*Here it goes...*
Question: Cardiovascular exercises prolong life ... Is it true?
*Answer: Your heart was made to beat a certain number of times and go ... Do not waste those beats in exercises ... Eventually, everything is spent. Accelerating your heart will not make you live longer: That's like saying that you can prolong the life of your car by driving faster. Do you want to live longer? Take a nap.*
Q: Should I stop eating red meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
*A: You need to understand the logistics of efficiency. What does the Lamb eat? Grass, fodder and legumes. What are those things? Vegetables! Then a barbecue or a barbecue is nothing more than an effective mechanism to place vegetables in your system. Do you need grains? Eat chicken!*
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol consumption?
*A: No way. Wine is made of fruit. Brandy is a distilled wine, which means that they take the water out of the fruit and thus one takes advantage of it better. Beer is also made from grains ... Get drunk*
Q: What are the advantages of a regular exercise program?
*A: My philosophy is: If nothing hurts you, you're fine and you do not have to do anything.*
Q: Are fried foods harmful?
*A: YOU ARE NOT LISTENING TO ME !! Today the food is fried in vegetable oil. These foods are literally impregnated with "vegetable" oil ... How can something vegetable be harmful to your health?*
Q: Do push-ups help reduce fat?
*A: Absolutely NO! Exercising a muscle only causes it to increase in size.*
Q: Does chocolate do badly?
*A: Are you crazy? Cocoa, another vegetable! It is a very good meal to be happy.*
*Life should not be a trip to the grave, with the intention of getting there safe and sound with an attractive body and well preserved ... Better to exceed: Beer in one hand, appetizer in the other, much sex and a body totally spent, completely used and screaming: It was worth it !! WHAT TRIP!!!*
- If walking was healthy, the postman would be immortal.
- The whale swims all day, only eats fish, only takes water ... and is fat !!
- The rabbit eats well, runs, jumps and lives only 15 years.
- The turtle does not run or do anything ... *And lives 450 years!*
If you can not find half of your orange, do not be discouraged ... Look for half a lemon, add rum, ice, coke, and ...
*Enjoy your Life !!!*
