What's Better for Breakfast, Bagels or Bacon?

BagelsThe age-old maxim "Eat breakfast like a king,lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper" may in fact be the best advice to follow to prevent metabolic syndrome, according to a new University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) study.

The study, published online March 30 in the International Journal of Obesity, examined the influence exerted by the type of foods and specific timing of intake on the development of metabolic syndrome characteristics in mice. The UAB research revealed that mice fed a meal higher in fat after waking had normal metabolic profiles. In contrast, mice that ate a more carbohydrate-rich diet in the morning and consumed a high-fat meal at the end of the day saw increased weight gain, adiposity, glucose intolerance and other markers of the metabolic syndrome.

"Studies have looked at the type and quantity of food intake, but nobody has undertaken the question of whether the timing of what you eat and when you eat it influences body weight, even though we know sleep and altered circadian rhythms influence body weight," said the study's lead author Molly Bray, Ph.D., professor of epidemiology in the UAB School of Public Health.

Bray said the research team found that fat intake at the time of waking seems to turn on fat metabolism very efficiently and also turns on the animal's ability to respond to different types of food later in the day. When the animals were fed carbohydrates upon waking, carbohydrate metabolism was turned on and seemed to stay on even when the animal was eating different kinds of food later in the day.

"The first meal you have appears to program your metabolism for the rest of the day," said study senior author Martin Young, Ph.D., associate professor of medicine in the UAB Division of Cardiovascular Disease. "This study suggests that if you ate a carbohydrate-rich breakfast it would promote carbohydrate utilization throughout the rest of the day, whereas, if you have a fat-rich breakfast, you have metabolic plasticity to transfer your energy utilization between carbohydrate and fat."

Bray and Young said the implications of this research are important for human dietary recommendations. Humans rarely eat a uniform diet throughout the day and need the ability to respond to alterations in diet quality. Adjusting dietary composition of a given meal is an important component in energy balance, and they said their findings suggest that recommendations for weight reduction and/or maintenance should include information about the timing of dietary intake plus the quality and quantity of intake.

"Humans eat a mixed diet, and our study, which we have repeated four times in animals, seems to show that if you really want to be able to efficiently respond to mixed meals across a day then a meal in higher fat content in the morning is a good thing," Bray said. "Another important component of our study is that, at the end of the day, the mice ate a low-caloric density meal, and we think that combination is key to the health benefits we've seen."

Bray and Young said further research needs to test whether similar observations are made with different types of dietary fats and carbohydrates, and it needs to be tested in humans to see if the findings are similar between rodents and humans.

"We're also working on a study right now to determine if these feeding regimens adversely affect heart function," Young said.

Not All Omega 3's Are Created Equal

"Fats" used to be all grouped together in one category. But this is no longer true. Fats have become a confusing array of food components including "good fats", "bad fats", saturated fats, unsaturated fats, monosaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and on and on. Part of this big fat picture are the omega 3 fats and omega 6 fats, which are a part of the polyunsaturated fat family.  

By now we are well aware of the benefits of omega 3 fats, and studies show that a diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids has a number of significant health benefits, including protection and prevention of:

    Coronary heart disease
    Hypertension
    Type 2 diabetes
    Renal disease
    Rheumatoid arthritis
    Ulcerative colitis
    Crohn's disease
    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
    Alzheimer's disease
    ADD/ADHD
    Depression and Aggression
    Cancer
    Immune system


The interesting thing about these health findings is that it is specific components in omega 3's that protect against many of these health conditions. And all omega 3 fats are not the same.

What are the important components that make up omega 3 fats that are necessary to our good health?

Teflon vs. My Grandmother
 
By: Al Sears, MD
 
Dear Readers,

I love to get in the kitchen on a Sunday morning. My favorite breakfast is three eggs cooked in butter with a side of grass-fed steak. Plenty of protein and omega-3s. My family wakes up to the delicious smell, and you can't beat the taste. We love steak and eggs.

But recently, I went back to the good old-fashioned cast-iron pots and pans my grandmother used to use. I threw out all my Teflon. As convenient as they are, I won't use them.

The chemical that manufacturers use to prevent food from sticking is called perfluorooctanoate acid (PFOA). This substance is highly toxic to the environment and to the human body.

When you cook with Teflon, the toxic chemical gets into your food. Plus, the toxic fumes are released into the air. You don't smell a thing. But anyone within breathing distance is in danger.

Most pet owners know, if you leave a Teflon pan on a hot stove, the fumes can kill your pet birds. Imagine what these fumes are doing to you and your family.

