    These are interesting:

    To simulate outdoor running, set the treadmill incline to at least 1 percent. Running on a cardio machine set to a zero-percent grade is actually easier than running outdoors on flat ground -- because there`s no wind resistance and less friction.

    So that`s why we like sushi. By simultaneously eating "bad" high-glycemic foods (pasta, rice, etc.) and protein (fish, meat, etc.), you greatly lower the former`s absorption rate -- and reduce their tendency to be stored in the body as fat.

    The cold water fact is interesting.. I don`t know if I believe it though... :-P

    If you lose your Ray-Bans, it makes for an improvised pair of sunglasses. Simply rip off a foot-long piece of tape and stick it back on itself so it`s no longer sticky. Cut two eye slits into the tape and tie string (or a shoelace, cord, etc.) from one end to the other to secure it to your head. The slits will limit the amount of sunlight that gets in your eyes.

    wtf? are they serious?

    I would have to say I trust the cold water theory...Your body does have to use the extra calories to warm it up....Its interesting how important the different processes are to the human body.

    The specific heat capacity for water is 4.183 J·kg-1·K-1
    We should drink about a litre of water=1kg of water per day. Let`s say you get it out of the fridge at 5C. Your body needs to take it up to 37C. Difference of 32C and 1 litre. Q = m·c·Δθ = 1*4.183*32 =133.856J
    Then let google convert that to calories
    31.99K calories.

    Drinking more than that will result in it being ejected from the body, but you will still need to burn calories to bring it up to 37C.

    here`s another tip,
    if you get too many errections, like cheese boy,
    spread maynaise on it, this helps keep the muscles more relaxed.
    better yet, is bleach... tee hee...

    but yeh, some are good, some... i already knew. like the garlic one!

    Taking large gulps of water causes your body to expect a lot of water fast, and hence, dehydration is quicker. You SHOULD drink little and often.

    Diet coke before exercise is also a bad idea. though allowing you to work for longer, and harder. it also encourages dehydration. This can cause one to pass out.

    Some facts are useful; but a lot are merely speculation, and not at all fact. Kind of like reading a script from Horizon.

    This is quite right. The calories you end up burning off are pretty tiny amounts.

    I`d suggest diet and excercise.

    Yes. Although obviously you look like an idiot, so this isn`t an everyday sort of thing. It`s more for if you`re stranded in a snowy environment, where snow-blindness is a real risk if you don`t protect your eyes.

    there are two points that contradict themselves: "a smart way to lose weight is to work out before breakfast" but then it says "Your heart attack risk is greatest in the AM". should we keep calm and relaxed in the mornings or work out? I`m not a morning person anyway..
