The Health Benefits you get from Intermittent Fasting and Extended Fasting to Fight Many Disease Models like Cancer

The health benefits you get from intermittent fasting and extended fasting.
U.S news

This is a huge benefit when doing intermittent fasting or extended fasting for someone with some type of brain issues or of Neurological Disorders.

Before we get started I think you should understand what the word autophagy means, this is a process that happens when you do an extended fasting, it is huge when it comes to health benefit for your body, this is only one of the many health benefits, especially for someone with neurological disorders.

Here we go, I just wanted to mention one more thing first before we dive into this information, those of you that are seniors like us how would you like to tap into the fountain of youth, after reading this you, you might see why prolong fasting could be the fountain of youth and how this could even reverse premature aging by following 2 very powerful protocols, all you have to do is msg us we will point you in the right direction, no obligations, what is crazy one of the protocols want cost you a dime, the other one you are already doing you just need to upgrade it.

Autophagy- It’s a natural process called autophagy (literally “self-eating”), and it’s the body’s system of cleaning house: Your cells create membranes that hunt out scraps of dead, diseased, or worn-out cells; gobble them up; strip ’em for parts; and use the resulting molecules for energy or to make new cell parts, this process is vital for people who have neurological disorders, the process helps to get rid of all the dead or old proteins that are floating around the brain, what is really cool that junk is used as energy for the body.

Regeneration of stem cells- Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose, fat and ketones, but it also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells. … During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells.

A study published in Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage — a major side effect of chemotherapy — but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.

In both mice and a Phase 1 human clinical trial involving patients receiving chemotherapy, long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. In mice, fasting cycles then “flipped a regenerative switch,” changing the signaling pathways for hematopoietic stem cells, which are responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems, the research showed.

“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system.”

The study has major implications for healthier aging, in which immune system decline contributes to increased susceptibility to disease as people age. By outlining how prolonged fasting cycles — periods of no food for two to four days at a time over the course of six months — kill older and damaged immune cells and generate new ones, the research also has implications for chemotherapy tolerance and for those with a wide range of immune system deficiencies, including autoimmunity disorders.

“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system,” said corresponding author Valter Longo, Edna M. Jones Professor of Gerontology and the Biological Sciences at the USC Davis School of Gerontology and director of the USC Longevity Institute. Longo has a joint appointment at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.

“When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged,” Longo said. “What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So, we started thinking, well, where does it come from?”
Fasting cycles

Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose, fat, and ketones, but it also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells. Longo likens the effect to lightning a plane of excess cargo.

During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells. In particular, prolonged fasting reduced the enzyme PKA, an effect previously discovered by the Longo team to extend longevity in simple organisms and which has been linked in other research to the regulation of stem cell self-renewal and pluripotency — that is, the potential for one cell to develop into many different cell types. Prolonged fasting also lowered levels of IGF-1, a growth factor hormone that Longo and others have linked to aging, tumor progression and cancer risk.

“PKA is the key gene that needs to shut down in order for these stem cells to switch into a regenerative mode. It gives the OK for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system,” explained Longo, noting the potential of clinical applications that mimic the effects of prolonged fasting to rejuvenate the immune system. “And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting. Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.”

Prolonged fasting also protected against toxicity in a pilot clinical trial in which a small group of patients fasted for a 72-hour period prior to chemotherapy, extending Longo’s influential past research.

“While chemotherapy saves lives, it causes significant collateral damage to the immune system. The results of this study suggest that fasting may mitigate some of the harmful effects of chemotherapy,” said co-author Tanya Dorff, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital. “More clinical studies are needed, and any such dietary intervention should be undertaken only under the guidance of a physician.”

“We are investigating the possibility that these effects are applicable to many different systems and organs, not just the immune system,” said Longo, whose lab is in the process of conducting further research on controlled dietary interventions and stem cell regeneration in both animal and clinical studies.

The study was supported by the National Institute of Aging of the National Institutes of Health (grant numbers AG20642, AG025135, P01AG34906). The clinical trial was supported by the V Foundation and the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health (P30CA014089).

Chia Wei-Cheng of USC Davis was the first author of the study. Gregor Adams, Xiaoying Zhou and Ben Lam of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC; Laura Perin and Stefano Da Sacco of the Saban Research Institute at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles; Min Wei of USC Davis; Mario Mirisola of the University of Palermo; Dorff and David Quinn of the Keck School of Medicine of USC; and John Kopchick of Ohio University were co-authors of the study.

1. Fasting helps protect against brain disease:

Researchers at the National Institute on Aging in Baltimore have found evidence that fasting for one or two days a week can prevent the effects of Alzheimer and Parkinson’s disease.

Research also found that cutting the daily intake to 500 calories a day for two days out of the seven can show clear beneficial effects on the brain.

2. Fasting cuts your risk of heart disease and diabetes: (body fat loss)

Regularly going a day without food reduces your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Studies show that fasting releases a significant surge in human growth hormone, which is associated with speeding up metabolism and burning off fat. Shedding fat is known to cut the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Doctors are even starting to consider fasting as a treatment.

3. Fasting effectively treats cancer in human cells:

A study from the scientific journal of aging found that cancer patients who included fasting into their therapy perceived fewer side effects from chemotherapy. All tests conducted so far show that fasting improves survival, slow tumor growth and limit the spread of tumors. The National Institute on Aging has also studied one type of breast cancer in detail to further understand the effects of fasting on cancer. As a result of fasting, the cancer cells tried to make new proteins and took other steps to keep growing and dividing. As a result of these steps, which in turn led to a number of other steps, damaging free radical molecules were created which broke down the cancer cells own DNA and caused their destruction! It’s cellular suicide, the cancer cell is trying to replace all of the stuff missing in the bloodstream that it needs to survive after a period of fasting, but can’t. In turn, it tries to create them and this leads to its own destruction

Trace Minerals: What They Are and Why the Body Needs Them to Function

Trace Minerals: What They Are and Why the Body Needs Them to Function

First let’s define the difference between inorganic minerals and organic minerals

Organic mineral- There are two types of minerals, organic and inorganic. Human physiology has a biological affinity for organic minerals.

