Omega Overdose

Omega Overdose

According to Raymond Francis in Never Be Fat Again, an estimated 95 percent of Americans are deficient in omega-3 fats: “The deficiency has led to an epidemic of suboptimal and deteriorating health, including diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis and diabetes.” On the other hand, we’re overdosing on omega-6 fats. Part of the problem is the change in how cattle are fed—with a grain-based diet instead of grass. Cattle that eat grass have an omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of approximately 3-to-1. Grain-fed cattle have ratios of 20-to-1 and higher. Grass-fed cattle also have less bodyfat and much less saturated fat. [For more on grass-fed beef, visit www.GrasslandBeef.com.]

Be the Best You Can Be

Be the Best You Can Be 

How often do we look at a certain person’s physique, consider it the ideal and decide that it’s exactly what we want to look like? When I first started reading the magazines in late 1987, I was determined to look just like Rich Gaspari, the Dragonslayer who breathed fire down Lee Haney’s neck over much of Haney’s eight-year reign as Mr. Olympia. Eventually I realized it wasn’t in the cards.

Muscle-Training Program 50

Although we’ve loosened our diets and reduced our training volume since our photo shoot, we’ve remained in good shape. Sure, the abs are a little blurry, but we’re both amazed at how our vascularity has remained and our bodyfat levels have stayed low despite cookies and ice cream. Steve’s theory is that drop sets have played a part.

Attraction Reaction

It’s no secret that a lot of men lust for women who have hourglass figures. You know, the large-breasted, small-waisted types who usually have names like Barbie. Why? It appears that nature may have a hand in that reaction because those attributes signal the highest reproductive potential. In other words, it’s biology

In one study women who had narrow waists and large breasts had an average of 26 percent higher levels of 17-b-estradiol, the female reproductive hormone. A woman’s waist-to-hip ratio also has a strong correlation to her levels of progesterone, another female hormone.
