Obesity, Occupy Wall Street & Steve Corbett


As I was mulling over today’s posting a patient of mine said, “Okay Doc, how are you going to tie these topics together?”  I told her to check back later today.

South Main Street, from Public Square, Wilkes-...

First off, I know it seems like I listen to Steve Corbett’s radio entertainment show more than I should, but I don’t.  It just so happens that WILK talk radio is my favorite local radio station and every now and again, I have the radio tuned in when I start my car or enter a room. This happened on Friday, as I was driving home after my news interview on SSPTV Channel 13 concerning childhood obesity.  I was coming over the mountain and back down into the valley when I turned my radio back on and it was already set to 103.1FM.  I reached down to change the station when I heard the caller mentioned he was going to be at an Occupy Wilkes-Barre event. Since I had been kind of following the Occupy Wall Street movement on the news, I stayed on the station.  It seems that every person I had listened to be interviewed really didn’t have a clue as to why they were taking part of the Occupation and this caller was not any different.  He muddled through a couple of, for lack of a better word, reasons; like “I’m tired of making a hundred dollars a week.  Rich people aren’t fair.  People with money don’t deserve it.”  And some other mumbo-jumbo that a third grader would have been embarrassed to articulate.

I was just about to hit the scan button when good old Steve chimed in, he tried to pin him down to a reason, but funny thing was that Corbett, while encouraging him, couldn’t offer up a single reason himself.  Then he gave this young man some of the most ridiculous advice I have ever heard in my life.  Advice so ludicrous, that I have concluded that the unicellular amoeba that causes dysentery may generate a greater intellectual output than Steve Corbett; although they both produce the same end result.

What was this piece of wisdom from the sage Mr. Corbett?  Brace yourself for this one, even I who hold Steve Corbett in low regard was shocked by this.  I guess Corbett was trying to quote pseudo-intellectual Woody Allen in some sort of way. He told the young man he did NOT need any definitive goals, nor did he need a plan.  No he told this young man, a man obviously without direction, to just show up.  Really Steve? So, this person and others, should just show up and work toward no goal, no defined end result?

I can hear my regular readers out there now.  You all know where I am going with this don’t you?  For those who are not regular readers, you are probably wondering; What does this have to do with weight loss, fitness or obesity? The answer is a resounding — EVERYTHING!

Fitness

There is no greater path to failure in reaching fitness and weight loss than not setting goals, nor devising a plan.  I can’t tell you how many people I have observed over the years who just show up at the gym.  They go through the motions, moving from machine to machine and exercise to exercise with out rhyme or reason.  They don’t have a specific routine, they don’t have regular days, as I said they just show up.  And the sad fact is that the only thing that is leaner for their efforts are their bank accounts.  They make no improvement in their physique, they don’t drop any weight and they don’t improve their fitness level.

Achievement badge for showing up!

These folks that just show up apply a similar haphazard and lackadaisical approach to their diet.  Now remember a diet is not defined as a plan you go on and off; diet for our purposes, is whatever food you shove down your gullet. If you eat a low carbohydrate, close to natural state diet, you have a good diet.  If the food you consume is full of starches, sugars, refined and prepackaged foods; you have a garbage diet.  Either way, those that just show up usually will claim to be on a diet, although they never tell you which type of diet.  They are quiet humorous to watch, because I am pretty sure that no matter what school of thought you apply to diet and fitness — the foods Steve Corbett regularly endorses: pastries, rolls, pizza, beer and wine aren’t exactly what is considered healthy eating.  But it seems that those who simply show up for eating and exercise tend to consume a very poor diet.  They too, make no improvement to their overall health and fitness, and if they are attempting to lose weight, well guess what?  That’s right, they don’t drop any weight either.

The Steve Corbett’s of the world are much more concerned with whining and complaining about what others may have than what they themselves are doing.  They are more than willing to engage in negative rhetoric and not only harm their own well being with negativity, but inflict it, like a contagion, upon others.

You can make a difference in your life by doing more than just showing up. You can take charge of your life, you can take command of you physical well being and the result will be an improved quality of life.

I am also returning to the cyber world next week.  This blog will be updated several days a week, I will resume hosting my program on blog talk radio, Wednesday’s at 11:30am and the very popular Friday blog; Enemies of the State of Health & Fitness will return this week. If you recall our first edition featured prominent national talk show host; Rush Limbaugh and for those of you in NEPA L A Tarone.

I am also getting ready to start promoting my book; Fat Then Fit Now; a life beyond weight loss and hope to start book signings in August.

There are some other plans in the works for me to reach as many people as I can not only about obesity, but childhood obesity and the long term ramifications on children including their health and well being and bullying.

I appreciate all of the notes, emails and phone calls asking when I was returning.  I apologize for being away.

Rush Limbaugh, Not a Health and Fitness Expert


Rush Limbaugh at CPAC in February 2009.

Image via Wikipedia

I listen to Rush Limbaugh daily.  I respect his success as a broadcast entertainer — in that realm he is without peer.  He is the most listened to and highest paid radio entertainer today.  Before Rush came along, AM radio was on death’s doorstep. His innovative approach; combining the persona of an FM disc jockey with political punditry saved the AM band and paved the way for every high and low paid radio talker today.

Now that the niceties are out-of-the-way, when it comes to health, fitness and wellness he don’t know Jack!

Jack LaLanne receives a Lifetime Achievement A...

Image via Wikipedia

Rush Limbaugh’s comments concerning Jack LaLanne demonstrate his complete lack of intellectual or common sense insight.  Those of us who promote healthy living are not impressed that Jack LaLanne existed until he was 96 years old.  What is impressive is that he LIVED until he was 96 years old — a distinction that must be understood to be appreciated.

A few years ago, I wrote  a newspaper column concerning my battle with obesity.  I closed out the column with the following sentences:

I was asked recently that if now that I lost the weight, I thought I was going to live longer. For a moment I pondered the question then answered, “I honestly don’t know, however I do know one thing, I am living better.”

Since that column appeared, in any radio, television, newspaper or internet interview I have given,  I am asked about those two sentences.  It is those two sentences that Rush Limbaugh just doesn’t understand.

I don’t know Rush Limbaugh any deeper than what he allows us to glimpse.  However, from the glimpses he gives, he is a man of excesses and lacks self-control.  He eats to excess, he smokes to excess (formerly cigarettes, now cigars) and that excessive personality led to an unfortunate drug dependency.

His lack of self-control continues to be an impediment to truly enjoying his incredible success and wealth.

How could I make such a claim of someone I do not know?  Two factors lead me to that conclusion.

One, I, as Rush Limbaugh is, was morbidly obese and two, he continues to try to lose weight.

If he were happy being obese, he would have stopped trying.  The reason for Rush’s continued failure in taking care of his health, is that he does NOT embrace fitness.  Everyone who has ever met me, or whom I have ever motivated has heard me say, WEIGHT  LOSS IS A SIDE EFFECT OF FITNESS.

The Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco, CA a...

Image via Wikipedia

When Jack LaLanne was Rush Limbaugh’s age, he swam the length of the Golden Gate Bridge — under water — towing one thousand pounds. By the way, he was handcuffed.  What does Rush do at the age of sixty?  He gets winded walking from a golf cart to his golf ball a few yards away.

Here is a simple truth of life;  all living things die! There is no escaping that fate.  It is how well you live that genuinely matters.

If Rush Limbaugh would like, I will take one year off from my practice and enter his employ.  I will move to Florida, I will monitor his eating, I will take him through proper exercise and I will motivate him.  After that year, I will have given him the greatest value for his money any person as ever received.  Rather than an existence, I will give him an active, living life!.
