62 Add more, 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 my attention?
Do I understand the need or problem?
Do I understand the potential solution?
Do I understand how to apply that strategy?
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
Who needs to hear this?
What do I do next?
