The Micro Fast or Micronutrient Fast is essentially an ultra low calorie Four Corners of Superfood Nutrition
fast to replace one or more meals, using only “micronutrients,” which are vitamins, minerals, antioxidants,
phytonutrients, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, prebiotics, and probiotics instead of
“macronutrients,” which are protein, carbohydrates, and fats.

- KC Craichy, The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!

Best-selling author Ty Bollinger sat down with LivingFuelTV host KC Craichy recently to discuss the book, Cancer: Step Outside The Box. It is Bollinger’s story of losing his father, mother, grandmother, two grandfathers, uncle and cousin to cancer in less than six years.

“The first cancer diagnosis was my father in 1996 on July 1st,” Bollinger told Craichy. “He died 25 days later. That’s what began my cancer research journey.”

Bollinger is the most recent guest on LivingFuelTV, a weekly health and fitness program dedicated to educating people about the best information concerning natural health solutions. KC Craichy and his wife Monica are show hosts.

KC Craichy SuperHealth Podcast – How Often Should You Eat?

Comments Off

Posted on 15th July 2011 by admin in SuperHealth Podcasts

, , , , , , ,

A hotly debated topic among doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers, coaches, and mothers is the frequency of our meals. While most of us are keenly aware that a crisp, organic apple is a better choice than a bag of potato chips, the timing of our eating is a subject that you’re not likely to find consensus. Should we graze throughout the day? Should we eat several small meals every three hours? Should we eat three meals with no snacks or three meals with a mid-morning and afternoon snack? A combination of all of the above?

Today on the Super Health Podcast, I “weigh in” on the controversy from a lifetime of study. The practical information you’ll learn today is presented in depth in Chapter 13, Meal Frequency, Snacks, and Eating Speed, from my new book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need! The book is jam-packed with practical tips on eating with wisdom and intent, supported by education. Tune in today and discover if your eating frequency matches your weight optimization and wellness goals.

Audio Transcription

Welcome to Living Fuel TV. I’m KC Craichy. Meal frequency, three meals a day, four meals a day, five meals a day, six meals a day… What is the truth? Well, it has become basically nutritional dogma that you should graze all the time, that you should have five to six meals a day, and that that is the healthiest way. You keep your blood sugar up, you keep feeling good, and it’s really accepted to be truth today. But is it really true? Grandma said, “Eat three meals a day and don’t snack after dinner.”

So, is Grandma right, or are all these pundits right? That’s the question we have today. So, I looked at this issue, basically, how does the body respond to food? Why do people eat all the time? They talk about they want to keep the blood sugar up. They want to keep their energy going. They want to stoke the metabolism. This word “metabolism” is really overused. People say, “I have a fast metabolism.” “I have a slow metabolism.” “I eat all the time to keep my metabolism going.” Well, the truth is, they really don’t want to go into cannibalization, where the body is tearing down proteins of the body and using that for energy. So, they continue throwing food in the fire, so to speak, to keep that from happening.

So, looking at the body, when you eat, let’s say, protein, let’s just say you have a meal with 50 grams of protein. Let’s just say it’s in the form of a steak. When you eat a steak, let’s say for lunch, and people say, “Well, I just had 50 grams of protein. I had a great protein lunch.” So, then they want to eat three hours later. But what happens, is the protein and the potatoes, and whatever else you ate… Let’s say your blood sugar was at, say, 85. You started your meal. Then the blood sugar went to roughly 100. Then it starts to work its way down over a two and a half to three hour period. What happens from the endocrine system’s perspective is, high insulin starts to happen and push down the blood sugar. When the blood sugar gets about back to where it started, then glucagon kicks in and the body starts releasing stored energy to be used as fuel. From the time the stored energy starts being released until you eat again is what we call “maximum metabolic mode”. So, if you eat in the middle, what happens to that scenario? You have your meal, the blood sugar and insulin rises. It starts to fall and before it reaches baseline again, you put something else in your mouth and raise your blood sugar again. So, you never get into maximum metabolic mode and you put a lot of stress on your adrenals, and eventually that wears you out. So from one perspective, from the endocrine system, it makes more sense to eat, allow the blood sugar and insulin level to rise. Bring back to baseline. Go to maximum metabolic mode, and then you eat again. So, when you eat again, let’s say those are six hour cycles, you allow the endocrine system to work as it is designed to work. So, that is one scenario.

