Who The Heck Is The Fit Dad?

Today I’m going to tell you a little story. It’s a comic book like story because...well because I’m a
superhero geek and I love comic books.
I’m going to tell you the story of the evil Dr. Fatty and his diabolical scheme to make and keep you fat.
Like all evil super-villains he has a legion of henchmen willing to do his evil fatty bidding.
I’ll start off with a role call of some of his more heinous buddies.
First up we have his sidekick Laze. He’s french, so
his name may look like “lazy”, but it’s pronounced more like laza (with a hard "a"). Silly guy.
Oddly enough, even though he’s Dr. Fatty’s main henchmen he’s not very active in his evil duties.
He’s very effective, just not too eager to work.
His special power is making you sit around doing absolutely nothing. He usually makes himself seem like
your best buddy in effort to win you over - but don't be fooled because he's pure evil.
Next up we have The Time Sucker. He’s quick to
point out that you have no time to work out, or anything fun for yourself - "Hobbies...no way, you've got no time
He’s the little devil on your shoulder always telling you that you’re too busy to workout, or that you’ve just
got too much to do so it’s OK to swing through the drive-thru and pick up a burger and fries...again.
He’s also that evil little demon who tells you that people who say you can get workouts done in around 10
minutes are stupid and don’t know what they’re talking about.
He’s about the nastiest of all the henchmen just because of his dirty little lies and how easy it is for you to
Last up we have the wolf in sheep’s clothing. This guy is really nasty because he looks good and sounds
good and a lot of other superheroes have bought into what he’s saying, unbeknownst to them he’s pure evil.
His name is Cardio King. You may have also heard of
his wife, Cardio Queen. They’ve got a lot of evil
kids that do their bidding like, “The Fat Burning Zone”
and “You Have To Do Cardio for 20 Minutes Before You Burn Any
Those are long names but cardio addicts are kinda crazy like that.
As I’ve said, they seem harmless enough and there’s even logic behind what they say and they have fooled a lot
of people into believing them.
That’s why they’re so valuable to Dr. Fatty and why he holds them in such high regard.
But they’re all evil...pure evil and they all want one thing.
That one thing is to trick you into believing that it’s too hard to lose weight and that you can’t lose the
fat you want and achieve the body you deserve.
They’re not out for world domination like so many other super-villains, they’re just out to do their best to
make you fat and unhealthy.
But who’s there to stop them?
Whoever can we call upon to come in and save the day?
Look! Up there! It’s a bird, it’s a plane...no it’s The Fit
Dad! (I hope the Superman people don’t sue me over that).
Here he comes to save the day!
The Fit Dad is here to smash the evil Dr. Fatty and all his evil henchmen to bits and pieces.
He’s here to squash each and every false teaching they proclaim as gospel.
He’s here to put an end to all the myths, lies and deception that the evil Dr. Fatty and his silly little
What’s The Fit Dad’s special power?
Is he super strong like Superman? Well yes he is kind of strong, but that won’t help much.
Is he super fast? No, not really. He did pretty poorly in track while in high school so speed isn’t
Can he fly? Ummmm, no. His leaping ability is just about as bad as his speed, so no jumping
Is he at least handsome?
Now there’s something he’s got. He’s a pretty handsome fella if he does say so himself.
Even though he’s a handsome fella, his special powers are those of breaking down all those myths and lies and
giving you the truth.
He’s here to deliver fast fat loss workouts to all the innocent moms and dads who have been deceived
by the evil Dr. Fatty and his evil goons.
He’s here to give you the most easy to understand nutritional and diet advice there is because he knows
sometimes things get a little confusing.
That evil Dr. Fatty is very good at being evil and he likes to put out a lot of misinformation at once which
makes it tough for the Fit Dad to counter it all, but that’s where his other superhero buddies come in.
The Fit Dad likes to talk about his other superhero buddies (like the prima donna Captain Fat Blaster) as well
as some other superheroes, some from Canada of all places, to come in and pick up the slack when the Fit Dad
They’ll deliver lots of great fat burning workouts, easy to understand nutritional tips and advice, not to
mention beat the evil Dr. Fatty and his evil henchmen into submission.
Not with his jumping ability, speed or kinda OK strength...and definitely not with his good looks, rather with
his ability to design the best fat loss workouts that can be done in 10 minutes, and some even in 4 minutes!
All to help you, the innocent bystander, keep the evil Dr. Fatty down.
It’s a tough job keeping Dr. Fatty, Laze, Cardio King and Queen (and their long-named kids) and The Time Sucker,
down but it’s a job worth taking for the Fit Dad and he’s more than willing to take it.
But he needs your help.
He needs you to put what he tells you into practice. He needs you to hear what he says and actually do it,
otherwise the evil Dr. Fatty will win and we don’t want that.
Dr. Fatty wreaks havoc wherever he goes and we need to stop him.
Can you help me...I mean can you help the Fit Dad?
Have a great day!
The Fit Dad, aka Ed
P.S. - I hope you found that at least slightly amusing. I had a ball writing it (as my wife can attest
with the constant smirk on my face). But it’s true. I am out to disspell all the myths out there, but I
need you to put into practice what I tell you.
I need you to trust me when I tell you that you can get great workouts done in only 10 minutes and that cardio,
as it pertains to fat loss, is largely overrated.
You can do it...I believe in you!
