After brushing and flossing, I take my fiber pills and ginkgo biloba, and then insert the bulky, drool producing-mouth guard that keeps me from grinding my teeth.
Francis jerks out of a half slumber, and like something out of “The Alien”, turns his head toward me with four feet of flexible tubing extending from the rubber nose piece strapped to his face.
A few minutes later, in the white noise silence of our marital bedroom, ironically, the dog begins to snore. Let’s face it, any couple who can get in the mood in the midst of all that middle aged reality has more passion in their marriage than any little blue pill could ever provide. I was halfway down the isle before I realized that my family was still in the pew, whispering to each other. Francis and the kids darted into the house, presumably to get ready for those fabulous Mother’s Day plans, and I sat in our sunny back yard to get out of their way.
Suddenly, Francis, who didn’t see me in the backyard, rushed out to the minivan, the tires squealing as he drove away.
In his hands were a 7-11 plastic bag that appeared to be holding a greeting card, and a cellophane cone wrapped around a sad-looking bouquet. If that weren’t bad enough, Francis had bought me something he knows I don’t like: cut flowers. Thanks to the year-long guilt trip I put them on, I’m fairly confident that my family will have a fabulous day planned for me this year. Last week, we put the house we’ve owned since 1998 on the market, and our emotions have been mixed. After returning from a military tour of duty in England with a toddler and a newborn, we bought our first home in Virginia Beach, intending to stay a while.
During the years we lived on our suburban cul-de-sac, the kids knew the shortcut to the local park. In that happy little Dutch Colonial, I dabbled in home improvements, installing a new faucet, ceiling fans, lights, and built-in shelving in the playroom. Oblivious to the fact that the military would eventually force us to move from our sweet little family home, we meticulously scratched the height of each member of our growing brood, to include Dinghy the dog, into the pantry door.
I, on the other hand, feel the bittersweet pangs of melancholy as I prepare myself to sign away the deed to a decade of some of the most important years of our family’s life. But in today’s modern culture, the need to escape from confining norms, no matter how practical or reasonable, has reached new extremes. Ever since the 1920s flappers shocked their Victorian mothers by showing their ankles, exposure has been trendy. Modesty, which used to be a widely-recognized virtue, is now seen as prudish, frumpy, and frankly, uncool. Pop culture reflects this shift in our culture, with nudity-themed television shows such as “Naked Dating,” “Naked and Afraid,” “Naked Castaways,” “Buying Naked,” and “Skin Wars” popping up in TV broadcast schedules. Unlike Lilly, I’ve always been unusually modest, even during my swim team days back in high school and college, when I had to shower with twenty other females on a daily basis. In all my old-fashioned modesty, I have ironically become the ultimate non-conformist in today’s bare-it-all society.
So I lumbered on, until I got to the back of the plane and had to take the last space left, which was between a heavyset man against the window, and a little old lady on the isle.
The man beside me was politely trying to be small, with his arms clasped unnaturally on top of his tensed round belly, and his thick knees hitched in tight. Southwest Airlines’ employees are known for their jokes, and I could hear people in the rows ahead laughing at something the flight attendant said during her “just in case we plummet to our death” spiel. My stomach took a few nauseating dips during the bumpy take off which is to be expected, but the turbulence continued. The turbulence was so bad, the pilot ordered the flight attendants to stay in their seats, and as a result, there would be no beverage service and no bathroom breaks. The constant stream of contentious debates, social media brawls, nasty attack ads and shrieking rallies has garnered endless media coverage. Our next Commander in Chief will be faced with a multitude of complex domestic and international issues, not the least of which is the continuing threat of terrorism.
And in case you hadn’t heard, there is a gaping hole in our US Supreme Court since Justice Antonin Scalia passed away. This is why I was so shocked to find out that some fellow military voters are considering not voting at all, or casting their vote for another party in protest. This election cycle is so extreme, Bernie Sanders devotees are vowing to vote for Trump if Hillary is the nominee.
But despite the mayhem, voting is a serious right that should be especially important to military members who are required to follow the orders of their Commander-in-Chief. However, military voter participation rates are appallingly low.
Voting in the military can be more difficult, especially for the roughly two-thirds who must use absentee ballots because they are not stationed in their home of record.
The chaos of this election cycle is not an excuse – it’s exactly why military servicepersons and their spouses should take part in selecting the next Commander-in-Chief. Relieved, I plopped another puddle of ketchup alongside my fries, and let my mind wander back to Lilly’s first confession to Father Jim when we were stationed in Virginia eight years ago.
