4 I FEEL like working out. I didn't like the word stamina to describe the product because I felt like it was too much of a male word and had a sexual connotation. However, now that I have taken the product I agree that the word stamina really does describe how it affects me. My 12 hour days are not so unbearable. I still have energy at the end of the day and am not dragging myself home. I don't know if this is a good thing but my skin is oilier. I feel like the pill Laminine warms me from the inside out. I would say that I felt a little numb. I didn't have much emotion but I feel like I have become alive again. This is what I have after 1 week. I am still working on this journey. I am excited to see what the next few weeks brings. I am headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on March 14th and I am looking forward to being in a swimsuit again! I am also excited about the way I feel and the emotions I am feeling again. YEAH! I went to the gym today for the first time since I have been feeling better.
Back in 60s and 70s, many prominent scientists believed that saturated fat was the main cause of heart disease, by raising the "bad" cholesterol in the blood. This idea was the cornerstone of the low-fat diet. Because of a few bad studies and misguided political decisions, this diet was recommended to all Americans in the year 1977.
However, there wasn't a single study on this diet at the time. The American public became participants in the largest uncontrolled experiment in history. This experiment didn't turn out very well and we are still suffering the consequences..
The "war on saturated fat" has been a miserable failure. It was initially based on flawed studies, but somehow became public policy (with disastrous consequences). The worst part is... the governments and health organizations have yet to change their position despite overwhelming evidence that they've been wrong all along. Actually, saturated fat doesn't really raise LDL that much. The effect is weak and inconsistent and appears to depend on the individual . When saturated fat does affect LDL, it changes the particles from small, dense (very, very bad) to Large LDL, which is mostly benign . Saturated fat also raises HDL cholesterol, which is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease . If anything, saturated fats actually improve the lipid profile, NOT the other way around. In the past few years, many massive studies have examined the link between saturated fat and heart disease risk.
