My own numbers on my customized, rigorously adhered to, low-carb but LOTS of cheese, pork, chicken and burger diet. Click to EXPAND. Use link above for the original post that talks about these numbers.


I have said this very same thing before and I will say it again.

It is NOT the fats you have to cut out but the carbs.

This study just attests what some of us have known, from hands on experience, for years.

Think of this as a public service post for those that are struggling to get their cholesterol under control.

I have now been on a low-carb diet for 20 months.

My weight has stabilized and I am ‘OK’ with that.

I stress, it is ‘low carb’, not ‘no carb’.
There is no such thing as a ‘no carb’ diet.
Carbs are everywhere and you need SOME carbs.

I have done low-carb before so this is not new to me.

My advice: low-carb, eat as much cheese, pork, hot dogs, kielbasa, chicken and nuts as you want.
Don’t worry about the carbs in fruit. Eat what you want.
A glass of diluted red is essential as is sex —
and remember
an “O”-a-day is far better than an apple a day
at keeping the doctor away’.

(Not sure about bacon. I no longer eat bacon.
To me bacon does seem to be pushing it.
I also limit the eggs I eat, though I probably don’t have to)

Oh, yes. A bit of exercise is good too.

Plus, do NOT fast for more than one day at a time!

I am not sure IF anybody has done any research on this as yet.
But, I think low-carb diets minimize, if not eliminate,
the ‘bad breath’ that some get — emanating from their
digestive tract.

A few days ago Deanna came home with a very fancy, glossy 4-page brochure that boasted ‘The New Hampshire Health Insurance Marketplace’. I was slightly taken back, though I had heard TV and radio ads for them. The last I looked, and it was just over a month ago, New Hampshire was still using Obama’s fraud-riddled ‘healthcare.gov‘ as the State Health EXCHANGE.

Do NOT be confused, do NOT be fooled. IF you are looking for ‘Affordable Healthcare Act’ (ACA) provided health insurance in N.H. you still need, alas, to use ‘healthcare.gov’. That is the only way to get the NOW THREATENED premium reducing tax credits. Got that?

‘Coveringnewhampshire’ is nothing but a front for the totally useless, rapacious, money-grabbing, ‘New Hampshire Health Plan‘ — the OLD plan that those of us who had pre-existing conditions HAD to use.

I, alas, had insurance from the despicable  ‘New Hampshire Health Plan‘ for nearly 5 years. They were useless. During that time they did NOT pay a single bill. They wouldn’t even pay for my flu shot though they claim that it is covered — OUTSIDE of deductible. You do not, thanks to ACS, need them. Other insurance companies can’t turn you down for pre-existing. So, PLEASE be careful. Do not get conned. OK?

Healthcare.gov still sucks, BUT if you need health insurance you should start there. OK?

It has transpired!

Just as I thought it would because even I could see that
the ACA wording was specific that subsidies had to come
from State run Healthcare Exchanges.

N.H. did not, and does NOT, have a State Run Exchange.

So we are one of the 35 States impacted.

I just spoke with the N. H. Dept. of Insurance. Suffice to say they are in shock.

But, pending appeal. But, can’t see how the Supreme Court can overrule this.
Wording is crystal clear.

I am actually HAPPY. I am glad.

Though I fought hard for Obamacare I came to realize, through my own painful experience, that Obamacare is a TOTAL FRAUD.

Even I, though I benefit from it, cannot condone such FRAUD. This is immoral.

I want Obamacare to be scrapped.

I want Obama to be impeached.

IF the Supreme Court sides with Lower Court YOU WILL RECEIVE a Tax Bill for the subsidies you received. There is NO immunity.


YOU Do Realize That We May LOSE Obamacare, i.e. Affordable Care Act (ACA), Healthcare Subsidies In New Hampshire … RIGHT?

Given that I am an avowed news junkie I have known about this for months — maybe ever since the lawsuit was filed.

I even understand what is at the nub of this case. It is all about the wording. The Affordable Care Act, in its definitely finite wisdom, states, categorically that subsidies MAY be provided “through an Exchange established by the State”. That is the key — “an Exchange established by the State”. It was written and passed at a time when the belief was that most states would implement their OWN Healthcare Exchanges. Well that didn’t happen — certainly NOT in N.H.

So that is the deal. Kind of interesting there is a parallel to the infamous Massachusetts UPSKIRTING ruling in March of this year. That too was all about the exact wording of the law.

I am so, so disgusted with all of Obamacare and the lying, cheating Obama that I am HOPING that the subsidies are repealed!

Yes, I want Obamacare to be scuttled. It is a fraud. Of that I no longer have any doubt.

What has AMAZED me this last week is the number of ‘influential’ and ‘powerful’ folks in New Hampshire, some in the political arena others in State government, that have NOT HEARD about this lawsuit!

To me that is inconceivable! How could one be that blinkered and out-of-touch when there is Google News? Well, it is kind of funny, I have been educating folks in Concord about this lawsuit the last few days of the week. Some of them, quite rightly, are stunned.

But I am HOPING that the subsidies are abolished because that will be the end to Obamacare.

We could then go after Obama and hopefully impeach him.

I found something else also. The latest Obamacare Contractor, with a $1.25 BILLION contract, who is screwing up mightily, i.e., claiming that despite getting $1.25 BILLION they can’t process the necessary documents per their contract — NOT A U.S. company. Yes, another foreign contractor! I have said it before. All makes sense. Give the money to foreign companies because the U.S. can’t really go after them for fraud. Some of that foreign money will end up with Obama and his family.


I Again Turn To Our Excellent Senator, Jeanne Shaheen, For Help With Obamacare, i.e. Affordable Care Act (ACA), Document Resubmit Fraud.

