No matter how well you eat (meaning your diet consists of mostly fats, secondly proteins, and fresh, colorful veggies), you'll be tempted to eat something else. And that "else" will be bad for you! Like, "Oh man that Cherry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Custard looks ... Read the Rest Now! about Charcoal Away That Bad Stuff!
No matter how well you eat (meaning your diet consists of mostly fats, secondly proteins, and fresh, colorful veggies), you’ll be tempted to eat something else.
If you limit such an event to be a truly rare one, you can virtually eliminate the bad effects with the pill!
Note: Although I lived Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Body for a year and a half, I must say that his cheat days really can hinder progress. You will see constant progress but it’s far too slow and the carb-hit most of us take on that day is a massive shock. I strongly urge you to forego that and have a cheat item that you really look forward to once in a while. And take the pill to reverse even that!
Let’s Charcoal – Here’s The Pill
It’s true. One (or two) pills can basically reverse the bad effects of a bad good treat.
It’s a lot easier than the ol’ Two Throated Thumbs to Thinner Thighs purge-after-splurge. And healthier too!
Take one or two activated charcoal pills. Yep, these literally are made from charcoal.
Warning: Various forms exist, most are probably fine, but these made from ground, burnt coconut shells seems to be the highest quality and most effective.
That’s right. Black, dusty, dirty charcoal cleans great!
I discussed activated charcoal when I ghost-wrote the book, Natural Detox – 8 Cheap Ways to Detox and Cleanse Your Body for Jennifer Jolan.
(I just looked through that little powerful book. It’s got some great advice in it. But of course it does, I wrote it.)
People can brush their teeth with it (rinse well!) to help maintain healthy, clean, white teeth.
Charcoal filters in the best water filter ever invented clean your water of everything bad.
Charcoal in little, portable masks can save your life in a building fire or airplane emergency by cleaning the air you breathe.
And after you eat something you shouldn’t have, take one or two activated charcoal pills. The bad stuff binds well to the charcoal and exits your system more than it otherwise do.
Activated charcoal is just good stuff. Some of the less costly activated charcoal is from Source Naturals. There are others better and lower quality, but the Source Naturals 100% Pure this is a good entry-level activated charcoal if you’re budget conscious but still want a decent brand.
Here’s the best quality for the money that I’ve found:
I like the Bulletproof Upgraded Coconut Charcoal because it seems to me to be a little lowered-powered than the others. I can adjust the dosage a little better. I can take one if I didn’t eat too badly, or two and even three (rare) if more uumph is needed. I’ve found taking two daily for 4 days (while on a trip to Austin recently) didn’t have the usual side effect (which is fairly minor: stool darkening and possibly minor constipation after a few days; just drink a lot of water, you’ll be fine even if you take any of them several days in a row). The Bulletproof brand produced no expected and completely minor side effect that the others can bring about.
Note: One thing I failed to say in the book I wrote for Jennifer is that activated charcoal binds to everything possible. Don’t take it within a couple of hours or taking vitamins and minerals or it’ll leech those right out of you along with the dessert you indulged in.
In the Car Backup
Except in hot summer, keep a few backups in your car in case you find yourself in the middle of an unplanned piece of pie.
You’ll thank me for this.
It’s the time of year when lukewarm, willfully-ignorant christians (lowercase c) start blasting every social media account they have with:
“You can be thankful for the birth of Jesus EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR *except* December 25th because 1,500 years ago THAT was a pagan holiday!!!”
First of all, nobody on earth would know it was a pagan holiday if you didn’t keep preaching it every Christmas.
Second, it’s wonderful to take a date or event meant for evil and turn it into something good. God often does that throughout His Book. I bet you hate it when He does this.
Taking what was meant for evil and using it for good takes the emphasis completely off the original use. That is, until you come along and teach people it’s somehow still a pagan holiday.
Third, no actual Christian necessarily believes or cares that He wasn’t born on December 25th. We’re not celebrating the date, we’re celebrating the event.
Fourth, your rants harm the witness of true Christians.
But… You. Just. Don’t. Care.
Warning: I’m going to Make You Feel Guilty about Not Reading More Books
“The more books you read, the taller you grow.” ~ Lewis Meyer
I wasn’t a big fan of Lewis Meyer. But he ran a great bookstore.
Lewis Meyer’s Bookshelf, in Tulsa, Oklahoma on the “Restless Ribbon,” Peoria, was a mainstay, a retail Tulsa landmark, for decades. As a young kid, I’d go there and could appreciate his bookshop for the individual qualities it offered: A rich assortment of books, impeccable service, and a weird owner, Lewis Meyer, who was sort of likable and not at the same time.
The Time to Create Books
As the author of more than 100 titles and approaching 4,000,000 in lifetime books sold, I greatly appreciate the amount of time that goes into crafting a book. What takes us 2 to 20 hours to read might have taken the author months of effort, research, sweat, and love.
Literally, entire years have been spent writing single books.
Your Time to Digest Books
Books are one of the highest-leveraged tools at your disposal.
If your desire is to improve yourself, escape into a fictional world, or learn a specific skill, books are our first avenue of fulfillment. Yes, YouTube has tons of great how-to videos, tons of fiction being read, and so on. Yes, podcasts offer tons of great fiction and non-fiction avenues for you to master skills and escape in hearing stories read to you. Yes, Audible is the fastest-growing entity in anything related to books right now, a plethora of amazing books that you can digest while driving or going to sleep.
