True Extreme Makeover, Part 1
June 14, 2016
The Biggest Loser show enjoyed astounding popularity a decade ago. But recently, a well-publicized study revealed that almost all the contestants regained their lost weight and more. Many are plagued with a “stuck” metabolism that resists weight loss no matter how stringently they diet or how hard they exercise. The scientific conclusion is that dramatic weight-loss is nearly impossible to maintain due to alterations in leptin metabolism. Self-transformation expert Kat James weighs in with an alternative interpretation: She believes that the Biggest Loser paradigm was doomed to failure from the start because it invoked the wrong diet (ultra-low calorie and low-fat) and extremes of exercise, which are ineffective and unsustainable. Kat herself is a shining example of self-transformation because she successfully employed a leptin-sensitization program to overcome extreme binging and fatty liver, in the process dropping ten dress sizes over several years. Kat plumbs the science of leptin and describes how carb restriction and consumption of healthy dietary fat allow a reset of metabolism and appetite. Some of the benefits come from helpful alterations to the microbiome, the gut bacteria that mediate hormonal balance. Kat suspects that the Biggest Loser study was to some extent “planted” by BigPharma and the gastric bypass industries to make dieting seem futile and to prompt overweight persons to shift to reliance on medical or surgical “fixes” for obesity. With her “Total Transformation” program, significant and permanent weight loss is attainable, with freedom from cravings and deprivation, even without incessant exercise. Click HERE for part 2.

Ideal Medical Care, Part 1
June 9, 2016
Our flawed medical system may be undermined by doctor dissatisfaction, which is reaching unprecedented levels. Physician suicide is a taboo subject that often goes under-reported. Dr. Pamela Wible of IdealMedicalCare.org and author of "Physician Suicide Letters Answered" calls out the pressures to which medical professionals are routinely subjected: Impossible hours, abusive superiors, hazing rituals, regimentation, humiliation, machismo and the ever-present imperative to seem perfect and unperturbable. The results are physician burnout, patient abuse, avoidable mistakes, and rote medical care. Dr. Wible envisions Ideal Medical Care in which doctors in training are nurtured humanely and offered opportunities for personal expression and growth. Some MDs are striving to create their own ideal medical clinics which better address patients’ needs than our current assembly line care system. Other student doctors are dropping out of conventional training programs and designing their own curriculum, customized to their personal interests and career goals. Click HERE for part 2.
