I love most of the Go Animal newsletters/articles...

My impression is that Frank should leave the nutrition "knowledge" to other people. As in, don't we all know we should eat breakfast...

Living example....over 90, active, running around, no memory issues.....but yet we think we still don't have the answers to health in modern society....sad really....as people already had the answers 50 years ago....without all these modern breakthroughs in science, fad diets and other studies....just people chose not to listen....they need to rebroadcast his show on TV...as it would be the only thing worth watching nowadays....

Great thing about Jack....I mean besides him selling his juicer and all....is he was in on fasting long ago....he was buddies with Bragg (Mr ACV himself), another good guy to read up on who is pushing health into his later years....

The way I heard the story was that Jack was a pimply and weak teenager when his mother took him to hear Paul Bragg speak. Bragg gave him some instructions (including removal of sugar from the diet - this was over 70 years ago) and words of encouragement. The rest, they say, is history.

I believe Paul Bragg is dead, killed by breaking his neck bodysurfing off the California coast while in his 90's. What a way to go. Big advocate of fasting.

If all this info is wrong, don't blame me, blame the internets.

Considering Bragg was born in like 1895....I'll listen to any guy who died bodysurfing in his 90s....His books are a good quick read...little repetitive some of them but the same info, lift weights, fast, ACV, fresh fruits and vegetables, deep breathing.....can't argue with people living strong into their 90s.....add Guinness and you have my new book in the works!

Default DeVaney entry

DeVaney had this on his site that seems to tie in to what Robb mentioned about clearing intercellular detritus:


"Autophagy (self eating or consumption) is a crucial process in the cell. The cell consumes and recycles damaged internal material; this is an energy sparing process and important for scavenging old and damaged material within the cell. Autophagy is an important element in energy management and damage repair. The energy and protein content of damaged material is used to fuel rebuilding and cellular energetics.

The process seems to be triggered when the energy content of the cell declines so that the cell literally consumes itself. It goes after the damaged materials first, so there is a strong link between repair of damaged tissues and fasting or low energy state in the cell. So, it you are over-fed you down regulate cellular repair. You want to go hungy episodically to turn on cellular autophagy and repair those damaged tissues.

This makes a lot of sense from an evolutionary perspective. When the energy in the cell declines, the cell eats the damaged tissues for energy and that recycles the damaged tissues to make new material. The result is a healthier cell. It is efficient for the cell to turn to damaged materials first as a source of energy, thus sparing healthy tissues. So, in addition to fat, damaged internal materials of the cell are a source of energy. A fat person has a lot of damaged tissues inside cells and never recycles and repairs them because there is too much energy in the cell.

Of course, exercise has the same effect because it lowers energy stores in the cells and also because it damages muscle cells, causing them to repair themselves through autophagy".

This thread is on its death-bed.

Do you think Low-rep lifts that give a CV stimulus would be a good approach to Metcon during the winter months when carbs are low? Since strength is the main focus then, would these get in the way or sap too much energy?
