    While I think you d have to have OCD to follow this plan, there were many great insights about nutrition to be found within.

    Eh not so much Very common sense and didn t explain the myriad of science that is available to make this book stronger.

    CR is Calorie Restriction, which is supposed to slow down the aging process, increase your energy, reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease A very interesting book although a bit dry in places The emphasis is on calorie restriction along with getting the very best nutrition in the food that is eaten Although there isn t yet a large amount of study on human longevity, there does seem to be a good indication that calorie restriction will increase life span, and not just, as many CR is Calorie Restriction, which is supposed to slow down the aging process, increase your energy, reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease A very interesting book although a bit dry in places The emphasis is on calorie restriction along with getting the very best nutrition in the food that is eaten Although there isn t yet a large amount of study on human longevity, there does seem to be a good indication that calorie restriction will increase life span, and not just, as many have suggested, make it just seem longer Many people, with Americans at the top of the list and me included among them, could stand to reduce calorie consumption and makenutritious choices Certainly, makingnutrition choices would help almost anyone, certainly those who go overboard on fast food Eat to live, don t live to eat That makes sense, but I think for all but the very most dedicated, following the CR way is too restrictive Although the authors do say you can follow it at your own level and not do all that they suggest, they do recommend a fairly stringent regiment including blood glucose measurement, food tracking, and short term fasting among other things The book also discusses the importance of moderate exercise and meditation.The authors stop eating for the day around 1 00 PM and fast 15 17 hours That means breakfast between 4 00 AM and 6 00 AM Breakfast is started with lemon juice in water, followed by sugarless gum to activate cephalic insulin production followed by a tease meal Follow with 15 minutes of moderate exercise and finally the main and largest meal of the day, breakfast The ample breakfast includes salmon, soup, barley, CR Way garnish, lentils and tomatoes, raspberries and walnuts Ideally, especially when first starting, glucose should be measured before the lemon juice and tease meal, after the exercise, and twenty to thirty minutes after the main meal I just don t see this happening for most busy families, and I can t see parents sitting at the dinner table with a glass of water, watching their children eat but not participating because they quit eating at 1 00 So, in all, it is an interesting book but I think much too stringent for most people to follow And for healthy people who are not diabetic, I m not sure that all that focus on food and glucose levels is good However, I do think that everyone can use good information from the book without necessarily committing to The CR Way

    I read this as to update on the subject, having read a couple books by Walford a few years back At the time, I was racing and couldn t restrict calories to any meaningful extent, and I wanted to be up to date before I got into it Update wise, The CR Way has some new information about limiting glucose and protein, and about the benefits of limited fasting It sof a how to book than a scientific one, though, and the presentation is lightweight if you ll pardon the expression For me, it I read this as to update on the subject, having read a couple books by Walford a few years back At the time, I was racing and couldn t restrict calories to any meaningful extent, and I wanted to be up to date before I got into it Update wise, The CR Way has some new information about limiting glucose and protein, and about the benefits of limited fasting It sof a how to book than a scientific one, though, and the presentation is lightweight if you ll pardon the expression For me, it s a practical plan I m especially enjoying the limited fasting I get home late from work, and enjoy not having to cook I find it much simpler to think of the day as being divided into an eating part and a non eating part both parts have their pleasures Ordinarily, so much of the way we decide what to eat and when is decided by social factors, not by nutrition or even personal desire it s as if when somebody sticks a cookie in front of you, there s all manner of compulsion to eat the thing The distinction the authors make between eating to live and living to eat takes a shot at our supposed identity as consumers, and I like that.Although I can work with a lot of their suggestions, it s not hard to imagine that a lot of people would find them impractical I just chuck anything I don t want to do I can t afford all the medical tests they recommend, and I ll be damned if I m going to par boil raw fruits and vegetables to protect me from the unlikely threat that they re tainted with botulism Every CR book I ve seen has its share of fanatical oddities, and all CR authors I know of suggest you treat your body as a living science experiment That doesn t mean you have to do it.Oh, I ll get a glucose monitor one of these days Right now, I ve gotof a problem with weight loss Not that I wasn t trying to lose weight in the first place, but 25 pounds in two months is a pretty good clip Since I m just going from top to bottom of normal on the BMI chart, I ll run out of weight to lose soon Then we ll see how well this plan does as a lifestyle

    I get why CR is healthy But I wasn t convinced by the information in this book, but by studies read elsewhere The recipes and meal options were well presented I used thisas inspiration for a paleo approach to food.


  6. Jennifer Jennifer says:

    Don t know if I can follow this to the letter, but it contains some great information and advice I m definitely going to try about 75% ot it.

    another CR book worth considering but perhaps a bit extreme
