I think there's a difference between moving around in a standing position and standing still in one position. A mix of moving, sitting, and standing is probably best.
The BAS isn't my thing. The only salad I absolutely love is a traditional Caesar's Salad. But until I find a primal crouton I like, those are on the back burner. Sauteed veggies, or greens cooked inside a burger or stir fry are lovely, but all that cold crunchy stuff never did it for me.
As to the abs, I kind of look at M&F as gentle porn. Those guys are fun to look at, but really, men who spend that much time on their appearance whether at a gym or on hair product sort of come off as girly-men to me. JMO, but guys in glasses from too much reading are the bigger turn on.