Most organic minerals for our body functions come from dietary plant foods, a very important mineral that most health professionals don’t talk about much is fulvic acid this mineral comes from the soil and absorbed by the plant, this is a very important mineral that helps your body to absorb all the other minerals yet health professional do not really talk about this, the sad thing is most of the public is not getting this minerals due to the bad soil and the western diet, you may want to look into organic fruits and vegetables, even then we do not know how the soil is, but it is better than your local store bought foods. A growing plant converts the inorganic minerals from the soils to a useful organic mineral.

Inorganic mineral- Minerals are inorganic as they exist naturally in the soil and water.

What is an ionic mineral- An ion is a mineral or element that has a positive or negative charge. On the molecular level, that means the element has either too many or too few electrons. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond readily with water, making it possible for the body to absorb it. In other words, you need the right type of structured water so the minerals can be absorbed at the cellular level electrolyzed reduced water (hydrogen H2) http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com

Ionic minerals and OH- ion along with hydrogen H2 is produced during an electrolysis process the ionic minerals will bond themselves to alkalized restructured water and then enter the cells at the cellular level.

As you can see the negatively charge water can enter into the cells more efficiently, look at the cell wall those are water channels both sides of the channel has a positive side which means anything that is positive cannot enter OH- ions are negative/hydrogen H2.

It seems that there are some health professionals out there that are saying the body does not utilize inorganic minerals, so questions is, is there any benefits in drinking natural mineral waters from the ground water, I am not talking about bottle mineral water am talking about nature mineral water from the ground that has inorganic minerals. I had a person call me an idiot because I did a live video on how important electrolytes and trace minerals are in your water for hydration during intermittent fasting, that comment drove me to do this blog, he stated that inorganic minerals from natural water cannot be utilized by the body.

Here is a good example why his statement is false.

Sea Salt an inorganic mineral is it good for you of course it is- sea salt has been used for centuries to promote health and healing and beauty, it was so important it was a commodity used for trading.

Furthermore, if it is a true statement that inorganic minerals in our natural water cannot be absorbed by the body then drinking mineral water in nature would be of no benefit to an animal or human. We know this is not true. In nature, our mineral sources have always been water based (we are 70% water) either from the foods we eat or the water we drink.

When minerals come from water, they are inorganic. When one ingests sea salt for the mineral content they are utilizing inorganic forms of the minerals, the same as the inorganic minerals that are in water, remember the body is not stupid natural inorganic minerals the body recognizes as good, the body does not recognize chemical induced minerals ( man-made minerals) these types of minerals are used in bottle water or RO water systems, and mineral waters and those so called alkaline waters you buy at health food stores.

Man will ever be able to mimic minerals that are in nature, true health comes from all alkaline minerals and trace minerals that are in organic raw foods and natures mineral waters, research has already proved (Dr. Colin Campbell The China Study) that when you isolate minerals there is no longer a healthy balance, those of you that are spending money each month on mineral supplements you might want to reconsider what you are doing and get your mineral from raw fruits and vegetables uncooked and from electrolyzed reduced water.

Some say we can only utilize mineral elements if we get them from food (organic) yet others believe ground up rock (pill/capsule form-inorganic) will supply our mineral needs. Others are proponents of liquid sources in an ionic form such as one would obtain from natural mineral water or sea water or a good ionic supplemental formula. In a perfect world, there would be no need for supplementation at all.

Additionally, most foods grown today are quite deficient in what science has measured as normal mineral content, primarily due to poor farming practices and inadequate soil replenishment, natural erosion, pesticides and chemical fertilizers that create imbalances. Much of the food consumed today is excessively processed to the point of having little or no mineral nutrient content.

Realistically, it makes no difference where you get your minerals. The most important factor is the size and the form they are in.

Minerals are most effectively delivered in a water base fully ionized (electrolysis process device) (in their atomic state) as in nature. A plant takes the inorganic minerals from the soil where it is growing. It then synthesizes them into a molecular size and form by uptake through the root where the minerals are combined with water and pushed through the entire plant. A mineral stream that is saturated with inorganic molecules of minerals derived from rocks processes them into ionic form by forces of nature but they remain inorganic. An ionic liquid supplement derived from the elemental mineral is essentially the same process but processed by man. Once ingested, one’s body knows intuitively what mineral is available and exactly what to do with it regardless of its source. Again, the important thing to remember is that it does not matter if you consume minerals from plant sources, water base, or even dirt. What matters is how much time it takes the body to break down the minerals into their atomic (ionic) state in order to be effectively utilized at the cellular level.

When you use an electrolysis device that is attached to your kitchen faucet your natural city water the minerals will go threw the same molecular change as it does in nature when it goes over rocks, the device will also take most of the toxic contaminates out of your city water giving you a much healthier drinking water with healing properties a very powerful antioxidant(hydrogen H2). http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com

Food and water are by far the most logical sources, and yet both delivery systems have become so mineral deficient and/or polluted that they are poor sources for a full complement of one’s essential daily mineral intake. As a result, we have become a minerally deficient society.

This is way your family should be drinking electrolyzed reduced water through an electrolysis device (Enagic), the device produces a very powerful antioxidant hydrogen H2, it also takes the minerals that are in the water converts them into ionic minerals the best source of minerals science has already proved the healthy benefits when drinking electrolyzed reduced water daily.

Have you ever gone to try to start your car only to find that the battery was dead? Most of us have been there. For me it always seems to happen when I’m in a hurry to make an appointment or get to an important meeting. It’s usually nothing that a simple jump can’t fix, but it’s still a hassle. One that’s especially frustrating when I know that I caused the problem by forgetting to turn off the lights or leaving one of the doors ajar.

Why am I venting about my car and one of life’s relatively minor foibles, you might be asking? As I was pondering how something so seemingly minor as a dead battery can completely disable a vehicle, it dawned on me… our bodies are similarly dependent on vital minerals in order to “start” and continue “running.” Just like how a battery provides a vehicle with the electrical charge it needs to get going, minerals create the energetic spark that our bodies need to perform many essential, life-giving functions.
In a perfect world, we would get all the minerals we need from the foods we eat. But unfortunately, our soils aren’t as healthy as they used to be. A 1992 study found that U.S. soils contain a shocking 86% fewer minerals today than they did 100 years ago! Because of heavy food processing and poor diets in general, most people don’t get nearly enough of them. The result is widespread mineral deficiency and an epidemic of chronic disease.

