    Study: Time restricted eating is an effective intervention for metabolic syndrome

    Reducing visceral fat is extremely important. That’s the fat you can’t see. It’s the fat that builds up in your organs and will kill you over time.

    The New York Times reported on a study in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) on time restricted eating, or as it is more commonly known these days, intermittent fasting. It’s important to note the study was also based on calorie restriction, which was left out of the headline, in addition to time restriction. […]

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup may block Vitamin D increasing risk COVID-19 infection

    It’s increasingly clear that metabolic health and Vitamin D deficiency lead to more serious cases of COVID-19.

  • Metabolic Syndrome is growing in the United States

    It’s been shown over the last several months that those from metabolic syndrome are most vulnerable to COVID-19.

  • Nearly 50% of Americans over 60 suffer from metabolic syndrome

    The bad news is way too many people suffer from metabolic syndrome. The good news is that it’s relatively easy to reverse. It starts with your diet and getting off the sugar/carbohydrate addiction. As many as 37 percent of all American adults have metabolic syndrome, placing them at increased risk for heart disease and other […]

  • Poor metabolic health is the weakness that allows COVID-19 to kill

    It’s not the virus that is the big killer. It’s the virus plus the Standard American Diet (SAD). The US will suffer the most because we are the least metabolically healthy. The map above shows where U.S residents are at increased risk for severe Covid-19 illness, compared with the national average. It is based on […]

  • The American diet and COVID-19 mortality

    The link between poor metabolic health and death from COVID-19 keeps cropping up in the news. Doctors and scientists are discovering two common characteristics among many of those who are losing their battle with COVID-19 — they are overweight or obese and suffer from a chronic disease. Ninety four percent of deaths from COVID-19 are […]

  • How to prevent or reverse metabolic syndrome

    In a previous post I discussed what metabolic syndrome is and its possible causes. Here I’ll discuss what you may be able to do to reverse or prevent it.

  • Book: Life in the Fasting Lane

    Last week I finished reading, “Life in the Fasting Lane”, and I think it’s a great book for anyone looking to get into intermittent fasting or even fasting for longer periods. The book follows the real experiences of Eve Mayer and chronicles her successes and struggles with weight, diet, and fasting. There is nothing better […]
