VEGAN SUMMER SHRED UPDATE/ MY FITNESS JOURNEY THUS FAR

Hello and welcome back to my channel today I wanted to share with you my finisher needs fr not just the summer shred but I’m going to kind of share my story from like how I got started into like a fit lifestyle back when I was about eighteen and nineteen that’s when I kind of started working out and like doing this so I’m going to show you where I’m at right now and then I’m going to kind of talk about how I’ve gotten there so far if you watched my videos recently you’ll know I’m doing like a mini summer shred for summertime so definitely have stepped up things a notch which I’ll talk about so first I’m going to show you our mat right now [Music] [Music] okay so now that I have put a shirt on and you saw kind of where I’m at now I want to talk about like how I got there so if you watch my more recent videos you know that I’m doing like a summer of vegan summer shred and if you were watching me for longer than that you know that I’ve been doing the world’s slowest cut because I took like a long time to kind of get myself back to the good balanced and maintainable place so I want to share with you my entire story today starting from when I first like steps foot into a gym I’m one of my most asked questions is like how did you get into fitness or what is fard you to start working out or anything like that so back in the day I was a dancer performing arts was and is my passion like I love to entertain I want to be on stage in front of a camera just like yes ant stands like that’s just that’s just my that’s what I live for so I was dancing for years I taught dance I did competitive theater and I was a choreographer and I did the whole night I did that for for a while and then I hit a point where I kind of felt like I was at a crossroads with dance because it was like I either had to basically like move to New York or California pursue dance or kind of just find a normal thing to do and I decided to go to school and give that up I was dancing every day my day was basically like I would wake up while I was in high school I was in a social program so I would dance during the day I would dance after school I was go to dance classes or I go teach dance so I was very very active I didn’t have to worry about what I ate I pop-tart Oreos like I had some disordered even eating habits but I did not recognize it at the time I was very very insecure about my body but at the same time I like crap I think a lot of people can relate to that I didn’t know how to be healthy I didn’t really care because I didn’t put on a ton of weight from eating McDonald’s and Wendy’s because I was so active so once I came at that point were like I had to kind of I kind of stopped dancing and I was focusing on on school obviously all of that activity suddenly stopped I got a job at the gym ironically I was not into working out I just got a job there and I would be sitting the whole time so I worked at a desk and then I would go to class and I’d be sitting in that come home and I’d be studying or writing a paper and I be sitting and I would still was still eating the same so after a while that started to catch up with me so I was eating ramen noodle and McDonald’s and all this stuff and I started to go kind of fluffy so like I said I was already an insecure child like child I was already an insecure young girl that the insecurity started getting a little worse because I started to feel kind of fluffy and all the go my pants are feeling a little tighter like oh I got some little handles going on here I started to feel more insecure and it was not comfortable in the bikini and I was a little unhappy about that so I was like okay I probably should stop eating pizza and ramen noodles every day and I should probably take advantage of my free gym membership because I worked at the gym right so I committed myself to three days a week that’s like I was like if I do to three days a week I’ll be pleased with myself and I wrote it on a big calendar in my room I was like honestly I probably only made it one or two days a week for a while I didn’t know what I was doing I would run a lot because that was the only thing that I knew like I would just run on the treadmill I didn’t really know what to do with dumbbells or anything like that and as far as eating I slowly started to change the things that would eat like I kind of just stopped going to get fast food you know I was around people who were personal trainers all the time so I kind of would ask them for help and they would be like like oh like have a salad so I started like pushing things out for healthier options and then I got the opportunity to move to California and that was like a dream come true for me because like California is where I want to be and my heart has been there since I was little like I don’t know what what it is about that place it it calls me and so I went out there with my friend and other than my one friend I had nobody out there no friends no family I had to get a new job and I had so much alone time that I was like you know what like I’m not going to I’m not going to just give up my whole new healthy lifestyle that I was attempting to start I say attempt because I failed a lot and since I had nothing else to do because I met friends to hang out with and have to be at school because I pretty much dropped out of school to go to California I would go running outside I would run up and down the stairs I would do push-ups and squats and all kinds of stuff and who knows what my form was right or wrong but it started to feel really good because I was doing something just for myself and it was like every day it was like this little accomplishment and I started to feel like oh this is like