Chronobiology – How Circadian Rhythms Can Control Your Health and Weight – Michael Greger, M.D.

Given the power of chronotherapy—how the same dose of the same drugs taken at a different time of day can have such different effects—it’s no surprise that chronoprevention approaches, like meal timing, can also make a difference.

Wasn’t that chemo data wild? Amazing! And if you are on blood pressure medications, please share this video with your physician to ask to see if your timing is optimized.

We kicked off this chronobiology series by looking into the importance of breakfast when it comes to weight loss: Is Breakfast the Most Important Meal for Weight Loss? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-br…) and Is Skipping Breakfast Better for Weight Loss? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-sk…).

I didn’t want it to be all chrono all the time in case there were some people uninterested in the topic, explaining, for example, why the previous video was on an unrelated topic (The Effects of Hormones in Milk on Infertility in Women (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-e…)). I’ll keep doing that interspersing back and forth, but here’s the list of the rest of this punctuated series still to come:

Hello, I’m Quinyatta!

Your Certified Health Education Specialist.   Although I hold a Masters of Public Health with an emphasis in Community Health and I am in the process of earning a Doctorate in Public Health, my true superpowers come from my personal journey to health.  

In 2013, I made the decision that I wanted to live. I mean really live the life that God destined me to have.  I had reached the lowest point in my life and my highest weight. I was blessed to not be on any medication, but as a health educator, I knew that without a behavior modification — medication was going to be my destiny. My then 9-year presented me with a challenge. She wanted to climb Pinnacle Mountain for her 10th birthday. At my size, there was no way that I was going to climb anything. But because IamSHE and SHEisME I committed to a regular training schedule and a liquid diet. Over the course of 6-months, I dropped the initial 50 pounds.

Today, I am  175 pounds lighter. Over the next year, I plan to reach my final goal. I want to take the last mile of my journey with women who have been or are where I am….striving to achieve optimal health while maintaining curves. I do not have a desire to be skinny…I desire to be healthy…the healthiest version of me that is possible.  

Join us for the Curvy Consciousness movement as we empower women of all shapes, sizes, and colors to embrace their feminine shape and take back their health. You do not have to be a size 2, 4, 6, or 8 to be healthy. Girl, embrace your curves.  #SizeHealthy

Tired of New Year’s diets that you can’t stick with?

Plant Based Transformation for Beginners Classes start January 9th in North Little Rock

Before we switched to a Whole Food Plant Based (WFPB) lifestyle, like most people, we would steadily eat more and more decadent food throughout the month of December, culminating with the culinary bacchanalia of Christmas.  I often felt so disgusting after all this dietary excess, that sometimes we would start our “New Years Diet” on Dec. 27th! Of course this would be some kind of crazy restrictive cleanse diet that left me in a state of continual mild hunger and I could typically never sustain it for more than a few weeks.  As I got older, I began to realize that this New Year’s diet thing was just stupid because even though I would usually lose about 10 pounds, I NEVER COULD STICK WITH IT and would just gain the weight right back. So eventually, I just gave up on the New Year’s diets altogether.  

Last year, my husband came home from the doctor with a diagnosis of pre-diabetes. I’ve been a cardiac RN for over 25 years and was mortified at this diagnosis after seeing so much suffering in my patients over the years because of Type 2 diabetes.  I had heard that a WFPBD could reverse diabetes and so we tried it, and lo and behold, within 4 months, Paul’s blood work showed that his diabetes had been reversed! 

A WFPBD is built around the healthy carbohydrates of fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains.  A WFPBD is a HIGH FIBER DIET by design. The average American only gets about 15 Gm of fiber a day which leads to many dietary related illnesses such as colon cancer and many other chronic diseases. By contrast, a WFPBD aims to get about 40 Gm of fiber a day. This leaves you feeling full and helps fight perverse cravings that occur when we are nutritionally deprived. The satiety of a high fiber diet is the reason that a WFPB lifestyle is so successful for permanent weight loss.  I know that once I get to a certain level of hunger, I lose all will power and will eat virtually anything I can get my hands on. I found that after I switched to this high-fiber diet (with no limits on portion sizes), I was never hungry in between meals for the first time in my life.  This removed all the most common downfalls of desperation eating and the need to always meticulously plan ahead so I wouldn’t be trapped in a dangerous “hunger situation”.   My husband and I both lost over 20# and have kept it off with seemingly little to no effort.

I was watching his videos and reading his blog for research re Splenda and realized I may not be doing much better with Stevia, especially considering the amount of herbal tea I drink daily. Check these out, too:

Comments below these are interesting, too. And the winner is … wean myself off of sweets and enjoy the natural flavor of food and beverages – same advice I would give myself re salt and oils. May use date sugar in the interim.

 

 

How Many Water Fasts Have You Supervised And Has Anyone Died During A Water Fast You Supervised? Dr. Michael Klaper, TrueNorth Health Center

Dr. Klaper will be coming to UAMS in April as reported here: https://theplantstrongclub.org/2019/12/11/news-flash-this-just-reported-in-dr-michael-klapers-moving-medicine-forward-year-end-letter-to-our-supporters-dated-dec-11-2019/ . Be sure to follow this site for updates re details.

How Many Water Fasts Have You Supervised And Has Anyone Died During A Water Fast You Supervised?

Vegan Nutrition: Pure and Simple by Michael Klaper, M.D.

Dr. Michael Klaper, is a gifted clinician, internationally recognized teacher, and sought-after speaker on diet and health. He has practiced medicine for more than 40 years and is a leading educator in applied plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine.

He is also the author of a successful book on cholesterol-free nutrition and an upcoming title (to be announced in 2018), as well as numerous DVDs and Videos on Demand, a series of “Healthy YOU Webinars,” and dozens of articles.

A source of inspiration advocating plant-based diets and the end of animal cruelty worldwide, Dr. Klaper contributed to the making of two PBS television programs Food for Thought and the award-winning Diet for a New America movie based on the book of the same name.

Dr. Michael Klaper teaches that “Health Comes From Healthy Living” and is dedicated to the healing and flourishing of all living beings and our planet.

Dr. Klaper graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago (1972), served a medical internship at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia, Canada with additional training in surgery, anesthesiology, and orthopedics at the University of British Columbia Hospitals in Vancouver and in obstetrics at the University of California Hospitals in San Francisco.

As Dr. Klaper’s medical career progressed, he began to realize (true to what science is bearing out today) that many of the diseases his patients presented – clogged arteries (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure (hypertension), obesity, adult onset diabetes, and even some forms of arthritis, asthma, and other significant illnesses – were made worse or actually caused by the high sugar, high fat, high salt, overly processed Standard American Diet (S.A.D.).

See Dr. Klaper’s 73-minute DVD and Video On Demand, “Salt, Sugar and Oil: Could Your Favorite Flavors Be Hurting You?”

Accordingly, Dr. Klaper resolutely believes that proper nutrition (through a whole food, plant-based diet) and a balanced lifestyle are essential for health and, in many cases, can make the difference between healing an illness or merely treating its symptoms.

To learn how to truly thrive on a plant-based diet, see Dr. Klaper’s 99-minute Video On Demand, “Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet.”

In addition to his clinical practice and private consultations with patients, Dr. Klaper is a passionate and devoted educator of physicians and other healthcare professionals about the importance of nutrition in clinical practice.

Dr. Michael Klaper served as the Director of the non-profit Institute of Nutrition Education and Research from 1992 through 2015, during which time he conducted a study focusing on people who ate a completely plant-based (vegan) diet.
