Hi protein seems to be the battle cry of almost anybody that goes to the gym regularly. This is especially true whenever they are trying to pack on as much muscle as possible. They get this protein in almost any type of food that they possibly can, including tuna, chicken, beef and other types of meat. They gorge themselves on protein until their body is unable to assimilate any more. Are they really doing any good for themselves?
There’s no denying the fact that many people who eat high protein foods such as this are able to put muscle onto their body. The body needs this type of food, or one that is similar to it in order to make up the basic building blocks of the muscle that they are trying to obtain. In an effort to do this, they may also go with artificial types of protein supplements, powders that are purchased at the store and mixed in large quantities. Some of these protein jars are so large that they are beginning to resemble a small barrel, and there is something about that that seems unhealthy to me.
In order for you to truly understand what goes on inside of the body, you need to understand one basic truth. The body is unable to assimilate protein directly and before it is utilized in the muscles, any protein that you put into your body needs to be broken down into enzymes and amino acids. Much of the protein that people tend to eat, either in the form of supplements or in various types of meat is nothing but dead protein. Unfortunately, it gives them some of what they need but it is lacking in many other ways.
That is why it may be necessary for you to look beyond the possibility of eating high protein food and instead, giving your body the basic building blocks that it needs. This is done through eating raw vegetables, particularly green, leafy vegetables. What many people fail to realize is the fact that some types of lettuce, such as romaine lettuce has more protein than meat. At the same time, it is living protein and it also contains many of the amino acids in enzymes that the body needs in order to grow.
Although this may take a little bit of time to get used to, the simple fact of the matter is that it is not necessary to eat all those high protein, dead forms of food. Rather, you want to feed yourself on healthy food that will give your muscles exactly what they needs in order to grow. It is like cutting out the middleman, and people are experiencing massive growth as a result of doing so. If you are able to effectively incorporate more greens into your diet, while at the same time maintaining your workout level, you will begin to see differences in your muscles as well. Then the next time that somebody asks you where you get your protein, you can simply smile at them and tell them to go eat a salad.

Image by jurvetson Do we all lie on a continuum — from autism to schizophrenia? Here is a provocative view of a continuum in social brain development by Bernie Crespi at the interesting Evolutionary Medicine symposium at Stanford yesterday. “There are 1000s of genes for the social brain, and from the gene replication/deletion studies, the large perturbations are in opposite directions for autistics and schizophrenics. So far, the studies have been done in complete isolation from each other.” “Some of the exciting new drugs, like those targeting mGluR5, have opposing agonist/antagonist approaches for treating schizophrenia and autism.” “Why did evolution lead to these conditions? It is a classic case of pleiotropy, having too much of a good thing. The schizo genes are better at certain task like verbal skills and the autistic has better systematizing skills.” Some of the other talks I really liked: • Joon Yun’s summary of paradoxical medicine and trait induction (triggering the body’s compensation mechanism with an antagonist – like raising the heart rate with exercise with the goal of lowering the resting heart rate) as it relates to evolutionary maladaptation of the vagal autonomic nervous system in response to the shifting environment of modernity (less tiger bites, more heart failure). Joon is from PAI and organized this brain spa. • Kari Nadeau’s summary of the epigenetics of food allergies, leading to a predictable doubling of prevalence in 20 years. When one parent has a food allergy, 65% of the offspring will have a more severe food allergy. With two parents, 85% of the offspring will have a more severe food allergy. With controlled exposure to the allergen, the gene expression changes to the non-allergenic state. (I received this treatment intravenously as a child, and have not had any food allergies since.) An open research question – will this epigenetic change to the non-allergic state be heritable? • Athena Aktipis’s tantalizing comparisons of conserved evolutionary homologs in cancer and microbial consortia. “Tumor growth is less of a problem than metastases spreading throughout the body and deregulating various systems. The mechanism of death is not really known in cancer research.” “All cells are connected to their neighbors, and then they disperse. When their consumption rate becomes a resource limitation, they follow a gradient to greater resources.” (this sounded exactly like a description of E.Coli, which I marveled at on this earlier post). Given the convergent evolution across many information networks (from genes to protein kinase cascades, to neurons), I had to ask about Bonnie Bassler’s work hijacking the quorum sensing communication channels between bacteria — not to kill the bacteria, which induces evolutionary resistance — but to fool them with “counter intelligence” signaling so they happily live on without flipping into virulent mode. “Yes,” she said “To treat cancer, we could resolve the resource dilemma at the cellular level and, paradoxically, feed the tumor. Our goal should be to prolong life, not kill cancer.”
