Forbes: New Dietary Guidelines on Cholesterol Suggest that 50 Years of Medical Advice Was Wrong; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews the Report


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

Cholesterol in the diet or in the blood does not increase risk of heart disease, according to new research. In fact, shocking new cholesterol guidelines have been released by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee based on this new data. There is a paradigm that has been accepted by the medical community regarding cholesterol since 1961. This standard stated that there is both “good” and “bad” cholesterol, and when an individual eats certain foods, it increases “bad” cholesterol in the blood, which in turn can lead to heart disease. This paradigm has been shattered by new research.

A summary of the committee’s December 2014 meeting says “Cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for over consumption.” (See Harvard.edu, from February 12, 2015) (2) In other words, “You don’t need to worry about cholesterol in your food.” (2)

Professor Dan Rader said that “most of the cholesterol in our blood is not derived from our diets. Every cell in your body makes cholesterol. The old guidelines were based on a wrong assumption. We now know that cholesterol in the diet makes very little difference in terms of bad cholesterol in blood.” (1) He continued, saying that “the scandal here is that it’s taking so long for science to get incorporated into nutritional guidelines.” (1) Professor Rader is a professor of molecular medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

But, if cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, what is?

According to the CBCD, the answer is latent viruses.

More than one study has linked viruses to heart disease. In fact, both the human papillomavirus (HPV) and the varicella zoster virus (VZV) have been linked to cardiovascular disease. For instance, “Women infected with the human papillomavirus, or HPV, are two to three times as likely as uninfected women to have had a heart attack or stroke, according to a report published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology.” (See the New York Times, from October 24, 2011) (3).

Another study found that VZV “is an independent risk factor for vascular disease.” (See the journal Neurology, from January 21, 2014) (4).

The Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), which is more common than HPV or VZV, is also linked to heart disease. “Looking at blood samples from 299 heart patients, researchers at Ohio State University found that those who had suffered a heart attack were the most likely to have inflammatory proteins circulating in their blood compared to patients with less acute symptoms. And having more of one of these proteins in the blood was linked to the presence of antibodies that signal a latent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) reactivation.” (See News-Medical.net, from January 23, 2013) (6).

CMV is another common virus, which is linked to heart problems. “Cytomegalovirus was found to be the most common specific finding in immunocompetent patients (people with healthy immune systems) with fatal myocarditis.” (See Clinical Infectious Diseases, from March 1, 2005) (7).

“The new dietary recommendations, based on new research that shows no association between cholesterol and heart disease, should be no surprise to those who read Dr. Hanan Polansky’s book entitled ‘Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease.’” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

According to Dr. Polansky, the cause of heart disease, and other major diseases, is a latent infection with common viruses, including HPV, VZV, EBV, and CMV. Moreover, this theory also explains why the HPV study reports that “about 20 percent of patients with heart disease lack obvious risk factors (such as levels of saturated fat in the bloodstream).” (3)

How do latent viruses cause heart disease?

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky’s theory, these viruses are genetic parasites. In high concentrations, they microcompete with the human genes, “starve” these genes, and force them to behave as if they’ve been mutated, that is, to behave as if they are broken.

The Theory of Microcompetition is far-reaching. It applies to many viruses, many genes, and many diseases.

The CBCD encourages doctors and other healthcare professionals to read Dr. Polansky’s book, which predicted that viruses would be the cause of most major diseases, including heart disease, more than ten years ago. “The concept of Microcompetition (or Starved Gene) will change our approach in the study of chronic diseases and will furthermore give scientists a higher level of understanding in biology.” – Dr. Marc Pouliot, PhD (See more reviews of Dr. Polansky’s book at: http://www.cbcd.net/reviews.htm )

King Kullen Helps Customers with New Years Resolutions

Bethpage, NY (PRWEB) January 27, 2015

January is the perfect time for a fresh start. Those looking to gain a healthier and more active lifestyle can do so with the help of King Kullen. King Kullen is committed to helping all their customers accomplish their goals and stick to their new year’s resolutions this month. The grocery store is offering tips on the best foods to eat and more for the winter season.

Incorporating certain foods into one’s diet can help to encourage weight loss. For example, grapefruit is low in calories and sugar as well as high in soluble fiber, which satisfies and prevents overeating. Green tea can help to increase the metabolic rate of the human body, which intensifies the rate at which the body burns calories into energy.

