Hunger or withdrawal?

    For me one of the points that has become clear is the ideal between hunger and withdrawals. We often say we are hungry, but are we really. I recently watched a man going through a park digging through ever trash can eating whatever he could find. I think he was probably hungry. But he might not have been, since most of what he was digging out of the trash was processed or fast food.
   So what is a good indication that you are truly hungry and not just addicted to the food you are craving? For now we won't even bring in some of the other aspects of eating like; comfort, entertaining, or boredom. When you are hungry, that should be the only sensation you feel. You shouldn't be angry or irritable. You shouldn't have a headache. You should just feel hungry.

Don't use statins.

This is one of the articles we discussed on "Low Carb Conversations". Another study shows that statins are not necessary for most people and actually do more harm than good. Statin Report

Carbohydrates and Cholesterol

      Today while listening to episode # 714 of the Living La Vida Low Carb podcast with Jimmy Moore and his guest Cassie Bjork, I had a thought about carbohydrates and cholesterol. Our bodies make both of these products. So why are we told to eat carbohydrates and to avoid cholesterol? They (the media, powers that be, etc…) tell us that we can make all the cholesterol we need ourselves that we don’t need much from our diet. But, they tell us that carbohydrates are an important fuel and our diet needs to be full of them so we have enough energy. Some how they don’t know that we can make all the carbohydrates we need too, providing that we aren’t engaging in glycogen depleting exercise. 
     If you want to find out the truth about cholesterol, read Jimmy Moore's new book:

Fitness Confidential

I got to do some reading over the Labor Day weekend.

      I really enjoyed "Fitness Confidential". I read a lot of health and fitness books. Vinnie Tortorich's book was different in a very refreshing way. I'm glad that Vinnie Tortorich and Dean Lorey stuck to there guns and self published the book in they way they conceived it. I think this book is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to lose weight and get fit. His message is simple, "No Sugars, No Grains". But we know its not an easy thing for most people to do. The message is also relevant for athletes, especially endurance athletes. We have been told for the last 30 years to eat more healthy grains and the high fructose corn syrup were what we should be eating to be fit and healthy. We have got fat and sick with this diet. Vinnie tells you the truth about diet and exercise.
    Vinnie's story is the best part of the book. It is a moving story of his commitment to his health and to his client's health. His story of his completion of the Furnace 508 race after his battle with cancer is a tear jerking inspiration.
