I know all about Jack Lalanne (thanks to you!), and I agree. He is fantastic and far ahead of his time.

Off topic a bit, do you do any running or bike riding or just power lifting?

Hey Woof!

When it comes to cardio i do what's called the HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training as this is powerful for our Pituitary gland releasing Growth Hormone and also allow certain muscular, immune and arterial endothilial genes to express for health and longevity.

Some examples of HIIT are wind sprinting or stadium runs when outdoors (i never jog) or in the gym you can do HIIT on the treadmill or exercise bike by doing ''sprint then walk then sprint then walk'' for 30 second intervals for just 20 minutes is enough to express the genes.

For me personally i usually do ''Stadium sprints'' at our local high school football stadium as it's concrete and super high as i sprint to the top and then walk down as i repeat that for 10 times usually as an example of what i do.

Does that help any or do you need more info.

I love food and eating waaaaaaay to much to follow a restricted caloric intake diet. As long as the food item is not on MY list ( this wouldn't work for everybody ) of absolute no no's ( a few items that come to mind: meat, sodium chloride, most sugars, white flour products ), Ill eat it in moderation from time to time. On very rare occassion, Ill brake my rules and eat the no no items in verry small quantities, but I won't cross the line with meat.

I do not think we are suppose to eat everyday like we do. Everything has its season.
I read a lot of research on this. It does activate repair withing the cells and fasting increases your bodies natural ability to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a element of most major diseases associated with aging and hinders the body's ability to repair. Inflammation of the system is also intensified by all that crap food that everyone is this thread is telling you to get away from.

They reduced calories all still operate on the basis of nutrition. You still are suppose to get your nutrients. Your body adjusts to the calories and you will not feel hungry anymore. If your diet is nutrient rich in the first place you may not get hungry at all. We are built to take on feast or famine.
But you should take a supplement to as food is not as nutrient rich as it used to be.


Its a fantastic way to save money I think. I also like that it reduced the load on the planet. I find it not efficient to eat more than I should. The animals that have lived the longest have some of the most flexible metabolic processes. Learn from the bugs!

And I always laugh when people say they are hungry at dinner...They are munchie. Hungry is something different.

Agreed. I had two wonderful beers this evening and I would never be able to enjoy even one beer if I was starving myself!

It's true. So man different ways to approach food. Maybe the past idea woul be to deprive during the winter and feast in the summer!

Yeap i was reading about what happens during fasting as it's called ''Autophagy'' as that starts to kick in once you've burned out all your glucose and start to burn fat to stay alive as the cellular Lysosome's kick in and start to eat all the scar tissue's and other non essential tissue in the body etc. as they ''clean house'' so to speak which may be why many who fast get some health benefits from our Lysosome's doing their job.

I tested it to help my knee along with detox. I talked about it before..But you get these pains during repair that remind me of growing pains. I do not know if you had those growing pain issues, but I did when I was 10. My one leg hurt so badly. It reminds me of that.

The ppl I know who use/have used CR claim they are hungry even years after starting. They say they get used to being hungry but that feeling never truly goes away.

I agree that most ppl do eat more then they need too. I think a good balance can be struck. If you workout and exercise hard you have a lot more flexibility in your diet.
