Went on keto high fat diet 10 years ago with as much fat as possible.
About the same as the high protein diet that I used back in the 60s for weightlifting I felt my brain convert to running on fat.
A great improvement over the low fat diet I used for 30 years for marathon running.
My triglycerides were sky high and HDL very low I should have been dead but burned up excess by exercise.
Now my triglycerides are below my HDL that is very high and I feel much better.
Maybe the best blood lipids the doctors have ever seen.
Just by the keto diet.
I have been mostly vegetarian since a teenager on that fruit nut farm,
and have exercised hard - usually 6+ hours per day, every day, except high stress, travel days, lack of sleep.
Exercise burned up excess sugars and carbohydrates that would have killed me.
Go to the big college, take 1 class on cooking and 1 class on weight lifting every semester.
I walked by big freshman biology class first day of class and saw on board detailed sugar cancer biochemistry on the board as class was leaving.
Better than anything I have ever seen on TV or computer.
USA dying because they lack facts an 18 year old should know about biology.
Eat in the cafeteria where they always have big piles of vegetables for health fanatics.
They cook for you in large batches cheap and easy, save you time for exercise, study.
Phoenix has a huge college and good medical.
My breakfast is light - never hungry but need hydration.
Green tea with milk and roasted sesame seeds for immune system neurological
A few peanuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews, filberts, sunflower seeds.
1 sardine for omega 3 oil
1 oyster for zinc immune system everybody deficient
1 t natto for vitamin K and probiotics.
1 T avocado occasionally.
1 boiled egg occasionally should get more.
1 raw carrot if time
1 raw apple if time
1/4 stick butter occasionally but cheese is better, more protein helps long workouts.
Usually have to get out the door to school or gym as fast as possible so skip most of my list.
Walk 10+ miles per day while reading, listening to radio, watching 2 TVs and thinking about math.
Ketogenic diet you burn your own fat as the body is set up to do.
Fat is a huge organ pumps energy into blood as needed thru the day.
If you feel hungry you are doing something wrong.
Dinner is boiled vegetables, lentils, beans, brown rice, steel cut oats,
Spices especially turmeric.
Collards, Cabbage, Broccoli, Bok Choy, my favorite greens.
Peppers Hatch New Mexico
Raw garlic chop on top
Yogurt plain unsweetened "two good" best brand low lactose
Add butter, sour cream, palm oil, coconut oil, avocado, to boost fat.
Fat helps absorb vitamins and minerals and protect gut lining and slows down absorption of dangerous carbohydrates to a speed metabolism can handle.
Occasionally wild caught sardines, tuna, salmon, for protein but beware of toxic mercury overdose.
Smaller fish have less mercury - Tuna too large.
Canned fish only as most frozen fresh is farmed and/or counterfeit expensive.
Canned protects their brands if it is a good brand.
Sardines small cheap so better low mercury.
Check label avoid Communist China.
Vegetables should be cooked or peeled to avoid e coli etc. (Chinese cook all their food)
Never beef, pork, chicken, meats,… most is GMO hormone toxins...
Juice lacks fiber needed for immune system.
Modern people get sick mostly because of lack of fiber.
Massive amounts of fiber are needed for immune system, gut microbiome, prevent auto-immune disease, etc.
Fiber is also very cheap, in all green vegetables, carrots, radish, anything hard to chew.
Takes time to eat.
Cheap but grow your own to avoid pesticides.
Carbohydrates and sugars may be ok after long exercise because muscles are depleted of glycogen and can grab all the fructose and sugars out of the blood before they attack your tissues.
Aging is caused by cross linking of proteins by Carbohydrates.
Sugars cause aging 7 times faster than Carbohydrates.
Alcohol is a sugar slightly processed by yeast to be psycho-toxic.
Fructose is fertilizer for cancer cells as discovered by Nobel prize in Germany 1924.
Prevent or cure cancer by complete elimination of Fructose.
Sugar is half fructose, corn syrup is worse, 16 words for sugars, more for flours.
Sugars are very cheap, dumped into all processed foods that idiots eat / drink every meal nowadays.
Why cancer was rare 100 years ago but now almost #1 killer.
Genes have not changed in 100 years.
It is all bad diet and driving cars instead of walking.
My low fat diet completely eliminated hydrogenated vegetable oil, margarine, etc.
