Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a complex disorder with its main characteristic being extreme fatigue that cannot be explained by any specific underlying medical condition.
Clinically, medications are only available to control the symptoms and not to cure the condition. It is an illness that creates physical and emotional struggles, and can lead to disability.
Diagnosing CFS is quite difficult because symptoms often mimic other conditions and illnesses. There is no single test to diagnose CFS. When you begin to find yourself tired, day after day and your fatigue does not go away, it is time to take notice that something may be wrong.
Close monitoring of your physical symptoms, daily activity and sleep levels are necessary Continue reading →
Food Too Deadly for Pigs Sold to Humans: when synthetic varnishes were invented the varnish makers had to find an alternative market for their old varnishes, so they sold them to us as food.
Best Experimental Animals
Pigs are the closest to humans in their response to food, so the best way to test the unsaturated vegetable oils as food would be to test them on pigs. But that would cost too much, so the salesmen persuaded the pig farmers to try out this new “super food” for pigs. I have a sneaky admiration for that sales job!
The farmers were delighted because unsaturated vegetable oils made pigs put on weight explosively, and they were obese enough to slaughter much sooner, so they didn’t require as much food. That seemed to make unsaturated vegetable oils perfect for pigs, but not for humans who wanted to stay slim.
Then the problems started. Pigs would die of cancer or heart attack before they could be slaughtered. So that market closed down. Do you remember what I said about pigs giving results closest to humans?
Growth of Heart Attacks
The first recorded heart attack was in Britain in 1878. In the early 1900s Dr Dudley White (referred to as the founder of cardiology) said that he wanted to find out more about the new disease reported in European medical literature, but he had to wait until 1921 before he met his first heart attack patient.
As the market for unsaturated oils continued to expand heart attacks and cancer became the second and third (medical “mistakes” kill most people) major causes of death and obesity has become an epidemic as saturated fat use dropped from 30gm per day to about 3gm per day. The pig farmers could have warned us!
Lies to Increase Market
You may be old enough to remember the start of some of these lies.
1.You can’t tell butter from margarine.
2.Unsaturated oils are healthy for you
3.Saturated fats are deadly for you
4.High cholesterol is caused by saturated fats and will kill you.
A couple of decades ago the researcher who was originally bribed to invent the cholesterol myth confessed his part in it. Margarine has been shown to be loaded with trans fatty acids that can kill you. Unsaturated oils cause heart attacks but saturated fats are good for you and help you lose weight. Think about it! How much unsaturated oil would our ancestors have eaten? They used to pig out on animal fats.
The main article mentioned in the resources box describes a deliberate policy to suppress the evidence. After all, if you owned a branch of the media would you want to lose your main advertisers just because you exposed their lies?
Unsaturated oils are drying oils. That means that they harden when exposed to oxygen, whether it is in putty, or varnish, or your blood stream.
Our ancestors lived on a diet high in saturated fats. Dr Yamori reported that rats given high cholesterol and saturated fat diets had fewer strokes. Saturated fats don’t produce free radicals, so antioxidants were not as necessary to our ancestors as they are in today’s diets.
The membranes round the cells in our body are mostly fat. Saturated fats are C shaped and interlock to produce a strong membrane. Unsaturated oils are straight so don’t lock together, so weaker membranes are produced, more open to infection.
Perhaps you don’t mind getting obese? If you take drugs to lower the amount of cholesterol produced by your liver you are 5% more likely to die of cancer. But that isn’t what worries me most.
Our brains are largely made up of cholesterol so Americans are becoming more stupid as they restrict the amount of cholesterol in their blood. Now that does worry me. I can be stupid enough without any help from interference with my cholesterol.
Before I mention a possible solution consider the bogus research results described by the media. One research report showed that saturated fats help you slim, and unsaturated fats make you gain weight. The media reported it as proving the opposite, which is the story that everyone hears.
Coconut is a special saturated fat. Unlike animal fats, coconut oil has short-chain molecules. As it happens these short chains can be burned for energy, and your body uses some of the long-chain fats to add fuel to the fire, so you actually lose weight.
That isn’t why coconut oil was banned for a few years. The vegetable oil manufacturers saw it as competition and did some spurious research to “prove” that it was dangerous to health. The ban was removed when their arguments fell through.
Even olive oil, the safest of unsaturated vegetable oils becomes toxic when heated too much, so although you can pour it over your salads you shouldn’t use it in your cooking. Coconut oil doesn’t have this problem.
Some chemically extracted coconut oil tastes vile, so you should shop around for a cold-pressed version.
What I’ve done is to replace all my unsaturated vegetable oils with coconut oil, and I’ve lost weight. Other people have lost weight the same way. Of course, the pig farmers could have told us that, and I wish they had blown the whistle a hundred years ago.
You know those people who always talk about their workouts, and yet when you go to the gym with them they actually look out of shape? Well, a similar scenario happened with Mike – a former client of mine and a self-proclaimed “gym buff”…
… When Mike, who was semi-active at the time, learned of my 3-day a week training program, he enthusiastically jumped on board. And unsurprisingly, it took him just one short intense workout before he realized the raw power of Turbulence Training.
While over the course of the program Mike and I disagreed on the length of recovery time between sets, there was certainly no arguing his results – in only 4 short weeks Mike had lost 10 pounds while gaining a TON of lean muscle mass.
Since Mike’s life-changing day many years ago, thousands of others have joined him in realizing the transformative power of total body, fast and effective workouts like the one found in the Turbulence Training Original workout program.
So what do YOU need to realize your own powerful transformation?
1) You’ll need to ditch slow, boring cardio.
That’s because it’s useless for fat loss and causes overuse injury. Bottom line, your time can be used much more efficiently to achieve the body you desire.
2) You’ll need to free up three, 45-minute slots a week.
Why so little time? Well, nowadays we’re too busy for 90-minute, six day-a-week workout programs. And by combining my short burst interval workouts with strategically designed supersets of dumbbell and bodyweight exercises, you’ll maximize your results in minimum time.
Just think of all the free time you’ll now have to spend with friends and family, or even just enjoying some of your hobbies!
The fusion of TT Original’s two intense, total body workouts with advanced interval training sessions has proven to work time and time again. And with the Turbulence Training 60-day, no questions asked money back guarantee, why not find out how you too can quickly transform your body from its current out-of-shape physique like Mikes, into a strong, lean and sexy work of art.