Cinnamon, lemon and honey can all be beneficial for one’s diet and can be consumed in a cup of tea. Cinnamon helps stabilize blood sugar levels, which results in fewer cravings. Lemon helps to lose weight by increasing metabolic rate. Honey provides a desired sweetness, while also providing necessary nutrients and helping with proper digestion.

Making a few substitutions in one’s regular diet can also result in healthy benefits. Try quinoa instead of rice or avocado instead of mayo. Mix tuna or chicken with avocado for a tasty salad. Avocado mixed with lemon can also be used in place of fattening dressings. Blend frozen bananas and almonds or peanut butter for a sweet treat instead of ice cream.

It can be difficult to find motivation to exercise, since it’s too cold to do anything outdoors. However, there are plenty of fun workouts that can be done indoors. Using weights or an exercise ball can help increase one’s strength or try this workout for something fun and equipment-free.

Warm up with some winter spices this month. Allspice, star anise, chai and cloves are the perfect addition to your tea and more. Star anise has powerful infection-fighting properties due to its compounds of shikimic acid and anethole. It can be used in tea or even applesauce. Try making this delicious homemade apple cider with allspice and cloves.

The crockpot is an extremely useful tool for warm winter meals. Whether it’s for soup, stew or something else, it’s sure to be delicious and perfect for the winter season. These soup recipes are both healthy and delicious, so the whole family is sure to love them. Check out King Kullen’s Pinterest page for more great slow cooker recipes.

It can be tempting to spend the whole winter season lying on the couch under a blanket, but there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family moving. Spice things up a bit this winter and try something new. Take the kids to an indoor skating rink for a fun family activity that requires exercise. Build a fort or go camping in the living room. Spend some time making crafts like this paper heart penguin. King Kullen’s Pinterest page offers tons of ideas for fun crafts and recipes to make with the kids.

The winter season offers great opportunities to make some changes in one’s diet, exercise and activities. This year, try something different to stick to a new year’s resolution and to improve your life. For great food, recipe ideas and more, visit the nearest King Kullen location today.

Yet the growing popularity among business insiders and investors is merely a reaction to the fitness company’s popularity among consumers and its ability to produce noticeable results.

“That’s why we call it ‘The Unstoppable Fitness Formula,’” says Keuilian, “we’ve carefully developed this powerful fitness system that combines innovative and constantly changing workouts, personal attention from certified fitness instructors and personal trainers, and careful nutritional guidance prepared by licensed health professionals.

“It’s exactly this system that allows our clients to achieve such impressive results and it’s what is going to allow anyone the ability to achieve, maintain, and even surpass their New Year’s fitness resolutions.”

Exuding confidence and encouragement, Keuilian presented his vision for the company:

“As one of the fastest growing global brands in the group fitness and personal training industry, Fit Body Boot Camp’s Global Goal is to expose and engage 20% of the world’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020.”

Whether Keuilian and Fit Body Boot Camp will experience the fruition of this particular resolution remains to be seen. For those seeking assistance with their personal New Year’s resolutions, however, Keuilian is certain about one thing: Fit Body Boot Camp is their best bet for transforming their bodies and lives.

Diet Doc Announces Calorie Loading Diet Plans that Help Patients get a Head Start on New Years Weight Loss Resolutions


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2014

Although it may sound unbelievable, the holidays is the perfect time to launch Diet Doc’s calorie loading diet plans because it allows patients to load up on all of their favorite holiday dishes and jump start their New Year’s weight loss resolutions without anxiety or weight gain worry. Patients are actually encouraged to load up on excess calories to reset the metabolism and prepare the body for ketosis, which will begin during Phase II of the calorie loading diet plans.

Diet Doc combined scientific research from the 80s, when it was discovered that short periods of high fat, high carbohydrate consumption increased the body’s metabolism and fat oxidation, with their modern medical understanding. And, because Diet Doc is dedicated to bringing the safest and most effective method of weight loss to everyone, they partnered with Telemedicine, enabling patients in even the most remote regions of the country to choose the best health care and weight loss doctors in the nation and accelerate their New Year’s weight loss resolutions without leaving the comfort of their own home.

