’s best for yourself.


World Governments Including the US and Australia Are Preventing People from Getting Rid of Bed Bugs Cheaply, Safely, and Effectively

According to “A Code of Practice For the Control of Bed Bug Infestations in Australia 3rd Edition“, Stephen L. Doggett reveals that as of 2010, exciting new potential treatments for bed bugs are emerging. This comes perhaps at just the right time, considering in the same document he explains that all current registered pesticides are ineffective against killing bed bug eggs.

While this may be news to many, the truth is the potential new treatment is anything but new, it’s been around for thousands of years, it’s just been kept from public knowledge due to excess government regulation and existing monopolies in the pesticide market.

Considering bed bugs were not really a common household pest until the last 20 years due to increased world travel, migration, and a ban on DDT going back 70 years in most developed nations, it’s time to ensure the public has the ability to deal with a bed bug infestation to reduce individual suffering as well as increase community wellness.

How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

For Australians (and anyone else), one of the best things you can do is to tidy up your home. Removing clutter reduces hiding places for bed bugs, but going by the numbers alone, bed bugs tend to live in the bed or bed frame about 70% of the time, while hiding in furniture, the headboard, or even cracks in the floor and wall the other 30% of the time.

Bed bugs are oval-shaped, brownish red bugs smaller than the fingernail on your pinkie finger that lead a nocturnal life of hiding in wait for a blood meal. When the lights go off, bed bugs usually meander out for a meal, leaving a trail of itchy red bites on the exposed areas of your skin while you sleep.

what do bed bug bites look like

While the bites are usually harmless, the stress and anxiety that bedbugs cause for their victims can work out to real harms on your health and finances. In some rare cases, bed bugs have been known to transmit Chagas disease, which is a disease passed by “kissing bugs” which are another type of crawling insect.

Next, folks will want to wash and dry their clothes and bed sheets on high heat, while vacuuming their floors, carpets, and bed frames or sofas, bagging up any and all molted bed bug shells from when bed bugs shed their old skin as they grow and progress in size.

The Potential New, All-Natural Bed Bug Insecticide You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

Doing the aforementioned steps is a great start, but most people will need some type of additional treatment against the bed bug infestation. For many, this may involve steam treatment, heat treatment, or even a professional bed bug exterminator.

inspecting a bed frame for bed bugs

The price of bed bug treatment remains incredibly high for the average person or family, with mainstream media reporting the cost as being anywhere from $500 AUD to $3,000 AUD.

But before you completely lose your mind over the high price, we’re going to give you an alternative, something that works for 70%+ (conservative estimate) of people who use it.

The Bed Bug Killer That Stays Good Forever, as Long as You Keep It Dry

One of the greatest things about this substance is that it stays good almost forever, and bed bugs have no resistance to it!

I’m talking about freshwater amorphous silica. While it is called by many other names, that is the scientific designation. It is comprised of the microscopic fossilized algae which have washed up on the shores of lakes, ponds, and other large bodies of water all around the globe.

This material is already present in the food supply, as farmers feed small doses to their livestock and cattle along with their normal food to control internal parasites, as the microscopic algae is able to cut and penetrate the exoskeletons of parasites, causing them to dehydrate and die- just the same with bed bugs.

Effective Bed Bug Prevention and Treatment for Australia

This type of natural bed bug killer can be found on the website Defensive End!, an American website that works with local suppliers all around the world to circumvent prohibitive government bureaucracy and provide a solution along with proper education as to its safe use.

get rid of bed bugs

All orders come with a free e-guide on how to get rid of the nasty bed bugs as well, along with links to video proof that it works.

Ensuring people have access to a solution that causes no side effects (just don’t breathe in a bunch of it, obviously, though even that would only likely cause a temporary negative effect) is something that I’ve been serious about for the better part of the last decade.

I sincerely hope everyone out there with a bed bug problem does their research and saves their money, because one thing’s for sure, the government’s not going to do it for you.

Absolute lies and propaganda by “Academia”: ‘It’s a fact that bed bugs can’t be eliminated’

Let’s put this one into the column of outright lies and stupidity.

Dr. Heather Lynch, or should I say, “Dr.” Heather Lynch, a lecturer at a University in Glasgow, has gone on record to say that “bed bugs can no longer be effectively eliminated.” The author of this article, Sarah Knapton, has gone further in a total lack of journalistic integrity in an attempt to support this theory without any evidence, claiming that “The Conversation”, a body of writing used and touted by “academics”, is the unquestionable word of God to back up the theory that you can’t get rid of bed bugs, ever.

