-Is Oatmeal Heart Healthy?  no

-Yesterday, I discussed the difference between serum LDL and LDL-P (the LDL particle count) and its size.  Checkout this great discussion of what’s happening to you when LDL particle count gets high and LDL size gets small and dense.

Checkout this list of “Heart Healthy” cereals.  (Jay, I think Frankenberries is still on there).  Keep perspective on what causes high LDL particle count with a small/dense size while reading this.  

Ever heard of Orthorexia?  Checkout OPT’s thoughts on this.  Post your own. 

Nicole and I are very proud to announce the opening of the newest CrossFit gym in the local area:  CrossFitOP (CrossFit Oyster Point), owned and operated by Jim and Diane Koske.  
We are proud to have introduced Jim and Di to CrossFit to have sparked their love of coaching and to have inspired them to start their own box.  It’s tough for us to see them go, but it is extremely valuable to the CrossFit community to have another gym in the local area; it will only strengthen and increase the size of the community.  
Current CFHR CrossFit Athletes are invited to their inagural WOD this Monday night at 5:30pm.  Details are below in this message from Jim and Di.:
