Longevity & Why I now eat One Meal a Day


Longevity & Why I Eat Once a Day
Nutrition & Our Hybrid Body In the 1950’s, my friend Bill was a very
gifted Engineer who made an extraordinary car. The car’s main fuel source was electricity,
and gasoline was to be put in whenever available. It was fine for the car to use gasoline every
other day or so, but the problem was that people ran it on gasoline nearly 90% of the
time. This resulted in the car breaking down frequently,
all the while Bill was trying to tell people “Use it the way it was designed!” Despite his advice, people continued to theorize
about how to properly use the car. Bill went bankrupt and left the Automotive
industry soon after. This situation my poor imaginary friend Bill
found himself in is quite like our modern Health Environment. How did eating get so complicated? Most of us just want to feel good, look good
and live a long life. You would think by now there would be a straightforward
consensus on what our eating habits should look like, but we’re faced with countless
trains of thought on the topic. Maybe we’re supposed to be doing the ABC
diet or XYZ diet or something in between? One of the first “diets” was proposed
by a man named George Cheyne in 1724. Now, on Amazon you can find over 50,000 different
books on the topic. Like Bill’s car, surely there is a simple
way we should be fueling our bodies that is most suitable for its design. Obviously we’re not engineered, but we Homo
Sapiens emerged around 200,000 years ago and the majority of that time, the food environment
could not have been anything like today’s food environment. Agriculture didn’t even exist for a good
190,000 years of that time. Not even the fruits and vegetables we have
today would have been similar as we hadn’t cultivated them to our liking. Just 700 years ago here’s what a banana
would have looked like. So what way of eating did we adapt to? The environment would have chosen our diet
rather than us. Your choices would have been to eat what was
available or be dead. The idea that our body must have adapted to
a certain ratio of macronutrients available in the environment is not novel; and recently
has become quite well known due to the “Paleo Diet”. However, what I’m getting at is our body
would have also had to have adapted to how often the food was available – there should
be a natural frequency of eating that promotes health and longevity. Where to start? The logic would be that more nourishment,
more food would make you healthier and live longer. But let’s take a look at this from the First
Principles method as described by Elon Musk: “It’s kind of mentally easier to reason
by analogy rather than from first principles. First Principles is kind of a Physics way
of looking at the world. And what that really means is you kind of
boil things down to the most fundamental truths and say ‘OK what are we sure is true?’
and then reason up from there. That takes a lot more mental energy.” So what do we know about longevity? Other than exercise, the word “superfood”
might come to mind. Maybe more Omega-3’s or some Red Wine or
making sure to take supplements and drink less alcohol. There are a lot of things that contribute
to longevity, but there is one method accepted by science that you can use to consistently
increase longevity. “If I take any organism on the planet earth
from yeast cells to spiders, insects, rabbits, dogs… and I reduce their caloric intake
by 30%, they live 30% longer. The only organism which has not yet been deliberately
tested by scientists are Homo-Sapiens!” Let’s start here. For some time, the conventional wisdom has
been that you need to get 3 balanced meals a day to stay healthy. Ever since I was a kid, “Breakfast, Lunch
and Dinner” seemed as natural as sleeping or going to the bathroom. Breakfast was the most important meal of the
day, I needed a healthy lunch to focus the rest of the school day and being sent to bed
without Dinner was child abuse. The situation is basically the same in Japan
where I now live, as with the rest of the world. If we want to reduce caloric intake to increase
lifespan, the only choice then is to eat less at each meal, because we need 3 meals, right? But where did this 3 meals a day idea come
from? As Abigail Carroll suggests in her book “Three
Squares: The Invention of the American Meal”: Eating three meals a day was basically invented
due to culture, When European settlers got to America, they found Native Americans were
basically just eating whenever they felt the urge to, rather than at specified times. The Europeans took their lack of defined eating
times as evidence that they were uncivilized and had them change. In short: The 3 meals a day paradigm is not
based off of our biological needs. How our environment designed us
In a Hunter Gatherer culture it wasn’t surprising at all to feast on a big catch, then survive
on very little or no food for an extended period of time until they were in need of
another big source of fat and protein. In fact, the environment up until now would
suggest that if we could not do that, we probably wouldn’t be alive to be reading about dieting. The Pirahã people, an indigenous hunter-gatherer
group of the Amazon Rainforest was extensively studied by an anthropological linguist named
Daniel Everett. He found they do not eat every day or even
attempt to do so. They were even aware of food storage techniques
yet never used them except to barter with Brazilian traders. When questioned about why they do not store
food for themselves they explained “I store meat in the belly of my brother”. Until the advent of Agriculture, eating 3
meals a day and in some cases even eating every day was a near impossibility. Some of you may be pointing to the fact that
the life expectancy in the Paleolithic era was much lower than now at around 33 years,
as a sign that our modern eating habits are healthier. However, infant mortality rate was a big factor
in bringing that number down. You have to understand that one of the effects
of modern civilization and technology is that you can be unresourceful or made up of weak
genetic material and not die. As Doug McGuff explains about the life expectancy
back then: “It didn’t really have anything to do with anabolic catabolic balance or long
term health benefits because there were older survivors and the fossil evidence of those
older survivors based on ligamentous attachments and bony assessment and bone mineral density
was: they were extraordinarily robust.” Glucose Metabolism & How “conventional wisdom”
screwed us The common misconception is that a stable
blood glucose is necessary for survival, which would biologically justify 3 meals a day. Bear with me through a bit of Biochemistry
to understand why constantly consuming Carbohydrates to maintain blood glucose is not only unnecessary
but can be a detrimental and vicious cycle. So, After you eat some carbohydrates- Bread,
Pasta, Candy, Whatever. Glucose enters the bloodstream and insulin
is secreted to distribute the glucose properly. Via an insulin receptor, glucose enters the
cells to produce energy. This can only happen at a certain rate, so
to overload the cell with glucose or have glucose sit in the bloodstream, 70 grams can
be stored in the liver and 200 grams in the muscle. So you have your morning bagel and some Frappa-
“Whatever you want, some vanilla bullshit latte cappa thing, you know whatever you got,
I don’t care.” and you’ve stored all the glucose you can store. So it has to go into your body fat. As well as storing it as energy, your body
puts it in your body fat because the fat cells have less complex machinery as the other cells. Too much glucose can bind to the proteins
and muck up the machinery of the cells in a harmful inflammatory process called Glycation. It’s kind of like pouring pancake syrup into
a car engine. The problem here is that if your energy levels
start to wane, you can’t tap the energy out of your stored body fat because the hormone
that does that- hormone sensitive lipase is sensitive to insulin. Insulin will not allow you to tap body fat
for energy. If you have a bunch of insulin sitting in
your blood from processing a bunch of glucose before and you need energy, you’re going to
get ravenously hungry and will need to jack your blood sugar up short term with a snack
or something to raise your energy levels again. This is why if you’re following the recommended
American diet, you’re usually going to be stuck in this loop of wanting to eat every
time your blood glucose drops and 3 meals a day will feel very necessary. Even Medical Doctor Peter Attia fell victim
to this: “Despite exercising 3 or 4 hours every single day and following the food pyramid
to the letter, I gained a lot of weight and developed something called ‘Metabolic Syndrome’
“ Ketosis to the rescue
If you stop eating glucose for about 10 to 12 hours, your glucose stores will deplete
and your body will start breaking down fat so that the liver can produce something called
Ketone bodies. Ketone bodies produce energy for your cells
through similar pathways as glucose but are much more stable, efficient and don’t cause
complications like we just talked about. You may have heard of this Ketosis state referred
to as “Starvation Mode” in school, but this by no means suggests you are about to
starve. I particularly dislike this term because it
suggests that glucose/carbohydrates is our body’s primary fuel source, when in fact
it is possible to live entirely without carbohydrates. “Humans have absolutely no requirement for
Carbohydrate. Not 1 gram do we require. We have this fabulous liver that produces
as much glucose as you require.” Case in point: A 456 pound 27 year old man
in Scotland fasted an incredible 382 days consuming only water and vitamin supplements. He lost 276 pounds and completed the fast
with no ill effects. He was technically in “Starvation mode”
this entire time and his body was using his stored body fat for energy. Quick note: Ketosis and Diabetic KetoAcidosis
are NOT the same thing. Several years back, when I first heard about
low carb diets, I was skeptical and frankly when I heard my close friend’s mother was
trying the Atkins diet, I was worried for her. However, after understanding the biochemistry
behind it, I started doing the ‘Paleo diet’. I felt great in general, had a better physique
with less effort and much more stable energy levels. The downside was it got kind of annoying to
have to plan my meals so much, so I would cheat a lot here and there. The Benefits of Fasting
Even after people were in environments where they could eat much more frequently, the concept
of fasting for health benefits has been around for some time. An Egyptian Pyramid Inscription from around
3800 B.C. reads “Humans live on one-quarter of what they eat; on the other three-quarters
lives their doctor.” Plato apparently fasted for greater mental
efficiency, the “Luther of Medicine” Philippus Paracelsus called fasting “the greatest
remedy” and Mark Twain suggested fasting to be more effective than any medicine. The Romans even found that they cure people
who were possessed with demons by shutting them in a room without food. To simplify an incredibly complex process,
aging in essence is the result of cumulative damage to your DNA. Professor of Genetics, David Sinclair and
his team found that not eating stimulates the Sirtuin proteins which are directly responsible
for DNA repair. Professor of Neuroscience Mark Mattson, at
John Hopkins University Neuroscience showed how fasting promotes the growth of new neurons
in the brain. This explains why fasting has been linked
to the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. This information got me excited about Intermittent
fasting. With intermittent fasting you’re not eating
for 16 hours of the day which gives your body time to deplete the glucose stores and start
burning fat as well as reap the benefits discussed above. So many sources are pointing to the key here
being that whether you are doing extended fasting, intermittent fasting or simply eating
less, you are giving your body a chance to deplete its Glucose stores and dip into ketosis,
leading to the health benefits discussed. I was keen on the fact that I could get similar
effects to Paleo with more leeway in my diet. The problem with Intermittent Fasting was
I found with myself craving food outside of the 8 hour eating period, and I still had
to be somewhat strict with what I ate (although not as strict as my 3 meals a day regimin) Upton Sinclair who was born in the the late
1800’s and lived to the swell age of 90, published a book in 1911 called “The Fasting
Cure”. The book was inspired by the personal accounts
of 250 people who cured some ailment with extended fasting. The ailments ranged from colds, headaches,
constipation to arthritis, valvular heart disease and cancer. Dr. Alan Goldhamer spoke about how in 2012,
a 42 year old patient cured her cancer (stage 3 follicular lymphoma) with a 21 day fast. All this opened me up to try my first week
long fast… but I ended up around the 4th day even though I didn’t feel particularly
bad. While I missed my goal and I didn’t really
feel all that different afterward, over the following days I started to notice something. I used to enjoy eating some refined sugar
crap here and there, but after the fast I wasn’t so interested. It was like it reset my eating preferences. Around this time I came across a book called
“Kuufuku ga hito o kenkou ni suru” – by Dr. Yoshinori Nagumo. The title means ”Hunger makes people healthy”. And it provides an incredibly compelling argument
for limiting yourself to one meal per day. It touched upon many of the things I’ve
talked about here, some things I didn’t and it dispelled some worries I had like malnutrition
and whatnot. (Also, It was easy to trust him since he’s
30 years older than me and looks younger than I do.) I decided to try eating once per day for 2
weeks. For 3 weeks prior to starting, I had been
showing my little sister around Tokyo while eating basically anything and everything that
looked good. I started the Nagumo plan the day after she
left and the first three days were definitely the hardest. When the clock hit around 11AM, I realized
I wasn’t getting the joy from eating that I was used to around this time of day and
started really wanting to eat. My stomach didn’t particularly hurt, it
was the equivalent of not being able to play video games when getting home from Middle
School. Around 4PM was when I was convinced that I
was really hungry and needed to eat. Waiting another 30 minutes until 4.30PM to
eat was like pushing through a last set of squats. The next two days were slightly easier, and
come the 4th day I realized I wasn’t looking at the clock thinking “Ah…Only 4 more
hours to go!”. A week later I decided to put the diet to
the test by doing a 50 kilometer bike ride to Atsugi from Tokyo. I hadn’t been working out all that much
and a usual bike ride for me was about 3 kilometers. It was unsurprisingly difficult, but I never
felt really physically weak. I had hunger pangs earlier than normal, but
I didn’t feel like I had less strength from a lack of food. This made me decide to stick with eating once
per day. It’s been a month since I started and I
feel great in general, my energy levels are very stable, I feel more focused and surprisingly
I have less problems with hunger compared to Intermittent Fasting. Even if I don’t eat the healthiest meal
I can now feel confident that my body will have more than enough time to empty out whatever
excess glucose or toxins I ingested. (The only time I do crave unhealthy food is
when I’ve had some alcohol.) Looking back, it’s hard to imagine having
to pile so much food into my stomach throughout the day. Other than the health benefits, one other
reason I do this is the same reason Steve Jobs wore basically the same thing everyday:
It makes choosing easier and it frees my brain up to focus on other things. At least For myself, the amount of new information
I get only changes my behavior by a small factor. For example if I increase my knowledge about
the detriments of alcohol by say… 60% maybe I’ll cut my intake by 30%. With this article alone I’m not expecting
you to suddenly start eating once per day, but hopefully you can start giving your body
a break and eat when you need to, not when the clock says you should. If you liked this, be sure to subscribe. I’m trying my best to have a new video out
at least every two weeks so stay tuned. You can see my last video here.

  1. I've been doing one meal a day for 1 month. Fasting 16 to 18 hrs. The best result I've had is a reduction in my Afib/irregular heartbeats. And losing a few pounds.

  2. So I did this last year and lost over 40 lbs. It was easy to do once my body got used to the new food intake expectations. What I especially liked was that it was mindless…I didn’t have to think about eating and planing meals. I decided to not get on the scale all the time and I just let things happen naturally. I found that the wt loss plateaus lasted longer but that I then suddenly dropped larger amounts of weight rapidly one time losing 9 lbs overnight. My memory and concentration improved and I had the energy I needed to get all my home projects done that summer. I have struggled with my weight since my 30’s (I’m 61 now) and have lost and gained more weight than I care to think about. I have found it very difficult to stick to anything where you have to count calories, or measure and weigh food. I have tried every fricken diet out there and have always regained the weight and then some. Unfortunately I fell off the intermittent fasting wagon last year around the Holidays when I got suckered into eating the 3 meals a day that all my holiday guests seem to require and regained all my lost weight along with 30 of it’s friends. So I am starting again and plan to really stick to it this time. I like the fact that I don’t have to constantly limit everything. I try to focus on low carb foods during the week but if the neighbors want to go out for pizza and beer I go with them guilt free. Of all the things I have tried, biologically this diet makes the most sense. I totally agree with the likelihood that humans did not evolve eating 3 squares. There are people that can tolerate that, you know, the skinny f$#&^%’ that seem to be able to eat anything, but the rest of us then fall prey to this notion that we must have 3 meals and suffer the consequences. Thanks for a very helpful and informative video. Now I’m going on to the roof to clean my chimney…

  3. The human lifespan has been increased to about its maximum of around 120 with help from modern medicine. Extreme dieting and fasting won't significantly break that barrier. Most people cannot, long-term, cut 30% calories without starting to binge eat over time. They become obsessed with food and their sex drive and hormones shut down as the body goes into conservation (starvation) mode. Starting young, a person might gain a decade but at a serious cost to quality of life. Brain aging doesn't change, so mental decline will continue unabated. Most people have gotten out of life what they want to by age 80. An extra 30 years only means a longer sendoff.

