You And Your Cholesterol

Are you aware that nearly 107 million Americans have total cholesterol of 200 mg/dL or higher, a level at which cardiovascular risk begins to rise.

Mike Flowers  of you-and-your-cholesterol.com states that “High Cholesterol and Triglyceride (blood fat) can easily be controlled by following a few simple rules and without giving up some of the pleasures you enjoy most!”

Mr. Flowers also added that ten years ago his doctor wanted to place him on medication due to his high cholesterol levels.

“I was totally shocked because I felt fine, and was going to see him for something unrelated.

At that point, I started thinking about my dad and the Quadruple Bypass he had a couple years earlier.

I convinced my doctor to give me 30 days to reduce my Cholesterol, and get it under control.  If not, I would be more than happy to start taking the medication.

When I returned to his office 30 days later, he was completely amazed at how low my levels were and told me to continue doing what I was doing.

To be honest with you, I was more amazed than he was.  I was thrilled…not expecting such good results.

It has been ten years since that visit, and each time I visit his office for a check up my levels are consistently good!

A lot of people can lower their levels by incorporating the right diet plan, knowing what foods to stay away from, educating themselves on the benefits of natural herbs and having a simple exercise regiment.

Unfortunately for some, no matter what they do – they will not be able to get their levels under control and will have to seek the advice of their medical professional

Health – supplements — Are They Worth It?

Few areas of health generate more controversy than nutritional supplements.
More than half of all Americans take them-and at least 25 percent take them
daily. That means millions of people are spending billions of dollars in the
belief that supplements will improve their health. Are they getting their money’s
worth?

DON’T ASSUME THAT BECAUSE A PRODUCT IS “ALL NATURAL” IT’S SAFE.

It depends on whom you ask.

You don’t even have to ask the manufacturers and salespeople-they’ll take every
opportunity to tell you that supplements are excellent, even essential. Their
claimsare impressive, and when they appear in print or on a TV or computer screen,
theytake on the voice of authority. Unfortunately, it’s a voice that’s affected by
financialinterest. And since Congress removed supplements from the FDA’s jurisdiction in
1994, salespeople have been able to hype their products without the need to
substantiate their claims.

If you ask a person who takes supplements, you may get an enthusiastic
endorsement. But even though your friends and relatives aren’t motivated by
profit,they’re not a reliable source of information. That’s because testimonials and
anecdotes, however sincere and well intentioned, don’t convey scientific facts.

If you can’t rely on package labels and friends, your next resource is obvious:
your doctor. Keep in mind, however, that the scientific information on most
supplements is scant at best. In addition, physicians have traditionally believed that a
good diet will provide all the vitamins and minerals you need to prevent any deficiency.
That is a valid opinion, but it overlooks emerging information that suggests some
supplements may have benefits above and beyond preventing deficiencies.

SUPPLEMENTS MAY HAVE BENEFITS ABOVE AND BEYOND PREVENTING DEFICIENCIES.

PERSPECTIVES AND PRECAUTIONS
Don’t take supplements to feel or function better; vitamins, minerals and herbs
do not increase energy, improve sexual performance, reduce stress, prevent
infections, promote sleep, or sharpen the mind. If you take supplements, use
them carefully, choosing among those that have a real chance of reducing your
long-term risk of heart disease or other ailments.

Don’t take mega doses. Vitamins and minerals are essential for health in small
doses, but they can be toxic in high doses. Don’t assume that because a product
is “all-natural” it’s safe. Remember that supplements are not subject to the
standards of safety, efficacy, purity and quality that apply to medication.

Don’t waste your money on expensive brands or designer supplements. Natural
vitamins are no better than synthetic vitamins; choose the least costly
preparation from a reputable supplier. Select products that are fully
labeled-with content, dosage and expiration date. Supplements that conform to
the standards of the United States Pharmacopeia are desirable.

Remember that food is the best source of vitamins, minerals and other
nutrients. In particular, vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain products supply
dietary fiber and many other important vitamins and nutrients. Excessive
cooking and processing can remove vitamins from fresh and whole foods.

Above all, never take supplements as substitutes for good nutrition and sound
health habits. Nature is smarter than the finest chemist; vitamins, minerals,
herbs and extracts may not retain the beneficial properties of real food.

