    A little-known scientific process is being hailed as the new way to lose weight, look younger and prolong life.

These have led to a better understanding of diseases such as Parkinson's and dementia. ... What is autophagy? The word autophagy comes from the Greek for "self" and "phagein", which means "to eat" It is the...

    VIDEO I cooked garlic ribs aka St. Louis ribs smothered in garlic on January 9. I used the 3-2-1 method in which after initially smoking the ribs for 3 hours, I wrapped them in foil for another 2 hours, and finally slathered barbecue sauce mixed with butter on them for the final hour. A great low carb meal for weight loss.

    While the keto diet can help you lose weight, it also has a ton of weird side effects, like the keto flu, diarrhea, and keto breath. Now, there’s apparently another one to add to that list: keto rash—and it sounds even worse than walking around with breath that smells like acetone. What is the keto rash? The keto rash—a.k.a. prurigo pigmentosa—is an uncommon inflammatory disease that’s often characterized by red, itchy bumps on the neck, back, and stomach, according to a literature review on the condition in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology. While the rash’s exact cause is unknown,...

    VIDEO If you are scratching your head over the title, the video will explain it. This was recorded at the Porto Alegre Brazilian Restaurant in Miami on December 23, 2018 where I interviewed several of my young guests. Besides the Birthday Boy, attending was his brother, Marine Lance Corporal Ken Gutierrez, home on leave from his duty station in Hawaii. He gave me a rather unexpected opinion about that state. Also interviewed was Genesis the Mermaid who also surprised me with her new love for spicy food since she used to prefer mild to bland food. Now she prefers her...

    VIDEO For the first time in years, I was able to fit into a size 38 pants today which I wore to the weigh-in. When I started my weight loss odyssey back on May 27 this year, I was barely able to fit into a size 46 pants. I lost weight this time but not as much as during the past two weigh-ins. I'm blaming Thanksgiving, specifically Thanksgiving pumpkin pie-cake which I sort of gorged on. However, there is now a very good chance that I will drop down to my 220 pound goal of 100 total pounds lost by...

    VIDEO I need to drop 26 pounds by my Friday weigh-in in order to reach 220 pounds for a total loss since May of 100 pounds. However, I won't quite get there this time but the good news is that I AM NO LONGER FAT!!! A few days ago I noticed this new non-fat condition while walking by a full length mirror. A condition that until recently I doubted I would ever be able to obtain after years of trying and failing to lose weight. Although I won't hit the 100 pound loss by Friday, I am pretty sure it...

    VIDEO I am now exactly a week away from my December 21 weigh-in. I had hoped to drop to my goal of 100 pounds down from my May 27 weight of 320 pounds. However, as I noted in this video, Thanksgiving caused a weight loss slowdown for me plus the fact that I need to lose 26 pounds from my last weigh-in. My normal weight loss is just 20 to 23 pounds lost per 6 week period. Another reason why I would like to drop to 220 pounds by next Friday is that if I do so I have a...

    During her fawning one-hour show devoted to promoting Michelle Obama’s new memoir on Thursday, daytime host and Democratic activist Ellen DeGeneres put together a montage of liberal journalists showering the former First Lady with adoring coverage throughout Barack Obama’s administration. DeGeneres told Mrs. Obama that the purpose of the sycophantic video was to celebrate her “amazing impact.” Returning from a commercial break, DeGeneres proclaimed: “We are back with my friend, Michelle Obama. And I hope you know what an amazing impact that you’ve had on this country and all over the world.” The liberal comedian continued to heap effusive praise...

    VIDEO These smoked turkey wings turned out VERY spicy. Just the way I like them. Plus they are low/no carb so they help me to lose weight. After I tried them, my wife declared them to be too spicy for her. Me? I like to feel the heat. However, although I mentioned smoking them in addition to turkey for Thanksgiving, I better wait for another occasion since if my wife found them to be too spicy, her sister and her family will probably have the same reaction.
