Nutrition, Facts and Theories

"I never guess. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

A Few Quick Notes

Following are a few notes I gathered from some of my reading:
Grains are not healthy and are toxic to the body.The low-carb diet is a superior diet for weight loss, lipid control, blood pressure lowering, blood sugar stabilization, GERD ridding and more.Fructose is a harmful sugar with a low glycemic index.Avoiding sugar and other intensely sweet foods lets the receptors become more sensitive, which is why foods not normally thought of as sweet – say, green beans – taste kind of sweet after a period of sugar deprivation.Avoid vegetable oils like you would death.Consume meat, cheese, salad and green vegetables for weight lossI told him I had lost my weight eating a ton of steak and had continued to do so.Train intensely in short intervals.Treat sugars and starches like cigarettes.Low Carb + Metabolic Resistance Training works really fast for weight loss.You mentioned you gave your boys protein shakes and they got all the protein and fat they need, but where did the fat come from?

In Memory of Paul Franz Eilers

Husband, Father and Overcomer
Paul Franz Eilers grew up in an environment where pain and rejection were normal. Most of us cannot possibly identify with the life that he lived as a child.

Many that knew him say a book should be written about it. But in the end, God used sadness to create a wonderful gladness.

He was born in Alabama on April 22, 1938 to a German father and an American mother. It was during the hardship years of the Great Depression, jobs were scarce and it was a struggle to support a wife and young family.

So Alfred Eilers decided to move the family to his native Germany, where the Eilers family had considerable wealth and his job prospects were much better.

Unfortunately, it was also the beginning of World War II. Almost as soon as they were settled, Alfred Eilers was drafted into the German military and in short order sent to the Russian front. Shortly thereafter, he was killed in action.

At the time of his father’s death, Paul was just two years old.

The Myths of Network Marketing

Myths are a unique phenomena. They begin with a seed of truth and mushroom into a story of grand fictional proportion. Homer's Ulysses. The Loch Ness monster. Almost any myth you choose to explore has at least a kernel of truth. However, the truth becomes barely discernible or completely lost in the fabric of the story surrounding it.

Network marketing has its own set of myths, most of them destructive, that can at times obscure the essence of the possibilities inherent in network marketing. In this article, we explore the most common myths surrounding network marketing. You'll recognize once again why network marketing, of which you are an important part, is such a terrific business system.

If Your Weight Loss Efforts Have Stalled

"The low-carb diet is a wonderful, healthful way to lose weight quickly, but you do have to watch your calories as well to a certain extent. If you're plugging along losing away, keep doing what you're doing. But if you quit losing, take a look at your cheese and nut consumption. Cut those out, and I’ll just about guarantee that your weight loss will pick up again." - Dr. Micheal Eades, M.D.

Middle Aged and Stomach Fat

"If you are middle aged and have a lot of visceral (internal abdominal) fat, you're in greater danger from this fat than just simply being overweight." - Mike Callaghan, from the blog The 6 Week Cure

Why We Get Fat

A new book has recently caught my attention. It's called "Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It," written by a science journalist, Gary Taubes.

His hypothesis is too much insulin is making us fat. It's not about eating less. It's not about overeating. It's about energy, says Taubes, and how it's used in our bodies.

If we eat a lot of carbohydrates, it causes too much insulin production. We then to deal with the increased blood sugar in our system. Insulin eats glucose, or sugar, in the blood to put it simply.

If we consome less carbohydrates (glucose), then our insulin will resort to stored body fat for energy.

The challenge is the vicious cycle of being fat causes us to crave even more carbohydrates and sugar. This raises insulin levels and keeps body fat in storage. It snowballs - more fat and more carbs equals more fat.

"Why We Get Fat" - A Book Review

Gary Taubes, author of Good Calories and Bad Calories, has come out with a new book. Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It is an updated summary of that earlier work, much quicker and easier to read.

When it comes to weight loss, the current thinking is to simply eat less and exercise more. Yet this tells us nothing as to why we actually accumulate fat. In short, weight loss is all about insulin. Keep your insulin levels properly moderated and you will lose excess body fat - without dieting or exercise.

Tom Naughton at the blog Fat Head has an excellent review of Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It. Head over there right now and and see what he has to say about Gary Taubes' latest book.

How Does a Cold Last?

"Most colds last between eight and nine days, but about 25 percent last two weeks, and 5-10 percent last three weeks. How quickly your cold is resolved has a lot to do with your general lifestyle habits and the state of your immune system." - Dr. Joseph Mercola
