Want to ‘Swiftly alter key blood proteins’? Here is how to do that…

Eat at night and sleep by day

What is cool (sarcasm) is that it only takes one cycle of this unnatural pattern to alter the blood proteins.

The Juice Lady: Not Just a Pretty Face

Here is a great example of one of her Posts. It is timely, well done and for almost every one, safe. (Some people are just too sick for the cure – and a juice fast would be too extreme… so talk with your doc if you think that might be you!)

I have Blogged before on juicing (which I do not favor) verses blending (which I do favor) and all of the reasons why. Use the search box to find all related Posts. Start with ‘green drinks’:-)

Two evidence-based healthy eating patterns: More Research; not News

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/893184?src=wnl_mdplsnews_180302_mscpedit_wir&uac=254030MJ&impID=1572061&faf=1

‘Participants received individual, in-person counseling from nutritionists on how to adhere to each of the two evidence-based healthy eating patterns. The vegetarian diet excluded meat and fish but included dairy and eggs.’ (emphasis mine)

‘This was the first “intervention study that follows the principles of evidence-based medicine, in a general population at low risk of cardiovascular disease, that compared these two beneficial diets,” Sofi told theheart.org | Medscape Cardiology.’

A healthy diet should be “nutrient dense; rich in vegetables and fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts; low in refined grains and commercially processed foods with added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium; sustainable; culturally relevant; and enjoyable.”

‘Both diets had similar low calories and consisted of 50% to 55% carbohydrates, 25% to 30% fat, and 15% to 20% protein.

The participants ate a similar number of servings of cereals, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, sweets, and olive oil on both diets, but on the vegetarian diet they ate more legumes, nuts, eggs, and dairy products, as well as flaxseed and avocado (to compensate for the lack of essential fatty acids from fish).

Both diets were similarly effective for weight loss. After 3 months, the participants lost a mean of 1.88 kg and 1.77 kg while on the vegetarian and Mediterranean diets, respectively.’

Although these diets should be investigated in larger studies in other populations, this research suggests that “a low-calorie healthy vegetarian or Mediterranean diet pattern may offer a possible solution to the ongoing challenges to prevent and manage obesity and cardiovascular diseases,” Anderson said.