My Navy husband, Francis, was deployed for a year, and I was doing my best to hold it all together. As the third child, Lilly often got the short end of the stick, but she never once stopped to ask, “What about me?” With a smile full of awkward teeth, a fistful of her favorite Polly Pockets, and a carefree attitude, Lilly was easy to love. In an attempt to set things right, I asked Principal Stubblefield to rough Lilly up a little bit. At the coffee shop, Francis finished the last of his tuna melt and asked Lilly what she was given as a penance. Despite our own parenting missteps, Lilly has turned out to be a pretty honest kid, and we realize that these moments of contrition have helped all of us to be better people. The ballroom was filled with over 220 sharp-dressed ROTC cadets and midshipmen from six colleges in the New York Capital Region – Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Siena College, Union College, State University of New York at Albany, the College of Saint Rose, and Hudson Valley Community College. Back in the 80s when he was fresh out of Aviation Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, destined for Intelligence School and his first tour of duty in an EA-6B squadron in Whidby Island, Washington, Francis never envisioned being a guest of honor at anything, much less making a career out of Navy service. We’ve attended many military ceremonies over the years – promotions, retirements, commissionings, and balls.
I’ll admit it, I’ve been guilty of taking it all for granted, focusing more on who wore what dress or who won the centerpiece or who botched the Electric Slide (it was usually Francis, by the way).
We raised glasses high, in a litany of customary toasts to the flag, the President, the Joint Chiefs, the Cadets, and the Midshipmen.
Adjusting his cumber bun, Francis spoke to the roomful of bright young men and women about viewing themselves as part of a Joint Military profession that is both ethical and competent. The MC took the podium one last time to announce the final time-honored military traditions: “We ask that you do not take the center pieces. I recently visited a family member and took a cooler filled with fish and turkey as well as veggies. Think of carbs (carbohydrates) as pasta, bread, cereal, pastries, candy, sugar, potatoes (root veggies) & fruits.
I will notice how my body starts dumping water (frequent urination) when I cut back on carbs. Is this food I am about to eat supporting my nutrition goal for the day and for the week overall? I will try amino acids in pill or powder form before workouts as I don’t know what to eat before working out!
I will learn to shop for foods with nutrient value in mind. I need protein, green leafy veggies, good fats (avocados, nuts, healthy oils), fiber. If I hate to drink water then I will consume some easy veggies that don’t need to be cooked such as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and sweet peppers. I may be willing to try counting carbs every day using the method of adding 20 grams of carbs each day leading up to cheat day (usually consume 3 times the amount of carbs that you have been consuming).
If I deplete my body of the several thousand calories of carbs stored in my body then my body will burn fat for fuel. If I eat a lot one day or two days in a row then the next day I will be in the mindset of consuming minimal high quality calories and think of it as detox. By cutting back on carbs and then having a re-feed, binge, re-fuel, cheat day you are telling your body that you are not in starvation mode and not to store fat.

Just wondering about the amount of protein… in an earlier article it was stated that the body could only absorb a maximum of 5g of protein in an hour.
About creatine, one of the articles you wrote suggested trying out 4 servings (20g total) of creatine per day for 3 days on 4 days off right?
Another reason is that it might reduce the coritisol in my system, which is the enemy of testosterone. I just ordered an ice cream maker and I’m going to make non-fat frozen yogurt using Splenda!!

Also, if you need to lose fat, do consider my TSPA program as it’s the best way to go about it, but in short, 50g net carbs is a good start, but there are other issues to consider. MuscleHack is simply one of the BEST sites on the net for free tips on how to gain muscle fast and lose fat.
In this report, Canadian and American researchers performed a comprehensive analysis of 48 randomized trials that encompassed over 7,000 individuals. In this study, a diet deriving less than 40% of total calories from carbohydrate was considered low carbohydrate, high-fat.
However, most health experts recommend a balanced diet that provides approximately 15% to 20% of calories from protein, 20% to 35% of calories from fat, and the rest from complex carbohydrates.
In other words while the journal is presenting an extensive study demonstrating the effectiveness of a higher-fat, low-carb diet, the actual recommendation made to doctors, and what doctors are told they should communicate to their patients, is exactly the opposite.
