Save 50% Health Care Costs: ONE change?

What if half of your health care costs (better yet, health problems) could be eliminated by doing one thing differently than you do now?

Michael Pollan said it today...

Grass-fed is one of FIVE eating strategies in Dr. Heidi's ER Fat Burn program...

Anyway, here's the scoop:
"Michael Pollan was on Martha Stewart today, talking about the 'rapidly growing trend towards GRASS-FED meats.' He is talking about conversations we can have with kids, as well politicians. Pollan estimates that 50% of human health care costs would be eliminated with grass-fed meats..."
That was posted today by one of Dr. Heidi's ER Fat Burn Certification students. They're all learning how to become ER Fat Burn coaches.

Most of what they're learning is quite novel, like eating grass fed meats. I believe the other ER Fat Burn principles, most quite weird, will also hit the mainstream. Because of the health and weight loss results her clients are getting. She'd be a wonderful guest on Martha Stewart, like Pollan, think? I'll tweet Martha. :)

P.S. I'm thrilled for Dr. Heidi, my bud. She's quietly leading the way in this long overdue eating change movement, with her bud, Vic. Soon I'll be able to say "I know her! And I knew her before she got famous!"

P. P.S. We still have a few spots left for Dr. Heidi's ER Fat Burn special I announced today.

Is Being Fat Contagious?

No. Really? When our friends get fat, we get fat.

Two distinguished researchers spent five years looking at the 5,000+ participants of the Framingham Heart Study (begun in 1948 and continued for two generations) to see what the effects of the relationships among the participants was. Here's their stunning discovery:

Obesity spreads more by association than genes
"In 1948 fewer than 10% of Framingham residents were obese. By 1985, 18% were, and today about 40% are. What changed? Social norms of diet and physical appearance." Wired, Oct 2009
By studying the Framingham folks as an interconnected network rather than a mass of individuals, the two researchers made this intriguing discovery:
Obesity spread like a virus. Weight gain had a stunning infection rate. If one person become obese, the likelihood that his friend would follow suit increased by 171 percent.
And, your friends are more predictive of your size than your spouse:
"Having an obese spouse raised the risk of becoming obese by 37 percent. If a friend became obese, the risk skyrocketed by 171 percent."
Moral: hang out with friends who are or are getting to the size you want to be. ER Fat Burn club anyone?

It works for happiness, too, they say.

Really weird dessert: pickled what?!

Here's from 78 year old Ann Carter, one of the ER Fat Burners in class right now. She just posted this to the ER Fat Burn Forum:
"Tonight for dessert I had pickled herring -- DESSERT !!

"For a confessed chocolate ice cream-aholic that's got to be weird. And, I make tea from coconut oil, and I add coconut oil to my Big B. And I eat butter, and sometimes use butter to fry my eggs.

"Now really - who do you know (besides other ER Fat Burners) who would call this normal eating???????? I don't care - I love it - AND I'm losing weight, and having fun experimenting in the kitchen a room I used to try to avoid, since I only liked to make cookies, cakes, etc. etc.) Hooray for ER Fat Burn." -Ann
Note from Dr. Heidi about Ann:

She has a good constitution
She was an athlete

Bodies can function VERY well at age 78

Ann lost 10 lbs her first week in the program. And while some peeps call that water loss, which it partly is, it's weight and girth she doesn't have anymore.
Plus her bad urges are going away: "Today, I resisted the urge for a DQ Blizzard, and instead, thoroughly enjoyed my cold rump roast."
FTC disclosures:

1. I market the ER Fat Burn program because I have lived it for 20+ years. I'm the same size now as when I was in college 30+ years ago. AND as part owner of the company, I benefit when the company makes sales.

2. Weight loss on ER Fat Burn is TYPICAL. Most everyone loses some weight on the program.

3. "I'm not hungry anymore" is the most common surprise reaction from nearly ALL ER Fat Burn participants.

