Eat, Fast And Live Longer With Michael Mosley

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Here is a link to a must see movie.

WoW !!! I found this must see movie on alternative day fasting very interesting. Michael Morlesy shows how his lab values improved, he lost weight, and has a healthier possible outcome.

By doing the diet he reduced his chances of getting cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. They showed a man in the beginning who had been on the diet for awhile. They said he was in his mid 50's, but he looked like he was in his 30's when contrasted to Michael Mosley.

Sometimes I feel like the cat above, not succeeding at dieting. Sigh. I must try harder.

It's time for a change. If you haven't seen this movie, you must. If you can't afford to purchase it, you can watch it for free.

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead full movie has been posted on youtube. It's full length is available to watch for free. Here is the link or do a search on youtube if it doesn't work.

It's tempting to sign up for the reboot, get a fresh start on dieting, get tons of nutrition in.

Could I live on this for a month? Or is there more choices? How does one not feel hungry? How much weight could I loose?

Will it help decrease the MS symptoms? I guess I won't know unless I try it.

Mean Green Juice Recipe from the movie "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" with Joe Cross:

This makes about enough mean green juice for two people, or enough for a super large glass. 1 cucumber 1 good bunch of kale greens 4 celery stalks 1/2 lemon (rind ok) one small knob (about inch or less) of fresh ginger root 2 granny smith apples (gala is good too)

I guess it's time to make a choice, its time to focus on making a major change.

On the positive side, juicing breaks cravings for processed foods.

If I were taking the MS medications that suppress the immune system which caused a tumor in me I would be spending $4-5000 a month. LOL. Disability won't even give me a fraction of that a month to live on. It only made me feel sicker. I know the answer is not to create more illness with shots and pills.

Supplements are expensive. I paid for a nine month supply in November, so I will run out in August. In the beginning I felt better, but as time went on I feel just as bad as when I started.

So it's time to get extreme. I feel like if I don't, my health will continue to decline. Drugs made no difference. Supplements a little bit, but so far I haven't found the answer. Maybe juice will be the answer.

My kitty continues to do better. She is not totally healed, but she does look better. She is eating more food on her own. I stopped force feeding her since her intake is good. Yesterday she caught 2 birds only ate the head of one. The other one fed the homeless cats in the neighborhood.

Sorry about the rambling. I am looking for a change in what I am doing again, searching for options, ideas. I have been doing juicing up to a quart and a half a day which has helped me a bit, but I am looking for more. My already healthy diet needs more improvements.

    Thank you for sharing! I tried Juicing a few months ago and noticed a difference in my blood pressure and cholesterol. Didn't have a need for medicine while doing it. I need to get back to it!

    I am so, so, so happy that your kitty is doing much better and eating on own now. And even catching birds... emoticon

I have had folks tell me about different kinds of juicing. It is suppose to be good for you, in some ways. But I don't know. Like someone else commented, I'm leary. But I am going to go watch the movie.

If your going to try this juicing thing, I wish you LOTS more success then what you have had with the medications & viatmins/herbs.

    Yay Kitty for doing better!

I will say one thing about juicing. Don't fear the hunger. After day 5 I can tell you that I force myself to drink more than the 64 oz because I am not hungry. And the feeling of being healthy makes you get over the rough spots.
And have juice made ahead of time, so if hunger strikes you can just quench it! emoticon

    I will say being on a GF, Vegan diet has really helped me with my inflammation and other symptoms from my auto-immune. I also take supplements. I have a by the day pill thing I fill up each week. I take turmeric which is a good anti-inflammatory and also that one that is good for joints.. can't remember the name. but it helps when I take that. Move free is one brand name of it but I take a generic.
I take a bunch of different kinds of vitamins and it does seem to help me. I also make my smoothie most days that has spinach, frozen fruit, and brown rice protein powder, and almond milk.

    There is a fast diet spark team too. There's only about 20 of us, but we're trying hard. I've been doing it for about 6 weeks. I've only lost a couple of pounds, but I feel very well and it hasn't been particularly hard. I'm more doing it for the reduction in cancer risk rather than weight loss, so maybe I'm not so careful on my non fast days.

  You should look up what Montel Williams has been doiing to help and work with his MS and how he stays healthy. He's been doing very well for himself and the juicing has a lot to do with that. He's got some great resources to help others figure out what might help them.

    My husband and I have been doing the 5:2 Fast Diet for three weeks now. I've been losing 1 lb/week. Compared to the .2 lbs/week I was losing.

The first two times, I did get a headache. But since then, it's really not been that difficult.

You'll find what works for you.

    Due to heart failure I can't do more than a day fast at a time, but still I think several times a week will do me good.

I have found that drugs ONLY deteriorate health. I do think there are times they are absolutely needed, but in my life, if I hadn't taken them I wouldn't be dying of heart failure. Now I take nothing but my Armour Thyroid med, compounded hormones, and supplements. I'm still not doing so good, but much better than the 6 feet under they predicted for me 13 years ago, so yeah, I'll take it.

    I do believe in the power of smoothies, but not sure I could do them all the time! I have a Vitamixer and use it for all kinds of healthy drinks. Like it better than a juicer (which I also own) because you keep the skins and pulp which are loaded with vitamins.

Do keep us posted; hopefully both you and kitty will be "right as rain" before long!