It is certainly going to continue to take time for mainstream medicine to embrace the notion that dietary fat plays a critical role in human health end will actually enhance weight-loss. As I understand it, the average medical student gets less than 20 classroom hours on the role of nutrition in health. So we have an army of the blind, getting counsel from parties who like things just the way they are. Those of us in the celiac world have members who actually give a detailed presentation of disease to medical students. The sad thing about this low fat fad is that so many young people are Vitamin D defficient. Dr P I read the meta-analysis and I’m afraid I cannot find any evidence that the study supports a low carbohydrate diet. Low-carbohydrate and low-fat dietary programs were associated with more weight loss than no dietary intervention over a 12-month period; behavioral support and exercise enhanced weight loss. Interesting that the weight loss accelerates during the first six months for the low-carb group but then achieves parity with the low-fat group at the 12 month point.
All things being equal, though, it would seem the low-carb is much more beneficial for diabetic patients and others who need to restrict their carb intake.
The problem with putting forward such publications is that not everyone can read them critically. For example one big problem is that with most of the studies that compare low carb to low fat, the group that is low fat group is calorie restricted, whereas the group that is low carb is allowed to eat as much as they want. I’ve been in private practice for 4 years and I educate my patients that healthy fats are not evil and do not put weight on but help take it off.

After 6 months on the high fat, low carb, moderate protein, gluten free diet, I just got great news at my very surprised Doctor’s appointment. The conflict arises because in a higher fat diet there is evidence showing that there is significantly more atherosclerosis, even if patients are loosing weight due to lower carbs. I believe there is a false notion that a low-carb, high fat diet means gulping down lard (e.g. David Perlmutter is a meticulous, thoughtful explorer of new ways to bring healing to our nervous systems and our lives. Unrealistically tall, thin, good-looking actors holding hands in outdoor bathtubs and canoodling in public. There’s plenty of lead in the pencil — it’s the numerous other realities of everyday married life that get in the way of romance.
My yawns begin discretely, but as I reach maximum inhale, my face contorts, my nostrils flare and my double chin triples. As a middle-aged couple with the typical achy joints, breathing issues and quirky habits, there is a whole rigmarole we have to go through before we can actually attempt sleep. With the door wide open, he makes all necessary deposits before flushing, and leaving the seat up. Francis can’t sleep with the lights on, so I grab the set of reading glasses I recently found a local discount store that have little LED lights built into them. I glance over at him from my contour pillow, looking like some kind of drooling underground miner, and nearly blind him with my laser beams. Francis yawned during the gospel, Anna wouldn’t hold my hand during the “Our Father,” and no one but me sang the hymns. Fifteen minutes later he was back, and as he ran past the backyard gate, he saw me sitting there. When the kids were young, I loved the sticky bunches of dandelions they’d pick for me out of our backyard.
Mothers work tirelessly and selflessly to raise kids and create a homes for their families. I’ve got to get rid of this albatross around my neck!” my husband Francis exclaimed recently, with plenty of overly-dramatic Italian gesturing with hairy arms. Even though “homesteading” was frowned upon, we didn’t care – our son had been diagnosed with developmental delays, and in order for his treatment to be effective, he needed stability. Every spring, while the daffodils, azaleas, ferns and hostas pushed through the mulch, Francis and I argued about whether the lawn needed aerating.
Francis isn’t sad to see her go, because he is tired of the responsibilities and stresses of renting and maintaining a house from a distance. In fact, from October through March, the prickly hairs on my knees remain completely undisturbed. It’s about bodily exposure, natural inhibitions, the new meaning of modesty, and the pressure to conform to modern trends. More than any other country on Earth, we value certain individual liberties that we feel are our inalienable rights as human beings.
The most obvious form of this human drive to break free from expectations and conventions, is our clothing.
As the decades passed, that itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka-dot bikini got smaller and smaller; until today, when a perfectly acceptable bathing suit consists of about six square inches of Spandex and a few strings.
