STAYIN' ALIVE

The words to the disco hit now ringing in your head notwithstanding, that was Ogg's primary goal. Living in a harsh environment, without much between him and the elements, he had not much choice but to concentrate upon survival. Survive he did, thus here we are today, countless generations later. Ogg survived and reproduced.

Today, we don't generally have to spend so much of our waking time concentrating upon survival. If you don't go to a REALLY BAD neighborhood late at night with hundred dollar bills sticking out of your pockets, and if you don't step off the curb in front of a bus, you pretty much can survive. We have the luxury of spending our time, if we so choose, working on the quality of our life. Living today just doesn't require as much physical effort as it did, even a couple of generations ago. We don't have to cut firewood, feed and care for livestock, walk very far, do laundry in a washtub, etc. At the same time, food is plentiful. Low physical demand, plentiful food =F.A.T.!! That's just nature. The only way to avoid it is to consciously make the decision to increase your physical energy output and decrease your caloric intake.

21ST CENTURY MIND, 40,000B.C. BRAIN AND BODY

Realizing that our physical bodies have yet to adapt to our present situation is the key to staying healthy. The easy excesses of our society make it MONDO tough to do! Hey, I like Doritos as much (if not more) than the next guy! A few handfuls of things like that, now and then, and your fine. A bag of them and you added a couple of thousand calories to your daily food intake, give or take a few hundred. It's really sneaky. Calories are everywhere.........lurking..............ready to pounce directly onto your expanding ...........(you pick the body part that works for you). You have to be on the alert for these predators. They prey upon you like the bears, big cats, etc. preyed upon Ogg. If you keep your wits about you, however, you can escape them. You are home alone. You feel a little "snacky". You find yourself in front of the cupboard in the kitchen. As you open it, the Psycho shower theme music should play in your head. That bag of chocolate chip cookies is ready to dive on you! Close the door and save yourself!! Of course we're being a little silly here. The point is that you have the choice. We know, with all of the resources available to us now, what we have to do. The key is to find, within yourself, the will power to manage your health. You can do it, but you have to do it EVERY DAY. Just like Ogg had to survive....EVERY DAY.
