Best Overall Diet? Mediterranean – Again (Still)

Easiest to follow. Best diet for Diabetes. Best Plant-Based Diet. Best Diet for Healthy Eating. Only the Ornish Diet beat it out for Best Heart-Healthy Diet. (This has “Blue Zones” written all over it!)

And, as far as weight loss goes, the number one diet involved meal replacement shakes – compatible with the Mediterranean Diet (and often discussed both around here (the office) and on this Blog. (If you are going to replace a meal with a shake, you might as well make it healthy shake!)

Also note that while the Keto Diet was tied for third place in weight loss, it was 34th place in best overall.

Happy New Year!

Food Confusion and Science

Here is an article, solid in science, that adds context to the confusion of foods facts and dietary choices.

And like most reasonable folks these days, they can not talk about all of that without mentioning the Blue Zones.

But I guess you have heard me harp on that enough – dozens of Blog Posts are dedicated to that lifestyle.

New Research: Chew Your Food!

As a child we were told, ‘Don’t wolf down your food!’ Aside from the fact that is was stated in the negative instead of the positive, it was good advice. I have Posted earlier about it, and about Fletcherizing each bite.

Here is some more research on the how and why it matters: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19875483?fbclid=IwAR1zKnGXzgd9h6hxgFDGWTbw2Lt5unPLr38-4ACZb5cPglsglKg7abV2_QA

“The Complete Guide to FASTING” by Jason Fung, MD

This from the section on Early Adopters, he also includes quotes by Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain, after a longer section on the value of fasting among the early Greeks.

“One early fasting advocate was Hippocrates of Cos (c.460-c.370 BC), widely considered the father of modern medicine. In his lifetime, people came to the realization that obesity was an evolving and serious disease. Hippocrates wrote, ‘Sudden death is more common in those who are naturally fat than in the lean.’ He advised that treatment for obesity should include exertion after meals and eating a high-fat diet, and he recommended that ‘they should, moreover, eat only once in a day.’ In other words, incorporating a daily twenty-four hour fast was even then recognized as highly beneficial in the treatment of obesity. Proving once again that Hippocrates is worthy of our reverence, he also recognized the benefits of physical exercise and eating plenty of health fats in a health lifestyle.”

“Other intellectual giants throughout history were also great proponents of fasting. Paracelsus (1493-1541) a Swiss German physician and the founder of toxicology, famously wrote, ‘The dose makes the poison.'” A brilliant and transformative scientist, he also wrote, ‘Fasting is the greatest remedy – the physician within.”

Sugar’s Sick Secrets: How Industry Forces Have Manipulated Science to Downplay the Harm(The Problem)

More on that here…if you ever thought that the food industry was your friend, re-think that.

The Solution

Search this Blog for ‘Jason Fung, M.D.’ and read or view everything he says: it boils down to just three or four simple messages, but getting the message may save your life.

If you are healthy, his message will help to keep you that way.

If you are NOT healthy, his message is the most important thing you can learn and understand. A starting place for regaining health. A strategy for taking back control. A way out when all other efforts may have failed. A simple approach that anyone can do: it costs nothing – in fact it will SAVE you money, time, energy, and effort.

Nutrients in Blood Linked to Better Cognition and Brain Connectivity in Older Adults

…on the Mediterranean Diet!!!

“The basic question we were asking was whether diet and nutrition are associated with healthy brain aging,” Barbey said. “And instead of inferring brain health from a cognitive test, we directly examined the brain using high-resolution brain imaging.”

New Words in Nutrition: Polyphenols

Recent research done on fruit flies indicates that polyphenols have an important influence on longevity.

That is nice. What is much nicer is that recent research on JuicePlus+ indicates that it supplies these polyphenols and they are both absorbed and assimilated into your body.

If you haven’t started taking JuicePlus+ yet, why not? If you are ready, contact us at the office and we can help you get started (425-348-5207).