What Are Trace Minerals?

By definition, a mineral is really any inorganic substance that occurs naturally and has an orderly crystalline structure. Rocks, metals, and soils all contain minerals, as does the water in the earth’s oceans. If you recall the periodic table of elements from science class, you’ll find many minerals listed there as well. In general, minerals function as a key constituent of solid, non-living matter, which is found virtually everywhere in the natural world.

Minerals can also be energetic, bearing a unique vibrational “charge” that gives them special catalyzing potential (note: catalyzing means to cause or accelerate a reaction). These types of minerals are absolutely vital for the human body, though in much smaller quantities than what you’d find in a slab of granite, for instance. We typically refer to these tiny energetic minerals as trace minerals because our bodies don’t need much of them to see big results.

Of the 103 known mineral varieties, at least 18 of them (and likely far more) fall into the trace mineral category, and are recognized as playing a critical role in human health. These include iron, zinc, magnesium, manganese, copper, phosphorus, molybdenum, iodine, chromium, potassium, selenium, sodium, chloride, sulfate, and boron. Our bodies require each and every one of these trace minerals in proper balance to facilitate health and well being, electrolytes are alkaline minerals sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium.

The Many Functional Roles of Trace Minerals

Much like how elemental minerals buttress rocks and other solid structures, trace minerals serve as reinforcement for bones, cartilage, and other bodily tissue. While they might appear solid and unchanging, your body’s bone structure is in a constant of repair and renewal. Trace minerals function as the lattice architecture. Calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium are among the primary minerals that keep bones healthy and strong.1

The cellular system also relies on trace minerals to produce red blood cells, also known as erythrocytes, that deliver oxygen throughout the body for energy production. These red blood cells specifically require iron in order to transport this oxygen. Without it, there would be no magnetism, so to speak, to draw in the oxygen, resulting in a total breakdown of the energy creation process.

Your muscles and central nervous system also require trace minerals in order to facilitate nerve impulses. Without them, the muscles in your heart would fail to contract, your brain would stop functioning, and your organs and body wouldn’t be able to move or flex. Among those trace minerals needed to facilitate the healthy functioning these important systems is potassium, which helps to maintain the proper balance of water inside your cells.

A strong, functioning immune system is contingent upon trace minerals as well. Your immune system requires minerals such as zinc to fight infections, heal wounds, and repair damaged cells. Selenium further supports the body’s ability to ward off heart problems and even protect against the formation of cancer cells.

Trace minerals may further help to:2

• Nourish hair and skin
• Enhance circulation
• Improve digestion and bowel function
• Facilitate the transfer of nutrients across cell membranes
• Regulate the body’s maintenance and growth of cellular and muscle tissue
• Balance the contraction and relaxation of muscle tissue
• Provide both structural and functional support for the body’s vital systems
• Normalize pH levels and prevent an overly acidic state inside the body
• Improve cellular communication
• Liquify stagnant and toxic lymphatic fluid
• Facilitate countless other metabolic processes important for maintaining life

Signs & Symptoms of Trace Mineral Deficiency

Here’s a particularly interesting fact about trace minerals… when they’re present in high enough amounts in the bloodstream, the end product is not much different than the composition of natural seawater. That’s right: healthy blood plasma contains roughly the same concentration of minerals as the ocean.

In fact, many trace mineral dietary supplements are made from seawater that contains high levels of sodium and many other important trace minerals. These include some you may not recognize such as beryllium, dysprosium, neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, and ytterbium.

Consider this: an 1897 study by French scientist Rene Quinton revealed that human cells can fully survive in a solution of “ocean plasma” seawater because of its powerful isotonic connection with mineral-rich blood. After draining a sick dog almost entirely of its blood and replacing it with a saline transfusion of diluted seawater, the dog reportedly lived for another five years and suffered no long-term adverse effects. This same study was replicated 50 years later with similar results.3

It’s when the blood becomes less like seawater that problems start to arise. Symptoms can vary widely depending on which minerals are lacking, but deficiencies tend to show up as the opposite of sufficiency. A few examples might be nerve and muscle pain or tingling due to a lack of nervous system minerals like potassium. Weakening bones or osteoporosis might indicate a lack of magnesium or calcium.

Common Symptoms of Mineral Deficiency

Other common symptoms of mineral deficiency (as well as some corresponding examples of the mineral deficiency potentially responsible) include:4

• Anemia (lack of iron)
• Poor digestion, brain fog, poor appetite, and chronic fatigue (lack of magnesium)
• Excessive fluid loss, abdominal pain, and bloating (lack of potassium)
• Loss of libido, poor immunity, inability to fully digest protein (zinc deficiency)
• Muscle cramping, tingling in the extremities, and irregular heartbeat (calcium deficiency)

How Does the Body Get Maximum Benefit from Trace Minerals?

How does the human body take full advantage of everything that trace minerals have to offer? These microscopic nutrients must carry with them an electrical charge that leans one way or another energetically. In other words, bearing either a positive or negative charge. This puts them into an “unstable” state, allowing them to aggressively seek out some other substance or element to bond to in order to achieve a state of equilibrium.

We call these types of trace minerals “ionic,” which is really just a fancy way of saying that they’re extremely bioavailable and ready to bond. One of the things they love is water, which just so happens to be the substance that makes up the bulk of the human body. Since they bond very easily and quickly to water, ionic trace minerals are a perfect match for optimal absorption by the body.

Most of the action takes place in the small intestine, where ionic trace minerals are pulled through mucous membranes and delivered to the bloodstream. Once in circulation, these powerful micronutrients can immediately begin their important work of maintaining and rejuvenating the many vital systems of the body.

“Trace minerals do not exist by themselves, but in relationship to one another,” says Alexander Schauss, PhD, senior director of research at AIBMR Life Sciences, about the interdependent nature of ionic trace minerals and their need to bond.5 “Too much of one trace element can lead to imbalances in others…Most trace elements need to be in ionic form to be well absorbed in the intestine.”

