Connor McCreaddie 217 pounds and only 8 Years old

Eight Years Old and 217lbs: Connor McCreaddie's Struggle - Associated Content

Ok. This situation deserves a mention on my blog because it has the potential to become tragic due to bad eating habits and non-existent exercises...

In case you haven't heard or seen the news lately, the child care officials in England had threatened to remove Connor from his mother due to his high level of obesity. To be it in perspective, he weighs more than 5 times the average weight of another child his age!

So mom is being accused of maltreating her kid. And the article does mention she loves him so much that she will give him whatever he wants to eat. And what kid is going to turn down junk food to eat healthy foods?


And the article mentions his exercise routine is non existent.

Well surprise...

You see, the obesity epidemic doesn't strike just adults -- it can even strike kids who shun the ordinary things kids like to do and eat all the junk food he wants.

Is his mother to blame? Well, let's get real here... she isn't putting her foot down and saying, "Eat your broccoli or No dessert for you tonight young man!"

But I am glad the government officials are not taking Connor away from his mom. I think that is extreme and would be more damaging.

However, I do think Connor's mom should definitely get some coaching how to take care of Connor and bring his weight down safely. She will have to learn how to be strong and disciplined.

Not an easy task...

What do you think?

Review of Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle Written by Tom Venuto

Tom Venuto is a competitive natural bodybuilder. He knew the secrets to fat loss because all the bodybuilders know it. So he decided to write a book about how ANYONE -- Bodybuilders or regular everyday people like you and me -- can lose our fat and gain muscles.

And the secret to fat loss? It is simple -- gain muscles!!!

Because muscles burn more calories than fat. If done right, your new muscles will burn fat while you are sleeping -- while you are watching tv -- while you are working in front of your computer...

So you need to learn how to grow mucles. However, it is not easy. You will have to eat six meals a day. You will have to educate yourself what is good quality foods to eat. And you will have to determine which exercises that are efficient and doesn't waste your valuable time.

Well, with Tom Venuto's book, Burn the Fat Feed the Muscles, there is no guessing. Tom will tell you flat out what to do. He won't confuse you like most of the weight loss products out there in the oversatuated market does.

Check out my review of Tom's book here:

Anna Nicole Smith & the TRIMSPA Controversy

Anna Nicole Smith: TRIMSPA or Slim-Fast?

Anna Nicole Smith. How she seemed to love to fascinate and shock people! Playmate of the year in the 90's, sleazy reality tv show, drugs, fluctuating weight, and the question of the father of her 5 month daughter.

Anna Nicole Smith was the spokesperson for diet product company, Trimspa. And both are being sued in a class-action lawsuit alleging their marketing of a weight loss pill is false or misleading.

And to top all that, Anna Nicole Smith was seen with products from Slim Fast. I assume that TRIMSPA has been very unhappy about this and may have been considering the option of firing her.

But Anna Nicole Smith's death has made the point moot.

What do you think? Did diet products work for you?

88 Years Young and Still Going Strong!

Seniors find anti-aging elixer: Exercise

While statistics show the older people get, the less likely they are to exercise, a lot of seniors are bucking this trend.

All I can say about this is "Good for them!!!"

I was in California last week for my best friend's wedding. I have pictures to prove it, but she was definitely NOT acting her age! She was dancing and laughing. And she is 88 years old.

I teased my friend and asked him when is his mother going to "act her age." :)

"Never," he replied with a grin.

My point is don't let age limit your life. In fact, start now so that when you get older, your body doesn't have all the years of bad nutrition and lack of exercise breaking it down.