The second piece is, are they really going to go catabolic? Are you really going to lose muscle between meals if you don’t eat between meals? That question is answered by how fast does protein digest? We talked about the steak, for instance. Once you eat a steak, it’s going to be at least two hours before any amino acids are being released from that steak. So, when you see your sugar and insulin rise, the amino acids are not there ready to be released. So, from the time they start to release, they’re going to release from six to 10 grams per hour. If you think about a 50 gram with a two hour delay, it’s really seven hours before – at the earliest, and a meat can take 30 hours for that matter – that the amino acids are going to be released into the body.

So, I believe Grandma was right. Now, we’re not going to settle this today. But the truth is, I say that from now – if you try this tomorrow, you have your breakfast and you think about what you are going to eat before lunch, and you pull that all the way back to breakfast and have it at breakfast. Have nothing in the middle. So, you have breakfast at 7:00, lunch at 1:00, dinner at 7:00. So, take the same thing at lunch. Whatever you’re going to have for your afternoon snack, drag it back to your lunch. Eat it then and wait until dinner, and don’t eat anything at night. I think you’ll find that you probably won’t even feel like snacking, and I think you’ll increase your energy. You’ll continue to start to optimize you weight and you’ll start to feel better.

I hope this was helpful to you. God bless you, and have a great day.

HealthAlert: Cancer Step Outside the Box, Part 3

Cancer is a word, not a sentence.

John Diamond

Dear Living Fuel Family,

Perhaps someone you love received the test results this week.  Cancer.

Those diagnosed with this dreaded disease face difficult decisions that are literally a matter of life and death.  The first question uttered by a new cancer patient is invariably:  What do I do now?

Today on LivingFuelTV, we address this question head-on continuing our series of important HealthAlerts, Cancer Step Outside the Box with Ty Bollinger.  While we are not medical doctors, and we are not providing medical advice, the practical information we share today is critical for cancer patients and their families to carefully examine and thoughtfully consider.

Click on the graphic below to join us.  And watch above Ty’s right shoulder at the 6:52 mark in the video for a special aquatic guest appearance.

Audio Transcription

Welcome to Living Fuel TV. I’m KC Craichy. So you or a loved one has received a diagnosis of cancer. You’re devastated. What do you do? Well, I’m here with special guest, a best selling author, Ty Bollinger,”Cancer: Step Outside the Box“.

Ty: Great to be here, KC.

KC: Glad to have you, brother. So, what does one do if you receive this horrible diagnosis, regardless of the type of cancer in my opinion, and I’m very interested in what you have to say, that the first thing is radical nutrition. You can no longer afford to eat junk food and sugars and all those sort of things. You have to clean up the temple and really radically change nutrition. The other thing that I would say, immediately, and we talked in the last segment, the Moss Report, and we’ll put it on the website for the Moss Report, because I can’t think of what it is right now what it’s called, Cancer Options or something to that effect.

Ty: Yeah, I can’t remember.

KC: If someone has a diagnosis of any kind of cancer, you can send your information to Ralph Moss, who was former head of cancer patients at Sloan- Kettering…

Ty: Sloan-Kettering.

KC: …Sloan-Kettering in New York, and you can send it for a pretty reasonable fee, they will give you a thick report on whatever kind of cancer that you might be dealing with and include the conventional treatments, the success of the conventional treatments, various alternative treatments and the types of success they have with the alternative treatments and who is doing them, and they put you on a report where they give you the latest information as it comes out.

Ty: Right.

KC: This is a clinical report we can actually hand to a doctor and say, “Here’s the information, I’m interested in this, this and this…

Ty: Right.

KC: …but not this”, and the doctors don’t argue with clinical documents. They argue with when you go to the Internet and you print some wacky thing out. So tell us, if you had or your loved ones had such a diagnosis, what would be the steps you would take?