Trace minerals must further be ionic in order to function as vital co-factors in the facilitating of enzymatic reactions throughout the body. Enzymes are the biological molecules that catalyze nearly every chemical reaction that occurs inside the body. If they don’t have access to ionic trace minerals, enzymes have a tough time supporting things like healthy digestion and metabolism. (If you suffer from digestion or metabolism disorders, this can often be an indication that the body is suffering from a mineral deficiency.)
One way to avoid mineral deficiency is to consume plenty of traditional foods produced in harmony with nature. This means fruits and vegetables grown organically using biodynamic farming methods that help enrich the soil with beneficial bacteria and, of course, trace minerals.6 Conventional produce is typically grown in “dead” soils that are heavily sprayed with pesticides and herbicides that further deplete their mineral content.

If you eat meat, stick with grass-fed, pastured varieties. Grasses and other plants are loaded with vitamins and trace minerals that end up in the meat. Conventional meat derived from animals fed grains is typically lacking in trace minerals, as well as other important nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and other healthy fats.7

There are also dietary supplements on the market in both liquid and pill form that can help to replenish your body with highly-bioavailable, ionic trace minerals. Those derived from natural seawater will often contain the full spectrum of ionic trace minerals for maximum potency and functional effectiveness.

Conclusion- there is still a lot for science to learn about the body and how it utilizes inorganic and organic minerals, we still do not know all the trace minerals that the ground holds some day maybe.

Two of the most powerful protocols for cell regeneration it is vital to avoid premature aging and helps to prevent many disease models like cancer.

Cell Regeneration: A Matter of Life and Death

Intermittent fasting/Electrolyzed reduced water

You may have heard it said that the human body completely regenerates itself every 7-10 years – replacing all of the old, worn out cells with brand spanking new ones. Like many popular myths, this one is only partially true. Many systems of the body (but not all of them) indeed function on regenerative cycles that fall within this time span. This means that, for the most part, we really do get entirely new bodies every decade or so… pretty exciting, right?

This important process is called cellular or cell regeneration. It functions as the means by which our bodies stay alive and continue forging on. It helps us to grow and develop in our younger years, and avoid premature aging and death in our older years.

There is more to it than that, what you feed your body and the type of water you are drinking plays a big part. This where health professionals do not tell the whole story and that includes me, I was never taught that water mattered we just take it for granted, until about 6 years ago when I who was supposed to be healthy contracted mouth cancer, and my son in law at 26 had an aggressive MS, it was my wife with her investigation that found that the type of water does matter, she discovered that the body is 75% water, we already new that the bottle water, tap water, and city water were all contaminated with toxic chemicals, the problem was what choice of water did we have, she realized we have a choice, the problem was western medicine did not want us to know about it and schools did not talk much about water, in other words I was not taught that there are different types of water.

The most powerful antioxidant anti-aging anti-cancer is hydrogen H2 (active hydrogen) it is in every glass of electrolyzed reduced water we drink daily, it also is able to flush out inflammation which is the root cause of all diseases like cancer, to me as a fitness coach this made a lot of since, if you fix 75% of your body first then work on the other 25% which is like whole foods that are uncooked, you would have a better chance of survival in this toxic environment. It has been 5 years now and I am doing great I have controlled the cancer I had and my son in law has also controlled his MS, we both need to be doing these two powerful protocols to be sure we do not get our issues back, this is our lifestyle, you will see below that science does back this up.

Impact of intermittent fasting on health and disease processes (cell regeneration)

From what I have learned in the past 6 years has completely changed my health platform and the best way you are going to get cell regeneration is by doing intermittent fasting and changing the type of water you are drinking daily to electrolyzed reduced water, check this out http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com

Check out Dr. Jason Fung two book The Obesity Code and The complete guide to intermittent fasting.

Cell Regeneration Timeline: How Long It Takes for Body Parts to Regenerate

Cellular regeneration is evident in the fact that, throughout our lives, we get:1

• a new heart every 20 years
• new bones every decade
• new hair every 3-6 years
• new nails every 6-10 months
• new red blood cells every 4 months
• a new liver every 5 months
• a new outer layer of skin every month
• new lungs every three weeks
• new taste buds every two weeks
• new stomach lining every 2-3 days

In a perfect world, these amazing regenerative cycles would keep us all in tip-top, youthful shape forever. But we don’t live in a perfect world: our bodies eventually age, fall apart, and die, as I’m sure you well know.

I realize it’s somewhat of a morbid subject, but it’s the sobering reality that we all face. It’s one that, apart from a concerted effort to stave it off for as long as possible through life-giving diet and lifestyle habits, is going to rear its ugly head sooner or later.

And that’s the kicker: there are ways to help support your cellular system and its regenerative cycles to keep them functioning at their best. Cell regeneration is something that’s programmed in our DNA. The glitches and abnormalities that keep the cells that are supposed to die, alive (and conversely, that terminate cells that are meant to live), can be corrected with precise intervention.

Apoptosis: When Cell Death Is a Good Thing

Here’s one of the things you need to know about this that most people don’t: Programmed cell death, also known as apoptosis, is a completely normal and necessary function of human life.

There are many billions of cells that make up our bodies, and when we experience an injury, are exposed to toxins, or become stressed, some of these cells end up becoming damaged.

Rather than replicate this damage, these damaged cells will either repair themselves or “commit suicide.” This is in order to protect the rest of the body (including other healthy cells) from assuming their flaws. Apoptosis can also occur in cells that are only needed for a certain length of time; the body cleaning them up after their task at hand is properly completed.

“Cells die either because they are harmful or because it takes less energy to kill them than to maintain them,” says H. Robert Horvitz, an expert on apoptosis from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).2 “[I]t gets rid of cells that are not needed, in the way or potentially dangerous to the rest of the organism.”

One way of thinking about apoptosis is that it’s the body’s way of weeding its own garden. As new cells are created in response to the intake of nutrients, these cells divide and create even more new cells. This jumpstart the process of organ regeneration and energy creation – the fruitful “blooms” of the body in all of its glory. Rogue and excess cells also appear, and these “weeds” have to be removed or else they get in the way and cause problems.

Perhaps an even better analogy is clay formation, which Horitz describes like this:

“[B]uilding a complex organism like a human being is like creating an intricate sculpture. Cell division forms the clay, whereas cell death sculpts the clay into the desired form. Consider human hands, which start out as paddlelike structures. Fingers develop in the paddles, but then the cells in the tissue between the fingers must die for a proper hand to form.”
Keep in mind that apoptosis is the very same process that cancer cells are supposed to undergo so as not to develop into full-blown tumors.