In fact, it is now so fashionable to expose body parts, even flagrant nudity has become Bohemian. Furthermore, Nudists are now “Naturalists” who are celebrated and no longer banished to the unaccepted fringe of modern society. Anyone who has ever seen a toddler rip their own diaper off and run buck naked through the house giggling knows that, on some level, nudity is a natural inclination. We let my youngest, Lilly, play nearby while we rolled Sherwin Williams “Demur Rose” onto the white walls. I kept myself covered whenever possible, but my teammates’ attitudes ran the gamut, including Michelle Gordon, who we lovingly nicknamed “Flesh” because she would strip down to her birthday suit as soon as we set foot in the locker room. I might shave my knees each spring, but you won’t see me wearing a crop top and Daisy Dukes just because the bees are buzzing. I gestured with my hand to the middle seat, and their facial expressions replied, “Oh, terrific. However, he was a human radiator, emanating a steady stream of sweltering breath, body heat, and general male exhaust. Any drive of more than 20 minutes had to include a stop on the side of the road so Lisa could “toss her cookies.” One time, when I went with my father to Pittsburgh, I did just that. An every-man-for-himself mentality set in, and the guy beside me released his tensed muscles, allowing his full girth to invade my already confined space. Shouldn’t I warn my seat mates that I’m about to become an erupting tuna salad volcano?
The battle between the unusual mix of controversial establishment, infamous outsider, and political fringe candidates has been downright epic. Everyone knows about the recent attacks in Paris, San Bernardino and Brussels; but did you know that hundreds of other innocent victims were killed in lesser-known terrorist attacks in Turkey, Nigeria, Mali, Tunis, Indonesia, Burkina Faso, Somalia and the Ivory coast during the same time period?
With the Senate refusing to hold hearings on Obama’s replacement nominee, the next President could very well influence the laws of this country for a generation to come. According to The Council of State Governments Data Center website, there were 221,925,820 eligible stateside voters in the 2012 election, 58.7 percent of whom voted successfully. Our military members fight silently for our right to vote, and now it’s time for their voices to be heard. We had just picked her up from a confirmation class retreat, which included confessions with our parish priest.
Between the exterminator bills, scout meetings, dog walks, soccer games, dryer lint, piano lessons, sinus infections, and football practices, there wasn’t much time left for mother-daughter chats about right and wrong. Molinari,” Principal Stubblefield told me one afternoon, “we think Lilly has forged your signature.
So she conned her older brother into showing her “how Mommy signs her name,” then cut out his best attempt (white paper), and taped it onto the Incident Report (green paper).
Thanks to my parental neglect, Lilly was now destined to rotate through dangerous county jails, maximum security facilities, and sketchy halfway houses on her way to a life of hard crime. Well, not exactly, but we planned that she would call Lilly to the Office (every kid’s worst nightmare), sit her down across from the big desk, and open the gigantic rulebook to the page that says dishonest kids get expelled from school. I stood in the back of the church, as she walked down the center isle to sit in a pew with Father Jim. By some stroke of good luck or coincidence, my husband, Francis, had been asked to be the guest of honor at the ball, and had enthusiastically accepted. There is a particular script that is followed at each event with minimal variation, so it’s easy to overlook the significance of the rituals or let one’s mind wander during the speeches. Four uniformed singers kept perfect harmony, as the entire crowd crooned, “For the land of the free!
I ate enough to test the bounds of my Spanx, before settling in with a cup of coffee to watch Francis’ speech.
I also had food that did not need to be in the fridge such as tortilla rounds, protein shake powder, rice cakes, almond nut butter, blue diamond round rice crackers and some flax and grain gluten free crackers I picked up from Costco. Of course for my higher carb days I had packed with me gluten free graham crackers and other sugary treats like honey flavored chex cereal, marshmellows and some dairy free chocolate chips because I love sugar as do my kids. If you are hooked on bread sub for tortilla, lettuce, cabbage or seaweed, rice crackers, or rice cakes. If you are doing more intense weight training you may want to try either a boiled egg or rice cake with nut butter. Carbs are simply required to fill the muscles with glycogen, which is the energy the body will start to tap into once your training crosses a certain threshold of intensity. Especially relevant for bodybuilders is the requirement of fat for the production of testosterone. Since protein synthesis is what we are after, it only makes sense to supply the body with a fresh batch of the building blocks of muscle: protein.
Also, taking protein in the form of whey will supply the fuel a lot quicker than eating a chicken breast for example. After inputting your email, you will be taken directly to the download page for instant access to the workout. I average about 200-250g per day (i eat a lot of chicken per day, with 30g or Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex in the morning, and 60g at night right after my workouts). My protein levels are higher is that going cause me problems or if I keep within my calorie target will that be ok? In four weeks my body fat has gone up nearly 2% and I’ve put on 2kg, very little of which to my eye is lean mass. You are going to love your fast gains on THT :)Join thousands over the world who are packing on slabs of new muscle for free with Targeted Hypertrophy Training (THT). They looked at the weight loss achieved by either a low-fat diet or a low-carbohydrate diet at both 6 and 12 months.