New patients will complete a health questionnaire and schedule an initial online consult with a Diet Doc physician who will review medical history to ensure that their calorie loading diet plans are the best weight loss method based on each patient’s personal lifestyle, nutritional needs and medical conditions. Next, patients are encouraged to load up on their favorite holiday dishes which boosts the metabolism and prepares the body to begin burning this extra fat. While all patients will qualify for meal and snack plans that are tailored to their specific needs, many will be eligible to accelerate fat loss with Diet Doc’s prescription hormone treatments, diet pills and appetite suppressants. These diet products not only promote fast weight loss, but they help patients over the initial weight loss hurdles by suppressing the appetite, and eliminating hunger, cravings and loss of energy during dieting.

Diet Doc’s calorie loading diet plans include unlimited personal attention and support from the entire staff, including certified nutritionists who work closely with each patient to design meal and snack plans. This one-on-one attention enables patients to begin to understand how the body reacts to specific foods and teaches them what food choices will keep their body operating optimally during dieting without compromising weight loss results.

The professional and dedicated staff helps patients learn how to kick bad eating habits and begin incorporating nutrient-rich, low calorie foods into their menu. Because carbohydrate consumption is streamlined, the body naturally forces fat that has become dangerously and comfortably nestled in the hard to reach areas into the bloodstream and quickly flushed from the system. Patients quickly begin noticing the loss of pounds and inches in these difficult to lose areas.

Diet Doc monitors each patient’s weight loss progress, attitude and comfort level with scheduled weekly checkup calls. This level of personal service cannot be duplicated by the competition and enables the doctors to quickly modify the calorie loading diet plans should weight loss taper.

Diet Doc has successfully guided thousands of patients toward improved emotional and physical health with their medically supervised calorie loading diet plans and urges those of all shapes and sizes, and in any part of the country, to call today to learn how to get a head start on their New Year’s weight loss resolutions.

About the Company:

Diet Doc Weight Loss is the nation’s leader in medical, weight loss offering a full line of prescription medication, doctor, nurse and nutritional coaching support. For over a decade, Diet Doc has produced a sophisticated, doctor designed weight loss program that addresses each individual specific health need to promote fast, safe and long term weight loss.

10 Tips for Weight Loss Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s


Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) November 30, 2014

Start a New Year’s resolution early and lose weight before the end of the year with these ten tips.

Why wait until the new year to start a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight? Dr. Jennifer Whirley-Diaz gives ten tips to weight loss.


Eat smaller amounts of food more frequently. It is better to eat every 4 hours with small meals than to eat larger meals three times a day. The smaller amounts of food will help keep insulin and blood sugar levels more stable and help decrease hunger.
Weigh in regularly, daily or at least weekly. Don’t let a weight change be a surprise. Don’t become stressed about small fluctuations, but deal with significant changes immediately so they don’t get out of hand.
Find an exercise that is comfortable, challenging and fun. The goal should be to get three to three and a half hours of exercise at least three times a week with 80% cardio and 20% strengthening.
Opt for a lower carbohydrate diet. Fruits and vegetables are healthy go-to complex carbohydrates, but do monitor the intake. Chips, crackers, pop corn, etc. are high carbohydrate snacks that don’t provide significant nutritional advantages.
Portion control is important. Make sure to determine the difference of being full and over full. Consider being over full as 100%, then stop eating once at 80% full. Also, read packages for portion size and stick to one serving. Never eat out of the box or package, there’s no control of the portion.
Be careful of the food preparation, control the ingredients and use spices to add flavor. Grill, bake, steam or broil. Look for healthy recipes.
Always eat breakfast. Eat a high protein breakfast within two hours of waking up.
Eat at home to have more control of the meals. It is easier to control portions and food prep style.
Make sure to hydrate, at least 64 ounces a day.
If you eat out, have a plan. Most restaurants will have their menu available on line and sometimes even have the calories of the meal options listed. Review the menu, research the calories and have a plan for the meal before arriving to the restaurant and stick to it. Split entrees and appetizers when at a restaurant. Share with a friend or take the other half home for an additional meal at a later time.

Losing weight is not the point of going on a diet. It is the mentality of making a lifestyle change. These changes can be small steps to make sure that they become part of the new lifestyle.
