BEACH CRUISER DIET 3
Exercise Not Diet
Exercise blows. Hell, I was twenty years old and it sucked to exercise. I could jog an hour and get those good brain chemicals flowing and as soon as I had an excuse I’d go back to suckling a beer and smoking a pack of cigarettes. Which don’t exactly release endorphins. Of course, now that I’m fifty I don’t have those bad habits anymore. If I did I probably wouldn’t be writing this ( poor personal habits being contagious, I’d never force myself to sit in front of a computer and tap away with one finger at a mad rate-not to mention I might be either dead of lung cancer or liver failure or bankrupt and living under a bridge without electricity due to the insane cost of tobacco because of that anal whore for the Yankee’s, Clinton ). But now I exercise like a bastard. Yes, my job is a lot of heavy lifting. As if I needed yet another way of displaying my perfection and magnanimousness, I tote crap about all day long at the Food Bank for the ravenous poor. My muscle tone is better now than when I was in the military. But the bike riding is what keeps me in such good shape. Cardio speaking, anyway. I don’t know what burns more calories. Biking is fifty calories a mile ( personally I think that is higher as I have a single speed which requires more effort, but we’ll go with the standard here ) and I have no idea what lifting weight does. I can’t guess, because the lifting is in spurts of activity, not constant. I also walk about all day long.
In short, I have zero scientific data to back up my claim that riding a bike will solve ALL your weight loss goals. I could be burning three times the calories from just a bike rider alone. I can tell you however, that exercise in my case IS much better than a diet. My body regulates itself. I’m told when to eat more, or far less fat, when to eat more starch, etc. I can eat as many calories from desert as from dinner and I’m not gaining weight. I know my heart is in decent shape, and I know I’m eating well because I don’t crave junk food other than as treats ( in other words, I prefer wholesome unprocessed foods and the junk food is a treat rather than a filler ). If, on the other hand, I was NOT exercising and just limiting my calories, I know that my body would be in panic mode and it would play havoc with my cravings and I would want lots of junk food because it is simple sugars more easily processed for calories. That is just common sense as far as I’m concerned, and you can take that as gospel or not. I am NOT a weight lose professional. And I think that is a good thing since I go by actually trial and error and experience and not some drivel dished out at University which might be full of crap ( like the medical establishment and its clearly erroneous stand on approved cancer treatments ) or not.
