Every Super Hero has a side kick that gets him out of trouble, and helps him or her save the day. Batman had Robin, Superman had… Spiderman had… ok maybe not all of them had side kicks, but hell most of them are not human. Batman was really the only human, and he needed Robin’s help. If you want a Super Hero Body then you need a side kick. He or she doesn’t need to be human, but you do need one. Side kicks help you get your ass out of the house to workout or into the gym when you don’t feel like training (which in most cases is almost everyday); they push and demand more intensity helping you over come plateaus while reaching your fitness goals.
My partner in crime at the moment is Lorenza. Lorenza is an 8 year old German Shepard + Beagle that bugs me until I take her out to the park. She knows she needs her exercise as well, and she needs to eat right just like me. If you are dog owner, I know you love your mutt as much as your own children, so I know you are going to want to read what I found out today.
Turns out that dogs don’t live as much as they should. The average American dog lives 11 years, while in optimum conditions they should live around 26 years!!!
Why are they dying so young?
They are dying for the same reason we are… their food is worst than crap. Dog food is so bad my dog prefers to eat crap instead of her food. I’ve tried all different types of brands, and she simply doesn’t like them. I bet she can smell all the preservatives and chemicals in there.
In fact, through my own research I discovered dog food contains at least 6 deadly chemicals that have been banned from human foods because they cause:
- Kidney cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Skin cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Spleen cancer
- Liver dysfunction
- Major organ failure
- Immune system collapse
- Severe allergic reactions
- Birth Defects
- Chronic Diarrhea
- Hair Loss and
- Behavior problems, including increased aggressiveness –> very dangerous if your dog is around children.
Now don’t think you can just give your dog left overs and that is it. Dogs have a different digestive system as ours, and thus they have different nutritional requirements. It’s very easy, if you know how to cook specifically for dogs. Just cook a large batch, freeze it and it can be eaten over several days.
But be sure you have a good source of healthy dog food recipes written especially for dogs because they have very specific requirements, different to humans.
It’s possible to love your dog to death with too much of the wrong foods, just like most people do with their kids.
If you you love your dog as much as I love mine I know you will be willing to spend a few more minutes in the kitchen, just to keep him or her alive for a lot more years.
