How to Increase Your Triglyceride
Level and Put Your Health at Risk
Stan has been focusing on work,
work and more work. Doing so has left him out of the gym and
eating for convenience rather than health. This has caused him
to take in more calories than he uses. A high triglyceride level
(usually anything over 200 mg/dL) is simply the result of an
energy imbalance within your body. Rather than you utilizing
fat and glucose (sugar) to "run on a treadmill," or
"chase your wife around the bedroom," these molecules
run amuck in the blood.
Since metabolism likes to be
as tidy as possible, it packages the unused fat and sugar fuel
into a storage molecule known as a triglyceride. Once merged,
they are stuffed into your belly (adipose tissue), your muscles
(makes muscles look soft rather than hard and shredded) and even
your liver (fatty liver) as storage.
How to Lower Your Triglyceride
Level with a Natural Enemy
Triglycerides natural enemy
is a hormone known as glucagon. It's the Loch Ness Monster of
hormones because it's rarely seen. High triglyceride levels are
usually accompanied with high insulin (this is the "Oh,
please don't take your shirt off hormone"). Insulin stores
fat while smothering glucagon production. Bring it back to the
surface (by increasing your hormone intelligence), and glucagon
will smash triglycerides, as well as all the medical complications
that accompany them.
3 Steps to Lowering Your
Step 1: Space your meals out by five hours. This will
help insulin simmer down so that your body can produce glucagon.
Make sure your meals consist mostly of purified water along with
healthy fats like seeds, nuts, grass fed beef, real butter, cod
liver oil and avocados.
Step 2: Start supplementing with a teaspoon of psyllium
husk and about 300mg of alpha-lipoic acid daily. This will slow
the absorption of calories and cause your body to speed up sugar
metabolism for the overall effect of reversing an energy imbalance.
Step 3: Exercise. Either chase your spouse around the
bedroom more often, or make it a habit to do my 16-minute total

Sticking to the plan, Stan's
triglyceride levels dropped from 556 to 172 mg/dL in a matter
of 43 days! Side effects included 8 lbs of fat loss (from 173
to 165lbs), a gain in 5 lbs of muscle mass and skyrocketing energy.
His wife started looking at him more often too. I suspect there
are a few more welcome side effects to come, like increased longevity,
which translates into more time with family and friends as well
as enjoying an exotic vacation
