Do we need to take glutathione supplements or can we get better results from food alone?
Glutathione is a key cellular component, known as the body’s most powerful antioxidant. It is a tri-peptide constructed from three amino acids through a special enzymatic process and appears in all cells and tissues. There is currently a great hype about glutathione supplementation, highly popularized as a “miracle” means to boost health, prevent disease and fight aging. But since the issue of glutathione supplementation involves lots of misinformation (similar to the issue of vitamin supplementation) it’s important to examine the facts.

It appears that my post on the Dark Side of Creatine (Creatine: The Dark Truth Behind the Muscle-Building Hype) has created a bit of a controversy. There is an evolutionary process to controversial ideas. Opinions that were initially raising great resistance and anger have been proven later as factually true and thus respected accordingly. I was ahead of time when I came with the concept of intermittent fasting as a practical diet and perhaps I’m ahead of time with this issue now. See my latest blog for an update and the scientific references to back it up.

Do you see yourself fit? Can you bench press your body weight? How about doing ten pull ups or fifty push-ups? If you can, you’re probably fit by conventional standards. But according to nature, all that will be meaningless if you’re not biologically fit.

Intermittent fasting (from morning to evening not including post exercise recovery meal) can be done in three ways: fasting, undereating or pulse feeding
- Fasting – If you choose to fast you can do water fating or vegetable juice fasting (have one up to a few vegetable juices daily).
- Undereating – If you choose to undereat rather than fast, minimize your food intake during the day to small servings of light, low glycemic mostly raw foods such as fruits, vegetables, whey protein or lightly poached eggs every 4-6 hours.
- Pulse feeding fibers – Pulse feeding involves frequent use of small whey protein meals with no sugar added every 3-5 hours throughout the day. This regimen is geared towards athletes; we’ll cover it in more detail soon.
As a general rule, have recovery meal (whey protein) after your workout and eat your main meal at night. Intermittent fasting has been recognized as a proven effective strategy to help negate physical and cognitive aging. Adding exercise to this routine will “seal the deal” and shoot the anti-aging impact of this regimen to another level.

Can you keep your muscle young at an old age?
Main stream fitness and the medical establishment cannot figure out how to prevent muscle aging. They can’t even seem to figure out what causes the muscle to deteriorate in the first place. A new article at the wall street journal (http://online.wsj.com/articles/how-to-keep-your-muscles-strong-as-you-age-1403470488) just proves that the term human fitness and human aging are nothing more than sheer speculations -same old same old theories and no viable solutions.

How Many Grams of Protein Can Your Body Absorb in One Meal.
The smaller the serving is, the higher the protein biological value becomes. Meaning the less protein you consume per meal, the more of it you utilize.
Factors Affecting Protein Utilization.
The main factor in protein utilization is insulin sensitivity. High insulin sensitivity allows you utilize maximum protein from minimum food. If your goal is is sustainability don’t even bother about your protein. If however your goal is to gain muscle gradually increase your protein intake until noticing results. Remember your training is a critical factor too. I am not a big believer in counting protein per body weight. Use your instincts and common sense, enjoy your meals and even more so enjoy your life. Counting protein is unnatural and unnecessary.
