World Health Organization Issues Reverse Osmosis Water Warning

World Health Organization Issues Reverse Osmosis Water Warning

Just about everyone knows that Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems excel at removing water impurities, but few are aware that they also remove the beneficial minerals. In fact, the reverse osmosis process removes 92-99% of beneficial calcium and magnesium. What’s the big deal?

After analyzing hundreds of scientific studies concerning demineralized or reverse osmosis water, the World Health Organization released a report stating that such water “has a definite adverse influence on the animal and human organism.”

Consumers have been so concerned with removing as many things from water as possible that they have forgotten to ask if the resulting water actually improves health or causes health problems. It’s assumed that no toxins equals better health, but there is simply more to healthful water than a lack of toxins, as the World Health Organization clearly points out.

What is alarming is that consuming reverse osmosis water for even just a few months can create serious side effects. “The effects of most chemicals commonly found in drinking water manifest themselves after long exposure.” However “only a few months exposure may be sufficient ‘consumption time effects’ from water that is low in magnesium and/or calcium. Illustrative of such short-term exposures are cases in the Czech and Slovak populations who began using reverse osmosis-based systems for final treatment of drinking water at their home taps in 2000-2002. Within several weeks or months various health complaints suggestive of acute magnesium (and possibly calcium) deficiency were reported. Among these complaints were cardiovascular disorders, tiredness, weakness or muscular cramps.” Again, serious side effects within just several weeks or months.

But it gets even worse. Because reverse osmosis water doesn’t have enough minerals, when it is consumed, it also leaches minerals from the body. This means that the minerals being consumed in food and vitamins are being urinated away. Less minerals consumed plus more minerals being excreted equals serious negative side effects and big health problems. In a scientific study performed to see if minerals consumed in food can make up for the lack of minerals in reverse osmosis water, scientists concluded that “reduced mineral intake from water was not compensated by their diets…low-mineral water was responsible for an increased elimination of minerals from the body.”

“It has been adequately demonstrated that consuming water of low mineral content has a negative effect on homeostasis mechanisms, compromising the mineral and water metabolism in the body.” Consumption of reverse osmosis water “leads to the dilution of the electrolytes dissolved in the body water. Inadequate body water redistribution between compartments may compromise the function of vital organs. Side effects at the very beginning of this condition include tiredness, weakness and headache; more severe symptoms are muscular cramps and impaired heart rate.”


Calcium and magnesium are both essential elements. Calcium is a substantial component of bones and teeth. In addition, it plays a role in neuromuscular excitability, the proper function of the conducting myocardial system, heart and muscle contractility, intracellular information transmission and the coagulability of blood. Magnesium plays an important role as a cofactor and activator of more than 300 enzymatic reactions including glycolysis, ATP metabolism, transport of elements such as sodium, potassium, and calcium through membranes, synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids, neuromuscular excitability and muscle contraction.

Although drinking water is not the major source of our calcium and magnesium intake, the health significance of supplemental intake of these elements from drinking water may outweigh its nutritional contribution expressed as the proportion of the total daily intake of these elements. Even in industrialized countries, diets not deficient in terms of the quantity of calcium and magnesium, may not be able to fully compensate for the absence of calcium and, in particular, magnesium, in drinking water.

Although drinking water, with some rare exceptions, is not the major source of essential elements for humans, its contribution may be important for several reasons. The modern diet of many people may not be an adequate source of minerals and microelements. In the case of borderline deficiency of a given element, even the relatively low intake of the element with drinking water may play a relevant protective role. This is because the elements are usually present in water as free ions and therefore, are more readily absorbed from water compared to food where they are mostly bound to other substances.

Since the early 1960’s, epidemiological studies in many countries all over the world have reported that water low in calcium and magnesium is associated with increased morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease.

Recent studies also suggest that the intake of water low in calcium (reverse osmosis water), may be associated with higher risk of fracture in children (Verd Vallespir et al. 1992), certain neurodegenerative diseases (Jacqmin et al. 1994), pre-term birth and low weight at birth (Yang et al. 2002) and some types of cancer (Yang et al. 1997; Yang et al. 1998). In addition to an increased risk of sudden death (Eisenberg 1992; Bernardi et al. 1995; Garzon and Eisenberg 1998), the intake of water low in magnesium seems to be associated with a higher risk of motor neuronal disease (Iwami et al. 1994), pregnancy disorders (so-called preeclampsia) (Melles & Kiss 1992), and some types of cancer (Yang et al. 1999a; Yang et al. 1999b; Yang et al. 1999c; Yang et al. 2000).