In the event that they fail to self-destruct, for whatever reason, cancer cells take on the properties of healthy cells. They begin dividing, multiplying, and spreading to produce the potentially life-threatening condition we know clinically as a cancer diagnosis.

This is what cancer is, after all: a conglomeration of “zombie” cells that grows so strong that it creates its own competing organism within the body. Some of us are all too familiar with how disastrous this process can be, having lost our loved ones to this malignant progression.

Senescence: A Major Roadblock to Healthy Cell Regeneration

On the other hand, there’s another type of malignant cell that doesn’t necessarily go rogue and start replicating itself like cancer cells do. It doesn’t die or commit suicide, either, but simply lives on in static perpetuity alongside healthy cells as they go about their business. We call these senescent cells, and they result from constant exposure to stress and other damage, both endogenously and exogenously (meaning from both external sources and those within the body).

Senescent cells are basically “zombie” cells that don’t serve any useful purpose and are programmed to die, but for whatever reason refuse to do so. They become toxic as a result, building up inside the body and causing all sorts of problems.

This is where electrolyzed reduced water comes in, because of the active hydrogen (antioxidant) the most powerful antioxidant on the planet and due to the structure of the water it neutralize free radicals and flushes out inflammation at the cellular level daily, in other words any dead or damage cells that are in your cells at the cellular level will be flushed out daily so there is no buildup of toxic waste in your cells, you see why intermittent fasting and electrolyzed reduced water work so good together, you are detoxifying the body daily with every glass of electrolyzed reduced water, you need to be drinking 1 oz per pound of body weight. http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com

Scientific case studies showing the benefit of electrolyzed reduced water (hydrogen H2) dealing with oxidative stress of the body (inflammation)

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3257754/

Besides functioning as catalysts for the growth and spread of cancer cells,4 senescent cells are known to:

• Inhibit nutrient metabolism
• Promote weight gain (fat, not muscle)
• Suppress the immune system
• Damage blood sugar balance
• Impair memory (while contributing to dementia)
• Accelerate the aging process

Although they don’t replicate like cancer cells do, senescent cells may, in fact, be worse. They fuel an inflammatory response throughout the body that can create more cancer cells, electrolyzed reduced water (hydrogen H2) flushes out inflammation build up at the cellular level, It’s a vicious feedback loop where the one seems to cause the other, followed by the other in turn causing the one. In other words, damaged cells go senescent to avoid becoming cancerous, but in the process, they end up spurring on the proliferation of cancer cells.

4 Compounds That Target Senescent Cells & Help Slow Down Aging

So, what’s a person to do? While aging may be unavoidable, there are ways you can help ease its progression and age with grace while enjoying a higher quality of life. As the popular expression goes, “prevention is the best medicine.” In this case, stopping cells from going senescent in the first place. The next option is targeted therapies that can help clear senescent cells from the body – in turn preventing them from contributing to age-related disease.

1.Change the type of water you are drinking to electrolyzed reduced water that has antioxidant properties and has the ability to flush out inflammation daily at the cellular level (detoxifying).

2.Intermittent fasting to help with cell regeneration and control your body fat two books to purchase The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Intermittent fasting by Dr.Jason Fung

3.Go to a plant base eating platform cooking one meal a day 95% raw fruits and vegeables organic, moderate meats all pasture raised.

4.A high raw fat diet, avocados, MCT oil, coconut oil, mixed nuts, etc

5.Introduce cultured fermented foods like homemade kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut.

Great video by my wife Emily on kefir
https://drinknatureswater.wordpress.com/2016/12/19/the-key-to-reverse-aging-and-weight-loss-fermented-foods/

Here are four nutritive compounds that research shows can help eliminate senescent cells:
Other prominent examples of Nrf2-activating foods and nutritional compounds include:8

•Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) – a catechin antioxidant found in green tea

•Resveratrol – a polyphenolic antioxidant found in the skin and seeds of red grapes

•Rosmarinic acid and carnosic acid – two antioxidant compounds found in rosemary

•Curcumin – the primary active constituent found in turmeric

•Isothiocyanates (i.e. sulforaphane) – a class of sulfur-containing compounds found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage

•Diallyl sulfide and thiosulfonate allicin – two sulfur-containing compounds found in garlic

“These compounds are generally considered to be antioxidants,” concludes a 2010 study published in the journal Molecules.9 “They may be classified this way either because they directly scavenge free radicals or they indirectly increase endogenous cellular antioxidant defenses, for example, via activation of the nuclear factor erythroid-derived 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) transcription factor pathway.

Alternative mechanisms of action have also been suggested for the neuroprotective effects of these compounds such as modulation of signal transduction cascades or effects on gene expression.”

Conclusion- you combine these two powerful protocols you will turn your body into a fat burning machine and help slow premature aging if that is not enough you also will address hundreds of diseases model as research has shown.

The Six biggest mistakes that people make when Intermittent fasting.

The Six biggest mistakes that people make when Intermittent fasting.

First, intermittent fasting is not new, our ancestors lived by this, our bodies were designed to go through this process, and science now knows the huge health benefits when doing intermittent fasting.

These are the six biggest reason I feel that people do when they are doing intermittent fasting, intermittent fasting is flexible so there is no excuse why someone cannot do it, there is a protocol that will fit everyone’s life style.

1.What to eat when you come off a fast.

A lot of people who are doing intermittent fasting come off their fasting by eating processed foods and are still seeing success in weight loss, we choose not to do that. For us we want to come off our fasting with highly nutritional dense foods (lots of good raw fats) we just went through a healing and detoxing of toxic waste at the cellular level as well as detoxifying our organs, why would we want to put toxic waste and toxic chemicals back into our healthy new cells and organs, processed foods are poisonous to the body. We have experienced both ways, by far we have felt better on a highly nutritional dense meal after a fast, we felt horrible after we ate a meal that was processed, and be sides we want results as fast as possible, eating processed foods after a fast will slow your results down like weight loss and anti-aging.

2.Adding creamers and those so called healthy sugars to your Coffee and Tea when Fasting.