And it's not just Teflon pans...

PFOA is used in other slippery products as well. Things like cleaners, polishes, and shampoo.

No wonder DuPont, who makes Teflon, was sued by 15 states. And 3M, who makes Scotchgard, had to change its formula.

PFOA gets in your liver, kidneys, and thyroid gland. Men, it gets in your testes. It compromises your immune system.  It causes infertility, birth defects, and cancer. And it's not like washing germs off your hands. It stays in your body for decades.

Eliminate your exposure to this toxic substance wherever you can. This means thinking carefully about how you prepare your food at home. Consider using cast-iron cookware or enamel-coated pans.   

To help get these chemicals out of your body, add these natural supplements to your diet:

    Chlorella: Chlorella is a dried algae. It's a complete protein with anti-cancer and immune-building properties. It has been used for hundreds of years as a detoxifier. Take 500 mg per day to start and up to 20-30 g a day.

    Spirulina: Another high-protein algae, spirulina is an ancient detoxifier. Again, start with about 500 mg a day and up to 25 g a day.

    Cilantro: This is a delicious herb you can use in cooking and salads. I like to munch on it for a snack. You can eat as much as you want, the more the better. Start with a handful.

To protect your cells against damage, try this:

    Alpha Lipoic Acid: It's an antioxidant that detoxifies and protects your cells. It also helps other antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10 work better. Take 100 mg a day.

    SAMe: This is your liver's super nutrient. It helps to reverse the effect of chemicals. Take up to 200 mg a day.

    MSM:  A great detoxifier, MSM also provides relief from pain and allergies. Take 900 mg up to 3 times a day.

    Milk Thistle: Great for your liver, kidney, pancreas, and all organs affected by toxic exposure. Take 300-600 mg a day.

Why Saturated Fats Are Good For You

Low Fat Diet: Saturated With Lies
EggsBeefChicken.  Eggs.  Butter.  Coconut oil.  Do these saturated-filled words sound like weapons of health destruction?  According to current nutritional guidelines, I'm supposed to limit these foods because they'll either lead to obesity, cancer, heart disease, diabetes or some form of suffering for the rest of my life.  Many of you are nodding your heads in agreement right now.  

It's taken me a long time to realize that this is simply not true.  

When I became a fast food drop out in my early 20's, I turned to a low fat diet.  I trimmed fat any which way I could and didn't feel guilty when I broke down and ate low fat junk food.  I learned that low-fat junk food is still junk food, and a low-fat diet is still an unhealthy diet.  

Why Are Saturated Fats So Bad For You?
Men's Health published an excellent article that explained how saturated fats became known to be so bad.  The credit goes to a physiologist named Ancel Keys, Ph.D., who published a highly influential paper titled "Atherosclerosis, a Problem in Newer Public Health." Keys wrote that while the total death rate in the United States was declining, the number of deaths due to heart disease was steadily climbing. And to explain why, he presented a comparison of fat intake and heart disease mortality in six countries: the United States, Canada, Australia, England, Italy, and Japan.

The Americans ate the most fat and had the greatest number of deaths from heart disease; the Japanese ate the least fat and had the fewest deaths from heart disease. The other countries fell neatly in between. The higher the fat intake, according to national diet surveys, the higher the rate of heart disease, and vice versa. Keys called this correlation a "remarkable relationship" and began to publicly hypothesize that consumption of fat causes heart disease. This became known as the diet-heart hypothesis.

At the time, plenty of scientists were skeptical of Keys's assertions. One such critic was Jacob Yerushalmy, Ph.D., founder of the bio-statistics graduate program at the University of California at Berkeley. In a 1957 paper, Yerushalmy pointed out that while data from the six countries Keys examined seemed to support the diet-heart hypothesis, statistics were actually available for 22 countries. When all 22 were analyzed, the apparent link between fat consumption and heart disease disappeared. For example, the death rate from heart disease in Finland was 24 times that of Mexico, even though fat-consumption rates in the two nations were similar...

Author's Note:  I'm currently in grad school majoring in Leadership and Organizational Change.  I am working on a group project, which is based on a Montessori learning environment for inner city children.  We're using nutrition as the foundation for learning -- hands-on-approach to learning through planting, growing and cooking food.
 
We recognize that inner city children live in circumstances that prevent many of them from eating breakfast, and my plan is to to develop a healthy nutrition plan and make sure that they have food before their morning lesson.