Recent epidemiological studies suggest that reverse osmosis water may be a risk factor for hypertension and coronary heart disease, gastric and duodenal ulcers, chronic gastritis, goitre, pregnancy complications and several complications in newborns and infants, including jaundice, anemia, fractures and growth disorders.

When used for cooking, reverse osmosis water was found to cause substantial losses of all essential elements from food (vegetables, meat, cereals). Such losses may reach up to 60 % for magnesium and calcium or even more for some other micro-elements (e.g., copper 66 %, manganese 70 %, cobalt 86 %). In contrast, when mineralized water is used for cooking, the loss of these elements is much lower, and in some cases, an even higher calcium content was reported in food as a result of cooking.

The current diet of many persons usually does not provide all necessary elements in sufficient quantities, and therefore, any factor that results in the loss of essential elements and nutrients during the processing and preparation of food could be detrimental for them.

In a multi-city study, women living in cities with low-mineral water more frequently showed cardiovascular changes (as measured by ECG), higher blood pressure, some form autonomic dysfunctions, headache, dizziness, and osteoporosis (as measured by X-ray absorptiometry) compared to those of cities with higher mineral content water.

World Health Organization (WHO) research on demineralized (RO) side effects.
Research showing the health dangers by drinking demineralized RO water.

Now that the RO company have figured out that the lack of minerals in their RO water is unhealthy what are they doing to put more minerals in the water, here is their solution.
They are adding more man-made minerals to the RO water systems in pre-cartages, the question is, are these mad made minerals healthy for the body?

According to Dr. Colin Campbell the author of THE CHINA STUDY, man will never be able to mimic natures natural mineral balance, in Dr. Campbell book he explains that the body works most efficiently on balance minerals in the foods we eat and the water we drink, he states the body needs all minerals, they all work as a team, alkaline minerals and trace minerals, you cannot take one or more out and put them in a pill and expect the body to recognize it as being healthy, the body is not that stupide, it knows that there is an imbalance, it will not utilize it and dump it in the blood, when this happens, over time you will get some type of medical side effect, including imbalance of minerals at the cellular level, this will cause a visit to your local hospital emergency room.

The bottom line is the body does not recognize those man-made minerals they are putting in RO water through cartridges, if you keep drinking this type of water, over time it will affect your health and your health at the cellular level.

Intermittent and extended fasting is the Key to Long Term Health and Belly Fat Loss (body fat) “WHY”

Intermittent and extended fasting is the Key to Long Term Health and Belly Fat Loss (body fat) “WHY”

Most health professionals out there have no Idea how important intermittent and extended fasting is for your overall health and how it will help you keep that unwanted belly fat or body fat off long term, that should be your real goal, long term weight loss. The problem is the health professionals don’t teach this method of losing body fat, their brain and education is still on the western way of dieting, restricted dieting, and calories in calories out diets, they don’t work, they never will, and they never have, they are only designed to work short term, if they did then why are we still having an obesity epidemic here in the U.S. with adults and now young kids.

You need to take your family’s health in your own hands, do your investigations, educate yourself, your family depends on this to protect them from diseases like cancer.

Here is something you might want to think about intermittent and extended fasting, it has been practiced since the beginning of time, by humans and animals, and still is today, what is crazy our ancestors of medicine use this method to treat their patients, with great success.

Okay, so let’s dive into why you should do intermittent and extended fasting, here you will learn the root cause of why you have that belly fat and why it is so hard to get off.

Hormones are everything, no matter what people say about calorie restricted diets, calories in calories out diets, the simple fact of the matter is, hormones are the catalyst of everything our body does, if we change how are hormones are we will change our bodies internal outlook on everything when it comes to physical looks and mental health.

Let’s talk about fasting effects on hormones, we are going to talk about 5 hormones.

I will break it down and show you how fasting and electrolyzed reduced water, yes that is right, the type of water you are drinking also has a huge place in overall health and weight loss, you put these two together you have the key to be successful long term when it comes to losing that belly fat, check out this short video that will show you why your family needs to change the type of water they are drinking to electrolyzed reduced water if this made sense msg us for more information and how you might be able to try the water for yourself at no cost.

