A Gastric Bypass Alternative

The only thing that is going to reverse the obesity and gluttony epidemic is some common sense and honesty and an end to political correctness. We cannot depend on public health officials to fix this because it is not in their financial interest to do so. Obesity means $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for them and the junk food industry. We need more people like MeMe standing up and telling the truth about the industry and the Americans who can't or won't stop digging themselves early graves with their knives, forks and spoons. They need to know the truth about nutrition and they need to know that their excuses are BS. Tough love!

The most the Basal Metabolic Rate can vary is in humans of the same age weight and gender is 35 calories per day. Human bodies cannot defy the immutable laws of physics.

The most weight a sedentary women can maintain on 2000 calories per day is 140 pounds.

These numbers represent a woman who sleeps 24 hour per day

Resting (basal) metabolic rate: 1344 calories per day
Typical daily activities: 604 calories per day (sleeping is an activity) Chemical processes occur when we sleep and they require energy/calories

Total calories burned: 1949 per day

If she were even slightly active she would not even able to maintain 135 pounds. If she were moderately active 130 pounds is all she could maintain and if she did serious workouts 110 pounds is all she could maintain on 2000 calories per day.

Your BMR is approximately your current weight X 10. If you want a more accurate here is a free metabolic calculator

If you eat at your BMR you will lose 1 pound per week per 100 pounds of body weight. That is IMO the most you can safely lose. Doctor may say other wise but again IMO many doctors are a menace who want to push junk like Medifast and weight loss surgery.

With the correct mind set and proper technique weight loss is not a chore. Marie Osmond is an example of that. Marie wen from fat and unhealthy to slender, health and sexy.

Beyond Malpractice: A Goldmine For Lawyers

A way to get more business. The biggest criminals with the deepest pockets are doctors and members of the medical industry. The medical industry is 20% of the US GDP and by 2020 it will be whopping 25%.

Nearly every medical office, hospital and drug company is awash with criminal activity that often results in the deaths and injury of Americans but since the rich in America are above the law rich criminals rarely even get arrested let alone prosecuted or convicted. In fact the largest CRIMINAL fines are against the medical industry but nobody get arrested let alone prosecuted.

There is a goldmine out there. Lawyers can potentially mine $100's of billions dollars from the massive criminal activity of the American medical industry. It is a fact that more than 1/3 and probably 1/2 of what patients pay for health care is waste and fraud and nearly every doctor, hospital, lab, clinic, device company a drug company is doing it. Even with the lower estimate of 1/3 that is $750 BILLION of theft per year which is more than the entire US defense budget. I'd rather see some of that money in the hands of you ambulance chasers than in the hands of the medical Mafia.

Here is an example of how the medical industry steals, kills and maims.

In 2009, Eli Lilly agreed to pay $1.4 Billion in criminal and civil penalties for such off-label promotion of Zyprexa and Pfizer agreed to pay $2.3 Billion for the illegal off-label promotion of Geodon and other drugs.  In 2010, Astra-Zeneca agreed to pay $520 million for the illegal off-label promotion of Seroquel for use in children, and Forest Laboratories agreed to pay $309 million for the illegal off-label promotion of the use of Lexapro and Celexa in children.  However, despite these large penalties by the drug companies, the practice has not stopped.  It is merely a cost of doing business to these pharmaceutical Goliaths and, in fact, caps their liability for these crimes.  Most importantly, these settlements have not stopped the practice of child psychiatrists and other prescribers giving these drugs to children and youth and Medicaid continuing to pay for these fraudulent claims.

There is a toxic environment in most medical practices. I know this because I used to make sales calls on them. That is why pharmaceutical salesmen ply these barracudas with food so even they won't get bitten. Since most doctors are snakes they hire snakes and the snakes they hire are underpaid backstabbing  brutal bitches who when they are not abusing patients are starting shit with co-workers. Some of them are too stupid to know what their bosses are up to but others will stab their boss in the back if they think they can profit from it. Sometimes it takes a crook to catch a crook.

