Dear John,

Throughout the spring, the Midwest has been flooded with record rainfall. The US Wellness Meats headquarters in Lewis County, Missouri, received more than 5 inches of rain this week alone, flooding the banks of creeks, streams, and rivers. Too often, when the flood water recedes, it takes with it soil and other matter, disrupting the delicate ecological balance of both the land and the water. Erosion, the movement of soil via water or wind, strips land of vital nutrients and pollutes water sources at the same time. Although we have little control over the flooding, we can all do our part to help prevent erosion:

  • plant grass, vegetative ground cover, trees, or shrubs on shores, banks, and sloping land
  • cover bare land with straw or mulch
  • utilize drainage structures to collect excess runoff
  • follow storm water management rules appropriate to your area when disturbing soil for construction, landscaping, or other projects
  • support grassland farmers by choosing grass-fed beef

Eating grass-fed beef promotes the conservation of our precious natural resources and prevents erosion. Grass is a dense mat of vegetation, providing a more secure ground cover than a field of crops, which is bare a portion of the year and is often tilled, creating the potential for erosion and runoff. Proper grazing management of grass-fed cattle is beneficial to the soil and can help grass grow and spread. Cattle act as natural re-seeders and fertilizers for soil. In addition to nourishing the soil, pasture also provides a healthy environment for a variety of native plants and wildlife.

The farm families of US Wellness Meats are proud of their commitment to enhance the nutrition of families and protect delicate ecosystem balance by providing quality grass-fed beef.

Dad's Day is just around the corner. Great food selections are a true gift of love that not only expresses appreciation for Dad's many virtues but will nourish family and friends simultaneously with the great tasting products offered by U.S. Wellness Meats.

Don't forget the cards and letters!

Warmest regards,

John, Lee Ann, Megan, Lacey and McKenzie on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

    Hi Dr. Serrano,

    I've been eating grass-fed meats, raw dairy, high omega-3 eggs from a local farmer, and organic produce for almost 4 years now. I am a 46-year old woman who is covered with cellulite from my shoulders to my knees and need to loose approximately 20 pounds. I'm 5'8", and currently weigh 176 Lbs. and take no meds. I don't eat tons of grains or fruits. Mostly sprouted bread and one chocolate chip cookie after dinner. I eat more eggs, raw cheese and beef or chicken than anything else. Protein and fat keep my blood sugar balanced so that's what I eat.

    Until just recently, I spent 9 years caring for my invalid mom who had lots of serious health issues, so sleep and stress were huge issues for me. Now, I have a chance to be more physically active with way less stress and better sleep. I'm doing 1/2 hour yoga most days, 45-minute spinning video several days a week, some surfing and leisurely bike riding.

    Before I started on grass-fed foods, I had lost 50 pounds quite rapidly due to Wellbutrin & Weight-Watchers. My hair was falling out and my nails breaking, so even though I was eating and felt full, obviously my body was starving. I figured some of the weight I gained was due to my body hoarding in case of another "famine" but I thought after 4 years of eating plenty of healthy foods, it might have recovered by now.

    How active do I need to be to get this cellulite off and get back to a decent weight? Do I need to something different with my meals? I usually eat 3 meals with snacks. I really appreciate any help you can give me!!! I don't want to waste time doing all the "wrong" things. Life's too short.

    Thanks in Advance,



    Dear K.W.

    I want to wish you the best, because I am going through the same situation and I know how hard it is to take care of a parent. You are an incredible person, and I hope I get to meet you personally some day.

    Taking care of your mom puts your life on hold and it is extremely difficult to keep up with your own health.

    I also want to say congratulations on your weight loss, impressive, and a great job you must continue. I don't have enough data to give you an exercise program, and by the number of questions John should throw a conference in organic eating, exercise and health and I will be the first one at the conference.

    K.W., you are 46 years old and based on what you are telling me you were obese in the past and having a very stressful life due to your mom, causing the problems you are having now. You are going to think that I am crazy but the best way to lose your weight, is not only eating right but also lifting weights and doing HIIT. HIIT is high intensity interval training but again I don't have enough information to make any recommendations right now so I am going to give you some guidelines to help you lose more weight, and I am going to give you two phone numbers of trainers that can create lifting programs for a person like you.

    K. W., you are going to have a long life, because you are an incredible person with a humongous drive. I am also assuming because you stated you surf and spin that you are in descent shape and i am going to base those guidelines on that:

    1-Before you start your exercise program, please get your blood checked for Thyroid deficiency, including TSH, T4, T3, insulin, lipid screen, cbc, DHEA, hormones, vitamin D, B12 and folate, zinc and selenium, Hgb1Ac, and lead and mercury, due to your symptoms.

    2-start lifting ( I highly recommend Sam Visnic at (310) 349-6403 in California (Sam can order all your blood test) or call John Thoma (614) 571-5200 or Mark Harmon (419) 230-9853). I have given different numbers due to regions in the USA

    3-use your spinning to do HIIT- I will do it this way right now, 15 seconds full go( as fast as you can) and 30 seconds leisure (enough to catch your breath) and the 15 seconds should add to a total of 12 minutes initially, start slow and then increase the intervals

    4-rotate fruits, never fruit juices

    5-stay with a low carb diet but start loading with a carbo load day or a fat load, if John wants I, will write an article about this subject 6-never consume the same amount of calories, see above, because the body gets used to it.

    7-rotate proteins also

    8-if supplementing use enzymes, fish oils, and amino acids

    9- no cheeses for now; unless, using a fat loading day

    10-no sweets

    11-water, no pop, juices or teas unless unsweetened.

    Thank you and good luck.

    Dr. Serrano
