Health is Very Important
 
Sounds like good advice to me!!

Q. I'VE HEARD THAT CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE CAN PROLONG LIFE. IS THIS
TRUE?
A. Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it.....don't
waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your
heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the
life of a car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q. SHOULD I CUT DOWN ON MEAT AND EAT MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES?

A. You should grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and
corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So steak is nothing more than an
efficient mechanism of delivering vegtables to your system. Need grain? Eat
chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable).
And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowwnce of
vegetable products.

Q. SHOULD I REDUCE MY ALCOHOL INTAKE?

A. No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brady is distilled wine, that
means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the
goodness that way. Beer is also made of grain. Bottoms up.

Q. HOW CAN I CALCULATE MY BODY/FAT RATIO?

A. Well, if you have a body and you have body fat, your ratio is one to
one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE ADVANTAGES OF PARTICIPATING IN A REGULAR EXERCISE
PROGRAM?

A. Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No
pain......Good.

Q. AREN'T FRIED FOODS BAD FOR ME?

A. YOU'RE NOT LISTENING !!!!. Foods are fried these days in vegetable
oil. In fact they are permeated in it. How can getting more vegetables be
bad for you?

Q. WILL SIT-UPS PREVENT ME FROM GETTING A LITTLE SOFT AROUND THE MIDDLE?

A. Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should
be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q. IS CHOCOLATE BAD FOR ME?

A. Are you crazy? Hello......Cocoa beans......another vegetable!!! It's
the best feel good food around.

Q. IS SWIMMING GOOD FOR YOU FIGURE?

A. If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q. IS GETTING IN-SHAPE IMPORTANT FOR MY LIFESTYLE?

A. Hey! ' Round ' is a shape!
