C. Back To Basics
- What are carbohydrates or carbs?
● Carbs area component in everything we eat, mostly.
● Carbs can be categorized into two types: simple and complex.
● Simple: These carbs are usually labeled as “bad carb’s.” They are made mostly from processed flour and contain added sugars. They give very little nutrition to the body. They often give the person who eats them a burst of energy, later followed by an energy crash.
● Some sources of simple carbs are corn syrup, candy, soft drinks, and fruit drinks.
● Complex carbohydrates are long branches of fructose, glucose, and sucrose molecules organized into more complex structures, such as starches or other “High carbohydrate” foods.|
● Starches are polysaccharides and are composed as huge chains of various sugar molecules that get broken down and metabolized into massive component groups of mainly glucose and sucrose molecules. See risks of carb overload in lower bullet point|
● Some sources of starchy foods are potatoes, bread, cereals, rice, pasta, and beans.
● But like anything too much of anything is a bad thing.
o Carbs, specifically glucose and sucrose, as a general category cause massive spikes in insulin levels which, over time, can lead to insulin resistance and the body essentially “Runs out” of insulin and can lead to diabetes.
D. Alpha Chow Infomercials
- Contacted Arrow and speaking to him about an interview.
- Short Version By Arrow: “The short version of the story is that a writer from a company that films shorts for Adult Swim contacted me because he wrote a script involving a buff mascot costume. He apparently found me from a fursuit parade video. After reading the script, I agreed, and flew down for a day-shoot. It was an amazing experience – I was treated as “talent” as much as any of the other actors in the short, and everyone was friendly and fun. I got to be in prosthetics and I got to say a line on camera. The complete story is below!”

C. 11 Fitness Myths
1. Sit Ups And Crunches Are Most Effective For Six-Pack Abs
o Truth: Moves like planks and push ups are much more effective at carving out your ab muscles than sit ups and crunches. |This doesn’t make sense. At all.|
2. Cardio Burns The Most Calories
o Truth: If you want to burn more fat overall -- and keep burning it long after your workout is over. |This last part is an effect of lean muscle tissue, not cardio. Cardio’s effects of fat burning are due to metabolic processes during actual activity.|
3. Stretching Is Best Before Working Out
o Warming up with cardio before a workout is much more effective than stretching. | Warm up, stretch, work out, stretch, cool down|
4. Weight Lifting Will Bulk You Up
o Women aren't built to bulk up the same way men do; females don't have the testosterone levels necessary.
5. You Need Eight Glasses Of Water Daily
o Drink as much water as you need for clear urine. |Urine opacity and hydration levels aren’t actually related, but there is a very very crude correlation|
6. Go Gluten-Free To Lose Weight
o Unless you have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, there's no need to go gluten-free. |This isn’t technically true. True, there is a gluten-free fad going on, but at the same time, diets high in gluten are scientifically shown to increase rates of diabetes, obesity, and are directly correlated with the instances of auto-immune disease and neural degenerative diseases such as alzheimer’s, parkinsons, and a myriad of others.|
7. It's Too Late To Get In Shape
o It's never too late to begin a healthier routine. If you don't exercise at all, start by walking 5 to 10 minutes a day, gradually increasing the time and adding in strength training after 1 to 3 months.
o Moderation is the key here.
8. You Need A Long Workout
o Your body starts burning fat as soon as you start exercising |Incorrect, there are two energy systems that need to be exhausted before fat begins to metabolize.|
9. You Need A Gym Membership To Get Results
o You don't need a gym membership or major equipment to work out. A yoga mat, resistance band or even a chair are all you need to get a full-body workout at home.
10. If You're Not In Pain, You're Not Working Hard Enough
o While muscle soreness is to be expected during a workout, especially if you're trying a new exercise or lifting a heavier weight, but if you're in serious pain, stop what you're doing. It doesn't mean you're working harder -- it means you're probably injuring yourself.
11. More Exercise Is Always Better
o Intense exercising every single day will burn you out, making you less likely to maintain a routine. Your muscles need time to recover.
