Al Sharpton has lost a ton of weight. That’s a good thing. What I’m concerned about, however, is the fact that he has gone over board. I understand that he once weighed over 300 pounds. I get that. I also can imagine how awful he felt emotionally and physically to carry around all that excess weight. And he was in the public eye, so the taunts must have been devastating.
At some point he decided that enough was enough and he created his own plan which has worked. I believe that everyone who needs to lose weight should research and then create their own plan for their own lives. No one can do a better job of crafting your eating plans than you because you know what you like.
Al has indeed lost the weight. No debate there. My concern is that at 5’10” in height, he is now UNDER 130 pounds. He would be thin at 140. He is now skin and bones. He indicated that with his sparse diet, he has trained his body not to be hungry. Okay….but here is what he eats daily:
Breakfast: Several slices of whole wheat toast and green juice
Lunch: A salad with boiled egg for protein and a banana
He eats fish once or twice per week. My guess is that he sometimes eats other types of fruit.
In short, his day consists of 1,000 calories. Bread, juice, water, banana, and a salad. He also exercises daily. So he is down to 129 pounds.
my unsolicited advice to him is to eat a dinner nightly. Include a sweet potato or some brown rice with veggies or some soup.
We can eat ourselves into or out of good health.
I’ve always believed that so many are digging the grave with their bellies.
About 20 years ago I remember hearing for the first time about Ebola. At that time there was a doctor who very clearly explained how it develops. He indicated that there are certain tribes in Africa that will EAT the dead bodies of their family members who have died. Why? Because they believe that by eating parts of their bodies, the ancestors will become a part of them eternally.
In short, that’s how Ebola virus develops.
I find it very disturbing that the truth about how it develops is not being discussed any more. I find it further disturbing that lies are being told about how it spreads. Two people with the disease have been brought over here. An interviewer on MSNBC asked a doctor if he could get it by someone on an airplane sneezing. The doctor LIED and said no. What are these lies about?
Keep in mind that two Americans contracted the disease even though they were wearing protective gear. So if THEY could get it, what makes people think that someone on an airplane being sneezed on cannot?
I cannot find any information regarding the true nature of this disease. Even if it’s only contracted by bodily fluids, why wouldn’t it spread? After all….anyone remember AIDS?
