RIP Jack LaLanne

The Godfather of working out and eating healthy, Jack LaLanne is dead at 96.

Among other things, LaLanne was at the forefront of eating naturally to be healthy long before Michael Pollan and others came on the scene. He is credited with saying: "If man made it, don't eat it."

Another notable quote: "The only way you can hurt the body is not use it," LaLanne said. "Inactivity is the killer and, remember, it's never too late."

If you go to YouTube and search for old Jack LaLanne clips from is old show, what really strikes you is just how sane his advice was to lose weight and be fit. He essentially said, move more and eat better.

His advice is just as relevant now as it was thirty years ago.

Which makes it so sad to think that we, as a nation, have gotten lazier and fatter since then.

We miss you Jack!!
