This means it is not the calories alone that matter

The Fast Diet

buy moncler jackets, an intermittent fasting plan.

I was out with friends recently, and as can cheap moncler coats for women often happen when women get together, the topic of the latest diets came up. Two of the women confessed they had started the 5:2 Diet, or the Fast Diet, and were both moncler outlet 3 weeks in. One had lost 3 lbs, and one 5 lbs. Sounded interesting.

Several days later, I happened to catch a one hour documentary on TV from BBC Horizon called “Eat, Fast, Live Longer” featuring reporter Michael Mosley. His quest was to find ways to lose weight and to try to live longer all without drastically changing his lifestyle. No pills, no money, just with food. Or lack there of!

cheap moncler The program starts off as he goes to womens moncler jackets a marathon race in London, where he meets a 101 year old man, on no medication, never needed moncler coats cheap surgery, and only took up running when he was into his 80′s. He claims his perfect health is only due to one thing. His diet. His method? He reports to eating smaller portions, roughly half an adult portion, for every meal. He basically lives on children’s portions. Recently a new theory has emerged. Experimentation in animals shows that severely restricting moncler jackets food allows moncler coats for men rats to live much, much longer, when compared to well fed rats.

This would mean: calorie restriction=longevity.

The only example of this in humans was observed during the Drought and moncler outlets usa Great Depression moncler jackets canada of the 1930s. People were underfed. Severely. Yet life expectancy increases by a remarkable 6 years during this moncler jackets toronto period.

Washington University moncler outlet canada is researching a group of people who have been severely calorie moncler jackets for women restricting for a 10 year moncler jackets kids period. The doctor following them claims they almost present like a different species.

cheap moncler jackets Mosley had to see moncler coats sale this for himself. He visited a man, Joe, roughly his own height, and age(early 50′s), who has followed a 1090 calorie diet for 10 years. Mosley confesses to averaging about 2300 discount moncler outlet calories daily for the same period. They both undergo medical tests to compare.

moncler mens jackets Mosley’s results are first. Weight (180lbs vs 134lbs), balance on one cheap moncler jackets wholesale foot (6.59 second vs 45 seconds), body fat (28% vs 11.5%). Mosley’s abdominal fat comes in at a whopping 30%, discount moncler jackets and in his words, he never considered himself very moncler jackets outlet overweight. This abdominal fat puts him at high risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes. “Joe could not have heart disease with results like these”, the doctor reports. “Calorie restriction to this level could cure Mosley of the high risk of developing these serious diseases in as little as one year”, the Dr claims.

moncler outlet sale Mosley knows he could never stick to a severely calorie reduced diet.

moncler outlet online Low IGF1 Reduces the Risk of 7 CancersHis research then leads him to Los Angeles, where scientists are doing research on mice and their Insulin moncler outlet location Like Growth moncler jackets men Factor 1 ( IGF1). The lower the IGF1, the longer one lives. About 40% longer.

moncler sale outlet A subset of the population in Equador cheap moncler jackets has been found to have naturally very low levels of IGF1. These people are very small in stature, but they do not get diabetes or cancer, despite poor lifestyle choices smoking, drinking, being overweight, eating a generally poor diet. Scientists believe the DNA in these people can repair itself quicker than average population, which allows the body to heal itself. Low IGF1 is definitely a good thing.

How does one reduce IGF1, you ask? Quite simply, fasting. Within 24 hrs of fasting IGF1 significantly reduces. Mosley’s IGF1 reading starts at 28. This puts him at a high risk for 7 cancers including prostate (which his father died of). moncler jackets cheap Water, black tea, one 50 calorie cup soup per day is the only food permitted.