Hormone Estrogen- why am I starting with this hormone? Because it is a huge topic right now, even the news media are now saying that the rivers here in the U.S have high levels of estrogen in the water, they also have research showing that the high levels of estrogen in the rivers are causing fish to change sex, guess what guys, you are drinking this water right out of you tap, you see now why you might want to change your family’s drinking water, everyone is also talking about testosterone vs. estrogen.

Estrogen in abundance is going to slow down your metabolism, it will also affect your bodies ability to utilize testosterone in a beneficial fashion.

Fasting improves something called autophagy it is the bodies natural process of recycling old wasteful cells, in short, it is the bodies way of cell eating process, when I say cell eating process I mean breaking down old wasted cells, cells that we not using anymore, cells from tendons, cells from ligaments, old amino acids, old proteins, they get broke down and recycle and or excreted, this also happens to excess estrogen as well when you fast, when you fast you are putting your body in a state of break down as is, you are breaking fats, you are breaking down proteins, you are breaking down carbs your body is in that hard reset mode, this allows our body to recycle cells.

This means it is recycling of excess estrogen and rebalancing testosterone and estrogen in the body, for men when estrogen is high and testosterone low they may be an issue with the prostate.

If estrogen is higher than that means testosterone is lower, your body is going to be using more of the estrogen, we need to shift that paradigm, reduce the estrogen so the testosterone is more available, that is what we really want to focus on fasting is the one way that will lower your estrogen levels.

Hormone testosterone- Intermittent and extended fasting especially extended fasting has a huge effect on testosterone, one thing stands true overall, every time you eat your testosterone levels fall temporally, it is simple, and it has been proven, there has been studies that show every time we eat our testosterone levels decrease for 3 hours even more, if you are consistently eating you are lowering your testosterone levels.

There is a study that was done by European Journal of Endocrinology on Luteinizing hormones and testosterone. Luteinizing hormone is the communication system between the brain and the testes to produce testosterone, this study took the impact fasting had on luteinizing hormones with both obese individuals and non-obese individuals, here is what they found, obese men that were fasting had a 26% increase in luteinizing hormones by fasting, resulting in an amazing 180% increase in available testosterone for both non- obese and obese men, we all know how important a good level of testosterone is for our hormonal balance and how about for building lean muscle to help with weight loss and to slow premature aging, you seniors like me, this is a most when we age, as we get older our testosterone drops, if you seniors are looking to slow premature aging , get off those meds and be in the best shape of your life, you need to do these 2 thing, first change the type of water you are drinking to electrolyzed reduced water and educate yourself about the health benefits intermittent and extended fasting has for you seniors, the byproduct of increase testosterone is losing that belly fat.

If you give your digestive system a break by not eating all the time by fasting, and not lowering your testosterone levels by eating, you are instigating your body to produce more testosterone.

For you weekend warriors out there or even those of you who are training to go on stage, you produce your own natural testosterone and growth hormones, do you think this might be much healthier for you long term, and be sides, you will get much better results if looking for better performances or even going on stage because your body is producing its own natural hormones, synthetic hormones you are using either over the counter or injections are dangerous for your health, I know this for a fact, I almost died from the side effects of using injection testosterone shots.

Insulin- Insulin is simple, it is a hormone that is to store fat, it is the number one root cause to obesity and diabetes, why is this?

Because you are insulin resistant, you have a lot of blood sugar floating around, high blood sugar equals bad.

This is where I myself had to completely change my mind set to the root cause of weight gain and belly fat when you get older (hormonal imbalance) it has nothing to do with food intake it’s all about hormonal imbalance.

All foods cause insulin production, what if you are eating every 2 hours, you are consistently producing insulin. Insulin helps to get the sugar into the cell, so it can be used for energy, so, what happens when the cell is too full of sugar and the insulin is still being produced because you are eating 4 to 5 meals a day, that extra sugar has to go somewhere right, it goes right into the blood, you then become insulin resistance and possibly a diabetic, the excess sugar will be stored as fat.

Guys this is a no brainier, When you are doing intermittent and extended fasting you are no longer producing insulin, your body needs glucose for energy to survive, your body will pull the stored up fat you have in your bodies bank account and convert it back into glucose and burn it for energy, it is that simple, you think may be if you did a 24 or 48 or even a 72 hour fast without producing any insulin, you might lose some body fat and benefit from spiking your testosterone and growth hormones to help slow premature aging and add more lean muscle, that is exactly how it works guys.

