Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

Eat chicken. Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And pork chop give 100% recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Best advice I’ve gotten all week!! Pass the chocolate please….
…pass the wine and ciggies here 🙂
chocolate and cheese here 🙂
It might be that cardiovascular exercise slows down the heart rate enough when resting to more than offset the increased heart rate when exercising. So the same number of heart beats gets extended over a longer period of time than not exercising at all.
The article was tongue in cheek, darn. 😉
SWimming.. a whale..that’s funny!!
Chocolate is definitely good for you. I sneak in a tub of Breyers no-sugar-added 1/2 fat triple chocolate and hide it behind the 6 year old salmon filets. No one will ever find my chocolate.
I hope your 6 year old salmon filets are cheaper than mine. My husband caught ours on his Manly-Man Fishing Trip to Alaska a few years ago. Trip expenses = oh, about $600 pound 😛 And I wouldn’t put my ice cream anywhere near them now.
My favorite tshirt from the 80s had this message on it:
I embraced that message.
Actually, the title for this post was inspired by a refrigerator magnet. This, or my other favorite maggie: Thou Shalt Not Weigh More Than the Refrigerator 😉 I may use that one for a Michelle post in the future, heh.
My refrigerator magnet says “I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.” My son gave it to me — think he’s trying to tell me something?? I have another one that says “I understand the concept of cooking and cleaning, just not as it applies to me.”
