found this too funny to pass up posting it

Earlier this month, the FDA approved Slentrol, a new drug from Pfizer that addresses obesity. But don’t ask your doctor about Slentrol. You’ll have to ask your vet, because Slentrol is for dogs.

According to a report from MedPage Today, adverse reactions to the drug include vomiting, loose stools, diarrhea, lethargy, and loss of appetite.

Of course, there’s a two-part alternative therapy with no side effects: Less food and more walks. And dog walking provides excellent obesity-fighting exercise for the owner as well – something Slentrol can’t claim.

In fact, the FDA warns that humans who get the idea to try their pooch’s Slentrol may suffer headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal distention.
I don’t want to know how they found that out.

High Intensity Resistance Training
High intensity resistance workouts are the superstars. When performed properly, they elevate your BMR, drastically increase your EPOC and burn a fair amount of calories per workout.
Various studies have shown these types of workouts to:
Increase metabolism for up to 36 hours post-workout…36 hours !!
Drastically outperform diet and aerobic exercise in fat loss studies
Maintain muscle mass in subjects on a Very Low Calorie Diet
The Details
High Intensity Resistance Training works best when you focus on:
Total Body workouts
Pushing yourself until your muscles burn with lactic acid
Perform supersets, tri-sets, giant sets, etc…
Compound exercises – squats instead of leg extensions
Big muscle groups – legs, back and chest instead of arms and shoulders
Performing sets of 5 to 15 repetitions