I for good reason have a lot of faith and trust in our Senator Jeanne Shaheen. She is a wonderful advocate and person. [Yes, I have met her and I have campaigned for her.]

Her office has helpe us, majorly, twice — most recently in making sure Anthem got me an insurance card after I finally managed to sign up with them in December of last year.

I just contacted her office again about the harassment that I and 1,999,999 others are experiencing because we had the misfortune of getting healthcare insurance from bloody Obamacare. I really have had it. I will NOT get my insurance through that fraudulent system again. I will pay ‘full price’ and get my own insurance outside of healthcare.gov. Yes, I am all in favor of Republicans trying to repeal Obamacare! That is how much I now hate this fraud.

Anyway, I contacted Senator Shaheen, my friends at the N.H. Dept. of Insurance and sent an e-mail BLASTING a few local democrats seeking office in November! I am not a ‘pretty sight’ when I am mad — but I only get mad, max., twice a year. When you see the steam coming out of the ears, as is the case now, it is best to seek cover. I really would like to see Obama impeached.

I feel bad for good people like Senator Jeanne Shaheen. She and other decent folks will end up paying the price for Obama’s duplicity. I am sorry Mrs. Shaheen.

On December 28, 2013 after 9 (yes, NINE) applications, 26 phone calls to the Call Center and over 14 hours on the phone or online I finally got Healthcare.gov approval on December 19, 2013.

It is all documented here in all of its ugly detail.

Then it took me 6 weeks, with help from various people, to finally get my Anthem Insurance card and I was all set — or so I thought. Again, it is all documented here.

For the last 4 months I keep on getting letters and e-mails asking me to resubmit my already submitted documents. I did once, way back like in May. Again getting another spate of e-mails.

It won’t let me UPLOAD them online! Healthcare.gov remains SCREWED.

This article has it spot on. This is just plain harassment.
The scanners don’t work!

So the 4 counties that will initially benefit are those that SHARE a border with Maine. I live in Belknap. We don’t adjoin Maine, BUT some of us are as CLOSE to Maine aa those in the 4 LUCKY counties.


This is a good start, and needs to be soundly applauded,
BUT it doesn’t help me.

I understand the initial reasoning — just the counties that border Maine.

Yes, of course, a Maine health plan will not be much cop for those in Cheshire or Sullivan.

But what about US in Belknap. I can get to Maine pretty easily and quickly and do so often.

That they are talking about extending the plan is good and promising.

P.S., Healthcare.gov (Obamacare) website is STILL having issues. It continues to HARASS me though I am all processed. Learned something interesting last week from their CALL CENTER. In December they secretly WAIVED verification of ALL documentation in the rush to get us signed up! I wonder if the Republicans in Congress know of that. If not one of you should tell them.

The Miracle Of A Low-Carb (High Fat) Diet In Reducing Cholesterol!

Think of this as a public service post for those that are struggling to get their cholesterol under control.

I try to explain to people that the secret of reducing your cholesterol counts is to CUT BACK on CARBS
and folks just don’t get it.

I know so many people who minimize the amount of cheese and red meat they eat,
saying that they have to do it to reduce their cholesterol,
and then pig out on carbs.

Though I am facetious about it and make jokes about it
(mainly to make folks feel better because they like to
think of others worse off than them)
I have only had a above 200 cholesterol count
for 9 months of my life and that was in 1989.
I brought my count down from 214 to 17x
just by cutting out milk and cheese
and living on hummus and tuna.
(And for the record it was damn hard to find hummus
in California in those days!)

I also don’t take handfuls of Liptor (as I claim).
I take 10mg pill a day, but have so
since 1998.


Here is the real story of my counts.

Click to EXPAND.

Click to EXPAND.


This is the 2nd time in my life that I have been on a strict low-carb diet.

The first time was in 2004, just a year after we got married. Deanna said I had got too fat and insisted that I had to go on a low-carb.

I had heard of low-carb. Somebody that I had worked with closely, in NYC, was put on one a few years earlier. I had claimed I could never do it because I love bread, rice, pies, chocolates, cakes …

But, Deanna said low-carb and given that we were still ‘newly married’ I didn’t want her denying me anything.

She told me what to do. I did. Weight started falling off. I even had bad breath for a couple of weeks, due to ketosis, the ONLY time in my life, THANK GOD, that I ever had bad breath — because I hate bad breath and people with it. One of my many foibles. I was so impressed I started reading up on Atkin.

I became a great Atkin devotee. Still am.

I was on that 2004 low-carb diet for about 2 to 3 years. Lost maybe 15 pounds. I was down to about 165 — roughly the weight I was when we got married.

Don’t remember how or why I stopped the low-carb.

My blood work was at its best when I was on low-carb.

So this is deja vu all over again. This time around I am more liberal with the low-carb. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be NO-CARB.

But NO bread, NO rice, No pasta, NO pies, NO chocolate, NO bagels, NO muffins, NO pancakes, NO cereal for 15 months.

I eat one packet of hot oat meal each day with LOTS of raisins. Stomach needs that.

Yes, I have 1/2 glass of diluted red wine a day. That is medicinal.

I eat a fair amount of fruit — mainly cantaloupe, grapes, raisins, prunes, strawberries and bananas. No canned fruit.

But, I eat cheese, ham, hot dogs, chicken, pork and BEEF with abandon.

I knew my cholesterol would be OK!

That is the miracle.

Yes, the ‘Heartbleed’ exploit is real and no doubt they used this ‘shareware’ software.

Second time since October 1. They reset all logins the first weekend.