like this is kind of fun like my workouts was probably 20 minutes long they were not anything crazy but it was it was fun because like because I missed I had stopped dancing and I really missed that like getting that movement and just like kind of getting in the groove but listening to music on my headphones like it starts to feel good and I started being very consistent and I would do it almost every single day and I was like okay I’m still going to keep it I was eating like Greek yogurt and oatmeal and smoothies and stuff and I was just like making healthier choices remember I said my first progress picture because I was like you know what I’m working like I want to see if there’s any changes in my body so I took a progress picture and I’m a raptor like a few weeks I compared them and I was like wow I actually look a little different like my waist looks a little tighter and so then I was very motivated to keep going like once you if once you get through that first little like rough patch of getting motivated and you see some sort of progress or you feel it and I didn’t weigh myself at the types of witness skill but once you see that first bit of progress you kind of get motivated to continue and so I wanted to keep going I didn’t really know how to how to step things up I didn’t have a plan I was following nothing like I wasn’t even like like I had I wasn’t there wasn’t like Fitness people on Instagram or maybe there was but I didn’t know about it at the time so I ended up coming back to Florida and I was a little bit sad about it but I was happy to be with my family again and I got my job back at my gym that I was working at and I was like you know what now I I really like this whole working out feeling healthy thing I want to like step it up I want to keep going so I asked my friend Jason with a trainer at the gym to help me out and he would I would I would stay after work and wait for him to be done with his clients and like have him show me like showed me the way like and he would show me how to use the machines and stuff and like having that help like honestly changed my life because I would not have probably I probably would have been too intimidated to do anything unless somebody had showed me and helped me along so it’s Jason if you’re watching this Thanks I started to work out like you know a few times a week like I would had a little routine going okay man do like today okay I’m gonna do chest today and I was like just really enjoying it because I wasn’t working for any sort of specific goal I was just doing it because it felt good and like that’s honestly I think the best way to start is to do it for yourself you have to do it because you enjoy the exercises and you have to do it because you know you want to so I never did anything I didn’t want to do like for example I don’t like Zumba I like everything else other than Zumba I love dance I love to work out I love salsa I love hip-hop dancing I love it all I don’t like goombah so I’ve never taken a Zumba class like don’t do what you don’t want to do so after a while of kind of just doing that and stuff I definitely noticed changes in my body but I wasn’t I didn’t have whole lot of muscle development and I would get um there were bodybuilding coaches that went to my gym that would kind of come up to me and be like you compare have you ever thought about competing because you have like a good you know good figure to you know you can set consider it and I was always kind of like at like I went to one bodybuilding show to support my friend and I saw with the bikini girls look like and I thought they looked good and everything it just wasn’t it really interests me I wasn’t like wow I want to do that like I never I never felt like that and so they would say that’s mean I’ll be like oh like I’m so flattered but like now I just kind of do this I like working out just for me and then I went through a breakup and at the end of that relationship one day one of those coaches came up to me and said you should consider competing and I remember I went told my boyfriend at the time Oh so-and-so says that I have a good figure for competing like isn’t that so cool that he said that about me and my boyfriend was like what are you talking about like you don’t have to figure for that like you’re not athletic enough like you’re not fit enough like he basically told me like I didn’t have what it what it takes and I was like you do like do you know like he obviously didn’t know who I was because he didn’t know how ambitious I could be about something so we broke up very shortly after that conversation that’s not why we broke up but they just didn’t help and then after that I hit back one of those coaches up and I was like a like yo like you said that I may have what it takes to compete like I want to try it out I just want to do it one time I just want to do one show see how fit I can get really learn how to workout like a bodybuilder and and do it for fun like just do it because I enjoy it so during that time I really liked what became so serious and I was just like I’m ready to have just to feel good about my body to know what I’m doing in the gym like I was just ready for a switch it was like turning a switch on in my head and I always tell people that like when it comes to making it the decision to have a fit life it’s honestly like flipping a switch that you are capable of it from day one like from way before I was to California when I was trying to commit to three days a week at the gym I was so capable of it but I just didn’t flip that switch and then after my breakup that switch flipped and I was just like this is what I want to do like I am serious about this I want to feel good I want to look in the mirror and