Dear Dr. Serrano,
 
I want to share concerns regarding corn, for those with gluten intolerance.  Our beloved doctor, Dr. Patricia Kelly, in Ann Arbor, MI practiced as an M.D. using homeopathy for over forty years before retiring recently.  Her contributions to my family's health have been priceless.  One of the things she found among her patients with celiac disease/gluten-intolerances was that they did not handle corn well either.

After hearing this, one of my nieces removed corn from her diet, and in just four days, for the first time in her life, the pain in her gut was gone.  That was enough for me, and I removed corn from both my diet and my daughter's.  My nieces went on to realize that they have issues with citric acid, as it often contains corn.  Again, my nieces are my science, and I removed it from my daughter's diet as well as my own.  My nieces are in their twenties, and have been plagued with digestive issues their entire lives.  My daughter is only five and I strive to keep her body in better shape - which of course includes grass-fed meats!

 
Thank you for doing what you do!

C.G.
Birmingham, MI

Dear C.G.,

You are right, not because the allergens are similar but because most corn, no most sweet corn, in the U.S. is genetically modified and has proteins that I don't even know.  If I had a choice, and I had to eat grains, my two top choices will be rice and spelt, but spelt does have gluten in it.
 
If allergic to all grains, then I would use buckwheat.  Which by the way, is not a grain but a fruit, and it is great.
 
Congratulations, you are one awesome mom, and I hope this helps.
 
Thank You,

Dr. Serrano

Need A Training Lift?
By: Scott Mendelson


Scott,

I started the Extreme Crash Diet about a month ago and I have lost around 12 lbs which is great!  I am still not doing well with exercise- I am limited with time, do not want to go a gym and have no home equipment.  What can I do to help me burn fat faster with these limitations? 

Connie
Los Angeles

No equipment- Little Time to Spare- No Problem

Connie,

You can get a great workout using body weight moves with added rubber band tension.  The special bands can be set up in many ways to add resistance to movements so that you can gradually increase the difficulty of the exercises.  These bands are portable and easy to work with and have also come in very handy for my consultation clients who travel extensively and may have difficulty finding gyms.  The types of bands required for these exercises are made to deal with heavy tension, so do not use resistance cords or other items not specifically designed for these exercises.   Based on our discussions a month ago I was able to gather that you are not experienced with resistance training and that is ok.  Over time you can increase the band tension as your experience improves which is crucial for supporting fat loss.   More advanced trainees can benefit from additional workouts using the bands when using the correct program design.

Multiple Metabolic Activations Can Double the Rate of Fat Loss

Over the last 10 years I have found that the more Metabolic Activation Opportunities that clients create the better for rapid fat loss.   A few body weight workouts per week with added band tension can be the primary method of training for many people, while other clients can use these sessions to supplement other workouts done in a gym.  Dramatic increases in body fat loss can be earned when clients add a few 15 minute training sessions per week in addition to their base training in the gym.  Since these extra workouts can be done at home clients have an easy time fitting them in to work on weaknesses or other points of emphasis with some extra targeted work.   

Quite simply, the more often you fire up the metabolism with exercise- the more fat it will burn assuming that recovery is not compromised.  The relatively short body weight sessions help to prevent over training.   There is more to it than just going through the motions, the routines have to be properly structured to meet individual needs for the best results.  Often times the key to success is fixing the weakest links which can be only done with a properly designed routine.


Sounds Easy?  Try a push up with 150 pounds of Band Resistance!!

I have written many times about the great benefits to be earned when trainees operate at a high intensity level, the harder you work- the faster the results will come!  Do not dismiss the value of these workouts as they seem easy.  Try doing a push up with a band wrapped around your back and held in both hands that equals an extra 150 lbs of tension!  The possibilities are endless since there are many different band tension levels that can be used in a variety of ways.  My advanced clients add band tension to certain weight training movements to increase the difficulty and can take off the bands half way through the set as a way of strip set training.  The same concept can be applied when only working with bands by starting with a higher tension band on a push up, removing half way through and continuing the set with body weight only.  These methods are crucial for keeping training stimuli fresh.

Short- Yet Intense!

Yes you can accomplish a great deal with a 15-20 minute workout, but only if you are highly efficient by packing in a lot of work into a short window of time.  We want to minimize rest between sets without sacrificing the amount of resistance used.  Meaning resting 10 seconds so you can do a set of curls holding merely a pencil as loading is not as beneficial as using a heavier weight even if the rest must be closer to a minute.  Over time your work capacity will increase allowing for a simultaneous increase in load while decreasing rest which will set off a fat burning wild fire.

