Health nuts are DYING to be thin
Ever had someone tell you that anything that doesn't kill you makes you stronger? Well, step one foot inside a typical gym, and you'll set yourself straight in a hurry.
Those sweat factories are packed floor to ceiling with machines that look like they came straight out of a North Korean torture chamber -- and they're all killing you, one burned calorie and one drop of sweat at a time.
And if you need any proof, just check out that guy with the 28-inch waist and stringbean arms pedaling away on an exercise bike like he's wearing the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. He's been hassling you for years about losing your spare tire, but there's a secret he's hiding under those short-shorts and neon tank top.
He's a walking corpse -- and a new study proves it.
According to a massive new analysis out of Canada, folks who are underweight are TWICE as likely to die prematurely as people who maintain a normal weight.
And that's not all. Turns out that being too thin is actually 50% deadlier than being fat! Tell THAT to the exercise Nazi who's always trying to drag you kicking and screaming on one of his "invigorating" five-mile jogs.
Being too skinny isn't killing Richard Simmons fast enough for my tastes, but it sure is killing plenty of others. It may even be what offed celebrities like jogging fanatic Jim Fixx who dropped dead at 52, or the health crazy Congressman Goodloe Byron who bought the farm at 49.
But for every Jim Fixx or Goodloe Byron you hear about, there are dozens of others you don't. In fact, one famous medical researcher conducted a study of 14 marathoners who died prematurely and found that every single one of them was malnourished!
Listen, there are a lot of self-proclaimed health nuts out there offering garbage advice that could have you jogging and cycling your way straight through the Pearly Gates. That "personal trainer" you're trusting with your life at the gym may have as little as six weeks of training – and he may NEVER have even set foot inside a classroom.
So stop trusting the meatheads and start trusting the science. Keep starving yourself and wasting away hours on a treadmill, and you could be a dead man walking.
And if you're not careful, it all might happen a lot sooner than you think.