During your fasting it is very important that you monitor what you are drinking, and what is in your drink, you do not want to break your fast by putting something in your coffee or tea that will produce an insulin spike, the whole idea of fasting is not producing any insulin during your fasting (you don’t eat you lose weight) remember the hormone insulin tells the body to store fat for energy, you are looking to burn fat for energy, that is what will happen when you are no longer producing insulin you will only burn that unwanted stored fat. We drink our coffee black, we do not chew gum or use a mouth wash or a tooth paste that has some type of sugar in it etc, we use 2.5 very strong acid water that will kill 99.9% of all bacteria, we have an Enagic electrolysis device that produces the strong 2.5 water it is what we use as our tooth paste and mouth washing while fasting http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com the bottom line is beware of what you are drinking when fasting, in other words stick to lots of water we drink electrolyzed reduced water with natural electrolytes and a very powerful antioxidant check out the video link above, stick to water, black coffee, unsweetened green tea, we also do homemade kombucha.

3.Consuming BCAA or ELECTROLYTE supplement powders

Those of you that workout DO NOT put any BCAA or electrolyte powders or any recovery powder supplement in your water at the gym, if you do you have just broken your fast.

4.Not drinking enough water (Electrolytes)

Most of the public does not know this, bottle water, those so-called supplements electrolyte powders or mineral waters that tell you each glass of these type of waters has all the electrolytes in them, not true! Man cannot mimic nature, the best source of electrolytes comes from nature in your uncontaminated ground water, the problem is the ground water is contaminated, there is a solution we have a Enagic electrolysis device that takes our tap water converts into the most strongest antioxidant and electrolytes on the plant, we are drinking daily electrolyzed reduced water, you can go to google scholar a science research site type in electrolyzed reduced water, there you will see all the scientific case studies showing the benefits of drinking electrolyzed reduced water daily. When fasting you need to get a good source of electrolytes into your body it is important that you stay hydrated. Not only Are We drinking electrolyzed reduced water for the best source of electrolytes we also do Himalayan sea salt protocol, Himalayan sea salt is another good source of natural electrolytes. Those of you that are first starting out on a fasting protocol sometimes you will go into what we call waves of a little hunger pain, most of the time this means you are thirsty as soon as you drink a big glass of the right water it will go away, what we do if and when we feel this we have a ¼ tsp of Himalayan sea salt with 20 oz of electrolyzed reduced water feeling gone. We drink at least 1.5 gals of our structured water daily, check out this link for more info on electrolylzed reduced water http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com

5.Not having enough electrolytes

This is a big one, I covered why this is so important above go back read it again, this could be why so many people have a hard time staying on their fasting protocol.

6.You make it so complicated

There is a fasting protocol that will fit every bodies lifestyle, there is no excuses why you cannot do fasting and receive the health benefits and lose that unwanted body fat. Go to this blog post it will show you the different fasting protocols we do and how we fit it into daily situations that come up in real life.

Blog Post
https://drinknatureswater.wordpress.com/2017/08/11/why-intermittent-fasting-is-a-powerful-tool-for-body-fat-loss/

Check out what Dr.Jason Fung, author of The Obesity Code says about calories restricted diets why they do not work

Tip- for those of you that work out, my wife will put a 1/2 tsp sea salt in her 64 oz water bottle to take to the gym she drinks it all by the time she is done working out, I do 1 tsp in my gallon jug, not only does this help us make sure we get enough electrolytes during our fasting it also helps with regulating the flow of fluids through the cell at the cellular level and helps flush out inflammation and metabolic waste that is produced from exercising, these two baby boomers never get sore after a hard training session, just because we are seniors doesn’t mean we don’t lift heavy we still can power lift.

Why Intermittent Fasting is a Powerful Tool for Body Fat Loss.

Why Intermittent Fasting is a Powerful Tool for Body Fat Loss.

The information you are about to read does have science backing it.

Before you start reading understand that my wife and I are baby boomers she is 63 and I am 65 so those of you that are baby boomers and think it is too late for you, you are wrong, we have been researching this for about 3.5 months on ourselves, with some amazing results. We have learned and understand why intermittent fasting works so well for losing body fat long term and the health benefits it has for the gut and brain, the key to its success is the ability to control 5 hormones, calorie restricted diets does not and never will work, 99.99% of the people who do calorie restricted diets will fail long term even science knows this. Once you understand the root cause of why you are gaining body fat and why it is so hard to come off even though you have changed you eating habits and are doing tons of cardio at the gym, all this will make science, what is really cool the byproduct of all this is, you have tap into a way to have overall health to be able to fight diseases like cancer. take the time to read this information and check out our pictures enjoy.

Intermittent fasting helps to control these hormones (it worked for our ancestors it will work for you)

1. Insulin- hormone for fat storage
2. Ghrelin- increases appetite
3. Growth hormones- helps to build and sustain muscle mass
4. Peptide YY- decreases appetite
5. Noradrenalin- a stress hormone that improves alertness and attention

I am going to tell you guys right up front that calorie restricted diets do DO NOT WORK and never has, science has proved that, intermittent fasting is not a diet it is a healthy lifestyle to keep the body fat off long-term and to have a healthy gut and brain.

What is intermittent fasting?

“Intermittent fasting” is a term used to describe ways you can manipulate your eating patterns. It involves not eating for specific periods of time, with the intent to lose weight and improve health. Intermittent fasting can include anything from multiday fasts to skipping meals a few times a week. Many people consider it appealing because it doesn’t involve large daily calorie restriction.

Fasting is a practice that is centuries old, spanning across cultures, religions and countries. There have been claims that intermittent fasting offers other health benefits besides weight loss, such as:

• improving the body’s sensitivity to insulin
• lowering inflammation
• improving the digestive system
• reducing body fat

In one study, fasting helped halt the spread of intestinal bacteria into the bloodstream. Researchers have also suggested that the positive results from fasting can help with brain function.

The 16/8 method

In this version, you only eat during an eight-hour period each day.

• Skip breakfast every day.

• Eat only during a set 8-hour period, such as between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. You should keep this time consistent every day. You should base these hours on when you need food for energy, such as when you’re at work and when you exercise. During these hours, you should eat mainly unprocessed, whole foods.