be like damn because I didn’t really feel like that and so I trained my ass off I was so committed I was on point with my diet like I did not cheat like a thing on my diet when I was competing like I was so so dedicated I didn’t miss a cardio session I did everything I was supposed to do and I really learned how to workout because my coach trained me like a whole five days a week in the gym so I learned I learned how to do it because I made that decision I flipped that switch and I decided that I was going to be so serious about my priorities with health and fitness I lost a lot of friends I lost pretty much all my friends that I had at the time because they thought I was no more fun because I didn’t want to go out drinking they thought I was weird because I would show up to dinner parties and not need anything because nothing fit my you know my my meal plan and they would make fun of me I got made fun of publicly on Facebook I got made fun of publicly on Twitter people would come up to me in the gym and say things to my face like like people would I would hear literally hear people talking about me like right there people that I knew that would then come to me and be like oh hey Bianca like but right over there they’re saying like well she looked so cool because she starting to look like a man with like I mean if you guys have seen my pictures I don’t think I’ve ever looked like a man and if I did then I look like one hella good man we tell you after I went through about two years of competing after my last competition I had my breast augmentation and I could not train for a few weeks and that was when I hit a really hard depression because I realized I did not have that outlet that bodybuilding training became an outlet for me and I no longer had that because I was resting from surgery and I went through this hole I was at a time of really just self-reflection and I thought about why am I doing this like am i what what are the reasons I’m competing and I realized that what started out as me being in the gym for me became me you know trying to compete so that I can look a certain way to fit an image and I was like I don’t need to fit this image anymore I’m never going to be that the perfect bikini girl because the perfect bikini body doesn’t exist and I decided and I have so many people reaching out to me for help that I decided that I want to focus my energy on helping them Andrey put my energy back into just like loving my body and loving myself the way that the whole reason that I set foot in the gym in the first place was to feel good about myself and to do something that was fun and I brought myself back there and that’s kind of how I got to where I am now and I’ve explored all these other forms of fitness from martial arts to new styles and I got back into dance I’ve been dancing again and it feels amazing and I use that as a form of my fitness and I can honestly say that like to get to you know a point you have to be consistent I flipped that switch on like I was like I’m gonna be consistent about this and yeah like I have days where maybe something comes up and I’ll make it to the gym but I’m going to go to the gym the next day like that’s that’s really what consistency is so my best advice to you what I hope you get from the story is that we all go through ups and downs you might lose friends along the way but you just you have to do it for yourself and you have to love yourself every step of the way like I love myself to my fluffiest and my skinniest I depressed times I had to pick myself up and love myself and and you have to do that like you have to do it for you you cannot do it for somebody else you cannot do it to fit an image don’t do it because you want to look like the girl in the magazine don’t do it because you want to win a trophy do it because you want to be healthy and happy and you love your body and you want to take care of it so that is my best that is my story as much as I could possibly sum it up I hope that it was a little helpful for you I kind of didn’t mention is that the past three years Mike fitness journey I’ve been completely vegan and that has not affected any sort of growth or weight loss or anything like that if anything it’s made me feel better because it gave me more of a passion to do this because now it’s like I’m showing people what you can’t accomplish on it with on a vegan diet so it just kind of inspired me even more but you can absolutely do whatever you set your mind to and I hope that you like my story and I hope that if you have if you have this desire inside of you to become to get a fit healthy body and to be the best version of you I hope that you go out there and do it because you are 100% capable of doing it you just got to turn that switch on turn the switch on get your ass to the gym or maybe it’s not the gym maybe you want to go running when you want to go to yoga class whatever it is and maybe you need somebody to help maybe you need a mentor or a coach like I did my friend Jason was the very first person to mentor me and maybe that’s what you need and there’s a million people out there with great knowledge in their brain so it’s just reach out to somebody or read some books or you Google like you can learn so much with the internet so that’s all I have for you today and if you need any training programs to follow for the gym or even at home check out my website the link will be in the bio you can check out my vegan supply design guide if you need help as far as macro counting on a vegan diet or anything like that and you can email me for online coaching because I am accepting clients as always yes that’s it okay sending you all loving light as always ha peace

Vegan Strongman Eats ONE MEAL A DAY !

