Allen kicks his cholesterol panel in the butt!

Take a look at what Wheat Belly Blog reader Allen posted about his cholesterol testing:

Just wanted to report that I had my first blood test since starting Wheat Belly back in July, 2012. I just got a note from my company doc:

Today’s quiz will help you figure out how you personally relate to pleasure. Do you rock it full time, or is it just a passing thought for you?
