Health reform is becoming law.How it’s possible for those states to file law suits on Government?Shouldn’t they obey the law now or face the jail or something?

They feel that they are being forced to do something that is unconstitutional and they are suing to
stop what they feel is an unfair burden that is being forced upon them. They are being told thaat they have to cover all these people and they are given no money to cover them with. This will surely
bankrupt the state. That is why they are suing. If you feel you’ve been wronged by the government,
you do have the right to sue. Everybody has that right.

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

I weigh 155 pounds, and cannot seem to gain no matter how much I eat. From someone’s experience, what is the best vitamin weight gain supplement on the market?

Probably the most popular and also the best one is whey protein powder.

What are the physical requirements for the fitness test in the Marines?

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

I know the Army requires so many sit-ups, push-ups, and to finish a 2 mile run in under so many minutes, but what are the Marines requirements for their fitness test in boot camp for women?

What are you required to do, and how many times in how long of time? For WOMEN, not men.

Don’t reply unless you actually know or you will just look stupid.

Form
[edit] Pull-up
The standard Marine Corps pull-up begins at the "dead-hang" with arms locked out and the body hanging motionless. A successful pull-up is performed without excess motion, the body rising until the chin is above the bar, and body lowered back to the "dead-hang" position. Changes in grip are allowed as long as the feet don’t touch the ground and only the hands come in contact with the pull-up bar. There is no time limit.

[edit] Flexed arm hang
Female Marines perform the flexed hang instead of the pull-up. The flexed hang is started with the chin above the pull-up bar. The timer is started and does not stop until the arms become fully extended. The feet may not touch the ground or any part of the pull-up bar at any time.

[edit] Crunches
Crunches are executed with the feet flat on the ground or 12 inches apart (which ever is more comfortable), knees bent at a 90 degree angle, and your arms on your ribcage or chest. One crunch is completed when the upper body is lifted until both arms touch the thighs and then lowered until the shoulder blades touch the ground. The arms must be in constant contact with the chest or rib cage; the buttocks must be in constant contact with the ground. The exercise is performed with the heel of your foot always on the ground. The Marine is given two minutes to complete the exercise. Males must complete 44 Crunches to pass exercise.

[edit] 3-mile run
Three miles on reasonably flat ground are run as quickly as possible. (Actual distance may vary slightly.)

[edit] Scoring
Marine Corps PFTs are scored the following way for males:

Pull-ups: Each complete pull-up is worth 5 points up to a maximum of 100 points (20 pull-ups). Additional pull-ups beyond 20 are not counted and do not add to the score.
Crunches: Each completed crunch is worth 1 point up to a maximum of 100 points. Any crunches completed after the two minute time limit are not counted and do not add to the score.
Three mile run: A perfect score of 100 points is achieved by completing the run in less than 18 minutes. One point is deducted from the score for each additional ten seconds that it takes to complete the run. Completing the run in less than 18 minutes does not add to the score.
Marine Corps PFTs are scored the following way for females:

Flex-arm hang: The maximum score of 100 points is achieved when the Marine maintains the flex-arm hang for 70 seconds. The clock is stopped when the Marine drops off the bar or the arms become fully extended. The Marines chin at no time is allowed to touch the bar. The score is calculated by subtracting the actual hang time in seconds from the maximum hang time (70 seconds) and deducting two points for each second of difference.
Crunches: Each completed crunch is worth 1 point up to a maximum of 100 points. Any crunches completed after the two minute time limit are not counted and do not add to the score. (Note: This is the only event that is scored identically to the male event.
Three mile run: A perfect score of 100 points is achieved by completing the run in less than 21 minutes. One point is deducted from the score for each additional ten seconds that it takes to complete the run. Completing the run in less than 21 minutes does not add to the score.
[edit] Maximums and minimums
To earn a perfect PFT score of 300 points, a male must do 20 pull-ups, 100 crunches in less than two minutes, and complete the three mile run in 18 minutes or less. A female perfect score is 70 seconds on the flexed arm hang, 100 crunches, and a 21 minute three mile run. Marines who score above a 285 receive certifications as an award for their higher than average fitness.

Marine Corps PFT Classification Scores – Male and Female
Class Age 17-26 Age 27-39 Age 40-45 Age 46+
1st 225 200 175 150
2nd 175 150 125 100
3rd 135 110 88 65

The minimum a male Marine must complete are 3 pull-ups, 50 crunches, and a 28 minute 3-mile run. The minimum a female Marine must complete are 15 seconds on a flexed arm hang, 44 crunches and a 30 minute 3-mile run. Note that merely completing the minimum in each category is not sufficient for passing the test (i.e., one must achieve a passing score and complete at least the minimum in each category in order to pass the test).[1]

Minimums and Age Adjustment – Male and Female
Age Pull-Ups Flexed Arm Hang Crunches 3-Mile Run Male 3-Mile Run Female
17-26 3 15 Seconds 50 28:00 31:00
27-39 3 15 Seconds 45 29:00 32:00
40-45 3 15 Seconds 45 30:00 33:00
46+ 3 15 Seconds 40 33:00 36:00

How can I improve my health without spending loads of money?

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

I already have pretty good health, for example I go to a gym regularly and buy my own health foods. But this does tend to be quite expensive at times. What can I do to save money but improve my health?

For optimal health, I advocate a low carb way of eating. As long as you have <9grams carbs per hour, you will maintain insulin control & shouldn’t gain weight, no matter the calories, because insulin (the ONLY fat storage hormone) isn’t activated.

I personally believe in using fat as fuel instead of carbohydrates. Fat is totally benign in the absence of insulin. There aren’t enough calories in vegetables & fruits to fuel the body, if you get enough calories from carbs to fuel the body, then you maintain an almost constant high insulin level with roller coaster blood glucose levels. I recommend fats from butter, coconut, olives, nuts, fish & meats, chia seeds & flax seeds.

When you restrict higher carb, lower nutrition foods, it becomes much easier to greatly increase vegetables in your diet. Change your mindset just adapt it to low carb -
replace bread with lettuce
replace pasta with cabbage
replace rice with cauliflower
replace potatoes with brocolli

High carb levels trigger insulin which unbalance other hormones, promote inflammation, weight gain, hunger. Controlling insulin levels will balance out other hormones and allow sex hormones (testosterone in men) & human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so lean muscle will be gained even without exercise. Any exercise will greatly increase muscle mass with high HGH levels.

Simple carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice) trigger insulin which can store the calories eaten into fat. The more protein the more the fat burning hormone glucagon is released. The more carbohydrate the more the fat storage hormone insulin is released.

Highly nutritious foods you should consider: sprouts, spirulina, paprika, turnip greens, mustard greens, kale, garlic, brewers yeast, raw almonds, ground flax seeds & chia seeds.

Paprika – 1 Tablespoon = 20 cal = 71% DV Vit.A – 8% DV Vit.C – 10% DV Vit.E – 14% DV Vit.B6 – 9% DV Iron & others way too many to list.

Brewer’s Yeast Powder – Two tblspns. provide a whole lot of nutrition! 158% RDA Chromium – 90% Selenium – 88% B2 – 80% B1 – 50% Copper – 50% Niacin – 40% B6 & others way too many to list. It tastes peanutty to me. I have been adding it to sesame butter, a lil raw honey, coconut cream & coconut oil, powdered whey and tastes like peanut butter to me!

Chia seeds sound so expensive but 1# will make 10# food – Amazon.com has couple lbs. for $16 shipped to you. I buy in bulk (24#) from getchia.com for $5.83# with free shipping.

Chia seeds – 3.5 oz is nearly 500 calories, half calories from fat (high in Omega3 fatty acids) 38g fiber 151%DV & 16grams of COMPLETE protein for 6grams carbs & 63% DV Calcium – 95% Phosphorus – 23% Zinc – 9% Copper – 108% Manganese.

Faux tapioca – 2 cups of water, 5 scoops of low carb whey protein powder, stir together & add cup of chia seeds, after they have started to absorb the water, add in 2 cans of coconut milk & sweetener if you like and mix it all in. Can be eaten after an hour but will be better tomorrow. Cream a pkg. of cream cheese into a can of pumpkin and add to the faux tapioca for an even more nutritious pumpkin pie pudding.

Ground flax seed (2-4 Tbsp) 1/4 cup water, sweetener, cinnamon & mix in a raw egg – let sit 10 min. to absorb liquid, put some cream cheese in the middle & nuke 2 minutes. Suggested for daily fiber needs.

I have been making a "porridge" every day lately as suggested by Dr.Mercola. A low carb whey powder & water, I add ground flax seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, coconut milk, tahini (ground sesame seeds) & raw egg. All seeds & nuts are raw & soaked to germinate them.

Flax seed – 3.5oz – 534 cal – 65% calories from fat (high in Omega3 fatty acids) for 2gram carb – 27g fiber 109%DV – 26% DV Calcium – 64% Phosphorus – 29% Zinc – 61% Copper – 124% Manganese – 36% Selenium – 98% Magnesium – 32% Iron – 110% Thiamin – 9% B2 Riboflavin – 15% B3 Niacin – 24% Vit.B6 – 22% Folate – 10% Vit.B5.- 39% Potassium

Raw nuts are living and full of the energy of life and should be capable of building a tree. Roasted nuts are dead & they may still provide some nutrients, but none can compare to the nutrients and enzymes from a live food.

Unfortunately, raw does not necessarily mean living.

For example – Commercially sold almonds are now required to be pasteurized turning a live food into a dead one. You can not sprout an almond that has been irradiated. I buy my almonds direct from growers off ebay. I get 20# for less than $3# including shipping.

Almonds- 3.5oz – 575 cal – 72% calories from fat for 10gram carb & 26% DV Calcium – 48% Phosphorus – 21% Zinc – 50% Copper – 114% Manganese – 4% Selenium – 67% Magnesium – 21% Iron – 14% Thiamin – 60% B2 Riboflavin – 17% B3 Niacin – 7% Vit.B6 – 12% Folate – 5% Vit.B5.- 131% Vit.E – Potassium 20%

Brazil Nuts- 3.5oz – 656 cal – 85% calories from fat for 4gram carb & 16% DV Calcium – 73% Phosphorus – 27% Zinc – 87% Copper – 61% Manganese – 2739%

What are the health risks of my use of smokeless tabacco every so often?

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

I dip about once every other day, if not once every 3 days. What are the health risk if I rotate where I put the lip in my mouth along with the amount I use it. Seeing that most frequent users dip 2-3 times a day, I feel that the health risks associated with them don’t complelely apply to my use.

you still risk the chance of getting oral cancer..

Is it possible to increase height by the use of synthetic HGH?

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

I saw on net that there are some people who have growned taller due to the use of synthetic HGH.I am 20,is it possible for me??How much it will cost & whom i have to consult to take it??

The closure of growth plates is related to local growth plate factors not growth hormone levels(the exact cause of gigantism is unknown). Growth Hormone can affect the width of your periosteum and since short and irregular bones are completely covered by periosteum and are a component by height. GH can increase your height by a small amount.