  4. i would not believe one goddam word elon musk (lone skum) says….i mean he says he put a tesla into space…..lmmfao

  5. i have started this about 3 months ago i have lost 40ib and still drink light beer every night. But it still worked, it is just a matter habit. 1 meal a day. it is a matter of ha
    bit

  6. Tried intermittent fasting for one day and found l wasn't hungry so start one meal a day. Lost 5 kilos in 2 months and I've been eating rubbish stupidly. Kebabs, fish and chips and pizza. If I'm only eating once a day in going to enjoy it!

  7. my friends call me crazy for only eating once a day. I've basically been doing it since childhood. It just always seemed to be a hassle to get something. I just feel so unfocused, sick and bloated when i eat more than one meal for a period of time.

  8. If I want to exercise regularly while doing this, should I workout before or after my only meal of the day? Also, do you have a set time for when you have your one meal or do you just wait till you're super hungry each day?

  9. What made me feel better and healthier was starting to just snack lightly throughout the day with no big meals. Veggies and meats fruits. The only dairy was cheese on a sandwich or burger or burrito (the only wheat as well). Definitely feel lighter more energy and cleaner. Also you'd be surprised at how much sugar affects you. Just like the video, I'm not interested in candy any more and very rarely eat anything sweet. Except IZZE sodas because it's the literal nector of the gods

  10. I want to eat for longevity but right now I have an incredibly low amount of body fat even though I eat upwards of 3000 calories a day. I'm trying to gain weight but my metabolism just burns through everything I eat. I'm hesitant to try reducing my caloric intake because my Body Fat Percentage is already below healthy levels. Any thoughts or advice?

  11. Muslims fast one month a year from dawn to dusk. And since they follow the lunar calendar, the fasting month of Ramadan can fall throughout the year with fasting days lasting anywhere from 16 hours in the summer to less than 10 hours per day in the winter.

  12. Keto is the best choice ive ever made my body. The pounds are falling off and im motivated to do more, for longer.

  13. I always enjoyed beer ( the only time I drink it) with certain foods like hot dogs, pizza, oysters or any of my 'treat myself' foods. When I would eat these foods without beer I did not care as much for them. So that works for me.

  14. how do you consume 2500 calories in one meal. its insane. this is just asking for issues with your digestive system, eh?

  15. Small meals all thru the day is better but that’s hard todo. Start with fresh and no processed foods, no
    Refined sugar, ultra processed crap, junk food, fast food. People
    Say eating healthy is expensive but I would argue that eating crap food is expensive. High fructose corn 🌽 syrup makes you addicted

  16. Interesting about that three meals a day thing. But what would you say to articles out there that says you are putting your body into starvation mode if you are not eating enough meals or enough food during each day.

  17. I love your channel and how informative it is without sounding obnoxious or speaking too fast that I can’t catch all the info!!!

  18. It's a known fact per leading doctors that the less one eats as they age, the less calories taken in, the longer they live! It's also another known fact that the late great American actor/comedian George Burns also lived to 100 because he ate very little as he got older. "Less is more" in more ways than one! Eat light…be light. Eat heavy…be heavy…common sense! Thanks for sharing~

  19. I've been eating Once a day for over 20 years, and my weight has been 165 to 180 lbs. and my waist 32" to 35" since I was 20 years old, also I'm like a fish drinking water, coffee, tea and juices all day. ( Eat Less Live More)

  20. If people want to try this, the best thing to help if you are struggling is some candy. Have a few small pieces of candy if you are really hungry. I sometimes get hungry mid day. I eat a few pieces, and I am not hungry until about 6, 7 or 8pm. I actually get to the point where I have no appetite and usually have to have a drink or use cannabis to have a desire to eat. Lost 70lbs without really trying in 1 year. Drinking water also helps.