Again both of these articles appear in the exact same issue of the exact same journal. The science tells us to eat less carbs and more fat and the recommendation that we should take to our patients tells us to do just the opposite.
Over the past several decades dietary fat has been virtually castigated, despite excellent science indicating that even as it relates to weight-loss, more dietary fat with reduction of carbohydrates is clearly the most effective approach, as once again confirmed by this recent study appearing in the highly respected and influential Journal of the American Medical Association. The public can be made aware of these advances in proving a high good fat, low carb diet is best for a lot of issues. Cholesterol got the blame for a crime it did not commit, high triglycerides would indicate to me a liver issue, try nettle or dandoline tea, whwt you need to know are you LDL and HDL levels, Hdl is the good one, try avocado and coconut oil, poison Ivy! On the contrary the excerpts from the study copied below make it clear that they specifically conclude that low carb and low fat diets are equally efficacious.
At 6-month follow-up, the low-carbohydrate diet class had the highest estimated probability of being superior to all other diet classes at 83%; however, at 12-month follow-up, the low-fat diet demonstrated the highest probability at 50%.
The weight loss differences between indivdual named diets were small with likely little importance to those seeking weight loss. The study concludes clearly that there is no difference (in weight loss) between the two diets but I take issue with the original RCTs included in the meta-analysis and the level of control they had in their methodology.
The only fats in my diet are coconut oil, flax seed oil, krill oil, 2 eggs a week, and 1 salmon filet a week.
The only problem was, I was already extremely skinny and I got to the point where I was almost anorexic. Many of the people I refer to him are discovering practical ways to mitigate or reverse some of the most ominous prognoses.James S. The woman has silky long hair and flowing garments that might fall off at the slightest tug, and the man has a rugged jawline, piercing blue eyes and impossibly white teeth. Then, he stands at the mirror, trying to decide whether it is worth brushing his teeth or not. It takes a few minutes for him to fix the complicated straps of his sleep apnea headgear, and at the same time, I wrestle with the Velcro fasteners of my plantar fasciitis night splint boot.
I press the buttons on either side of the lenses, and two piercing rays illuminate the pages of my book.
I would normally be annoyed, but I figured they were just pretending to be lazy, disrespectful and negligent, because then I’d be really surprised when they revealed their fabulous Mother’s Day plans. I was so proud of their thoughtfulness, and I’d place the oozing stems in a little jelly jar in the center of our kitchen table.
Many, like me, put their careers aside, giving up all aspirations for professional rewards and respect, to dedicate themselves to their families.
Lucky for us, Francis was offered competitive Navy orders to Second Fleet, Fleet Forces Command, and Joint Forces Command, enabling us to stay put without jeopardizing his career. We added a screened porch, which became the site of many birthday dinners, afternoon coffee breaks, and Lilly’s first communion brunch. Unscrupulous property managers, surprise repairs, expensive maintenance, negligent renters, and those painful months between rentals when we had to pay our mortgage without receiving any rent checks, put Francis in the mood to sell. Time for another husband to gripe about the leaves in her gutters, and for another wife to plant pansies in her front beds.
And as long as we’re being brutally honest, I’ll admit it: During the winter, I really only shave my ankles and armpits. While tackling the intricacies of the trim, we failed to notice that Lilly had toddled downstairs and out into the backyard. The sun can shine all it wants, but I won’t put on anything with spaghetti straps, a plunging neckline or a mini skirt.
The 737 was pretty packed, and since Southwest operates on a first-come-first-served basis, we were in for a real treat. I reached up to the tiny air valve, otherwise known as the spewer of contagion, but it was already all the way open. I’d eaten a fistful of Nutter Butter Cookies before getting into my father’s Buick, and somewhere along Route 286, they came back up. As the plane began it’s rocky descent toward Ohio, I used my last ounce of sanity to grope for the airsickness bag. Personal attacks are the new norm, launched daily against candidates and even their spouses. This sacrament is shrouded with an impenetrable veil of secrecy, but we knew Lilly would tell us. Can you come in?” Apparently, Lilly had bossed a boy on the playground, and was told to have a parent sign the Incident Report. My dreams for her future were suddenly reduced to hoping she’d get her GED while serving out a sentence for Grand Theft Auto. I couldn’t hear what was said, but I saw Lilly’s little head bobbing as she told Father Jim a long story. In recent years, even the crackly recording of the morning National Anthem blaring over the loudspeakers in our base housing neighborhood makes me patriotically pause between sips of coffee to get a little misty, and Colors in the evening instills a certain melancholy pride in our unique lifestyle.