Books: The Highest Leverage Possible
Remember above, I said that a book that took as long as a year to write is one you can usually read in two to twenty hours. Do you grasp what that means? You spend 2 to 20 hours of your life learning every word, literally, another person is trying to convey to you which took that other person up to a year or more to create!
As little as 2 hours to gain a year’s worth of effort is without a doubt, the highest payback in time you will ever experience.
Some of us are visual learners and learn best by reading. I’m one of those kinds, so it’s the kind you should be too! But, in spite of wanting to be just like me, other people are auditory learners. They learn or digest information better when they hear it. For skills, many people learn best by watching someone else demonstrate the skill. Videos are their best way to learn.
Note: For the purists out there, I do not actually consider a physical book any better at providing this leverage than an eBook. The reading of the words, whether on paper or on a screen, is the most personal leverage you can gain from another’s writing efforts. Yes, a physical book offers amazing smells and tactile feedback that many of us still love, but the content being read is the key, not the type of media the words appear on.
Under $3 and Under 20 Hours!
More than a million books are available to you, downloadable in under a minute even on slow connections, at under $3 on Amazon.
More than four million books are available to you in physical form, delivered to your front door by tomorrow if you want it rushed, or even within the next two hours in many cities!
And yet, it’s my sad suspicion that many of you have not digested an actual book, read its words, tasted those words the way the author meant for you to taste the words, in… over a year? … years?
If you don’t read one book a month, really read the book, you know what I mean now, you just throw away the highest-leverage on the planet that can be yours. And one book a month is nothing.
I know it’s blunt to say, but if you don’r read even one book a quarter, then you don’t want to improve yourself as much as you lie to yourself about wanting to improve yourself.
Now that my office is in the city, and the city is once again soon to be our home (the timing of which was not our choosing), I fear growing into one of those:
“…old guys who go to the coffee shop every morning and hang out with all the other old guys.”
My Brilliant Solution
So to keep this from ever happening, over the next 50 years I’ll only frequent hipster coffee bars.
Note: If you want to frequent only the very best then you’ll visit Doubleshot Coffee Company in Tulsa. Here is hands-down proof that Doubleshot serves the “Perfect Cappuccino”: The Perfect Cappuccino FINALLY Located!
The tolerant Left hates you and wants all of us to die, but they want us to shut up in the meantime.
Facebook and Twitter constantly censor us. If they aren’t kicking right-wing Christians, libertarians, and even “conservative” homos off their membership rolls, they are performing a shadowing censorship so your posts don’t get seen by most people.
Note: This is not my imagination, Vox Day and many others are getting booted from Twitter daily. I should be close to “next in line.”
For 2 years I’ve warned you to get your own blog now.
Until you’re forced to, there’s a great solution to use NOW to speak all the truth you want without shadow censorship or getting kicked off completely: Gab!
My video below tells you my first four hours with Gab. Now, go thou and do likewise.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The idea is that you put the lead – the catchiest part of the story up front. The idea, adopted well by successful marketers, makes sense. If you put the catchiest sound bite or part of the story or advertisement (a “punch line” if you will) in the middle, you’re burying the lead. It’s well-known that you’re losing viewers by not catching their attention at the start with your article’s lead.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Leading You Down the Wrong Path
The lead is stuff found in a pencil.
Lead is also what good Leaders do.
But lede is the first sentence in a story, the story grabber, the biggest advertising benefit, the catchiest or juiciest part of your story.
So, let’s begin this post again.
Getting It Right
You may have heard the phrase, “Don’t bury the lede.” You might think this is an ironclad rule in writing, especially when reporting events in blogs, websites, newspapers, and newscasts.
That is absolutely true.

Bonus Learning Tutorial for You!
I’m nothing if not helpful.
While it makes some sense that we think “lead” when we hear “lede,” I have another useful bit of news-writing–related knowledge to teach you.
The word news doesn’t come from writing about something that just happened, something that is “new.”
The word news comes from the acronym of these words: North, South, East, and West.
You didn’t know that, did you?
Armed with all this new knowledge, you’re really going to impress all your friends at the next cocktail party you attend!
For one, I do. If you want to discuss the triviality of knowing the correct lede as opposed to getting it wrong 100% of the time by thinking it’s lead, then get your own blog Buster!
As for me and my house, we know the importance of accurate language when trying to communicate with others. This is doubly true for writing, as opposed to podcasts and broadcasts (and Godcasts!), because today it’s more difficult to get something read than to get something heard. Public school graduates can barely read better than their public school teachers. This makes being accurate even more important.
When you write, who cares if you bury the lead?
Never ever bury the lede though.

When you want to save money at Christmas, you only have to look to the nearest liberal for help.
Use The Liberal’s Extreme Conceit
Liberals are the most extreme narcissists on the planet. Nobody takes more selfies of themselves.
Their need for constant self-affirmation grows as they quickly learn that nobody with a brain cell ever gives them any affirmation.
Save the Dough!
Tens of millions of liberal selfies are taken daily. For the first time in history, you now have a way to use liberals to your advantage. The Left has always cost you money, but now you have a way to turn their narcissism into saved cash!
It’s just Good Science.