Ty: Great question, because I get that question all the time and emails from cancer patients. What should I do? I have to make it clear, I’m not a doctor. I don’t diagnose disease or treat disease, so all I can do is give you a hypothetical of what I would do, so if it were me or my family, cancer is primarily, in my opinion, the disease that is from a compromised immune system due in large part to the environmental toxins. We are exposed to toxins on a daily basis. It’s in the food we eat, pesticides, insecticides, fungicides.

KC: Air, water.

Ty: It’s in our air, it’s in the water we drink. If you’re drinking from a municipal water supply, you’re drinking fluoridated water.

KC: It’s radiation, medical radiation.

Ty: We are being bombarded with external toxins, and so that is one of the factors that most likely caused the cancer. Another factor in today’s American diet is the food that you’ve been eating has most likely contributed to your cancer, because the foods that we eat, if you’re eating out you’re eating hydrogenated oils, which are fake fats, which ruin the electron makeup of your cell walls. You’re eating foods that are suppressing your immune system. You’re drinking sodas that are extremely acidic, which is a breeding ground for cancer, so there are all kinds of things that you’ve likely been doing in your diet that you have to make a radical change if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer in order to recover from the cancer. Me personally, the first thing I do is I make a radical change in my diet, which I wouldn’t have to do, because I eat a clean diet, but if I were eating junk food and eating out, I’d radically change my diet. I would get on a number of supplements. I know we’re not going to plug SuperGreens Living Fuel that you have, one of your products, but personally my family takes it every day. I drink it, my wife drinks it, all my kids drink it, because we believe it’s that good of a nutritional supplement. So, you have to radically change your diet. You have to stop eating and consuming the foods that contribute to the cancer in the first place and then your next step is, because your body is toxic, you must do a full body detox. I believe that is one of the missing pieces of the puzzle that even a lot of alternative natural cancer researchers and doctors miss, is they do not do a full body detox. If you have cancer as a result of toxic overload, it only makes sense that in order to cure the cancer you must detox the toxins. A full body detox and then there’s a chapter in my book called Spoiled Rotten that details all the way from a colon cleanse to a parasite cleanse to a kidney cleanse to liver, gall and then a blood cleanse, all in a row. Once you’ve done that, you’ve detoxed the body, you’ve gotten rid of the toxins that were likely one of the factors that caused the cancer, you radically changed your diet and now you can be on the road to recovery.

KC: Even if you should decide to go with the chemo and the drugs and surgery.

Ty: Yeah.

KC: Even if that is a logical approach.

Ty: Yes, because if you clean up your diet properly, you’re going to begin stimulating your immune system and if you stimulate your immune system, then you’re going to be able to mitigate the damage that’s caused by chemo, because it will hurt your immune system while it’s killing the cancer cells.

KC: You know, I really am grieved oftentimes when I get an email or call from someone that says, my doctor said to stop doing the SuperHealth Diet during my chemo because it’s going to block the action of the chemo and whatever else.

Ty: That’s absurd.

KC: It’s absurd. In fact, some research I read said that the average life expectancy post chemo is 360 days in certain cancers, but when you have high nutrient dense with antioxidants it goes up to 3000 days, like ten times as long.

Ty: Yes, and why is that, KC? Because chemotherapy kills cancer cells, I will not dispute that. It also kills your immune system and if you can get on an immune stimulating diet, then the chemo can kill the cancer cells and if you can keep your immune system up, you can recover from it and live a long time, whereas without it your immune system may be devastated to such an extent that the chemo not only kills the cancer it kills you, too.

KC: I often say go ahead and skip super nutrition on the chemo days, but on the off days go back to hitting it hard or being extreme clean in your diet and so on.

Ty: Yes.

KC: These are really helpful tips. Now, the one thing that we left out on your side is that decision making process. These things are important to talk about no matter what way that they decide to go with their treatment options.

Ty: Right.

KC: And whether that be conventional, alternative, whatever the case may be.

Ty: Sure.

KC: So when they have a diagnosis and they only have to rely on the single doctor that made that diagnosis, what are the steps they can take to get some other information from people with the credentials to look at their specific situation and help them in the decision making process?