Cortisol- Insulin and cortisol are different, cortisol is the flight or fight hormone, cortisol is getting a bad rap, most of you think it is terrible, the truth is, it has dual purpose, cortisol can induce fat storage and fat loss.

It is true that cortisol can induce fat gain it is with the wrong foods.

Cortisol helps you increase your hormone sensitive lipase, which tells your body to burn fat, it also increases lipoprotein lipase which gives your body ability to store fat. So, how do we use cortisol to produce more of the lipase to burn fat and less of the lipoprotein lipase that store fat.

It all has to do with what you are eating and when you are eating.

When we are fasting we are not eating, so that means we are producing more of the lipase from cortisol, we are going to burn more fat, in that stress out mode, we are in that flight or fright mode because we are fasting, so, the body is freaking out, that’s ok, if food was in the equation while we were stressed out it would be a whole different ball game our body would store it as fat.

Food is not present when you are fasting, that is the point, you do not have food in the system, so, you are only leveraging that positive benefit of cortisol, like I said, cortisol has a dual purpose when it comes to fat utilization and fat storage.

The short of the story is fasting will help your body use cortisol to your advantage.
Studies have shown that fasting will increase your cortisol levels by 50%, the university of Virginia did the research.

Human Growth Hormone- HGH is naturally produce in the pituitary gland in our brain, if by fasting we can naturally harness our naturally ability to create it, that is the healthiest way to go.

HGH will help with building more muscle, we will recovery faster after a hard training session, and we are rejuvenating our skin, we also are slowing down premature aging, we are getting a lot of positive benefits when doing the extended fasting.

So, what about the science when it comes to fasting and HGH. The JSEM (The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism) found that even after a short fast that fasting improve your HGH levels by 5X, there have been other research done that showed 1250% in increase in HGH, those are extended periods of fasting.

Fasting is giving us a massive amount of HGH, also we are seeing us having multiple spikes of HGH throughout the day. Normally we only have a spike at night and in the morning, of HGH. Fasting allows us to have HGH spike throughout the course of period in which we are fasting, that means fat burning is coming from the HGH while we are not consuming foods, you are double the fat burning because we have an increase in HGH while we are already not consuming foods.

In conclusion- These are just a few of the health benefits you get when doing intermittent and extended fasting, now, if you combine this with electrolyzed reduced water as your source of drinking water daily you have now tapped into two of the most powerful protocols to help you and your family to have the ability to survive in the toxic environment from diseases like cancer.

Check this short video that shows how toxic the water is your family is drinking daily if this make sense msg us we will point you in the right direction, you will also find out how you can sample electrolyzed reduced water for free, no obligations.

To eat or not to eat before you exercise to lose Belly Fat

To eat or not to eat before you exercise to lose Belly Fat

Recent studies have concluded it’s better not to eat before you work out, but some experts say there are good reasons for grabbing a snack before you exercise.

To eat or not to eat.

That is the question for many people before they go out and exercise.

Researchers have been trying to answer that query for decades.

The results of a recent study from the American Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology and Metabolism makes a case for not eating. At least for overweight men.

The researchers say that fasting before aerobic exercise results in higher fat burning rates than exercising after eating.
Scientific case study

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM)

Feeding influences adipose tissue responses to exercise in overweight men, eating before exercise will affect the body from using its own body fat as energy scientific case study.

This confirms findings from a similar 2016 study in the British Journal of Nutrition.
British Journal of Nutrition

Effects of aerobic exercise performed in fasted v. fed state on fat and carbohydrate metabolism in adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Another study from 2013 even qualified the improvement, stating that overnight fasting before exercising (i.e., skipping breakfast) can result in as much as a 20 percent increase in fat burn compared with eating breakfast before a workout.

Science Daily
Lose fat faster before breakfast

Why should you not eat before exercising and what are the benefits from exercising when fasting.

Optimizing Hormones (Fast)

If the fact that Huge Jacked-man practiced intermittent fasting to gain muscle for his latest Wolverine movie isn’t convincing enough, consider this: An empty stomach triggers a cascade of hormonal changes throughout the body that are surprisingly conducive to both building muscle and burning fat.

The fasted state produces two significant effects:

Improved insulin sensitivity. Put very simply, the body releases insulin (a hormone) when we eat to help us absorb the nutrients from our food. The hormone then takes the sugars out of our bloodstream and directs them to the liver, muscles, and fat cells to be used as energy later on. The trouble is that eating too much and too often can make us more resistant to insulin’s effects, and while poor insulin sensitivity ups the risk of heart disease and cancer, it also makes it harder to lose body fat.

