Trans Fatty Acids: The poison in our food supply that most people are STILL eating every day By Tom Venuto

Most people are eating a poison every day without giving it a second thought. This substance can increase belly fat and consuming even small amounts (2% of total energy intake) is consistently linked to coronary heart disease. The research also says that this stuff can increase visceral fat, contribute to insulin resistance, increase risk of type 2 diabetes, increase bad cholesterol, decrease good cholesterol, trigger systemic inflammation and adversely affect almost every cell in your body.

What substance could be so harmful that it causes all of these health problems and yet is so prevalent in our food supply that most people are eating dangerous amounts every single day? This industrially manufactured ingre-

years. Research papers linking trans fats to heart disease date back to the 1970’s. In 1994, the Center for Science in the Public Interest petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to put trans fats on food labels (didn’t happen until 2006). Since 2006, TFA’s have thankfully received a decent amount of publicity when they were in the news regarding new food labeling laws and the banning of their use in restaurants in some states.

New studies have been published in the past year confirming the dangers of TFA’s. Four recent studies indicated 24, 20, 27 and 32% higher risk of myocardial infarction (MI) or CHD death for every 2% energy of TFA consumption isocalorically replacing carbohydrate, SFA, cis monounsaturated fatty acids and cis polyunsaturated fatty acids, respectively. TFA intake in the United States still averages 2-3% of total energy intake, 4% in some developing countries where fast food is being introduced and as high as 8-10% in certain subgroups (who eat large amounts of baked goods, fried foods, pastries, doughnuts, etc). The government recommended maximum is 1% of total energy intake (2 grams!). Some experts say there is NO safe level of TFA intake.

Legislation has been enacted in some states banning the use of TFAs in restaurants. It was big news New York.

In 2002 when I published the first edition of my ebook, Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, I warned my readers of the dangers of trans fatty acids. I was not the only one either. Years ahead of the 2006 law requiring trans fats to be listed on food labels and the 2007-2008 restaurant TFA bans, numerous health professionals were already warning people to stay away from TFA’s.

A campaign for better education and lifestyle change is worth supporting. As researchers from Harvard said, “A comprehensive strategy to eliminate the use of industrial TFA in both developed and developing countries, including education, food labeling, and policy and legislative initiatives, would likely prevent tens of thousands of CHD events worldwide each year.” For a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and for better long-term compliance, I’m rarely in favor of tagging any foods as totally ���forbidden” or to use words as strong as “poison” in describing foods. But if there are any exceptions, trans fats are one of them. References

If you are unable or unwilling to eliminate TFA’s from your diet completely, then you would be wise for the sake of your health and your family’s health, to keep foods containing TFA’s to a bare minimum and avoid eating any TFA-laden foods on a daily basis. Last, but not least, be on guard, because history tells us that when one harmful food additive is banned, it is often replaced with another, which is sometimes even worse. That’s why item #1 on my list of four ways to avoid trans fatty acids is the best way to

Choose a Diet Plan Now and Lose Weight by Halloween By Coose a Diet Plan Now and Lose Weight by Halloween

Believe it or not Fall is already here. It just snuck up on us didn't it? If you are like many people you started the summer out looking and feeling pretty good about yourself, because you lost weight during the spring, in preparation for summer. You wanted to get fit and be able to look great in shorts and sleeveless shirts, right? Well, now that summer has passed you might be frustrated when you get on the scales. After summer barbeques, concerts, dinners and camping, you've probably added a few, or more, pounds. So you need to choose a diet plan now and lose weight by Halloween, because it's less than a couple months away. If you are planning a Halloween party for the adults, it of course will be a costume party. Have you decided on a costume yet or does it depend on your weight? You know, beside losing weight for upcoming Halloween, it's just a good time of year to lose weight in preparation for all of the Fall and Winter holidays when most people tend to over-indulge. Did you know that September 2 and January 2 are the two biggest times of every single year when people choose diet plans? They begin in September because it's a new season, school starts back and it's a time of renewal. Well, we all know why January 2 is the biggie, for diets.

Another reason to choose a diet plan now and lose weight by Halloween is for a really good reason. If you lose the amount of weight you want to by the end of October, you will be more likely to watch your diet and not eat and drink too much during the following holiday months, because you won't want to waste all of the work you just put into losing weight, not to mention it feels so good when you've lost the weight that's been making you feel, crummy. If you need a little help finding the right diet that will speed up your metabolism so you can start burning fat right away, please visit here. Keeping the weight off is probably more important than the initial weight loss it-

self, because it has a direct effect on your overall health and well-being and the diet you follow plays a significant role in permanent weight loss as well.