  21. The Japanese live the longest & has less cancer than most according to studies…they eat rice daily, & I love stir fry & potatoes…can I lose weight if I keep eating those things but reduce it down to one meal…well as best I can that is.?

  22. People tend to not believe me when I tell them my age. Restricted places tend to ask me for ID even though I am about twice the legal age. Not long ago I was thinking to my self, maybe it has something to do with me rarely eating breakfast, first thing I eat is at lunch time around 11AM-1PM and I get up typically 6-7AM.

    This by far could be coincidence etc or based on my food consumption or lifestyle neither was particular healthy (smoking, drinking and too much fast food). However I do believe that 14-18 hours of fast has something to do with it. On a side note I recently cut off bread for few months and over all feel better, now I do eat it maybe once or twice a week in the form of burgers, but don't buy it for my home.

  23. I start doing this one meal a day months ago. All said here is the truth. I run half a marathon in less then 2 hours on a empty stomach while fasting for 2 days. Eating is overrated. I fought addiction in the past and when it comes to or way of eating in modern culture… I notice the same mechanics in the brain. We are not hungry, we are addicted.

  24. I have eaten once a day for 58 of my 64 years, It started out bc we were poor but I never felt like I needed to change. I eat just a normal size meal that an average person eats. I worked my job easily without breakfast or lunch. We didn't have free school lunches when I was a kid. American Society diet was based on a farmer diet, which is too much food for the average worker.

  25. One meal a day is also a great way to save on toilet paper! That savings can add up over one's extended lifespan and he can then invest it for added retirement income!

  26. Working people incl.busy housewives and growing kids need more fr and veg. throughout the day!. ditch the dairy and use omega 3 foods.

  27. To me this is old news. I've only been eating once a day since high school (once in a blue moon I'll have a small lunch) and that meal is supper. I'm 38 5'9 140LBS Italian and Irish, and all muscle. I also still get ID'd all the time when I'm clean shaved. I hardly ever get sick also. Last flu I had was maybe in 2014 and it lasted a day. In fact if I ever do not feel well it only last for a day and it's gone.

  28. how do you ensure you get all your macro and micro nutrients when eating only one meal a day? thank you for the thorough video. very informative

  29. Greetings,

    My experience with my kids and food. When I fed them every four hours, they were 'starving' after two hours, thus a snack. Later I learned that it was the 'all gone' feeling because of the food traveling through the system. I put them on two meals a day, 9am and 3pm. I virtually had to tell them it was time to eat as they would continue with their activities. So, before they dropped from weakness, I would make sure they ate. Meals were six hours apart. No problems!

  30. ngl i kinda wish i was fat so i could try this out but im afraid that if i do this i will lose weight, i like my body im happy with it but i just want to be sure that my 'insides' are healthy and not damaged by all the processed food

  31. I love this and learned so much. I am obese and I know I need to break the cycle. I was thinking about why we focused on food for three meals a day, I just started two days in in lowering my caloric intake and maybe skip a meal. I need to reset my body. Thank you so much, I am glad I ran across this.

  32. 1. You will live longer.
    2. Your digestive system will actually process .
    3. Body becomes less toxic and becomes it's own doctor.
    4. Inflammatory diseases, and that is most diseases, are cut tremendously. See No. 3.
    5. Clear mind comes naturally and your body not your mind chooses what you eat.
    6. A beautiful side effect is self discipline which shows up as a bonus.
    7. With the money you save on junk food, you can afford quality not quantity.

