Ketogenic Fat Loss Diet Defined
What Health People Have in Common
Clever "smashed" Recipe of the Week

April 12, 2015
 Monticello, Missouri
Dear John,
Fabulous early April greetings.  April has been nearly perfect for livestock.  The photos of the week below are in perfect grazing conditions at our Gulf Coast grazing center.  The steaks from these cattle will bring many smiles from backyard grilling chefs.

This weeks newsletter features two excellent articles on fast fat loss systems.  Kelley Herring defines the Keotgenic diet and explains why it is so effective when Paleo consumers lighten up on carbohydrate items in their paleo diet protocol to be true hunter gatherers.  Scott Mendelson offers a work out routine to speed up the fat loss via a specific training protocol.  You will note a very interesting set of before and after photos which happened in weeks and not months.  Yes, grass-fed beef, lamb and bison are critical pieces of the diet and excercise plan.

The Spring body tune up is not complete without Dr. Sears defining what healthy folks have in common.  This is a must read for more than just the 15% off  red letter promo code within the article.  Our ancestors were very savvy consumers!

The word smashed is not typical in recipe descriptions, but you will get a hoot out of the recipe of the week below.  The center piece of the recipe would not be on many breakfast menus, but Stephanie Gaudreau of Stupid Easy Paleo fame, is an extraordinary surprise artist in the kitchen.  Suggest you explore the recipe and add your own personal twist beside bacon and eggs to match your tastes.

Thank you for your past patronage and future consideration. 

April Regards, 

John, Lee Ann, Tressa, Amanda & Laura on behalf of the farm families of US Wellness Meats.

What All Healthy People Have In Common



By: Dr. Al Sears, MD


Each year, I travel more than 20,000 miles to study what makes people healthy. But most other doctors don't get my research methods.

Mainstream doctors only treat - and most researchers only study - sickness. They don't consider health. They look at a disease and then try to find a pill.

I'm different because I focus on what healthy people have in common. I ask what protects them from disease.

Western medicine has come to see people's ailments like little packages of symptoms to be drugged or cut out. It has lost sight of the whole person behind the rash or the tumor, and the emotional and environmental factors that have contributed or even caused the physical problems in the first place.

Even in medical school, I was different. I was inspired by a pioneering dentist and nutritionist named Weston A. Price - and I still am!




Editors Note:  Dr. Al Sears, M.D. is a board-certified clinical nutrition specialist. His practice, Dr. Sears' Health & Wellness Center in Royal Palm Beach, Fla., specializes in alternative medicine. He is the author of seven books in the fields of alternative medicine, anti-aging, and nutritional supplementation, including The Doctor's Heart Cure. To get his free special report on the proven anti-aging strategies for building a vibrant, disease-free life, go here now. You'll learn how to stop Father Time without giving up the foods you love.

The Paleo Ketogenic Diet:  The Most Effective Way to Lose Weight

By: Kelley Herring, Healing Gourmet 



Are you following a "paleo" diet... and yet still find that you haven't lost all the weight you'd like to? If so, you're not alone.

While following an ancestral diet is a powerful way to provide your body with more disease-fighting nutrients and eliminate many of the inflammatory compounds in common foods, many people find the Paleo diet alone can't provide the metabolic shift required to melt excess fat.

The reason? Many Paleo diets include high carbohydrate foods like sweet potatoes, rutabagas, tapioca, arrowroot, fruits and many more. And while these foods are fine in moderation, especially for those who are active, they can keep blood sugar and insulin levels high... and fat cells pleasantly plump.
Enter the Paleo Ketogenic Diet.

By maintaining the beneficial framework of the Paleo diet, while strictly limiting dietary carbohydrates, your body can enter a state of nutritional ketosis, where fat burning dramatically accelerates.

So how does it work?

Eating eggs reduces risk of type 2 diabetes, study indicates

Egg consumption may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, according to new research from the University of Eastern Finland. The findings were published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Type 2 diabetes is becoming increasingly widespread throughout the world. Research has shown that lifestyle habits, such as exercise and nutrition, play a crucial role in the development of the disease. In some studies, high-cholesterol diets have been associated with disturbances in glucose metabolism and risk of type 2 diabetes. In contrast, in some experimental studies, the consumption of eggs has led to improved glucose balance, among other things. However, there is no experimental data available on the effects of egg consumption on the incidence of type 2 diabetes. In population-based studies, too, the association between egg consumption and type 2 diabetes has been investigated only scarcely, and the findings have been inconclusive. Egg consumption has either been associated with an elevated risk, or no association has been found.