Why Weight Lifting Is An Exercise That Delivers Top Health Benefits By Vince DelMonte

While some individuals are strictly interested in obtaining muscle for aesthetics, for most people, this isn’t an interest. Instead, you’re more interested in knowing what health benefits weight lifting will have for you…

thus reducing the chance they become injured when participating in other physical activities.

Vince DelMonte - Vidoe:

If you’ve ever been injured, you know just how frustrating this can be. In about 80% of all injury cases, the injury is a direct result of a tendon, ligament, or muscle not being strong enough when a stressful force is applied.

Ab Circuit!

Since weight training will really hit all those deep tendons and ligaments, it’s the best injury prevention out there. Reduction of Health Related Risks Numerous studies have demonstrated that regular weight training can have a positive effect on health by showing reductions in the rate of insulin resistance, blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer. Far too many people overlook the many health and fitness benefits that weight training has to offer, and because of this, experience problems down the road with their body such as decreased bone density, a slowed metabolic rate, increased stress levels and other negative consequences that are associated with constant stress.

If you couple a solid weight training program then with a well-thought out diet, you’ll be putting your best foot forward at warding off these chronic problems Prevention of Fat Gain

Increased Bone Density

The more you weight lift, the higher your metabolism will be, thus the more food you can eat while maintaining your weight. If that isn’t good news for your future and the fight against body fat, I’m not sure what is.

Weight lifting, being one of the best weight bearing exercises you can do, will increase your bone density and help ward off osteoporosis or stress fractures in the future.

Now, with all of this said, one big problem many people run into is the thinking pattern that using a muscle building program will make you big and bulky.

Many people think running is the best exercise for increasing bone density, but this isn’t necessarily true. If the truth is told, running actually promotes muscle breakdown in the body, while weight lifting, being an anabolic process, helps to promote the building of tissues. Therefore, weight lifting is going to be much better at preserving your bone mass, not to mention it’s far less impact than going for an hour run. Decreased Frequency of Injuries When you strength train, not only are your muscles going to get stronger, but you’ll also work the ligaments and tendons that are connecting bones, muscles, and other tissues,

Why Weight Lifting Is An Exercise hat Delivers Top Health Benefits By Vince DelMonte

This is most certainly not the case. Let’s look at an analogy to gain an understanding of this. Pretend you have two teams and each are going to try and build a house using the exact same building technique. One team is given 10,000 bricks to construct this house, and the second team is given only 1,000 bricks.

Who’s going to build the bigger house? The choice should be obvious – team one since they have more bricks to build it with. Now, think of those bricks as being the calories you put into your body. Unless you’re supplying enough calories, you aren’t going to build really big muscles. This is precisely what makes bodybuilders look like bodybuilders. It’s not just about the way they train, but more about the way they eat (if you’ve ever had a teenage son in the growing process in your house, you likely know just how much food must be consumed when growing at rapid rates). Whether it’s growing in height during puberty or trying to build bigger muscles later on, calories must be supplied for this growth process to take place. You can’t build a house out of nothing.

Likewise, you can workout all you want, but if those building blocks – in the form of amino acids, carbohydrates, and dietary fats are not there, you aren’t going to see too much muscle growth. So, don’t get caught thinking that just because you add weight lifting to your workouts, you’re going to develop large bulky muscles. If you control your diet, this simply will not happen. So, hopefully it is clear now that just because you’re weight lifting, it does not mean you will end up with bulky muscles as a result. Many people make this incorrect assumption – but it really is the diet that makes all the difference in how this weight lifting will shape your body. When you make the decision to work with me using my 6-Pack Ab Quest program, I’ll take you through the weight lifting and ab techniques that will provide maximum results with minimal effort on your part (why spend more time in the gym than you have to?), as well as provide you with meal plans that are custom designed to ensure you get the best results from your training without the muscle bulk – in fact, the plans are formulated to help you shed the fat so you look leaner and more defined. Not choosing to include weight training as part of your current workout program is without-a-doubt the biggest mistake you could make as far as your long-term health and fitness level is concerned. Don’t let this exercise pass you by any longer.
