Warren Green can be reached at warreng9241@hotmail.com Health and Nutrition Strategies For Cancer Survivors and Everybody Else FASTING You are what you eat, and let food be your medicine has been my mantra. It’s time to go into detail. We have very limited control over our very toxic environment, and as a food safety specialist, I’m not optimistic about a quick turnaround. However, we do have enormous control over what we consume. What we consume can help you remove toxins from the body, enhance your immune system, resist cancer, resist diabetes, and promote energy. The most effective diet should be about 2000 calories and should include nutrients from the three major macronutrient groups of fats, carbs, and protein. My primary fat choice is extra virgin olive oil. Carbs are the most complex of the group and have the most health implications, so its vitally important to consume the right kind. Any food with an ingredient listing demands your scrutiny. Protein is the most essential of essential nutrients, a well established way to curb your appetite, and critical to your general well being. Over the past few months I’ve provided information on the toxicity of protein derived from animal products. Use your discretion. Now to the fasting part. As my readers might be aware, I have an affinity for a modified Mediterranean diet (my modification is to eliminate dairy and red meat). In an earlier column we discussed a one or two month optimizing regimen. I’ve uncovered an interesting study funded by the National Institute of Aging, that found that individuals who intermittently fasted had reduced factors for aging,cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. The study asserts that the regimen reprograms the body so it enters a slower aging mode while rejuvenating it. It’s called the “Fasting Mimicking Diet”.It works like this: For twenty five days out of the month, you eat as you normally would. For day one, you would eat 1090 calories (10% protein, 56% fat, 34% carbs). For days two-five, 725 calories (9% protein, 44% fat, 47% carbs). With all diets, you should consult with your doctor. Finally, over the last five years I’ve had the honor of facilitating the Albemarle Prostate Cancer Support Group, in Northeast North Carolina. It has been some of the most fulfilling years of my life. Last month was the final meeting of the group. Thanks to the Daily Advance and Virginia Pilot for their notifications of our meetings, and to Sentara Albemarle Hospital for their assistance and use of their facility. To my fellow survivors, I can be reached, as always, on e-mail.