meet dr. noon s almond raw he only eats one vegan meal a day that’s right he’ll eats one hour a day proving if you eat healthy you will not lose muscle or lack energy he even set a world record in dead lifting but his goal is not bodybuilding or strength its anti-aging longevity and the highest quality of health and life we’re not telling people to eat only one meal a day but we are here to show you what’s possible with intermittent fasting and that we do not have to eat animal products in order to thrive only a handful of people on this planet have the determination to live this way but it’s amazing what happens when we do mankind is not supposed to have the health problems it does and what we call aging is not normal let the wise words of this master teach and lighten and inspire you hi thanks for being here today it is my pleasure so you only eat once a day that is so I saw the video you’re on the air every you were a dead lifting champion that is so I’m presently the world deadlift champion drug-free world deadlift champion in my particular class I hold on several world national regional Records cyclic fasting for instance is known to potently promote growth hormone release so throughout the duration of a daily fast your growth hormone concentration tends to increase if you combine that with resistance exercise in the evening as you probably know that increases testosterone production when you sleep that increases growth hormone production IGF production so we’re talking about anabolic hormones that essentially promote the preservation of muscle tissue so a regimen which entails daily cyclic fasting evening resistance training all of these things combined to enhance the preservation and also augmentation of muscle tissue so you’re saying somebody’s and 30s 40s and 50s to actually gain muscle if it is regimented if it combines these factors that is increased growth hormone secretion as a consequence of protracted fasting now you notice that working out late in the day is more beneficial than working out earlier in the day what does it matter it does matter and and that is because essentially you want to enhance autophagy throughout the day you want to be catabolism your proteins you want to be catabolism stored sugar and stored body fat but in the evening you actually want to suppress autophagy in order to promote that preservation of muscle tissue so it is resistance training that stimulates your skeletal muscle that provides those metabolic factors that promote muscle retention so yes evening it’s best to do resistance exercise this is actually a good advice for even women they’re older postmenopausal women that who is working out your muscles is part of what keeps you young and do indeed you got to do weight training even if you’re an old lady you got to work here otherwise your bones go week everything starts falling apart it’s important what you’re saying is it helps keep you young this isn’t a vanity thing it’s part what needs to happen in your life indeed indeed and sarcopenia that is age-related muscle wasting muscle loss is a major of catalyst for premature mortality especially in women right they say that the older you get the more you lose muscle the more you lose your hormones the more you start slowly basically falling apart what you’re saying is you keep working out that doesn’t necessarily happen your case yes yes that is quite so you can definitely avert many of those changes and slow down that process so you found that you only have to sleep as much as the average person yes that was one of the first things that I observed I was able to do without as much sleep as I had previously and I was able to recuperate from exertion far more rapidly that I had been in the past I was simply interested intellectually in the pursuit of anti-aging studies anti senescence studies and as I began to discuss this with my then-girlfriend approximately 20 years ago she said this is interesting caloric restriction cyclic fasting specific nutriceuticals a refined diet all of these things clearly demonstrably scientifically contribute to lifespan extension and I explained how I was going to commence collecting data writing a book and she said she’s not my wife by the way new net Munro why don’t we do it and it took some time to reflect on that and I said well why not and that was about a decade and a half ago and through a few evolutions if you will we’ve been on the almond regimen for approximately 15 years without fail it entails a daily fast of 23 hours in duration caloric restriction that is we consume approximately 1,000 to 1,500 calories a day it entails specific nutraceuticals that is nutraceuticals that have been found to increase maximum lifespan in one or more organisms it entails daily exercise it entails meditation ascesis and basically that is the almond regimen qualitatively the diet is devoid of meat and centers on specific staples if you will basically nuts grains tubers dried fruit we always eat in the evening we consume our evening meal our main meal after our evening resistance regimen our exercise is typically organized in such a way that in the morning we engage in so-called persistence exercise what you might call aerobics in the afternoon that’s typically another aerobic session time permitting and in the evening is the resistance exercise session and this can entail a number of different standard conventional weight lifting exercise with integrated weighted yoga postures in between sets and after this evening resistance session is meditation or final meditation session because meditation is interspersed throughout the day we meditate in two different postures and one of those postures I can demonstrate to you briefly this posture is called a rule AHA that is standing home and this is the posture that I typically assume in my brief of periods of meditation say 10 to 15 minutes Aroo AHA is a composite Egyptian term and it means again standing form the ultimate intent of all minimalist meditation is to progressively