This is a yes and no question. Science has definately shown that supplements
are helping and fewer people are now having doctor visits. In addition, we are
living longer. Unfortunately, this doesn’t address the new strains of virus
and bacteria that our out there.

The negative side to supplements is that taking the wrong supplement will
depress or short out the thyroid and adrenals. Doing this will yield acid and
toxicity which
are the perfect environments for all disease and illness. Moreover, I have
read where taking the wrong supplement for extended periods of time will
actually rot out organs.

I personally will not take anything unless my clinical kinesiologist tests it
on me. These doctors can muscle test products against your body for weakness
or strength. I have found over the past six years that almost every store
bought product tests out bad on me. I searched feverishly for a natural green
food product and even those tested out bad. My conclusion is that you should
only take supplements for a specific amount of time to correct a specific
problem.. When I have a thyroid problem, my holistic doctor gives me something
for a few weeks and them I am off of it. I get everything that I need from raw
and live foods, essential oils, and distilled water.

How can a man get big without supplements or steroids?

I’ve been training for 4 years and I still have the master of the doubts… Can I get big (I mean in a regular basis) without taking any supplements /steroids?

You’ll probably ask me why I didn’t discover this before, but I’ve been training these 4 years and my gains stopped completely after the 2nd year.

I feel that my body can grow without steroids, but most of the time I can’t make it happen. I tried many approachs to training and I use a workout that I believe to be the less worst…but I still stucked.

Please, I need the only advice that works…MFW help me

Yes defenitely.
But you have big and BIG.
If he wants to get BIG, training and eating just won’t do it, unless you’re a genetic superfreak. Most people aren’t so he might end up dissapointed
if he decides NOT to use AAS.
If he wants to get BIG that is….

What exactly do you call bodybuilder diet? A 8000 cal. + 4 liters of water a day + 600 g of protein? I have a 5’11” frame, 187 lb. of weight at nearly 13% body fat and a ectomorph type. I have a diet of 2500 cal. and 35% of protein, 15% of fat and rest of carbos (proportions in calories, not in quantity). Lot of meat, non-fat milk, rice, bananas, bread, yam, etc. and a Centrum and a 1000mg vit. C every day.

Can I make better than this?

I think you got the Point.

I don’t your concepts of big and BIG. All I know is that when I started BB 4 years ago I had 11.6″ arms and nearly 160 lbs. Today I have 16″ arms and 187 lbs. during this time I never used steroids and used some supplements by less than two years…I’d like to stop nearly 18″ arms and 205 lbs. My type is ectomorph (I think…is ectomorph a guy with pencil neck and match wrists?? Í used to be like this)

Can I get at this level?

Mondays & Thursdays
(Chest) Dumbell (or Barbell) Incline Press – W.U. (Warm-Up) + 2 x 10
(Back) Cable Seated Row – W.U. + 2 x 10
(Delts) Dumbell Lateral Raise – 2 x 10
After this I’ll rest 15 minutes to do arms workout:
(Bis) Barbell Curl – 2 x 10
Alternate dumbell Curl – 2 x 10
(Tris) Close Grip Bench Press – 2 x 10
Lying triceps extension -1 x 10

Tuesdays & Fridays
(Calves) Standing calf raise – 1 x 20 + 2 x 15 + 1 x 20 (this last is triple drop)
(Quads) Incline Leg Press – W.U. + 3 x 12-15
(Abs) Crunches – 110
Hanging Knee Raise – 60

Obs.: I train with a high intensity and rest 3 minutes between sets.

Diet:

Average of 2500 cal.
Roughly 35% of protein, 15% fat, rest of carbos.
A lot of (non-fat) milk, bread, ham, cheese, boiled red meat, yam, bananas, rice, spaghetti, etc.
1 Centrum and 1 vit. C 1000mg pill every day.

I have 22 old, 5’11” tall and weight is 187 lbs. I think bodyfat is around 13%. My type is ectomorph.

About supplements: Here in Brazil they are extremely EXPENSIVE and I don’t think they will worth the amount paid.

About steroids: I’m looking for a safe and permanent way of get big. Steroids are the fastest way to get big, but I cannot take steroids my whole life, so I won’t be big for much time when I take off them…
