Bond: It takes a Guinness to get to the gym

September 19, 2007

Daniel Craig is JACKED.  He got this way for his role as 007 in Casino Royale, and is in the process of muscling back up for the next Bond film.

However, A source at Bond producers Eon says that Craig isn’t finding hitting the gym easy, and the only comfort he finds is in the regular pints of Guinness after a workout.”


The motivation to workout from the Guinness clearly outweighs the 210 calories and 17 grams of carbs  per pint; whatever it takes.


Is she that fat?

September 10, 2007


Come on now, she is not that fat, is she?  The comments about her physical appearance have ranged from saying that she no longer has “taut abs” to that she has a “beer belly.”  True, she is not as taut as she once was, but she by no means has a beer belly.  She has had two kids, and is curvy.

Diet soda is just as bad for you as regular soda?

July 24, 2007

Diet soda is just as bad for you as regular soda is. According to a BU Medical School study, “People who drank one or more diet sodas each day developed the same risks for heart disease as those who downed sugary regular soda, a large but inconclusive study found. The results surprised the researchers who expected to see a difference between regular and diet soda drinkers.”

Could this be possible? Other studies indicate that there is a very high correlation between being overwewight and drinking diet soda.

Runners always find dead bodies

July 17, 2007

I love my Pearl Izumi cycling shoes.  They are pretty old school, ugly, and don’t breathe.  I still love them. What I didn’t realize is that they are more than just a cycling brand.  And now they are really pushing this angle.