Eating less frequently (i.e. fasting more regularly) is one way to help remedy the issue, because it results in the body releasing insulin less often, so we become more sensitive to it—and that makes it easier to lose fat, improves blood flow to muscles, and even curbs the impact of an unhealthy diet.

The second reason a good old-fashioned fast can promote muscle gain and fat loss comes down to growth hormone (GH), a magical elixir of a hormone that helps the body make new muscle tissue, burn fat, and improve bone quality, physical function, and longevity.

Along with regular weight training and proper sleep, fasting is one of the best ways to increase the body’s GH: One study showed that 24 hours without food increases the male body’s GH production by 2,000 freakin’percent, and 1,300 percent in women. The effect ends when the fast does, which is a compelling reason to fast regularly in order to keep muscle-friendly hormones at their highest levels.

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM) Growth Hormones

We can’t speak of muscle-friendly hormones without bringing up testosterone. Testosterone helps increase muscle mass and reduce body fat while also improving energy levels, boosting libido, and even combating depression and heart problems—in both men and women . Fasting alone may not have any effect on testosterone, but there is a surprisingly simple way to produce large amounts of both “T” and growth hormone at the same time, creating an optimal environment for building muscle and torching fat: Exercising while fasted .
The Fast Way to Improve Performance

Exercise, especially intense exercise that uses a lot of muscles (think compound movements like deadlifts and squats) causes a big surge in testosterone—which is why it can make good sense to combine exercise and fasting . Many studies have found that training in a fasted state is a terrific way to build lean mass and boost insulin sensitivity, not just because of the nifty hormonal responses, but also because it makes the body absorb the post-workout meal more efficiently.

In short, fasted training helps to ensure that carbs, protein, and fats go to the right places in the body and are stored only minimally as body fat . Exercising on an empty stomach has been shown to be especially great for fat loss, and it’s even been shown that people who train while fasted become progressively better at burning fat at higher levels of intensity (possibly because of an increase in fat-oxidizing enzymes) .

Not interested in training like a bodybuilder? There are also potential benefits for endurance athletes, since fasted workouts can improve muscle glycogen storage efficiency (say that three times fast!) . What that means, basically, is that running on empty can make the body better at using its energy stores. The occasional fasted training session can improve the quality of “fed” workouts (or races) later on. In a nutshell: When the body learns to exert itself without any food, it gets better at performing when it does have fuel in the tank. Some studies have also shown that fasted workouts can significantly improve endurance athletes’ VO2 Max, which measures a person’s capacity to take in and use oxygen during exercise and is a pretty decent way of measuring someone’s fitness

During fasting the type of water plays a huge benefit on how it hydrates the cells at the cellular level, right type of water (electrolyzed reduced water) will also make your fasting much easier, due to the structure of the water and how it flushes out inflammation after a hard training session. The type of electrolytes also plays a big part in your success when fasting and trying to lose that belly, your base has to be the right type of water take the time watch this short video it will most likely answer a lot of your question, if it makes sense msg us, we can show how you can get samples for free, so you can see for yourself or if you would like more information, no obligations.

Why is it Important to do an Extended Fasting for Over All Health?

Why is it Important to do an Extended Fasting for Over All Health?

This is a great question, especially when you have your medical and health professionals telling you that intermittent and extended fasting is not a healthy way to go. I also was programmed to believe this, until I did my own research, science has known the health benefits of intermittent and extended fasting for decades, actually, it has been done by our ancestors for centuries, even back then they knew the health benefits of extended fasting.

My wife and I decided to do our own research on ourselves, we have been doing it now for about 5 months, the results are better than I could imagine. Three months into it we had such good results I decided to try it on a few other women, 2 who could not exercise, they also saw the same results when doing these two protocols, they changed the type of water they were drinking to electrolyzed reduced water with high concentration of antioxidants (hydrogen H2) and intermittent and extended fasting, by following these 2 protocol it was very do able, simple, and it fit there’s and our lifestyle, in other words, it will fit any body’s lifestyle, the results we had when it came to losing that belly fat or body fat is the best I have ever done, and it is a lifestyle that is long term.

