Jets 0-2 vs bills this year. Does Rex Ryan survive the year?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.
santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:05 AM) Mehta is an idiot
santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:32 AM) I'm with 0099...I hope they keep getting destroyed
Chaos Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:33 AM) it's a very Jets-esque move to sign McCoy if he does well
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 11:53 AM) I think they sign RGIII, Cutler, or Bradford
santana Icon : (26 November 2014 - 12:10 PM) why not all three
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 November 2014 - 12:11 PM) Knowing this team, I wouldn't put that past them

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:00 PM) Scanning the field and making quick decisions, I like how Chip has Sanchez throwing on the run which he was always great at.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:01 PM) I really hope we finally bring in a good offensive minded coach.

Beer Bellies A Myth?


Author: Andrea Nichol





Typically, the beer belly has been considered a man’s province
or tendency as over time, and with much flexing of arm muscles
as they bring glass to mouth, the belly grows with age and
consumption. Usually, when women gain weight, they often do so
first on their thighs and hips, not their bellies. Women may
develop a pot belly, but it is rarely referred to as a beer
belly and is likely caused by age and childbirth.



Researchers in Britain and the Czech Republic surveyed close to
2000 Czechs in their study that asked the question: Is there an
association between beer and obesity? The citizens of the Czech
Republic are generally regarded as and have the honour to be the
world’s biggest beer drinkers. Dr. Martin Bobak from University
College London and researchers at the Institute of Clinical and
Experimental Medicine in Prague examined 891 men and 1,098 women
between the ages of 25 and 64. All of the participants drank
either no alcohol or only beer. There were only a few heavy
drinkers. The participants were given a questionnaire and a
medical examination during which their weight, waist-to-hip
ratio and body mass index were measured. The conclusion? The
association between beer and obesity, if it exists, is probably
weak.








Then where does that rounded belly come from? Professor Morton
Gronbeck of the Centre for Alcoholic research in Copenhagen,
claims that binge drinkers tend to have more of an
“apple-shaped” body. There is some indication that binge
drinkers are more frequently apple-shaped, but if the amount of
beer drunk is spread out over the week, it will not provoke the
apple-shaped beer belly. This suggests that if beer drinkers
drink in moderation and not in a binge fashion, they will not
develop a beer belly.



Furthermore, some scientists believe that genetic make-up and
not beer could be to blame for the beer belly. A team at the
University of Naples examined natural variations in the genes
found in men. They found that one variant, labelled “DD,” is
linked to developing fat around the stomach. Not all men have
it so this study suggests that only those with this gene will
get beer bellies. Which came first, the gene or the beer belly?
If a man has the DD gene, he is twice as likely to develop a
beer belly, but not necessarily from beer. If he binge drinks,
he will probably get a beer belly. If a man does not have the
DD gene, but he drinks copious amounts of beer, will he get a
beer belly? Is he genetically able to develop one? He might,
but what about the other factors involved in drinking beer?



According to most diet plans, alcohol and weight loss don’t
mix. Alcohol has almost twice the amount of calories than
carbohydrates or protein. Alcohol can lessen the body’s ability
to burn stored fat both chemically and actively. Perhaps one
reason is that the last thing drinkers want to do while
drinking good beer is to get off that bar stool and exercise.



Have you ever tried to stick to a diet while drinking? It’s
almost impossible. If judgment while drinking is too impaired
to drive a car, how can drinkers make healthy choices when
faced with natchos and nuts to go with their beer? Also, many
people would prefer to drink their calories during alcohol
consumption and alcohol is not very nutritious, nor is it low
in calories.



How can beer drinkers avoid a beer belly? As diet gurus have
told us for years, moderation in all things promotes good
health including a healthy body weight and shape. Beer bellies
may not be the true result of drinking beer, but beer drinking
is certainly an influence over aspects of diet and lifestyle
that may cause that jiggly tummy called a beer belly.

Generally beer bellies are a result of weak abdominal muscles, fat and a tight lower back. If the person never does anything to strengthen the abdominal muscle region it will start drooping and sagging. Compound this with never stretching out the lower back will begin to tighten which will cause the stomach to push out even further.





To begin to lose the beer belly if need to tighten up the diet and begin an exercise program. You should include cardio training with strength building exercises. Right after the strength training stretch out your body to put elasticity into your lower back and hamstrings (backside of your legs). If you have trouble developing a program find a personal trainer to help you.[weight loss]