4. Getting rid of little ailments is the other most common reaction from ER Fat Burn participants. It's an ER secret.

5. Most ER participants agree with Ann's comment today: "WEIRD FOODS BURN FAT!!"
If you'd like to check what all the weirdness is about, check out Dr. Heidi's ER Fat Burn Program. You can do it online even, and go at your own pace. Once you sign up, we take you right into our ER Fat Burn den of fun and iniquity. Hehehe.

Poison Additives From World's Top Chef?

“It would not occur to any fast-food chain to stuff us with 20 or 30 dishes full of chemical additives.”

How many ways can we make food taste really really special? You heard it here first: The world's top chef has stooped to the McDonald's strategy: envelop in it additives.

The 'world's best chef' puts so many additives in his dishes that his "menus should carry health warnings informing diners of the additives in the dishes," writes food writer Jorg Zipprick.
“These colorants, gelling agents, emulsifiers, acidifiers and taste enhancers that Adria has introduced massively into his dishes to obtain extraordinary textures, tastes and sensations do not have a neutral impact on health,” says Zipprick, adding that some have a laxative effect." More here

"Britain’s Restaurant magazine has five times voted El Bulli the best restaurant in the world, but Zipprick calculates that a single visit accounts for 16% of an individual’s annual additive intake."

“It would not occur to any fast-food chain to stuff us with 20 or 30 dishes full of chemical additives,” he says, referring to the El Bulli menu More here
Well, now you can pay top dollar and get your tasty poison additive fix.

I wonder how long this guy will keep his ranking as world's top chef now that his "secret" is out? Gross.

Did you know there's sugar in hot dogs?

Get this:
"Every man, woman and child consumes, on average, 43 teaspoons of sugar a day. In 13 days that adds up to a five-pound bag of sugar. -John Mackey, CEO Whole Foods, Wall St Journal 10.3.09
This doesn't mean, says Dr. Heidi, that every man, woman and child is sitting around eating 43 teaspoons of sugar each day. We all know lots of sugar is in candy, cookies, ice cream and sodas. But it's also in places you might never guess.
Did you know nearly ALL bacon, sausage and the all-beef hot dogs (from Whole Foods) have SUGAR in them? That's not all...

Sauces, especially barbecue sauce and ketchup have sugar. Plus mayonnaise, salad dressings, energy bars, ham and other deli meats (look for sugar or dextrose), canned chicken stock and soups (dextrose, corn syrup, sugar), and box cereals.
Yikes! The sugar is there because, I guess, we love it. We're addicted to it. OMG.

P.S. I NEVER knew there was sugar in bacon and all-beef hot dogs until a week ago. I don't buy those anymore. I never did buy any of the other stuff. Who knew?

Health Care: Feeding Our Habits?

Author Michael Pollan doesn't have much hope for the success of the health care plans being proposed in Washington right now.
Americans already spend twice as much per person as most European countries on health care, he says. And this can be explained, as a study released last month says, by our being fatter...More here.
John Mackey, Whole Foods CEO went further recently and and stated (PDF here in case) that instead of national health care, Americans need to be more responsible eaters.
"A healthy diet is a solution to many of our health care problems. Every man woman and child consumes, on average, 43 teaspoons of sugar a day. In 13 days that adds up to a five-pound bag of sugar." (Every 13 days a five-pound bag of sugar!?)
What's your take? You for or again' some form of health care funded by tax payer dollars?

The Burger that Shattered Her Life

Are you eating tainted meat?

She was a 22-year old children's dance instructor. Until she ate an industrial feedlot hamburger, just like the ones you probably eat. (She's pictured in a coma to the left. When she awoke 9 weeks later, she was paralyzed.)
"Neither the system meant to make the meat safe, nor the meat itself, is what consumers have been led to believe." New York Times here. (PDF here in case.)
If you had ANY idea what's really in the ground 'meat' you've been eating at restaurants and those you've bought from the supermarket, you would vomit. See here.

People will go to jail.

P.S. Who scared the NYTimes? Their original title for this front page story, on Oct 3 (I think) was "The Burger that Shattered Her Life." Now, it's the unappealing "E. Coli Path Shows Flaws in Beef Inspection."