Here is my suggestion to lawyers. Make more Americans familiar with qui tam whistle blower lawsuits. Have your industry send generic information to medical practices, hospitals, drug companies and medical device companies that let disgruntled workers know that they can make a fortune by ratting out their criminal bosses.

A campaign of doctor bashing

When the facts are known Americans will see that the American medical industry is far more sinister than even ISIS or the Nazis and here is why. Even most Nazis believed that what they did was right and ISIS and other Muslim groups believe what they are doing is serving God. The members of the medical industry are not so deluded. They know that they are disease exploiting mercenaries and whores. They know that they are the leading cause of death and injury in the world today. They are deny this holocaust even though they know it is real and that they are the cause. Show them no mercy. If God is a just God he won't. When judges and jury pools learn that the biggest criminals on the planet are doctors and their industry. Make it impossible for this industry to win a court case.

Dangerous and Deadly Doctors

(From NaturalNews) Everyone agrees the Sandy Hook shooting was a tragedy. Lots of people subsequently exploited the deaths of those children to push a political agenda of disarming Americans by claiming "guns kill people."

But compared to what? Swimming pools kill people. Horseback riding kills people. And yes, even childbirth kills people. (Does that mean we should criminalize getting pregnant?)

To make any sense of death statistics, we have to ask, "Compared to what?" Because if we compare deaths by firearms to other causes of death, the picture is very, very different from the doomsday fear mongering scenarios CNN and other gun control pushers have whipped up into a nationwide frenzy. In fact, as the following infographic shows, doctors kill 2,450% more Americans than all gun-related deaths combined.

Your doctor is FAR more likely to kill you than an armed criminal!

It's true: You are 64 times more likely to be killed by your doctor than by someone else wielding a gun. That's because 19,766 of the total 31,940 gun deaths in the USA (in the year 2011) were suicides. So the actual number of deaths from other people shooting you is only 12,174.

Doctors, comparatively, kill 783,936 people each year, which is 64 times higher than 12,174. Doctors shoot you not with bullets, but with vaccines, chemotherapy and pharmaceuticals... all of which turn out to be FAR more deadly than guns.

This is especially amazing, given that there are just under 700,000 doctors in America, while there are roughly about 80 million gun owners in America.

How do 700,000 doctors manage to kill 783,936 people each year (that's over one death per doctor), while 80 million gun owners kill only 31,940? Because owning a gun is orders of magnitude safer than "practicing" medicine!

Check out the following infographic, which can also be viewed in a higher resolution at:

As the infographic explains, you are over three times more likely to be killed by a drug side effect than a firearm.

On the firearms side of things, you are almost twice as likely to be killed by YOURSELF than by someone else using a gun. But even this number can't be blamed on guns themselves, because if people really want to commit suicide, they will find other ways to accomplish it (such as jumping off buildings or bridges).

Where is the call for "doctor control?"

Despite the statistical fact that you are overall 24.5 times more likely to be killed by your doctor than by a gun -- and it's actually far worse if you spend more time around doctors than you do gang members -- there is absolutely no call in the media for "doctor control."

There's zero talk about making medications safer, or reducing the number of people who are medicated every day in America.

There's no mention of the astonishing fact that surgical procedures do not need to be proven safe and effective before being tried on patients. Surgery in America is, in effect, a grand experiment often conducted with little or no scientific support.

There's no discussion of the fact that psychiatric drugs promote violent shootings as we've seen over and over again across America.

Nope, the entire focus is on how BAD guns are, while the government simultaneously promotes how GOOD vaccines are! ...and chemotherapy, surgery, pharmaceuticals and everything else that's killing us en masse.

Every U.S. hospital is another Sandy Hook

Hundreds of people are killed every single day across U.S. hospitals from pharmaceutical side effects alone. On top of that, hospitals are killing people with superbug infections, fouled up surgeries, and failed heart stents, among other deadly problems.

Sandy Hook was the tragedy the government wanted you to see. But they didn't want you to pay attention to all the deaths happening elsewhere -- in far greater numbers -- such as at hospitals and via pharmacies.

