Three levers of Nutrition

Time restriction
Calorie restriction
Dietary restriction

A mini thread
Nutrition Is the most complicated field because of different variables in individual response to a given stimuli

You and I can eat the same thing at the same time under similar conditions, and it produces very different results

Doesn't invalidate the fact that you shouldn't
Eat certain foods.

Foods like wheat, soy, seed oils(canola, sunflower, margarine, soy, and so-called vegetable oil are very inflammatory)

You don't need modern fruits too, most of you are suffering from one chronic diseases or another

But the general rule is to eat more
Fruits and veggies.

Very flawed advice, believe me, they are certain disease situations I will even advise against eating veggies till you heal.

Modern fruits are GMOs with increased sugar contents decrease micros etc.

Sugar is Sugar no matter the source.

Metabolized the same
Dietary restriction;

may come from eliminating certain foods e.g sugar, carbs, meat, etc depending on individual goal

It's also means restricting yourself to eating certain foods over the others

E.g more eggs, more legumes, more soups, less grains etc
Time Restriction:

This is the window between the next meal, e.g 16/8,18/6,21/3 of 24 hours a day

Then there is an extended period of fast called Autophagy 24hours and above

Fasting is a lifesaver, Try and see for yourself
Calorie Restriction: this is like dietary and time restriction in one.

Amount of calories taken in a day through portion control, sources of calories considered too

E.g people trying to shed weight will have to restrict calories from carbs while increasing proteins and good fat
A very big deception is that "calories are the same no matter the source"

The above statement is the major driver of obesity and other metabolic issues.

Especially when you bring hormonal factors into the mix.

Refine carbs stimulates ghrelin "hunger hormones" which can drive

Proteins and healthy fats stimulates leptin "satiety hormone"

Making you feel fuller and energetic

Do this simple experiment during your breakfast today, take at least 5 boiled eggs.

Record when next you will be hungry.
Tomorrow breakfast simply take bread and Tea

Eat to satisfaction

Record when you will feel hunger pangs.

Reply your results on this thread by Monday morning if you are interested.
It's important to be a bit flexible in your diet choices

Constantly probe and tinker to see what works for you and stick to it.

Above all Enjoy yourself doing that.

I laugh when health professionals are still posting sugar doesn't cause Diabetes.

The problem started when you eat foods solely for calories.

And not how the food affect your body, the standard paradigm is you eat more and move less you get fat

What if your body is resisting
Using fat

What if you can't just stop eating

Refine carbs and processed food doesn't make you fat because of calories

But because of hormonal dysregulation

How this foods affects your hormones is the problem

Take for instance hypertension

HBP is not a Disease but a symptom
Standard practice requires you to take drugs and cut out SALTs.

Have seen 18, 23, 35, 30 years olds with hypertension

Do you expect them to be on low salts diet and drugs for the rest of their lives?

Hypertension can show you

Insulin Resistance (elevated Insulin)

An environment that makes Obesity Culture

Mini Thread
Other animals are evolving into stronger species, humans are devolving.

Recall my tweets a few days ago that man has not changed biologically, but a lot of cultural changes have detached us from the evolutionary pace we have to be.

Instead of concentrating on the ingredients
In food.

Our instinct goes to the number of calories therein.

Let me break it down for you to understand the deep sh*t we are in.

The ubiquity of sugar ladened inexpensive, good-tasting, super-sized energy-dense foods aka convenience food

Even children's foods are now laden

Anybody saying you should be eating up to 6 meals a day hates you.

If you do that continually, you will overwork your pancreas, and put your body in extreme insulin dependence

Subsequently insulin insensitivity and prediabetes.

Eat 1-2 times a day, live life to the fullest.
Eating too frequently is stressful to your body in a lot of ways.

Digestion requires a lot of energy, and constantly being in a fed state distracts your brain from performing other functions.

You are constantly having to use up glucose neglecting the use of fat as fuel.
Fat is the chief source of energy and the most efficient fuel

Your mitochondria(power house) are very okay with fat as the source of fuel

Your heart health will improve tremendously when you start controlling your eating frequency

Your liver will afford more time to work more

What does the Atkins diet and Japanese Diet have in common?

While one favours the consumption of more carbohydrates.

The other favours consumptions of fats.

Truth is they both work.


Because they somehow eliminate FRUCTOSE.
Japanese eats a lot of complex carbs, potatoes, rice, Beans, lentil, couple with a lot of chicken and seafood.

Atkins on the other hand favours low carb, cucumber, asparagus, Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower

Fats, animal fats, butter, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil In huge amount

The day I dropped a tweet that people should eat maximum of twice a day, it was full of mixed reactions.

First forward it today people that stick it out are having the best time of their lives fit and metabolically healthy.

The human body is more suited to starvation
That's why it's quite easier to gain weight.

Ancient fruits was more of a blessing than curse

The liver ability to convert fructose to fat was to help cover for calorie deficit during a hunt for food.

Today's food is to dense in calories we don't need.

Modern fruits
Contains more fructose.

We have wheat and derivatives

Starch grains all forming a pivotal part of our diets.

Truth is we can't eat our way to good health, but we can achieve a lot with fasting.

When you start eating for nourishment over Energy

You become more in charge.

Cholesterol is part of your body metabolism.

High cholesterol is not Dangerous

High LDL is not dangerous.

Where the problem is when you have high triglycerides to low HDL.

That's when you are at risk of stroke or cardiovascular disease
Cholesterol is a very pivotal part of your transport system, hormones cell membrane among others.

A healthy liver produces up to 80% cholesterol for you body

The rest being sourced from your diets, which account to less than 30%

What causes cardiovascular Disease is Plaque
This plaques are made from sugar debris, other blood impurities.

The function of HDL is to pick this debris and impurities and carry it back to your liver.

For recycling or removing it from your blood.

LDL is work is to carry cholesterol from the liver to cells that's needs
