Heart disease is the #1 killer. However, traditional heart disease protocols--with their emphasis on lowering cholesterol--have it all wrong. Emerging science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as ineffective low-fat/high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry. The Great Cholesterol Myth reveals the real culprits of heart disease, including: - Inflammation - Fibrinogen - Triglycerides - Homocysteine - Belly fat - Triglyceride to HCL ratios - High glycemic levels Bestselling health authors Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., and Stephen Sinatra, M.D. give readers a 4-part strategy based on the latest studies and clinical findings for effectively preventing, managing, and reversing heart disease, focusing on diet, exercise, supplements, and stress and anger management. Get proven, evidence-based strategies from the experts with The Great Cholesterol Myth. MYTHS VS. FACTS Myth–High cholesterol is the cause of heart disease. Fact–Cholesterol is only a minor player in the cascade of inflammation which is a cause of heart disease. Myth–High cholesterol is a predictor of heart attack. Fact–There is no correlation between cholesterol and heart attack. Myth–Lowering cholesterol with statin drugs will prolong your life. Fact–There is no data to show that statins have a significant impact on longevity. Myth–Statin drugs are safe. Fact–Statin drugs can be extremely toxic including causing death. Myth–Statin drugs are useful in men, women and the elderly. Fact–Statin drugs do the best job in middle-aged men with coronary disease. Myth–Statin drugs are useful in middle-aged men with coronary artery disease because of its impact on cholesterol. Fact–Statin drugs reduce inflammation and improve blood viscosity (thinning blood). Statins are extremely helpful in men with low HDL and coronary artery disease. Myth–Saturated fat is dangerous. Fact–Saturated fats are not dangerous. The killer fats are the transfats from partially hydrogenated oils. Myth–The higher the cholesterol, the shorter the lifespan. Fact–Higher cholesterol protects you from gastrointestinal disease, pulmonary disease and hemorrhagic stroke. Myth–A high carbohydrate diet protects you from heart disease. Fact–Simple processed carbs and sugars predispose you to heart disease. Myth–Fat is bad for your health. Fact–Monounsaturated and saturated fats protect you from metabolic syndrome. Sugar is the foe in cardiovascular disease. Myth–There is good (HDL) cholesterol and bad (LDL) cholesterol. Fact–This is over-simplistic. You must fractionate LDL and HDL to assess the components. Myth–Cholesterol causes heart disease. Fact–Cholesterol is only a theory in heart disease and only the small component of LP(a) or “bb shot” LDL predisposes one to oxidation and inflammation.

Mit Mitte 20 war Dave Asprey ein erfolgreicher Unternehmer im Silicon Valley und Multimillionär. Doch er wog auch 140 Kilo, und das obwohl er der Empfehlung seiner Ärzte folgte, an sechs Tagen pro Woche nur 1800 Kalorien zu essen und 90 Minuten zu trainieren. Als sein Übergewicht ihm zunehmend die Sinne zu vernebeln begann und Heißhungerattacken ihm Energie und Willenskraft raubten, fing Asprey an, die Technologien, mit denen er reich geworden war, selbst zu nutzen, um seine eigene Biologie zu »hacken«. Er investierte 15 Jahre und 300?000 Dollar in alle erdenklichen Testverfahren und Selbstversuche, vom EEG bis zu einem Aufenthalt in einem tibetischen Kloster, um herauszufinden, wie er seinem Körper und Geist ein maximales Upgrade verschaffen konnte. Bulletproof – auf Deutsch »kugelsicher« oder »unverwundbar« – nennt er den Status, in dem man konstante Höchstleistung bringen kann, ohne auszubrennen oder krank zu werden. Asprey gelang es, seinen IQ um mehr als 20 Punkte zu erhöhen, sein biologisches Alter zu senken und ohne Kalorienzählen oder Sport 50 Kilo abzunehmen. Seine vielfältigen Erkenntnisse versammelt er in diesem Buch. Die Bulletproof-Diät hemmt entzündliche Prozesse im Körper, sorgt für schnellen, hungerfreien Gewichtsverlust und höchste Leistungsfähigkeit. Anstelle eines Frühstücks gibt es den berühmten Bulletproof-Kaffee mit Kokosöl und Butter, der lange sättigt und einen dauerhaften Energieschub verschafft. Kalorienzählen ist nicht nötig und auch bei weniger Schlaf und weniger Sport wird das überschüssige Fett nur so dahinschmelzen.

Weizen gefährdet Ihre Gesundheit Brot, Gebäck, Pizza, Pasta – Weizen ist in unserer Nahrung allgegenwärtig. Doch kaum jemand weiß, was für ein gesundheitsschädigender Dickmacher das goldgelbe Korn ist. Denn in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde das Getreide genetisch so verändert, dass es mit dem »Urweizen« nicht mehr viel gemein hat. Der »neue Weizen« macht dick, fördert Diabetes sowie den Alterungsprozess, schädigt Herz und Hirn und ist schlecht für die Haut. Dr. med. William Davis zeigt glutenfreie Ernährungsalternativen auf, und wie man gesund und schlank ohne Weizen leben kann.

30 Tage, die Ihr Leben - und das Ihrer Kinder - verändern! Ihr Sohn will partout sein Zimmer nicht aufräumen und Sie schimpfen und werden laut? Ihre Tochter trödelt jeden Morgenherum und Ihnen platzt mal wieder der Kragen? Kennen Sie das? So ging es auch der vierfachen Mutter und Bloggerin Sheila McCraith. Sie brüllte ihre Kinder wie so oft furchtbar an, doch diesmal hörte der Handwerker, der gerade im Haus war, mit... Sheila schämte sich entsetzlich, denn sie liebt ihre Kinder doch von Herzen. Und dann beschloss sie, nie wieder zu schreien. Die Orange-Rhino-Challenge entstand... Was Sheila schaffte, das schaffen Sie auch, in 30 Tagen: - Finden Sie heraus, was in Ihnen das aggressive Graue Rhino weckt, das sofort zum Angriff übergeht, wenn es gereizt wird. - Lernen Sie, mit Ihren individuellen Triggern umzugehen, statt gleich loszuschreien. - Bleiben Sie dran und werden Sie zum Orange Rhino, das selbst dann ruhig, liebevoll und bestimmt bleibt, wenn die Kinder den Bogen mal wieder mehr als überspannt haben.
