Most people get lost when it comes to health. It's a case of paralysis by analysis. There's too much information out there and trying to unravel it all becomes daunting and confusing. Who better to analyze all that data than the people who process data all day for a living.

A hilarious yet poignant video about the problematic Food Pyramid from the boys of South Park. They may go a bit overboard, but the comedy is in the irony. The more we seem to follow the pyramid, the unhealthier we get. Time to revise common health guidelines.

I Am Sam's Loser Mindset

I lose by 22 points and get submitted?

By Sam Yang - Get similar updates here

To boil down everything I talk about into one word, the word would be mindset. Mindset meaning, "The established set of attitudes held by someone."

Whether it's competition in sports, public speaking, or any intense activity, we are told that we need to think like a winner -- to be positive, to own the room. That's nice but we're all human. A lot of thoughts go through our heads very quickly and we can't control all of them. Sometimes you just have to let it go and think what you're going to think and let it pass on its own. I will never be able to remove all doubts, and I have come to accept them as a part of myself, it's something that keeps me sharp and informed.

I'm going to tell you a story about what went through my mind during a match in my last competition but frankly it's what goes through my mind during any intense situation.