The real health benefits we learned is when doing an extended fasting, 24, 48, 72, scientific research backs up these benefits, this is a list on just a few of the health benefits you get when doing extended fasting.
Scientific case studies

Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune system

Scientific case study


List of extended fasting benefits

1. This is the natural way the body detoxify itself
2. Autophagy, what this means is the body will use the old and damaged cells for energy, as well as the old protein floating around in the body, why is this important, because if you do not, an accumulation of old damage cells and old protein’s will put your body into an acidic environment, 100% of all cancer patients are acidic.
3. Regenerate new stem cells, this will help slow premature aging, and help reset the immune system.
4. Burning your stored fat for energy, this means, say good bye to your belly fat.
5. Producing more testosterone, this helps with burning stored fat and help with adding more lean muscle.
6. Producing more growth hormones up to 2000% higher, us old people we like this, helps with adding lean muscle when we work out and ant-aging.
7. This is the root cause of obesity, weight gain, and that unwanted belly fat, you are controlling the hormone insulin, insulin is the hormone that is designed to store fat, you are also controlling other hormones when doing an extended fast, in other words you are balancing your hormones, you women know what imbalance hormone can be unhealthy not only physically but mentally, by doing these 2 protocols you now have a way to balance your hormones.

This list is just a few of the benefits that science talks about when doing intermittent and extended fasting, combined this with changing the type of water you are drinking daily the results are amazing, msg us we will point you in the right direction to get started, the first thing you have to do is change the type of water you are drinking daily to electrolyzed reduced water, this is why, watch this short video link

Check this out documentation will always over rule conversation

How does your body set weight affect how you lose that belly fat or body fat?

How does your body set weight affect how you lose that belly fat or body fat?

The basic idea, from what I have learned, is that your body is predisposed to stay at its current baseline weight (i.e., the weight before you start dieting). So, if you start dieting and losing weight, your body will fight to get back to the starting weight, which is, in part, why people regain all the weight they lost on a diet after going back to eating off diet.

Resetting would update the baseline weight to your current weight. That way, if you stop actively trying to lose weight, your body should stay at the current weight. However, if you continue dieting and lose more weight, you would need to reset again to maintain the weight loss.

The question that many people ask is, how long will it take for me to reset my body set weight if I diet? I think it probably depends on how long you’ve been in that state. If you’ve been overweight for 20 years, say, you won’t reset your body’s set point in a month.

I don’t know how long it would take to reset, probably a period of years being at the weight you want to stay at. I believe fasting helps because it keeps your insulin under control while you are losing weight. Then, when you go back to eating normally, your body won’t be pulling you back to your original weight as strongly as it would have done after a simple low-calorie standard diet. You’ll still have to resist eating the way that caused the weight gain in the first place, and that might require periodic fasting to stay in control or go lower if that is your goal.

Hopefully, Dr. Fung’s new book specifically about fasting will clear some of this up, should be coming out soon.

People that are doing intermittent fasting and extended fasting at least are doing what works. The usually “eat less and move more” advice is a proven failure for practically everybody.

Intermittent and extended fasting, it’s not that bad a lifestyle.

You get to eat pretty much what you want most of the time as long as it’s not a binge and it is during your eating window, no counting calories, no counting fat grams, no counting protein grams, the biggest mistake I see people do is they do not eat enough during their eating window, they think by eating less during their eating window they will lose more weight, it doesn’t work that way, if you have a mindset like that, your metabolism will start to slow down, the body goes into panic mode, it thinks you are trying to starve it, if you are hungry every 1 or 2 hours, then eat, as long it is during your eating window, try to eat more dietary raw fats like mixed nuts, avocado’s, add MCT oil to your salads or an organic veggie protein smoothies, and stay with whole foods.

Intermittent and extended fasting is a heck of a lot better than having to cardo 1.5 hours a day and eat low-calorie every day for the rest of your life…

My Wife and I did what they call a 12-week diet down before we went on stage to lose as much body fat as we can. It is typically your calorie restricted diet, calories in calories out, 6 weeks into it we felt horrible, always hungry, moody because we were hungry, 9 weeks into it we were always tired, when we worked out we were getting weaker, yes we did lose weight for a short time, do you think you can do this the rest of your life, NO WAY, it was very unhealthy, it causes what they call metabolic damage to the body in short, hormone imbalance, that is why these body builders will gain so much fat back once they start eating again in a short couple of months.

With intermittent and extended fasting you are getting the health benefits from the fasting which science has already proved that, and you are losing that unwanted body fat long term, what’s cool, it fits most anybody lifestyle, once they find the protocol that fits them.

