EATING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE

New findings from the Mayo study, which were published in the European Heart Journal, suggest that reducing heart risk requires increasing the percentage of lean muscle mass at the expense of body fat.

Eating a healthy diet is important in reducing body fat, too, but Mayo Clinic researchers observe that if you only restrict calories, you risk losing an equal amount of body fat and lean muscle tissue and thus you could end up weighing less without significantly reducing the percentage of body fat.

The best way to avoid this is by consuming a diet that is a healthful balance of proteins, carbs and fats.  Beware of extreme calorie restriction or low carb diets…they usually cause muscle breakdown.  As the above referenced study indicates….it’s dangerous to lose weight at the expense of losing lean muscle tissue.  

 

335 calories and 5 grams of fat!

Restaurants' Secrets

Restaurants' dirtly little secrets. CBS News

Before you even walk in a restaurant's door, there are things that could be the first signs of whether you should keep on going, or go somewhere else.

On "CBS This Morning: Saturday," professional hotel fixer Anthony Melchiorri, host of the Travel Channel's "Hotel Impossible," said there are all sorts of giveaways, big and not-so-big.

"The first thing you look at - you look at the windows," he advised. "You look to see if there's flesh flowers outside, stickers on the doors. If it's a rated restaurant. is the sticker from ten years ago or is it from this year? If it's from ten years ago ... turn around and ... go home.

Taking Aurora to the Movies

Colorado Man Takes Aurora to the Movies. Huffington Post

Sometimes it's hard to find a light in the dark, especially in places where fear lurks. We struggle to understand such darkness, like what occurred in Aurora and Oak Creek.

Jason Cole, a father and tech software executive from Louisville, Colorado, saw the dark unfolding around him. He was determined to do something about it; to take the power of fear away, and place the power back into the hands of the people.

We Must Never Forget

One definition of the word ‘forget’ is “to treat with inattention or disregard," and that is simply something we can NEVER do on this day, September 11th.

I remember hearing my mom and dad talk about the assassination of JFK, they would recite in vivid detail where they were, how they felt and what they were doing when they heard about what had happened that terrible day in Dallas. As we have grown up, we have our own memories associated with historic events, but I would venture to say, none more memorable than what happened on this day in 2001. The events of 9/11 are events that we would certainly like to forget, but we must never forget. 

As a nation, we must never forget the nearly 3,000 sons, daughters, moms, dads, brothers and sisters that were lost that day. We must never forget the families that they left behind; this week I was reminded of just how important that is after getting a call from Maddie; she called to ask for prayer because she was having an especially tough time, Maddie lost her dad in the Twin Towers on 9/11, she was only a year old at the time, and she said every year this day is really hard for her. 

We must never forget the thousands of men and women who have sacrificed since, in the armed forces, to prevent another day like this from ever happening again. 

And we must never forget how the ‘American spirit’ shone through the tangled mess of concrete and steel in New York City, Washington D.C., and in a lonely field in Shankesville, PA. The tragedy that attempted to rip us apart was the very thing that brought us together.  

After the attacks on 9/11, we were all challenged by the sacrifice of men and women who instead of running from the Twin Towers, ran in to save others, there were heroes who stayed behind in the Pentagon so that others could flee to safety, and on flight 93, passengers refused to let terror win by storming the cockpit and crashing the plane into a Pennsylvania field.   

Their heroic acts must never be forgotten, in fact, they should fuel us to look for ways that we can serve one another, just as they did immediately following the attacks on 9/11, 12 years ago. Today is Patriot Day, a day of service and remembrance, a day that we are encouraged to serve one another. 

We cannot treat the call to ‘serve others’ with “inattention and disregard," for in doing so, we fail to honor the code by which Christ calls us to live by.  As Christians, we are called to live this way every day, because in doing so we honor Christ, who made the ultimate sacrifice to save us. 

In living our lives to ‘serve others,' we live in a way that never forgets what Christ did for us, that we could not do for ourselves.