Mosley buy moncler jackets toronto describes this fast as extremely difficult to stick to, and in fact the Doctor assisting him with this part of the moncler coats for women program reports this should be done under medical supervision. The first day was tough. He sat with film crew as they ate dinner.

moncler outlet store Testing for the liver reading of IGF1 halved after the 4 day fast. Mosley was encouraged, but knew he could not repeat the 4 day fast. It was torture, and no way to live his life. Blood Glucose levels dropped from moncler coats outlet 110 to 80, reducing his diabetes risk.

moncler outlet The Doctor confirms, that unless he switches moncler outlets uk to a lower protein, plant based diet, moncler coats the results would not last. Not to mention, he would need to moncler outlet store do the 4 day fast every other month.

Mosley decided he could not live that way, despite the drastic reduce of risk of many diseases.

cheap moncler sale Alternate Day Fasting (ADF)His quest continued to see if there is a less challenging way to change these numbers without radically changing his lifestyle. Women would eat 400 500 calories/day and men 500 600 calories/day for fasting days. One meal around lunchtime.

Feed day, they could moncler outlet woodbury eat whatever they wanted. Trial suggests they lost more weight, decreased cheap moncler jackets outlet LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and decreased blood pressure, compared to controls. Alternate Day Fasting (ADF), sounded appealing. Mosley decides to give it a try.

Mosley questions the feed days. Recent studies compared one group eating high fat choices, and one low fat on feed day. They both consumed roughly Official Moncler Outlet the same number of calories on the feed day, and no difference was found between their results. This then allows people to choose any foods they like on feed day, even fast food. Mosley wonders if this may encourage bingeing on moncler outlet uk feed days, but Varadya’s research shows people rarely gorged on feed day. In fact, once the study was underway, she found people only ate about 110% of what was expected, not 180% or more.

cheap moncler outlet Mosley was impressed at moncler outlet ny the amount of food he could consume on a fast day if he chose extremely low calorie vegetables or broth based soup. Much more satisfying than the 50 calories on the 4 day fast. Research show that consuming 25% of the regular feed day is enough of a restriction to be considered a fast. That is why 500 calories is acceptable for females, and the aim of feed day would be 2000. It is moncler outlet online not necessary to count the feed day calories though.

monlcer down jackets Again, Mosley wasn’t sure this was a lifestyle he could keep up. was Baltimore, at the National Institute of Aging, to learn about the affects of aging on brain. He meets a researcher there who feels fasting may moncler jackets outlet online delay the onset of aging brain function, or Alzheimer’s. Mice fed the typical American fatty diet with glucose, developed Alzheimer roughly in their 50′s(human equivalent years), but the intermittent fasting mice developed it in their 80′s. When fructose was exaggerated, they developed it in their 30′s.

Brains of moncler coats for cheap fasting mice had new best moncler neurons growing new nerve cells, moncler jacket outlet when they were hungry. Fasting stresses brain matter, like exercise stresses muscles. Alternate day fasting has better affect on brain function, then the same number of calories spread out equally every day. This means it is not the calories alone that matter, moncler outlet usa but the stress of the fast. The doctor points out this theory has not yet been tested in humans.

cheap moncler coats It doesn’t matter when you eat your calories on the fast day. Mosley prefers a bigger breakfast, usually 2 eggs and a piece of ham. He then drinks plenty of water, black tea, black coffee all day long, then finishes the day with a moncler jacket online massive amount of vegetables, and a small piece of fish. Make sure to spread the fast days out during the week, so they are not consecutive. Mosley preferred Monday, Thursday, but changes them if he has a social engagement that would interfere with this plan.

moncler sale He did the 5 2 diet, and lost 14 lbs in 5 weeks, 20 lbs in 9 weeks, decreased his blood sugar by 50%, significantly decreased cholesterol and visceral fat. 27% body fat to 19.1%. IGF1 dropped by 50% (same as on the 4 day fast) which reduces the risk for 7 cancers. He was very pleased with the results, and found the diet very easy to stick to, because he knew cheap moncler when he was fasting, the next day would have no restrictions. Minimal will power required! So pleased that he wrote the book, to explain moncler jackets on sale it all.