  33. 1 Bio individuality everyone is different. thank you for sharing what worked for you … and for the science behind it. What is healthy for one person can kill another. We must learn to listen to our own body. Intuition has gone out the window with the ingestion of what is NOT food…processedk, dead boxed non foods. We need to come back to eating healthy whole foods. I appreciate what you said here….except for the excuse you make that you can even eat unhealthy things as long as you eat one meal a day. That is not what you want to do nor teach others. Not only timing, but quantity and Quality…..count. To stuff yourself with that one meal is to cause the body to work too hard all at once and traumatizes a body that has fasted all day. Have some respect for the body Feed it Healthy things, not crap just because you eat one meal a day…make that meal be something the body needs…..and loves, not your taste bud proclivities.If one is ravenous at that one meal and eats like a pig….until satiated…then it is not healthy.

  34. Homosepian are the invention of Jesuits writing story. This mean, they write the story and is teach in school, after wile, if you are interest in the true, then you find out is all lies.
    Even Albert Einstein has credit because of the Jesuit, in stead of buying him a hair brush, he receive a recognition by the Jesuits. Now Tesla was for real, but just now he receive recognition. This Jesuits are a very friend of the Bush family.

  35. Help me understand something.

    You mentioned 16 hrs and 8 hrs split.

    Do you eat throughout the 8 hrs and then eat nothing but water during the 16 hrs?

    4 yrs ago I switched my diet to eating all the time (fruits, vegetables, nuts and oats). I eat essentially every single hour in small bits.

    Are you proposing eating a day of food in one single 30 min sitting, or eating throughout an 8 hr period and nothing after for 16 hrs?

  36. A friend closed to me have used also this “Zοtοku Weebly” blood pressure alternative I recently found on Gοοgle. His blood pressure level was stroke level 158/120. The outcome of the program can be seen straight away specially if you eat the correct foods. It has slowly and gradually dropped and Fourteen days later with much healthier eating his blood pressure is 128/84.. .

  37. You know I watched with interest until you started with we were not 'engineered'….LIKE HELL we were not engineered! and then you start showing apes and half apes and a missing link that doesn't exist! and everything else you say becomes obsolete…. KEEP YOUR EVOLUTION THEORY where it belongs…in the realm of THEORY… You make many people NOT WATCH your videos because of the crap you push right in the start…

  38. I have been eating one meal a day for about 5 years. It makes a huge difference to how you feel though and my body weight is spot on with no real effort. eat a well balanced meal slowly and eat a variety of fresh foods, especially breads and hers/spices as they contain micro nutrients that you need. I'm never really hungry and I really enjoy food. Leave highly processed crap alone, it is low quality food.

  39. Great video! I have cut down to two meals, small ones a day, keto based and generally feel much better. Hoping it helps my menopausal hot flushes too! Ghandi was a big experimenter with diet and fasting, so you might want to grab his book and give them a look over.

  40. Hi people I'm the o e that came oit with this idea, 20 years ago before youtube or any other person even tought about it. I live in the bay area california, and i have not get sick in 15 years no fever no flu. I could not eat in two days i had run for hours with eating nothing im the master of my body.

  41. Nope Nope Nope the 3x meal rule came from the HOLY ROMAN empire to structure their Serfs (slaves!) to spend more time in the field yielding wealth for the ruling class. if you sill do the 3x meal diet YOU STILL THINK LIKE A SLAVE!

  42. Thank you. I'm doing intermittent fasting with 5 hour eating window. Think I need to bounce it up to water only fasting for 4-5 days once a month.

  43. Great vid, but it's funny that such a logical mind created this video… And he still believes the fairytale of evolution! Maybe Santa will bring him more logic this year.

  44. I ate one meal a day for 4mths…the 1st couple of days I started off with 2 meals a day then 1 meal a day at exactly the same time every day…and I ate the same food every day (by choice) A wrap or a chapati with beans with pesto or tahini tomato cheese and avocado and yoghurt and berries. I never got bored with the same food and never felt hungry. If I was 5mins late eating at my designated time my stomach would start rumbling. To begin with i had chicken with my wraps but then I got so hooked on the beans and after a week I had no desire for meat. I felt great the whole time…
    I stopped when my routine got out of whack… my daughter moved back home. But I've started doing it again…have heaps more energy.
