Nutrition 101 - Review ..... Part 2

Saturday, September 08, 2012

OK, so much for the week or two between postings. I have been extremely busy and returned to school part time. This time I am taking classes in Human Services, which will make me more effective with an upcoming ministry (Celebrate Recovery) that my wife and I will be facilitating. Sometimes it is absolutely amazing how God can work in our life. Anyway, I promised the review and it is time to deliver.

One of things the professor had stressed in our class was to know our source and to research the interests of the information source. There are so many sites that have the latest cures, proprietary formulas, new equipment with a different spin, and much more to say the least. In one of my research endeavors I came across the miracles of cayenne. Of course this was an opportunity to test the tracing of the interests, which by the way this site passed with flying colors. My previous posting of the Cayenne Pepper experiment mentioned this in detail. Excuse the momentary digress. In other words, which click on the site will lead me to the point of a request for a credit card number. Try it yourself sometime! When you are surfing around the Spark and lead to another site that has the next greatest thing since sliced bread, see how long it will take until the request for plastic takes place.

As a person that had herniated discs seven years ago, I can tell you that when you are in enough pain you will drink snake oil for relief. I will not bore you with the details, other than to tell you that the seven year hiatus from the debilitating pain was greatly appreciated and a huge blessing. When the recent exacerbation occurred, I was again scurrying for a cure or relief. Fortunately, with God's Grace, I escaped the trials and tribulations associated with my back. However, I was researching and was lead to this FREE download of a cure for back pain in seven days. As I am reading the FREE book and approaching the end of the book, it is quickly revealed to me where the author's interest really were. Fortunately, I can state that the read was informative and I extrapolated enough facts to use them in my back pain prevention arsenal.

What I learned from the professor about researching health cures and claims, was valuable to say the least. While many do not want to rely on Government sites for information, you cannot discount the fact that this source will have the greatest amount of validated information on it. Furthermore, the interest is not in the plastic card with 16 digits on it; it is for you tap a repository of information that may fulfill your health needs. Be on the lookout for terms like proprietary formula, limited time, just released, hidden secrets, and the like. They are nothing more than a insidious snare designed to get you to release your hard earned money.

Part 3 - Tools for Nutrition - I will try to get it done in less than a month this time. I did say try.

Progress Report: Since the last posting, my percentage of body fat has decreased from 17.4% to 16.6%. That equates to one more pound of fat eliminated. At this rate, I should be able to report close to 15.8% next month. Stay away from the chips!!! Stay far away from the chips!!!
