Fasting and the 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine

A student of fasting for over 40 years, I began Blogging about it some eight plus years ago, in a post on Juice Fasting. In fact things have gotten to the point where we have to put “fasting” in quotes, to clarify what we mean because it is becoming as meaningless a word as “natural”.

Here there are a number of Posts on the subject.

This Blue Zones Blog Post reviewing the work of Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi, who did win the 2016 Nobel Prize for Medicine as a result of his work on autophagy (a process that happens when you abstain from food – or by the way – to some extent when you exercise), is the most important Post on this entire Blog!

My wife thinks that this Wedge of Awareness Post is my best, but here, in this Blue Zones Post is a gold mine of amazing information that can and would change your life for the better – no matter how bad off or how well off you are right now.

It is not something that you do; it’s something you do non’t do!

It is free. It takes less time than whatever it is you are doing now. It is simple. And, with just the simplest and easiest of rules to follow, you can not screw it up. You can do it in progressions: start where you are, and gradually lengthen the time between “supper” and “breakfast”. Simple. Drink water (you know the water that I recommend, but get the best water you can find and afford).

(This needs a disclaimer: do this only under the supervision of a doctor – you may be too sick for the cure – it may not be for you. Perhaps that is some valid reason why you can not stretch out the time between supper and breakfast (you might be in the 1% – a guess – for whom this is not appropriate). If it turns out to be a rough ride from where you are to get back to health, you may want a partner to help guide you. Include your doctor in the process, it will education them as much as it does you!)

I could get more emphatic, but…

… it would not do any good.

Now it is up to you.

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’:-)

“Remarkable and a major breakthrough” I Don’t Think So

More amazing research on the benefits of fasting!

I have been a student of fasting for over 40 years, and this is the second recent report on new research showing that the benefits are almost unbelievable: but they are predictable and do happen over and over and over.

I reported, briefly, a couple of years ago about research on fasting that was remarkable and a breakthrough – but there isn’t any research news on fasting that is not positive – it is all almost too good to be true.

This is news that I can not help but share. I hope that you find it helpful.

“Weight May Affect Onset of Alzheimer’s”

And not in a good way (as you might guess).

That was the title to an article in today’s paper. The byline was: “More midlife pounds meant neurological disorder struck earlier.” It went on to report on a research study.

Two other quick quotes:

“Obesity in midlife has long been suspected of increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s.”

And, “Maintaining a healthy BMI at midlife is likely to have long-lasting protective effects.”

My recent Posts sharing the research reported on by Dr. Slosberg in Idaho a couple of weeks ago follow the same line. There are some high points in terms of good news that should be emphasized since most of the research is on the negative side – things are really bad health-wise in this country when it comes to the consequences of poor dietary choices and lack of exercise (or activity in general as it turns out).

Anyway, here are some very simple and effective ways to reverse all of the negative physiology and manage some of the major risk factors for illness.

1. Stop eating sugar.
2. Stop eating so much carbohydrates as a percentage of the daily diet.
3. FAST! (As in, do #1 and #2 ‘fast’ and FAST). The “new” twist from the new research is that simply extending the time between supper and breakfast longer – to up to 16 hours but 12 would be a big improvement for most of us – confers all the amazing benefits of what most people think of when they hear the word fast. What’s really cool is that ALL of the negative physiological changes (the ones that, collectively lead to Metabolic Syndrome – the precursor to all the killer diseases we slowly die of) are reversed with fasting. That is really cool news, it’s new – in a sense – but, actually the Natural Hygienic folks have been saying these exact same things since before Jethro Kloss and Paul Bragg got on the scene.

Something to think about.

Oh, and #4. Just move – do anything you can to be more active – almost anything is better than what we have right now with way too many people.

There is no “may” about it in my opinion.
