So in one day:

 

Breakfast

A smoothie consisting of a handful of spinach, a handful of kale, heaps of flaxseed, 1 whole avocado, a cup of coconut water, a mix of hemp seed; more flaxseed; pumpkin seed and sunflower seed as well as a handful of blueberries and one whole banana. A heaped tablespoon of Glycine as well.

 

Lunch

Baked salmon, steam vegetable mix (mostly green vegetables), and sweet potato

 

Dinner

Indian style vegetables with olive oil, cooked with a whole host of indian spices with yogurt on the side. 

 

Supper

2 large red apples, with a large handful of black vine grapes, small portion of goji berries, cocoa nibs, walnuts and brazil nuts. With Astragalus tea and a heaped tablespoon of Glycine.

 

My reason for this diet is that I combine the best bits of other diets from around the world rather than limit myself to one health strategy. And I utilise epidemiological data which shows the benefits of pescetarian diet and high vegetable consumption. The is consumed in an 8 hour period due to my 16/8 IF.

 

This is similar to mine :)

 

I've changed mine again recently too.

 

Breakfast

Smoothy (Frozen blueberries, half a frozen banana, handful of kale, tablespoon of flaxseed, water, coconut milk, astragulas/maca/spirulina powder, teaspoon of coconut oil, cinnamon powder and fresh ginger).

1 Boiled egg with a mixture of tomato paste, turmeric and olive oil together. Half a squeezed lemon with apple cider vinegar in water. Curcumin, Carnosine & pomegranate extract and sometime HA.

 

Lunch

Usually Avocado, Watercress, mixed beans, pickled beetroot and sometimes smoked salmon.

 

Drink: Water & White Tea. Maybe coffee with coconut milk.

 

Snack: Peanut Butter & fruit (Strawberries or an apple) and pumpkin seeds and two brazil nuts. Two squares of 80-90% dark chocolate.

 

Dinner: Ranges really. Tomato based pasta meals, salmon with brown rice and veggies. Some cacao Nibs.

 

 

I must admit, that is quite similar! You do seem to have a very healthy diet going there!  :)

 

I'm going to pinch a few ideas, and mix my astragalus in my green smoothie. It should soften the taste of all the Kale and Spinach. Not personally a fan and I tend to chug it down  :wacko: . Can I just ask, How does raw ginger taste in the smoothie? and Do you have a way on milling the flaxseed? 

 

So glad I found someone that eats similar to me on here!   :-D

Some frozen yogurt, Strawberries, A cantaloupe and Dark chocolate for breakfast.

 

Today was In-n-Out Cheat day again, so I had two double doubles from there for lunch.

 

For Dinner, Seaweed and Cheddar Cheese Omelette and plate of Steamed Broccoli and Salmon. 

 

NOT TOO SHABBY! 

 

If you're craving junk food, that is a sign that there is something wrong with your diet. Your body is starving for nutrients. The only way to solve this is to eliminate all carbohydrates and eat at least 5 tbs of coconut oil a day. Carbohydrates are quick "energy." You need fat for longevity. You need to eat less protein and more fat. Fat will feed the brain. I went through this myself. I have no cravings now. The ketogenic diet is very healing

 

The only thing bad about that day was the buns on the burgers.

 

Period. 

 

If you knew it was was bad, why did you do it? Are you addicted to the burger? No you aren't. It's not because if you had fed your body with the essential fats and proteins for satiety you would have thought more clearly. You aren't addicted because you consciously understand the consequences of it.  You do this to avoid facing the the truth of your past, where you have suffered traumas. You indulged in a chemical pleasure for transient amnesia of your problems, which only sabotages your greater plan. These series of events are acted out daily because of your fear of the future, which is the past. How do you heal from your past abusers? Through a series of fasts with a ketogenic diet in between until nirvana is reached.

I recommend reading the book Be Here Now by Ram Dass. It will help you with your health journey, and more importantly the reason why you're here.

 

 

I'll tell you what, the organic fresh beef is not an issue at all. As I said, the only issue was the buns. 

 

And since my current body fat for the past couple months has been about 11-12% with barely working out I hardly think I am doing anything that bad in my dietary schematic. 

 

95% of my diet is low carb paleo. Once in a while I eat rice or Quinoa or some other grain but it is rare. The In-N-Out is a  cheat I have been doing either once a week or once every other week. But it's not even that bad of a cheat, considering it's fresh and the meat is apparently organic. 

 

The rest of the time I am eating fresh salads, steamed vegetables, organic turkey, chicken or some kind of fish like Tilapia, Salmon, etc. 

 

I enjoy some spiritual insights but relating it to diet is not always the best idea. I think health and spirituality are definitely relatable in some way but not exactly in the way you're outlining. 

 

I believe working on your diet from the spiritual angle backward may not be the best idea. But working on spirituality and diet in their separate and respective ways and then having the two meet in the middle to help your your being is most advisable.

I think the trend toward reducing beef consumption is probably the best idea. 

 

However, I do believe that beef contains vital nutrients that help to optimize our health in the long term. So perhaps eating it once or twice a month is a good idea, just to make sure your body feels what it's like to get those enzymes, nutrients and what ever else you cannot get from fish, chicken and other white meats. 