But … when I remap my career back to May 22, 1988, when I raised my right hand in the recruiter’s office, I realize I wouldn’t change a single day of it. From there the body goes to work repairing, compensating, and then over-compensating for the damage done.
A diet low in natural fats (both saturated and unsaturated) is a disaster for the natural bodybuilder. I’m getting more and more convinced that not being deficient in certain vitamins is another BB diet fundamental, especially since your vitamin D post.
If I can do more reps or use more weight with good form over the weeks, then I can be sure that positive changes are taking place in my body. He says, “I believe that THT training is the single best way to train for size and strength gains. There’s pressure in public opinion, and hopefully that will help anybody who is in the pocket of the old school lobby to make a break and follow where the solid science is leading. To drive the point home, their medical Boards include exactly zero questions on that topic.
I generally eat lots of raw nuts and small amounts of home cultured tempeh, mushrooms, and beans for protein, along with large amounts of greens, moderate veggies, and daily citrus. However, if I now understand this diet correctly (I’m a newcomer), the idea is to have 20% of the calorie intake from protein (not 5 steaks a day), and fat MAINLY from healthy vegetable sources (olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds) coupled with a more moderate amount of animal fat.
I went back on wheat (and gained it all back!), then became an insomniac and started getting terrible headaches.
After exploring a few more dead ends, we got a mixed dozen in the Dunkin’ Donuts Drive Thru and headed home, Francis promising that something special was in store. But I have never liked cut flowers bought from the store, and my family has known this for years. Find a sunny spot for a family picnic, without anyone complaining that someone else took the last bag of ranch Doritos. Anna broke her arm falling from our backyard playset, and the following year, Lilly got stitches in her head for the same reason. We panicked for a few moments before we saw her out the bedroom window, completely naked, petting the neighbor’s cat.
And no matter how hot it gets, I won’t squeeze my 49-year-old-mother-of-three frame into a string bikini.
Problem was, the Buick door was so huge, my father had to run around to help me open it, and didn’t make it in time. But I realized that she’d been reading the same Spinal Surgery ad in the airline magazine for the last hour, and knew she must’ve fallen asleep. And there is talk of last-minute third-party candidates, brokered conventions, and prophesies that we are on the brink of a political revolution. However, it still wasn’t clear whether Lilly’s “mark” would be top grades, or graffiti on the girl’s bathroom wall. However, if you believe that you are carb-sensitive and want to control your insulin levels, you should eat smaller, more frequent meals for that purpose (especially on a higher-carb diet like GLAD). This can prevent effective muscle uptake of creatine. 5g per day is the dosage I recommend. I personally didn’t note any difference with this method, but I would encourage people who see themselves as non-responders to at least try it. I am a proponent of the LCHF regime but as a scientist I have to be objective in how I read and report research studies. Diet is meat, non-starchy vegetables, full-fat dairy and the occasional handful of almonds, along with lots of water. For the next six months I’ll exercise more, walk twice as far each day, and cut back on carbs even more. Later, the kids can cook something for dinner that doesn’t have chocolate chips, and clean up without suctioning each other with the Shop Vac. Lilly would toddle across the circle in nothing but a diaper to flirt with Jimmy, our 16-year-old neighbor. Seeing Lilly confess, I bowed my own head and admitted that I should’ve paid more attention to my little girl. On Friday nights, we drank cold beer with our neighbors while sitting in lawn chairs on the driveway. After that, we couldn’t use the car’s heat or air conditioning without being blasted with an odoriferous reminder of that day. Since cholesterol is mostly derived from animal fat, I would assume it is good to ensure a proper intake of it by eating eggs and meat products in addition to vegetable fats (BTW where do vegans get their cholesterol or do they just produce all they need themselve?) One thing I am not completely clear on is what my approach to animal fat should be. And mornings, we could hear the Fairfield Elementary School announcements from our front porch.
And what makes butter (dairy fat) healthy, while dairy products in general should be avoided (due to their tendency to induce inflammation, I would think)?
