The year was 1999 A.D.
And I’d been following bad health advice for years.
Real good stuff like…
Eat low fat food. Because fat will kill you.
Refined carbs are OK. If they’re low fat, that is.
Exercise means jog till the cows come home. Then
rest up and jog some more.
The soy bean is a miracle food. Eat all of it you can get.
And my all time favorite…
Even moderate sunlight exposure is dangerous.
Real good stuff, huh?
Now let me tell you what all this bad advice did for
By the time this joy ride was over I was a solid 220

So you know how really things work. Because Readers

So you fly back in time. And tell him this…
You can’t go outside without smearing toxic sunblock
all over your body.
Because that sun that gives you the food you eat. And the
very air you breath. Is bad for you.
And one more thing…
You can’t eat fresh meat anymore. Because it’s bad for

Then you tell me who should be giving out the health advice.
