Cholesterol: I Told You So!
Stop worrying about cholesterol in your diet! 

By: Dr. Al Sears, MD


Big Brother has finally come around to what I've been telling my patients for almost 30 years - stop worrying about cholesterol in your diet!

The influential Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, the nation's top nutrition panel, has now admitted they were WRONG about cholesterol. And they have now proclaimed this former dietary evil as no longer a "nutrient of concern."

They were slow - and, of course, wrong for decades - but at least they got there in the end.




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.

Save Time & Eat Healthy Too
3 Meal Planning Tips for the Busy Family

By: Kelley Herring, Healing Gourmet 



As an aware and health-conscious person, you're already doing a lot to protect your health by enjoying more nutrient-dense foods and avoiding the added sugar, fake fats and harmful chemicals found in most processed foods. You and your family might even follow specific dietary regimen that works best for you.

Unfortunately, despite our best intentions, it can still be a big challenge to consistently follow a weekly meal plan - and that goes for even the most organized home cook. With jobs, kids, travel and life's other demands, it is all too easy to deviate from a weekly meal plan, or fail to make one in the first place.

The result?  We succumb to the temptation of unhealthy convenience foods. Or we rely on the same boring go-to meals, week after week.  But it doesn't have to be this way.

Increase Fat Burning Hormones with Speed Repetition Strategies 


By:  Scott Mendelson



I just turned 50 and I went to the beach last week and let's just I say I need to make some physique improvements before a Labor Day Vacation.  The nutrition plan must be simple for me to follow daily.  What is the best training routine for a 50 year old to lose 10 pounds of body fat over the next month if I have around 30 minutes a few times per week to train?  Can you explain the speed of rep techniques you have mentioned in prior columns?

Shashlik (Шашлык) is a type of shish kebab commonly found in
Lets Eat !!
Russia and the former Soviet republics. It was likely brought to Moscow from Central Asia in the 19th century. Today, it's a popular summer food cooked over an open fire at social gatherings. It's traditionally prepared with lamb, but chicken, pork, and beef variations are becoming increasingly prominent. With summer in full swing throughout the country right now, I thought it would be a great time to share this tasty dish!

Ingredients for the Roast:  
  • lamb shoulder (2 lbs) cut in 2" cubes
  • 2 medium onions, blended
  • 6 cloves garlic, blended
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (2 tsp)
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. In a blender or food processor, blend the onion, garlic, and water. Combine with the bay leaves, apple cider vinegar, pepper, oregano, and lemon juice.
  2. Pour mixture into a ziploc bag. Add the lamb cubes and marinate in the fridge for four hours.
  3. After four hours, skewer the lamb pieces (if using wooden skewers, soak them for 30 minutes first) and warm up your grill on med/high heat.  
  4. Grill on direct heat, rotating the skewers with a pair of tongs every few minutes, and sprinkle the salt over the skewers as they cook.

  5. When you have a hard time looking at the skewers because they are so delicious, remove them from the grill. Should take about 10 minutes altogether.

  6. Let the shashlik rest for five minutes and serve. This dish is commonly served outdoors in Russia, with fresh, lightly-salted vegetables like tomato, mushrooms, or cucumbers as its only accompaniment. Enjoy!
