Bacon and Chicken Livers

Healthcare would be designed to make you healthy. We do not have that. We have a system designed to mask or cover up symptoms, while our underlying health deteriorates.

It is Deathcare Not Healthcare.

I am experimenting again … eating only butter, cream and coconut oil.  Here is the introduction and Day 1 post, “Fat Fast Day 1.” In yesterday’s post, “Day 2” … I ranted against the ADA and their ridiculous anti-saturated fat stance in addition to providing details on my fat fast. In this […]

Objectively and critically examine your life and lifestyle to see what can be changed or tweaked to improve overall health and fitness. Intense Exercise is GOOD!!! ... but too much, too often may have adverse affects.

Evaluate & Examine