Ty: Well, to be honest with you, at that point you’ve got to already have done your homework. You’ve got to have done it before the diagnosis, because at the diagnosis time you are going to be in a tizzy, OK? Your world has just come to an end as you know it, and that’s not the time to begin getting informed, if you can have access to information like in my book or many other good books beforehand.

KC: OK. I’m agreeing with you 100%, but right now today somebody has received a diagnosis and they need help.

Ty: Right.

KC: And they don’t have your book yet.

Ty: Right.

KC: They’re going to get your book and they’re going to read your book.

Ty: Yes.

KC: They need an oncologist who understands, like the one we talked about yesterday that’s an MD, oncologist and a naturopathic oncologist.

Ty: Yes.

KC: A guy like that can give you input about it, yes, because oftentimes you hear this, “Hey there’s nothing we can do, but we’re going to do this anyway.”

Ty: Yeah.

KC: If your doctor says there’s nothing we can do, but we’re going to try chemo and radiation, even though chemo and radiation hasn’t worked in the literature, it’s really probably not the ideal path to take.

Ty: No.

KC: You’ve got to step back and understand it and if you want to go that route, then make that decision on your own, with some other counseling.

Ty: What they’re telling you in that situation, KC, is we’re going to try you as a guinea pig here, because I don’t think it’s going to work, but we’re going to give it a shot anyway and you’re the guinea pig, you’re the human guinea pig. That’s not acceptable to me.

KC: And many times, people get these treatments after the doctors say, “Go home, there’s nothing we can do for you.”

Ty: Right.

KC: And how often do these treatments happen at that point? Often.

Ty: Often, and that’s one of the issues is that if you have a compromised immune system from chemo and radiation, it’s going to be harder to treat your cancer than if you had not compromised your immune system, so the immune system, in my opinion, is the key. You’ve got to keep your immune system boosted, because that’s the natural mechanism that God gave your bodies to fight off disease.

KC: And those on chemo, oftentimes they die of nutritional deficiency.

Ty: Yes.

KC: Not of the cancer itself. Ty: Yes.

KC: Now, the chemo has made it so hard to eat and drink that they actually die of starvation.

Ty: It’s called the cachexia cycle. Their body wastes away and begins to digest itself.

KC: We have some cancer centers that told us that they’re taking SuperBerry and they’re making popsicles out of it in the freezer, and so the patients can actually take a Popsicle with SuperBerry and put it in their mouth. Because they have lesions in their mouth. They can’t put anything in their mouth, but that ice actually freezes the lesions and make them feel good and it gives them nutrients along the way.

Ty: That’s great.

KC: It’s really fascinating. We didn’t come up with that idea the cancer center did.

Ty: That’s great.

KC: But it’s really cool. Awesome information.

Ty: Thank you, KC.

KC: God bless you, brother.

Ty: God bless you, too.

KC: I sure hope you enjoyed it. God bless you and have a great day.

Even with decades of intensive study in diet, nutrition, and fitness, I’m continually amazed by the incredible machine we are blessed to inhabit—the human body.  For example, the digestive system is a miraculous system of transforming the food on our plates into usable building blocks and fuel for trillions of cells that enable them to carry out their life-sustaining tasks.  This engineering marvel operates unconsciously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The digestive process actually begins in your mouth, not the stomach, and there are simple practices you can implement at your next meal to consciously aid digestion.  This is the topic today on the SuperHealth Podcast adapted from my new book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!.  Join me as we take a fun look at the history of chewing and explore the benefits of drinking your food.

1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
National Cancer Institute, U.S. National Institutes of Health
Dear Living Fuel Family,
Just as the number of cancer diagnoses is on the dramatic rise, so is the amount of available information on the disease from prevention to treatment.  Today, on LivingFuelTV, we continue our imporant series of HealthAlerts, Cancer Step Outside the Box, with Ty Bollinger.  In Part 2, we hear Ty’s moving story of his parents that were both diagnosed, “treated”, and passed away from cancer.  Their tragedies sparked an exhaustive search for treatment alternatives, and a strong passion to inform others of his findings. Once again, it’s our goal in this series to help dispel the fear of cancer while arming you with information to assist you and others in making informed treatment decisions.
