01-16.62 Instead, focus on a tried-and-true ancient healing tradition.

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 


INSTEAD OF SEARCHING for some exotic, never-seen-before diet miracle to help us break insulin resistance, let’s instead focus on a tried-and-true ancient healing tradition. Fasting is one of the oldest remedies in human history and has been part of the practice of virtually every culture and religion on earth.” [1]

NOTE (my commentary):


Let’s instead focus on a tried-and-true ancient healing tradition: Fasting.




A new fad diet rises up, one after another, trying to jiggle the ingredients of what a dieter can eat or not eat. They all work in the short run, but the pounds inevitably return.

Examples: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fad_diet

“Fen-Fen” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenfluramine/phentermine

But fasting is the most widespread way to lower calorie intake throughout all the world’s cultures and religions, and throughout human history.

STRATEGY: Fasting is so common, now and throughout history, as to be entirely normal.

What gets your attention?
What does it say about Reality? (Any misperceptions to correct?)
What does it say that I need to obey? (What should be added to my strategy?)
How can I incorporate what is true into my Disciplines? (Specific methods?)
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
