I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Handling Cholesterol the Natural Way

With the right foods, enough exercise, and weight loss, you may avoid the need for cholesterol-lowering medications.

As nasty a reputation as it has, cholesterol is actually needed by your body. It helps create new cells, transmit nerves, and produce hormones. But don’t go grab a cholesterol-laden burger just yet. Because your liver produces all the cholesterol you need? So when you add cholesterol to your body by eating a diet high in cholesterol, you’re getting more than you need. This extra cholesterol sticks to your artery walls and causes them to harden, which puts your body at risk for heart disease and stroke.

Though you could consume all cholesterol in your path and trust your fate to cholesterol-lowering medication, there is a better way to live life. With the right diet, weight management, and plenty of exercise, you can actually keep your cholesterol under control without the pharmacy.

What Goes In

A diet high in saturated fats, trans fats, simple sugars, and cholesterol from animal-based foods will instantly raise your cholesterol levels. Eat a breakfast of bacon, sausage, and eggs cooked in butter; a lunch made of processed, packaged simple sugars; and a big steak dinner with an ice cream sundae for dessert, and you may as well kiss your cholesterol levels goodbye, because they’re going to skyrocket.

However, lowering cholesterol doesn’t just mean avoiding certain foods. It also means eating more heart-healthy foods: healthy fats, fatty fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber-rich foods, and nuts are a good start. A diet combining these foods may work just as well as medication, but without the expense and negative side effects.

You should also substitute saturated fats, butter, lard, and vegetable oil with healthy fats such as olive oil or canola oil. Rather than beef or pork every night for dinner, eat fish two to three nights a week. And instead of processed snack foods eat high-fiber options such as fruits, veggies, and whole grains. You can also snack on almonds, walnuts, and other nuts to cut your cholesterol.

Of course, you shouldn’t forget about beverages. Green tea contains compounds that work to lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Since this is the bad kind of cholesterol, this is a good thing. Additionally, drinking alcohol in moderation has been shown to raise your good cholesterol—high-density lipoprotein (HDL)—a bit. Just be careful. Drink more than one (women) or two (men) drinks a day, and you’ll wind up negating any potential health benefit.

Moving and Sweating

Besides diet, exercise is the second most effective way to reduce cholesterol without medication. Exercise helps you lose weight and decrease your LDL, while increasing the production of enzymes that remove LDL from the blood. Getting up and about also raises your HDL lessens the chance that cholesterol will be able to clog your arteries.

When it comes to controlling cholesterol, vigorous exercise is better than moderate exercise, though moderate exercise is better than none. Aim to get at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.

Losing Lbs.

The final part in managing cholesterol on your own is maintaining a healthy weight. Being overweight increases your cholesterol levels. This may be because those who are overweight tend to eat foods high in cholesterol and saturated fat. Obesity may also be related to high cholesterol, since many obese people don’t get enough exercise. Don’t let this be you!

If you’re genetically predisposed to high cholesterol or if you have a medical condition that raises cholesterol, medication may be necessary. But it may not. Work with your physician to ensure you take the best steps for a healthy today and tomorrow.