This immediately pisses me off, and for a few reasons- the primary reason being it’s a total lie.

I have already stated across my many websites and blogs that the media, the government, and even existing pest control companies- are not going to tell you the solution for getting rid of bedbugs, even though yes, it exists, and no, it is not expensive. I myself have been personally helping people get rid of their bed bug problem for the last 3 years. I have received numerous emails from actual, real-life customers thanking me for helping them eliminate their bed bug problem so they can finally get back to sleep at night. If you want to see the proof, just click this link and scroll to the bottom of the page to read real reviews from real people:

Why are “educated” people so stupid when it comes to bed bugs?

So when 2 people claiming to be experts are really just a few lazy shmucks from “academia” who would rather just claim that there is no solution to bed bugs, a serious problem where over 10% of Philadelphia homes battle with bed bugs every night, a massive worldwide bedbug problem that plagues New York, Paris, the UK, Mexico, and Canada, to name a few- it sets me off a little, because I know that’s an outright lie. It’s a sad state when you have two enlightened Western female writers claiming to be some type of authority on entomology and life doing nothing but attempting to repackage apathy towards bed bug extermination into being smart somehow. It also shows the state of the Western world in my opinion, and is a big reason I left to live in Asia myself.

More stupidity when trying to eliminate bed bugs

I literally just filmed a video last month talking about the dangers of bed bugs often being from how people fail tremendously when attempting to get rid of them on their own. I mentioned how people set cars on fire by using alcohol. And in a recent story, over $250,000.00 in damages were reported after the fire department had to put out a blaze at a multi-family housing complex from someone spraying alcohol too close to a candle and the entire building going ablaze. This woman literally set her house on fire to try to eradicate bed bugs.

Putting an End to Snoring and Sleep Apnea by Losing Weight- Permanently and Naturally

over 70 percent of people with obstructive sleep apnea are obeseIt was just a year ago when I made a video where I conluded that getting a CPAP or surgery for the sleep disorder known as sleep apnea shoul be avoided if possible and uploaded it to YouTube.

Offering the results of my several hours (and years) of researching the topic of snoring and sleep apnea as well as alternatives to these expensive and often uneccesary “solutions”, I was faced with an immediate backlash.

“Are you a doctor?”, many commenters asked. “This guy has NO CLUE what he’s talking about” was a common response in the comments field of my YouTube video. And yet, I had merely come to the same conclusion as many medical doctors and the National Health Institute itself: the majority of Americans are overweight or obsese, and losing weight will have an immediate and drastic effect on reducing sleep apnea to an extent that surgery (often ineffective with serious permanent negative consequences) or the CPAP (once you start, you really can’t stop) were not necessary.

Original Video:

Why People Refuse to Lose Weight for their Sleep Apnea

It comes down to a basic denial of reality. The reality is that most people who have sleep apnea due to being overweight (about 70% of sleep apnea is just weight related alone) refuse to do anything about it. They are simply too intellectually lazy to acknowledge the truth of the matter, because that would mean they would then be taking responsibility for a preventable condition, rather than playing the victim- which is easy.

Dr. Lawrence Epstein of Harvard Medicine has stated that if people lost only 10% of their body weight, sleep apnea and many of its resulting serious health consequences would simply go away.

People Put Undue Faith in Surgery to Stop Sleep Apnea

Again, Americans have almost become cult followers of the medical industry, and would likely jump off a building if a Doctor simply writes it down on a prescription pad. “What do you mean don’t jump off a building?! Are YOU a doctor?!”. And yet, many sleep apnea sufferers automatically think surgery is the solution for sleep apnea, when even the evidence states that even oral appliances are more effective than sleep apnea surgery.

That’s right, even an over-the-counter FDA cleared stop snoring mouthpiece could be a better, safer, healthier, and more effective solution to snoring and sleep apnea.

And yet, many people simply refuse to believe it.

Strange Times for People Who Snore

Snoring and sleep apnea prevent people from getting good sleep at night, and yet these same people are “sleeping” on the most obvious solution. It’s as if they heard that Artificial Intelligence wanted to merge with mankind, and they are already there, donut and smartphone in hand, ready to be assimilated into the Borg.

