    Online classes are interesting….I wonder how much more interactive they are than just an exercise video? Off to look around the site!

    I was pretty surprised and a liiiittle disapointed to see that infographic about living forever linked to on FBG without any discussion of what was on it…how carefully did you look at it?

    It recommends reducing your calorie intake by 25%, with NO mention of a healthy minimum, and says that being slightly hungry all the time is good for you. The info graphic says “Eat less” with no stipulations about eating enough. That does not sound like an FBG-approved way of living to me.

    Seeing such a graphic – attractive, well-laid out, and citing legitimate sources, could also be extremely triggering for girls who struggle or have struggled with eating issues. I know the internet is a big place and you’re always going to offend someone, but I get the feeling that there is a fairly large number of girls who read fitness blogs as part of a way to inspire themselves to live healthy lives as they fight against eating disorders, and stumbling across something like this recommended by a website like yours, whichis usually so health-focused, could be a stumbling block in that quest to live healthily.

    I recommend that if you’re going to post a link to this, you at least address the part that recommends starvation as a way to live longer.

  3. I think having passion for health will help in your weight loss success as when you get healthy you lose weight. Most people think the opposite. They think just losing weight is going to equal better health. People need to look at weight loss less superficially.