During your fasting period you can have coffee or tea, I just started having my homemade kombucha it seems to be working great for me while on my fasting, it is very important that you keep yourself hydrated with electrolytes, we found it to be more beneficial to hydrate with electrolyzed reduced water because of the high levels of active hydrogen, natural electrolytes, the structure of this water helps with flushing out inflammation and for recovery after a hard training session http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com you need to drink 1 oz per pound of body weight, my wife and I if we feel a little hungry during our fasting we will have ¼ tsp of Himalayan sea salt with 20oz of electrolyzed reduced water sometimes 3 time per day.

The 18/6 method

The is the one my wife and I liked to do, it works well for us and our lifestyle, the protocol is similar to the 16/8 the only difference is we will finish or last meal around 6 pm and not have our next meal until 12 noon the next day, or first meal coming off or 18 hour fasting will also be a high dense nutritional meal organic we do not come off or fast and have any type of processed foods that is our choice, some people do and they still see the benefits we do not recommend that that type of foods.

Eat-stop-eat

In this version, you fast for 24 hours at a time.

•Once or twice a week, you don’t eat from dinner time to dinner time the next day. You fast for 24 hours straight. You can have coffee (no creamer) or tea be sure to hydrate with a good source of water like electrolyzed reduced water Free Ebook http://www.drinknatureswater.com 1oz of water per pound.

•You can follow your normal diet the other 5 to 6 days per week. You don’t need to count calories or restrict your diet on the non-fasting days, although you should stick to healthy foods as much as possible.
We also like doing this one a couple of times a week it seems that the magic starts when you do the 24 to 36-hour fasting.

The warrior diet

This version involves eating one meal per day.

•Fast for 20 hours per day. You can have coffee or tea during your fasting no creamer, no sugar of any kind even neutral sugars.

•Eat one large meal at night. You should eat veggies first, followed by protein (salmon wild caught) and then good raw fat. If you’re still hungry, you can eat carbohydrates (low glycemic). You can do this only after consuming those foods in the given order.

We have also done the warrior method, was not that hard had a lot of energy during the 20-hour fasting.

If you’re diabetic or hypoglycemic or has some type of heart issues you should be monitored by your health professional. One of the top Doctors in the field of diabetes uses intermittent fasting to reverse type 1 and 2 diabetes Dr. Jason Fung his book is The Obesity Code we recommend you read this before you begin your journey in intermittent fasting, especially if you have any of these medical issues.
Intermittent Fasting Is Highly Effective for Weight Loss

Intermittent fasting is a simple, that is relatively easy to stick to (4).

Studies have shown that when it comes to weight loss, intermittent fasting can be just as effective as traditional calorie restriction, if not more (5, 6, 7, 8).

In fact, a 2014 review found that intermittent fasting could help people lose an impressive 3–8% of their body weight in 3–24 weeks (9).

Moreover, a recent review concluded that in overweight and obese people, intermittent fasting may be a better approach to weight loss than very-low-calorie diets (10).

Interestingly, this approach to eating may also benefit your metabolism and metabolic health (1, 11, 12, 13).

BOTTOM LINE: Intermittent fasting is a powerful weight loss tool. It can also improve your metabolism and metabolic health.

How Intermittent Fasting Affects Your Cells and Hormones

When you fast, several things happen in your body on the cellular and molecular level.

For example, your body changes hormone levels to make stored body fat more accessible.

Your cells also initiate important repair processes, and change the expression of genes.

Here are some changes that occur in your body when you fast:

•Human Growth Hormone (HGH): The levels of growth hormone skyrocket, increasing as much as 5-fold. This has benefits for fat loss and muscle gain, to name a few (4, 5, 6, 7).

•Insulin: Insulin sensitivity improves and levels of insulin drop dramatically. Lower insulin levels make stored body fat more accessible (8).

•Cellular repair: When fasted, your cells initiate cellular repair processes. This includes autophagy, where cells digest and remove old and dysfunctional proteins that build up inside cells (9, 10)

•Gene expression: There are changes in the function of genes related to longevity and protection against disease (11, 12).
These changes in hormone levels, cell function and gene expression are responsible for the health benefits of intermittent fasting.

BOTTOM LINE: When you fast, human growth hormone levels go up and insulin levels go down. Your body’s cells also change the expression of genes and initiate important cellular repair processes.

Regeneration of stem cells during extended fasting, looking for anti-aging here you go, you just tapped into the fountain of youth.

Intermittent Fasting is a Very Powerful Weight Loss Tool

Weight loss is the most common reason that people try intermittent fasting (13).

By making you eat fewer meals, intermittent fasting can lead to an automatic reduction in calorie intake.

Additionally, intermittent fasting changes hormone levels to facilitate weight loss.

In addition to lower insulin and increased growth hormone levels, it increases release of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine (noradrenaline).

Because of these changes in hormones, short-term fasting may actually increase in metabolic rate by 3.6-14% (14, 15).

By helping you eat less (fewer calories in) and helping you burn more (more calories out), intermittent fasting causes weight loss by changing both sides of the calorie equation.

Studies show that intermittent fasting can be a very powerful weight loss tool. In a review study from 2014, it was shown to cause weight loss of 3-8% over periods of 3-24 weeks (1).

That is actually a very large amount compared to most weight loss studies.

According to this study, people also lost 4-7% of their waist circumference (1). This indicates that they lost significant amounts of the harmful belly fat that builds up around the organs and causes disease.

There is also one study showing that intermittent fasting causes less muscle loss than the more standard method of continuous calorie restriction (16).

However, keep in mind that the main reason this works, is that it helps you eat fewer calories overall. If you binge and eat massive amounts during the eating periods, then you may not lose any weight at all.

BOTTOM LINE: Intermittent fasting may boost metabolism slightly, while helping you eat fewer calories. It is a very effective way to lose weight and belly fat.

Health Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

Many studies have been done on intermittent fasting, in both animals and humans.

These studies have shown that it can have powerful benefits for weight control and the health of your body and brain. Here are the main health benefits of intermittent fasting:

•Weight Loss: As mentioned above, intermittent fasting can help you lose weight and belly fat, without having to consciously restrict calories (1, 13).

•Insulin resistance: Intermittent fasting can reduce insulin resistance, lowering blood sugar by 3-6% and fasting insulin levels by 20-31% (1). This should protect against type 2 diabetes.

•Inflammation: Some studies show reductions in markers of inflammation, a key driver of many chronic diseases (17, 18, 19).