 

But that is just a prospective notion. Eating beef every day may not be a great idea.

Thanks for the advice but I really do believe that red meat should be avoided at all costs simply because of the epidemiological studies showing it elevates cancer rates and increases the risk of heart disease. For me personally, the nutrient profile of beaf isn't so unique. 

 

But thanks for the advice!  :-D

Today I ate nothing. I'm not fasting for health, since I'm already at the peak(Although, I definitely am getting healthier from this). I'm fasting for my prayer. There are too many people on longecity using neuro-toxic drugs and eating unhealthily. I hope that somehow I'll be able to help everybody here.

I mainly eat red meat for the zinc and its higher levels of some carninutrients. I try to eat 80g of red meat a day (or oysters) for zinc, as well as plenty of low mercury fish.

I would mostly agree with you. But my understanding (and this is just from what I read) is that the epidemiology on red meat was from processed red meats? 

 

And I am only saying this to be devils advocate here. 

 

I have been predominately eating fish, chicken and turkey for the past couple years and just this year experimented with eating red meat a couple times a week for about 4-5 months. I ultimately feel better eating mostly fish, chicken and turkey.

 

That being said the nutrients contained in red meat should not be ignored. Talking about L-Carnosine and more specifically the enzymes. 

 

The former can be supplemented.

I've recently begun tracking my food intake with a new Instagram account dedicated as a food journal. Yesterday, I had the following:

 

1 pound mixed greens salad blended into a smoothie (with turmeric, spices, and raw nuts) + a bowl of berries ~ 250 calories

2 slices of Tofurky with tomato, basil, garlic, and crushed walnuts ~ 150 calories

some pineapple chunks ~ 70 calories

1.5 cup vegan chili ~ 400 calories

1/4 cantaloupe ~ 60 calories

banana, oranges, and apple ~ 300 calories

baked tofu ~ 160 calories

almost forgot - vegan soy cherry chocolate ice cream ~ 250 calories

 

Total caloric intake: 1,640 calories, quite a bit over my daily 1,230 calories requirement (according to my scale) :|o

 

I'm primarily vegan, but will have eggs and dairy occasionally. I try to be plant-based and whole foods, though I hope that science will lead us to optimal personalized nutrition in the future!

 

This is fun! Will update tomorrow. If you're interested in following what I eat, follow me on Instagram.

Let me recap: on a single day you ate a salmon filet, four sausages and two cheeseburgers?

 

Sorry to say that such a diet would be more appropriate to post on "ShorteCity"...

Wrong.

 

Eight Sausages. 

 

And don't forget the steamed vegetables. 


Also, the Burgers were grass fed and had no buns.

 

Haha

 

I wanted to revisit this post because that was just a brief experiment I was doing for a few months. Ya know, eating what ever the fuck I wanted (almost) to see the results.

 

Nothing really happened but my stomach started getting bloated and I decided to go back to mostly vegetables, some clean protein, good fats and very few carbs.

 

I'm hitting the elliptical again. 

 

My Stomach is shrinking.

I'm only eating one meal per day for now, I'm also vegan, and usually I eat in a four hour window. This day is fairly typical for me lately (during these past few months anyway). I vary it up, but don't deviate from whole food plant based, much of it raw or steamed.

4 cups raw spinach
4 oz raw broccoli sprouts
2 oz raw alfalfa sprouts
0.5 cup raw beets
0.5 cup raw carrots
2 cups cooked broccoli
1 cup cooked kale
0.5 cup hummus
30g sunflower seeds
15g walnuts
170g raspberries
170g blackberries
2 kiwi fruit
454g strawberries
439g canned, low-sodium garbanzos
2tbsp EVOO (Melgarejo Hojiblanca: https://amphoranueva...product&id=183)
20oz iced black coffee

Roughly 1,820/kcal
89% RDA
Shortfalls are B12; Choline (70%); Calcium (86%); Sodium (27%); Zinc (95%) plus god knows what else...

Macros: Carbs: 167g; Fat 71g; Protein: 70g
53/33/13 (c/f/p). Since drinking the Valter Longo coolaid I've cut back on protein (which was all whole food vegan plant anyway, so who knows...) Methionine today was 0.8g (136% RDA) and that's from the chickpeas, mostly.

All of that chew is usually filling and I'm not really even hungry again the next day, when I have to eat again. A lot of times I'm like screw it, I'm not hungry so I'm just gonna fast until I am hungry. My BMI is 20, and no one is saying I'm creepy-skinny anymore (after years of CR optimal nutrition). I'm only about 10% calorie restricted during the past 365 days -- that CR is mostly from water-only fasting -- so I'm expecting nothing fancy in terms of lifespan extension. I'm aging right on schedule like everyone else (presumably, unless those 6g per week rapamycin people have found some party glitter.

Lunch: lately... Avocado mashed with banana and cocoa powder.

Drinks: Filter coffee, Rooibos, White tea, water.

 

Dinner: varies each day. I'm cooked for so it depends on the chef. I try and pass on white pasta, bread, white rice and potatoes.
