More Evdence High Intensity Interval Exercise (HIIT) Works

Still trying to lose weight the old-fashioned way with hours of strenuous exercises in the gym doing exercises that leave you exhausted thinner? Do you cringe every time you watch the contestants on The Biggest Loser go through their Last Chance Workouts with Bob Harper yelling in their ears?
I'm here to tell you that you don't have to subject yourself to all that misery. And it doesn't work anyways!
The secret is out!
High Intensity Interval Training WORKS!
A recent study by researchers at Ohio State University has confirmed that alternating fast and slow periods of exercise may increase your weight loss. For example, walking or running for a minute fast  followed by several minutes of slow walking can improve your chances of losing wcight.
The researchers believe this type of alternating fast and slow periods increase the matabolic burn,
The great thing about it is that you can perform any type of exercise in this manner to achieve these results. These include using the treadmill or bicycle.

An Open Letter from One Loser to a Winner

I have tried to avoid politics in this blog, not because I don't have ideas that are political but because I think politics is very private and individual. I try to respect everyone's political views even if I strongly disagree.
But there is one current politician who stands alone in his contempt for those who disagree with him. I'm speaking about Donald Trump of course.
Trump would undoubtedly call me a "loser" because unlike this "favorite son" he never served a minute in the military or in Vietnam. I did but I consider myself extremely lucky that I was a company clerk like Mash's Radar.
Unlike Senator John McCain, I'm clearly no hero, but I am throughly disgusted with the rantings of this third rate businessman, the Donald.
I did not wach Trump's so-called telethon for vets last night but I am sure like his television show it was thoroughly entertaining. I am sure he wrapped himself in the American flag and professed his undying support for vets. Well, Mr. Trump, you fooled no one.
You were afraid to face questions of substance in the Republican presidential debate because you have no substance.
When I think of Mr Trump, I am often reminded of that famous challenge by attorney Joseph Welch of that other demagogue, Senator Joseph McCarthy, during the Army Mc Carthy hearings in the early 1950s: "Have sense of decency, sir?"
That was the beginning of the end for Senator McCarthy and we can only hope that Mr Trump's blatant attempt to use the millions of veterans of this country for his crass political purposes will fail,and fail miserably.
