  1. Explain to me why 9 out of 10 people do not care about being fit or how fit you are?


    Ive noticed that in most parts of the United States, most people do not care about being fit, nor do they care how fit another person is. I was reading an article recently about how women in general do not care if a man is fit. Many of them prefer a man to have something called a DAD Bod cause they feel that these men are more marriage material or commitment material? They also say they prefer it cause it makes them feel more comfortable in their own skin. Explain that one to me please?

    Now if you go to places such as California in the beach communities, people care more about eating right and being fit. There are more establishments that serve healthy meals as well. But say you are in Chicago, most people don't give a ****. Many people are actually against a person being too fit which I am having a very hard time understanding why. Common comments will be "You need to eat! You are way too lean" and so forth. People in Italian families or who hang out with people from that ethnic background will get looked down upon it seems if they don't have some bodyfat to them. When was it bad that a person is lean and cut? Healty food restaurants? **** that the entire city is overdone with pizza places and burger joints that serve foods such as Italian Beefs and hot dogs.

    When did America become a place to accept such a thing? If you notice that if a person who is fit walks in a room or public place in the United States, many times they will get looked at like they are some alien life form. I've seen it, I've experienced it and I'm sure many of you have. Its as if people can't believe what they are seeing.

    Your thoughts?

    I mean why would you care, it’s about being happy not being fit. Do what you want and do what you please, if being fit or unfit is what makes you happy than do what makes you happy. Life isn’t about doing what other want you to do it’s about doing what you want to do or be like.

  3. I’ve always been told “Misery loves company”

    Being fit is challenging. It’s hard. No doubt about it. People don’t like to work hard.

    I think they sort of resent it the way people resent wealthy people.

    I’ve also always been told “people are creatures of comfort”. Being fit is an uncomfortable lifestyle. Again, a reason to resent someone who chooses it.

    The Dad bod fad is just people being insecure with themselves. Biologically humans are programmed to like the fit look.

  4. I have family in California. I’ve always asked myself the same thing. I’ve gotta follow this

  5. People care about themselves its that simple. People are programmed by society to do like everyone they put themselves around does. I prefer being "weird" and going against the grain. Many,times they dont even choose, who stays and goes in their life, and ive been guilty of this to some degree; although if a person causes me too much stress, takes a smile off my face, bye-bye. When people are out partying on the weekends constantly, going out to eat all the time, like 10 x's a week, whether fast food or at a nice restaurant, make 65,000, and living a 150,000 dollar lifestyle and wonder why they dont have any money, and after going out on a night on town mention, I didnt have that money to spend. A nice body is something people like to look at and admire, fgor most though its a mere wish, and not willing to do what takes.

    Ive found people admire what I do, clean diet, dedicated training, and living this lifestyle for the most part regularly. That's not to say in the offseason Ill go off my diet or even not eat at all for a very very brief period.

    This made me laugh, I think its those big a** arms, and the fact that you are 6'5" that make people look at you like an alien. They might be afraid you are going to kick their a**.

    But for real, I think a lot of people are embarrassed by people who live a healthy lifestyle. Majority have the desire to do it, but not the will power. Its like being the guy at the party that wont drink over-and-over, it brings shame to other even if you don't intend for it to happen. The outcome can often become ambivalence.

  10. Lazy people want to be fit, but they dont want to do anything about it.
    So they make themselves feel better by saying the fit people are nuts or whatever.

    Also to the point of women preferring out of shape men, i personally think it has to do with society being against the testosterone in men... Its been building for so long, its almost an instinct to classify a big strong man as a "bad guy"
    Its friggen sad.

    I enjoy my life and enjoy to be healthy. Just ran to Kroger to get my lunch consisting of skinless chicken breast and basmati rice. Then after that had to stop at Wendy's because I was nice enough to take orders from the rest of the crew in the office and its what they wanted. I do not eat like them, but we all get along. My question was an honest question so take it for what it is.

    Ummm-your evidence for this is what exactly?

    You are just flat wrong-yes, humans have an evolutionary tendency to favor “fitness”, but that is tautological: of course humans find attractive mates that will be able to bear and/or protect children that are born (I.e. fitness).

    Where you err is in the fact that our current concepts of “fitness”: washboard abs, single digit body fat, large amounts of muscle mass, etc. are blatantly NOT fit from a survival perspective.

    Your current paragon of fitness would not be sustainable without protein powder and processed foods (let alone PED’s) and would surely not last long in the wild.

    End of the day, why all of the drama about other people’s standards for their bodies. Last I checked, it literally has zero impact on your happiness or sense of self worth. Unless you get off on judging people, and that is another issue

    About other people’s opinions of what is attractive? no, I don’t think he (or any of us) is allowed that

  16. I still think most women are bimbo's who would rather be the trophy that the man can show off instead of having a trophy husband. This is why they prefer men with DAD Bods. They don't want the competition! These types are insecure as it is and do not want someone to say "Man your husband is fit, when are you gonna start going to the gym with him?" Or have to feel that their husband can run off with another woman at any given time if he chooses.

    NPC has repeatedly called women bimbos and all sorts of other derogatory words that showed up as ****. Hell, he’s doing it again in this very thread. Sure, he’s entitled to “speak his mind,” but we’re entitled to speak ours and say that he’s being a douche.

    I wouldn’t say that, all things equal, most women actually prefer a “dad bod.” By this I mean if they could magically flip a switch and have their BF/husband/etc suddenly have a very fit, muscular body (however developed they like, maybe just a Hugh Jackman look, or maybe the Rock, Zane, Arnold, etc),without any effort required or any change to their personality, I’d wager most women would do it.

    If you think most women are bimbos, it comes as no surprise that this is what you find.

    Here’s a parable for you, with any luck it’ll change your perspective on women, and people in general:

    “A traveler came upon an old farmer hoeing in his field beside the road. Eager to rest his feet, the wanderer hailed the countryman, who seemed happy enough to straighten his back and talk for a moment.
    "What sort of people live in the next town?" asked the stranger.

    "What were the people like where you've come from?" replied the farmer, answering the question with another question.

    "They were a bad lot. Troublemakers all, and lazy too. The most selfish people in the world, and not a one of them to be trusted. I'm happy to be leaving the scoundrels."

    "Is that so?" replied the old farmer. "Well, I'm afraid that you'll find the same sort in the next town.

    Disappointed, the traveler trudged on his way, and the farmer returned to his work.

    Some time later another stranger, coming from the same direction, hailed the farmer, and they stopped to talk. "What sort of people live in the next town?" he asked.

    "What were the people like where you've come from?" replied the farmer once again.

    "They were the best people in the world. Hard working, honest, and friendly. I'm sorry to be leaving them."

    "Fear not," said the farmer. "You'll find the same sort in the next town.””

    Your thoughts?
    my thoughts, after reading several of your posts is this...I think you enjoying stirring things up, I'm not sure if you even believe a lot of the dribble you post.

    my advice...find a hobby where you interact with people face to face.
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  24. Chicago represent!! We eat well in Chicago because we make a lot more money and have better restaurants.

    Jk, but to talk **** about Chicago vs California is stupid. One is the best city in the world and the other is a state full of liberal snowflakes who can't figure out what bathroom they should tinkle in.. Go face to face and talk like that on the south or west side of Chi lmao.
