Having Muscle Means YOU Call the Shots
By: Al Sears, MD
Dear Health-Conscious Reader,
I get a lot of health magazines
sent to my clinic. This month, I got a new one called Aging Well. As I was flipping the
pages I came across an article called "Nutrition's Role in Sarcopenia Prevention."
Sarcopenia is age-related loss of muscle mass. I've helped thousands of patients prevent this, and
gain muscle mass with age to stay independent and active. It's a focus of anti-aging medicine, so I
wanted to read what the article had to say.
It talked about who's at risk, signs to look
for, and that you should focus on nutrition to prevent muscle loss.
Then I came to their
nutrition recommendations. They tell you to get more protein, and give you a list of what to eat.
But as I looked down the list I noticed something I couldn't believe. They don't recommend eating
any meat for protein.
Peanut butter, protein bars, powdered milk, wheat germ, cheese,
nuts, seeds, beans, yogurt, peanut butter... Not once do they mention meat.
It's a shame
because eating protein is essential to preventing sarcopenia. And the foods they mention are not
complete proteins. They don't have all the essential nutrients your body needs every day.
But it's not just food. There are two other ways to prevent and reverse sarcopenia, which I'll
show you in a minute. It's vital that you know them. Every year you lose more and more muscle, and
it never lets up. Very often it's hard to notice. As you age, muscle can be replaced by fat. And
unless you're watching out for it, you won't see it happening.
But you'll feel it...
Losing your muscle mass opens a Pandora's box of new problems:
- Diminished sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Weight gain
- Clouded thinking
Like a progressive disease, your
body simply "wastes away" over the years. In fact, skeletal muscle mass drops between 35% to 40% by
the time you reach 80.(1) That's about three pounds every

Eating This Kind of Seafood Can Increase Belly Fat
By: Kelley Herring
Eating seafood can provide a bevy
of health benefits. It can reduce the risk of heart disease, boost your brainpower and even keep
your skin looking radiant, supple and youthful.
But new research published in the journal
Obesity found that a "hidden" ingredient in seafood can actually increase belly fat. And it
is this "visceral" fat that is the most dangerous to your health.
and Muffin Tops... from Pollutants?
In the PIVUS study, researchers measured the
levels of 23 persistent environmental toxins in more than 1,000 participants. They also evaluated
the amount of belly fat in nearly 300 of the participants using magnetic imaging.
researchers found that high levels of persistent organic pollutants often found in seafood -
including PCBs - were associated with a high proportion of abdominal fat.
So how do these
pollutants add inches to your waistline?
They disrupt your hormonal system. This impacts
the way fat is metabolized. It also increases cortisol and estrogen levels.
Man-Made "Seafood": Concentrating the Chemicals
You may wonder how
seafood gets contaminated with PCBs in the first place.
The answer is concentrated fish
On average, it takes five pounds of fish meal to produce just one pound of farmed
fish. And this makes farmed fish a highly concentrated source of PCBs.
In fact, the
journal Science reports that farmed salmon contain ten times more toxins (PCBs, dioxin,
etc.) than wild salmon. What's more, seven out of ten pieces of farmed fish tested had
concentrations of PCBs that were high enough to trigger health warnings from the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA).
And while belly fat is certainly unsightly, PCB exposure is a
lot more serious than just your appearance. Exposure to PCBs has also been linked to diabetes,
heart disease, infertility, thyroid dysfunction, neurological damage, and cancer... as well as
memory and learning problems...

Milk Ingredient Does a Waistline
A natural ingredient found in milk can protect against
obesity even as mice continue to enjoy diets that are high in fat. The researchers who report their
findings in the June Cell Metabolism, a Cell Press publication, liken this milk ingredient
to a new kind of vitamin.
present in what we've all been eating since day one," says Johan Auwerx of École Polytechnique
Fédérale de Lausanne.
identified this ingredient, known as nicotinamide riboside, as they were searching for alternative
ways to boost the well-known gene SIRT1, which comes with benefits for both metabolism and
longevity. One way to do that is to target SIRT1 directly, as the red wine ingredient resveratrol
appears to do, at least at some doses.
Auwerx's team suspected there might be a simpler way to go about it, by boosting levels of
one of SIRT1's molecular sidekicks, the cofactor NAD+.
This milk ingredient does just that in a rather appealing way. Not only is
it a natural product, but it also gets trapped within cells, where it can do its magic.
Mice that take nicotinamide riboside in fairly
high doses along with their high-fat meals burn more fat and are protected from obesity. They also
become better runners thanks to muscles that have greater endurance.
The benefits they observe in mice wouldn't be easy to get from
drinking milk alone, Auwerx says. It may be more likely that the compound would serve as a new kind
of metabolism-boosting supplement. Tests done in people are now needed to help sort out those
On the other hand, he says,
this milk substance ultimately offers the same benefits attributed to resveratrol, but in a
different way. It's possible that many small effects of ingredients found in our diets could add up
to slimmer waistlines -- perhaps longer lives, too.