My high protein diet before that also eliminate all oil additives.
I converted to mostly saccharine instead of sugar in elementary school got nausea from all the sweets parents ate.
Then by age 18 was off all artificial sweeteners and colorings, etc.
I Dislike Sweets, Salt, sour, bitter, cheap additives,…
I can often taste chemicals and they are hard to avoid.
Plain natural organic food tastes better.
I have not been very sick since 2nd grade or miss class or work or military or even late to class due to illness.
I would move to Phoenix except it is too hot and too big.
Big cities have too much traffic that causes air pollution.
Smog is a huge danger.
Heat combines with smoke and chemicals to make it even worse.
I think it is ozone that I have trouble with.
The UofAZ university is huge and good enough,
and Mayo clinic is good,
mild winters but no beach.
Flagstaff is too cold.
Prescott has big VA and maybe the best air and weather in AZ but not much else.
Tucson may be better - no so big, but has a big university and the main medical college.
Oregon has cold, wet, mold.
You can buy machines to control temperature and humidity somewhat but then trapped indoors.
Honolulu is the best year round why people live longer there.
Keep windows open fresh air year round.
Indoor pollution may be worse than outdoor pollution.
I have been trying to avoid driving since age 16.
Or at least minimize.
Hard to do, most cities poorly designed, spread out.
Driving is addicting, catastrophic for health, destroys IQ.
Stressful and a complete waste of time.
Like TV and phones driving around flashes lights into the eyes causing stimulation and spurts of dopamine in the brain causing addiction and destruction of neurons.
Can you tell me what you eat for meals?
Do you do the same thing for breakfast every day.
I often do green juice every morning early and work in kefir or yogurt closer to bedtime.
I struggle with variety.
I use to do broccoli for greens but juice is easier.
I need to keep greens the same for my INR due to my blood thinner medication.
I was doing oatmeal and Apple syrup for breakfast.
An apple with almond butter or almonds.
Pretty bored with cooking!
Not a huge meat eater.
Love sweet potatoes and yams and squashes and zucchini with some cheese sometime.
Love spit pea and vegetable soup and chili.
My weaknesses are I like cornbread and cracker with them.
Can't do soy at all without a headache.
Pretty good about few sweets.
I'm just bored with mealtimes.
I do eat nuts and nutbutter on toast sometimes for a meal or guacamole or avocado or minus on toast or with a few chips.
I don't do tons of fruit like I use too as too much fructose seems to make me sick.
Hate not being able to devour my melons in the summer as before!
Anyway, hope you are doing well and I hope you have a terrific Birthday!
You have your health
So that's a real plus.
Arizona is helping my lung disease remain stable like Nevada.
I am as far east of Phoenix and civilization as I can get and still have medical and shopping nestled under the Superstion mountains with very little traffic.
I am in Gold Canyon but soon moving to Apache Junction a few miles north.
My huge slider frames the beautiful mountains.
Many hiking trails are nearby.
I have a great guest room so come through on your way to see Vicky if you can get away.
I realize trips are getting harder and garder as we age.
I hate freeways and crazy drivers but
I won't have to drive or walk but up to a mile or 2 for everything I need including multiple churches and grocery stores and a huge farmers market with fresh produce.
I chose this location carefully.
Way too many impaired drivers.
I an moving to a senior park with great gym and activities.
But mainly I like the guard gated security and safe place to bike and walk.
It has a golf course but I have only played a few times in my entire life.
Tons of tennis players also there but come April most go back east or to Canada til November.
The park will only be at about 10% so quite nice for me!!
Hot though but early mornings are goid!
Glad to hear Vicky is feeling better physically.
Hoping she can muster up some mental stamina for her long haul treatments.
I'm sure that will come as she probably is still stunned by her diagnosis.
Becky did a long term fight and had alot of good times during her battle.
Hopefully Vicky can do even better with newer treatments.
Did you ever get tested for the BRCA1 mutation?
Men are affected also. John and I both are both carriers.
Praying Jim isn't.
It's a 50/50 thing.
Dad and your mom and I think Uncle Bob all were carriers.
One of his daughters died from breast cancer.
I don't think James was a carrier as I don't believe any if his 3 daughters were affected.
No way to know about Clifford.
Because of Uncle Bills Pancreatic cancer I think he was a carrier also.