•Heart Health: Intermittent fasting may reduce LDL cholesterol, blood triglycerides, inflammatory markers, blood sugar and insulin resistance. These are all risk factors for heart disease (1, 20, 21).

•Cancer: Animal studies suggest that intermittent fasting may help prevent cancer (22, 23, 24, 25).

•Brain Health: Intermittent fasting increases a brain hormone called BDNF, and may aid the growth of new nerve cells (26, 27, 28). It may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease (29).

•Anti-aging: Intermittent fasting can extend lifespan in rats. Studies showed that fasted rats live as much as 36-83% longer (30, 31).

Keep in mind that the research is still in its early stages. Many of the studies were small, short in duration or conducted in animals.

Many questions have yet to be answered in higher quality human studies (32).

BOTTOM LINE:Intermittent fasting can have many benefits for your body and brain. It can cause weight loss, and may protect against type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer. It may also help you live longer.

Intermittent Fasting Increases Several Fat Burning Hormones
Hormones are chemicals that act as messengers. They travel through your body to coordinate complicated functions such as growth and metabolism.

They also play an important role in the regulation of your weight. This is because they have a strong influence on your appetite, we do not worry about how many calories we eat during our eating window we do make sure we eat enough, protein, vegetables, and raw fats (14).

Intermittent fasting has been linked to improvements in the balance of some fat burning hormones. This could make it a helpful tool for weight management.

Insulin

Insulin is one of the main hormones involved in fat metabolism. It tells your body to store fat and also stops your body from breaking fat down.

Having chronically high levels of insulin can make it much harder to lose weight. High levels of insulin have also been linked to diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer (9, 15, 16).

Intermittent fasting has been shown to be just as effective as calorie-restricted diets for lowering your insulin level (17, 18, 19).

In fact, this eating style could reduce fasting insulin levels by 20–31% (9).
Human Growth Hormone

Fasting can cause a rise in blood levels of human growth hormone, an important hormone for promoting fat loss ( 20, 21).

Some studies have shown that in men, levels of human growth hormone may increase by as much as five-fold while fasting (22, 23).
Increases in blood levels of human growth hormone not only promote fat burning, but they also preserve muscle mass and have other
benefits (24).

However, women don’t always experience the same benefits from fasting as men do, and it’s not currently clear if women will see the same rise in human growth hormone.

Norepinephrine

Norepinephrine, a stress hormone that improves alertness and attention, is involved in the “fight or flight” response ( 25).
It has a variety of other effects on your body, one of which is telling your body’s fat cells to release fatty acids.
Increases in norepinephrine generally lead to larger amounts of fat being available for your body to burn.
Fasting leads to a rise in the amount of norepinephrine in your bloodstream (26, 27).

BOTTOM LINE: Fasting can help decrease insulin levels and boost blood levels of human growth hormone and norepinephrine. These changes can help you burn fat more easily and help you lose weight.

Intermittent Fasting Elevates your Metabolism

Severe calorie restriction over a long period can cause your metabolic rate to drop, as your body enters so-called starvation mode (or “adaptive thermogenesis”). Your body does this to conserve energy as a natural defense against starvation (33, 34).
This has been demonstrated dramatically in a study of people who lost large amounts of weight while participating in the Biggest Loser show on TV.

Participants followed a calorie-restricted diet and intense exercise regimen to lose large amounts of weight (35).

The study found that six years later, most of them had regained nearly all of the weight they had lost. However, their metabolic rates had not gone back up and remained around 500 calories lower than you would expect for their body size.

The study found that six years later, most of them had regained nearly all of the weight they had lost. However, their metabolic rates had not gone back up and remained around 500 calories lower than you would expect for their body size.
Other studies investigating the effects of calorie restriction on weight loss have found similar results. The drop in metabolism due to weight loss can amount to hundreds of calories per day (36, 37).

This confirms that “starvation mode” is real and can partly explain why many people who lose weight end up regaining it.
Given the short-term effects of fasting on hormones, it’s possible that intermittent fasting may reduce the drop in metabolic rate caused by long-term calorie restriction.

One small study showed that losing weight on an alternate-day fasting diet did not reduce metabolism over 22 days (17).

Intermittent Fasting Helps You Hold on to Muscle Mass

Muscle is metabolically active tissue that helps keep your metabolic rate high. This helps you burn more calories, even at rest (38, 39, 40).

Unfortunately, most people lose both fat and muscle when they lose weight (41).
It’s been claimed that intermittent fasting could preserve muscle mass better than calorie restriction due to its effect on fat burning hormones (42, 43).

In particular, the increase in human growth hormone observed during fasting could help preserve muscle mass, even if you’re losing weight (44).

A 2011 review found that intermittent fasting was more effective at retaining muscle during weight loss than a traditional, low-calorie diet (45).

However, results have been mixed. A more recent review found intermittent fasting and continuous calorie restriction to have similar effects on lean body mass (5, 46).

One recent study found no difference between the lean body mass of people who were fasting and people on continuous calorie restriction after eight weeks. However, at 24 weeks, those in the fasting group had lost less lean body mass (6).

My wife and I are baby boomers we train 6 days per week we do interval strength training power lifting, since we have been doing intermittent fasting for the last 8 months and added a couple of 24 hr fasting a week we have seen an increase in our daily energy as well during one of our hard training session, we have put on more muscle mass and lowered our body fat, for us we see no reduction of muscle mass.

What helps us is the type of water that we are hydrating with electrolyzed reduced water that is structured to reduced inflammation and is our recovery drink http://www.demo.drinknatureswater.com , we feel this is one of the main factors of why we are not losing muscle mass, this goes along the growth hormone production during the fasting period.

We recommend people to buy both of Dr. Jason Fung books The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting by reading these two books you will get a better Idea why intermittent fasting works so well, you will have a better chance of being successful on your fasting.

Documentation will always over rule conversation.

We have been doing intermittent fasting and extended fasting for about 3.5 months, we have found 2 very powerful protocols that have turned our bodies into a fat burning machine, understand I am 65 years old my wife is 63 years old, we committed to doing these 2 very powerful protocols for 90 days, it took less time and it was not hard at all, why? because anyone’s life style can do this once you learn the root cause to why you are gaining body fat and why it is so hard to come off, as seniors or even any age. Check this out pictures were taken October 2017.