Burn off Up to 20 Lbs of Fat IN 60 days- Forever
Advanced, Yet Simple Rapid Fat Loss Exercise Strategies
Summer is here and I am short of my goals to say the least. What makes
this really hard to swallow is that I have been very disciplined with diet and training this winter
and spring. After losing a lot of body fat during the first few months just by cleaning up the
diet and exercising, things have slowed down. I have found it very difficult to break through
to the low level body fat I need to show off my abs. I need to lose 20 pounds of fat without
giving up any muscle and I will look great!
imagine you are very frustrated since your hard work did not lead you all the way to your
goals. The key to success is working both hard and smart. It sounds like you have good
habits in place, so now you just need to change your tactics to make the body burn more fat as
fuel. The metabolism can fight against you at times if you have been eating too little and
exercising too much.
KISS Rapid Fat Loss Plan
the benefit of reviewing your nutrition and training plan which was not listed in this response due
to a lack of space. There are many problems that I can spot and much of this has led to
metabolic staleness. Just like training, the nutrition plan must change strategically every 6
to 12 weeks to ensure rapid fat loss progress. The Kiss Rapid Fat Loss Plan (keep it simple
stupid) is very easy to execute and exactly what is needed right now to drive accelerated fat
burning through multiple pathways. I have seen numerous clients drop 20 pounds of fat in
60 days and keep it off long term. The KISS plan makes use of macronutrient cycling
which breaks metabolic staleness, increases fat burning enzymes and optimizes fat burning
hormones. Kiss is an easy plan to execute consistently which is crucial for building metabolic
and hormonal momentum.
Bust through Your Road Blocks to Success
problems are too much steady state cardio, not enough food intake and a poorly designed weight
training routine. I am known to ruffle some feathers now and again by telling people
the truth about the quality of their training routine and this largely due to my core belief that a
correctly designed weight training routine is an extremely powerful tool. Weight training
cannot be done by "feel" or designed at random while earning the best possible success. We are

Memphis-Style Barbecue Beef Back
- Remove the two
racks from their packaging, and gently rinse with water and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the
yellow mustard over the tops of the ribs (1/2 tbsp per rack).
- One thing that surprised me is that we
didn't season the underside of the ribs at all. In the end, it made sense, both from a culinary
standpoint and economically: the well-seasoned tops of the ribs had the overwhelming majority of the
meat, and the unseasoned underside's mild taste was an awesome complement to the tasty
- Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the barbecue rub on each rack. Set the ribs aside while we prepare the
- For the uninitiated (which includes myself), here's what a smoker looks like on the inside.
The bottom section holds the fire, which allows you to regulate the temperature in the top section.
If you're using a grill, this is essentially the same setup as my indirect method of smoking meat,
which you can find in recipes like my lemon and dill smoked chicken.
- Add a few handfuls of
hardwood charcoal to the bottom element, along with a chunk of hickory and a chunk of applewood. If
you're using a grill, the same effect can be produced using wood chips on the heated side of the
grill. Light a fire using lighter cubes and allow it to burn for five minutes before closing the
- Close everything up and allow the top section to reach and stabilize at 300 degrees. This part
could take up to 30 minutes.
- Place the ribs in the smoker/grill on roasting pans or on
heavy-duty tin foil, and smoke for two hours.
- After two hours, lay out two large sheets of
heavy-duty tin foil and pour 1/4 cup of honey on each sheet in a zig-zag pattern like you see
- Place the ribs on top of the honey, top-side down. Curl up the sides of the tin foil, add 1/3
cup of red wine to each rack, and then seal up the ribs in the tin foil.
- Place the covered ribs
back into the smoker, and smoke for another hour. After one hour, check for tenderness with a
toothpick - the meat should be very tender and give way easily. If it's still tough, put it back in
the smoker and check it every 20-30 minutes.
- Take the ribs out of the tin foil and return to
the smoker/grill for another 30 minutes to finish them off.
- Allow the ribs to rest for at least five
minutes before cutting them up. Try not to get any drool on them while you wait.
- Using a knife or kitchen
shears, separate each rib for maximum presentation and convenience.
- Spoon on some barbecue
sauce right before serving, or serve it on the side. That's it!