When people gain weight, they tend to stay at a certain weight for an extended period of time. Likewise, when you lose weight, many notice that they plateau at those same weight set points on the way down. I agree that the science here is spotty, however I also believe that

Leptin controls these body fat levels as it is the “anti-starvation” hormone. I think of it like the float valve in my toilet. 🙂

Hitting a plateau or a body set point when dieting does not mean that is what you “should” weigh nor does it mean that you can’t diet down some more from there. It means that your body remembers that was a safe and appropriate level of fat for you sometime in the past.

That is how it is “supposed” to work. Obese people usually have plenty of leptin circulating that should be telling their brain and body to stop eating – but their issue seems to be their “leptin receptors” instead of just the leptin hormone level. This is part of the reasoning behind “cheat meals” – increasing calories (and perhaps carbs) for a while may signal to the body that all is still good, and it is safe to drop more weight – and that is reportedly what happens for many people. Who know if the weight would have come off on its own over time without the cheat meal.

I only discovered about three studies in PubMed on the topic, and only one appeared to well done. It supported the additional calories and additional carbs position, however there was no good recommendation of how much or for how long. Others, think that just additional calories (or calorie cycling) is sufficient to reset leptin and body fat levels. On the other hand, there have been plenty of stories of people breaking through a plateau by fasting – but is it necessary or is it optimal? Who knows.

I’m thinking that there must be something that happens when you go on an intermittent or extended fasting that makes your body decide to stay at the next lower set-point instead of rebounding back up, and there doesn’t seem to be any guidance or studies about that.

Dr. Jason Fung the author of the Obesity Code stated this, and I agree, Dr. Fung argues that “set point” is managed by insulin and insulin resistance. If you have insulin resistance, and if you are overweight then we all do to some degree, then set point is higher. So, we must eat in a way to reduce insulin resistance.

A must-read book The Obesity Code by Jason Fung, MD. It’s an excellent read and not your average diet book. Dr. Fung is a nephrologist (kidney specialist) and founder of Intensive Dietary Management in Toronto, Ontario, where he specializes in treating people with type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Here is the kicker guys about the body set weight, science is just starting to look into the body set weight theory that Dr. Jason Fung talks about, and why we agree with this theory, for me the best research is on myself, this is exactly what I did, put my wife and I on an intermittent and extended fasting protocol combined with a ketogenic meal plan for the last 4.5 months and documented what I was doing daily, this also included checking my scale weight daily, here are my results on what we have learned about the body set weight theory.

My weight at the beginning of starting on an intermittent fasting research was 193#, I tried the traditional less calories in more calories out, by increasing my cardo to 4 times a week for about 30 minutes, still could not lose an ounce, then after what I learned I decided to try the 18/6 intermittent fasting 7 days a week, within a week I dropped down to 187#, during the 6 hour eating window I ate whatever I felt like and what ever amount I felt like, we still ate a whole food diet, but I did increase my good raw fats, this was one thing I wasn’t doing during my normal eating plans, according to the research when doing intermittent and extended fasting you must eat more good raw fats, like avocado’s, mixed nuts, MCT oil that I put in my veggie protein smoothie and added MCT oil to all my salads.

I stayed at 187# for about 2 to 3 weeks, one thing I did notice, even though I stayed at 187# we were both, my wife and I losing body fat, we both workout 6 days a week doing interval strength training, I also stopped doing any cardo in the gym, we were getting our cardo from doing interval strength training.

Then I decided to do a 24 hour extended fasting every Monday, on the first Monday I tried it I dropped my weight after 24 hours down to 185#, I know most of it was water, put I also know some of it was body fat, extended fasting will start burning body fat for energy, I sat at that weight for about 2 weeks, then I reset my body set weight to 180#, to make a long story shot after 4 months being on intermittent and extended fasting we found a protocol that works for use, I am now down to my 8th grade weight 176# as strong lifting weights when I weighed 203#, and have lost more body fat then I have ever lost, and I doing it with no real effort.

Could to much Natural Fresh Fruit be causing you to hang on to that unwanted Belly Fat?

Could to much Natural Fresh Fruit be causing you to hang on to that unwanted Belly Fat?

Have you been trying to lose weight and finding it difficult? Have you turned to juice fasting and cleansing but have been disappointed with the results?

