Today’s post is an interview with the Doctor Of The Year, Dr Kno Mak Cens.

Doctor Of The Year 2009

Doctor Of The Year

Q: Doctor,  I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life.  Is this true?
A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that’s it… don’t waste on exercise.  Everything wear out eventually.  Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster.  Want to live longer?  Take nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiency. What does cow eat?  Hay and corn.  And what are these?  Vegetables.  So steak is nothing more than efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system.  Need grain?  Eat chicken.  Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable).  And pork chop can give you 100% of recommended daily allowance of vegetable product.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A:  No, not at all.  Wine made from fruit.  Brandy is distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way.  Beer also made of grain.  Bottom up!

Q: How  can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one.  If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc.

Q: What  are some of  the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can’t think of single one, sorry.  My philosophy is: No pain… good!

Q:  Aren’t fried foods bad for you?
A:  YOU NOT LISTENING!  Food are fried these day in vegetable oil.  In fact, they permeated by it.  How could getting more vegetable be bad for you?!?

Q:  Will  sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not!  When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.

Q:  Is chocolate bad for me?
A:  Are you crazy?!?  HEL-LO-O!!  Cocoa bean!  Another vegetable!  It best feel-good food around!

Q:  Is swimming good for your figure?
A:  If swimming good for your figure, explain whale to me..

Q:  Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A:  Hey!  ‘Round’ a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And  remember:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways – Chardonnay in one hand – chocolate in the other – body thoroughly used up,  totally worn out and screaming “WOO-HOO, what a  ride!!”

AND…..

For  those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health.  It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional  studies.

  1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
  2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
  3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
  4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
  5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of  sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

CONCLUSION:

Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Waking Moments

You might not realise it, but each day, we have 20,000 waking moments – according to one Nobel Prize Laureate who studied human psychology in depth. Others have estimated that men and women speak 5,000 and 10,000 words daily (respectively, but maybe not respectfully!).

The bad news is that 90% of these moments and words are re-lived the following day and the day after that – like the movie Ground Hog Day.

To avoid this trap, make a conscious effort to do something new, think something new by CHANGING something about what, how and who you do it with.

It’s actually not that hard to do.

  • Buy something new to eat.
  • Try a new restaurant.
  • Take a different route home.
  • Stay at a different hotel when traveling on business.
  • Sleep the ‘other way’ around on your bed (I’m serious, switch the sheets and put your head where your feet usually are and I promise you it will FEEL different. (Maybe even smell different!)
  • Pick up a magazine at the news agent you would never read in a million years – actually read a few pages – maybe even buy it.
  • Walk or cycle to the corner store instead of driving.
  • Don’t put milk in your tea or coffee (or vice versa).

The point is to just interrupt the pattern you’re in and see what happens – you will be FORCED to think and act differently at least in that moment and for several moments later.

I know I sound like a broken record sometimes, but it needs to be said:

“ It’s the little things that make a BIG difference.”

The more you stop trying to change the (your) world in one massive effort, the faster and sooner you’ll realise that the 1 Percent Improvement Doctrine is the way to go to effect long-lasting change.

The primary reason is  the HABIT you form is 1 Percent shifts which are not alien or foreign (which means your amygdala in your brain won’t see them as a threat) and will become who you are. A constantly evolving being…

If you think a blog post like this is interesting, imagine spending a day with me… At the upcoming Exponential Extravaganza event, I’m going to reveal hundreds of tips and techniques like this… I hope you’ll attend – it’s going to be a lot of fun!

You Are What You Eat

We’ve all heard the expression that we are what we eat… But who would have thought that the concept has been around for hundreds of years… I am not sure this is progress…

Antimimeticisomorphism: Recycling Part 2

If you’re addicted to this series of antimimeticisomorphism videos, you’re not alone. So am I! Don’t forget, I either find them or someone sends them to me… So I get the same thrill you get when you see it for the first time PLUS I get the satisfaction of knowing I’m the one who ‘sent it to you’. You’re welcome. It’s who I am and what I do as an Exponential Growth Strategist.