But this attitude of rejecting alternative solutions simply because they require proactive moves on the part of snorers is only going to cause them to experience more problems down the road like cardio vascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and degenerative brain and other inflammatory diseases that could have been prevented by making the conscious decision to address the elephant in the room- a poor diet and sedentary lifestyle.

Other Solutions for Weight Loss in Sleep Apnea Patients

People who are overweight need to get a grip on portion control first and will power. The best way to do this is to try Intermittent Fasting. This is where you fast for 16 hours a day, and then allow yourself to eat during the 8 hour window only. It has an amazing set of health benefits besides just weight loss and appetite control. Hormone production, regulation of glucose and insulin levels, as well as decreasing inflammation- are all sidef benefits of intermittent fasting, not including any weight loss itself!

The next and obvious step is exercise, and getting regular portions of it. This means 3 times a week minimum, and should include activities like anaerobic and aerobic exercise. This could be doing 5 sets of pushups, pullups, box jumps, leg lifts, and dips, or jogging for 30 minutes straight at your own pace.

Regardless of what you do, do something! Do anything.

Just don’t blame me because I don’t wear a white coat and carry around a stethoscope.

What Both Dog Sitters and Customers Can Learn from Reviews Reviews: Dog Sitting and Dog Walking for Extra Money from HomePeople with dogs often need to find a dog sitter for various reasons, from going out for a night on the town, to taking a trip out of town for several days, and they will inevitably turn to the world wide web and the ever popular Google search to successfully complete their task.

This means that a web searcher is likely going to eventually see an ad or even the website for show up in their search results. Clicking on will bring the site visitor to a user-friendly interface where they can input the dates for which they require a dog sitter and dog boarding, enter their city and state, and then be able to peruse the search results within the site in order to find a pet sitter.

But before you think it’s just a stroll down Candycane Lane, you’ll want to know just a little bit more about Rover before you either decide to become a customer or even a dog sitter or dog walker on their service, in order to protect yourself, your dog, your home, or even- your income!

Just like these sitter reviews say, is probably not your best bet if you are serious about having a long-term doggy daycare business from home. It is the epitome of putting all your eggs in one basket.

The Truth About Honest Reviews from a Customer and Dog Sitting Consultant


In the above video, I describe the lesser known details of, from their extremely litigious ways of going around to local towns and using their teams of lawyers to rewrite laws that shut down already existing dog sitters operating out of their homes, to the fact that does very little if anything to ensure the safety of your dog as a customer under the care of one of their “independent contractors”.

Recently, a women in Colorado lost her longtime friend and K9 companion when the sitter absentmindedly left her small 15 lb dog in the backyard with a 150 lb Mastiff, which killed her dog with one bite to the neck. responded by apologizing for her loss, then wished her a good day– typical of the scumbags at is not much better for their dog sitters and dog walkers, either. offers ZERO compensation for the dog sitter if a customer’s dog ruins their house and property, which often occurs when a dog pees on or chews up a sofa or quilt at the sitter’s home. Rover sitters will be removed from their app’s search if they ask the customer to pay for the damages also. plays favorites with its sitters, and silences the negative reviews of its customers. I have had dog sitters communicate with me as if I worked for them- “Hey when are you coming to get your dog” on the morning after a night sitting. When I left a bad review, Rover removed it. They can’t have their most attractive female sitters with any bad reviews for their total lack of respect, empathy and customer service. does nothing to ensure their sitters are at home supervising the dogs, or keeping them separated. Many sitters will leave strange dogs with each other which leads to conflict and dogs getting bit or hurt while they are away. Many Rover sitters are merely college age people who lock a bunch of dogs up in their house, then go out drinking and partying. Hopefully your dog survives the oversight and negligence but there are no guarantees, and Rover will not give a flip if something happens to your dog, as you can tell by the non-heartfelt apology they issue to the poor lady whose dog was killed in a totally preventable scenario.

Many sitters don’t even realize the basic best practices of dog sitting and dog watching, like separating dogs during feeding times, keeping dogs of different weight classes away from each other to prevent fatalities of smaller dogs, or how to spot aggressive dogs and isolate them from endangering other dogs.

Other dogs have been lost by Rover’s dog walkers because they failed to take extra safety considerations, were not paying attention, or did not realize that they should have been using a hands free dog leash for walking and training dogs in order to prevent the dog from running away. is hit or miss at best

I have encountered flighty and unreliable sitters on several instances when searching for a Rover sitter in Phoenix AZ as well as South Dakota when I needed a dog sitter badly. When the weekend comes, the older female Rover sitters tend to be non-responsive, or put all social calendars as top priority over dog sitting much to your inconvenience.