produce a state of sustained tranquility where ideas images emotions are expedited from the mind there are essentially 10 domains of interventional studies what I call the two tractus of anti-aging interventions several of fundamental they include caloric restriction cyclic fasting and specific nutraceuticals and a range of discrete genetic modifications that alter specific physiological phenomena in organisms almost all of them will entail either an increase in the optimization of autophagy and that is simply a process that enables the body to renew its tissues glycation is an important phenomenon glycation is that process whereby circulating sugars bind to protein lipids in the body and render them resistant to renewal that accelerates aging you also have fat accumulation or adiposity that has been found to increase the rate of Aging and limit lifespan but more specifically it’s been found that the extra patient of adipose the diminution of adiposity increases maximum lifespan in mammals and other organisms people you say there’s no way you can have that kind of muscle and not eat for 23 hours a day maybe it’s I know the body’s more efficient but people are going to say well doesn’t your bodies are eating up the muscle after a while actually limited muscle catabolism is a good thing limited tissue catabolism is a good thing and it might be illuminating to conceive of it in this way the vast majority of the solid component of your body consists of proteins and each of those proteins that constitute our proteome so to speak have a definite life span and the integrity in health of your body is largely dictated by the integrity of your individual proteins so if you are able to prevent damage to the corpus of proteins that constitute your body or increase the rapidity with which you renew and recycle proteins you are functionally physiologically younger there are a lot of people I’d say because it used to be protein protein protein what are you getting your protein Gatti animals nowadays the big thing is where you get your sugars like the body needs to have sugar to run on sugars the body’s fuel if you don’t put sugar in your body carbs all day long it’s gonna you’re gonna basically waste away wait what do you think of that well there’s a fascinating body of research which indicates that the process of glycation is integral to aging and glycation is that process whereby simple sugars illicitly bind to the body’s proteins and render them resistant to that process of renewal and this has been found to greatly accelerate aging that’s one aspect of it the other aspect is that when scientists have subjected animals to a low glycotoxins ayat’ that is a diet that is low in so-called advanced glycation in products this independently increases lifespan so you have a concomitant effect if you reduce the endogenous generation of glycation products and of course the best way to do that is simply to reduce your circulating sugar concentration to the lowest extent practicable and you avoid or reduce your assimilation of exogenous advanced glycation in products which are created upon cooking and our extent in various foods whether cooked or not you can increase lifespan through this Avenue of glycation restriction and this is one of those interventions that are included in the so called detractors of anti-aging interventions that is glycation diminution and this points to the fundamental importance of cyclic fasting as an avenue of lifespan prolongation because it is cyclic fasting that most potently suppresses the concentration of circulating sugar the lower the concentration of circulating sugar in your body the less sugar you have to attack your body’s tissues and to render them dysfunctional if you will where you say you get your energy family if your glucose levels and alone oh that’s an interesting question most individuals have an appreciable amount of energy stored in adipose and this points to another element of the detractors of anti-aging interventions and it’s that if animals are rendered lean through either surgical expectation of adipose tissue targeted genetic interventions which decrease adiposity that increases lifespan independently so in a convoluted way what I’m saying is that when you don’t consume exogenous sugar you make use of that stored adipose and that extra patient of adipose independently promotes longevity obviously you can get energy out of fat but you don’t have a lot of fat on you so where do you get your energy from I like your question because that points to the third Avenue which is autophagy when you deplete your glycogen largely from your liver and your skeletal muscle and again the morning aerobic exercise stimulates that and you have a low content of adipose tissue your body makes use of stored proteins it Khattab eliza’s all of your body’s proteinaceous tissues and recycles them as substrates for energy and that autophagy conduction of energy metabolism if you will contributes to lifespan prolongation by renewing proteins more rapidly under sustained caloric restriction or cyclic fasting skeletal muscle is preferentially preserved and there are more labile proteins that are catabolized before protein and before brain tissue so these are selectively preserved so ok let’s talk about your your diet so here you eat a lot of nuts and visit roots start just things like that yes grains grains really all this within an hour yes or less skills we have our tripartite meal if you will and by tripartite I mean that the first thing we consume when we break are 23 plus hour fast is what I call the almond amino elixir consisting of three protein sources soy spirulina brewers yeast and ideally a dozen isolated amino acids and the next thing we consume is the main meal one of those staples of which I mentioned earlier these typically include beans and rice um typically we have one of three beings cannellini beans is my favorite the red kidney beans and when I say bean this is the common bean phaseolus vulgaris and then