Brad Pilon defines “Intermittent Fasting” (“IF”) as a purposeful break from eating. Dr. Edward Group defines it as alternating periods of fasting with periods of eating during the same day. If you think about it, we already do IF, because we fast when we go to sleep and we break that fast when we eat food the next day (unless we’re midnight snackers, which is bad!).
I am intrigued and already experiencing great success in the first week of the program, so I wanted to pass this on to our readers. Ms. Pomroyis a celebrity nutritionist and wellness consultant, and her books have been “Instant #1 New York Times Bestsellers,” so she has great credibility. More importantly, her program makes sense.
Breakfast: It’s the most important meal of the day, and it could also be a key to living better with type 2 diabetes. New Israeli research indicates that a high-energy breakfast promotes weight loss, improves diabetic symptoms, and decreases the need for insulin. Academic researchers from Tel Aviv University presented the study at ENDO 2018, the 100th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in Chicago. Their research shows that a diet that includes three meals a day—a big breakfast, average-sized lunch, and small dinner—had many rapid and positive effects in obese, insulin-treated type 2 diabetics. Positive results included more effective weight loss, less hunger, and better diabetes control with less insulin. “The hour of the day—when you eat and how frequently you eat—is more important than what you eat and how many calories you eat,” said lead study author Daniela Jakubowicz, M.D. “Our body metabolism changes throughout the day.

Dr. Samuel West discovered the importance of activating the lymphatic system for better health and pain control. He found that “trapped proteins” in the lymph system produce conditions that cause loss of energy, disease, and death at the cellular level. He has had outstanding results by simply getting people to pump out the toxins from the “garbage” disposal system (our lymph system) with simple, gentle movements on a mini-trampoline, called “rebounding.”
Iodine is important to our bodies, and we have an excellent source right here at our clinic. The Thyroid gland needs iodine to produce the thyroid hormones, which support a healthy metabolism. The body does not make iodine, so it is must be an essential part of your diet or taken via supplements. Vegetarians, especially vegans, are particularly at risk for thyroid deficiency. Too much iodine can also cause problems, and as with most things regarding our health, balance is the key.
