From my country-in-law of Bulgaria comes a truly cringe-worthy fail…
The video of a woman auditioning for Bulgarian Idol goes viral after she mystifies the show’s judges by attempting to sing Mariah Carey’s ‘Without You’, without even the foggiest knowledge of its English lyric.
The result, ‘ken lee’ (which is how she sounded out the words can’t live) has millions of hits on YouTube, and inspired my subject line today.
*So jokes*, as the kiddies say.
One question I’m often asked (well, I was asked once), is “Con, if you were stranded on a deserted island and could bring a lifetime supply of ONE supplement, what would it be?”
Now there’s a tasty slice of mind pie.
And without question (or with question, since the question was indeed asked) my answer is the omega 3 fatty acids I consume, either in the form of organic flax seed oil, or fish oil.
Why, you ask?
Here’s a brief breakdown:
*They combat inflammation, an effect I appreciated during my 13WK transformation challenge when I rid myself of chronic bicep and elbow tendinitis
*They encourage fat release, something I always appreciate
*They boost immunity, so you get sick less often, or hardly ever. Need I say it? Ok, I appreciate that too
*Because over half of our brain consists of lipids that make up cell membranes, consuming good fats means higher quality nerve cell action. Me likey more smartey
*And that’s just the short list
Granted, on an island I’d probably find lots of nuts and seeds, and would eventually learn to fish so that sources of my darling nutrient would be abundant.
But you get my drift.
Scientists estimate we consumed about 7,000mg of omega 3’s per day in our ancient diet, yet today the average is less than a fifth of that. Simply eating lots of fish is an imperfect solution due to its metal content (and not the good kind, like Iron Maiden). I don’t recommend more than 4-5 servings per week.
Anyway, that’s enough for now.

And if you ain’t already, start supplementing omega 3’s for a difference you ‘ken belee’.
