Fat Tip #52 - Jamba Juice Type Places
Avoid those fruit smoothie places like Jamba Juice or Robeks as they are nothing but glorified slurpees that cost you around $4-5 dollars. You can simply get a non-nutritious and sugar filled slurpee from your local 7-11 for $1-2, without the embarrassment of saying stupid names such as Mango-a-go-go or Strawberry Surf Rider.

Fat Tip #51 - White Rice vs. Brown Rice
Much like hybrid cars, organic foods, and Jennifer Lopez… do not fall for trends. The current food/health trend I’m talking about is brown rice as a substitute for white rice. Like pretty much all whole grain foods, brown rice is grittier, chewier, and tastes awful compared to the much superior soft and fluffy white rice.
Need another reason? Most or all Asian countries consider brown rice to be inferior rice.
"In much of Asia, brown rice is associated with poverty and wartime shortages, and in the past was rarely eaten except by the sick, the elderly, and as a cure for constipation."- Wikipedia
A few billion people can’t be wrong? Right?

Fat Tip #50 - Dental Floss
Want to gain a few extra calories before going to bed or at the start of the morning? Instead of using regular boring dental floss, add some real flavor and substitute it with a Red Vine Licorice! Your dentist may not recommend it, but at least you’re flossing once, twice, three, or a dozen times a day!
Extra Fat Tip: Gurgle with Dr. Pepper or any other non-diet soda after you’re done brushing and flossing.

Fat Tip #48 - Tortilla Chips
Instead of using spoons, use tortilla chips to scoop up anything off your plate to your mouth hole. Make sure to use double the tortilla chip to prevent the edible spoon from breaking when you eat foods like ice cream.

Fat Tip #47 - Grocery Shopping
Buy all of your groceries from any 99 Cents stores or dollar stores. Any edible products there are more likely to be highly processed and fattening. Imagine all of the money you save too from shopping at these places.

Fat Tip #46 - Nacho Slurpee
Did you know there’s a hidden Slurpee flavor at your local 7-11?
It’s the self-serving nacho cheese dispenser! Take that 44 oz. Big Gulp and fill it up to the brim with that delicious yellow goo. Be creative and dispense both cheese and chili into the cup and sprinkle it with jalapeños. Typically, this is frown upon by the 7-11 clerks, so we recommend topping off with real Slurpee (our favorite is Cherry) to conceal the real prize.

Fat Tip #45 - Housing
We suggest moving into a studio apartment as a typical home or apartment that contains numerous door frames or narrow hallways, can be difficult to maneuver through in the future. If you can’t find a unit that isn’t on the first floor, make sure the building has an industrial elevator for heavy lifting.
