Belated New Year's greetings! The 2007 pace
has picked up where 2006 left off as more of our
readers figure out the difference in protein
choices. We are honored and indebted by your word
of mouth enthusiasm for grass-fed free range protein
choices. U.S. Wellness is honored to be surrounded
by the elite 3%
group of savvy consumers. With more education, we
hope to see that number grow a point or two in 2007.
This past weekend U.S. Wellness participated in a
Lighten Up Iowa event in Keokuk, Iowa.
We met some
wonderful folks in and around Keokuk where the
states of Iowa, Missouri and Illinois intersect at
the junction of the Des Moines and Mississippi
Rivers. In the midst of the excitement, we were
exposed to spell binding keynote speaker
Ellison M.Sc. Mr. Ellison introduced
highlights of his
Myths Exposed, from the eyes of a former
fortune 500 research drug chemist with several myth
shockers in his presentation. Mr. Ellison also
explained how a grass-fed diet can lead to weight
and a host
of other advantages.
Please note Mr. Ellison's guest article Fat for
Energy and Raw Athletic Power in this edition
which illustrates the value of smart fats
in athletes and every day Americans.
Again, your patronage is graciously appreciated.

The Lion Diet vs. The Rhino Diet
By Al Sears, MD
You many not realize it, but you’re genetically

To stay healthy and avoid being overweight, you
need to eat the foods you were

of our hunter-gatherer

Fat for Energy and Raw Athletic
By Shane Ellison, M.Sc.
The People's Chemist
Eating fat in general does not make you fat. Eating
unhealthy fat does. Knowing
the difference between the types of fat will ensure
that you do not suffer from
deficiencies in fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E
and K. The consequence can
be obesity, low energy, poor concentration, unsightly
skin complexion and
depression. Clinical manifestations include insulin
resistance, type II
diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
fat is essential for proper growth,
development, athletic performance
and maintenance of good health. It provides your
body with vital energy without
causing you to gain weight. In sharp contrast to
carbohydrates and sugar,
healthy fat tells your body to burn fat and makes you
feel fuller quicker! These
positive attributes of fat are often overlooked. But
they are real.