The dietary habits of 2,332 men aged between 42 and 60 years were assessed at the baseline of the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study, KIHD, at the University of Eastern Finland in 1984-1989. During a follow-up of 19.3 years, 432 men were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.


The study found that egg consumption was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes as well as with lower blood glucose levels. Men who ate approximately four eggs per week had a 37 per cent lower risk of type 2 diabetes than men who only ate approximately one egg per week. This association persisted even after possible confounding factors such as physical activity, body mass index, smoking and consumption of fruits and vegetables were taken into consideration. The consumption of more than four eggs did not bring any significant additional benefits.

Training Strategies to Double The Rate of Fat Loss in Time for Spring!     


By: Scott Mendelson



I have noticed that many of your programs include super sets, tri sets or even giant sets which include pretty short rest periods.  Can you explain the benefits? I have lost 15 pounds of body fat since January 1 and I credit the interval sprint routines you have discussed in your articles.  What can I do to take intervals to the next level to burn off another 10 pounds of fat during the next 30 days before spring hits?  Jimmy

Jimmy, there is method to all of my madness to accelerate body transformation progress with maximum efficiency.  The Rapid Fat Loss training routine below features super sets in their purest format to accelerate neurological recovery between sets which govern strength levels.  The higher the training quality measured by strength improvements and other performance factors- the higher the levels of fat burning hormones will surge.  We are going to elaborate within our new Weight Training for rapid fat loss blog post.

Over the last 15 years my clients have consistently remarked during the early phases of customized training programs that they felt like they did 90 minutes of work in 45 minutes or less due to the rapid pace of training.  Better yet their strength levels improved over time without injuries or fatigue during training.  We are able to earn these benefits by properly training the muscles as well as the nervous system.

The Best Chicken Backs for Stock!

When I made the batch of broth with these chicken backs and picked the bones out of the broth meats, I was a little astonished by how healthy the birds these backs came from were. Thanks also for including the neck and all the little glands and organs attached to the under side of the backs, I'm sure I'll get lots of extra vitamins and minerals from those!

But the really amazing thing was how healthy the bones were. I've had one other chicken like these from a local farmer.  His eggs are really nice, and when I bought one of his rarely offered whole birds, I saw why the eggs are so nice. His and yours have bones that are well developed, with intricate flutes on the ends and bends and turns and grooves in them that you don't see on less healthy chickens. And all of them are hard, even the small bones.  One of the things I used to hate about less healthy chickens (before I knew how sickly they were) was picking the bones out of the broth meats and how all those little bones in the back would break and crumble, and sometimes it was hard to tell whether a bit was a piece of bone or a piece of toughish meat. No questions with these chickies - their bones were rock hard, right down to the teeniest ones, and none of them broke or crumbled.  

Well, now if I get another chicken with straight, smooth, skinny little bones, I'll know for sure it didn't have a happy and healthy life.  And I know where to get ones that did!

Paleo Smashed & Loaded Sweet Potato


  • 1 roasted sweet potato, peeled
  • Ghee, coconut oil or fat of choice
  • 2 eggs
  • Topping: shredded beef, shredded pork, avocado, bacon, jalapeno rings, etc...more creativity the better
  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high (I like cast iron for this job). Add ghee or your fat of choice. 
  2. Put the pre-cooked sweet potato in the skillet. Press flat with a fork or spatula. Fry on each side for 2-4 minutes or until the sweet potato caramelizes (but doesn't burn). Remove to a plate.
  3. In the same pan, add more ghee. Fry two eggs (or more if you're hungrier) in whatever style you'd like. I made mine over-easy so the yolk would run all over my potato. Tasty.
  4. Stack your smashed and loaded sweet potato: add the eggs on top of the sweet potato then layer with your toppings of choice.
  5. Rejoice in how tasty your breakfast is. Consume.