Because all those deaths overseen by doctors and pharmacists are making billions of dollars for the corrupt, criminally-run pharmaceutical industry and the for-profit, corporate-driven health care complex.

While Sandy Hook was mass murder, the U.S. health care system is practically a holocaust. In fact, the U.S. health care system has killed more people than Adolf Hitler -- by far!

Spread the word: If we want to save lives, the most important place to start is at the doctors and drug companies. They are dealers of death who have been granted obscene monopolies by the FDA and state medical boards. Until their stranglehold on U.S. health care is finally broken, millions more innocent Americans will die at the hands of doctors, surgeons and pharmacists.

Doctors Suck When It Comes to Weight Loss and Morals

Your Doctor is an Idiot. Especially if he’s one of these guys. Or Dr. Oz.

OK, that wasn’t nice.  Or even accurate.  But it drives me nuts when people say “My doctor said _______” regarding diet and weight loss advice.  Fun fact:  Some medical schools provide as little as 2 hours of nutrition training to students, the average being less than 24 hours. (National Institute of Health paper here)  Well, at least they do teach med students to frequently repeat the phrase “make healthy diet choices and get some exercise.”  It’d just be nice if they also taught them to admit that they don’t know exactly what that means.
These Doctors admit they don't really know anything about nutrition.Case in point – These two doctors (identical twins) had a little contest to compare two extreme diets and see which was better.  What did they learn?  That neither extremely low fat or extremely low carb are sustainable.  What did I learn?  That neither twin can read, because there is ample data already available telling us that eliminating any of the 3 essential macronutrients is a bad idea. But the guy that cut out carbohydrates lost 9 pounds in a month?  Sweet!  Breaking news (if 40 year old data is breaking news) – Yes, ketosis works, but what these guys apparently still don’t know is that most of his initial weight loss was water that will come back as soon as he eats a granola and a bagel for breakfast.  You see, body composition management 101 tells us that every gram of carbohydrate stored in your body holds onto 3 grams of water.  Thus, if the average person depletes their normally stored (ballpark) 500 grams of carbohydrates (which weighs 1.1 pounds), you’ll lose not only that weight but also eliminate the 1500 grams (3.3 pounds) of water that goes with it.  That’s how I can literally pack on 6-8 pounds overnight if I have a carb-fest, and lose it over a few days with some hard work and discipline.  The point is these guys don’t have the most basic understanding of managing weight/body composition.  Perhaps worse, they don’t seems to be aware of the importance of differentiating between losing weight strictly watching numbers on the scale and losing fat while preserving muscle tissue and a strong skeleton. (let alone how to do that).
Why did I have to pick on Dr. Oz in the title?  Because my impression is that he is more interested in his ratings/popularity than in sharing the most completely accurate information, and too many people believe everything he says.  I recall his reaction/reporting on a one day diet experiment he did.  One frikkin day.  That’s not enough time to gather accurate data and his reported symptoms were unfairly attributed to the diet (which was a stupid way to try the diet anyway). He made all sorts of dramatic claims about the diet’s drawbacks, and I have to wholeheartedly disagree with the dietary advice he did give –  I’ll have to come back to that.  The parts of his TV show that I watched were like a bunch of mini-infomercials, where he ran from table to table showing products and telling us whatever the manufacturer claimed on the label.  That’s not even bad science – that’s just being a sellout.
I do want apologize here for calling names…none of these guys nor your doctor are really idiots.  Actually they are GANGSTERS. I completely respect their training and skill in their specialties, I only wanted to illustrate that nutrition is not it.  One of the twins even admits:“He realized that while he and Chris were both doctors, they really didn’t know that much about nutrition and diet.”
So please take away from this is that your doctor is not the best source of diet/nutrition/fitness advice.  Learn from people that manage their bodies for a living or lifestyle.  Better yet, start with their advice but study how everything works for yourself.