many different cultivars but one of the main reasons that we select the bean as an optimal staple if you will is because there are many properties associated with the common being that accord with lifespan extension and these include inhibiting the enzyme alpha-glucosidase which promotes optimal glycemia if you will these are called a fiber which really helps that sugar levels and you don’t get rid of toxins it’s great tindy probably not the best cook foods you have if you don’t go with cookies is great okay go I’m sorry wrong no no yes roots tubers rice grain and nuts and seeds fruit and fresh vegetation is not high on our list of staples and that’s simply because the cellulose and the water content take up space if you will so if you have a regimen where you’re constricting restricting your feeding to an hour or less and you consume foods that occupy a large volume have a higher water content indigestible fiber over time that can reduce your sense of satiation so you want to have nutritionally dense foods in order to essentially derive the most nutrients in a minimal amount of time right you wanna drink a Surrey and then there is the minor meal and the minor meal is nothing more than a dessert typically nuts dried fruit often what you might call peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or peanut butter and Nestle bot sandwiches which roughly means royal jelly that’s one of the staples of our minor meal and I say peanut butter and jelly with some reluctance because it differs a bit from what you might find in a typical grocery store it simply crudely crushed peanuts and fruit preserves on bread that’s a typical dessert a typical dessert may also be roasted peanuts with dark chocolate I’m glad you said peanut bars I love Hannah butter and everybody says peanuts our dad’s got the toxins in it after Lou Thompson toxin air that is why roasted peanuts are actually preferential in our ethos if you will um because if you consume raw peanuts or germinated or so peanuts it promotes that growth of fungal organisms and aflatoxins but um just to give an indication of the scientific basis there is an entire tract taped with several sections that discuss multifarious epidemiological and interventional studies which find a relationship between longevity and nut consumption and peanuts are particularly prominent in those studies that is it’s been found that consumption of peanuts of quartz with lifespan the particular variety is simply crushed um crunchy peanuts with little added salt no other ingredients pie is almost all he averaged over there palm oil sugar the sugar and all that that’s why I’m sometimes reluctant to call it peanut butter because of the confusion that is essentially the almond meal the tripartite almond meal throughout the 23 hour fast we typically consume teas in herbal infusions of various sorts these include green tea black tea oolong tea but also two of the South African teas honey bush and red tea or rooibos hibiscus one of my favorites rhubarb tea and any number of herbal infusions most of which have been found to influence one of these several physiological factors that we know are operative in the aging process and those again include autophagy optimization glycation inhibition fat oxidation diminution of inflammation etc so when you say nutriceuticals that sounds like something from the pharmaceutical industry you’re talking about herbs and natural things that’s quite correct there several of these one is niacin bound chromium another is glucosamine another is curcumin or turmeric another is resveratrol and combined with cyclic or intimate and fasting the polyphenols that you find in green tea in blueberries and in pomegranates so when we speak of nutraceuticals we’re talking about these agents and physiologically all of these nutriceuticals have been found to modulate one of several molecular mechanisms and again we have our familiar glycation autophagy induction immune enhancement and lipid oxidation or minimization and you take these throughout the day as stand with your teas and wired stuff yes yes the tea’s that we consume when they are sweetened they’re sweetened with non calorific sweeteners such as stevia which is essentially the sole sweetener that I use during my fasting period so your stomach yeah sorry not at all it’s a good sign no this is actually a good comparison here you haven’t eaten in a while your stomachs growling he hasn’t eaten since yesterday and he’s still fine my accessory yeah well that sucks boy excellent and actually that effect is partly attributable to a peptide called ghrelin and it is released by the gastrointestinal tract in response to food deprivation it actually increases the expression of a peptide called BDNF brain-derived nerve growth factor which increases the proliferation of neurons in the brain specifically in the hippocampus an area that’s associated with learning and memory and that is probably among the reasons that fasting and caloric restriction increase mental or cognitive acuity so this might explain people in India there mainly are vegetarians and they don’t eat a lot but yet they have some of the smartest people in the world I can like literally like calculate to the 100th decimal point and these people that then say you need me you need animal products you need fat you need sugary all that stuff tin to function properly you got it dialed in to the point where you’re you’re proving you need any help products I’m somewhat conventional and that I promote the ingestion the use of essential multi-mineral multivitamin supplementation and whenever someone subsists on a calorically restricted diet either quantitatively restricted or temporally restricted it’s important to ensure that you get the minimal requisite amount of essential nutrients right and that’s what I get from a standard vegetal micronutrient micro minimal mineral supplement I take that in powdered form in the almond amino elixir and it’s the first thing that we consume on an empty stomach and