Well, you might be surprised to learn that all of the fruits that you’ve been eating may be the issue.
Fruit is something most people consider a healthy food. And while that’s true to a certain extent, too much fruit can be problematic.

And funnily enough, when people are trying to lose weight, they often turn to more fruit or fruit juice, only to find themselves gaining weight rather than losing it.

Really…fruit? But, fruit is a natural, whole food source!

True. But it also happens to contain a lot of fructose, which is the main form of sugar found in fruits. And any form of sugar in high amounts is not healthy, especially if it’s fructose.
Fruit Is Full of Fructose

Take a look at the fructose content in these fruits as an example:

• 1 apple – 10.74 g fructose
• 1 medium banana – 5.92 g
• 1 cup grapes – 12.28 g
• 1 mango – 15.72 g

If you’re going to eat something sweet. Fruit is definitely the best type of natural sugar to choose. It’s got fiber, polyphenols, and beneficial compounds that aid with digestion. And it contains a natural supply of vitamins and minerals too.

And when it comes to fruit or fruit juice, always choose to eat the whole fruit.

Don’t Be Fooled by Fruit Juice

Another common misconception is turning to juicing as a means to better health. Many people do it because they think it’s a great way to lose weight or cleanse. But again, this is not the case – especially if your juice contains 2 or 3 pieces of fruit.

And don’t be fooled into thinking that a homemade juice is any better. The reality is that when you juice a fruit you decrease the fiber and nutrient content and increase the calories and sugar/fructose content.

For example:

• 1 whole apple has 70 g calories, 19 g carbohydrates, 3 g fiber, 14 g sugar.
• 1 cup homemade apple juice has 120 calories, 30 g carbohydrates, 0 g fiber, and 28 g sugar.

Now that’s a big difference, right? By juicing the fruit, you instantly double your calories and sugar/fructose intake.

When it comes down to it, too much fruit or fruit juice can cause weight gain and make it difficult to overcome metabolic problems like diabetes, obesity, insulin resistance, fatty liver, blood pressure and cholesterol.

And it’s all because of the fructose.

The Unique Metabolism of Fructose

There are different types of sugars. You’ve probably heard of some of them – glucose, lactose, sucrose, fructose and so forth.
Because fructose does not require insulin like other forms of sugar, researchers first thought it may be the solution to curing diabetes and metabolic issues. Unfortunately, it’s turned out that the opposite is true.

Too much fructose consumption causes metabolic problems like diabetes, obesity, insulin resistance, fatty liver, blood pressure and cholesterol

Fructose is a unique type of sugar because it gets metabolized entirely by the liver.

Let’s compare glucose and fructose so you can get a clearer picture of how this works.

When we eat glucose in something like brown rice, our body absorbs it from the digestive tract and converts that glucose into energy we can use, or stores some of it for later use as glycogen in the muscles and liver. Then our glycogen stores breakdown to glucose when we need it for energy.

Fructose, on the other hand, is poorly absorbed in the digestive tract and does not get used as energy. Our body doesn’t have the ability to transport fructose into the cells like it does with glucose. Instead the liver processes it and stores the fructose as fat.

If I were to eat 120 calories of glucose, just 1 calorie gets converted to fat. If I eat 120 calories of fructose, 40 calories get converted to fat.

All fat cells need a backbone to be created, that backbone is called a triglyceride. And guess what helps to rapidly make them? Fructose.

High consumption of fructose also promotes fat in the liver, which in turn promotes insulin resistance and high cholesterol (the bad kind we don’t want). These metabolic issues are signs of prediabetes and increase your risk of getting type 2 diabetes.

And just to top it off, eating too much fructose also affects your hunger and appetite signals. It literally bypasses important regulatory mechanisms in the brain that help us control energy balance and metabolism, meaning you’re more likely to eat more and still feel hungry when you eat too much fructose.

This is just the tip of the iceberg because more and more research is now looking into the effects of fructose on our body, meaning we’re bound to see more evidence pointing to its negative influence on our health.

It’s true that the main forms of fructose contributing to metabolic issues are things like high fructose corn syrup, sugar (which is 50% glucose/ 50% fructose), and other forms of added sugars – most of which aren’t natural.

But if you do have any type of metabolic problem or you’re struggling to lose weight, then don’t exclude fruit consumption as part of the issue. Cutting it down or even cutting it out for a while, might just help your body in more ways than you could have imagined

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.


Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune system

 Scientific case study


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
