Weekend Link Love – Edition 51

Tummy tucking and breast augmentation are behind the times. In the world of useless, invasive surgery, the fashionable thing to do is get the fat sucked out of your eye sockets. (Thanks to Dr. Eades for digging up this one)

Are pets good for your health? Read Cranky Fitness to find out. (Warning: Lolcats included)

If you’ve got an hour, this video of Gary Taubes does a great job of summing up his wonderful book, Good Calories, Bad Calories. (thanks for posting this in the forum, Tim!)

Zen Habits has an epic list of 55 ways to get more energy. The list is solid, but if you’re an MDA regular, you’ll probably spot the 4 I don’t agree with.

What’s the worst fast food you’ve ever seen? Go Healthy Go Fit points toward Dominos’ Pasta Bread Bowl. If you can find something worse, leave it in the comments section.

And finally from Elana’s Pantry–wrong or right–an almost-Primal twinkie recipe (just be careful with the agave nectar).

  1. the bread bowl commercial has been raising my blood pressure ever since i caught it about a week ago. i’m sure there are worse things to eat, like domino’s pizza in general, but the redonk processed carbs served in processed carbs is insidious. stop the madness, people.

  2. For the Zen habits, the recommendation for aerobic exercise is obviously something Mark disagrees with.

    Can’t find the other 3 though.

  3. There is a local restaurant chain that serves bowtie pasta, breaded and deep fried. Bleck!

  4. I love Elana’s Pantry! We have very similar styles, and have worked off of eachother’s recipes.

    Thanks for the Taubes link. Always looking for more content from him!

  5. I tried the twinkie recipe, just not in the twinkie format – i don’t have a mold like that.

    I liked it as a regular cake recipe, however.

    A few changes to try out – instead of the agave nectar, blend a banana. This will make the twinkies more brown colored, but the original twinkies were banana flavored.

    I’d also recommend whipping the eggs right before you incorporate the other part of the batter with it. It took long enough for me to mix the batter that they’d fallen enough that it was annoying.

    Depending on your cooking & baking skills, it may take a few times to get this right – it’s a kind of complex recipe that requires a light touch with the mixing of the ingredients.

  6. Sir..please keep your shirt on in the photos.

    Aside from rampant envy ( and you look bloody good is an non homosexual as way as i can say !) it seems to lump yr site in with all the knobheads who self-aggrandize (Arse De Vany being the primo self-aggrandizer)
    Yr site is really quite quite super and when i see those it kinda detracts as it reminds me of one of those horrific ad’s for whatever is being sold.
    Heavily detracts for me anyways.

    Am sure it ‘moves’ many of the lasses.

  7. LOL!! There’s a point to Mark being shirtless. Take a read around.

  8. Pets are GREAT for your health. I will always live with a dog, cats are good for you, too. They love unconditional and they’re always so much fun to be around. They have an unusual way of turning around a bad day into good and make your best days even better, they always care about you! I believe everyone should experience the happiness a pet gives. If you think about it, dogs are used in some hospitals to some sick patients for therapy, just makes patients feel so much better for the time they’re holding the dog!
    Dogs are so magical to people’s lives!!!

  9. Okay Mark… re: the zen list of 55 energy tips… which 4 don’t you agree with? thehova weighed in and said you wouldn’t agree with the tip for aerobic exercise… I would think that you may agree with getting rid of the stuffy nose but NOT by using OTC allergy meds… MDA also had a post saying that it wasn’t necessary to drink 8 cups of water per day… maybe eating low glycemic foods are good, but wheat bread and pasta??? sooooo…. which 4 didn’t you agree with????

  10. Interesting Taubes video, much common sense.
    I have never catered to the vegetarian way of life and never really followed the food pyramid. I was lucky enough to be raised on wild game and plenty of vegetables too, many of them grown in the backyard garden and in season. Oh and my parents made me go outside and “play” rain or shine.
