A calorie is not a unit of mass. It’s a unit of heat potential.
Calories don’t work without cellular pressure gradients.
Try to light a fire without oxygen.
In the first panel of the June 6, 2001 cartoon strip Foxtrot, 2 boys are blowing bubblegum, and the bubbles are very tiny.
In the second panel, the bubbles become huge.
In the third panel, one boy remarks to the other, “You gotta love these low-pressure weather fronts.”
Weight Control Tip #7 …
There’s weight control advice hidden in the biotypology systems of both German psychiatrist Ernst Kretschmer (1888-1964) and American psychologist William Herbert Sheldon (1898-1977).
Dr. Kretschmer’s Asthenic, Athletic, and Pyknicconstitutional classificationsare VERY similar to Dr. Sheldon’s somatotypes of Ectomorph, Mesomorph, and Endomorph.
The Ectomorph is embryologicallyrelated to the ectoderm and the skin and nervous system formed from it.
The Mesomorph is embryologically related to the mesoderm and the skeleton, skeletal muscles, connective tissue, heart, and blood circulation system formed from it.
The Endomorph is embryologically related to the endoderm and the digestive system (including the liver) and lungs formed from it.
Muscle tissueis precipitatedfrom the HEART, and so is STRUCTURAL WEIGHT.
Conventional bodybuilding opinion recommends sets of 8 to 12 reps to build muscle.
Well, a bicyclist entered the health food store I managed in the 1980s and re-educated me.
Observing hisHUGE gastrocnemius/soleus muscles, I remarked, “You didn’t get those calves from riding a bicycle. Do you work out at the gym?”
“Oh, but I DID get them from riding a bike,” he rejoined. “But you’ve got to know HOW to ride a bike to get them.”
I worked out at a gym for months and couldn’t get my lats to grow an inch.
Then I started doing the breaststroke in the ocean for a half-hour a day, and ended up with lats that looked like BAT WINGS. :)
Ladies, a daily or semi-daily blood flow surge can enlarge your breasts.
Sexual arousal pumps up your breasts due to their thickened capillary and lymphatic network.
The more regularyour arousal, the moreyour breastsSTAY pumped up.
Sexual arousal doubles or triples the width of the vaginal wall, so you may also end up with a super hoo-hah if you sharea decade or sowith a sexually compelling partner (or skip the partner in favor of a Taoist meditation technique involving the “Red Dragon”).
Weight Control Tip #8 …
The latest scientific research (I can’t vouch for it but it seems to make sense) claims you can gain weight by watching “The Biggest Loser.”
Thinking about physical exercise makes you eat more.
In case you don’t choose to gain weight, maybe you better watch “The Biggest Loser” from your Stairmaster. :)