that’s designed essentially to be sufficient as a source of energy and nutrients without the need for any food at all so the elixir is intended to deliver all essential nutrients in a form that is easy to assimilate and the meals are simply for satiety and indulgence because I think that’s an important point to stress if you’re going to have a lifelong regimen that is predicated upon lifespan prolongation it has to be sufficiently palatable in order to be sustained over a lifetime and indulgence gratification is an important element of enjoying life and we do find that our diet is very palatable very enjoyable even with the perceived monotony we loved in it feeding time is always festive it’s always a feast if you will what the research indicates is that both cyclic fasting and caloric restriction greatly increased energetic efficiency such that organisms can make do with less all of their physical cool systems become more efficient and they’re able to effectuate their physiological operations with far less energy and that reduced energetic demand actually results in a lessened generation of those deleterious byproducts of metabolism free radicals for instance advanced glycation in products so with a reduction in metabolism you get a concomitant reduction in waste products and other deleterious agents that damage the body so the less waste products that your body has to deal with the more clean areas more efficient it is indeed being clean is almost more important than massive amounts of fuel just being guzzle down indeed another effect that has been observed widely on caloric restriction cyclic fasting and other interventions that increase lifespan is a decrease detoxification capacity and more specifically an Augmented expression of so-called Phase two enzymes or xenobiotic enzymes and these are enzymes that are specifically expressed in the liver also kidney and other tissues that essentially convert toxins in such a way that enables them to be expiated from the body more efficiently so this is thought to be a major factor in the lengthening of life’s been associated with fasting and caloric restriction so the L of the organs that help eliminate toxins from the body the liver the kidneys if they’re cleaner they can focus more on producing enzymes and keeping you running optimally rather than just cleaning the house and getting rid of unwanted garbage indeed and also as we discussed together we are exposed to multi Farias toxins that we can do little as individual to avoid in our modern environment so to the extent to which we can augment our detoxification capacity we can protect ourselves from some of these toxins that would otherwise be ubiquitous that are ubiquitous and we simply can’t avoid right the toxins in the air the water even the negative people it just drains us our life works and dude so the cleaner we are mentally physically and emotionally the better we can thrive as long living healthy beings indeed but I must interject an element of my philosophy and that is I wholly accept the inevitability of Aging I wholly accept the inevitability of death and my regimen is simply predicated upon postponing that process to the greatest extent prime having a high quality of life indeed which is much below the last 40 years they’re just falling apart yeah explaining about the other people yeah and it’s important to have sufficient energy mentally and physically in order to arrive at the psychological philosophical existential state that you wish to attain before that ultimate end you have a website you want it I mean these I want to know more advice blog where do I go you can go to our website

thank you you’re quite well wow what a video huh I’m gonna summarize the important parts for you guys you weren’t paying attention because there’s some really important points to be made here first of all we’re not telling you guys to only eat one meal a day this is an extreme diet it’s only for a few people in the world who willing to dedicate their lives to this but what we are trying to do is show you a that you will not waste away if you fast daily that you know 60 eats one meal a day I’m telling people to only fast for 16 hours a day and eat for 8 hours so there’s really an you don’t have the animal products in order to have muscles notice he also said sugar ages did he catch that part he does aerobics several times a day and he does weight-bearing exercises at night aerobics cardio and weight exercises are not the same thing okay you got to move your body notice he did a lot of standing during the day standing versus sitting so we intermittent fasting standing him versus sitting and he when he eats his meal the reason he has heavy things like beans and rice and peanut butter things like that is because he needs to feel full he wants to enjoy his meal he said that he gets his nutrition before he has his meal from a plant-based supplement kind of like my green formula we have all your minerals and vitamins and phytonutrients and he has some amino acids just like my protein formula and then he has his meal to feel full and then he has his dessert to feel good so he gets the pleasure out of meetings not denying himself anything so it is he very similar to could tell more Berg in Norway that got the wheelchair guy who healed himself and walked 600 kilometers across Norway eating nothing but my green formula and protein formula and having some cashews and coconut oil to feel full very similar to what mom and rod is doing he has his nutritional supplement and then he has his heavier nuts and things which you can also get some protein and substance from so this is really inspiring notice he also said no stress really important because you will age and die if you have stress in your life so do what you can get the important bits of information from this because this is gold this guy’s taking it to the extreme and to show you what’s possible you will not waste away if you fast every day ok this guy’s only needing one meal a day we’re not even