Improving Productivity and Crushing Cravings

A secondary benefit to intense exercise is the euphoric feelings following training which lead to better work performance and decreased cravings.  Female clients especially see tremendous benefit from frequent workouts helping them to avoid poor food choices.  Men in particular see a bigger impact on increased mental focus leading to better work performance.  What value do you place on getting 10 hours of work done in 8 in your profession?

Super Band Training for Rapid Fat Loss

                                       Sets    Reps    Tempo    Rest

A1. Push Up with Band Tension       
                                            3    6-8    3-1-x-2    45    
A2. Seated Horizontal Band Row       
                                            3    6-8    3-1-x-2    45
B1. 45 deg incline Band Press       
                                            3    6-8    3-1-x-2    45
B2. Unilateral Seated High Point Band Row    
                                            3    6-8    3-1-x-2    45
C1. Standing Band Pull Aparts       
                                            2    8-10   2-1-1-2    45
C2. 45 Degree Band Fly          
                                            2    8-10   3-1-1-2    45

Execution Tips
A1. Wrap The Band Around your back and your hands will be placed at the end of each side within the loop.  The last 2 of the tempo indicates a 2 second hold on top.  This extended finish position is done at the highest pointed of tension since the band is stretched.
A2.  Wrap the band around a sturdy post that CANNOT Move and pull towards you in a horizontal motion while maintaining proper posture.  The farther you move away from the post the harder the exercise will be.  Palms should face each other.  

B1. Use the same band set up as a push up, except lay down on an incline bench and press up explosively.
B2. Tie band in a knot around sturdy post that cannot move. The Knot should be at eye level when standing.  From a seated position pull the band towards your torso with one arm a time.  Your palm should be facing down.

C1. While in standing position hold the band at both ends at eye level.  Pull the band part as far as you can to place the emphasis on your rear shoulder muscles.

C2. Lay on a bench with the band wrapped around your back holding either in end in each hand.  Perform a fly movement keeping a 10 degree bend in your elbows.

Warning!
Contact Scott for recommendations for Band Suppliers- typical resistance cords and other items may not be appropriate for these exercises and can break when under too much tension.

Successful Feedback from people using the Extreme Crash Diet for Rapid Fat loss has been overwhelming positive.  Not only is body fat lost fast, but execution is very simple no matter how busy the schedule becomes while supporting high energy levels.  Email scott@infinityfitness.com for your complementary copy today!

What Our Customers Are Saying
Chicken Apple Sausages

I just wanted to say "thanks" for the great food you sent us. The
beef and chicken and rabbit are all great! The chicken sausages with apples were outstanding too! I have to admit that I lie blatantly to my kids about what they are eating until they agree that they like it. After that I tell them what it is. Maybe.

I have recommended your products to a "naturopathic" doctor friend of mine so she and her family can try your products and recommend them to her patients.

Drugs scare me down to my boots, both prescription drugs and those in our foods, so if we can grow some our own veggies and poultry, which we do, and buy some other meats from you, we are better off and so is the planet. My kids are even learning about drugs in school, and are on my case about drinking coffee. You can't have everything, I guess. Well, thanks again my friends. Be well and keep smiling!

$25 Discount for 40lb. Increments

Do not forget to take advantage of the 40 pound $25 discount by ordering 40 pound combinations of beef, lamb, pork, butter, goat, shrimp, bison, condiments, honey, rabbit, single item chicken selections, snack foods, pet food, and raw cheese.

This is our way of saying thank you for purchasing in volume. This can be any combination of products totaling 40 pounds and does not have to be specific to any category. Each 40 pound interval will yield the discount. For example, 80 pounds of product will yield a $50 discount and a 120 pound purchase will yield a $75 discount.


Minimum Purchase Rules


U.S. Wellness requires a $75 minimum purchase and a 7 pound minimum combined purchase of beef, lamb, pork, nutraceuticals, gourmet rabbit, grass-fed goat, grass-fed bison, raw cheese, single piece poultry, and butter.

The minimum is required since we have built the cost of shipping into the price of the product.  You will only see a $7.50 handling fee at checkout.

The issue is that the 20 pound bulk chicken and turkeys originate from separate cold storage center where those products are produced. It is not efficient to ship one package of beef as a stand alone item when the balance of the order originates 400 miles away.

The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if you are under the 7 pound limit for a combination of beef, lamb, pork, raw cheese, butter, goat, shrimp, soap and single honey bottle purchases. A Red font will appear under the shopping cart if you are under the minimum price or pound requirements.