If Weight Loss Surgery Doesn't Kill You A Hospital Infection Will

Image result for healthcare acquired infections

American hospitals are filthy dirty places run by greedy criminals. Consider the following.

Keep in mind:

  • We have the knowledge to prevent hospital infection deaths.
  • We don't have to wait for a scientific breakthrough. Yet greedy hospitals have failed to act.
  • The situation is growing more dangerous because, increasingly, hospital infections cannot be cured with commonly-used antibiotics.
Sometimes connecting the dots reveals a grim picture. Several new reports about hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) show that the danger is increasing rapidly, and that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) isn’t leveling with the public about it.

The CDC falsely claims that 1.7 million people contract infections in U.S. hospitals each year. In fact, the truth is several times that number. The proof is in the data. One of the fastest growing infections is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a superbug that doesn’t respond to most antibiotics. In 1993, there were fewer than 2,000 MRSA infections in U.S. hospitals. By 2005, the figure had shot up to 368,000 according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). By June, 2007, 2.4 percent of all patients had MRSA infections, according to the largest study of its kind, which was published in the 

American Journal of Infection Control. That would mean 880,000 victims a year.
That’s from one superbug. Imagine the number of infections from bacteria of all kinds, including such killers as vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) and Clostridium difficile. Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, director of the CDC, recently told Congress that MRSA accounts for only 8 percent of HAIs. That 8 percent figure was confirmed in a study by Emory University researchers on April 6.

These new facts discredit the CDC’s official 1.7 million estimate. CDC spokesperson Nicole Coffin admits “the number isn’t perfect.” In fact, it is an irresponsible guesstimate based on 2002 data. The CDC researchers who came up with it complained that not having actual data “complicated the problem.”
Numbers matter. Health conditions that affect the largest number of people should command more research dollars and public attention.

The problem doesn’t end there. The CDC has resisted calling on hospitals to implement the key change needed to stop some infections: MRSA screening. A study in the March issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine shows that MRSA infections can be prevented by testing incoming patients for the germ and taking precautions on patients who test positive. The test is a noninvasive skin or nasal swab. Researchers at Evanston Northwestern Healthcare System, a group of three hospitals near Chicago, reduced MRSA infections 70 percent over two years. “If it works in these three different hospitals, it will work anywhere,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Lance Peterson, an epidemiologist.

That’s fortunate, because the problem is everywhere. The June 2007 survey found that MRSA is “endemic in virtually all U.S. healthcare facilities.” Screening is necessary because patients who unknowingly carry MRSA bacteria on their body shed it in particles on wheelchairs, blood pressure cuffs, virtually every surface. These patients don’t realize they have the germ, because it doesn’t make them sick until it gets inside their body, usually via a surgical incision, a catheter, or a ventilator for breathing. With screening, hospitals can identify the MRSA-positive patients, isolate them, use separate equipment, and insist on gowns and gloves when treating them. Screening is common in several European countries that have almost eradicated MRSA, and some 50 studies show that it works in the U.S. too.

Delay can defeat the purposes of screening. A study released in March in the Journal of the American Medical Association grabbed headlines when it purported to prove that screening is ineffective. But the study, conducted at a hospital in Geneva, Switzerland, was flawed. Many patients did not receive their test results until their hospital results were half over, and 41 percent of MRSA positive patients had already had their surgeries. The excessive delays allowed the germ to spread.

Because the evidence is compelling that screening works, Congress and seven state legislatures are considering making screening mandatory. Illinois, New Jersey and Pennsylvania acted in 2007. Why is legislation needed? Because the CDC, which is responsible for providing guidelines for hospitals on how to prevent infections, has failed to recommend that all hospitals screen patients. The CDC’s lax guidelines give hospitals an excuse to do too little.

It is common for government regulators to become soft on the industry they are supposed to regulate. A coziness develops. Federal Aviation Administration inspectors failed to insist on timely electrical systems inspections, according to news reports. The same may be true at the CDC, where government administrators spend too much time listening to hospital executives and not enough time with grieving families.
