Can You Afford To Eat Well?

by Fred Hahn on January 27, 2014

I saw this on the Let Fat Be Thy Medicine. I hope they won’t mind my shameless promotion of their movie by using this pic. And…you won’t be buying nearly as many (if any) antacids, acne cream, arthritis meds, cholesterol meds, insulin (if you’re type 2), dry skin salves, eye drops, ear wax removal liquids, […]

Got a Fatty Liver?

January 7, 2014

As we all know, many people today suffer from obesity. For many obese people, one of the common ailments that comes along for the ride is a fatty liver. An overly fatty liver (greater than 10%) can be problematic. Your liver performs many important tasks and thus needs to be in tip-top shape in order […]

Happy New Strength!

January 2, 2014

Well, we’re off! 2014 is here and so are you! It’s time, don’t you think, to create that body you’ve always wanted? I’m here to help. I’m not talking about getting thin or skinny or getting a 6 pack. In my opinion, these are just cosmetic considerations that have nothing to do with your main […]

My Low Carb Diet is Killing My Thyroid. I Need Me Some Starch!

October 9, 2013

Here’s my 2 cents worth of thought on the issue: No it’s not and no you don’t. What may be “killing” your thyroid is a poorly formulated low carb diet – just like any poorly formulated diet might. But it ain’t the lack of starch, as starch is non essential to human life. The lack of what […]

How To Solve The American Health Care System

August 25, 2013

How you ask? I’ll tell you how – we need to stop making people need it. And how do we do this? Simple. Each individual must: 1. Eat only fatty animal matter (including organs) with a salad and seasonal fruit 2 or 3X a day. 2. Lift weights slowly to fatigue, 2X a week, with […]

Sugar, not Fat, is the Big Fat Slob

August 22, 2013

I said it before and I’ll say it again: obesity is not caused by eating too much food per se. It’s caused by the type of food you eat and how the food you’re eating affects your hormones. Do you really think 2000 calories of Twinkies affects your body in exactly the same way as […]

Do Calories Count – Simplified.

May 3, 2013

If…you are eating crap and getting fatter and you start eating more crap, you’ll get even fatter. Probably. If…you are eating really well and becoming leaner and you start eating more (of all the right stuff), you’ll stop getting leaner and get fatter. Probably. This is how calories count. But… Eating more or less calories […]

What If Meat Was Good For You?

April 13, 2013

Wouldn’t that be nice? Imagine steak being proclaimed as a health food…as it once was. Sigh. Will those days ever return? Not if certain researchers have anything to say about it! I’m sure that many of you saw the recent article in the NY Times about a study that showed the bacteria in our guts […]

You’re Seven Feet Tall Because You Eat Too Much

March 7, 2013

Or, do you just eat a lot when you’re seven feet tall? Think this is a dumb point to make? When this young man walks into a room, does anyone think “Wow – that is one tall kid! He must be eating too much!” No. Of course not. We know that he has a hormonal […]
