Christie's Peculiar Story
If You've Tried To Lower Cholesterol
On Your Own and It Didn't Work,
You Might Want To Hear This
Ohio Woman's Story…
Christie knew all about the dangers of high cholesterol. That's why she swapped out hamburgers with turkey burgers a long time ago.
She ate fish about once a week. Baked fish at that. Salmon several times a month.
Lots of chicken. Boy, did she eat a lot of chicken. Either baked or broiled. She very rarely had anything fried.
Many days she'd go without meat altogether.
Lots of salads with low-fat dressing. A good portion of her grocery cart was filled with low-fat, reduced-fat, or no-fat foods.
Gym membership? Check. (And she used it too.)
Sure, she'd tell you she wanted to lose about 8-10 pounds. (What women doesn't, right?) But she looked good.
Eggs? Very rarely. She knew about the dangers of eating too much cholesterol.
So when Christie had some routine blood work done, she didn't give a second thought about her cholesterol levels…
…until she got the results.
Her total cholesterol number? Way over 200. In the "danger zone". And her ratios were out-of-balance to boot.
Christie cried a lot of tears that day.
Said it was the first time she "felt old".
Her husband was frustrated. Confused. "How could this happen?", he thought. Especially when she had been so good with her diet. Much better than him. Even he'd tell you that.
You see, Christie's husband didn't always eat the fish she baked. He prefers red meat.
And while he does enjoy a good turkey burger, he doesn't eat a lot of salads.
And get this…
He ate more fat than Christie. A lot more. Not even close.
Oh, and here's the KICKER…
His cholesterol numbers were sparkling. He was told his cholesterol levels were "close to perfect".
A genetics difference wasn't the culprit, since high cholesterol didn't run in her family and Christie's cholesterol was just fine only a few years earlier.
How do I know all these details from Christie's story?
Well, Christie in the story is my best friend and adorable wife. The husband in the story … yep, that'd be me.
What did I do after Christie got the bad news? I started asking questions and doing research. Lots of research.
Want to know what I discovered?
First off, while our diets had a lot in common … there were quite a few small differences. But those differences made a huge impact.
Secondly, I learned pretty quick that a good deal of the typical cholesterol advice out there is nothing more than outdated theory. Honestly, I couldn't believe how much of the heart-healthy advice out there is a crock.
I don't think they're giving us bad advice on PURPOSE. (At least I HOPE not!) But either way – it's still BAD advice.
Actually, let me rephrase that.
Yes, some of it is flat-out bad advice. There's just no way to sugarcoat that fact.
But what I've discovered is that a good deal of the cholesterol-lowering advice out there today … especially on the internet (and yes, even some of the mega-popular health sites we all know about) … are simply offering up half-truths that are often causing more harm than good.
Here's just one example of what I mean when it comes to half-truths…
I'm guessing there's somewhere around a ZILLION articles online that preach the importance of reducing your fat intake to lower cholesterol and reduce your heart risk.
But eliminating ALL fat is a horrible idea. Deadly in fact.
Yes, you want to reduce bad, harmful fats. You should have a goal to completely eliminate trans fats from your diet altogether. But getting rid of trans fats is far different from reducing any and all fat intake.
So what happens when we hear this same (bad) advice over and over again?
We as consumers go out and fill our shopping carts with the "low fat", "reduced fat", and "no fat" versions of our favorite foods and we THINK we're doing something healthy.
In fact, if you've made a conscious effort to reduce your fat intake and have felt physically groggy and mentally foggy since doing so … my friend, that's not a coincidence!
And I'm betting it didn't do squat for your cholesterol either, am I right?
So back to the notion of half-truths…
If you've tried lowering cholesterol on your own by changing your diet … and haven't had any luck … then you've probably been a victim of several of these lies or half-truths.
These lies and half-truths spread like wildfire on the internet because so much of what is written and posted online is simply regurgitated material from another site.
And if you continue to believe all the websites who won't give you all the details you need (because they did lazy or no real research on the subject) … well, be prepared to be disappointed when it doesn't work out like they claim.
Because it won't.
Want some more examples of lies and half-truths that are causing confusion and keeping people who are trying really hard to fail?
Ask yourself the following questions. Do these make sense to you or not?…
How can one person snack on nuts to lower their cholesterol, while another person eats nuts and sees no results at all … or even a slight increase in cholesterol levels?
How does one person have better results eating 100% beef hamburgers compared to someone else who eats turkey burgers?
How can one person drink chocolate shakes to boost HDL and improve their ratios overall cholesterol profile, while another person drinks chocolate shakes and raises LDL, which worsens their ratios?
How can a whole wheat bagel with fresh organic orange juice be worse for one person than bacon and eggs with coffee for someone else?
And how in the world can one person reduce their fat intake by 1/3 to 1/2 and have more harmful cholesterol levels, while another person raises their fat intake and sees improved cholesterol numbers across the board?
And no, the real life answer to these questions has nothing (repeat nothing) to do with winning or losing the "genetics lottery".
Confused yet? Welcome to the world of chaos when we start believing and acting on a pile of half-truths and lies.
You are likely doomed to fail from the start … even if you try as hard as you can … because you simply don't have the whole picture revealed to you yet.
Believe it or not, it'll all make sense and you'll have crystal clear clarity on what you can and can't do once you see what's inside Crunch Cholesterol.
Many have told me that once they understood what does and doesn't cause a cholesterol problem, they couldn't believe how simple and easy it was to balance and normalize their cholesterol levels.
Wouldn't it be great for you to solve your cholesterol puzzle in time to stave off a heart attack or stroke?
What most people like about the Crunch Cholesterol plan is that it's simple and easy. There's no strict regimen to follow.
In fact, I'd be quite surprised if you didn't see a double-digit improvement if all you did was implement a handful of tips from the book. (What may help you out the most is simply avoiding so many of the common mistakes.)
And if you're a little stubborn about making any changes with your diet, well … I wish I could change your mind … but hey, it's your call. I respect that. But…
I still want you to do something to avoid using those dangerous cholesterol drugs, okay?
So you might want to take a minute to see this video explaining how a doctor famously helped his parents end their cholesterol nightmare with a few key nutrients. Pretty wild stuff.
His formula is great for other heart risk factors like C-reactive protein and homocysteine too – not just cholesterol. (Proving that he "gets it".) It's worth a look.
All the best…