Chart of Foods eaten by the Longest Lived Okinawan Japanese Centenarians-98% Vegetarian 96% Vegan Diet-Only 1% Pork,Grain-based,Anti-Paleo,Anti-Lowcarb Diet-Scientific Study
Image by Centenarian Diet Research OKINAWAN CENTENARIANS DO NOT EAT A DIET BASED ON PORK. THE WORD "OKINAWA" DOES NOT MEAN "ISLAND OF PORK" IN JAPANESE. THAT IS FALSE. OKINAWAN CENTENARIANS EAT A DIET THAT IS 98% VEGETARIAN and 96% VEGAN. OKINAWA'S OLDEST PERSONS EAT A HIGH-CARB LOW-FAT PLANT-BASED DIET. THE LONGEST LIVED PEOPLE AVOID MEAT AND EAT A DIET BASED ON LARGE VOLUMES OF GRAIN. SOURCE: "The Diet of the World’s Longest-Lived People and Its Potential Impact on Morbidity and Life Span" JOURNAL: Annals of the Academy of Sciences - Volume 1114: 434–455 (2007). The Okinawa Longevity diet is plant-based: 98 percent vegetarian and 96 percent vegan. A whopping 85% carbs. Okinawans eat huge amounts of Starch, and Grain. Okinwans eat sugar. Okinawans eat lots of Soy. Okinawans eat lots of potatoes, and rice. The Okinawans eat beans and legumes. The okinawans eat wheat. And are among the longest living people on earth. Notes: Okinawans Do Not eat tons of pork. Okinawans Do Not eat tons of fish. The okinawans avoid meat. 99% of the Okinawan diet is NOT PORK. 99% of the Japanese Okinawan diet is NOT FISH. It is Not true that the Japanese Okinawans eat a lot of fish. It is NOT TRUE that Okinawa is "The Island of Pork". It is NOT true that the word Okinawa translates to The Island of Pork--this is an internet hoax that has been traced to an individual named Chris Masterjohn who was found to be part of a health-fraud group called the Weston A. Price Foundation. The actual word Okinawa (沖縄) consists of 2 Kanji characters in Japanese: Oki + Nawa ( 沖 + 縄 ). Oki means sea or water ( 沖 ). Nawa means rope ( 縄 ). Okinawa therefore actually means: "Rope of the Sea"--referring to the appearance of the 'string of islands that reside in the sea' at the southern part of Japan. These are known as the Ryukyu islands. There is nothing about the islands of pork. Okinawans do not refer to their own island as the island of pork. This is factually incorrect. It was simply concocted by a diet fraud group known as the WAPF, and then spread by those who got false health information from this group. They then spread this false line merely in lay-person "blogs" and simply as social network system or article comments on the internet, which is not scientific. Much of it largely by people advancing a meat-based or low-carber diet plan, and who have never been to Okinawa or Japan or do not speak Japanese. It is fabricated. It is important to note, these are the actual Food Measurements of the Centenarians, the people who did live up over 100+ years. This is not the diet of ALL okinawan people. These are the ones who lived. Not the ones who died. There may be okinawans who eat differently. There may be ones that eat more fish, there may be onese that eat more eggs, less sugar, more dairy, or eat more meat or eat more pork. They did not live. They died sooner. The ones who lived ate what you see above. The Okinawans who lived to be centenarians up over 100+ years of age were eating a 98% Vegetarian plant-based diet. 96% vegan diet. Nearly 70% of which was potatoes, okinawan purple sweet potatoes which contain starches. Rice which is a starch. Grains and wheat, large amounts of Soy, and Tofu, Vegetables, and fruit, and ingested PUFA oils and even a quantity of refined carbohydrates in the form of sugar (composed of both glucose and fructose), and are among the healthiest longest-lived people on earth and are one of the Blue-Zones of longevity. This may be classified actually as an ANTI-PALEO DIET, due to the fact that it consists of grains, including wheat, encourages beans and legumes, is mainly vegetarian, encourages rice, contains hardly any fish, and hardly any bacon or pork, and avoids meat. It is almost the opposite of a paleo diet. This mainly vegetarian plant-based diet results in some of the longest lifespans on the planet. Regular okinawans may eat differently, and may eat slightly more pork, but die quicker. Those Okinawans who avoided meat, avoided fish, avoided dairy, and avoided eating pork such that all of these items were less than barely 1% of their diet, lived the longest. The Okinawan centenarian diet is 85% carbs, 09% protein, and 06% fat. This is a High-Carb, Low-Fat, Low-Protein diet: HC-LF-LP. HCLF. This is NOT a lowcarb diet. This is Not a high-protein diet. Those people who ingested a lowcarb or high protein diet died sooner and had more disease. The diet that matches most closely to this longest-lifespan diet, is an 80-10-10 plant-based diet. The Okinawan diet is 98% vegetarian, which includes the eggs and dairy. The Okinawan diet is 96% vegan, which excludes the eggs and dairy. The Okinawan diet is barely 1% fish, and is 99% other than fish. The Okinawan diet is barely 1% pork, and is 99% NOT PORK. The Okinawans who lived the longest ate more plants and avoided fish, eggs, meat and pork. Peer reviewed scientific journal studies. Confirmed. # PROPER TAGS: Vegan Centenarian Vegetarian vegan centenarians centenarian vegans veg*n veg plant based diet 100+ years old 100 yrs old Longevity long life live long lengthy lifespan health aging senior supercentenarian centurian centenarion