After’s lawyers contacted and harassed me with threats of a lawsuit, I realized quickly they were not a dog loving organization that you might expect from a dog service business. If anything, they are in it completely for the money, and often resort to fascistic tactics like monitoring all communications between dog sitters and dog sitter customers to ensure that no under-the-table deals are being made outside their app or website by regular customers and their dog sitters.

Keeping all this in mind, may not always be your best option. Always seek out professional, competent dog boarding businesses and individuals over in order to find the most suitable dog sitter for your furry best friend.

Running with your dog

Exercise dog leashWhen starting Running with your dog the first objective is to find out how well they will listen to you. Walk them forward about 10 feet and turn around and walk the other direction. Repeat the process a few times and already know how responsive the dog will be. If the dog follows your lead backing up to your side or slightly behind, they are at their most focused on my movement and will likely be following me well.

While you are running with a dog, both of you begins to produce endorphins. These endorphins bind to receptor points in the brain and as a result, they cause that euphoric feeling. Everyone will experience this euphoric state differently and to different levels, and some athletes have even become addicted to their runners high.

The dog has to be loose-leash trained

In order to run with your dog, the dog has to be loose-leash trained. There is no safe alternative, your dog will risk neck injury if you pull on them too many times and it makes the experience bad for both of you. You need to be in tune with your dog, watching their stride and paying attention to their gait and form periodically.

The more attentive you are to the dog your running the better the outcome. Dogs untrained in running are known for stopping to sniff or go to the bathroom so periodically checking in on them is a must, usually go about 10 seconds maximum without checking in with the dogs you run.

When a dog gets over excited and bites the Hands free leash for dog training, do not join in on the game and play tug-of-war. Instead, stop and wait for them to drop the leash and look for your approval. Do not immediately jump back into running as this will amplify the hyper arousal symptoms again leading to the same bad behavior.

If you want to train it out of the dog you can use this technique to trigger the behavior and then stop, again forcing them to relax. This is an effective method for helping your dog control these issues but for the sake of getting the most out of your dog’s workout, it is more efficient to walk them for a short time will help in dog walking and then slowly ease back into your jog.

Natural happy feeling

Remember what to look for when deciding to run with a dog, there are breeds that run better for longer periods of time and there are others that do better with bursts of high energy. Hound breeds and other dogs used for hunting are typically in the endurance category, although there are some dogs like Doberman Pinscher’s, Siberian Huskies and Dalmatians in this category as well.

Most other dogs fit into the fast bursts of speed category. Certain breeds like Pugs and Bull Dogs are brachycephalic. The flattened nose and face cause them to overheat very soon so they shouldn’t run too far too fast.

Running with your dog will provide him with that natural happy feeling, and will reduce the stress and anxiety in his life. So, grab your dog, grab his leash and don’t walk – run

Bed Bug Bites & Symptoms: How to Tell if You Have Bed Bugs

How to get rid of bed bug bites

Bed bug exterminators can cost you several hundred to thousands of dollars, which is why landlords are so hesitant to attempt to deal with the problem. Governments are usually clueless on how to deal with the problem as well.

Bed bug sprays are often ineffective, or only kill the reddish brown tiny parasites bedbugs that you can see, leaving the nymphs and their eggs unaffected. This is why you have to use a smart solution like Defensive End! which relies on residual and passive prevention rather than running and gunning down the bedbugs when they are visible, out and about.

How to find bed bugs

Do an active search of your bedroom. Check the bed, mattress, box spring, furniture. Check your sofa, carpet, dresser drawers, the headboard, and cracks in the walls and baseboards. Bed bugs like most bugs that enjoy biting humans are attracted to your unique scents and smells, as well as the carbon dioxide you exhale during the night while breathing. This is how to find bed bugs in your home or workplace.

Don’t rely on a bedbug exterminator. They will overcharge you and put you at their behest. This means they will often become as parasitic as the cimex lectularius bedbugs themselves, sucking you dry not of blood, but of liquid assets!

Bed bugs hide away from the light during the day, so you really have to think like a bed bug to find one. Often times they are hiding within the walls of apartment units or homes, just waiting for dusk to come along as they put on their bibs and get ready to chow down on tasty human blood.

And you thought the only blood suckers were the tax man?
