Debunking the calorie theory

Mike Furci Calorie Theory.

If you want to lose weight you have to cut your calorie intake, right? That might be true if your body metabolized all calories in the same way. It doesn’t, so you need to know a little bit more if you want to shed those extra holiday pounds.

Bullz-Eye’s Mike Furci recently posted an article debunking the “calorie theory” of fat loss. Here’s a quick look at the kinds of things you need to know in order to lose body fat:

The efficiency at which a person burns food as fuel decreases as they get fatter. In other words, the higher a person’s body fat percentage, the more adept they are at storing food as body fat. This is because a higher body fat percentage and insulin insensitivity have a linear relationship, causing an extraordinary release of insulin when food is consumed. The macro-nutrient that is responsible for these large surges of insulin is carbohydrates. This can be a nightmare for any person, especially somebody who is overweight and trying to lose body fat.

There is a lot to know, but Mike Furci does a great job of breaking down the basics so you can get the most out of your workouts and starting eating right for a fit body. Head over to for his full article on debunking the calorie theory.

Bullz-Eye reviews the 2011 Dodge Durango

Dodge Durango review.

The Durango may have been shelved for a short while, but now that it’s back, Bullz-Eye was glad to give it a test drive. The model has traditionally been known for its bulky road presence. For 2011, Dodge refined the exterior for a sleek, sporty look and improved the driving experience in an effort to give the SUV broader appeal.

Here’s an excerpt from the Bullz-Eye Dodge Durango review:

The new exterior design offers a more refined but still powerful look that will make it more appealing than a crossover, particularly to the male market. It sportsDodge’s signature cross-hair grille and has the look and feel of a powerful vehicle. Dodge CEO Ralph Gilles described it as a “forward-leaning” design and it fits in nicely with the new Dodge lineup. I’m not a fan at all of the chrome-plated wheels that the American brands keep offering as an option, but fortunately buyers can avoid this option if they like.

King of Shaves delivers!

If your purchasing or just surfing for men’s shaving online most likely you’ve heard of King of Shaves. I exchanged some emails from their team and decided to review some of their products. I really liked how the shave gel, face balm and razor were packaged into a clear plastic container that is perfect for air travel.

We first tested the AphaGel Shave Gel for Sensitive Skin and we felt the quality in this product when first applied. The ShaveGel is Dermatologically tested without any fragrance. The company claims the low-foam formula helps protect, moisturize and lubricate your skin throughout the shave giving excellent razor performance and glide. Ideal for sensitive skin and we found that to be true.

Next up was the razor that came with the travel kit. The razor works like a charm and has the award winning Azor System Razor which features unique flexible hinges that allow the four long-lasting Endurium blades to follow every contour of your face whilst pressing the blades progressively closer onto the skin for a superbly comfortable yet close shave. I then went right to the King of Shaves Face Balm which employs a unique Skin Surface Enhancing technology, with Hydrocreatine to protect, moisturise and condition your skin leaving it non-greasy, supple and smooth. Formulated with menthol to give you a cool, refreshed feel. I foind this to be one of the better after shave balms I have tried and the price is very reasonable.

For my next shave I tried the King of Shaves Shave Oil which protects, moisturizes and lubricates your skin throughout the shave giving superlative razor performance and glide. Your face will be left smooth, supple and moisturized. Up to 100 shaves from one bottle is no joke for small a small travel friendly package. I really enjoyed this product and I’m using it today as it really soothes your face and delivers one of the best shaves you could image. Top notch!

Overall the products we tested from King of Shaves were of high quality, practical and packaged properly.


Bullz-Eye’s Mike Furci talks cardiovascular disease

Brushing your teeth.Bullz-Eye’s fitness expert Mike Furci put together an article recently that covers a lot of popular health and fitness rumors and myths. Some are true, some aren’t, and Mike uses the latest research to discuss these fitness trends over on

Here’s just one of his ‘Did You Know’ sections:

Did you know inflammation, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and brushing your teeth are all related? A study of 11,869 men and women mirrors previous research and finds a link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease. Participants were asked how often they visited the dentist and how often they brushed their teeth. 62% of the participants reported regular (at least every six months) visits to a dentist and 71% reported good oral hygiene (brushing teeth twice a day). There were 555 CVD events over an 8.1 year average follow-up, which resulted in 170 deaths. 74% of the CVD reported was coronary heart disease. Participants who reported less frequent tooth brushing had a 70% increased risk of a CVD event compared with participants who brushed their teeth twice a day.
