  • CRON diet in the Biosphere

    This isn't new news, but it was new to me. Fascinating.

    Wow. I did not know any of that. Thank you for posting.

      Alan Alda interviewed Wolford for Scientific American's "Frontiers" as he was preparing a BAS and the poor guy looked like he could barely wield the knife. He also looked (or really acted) about ten years older than his actual age. My impression anyway.

      The CRON diet apparently works as advertised but the question is "so what?"

      Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

        Yep -- I definitely want to look like a bony and starving old lady!
        Life is an ongoing Experiment of One, so here's to science!

            Who would recommend a diet that made everybody grumpy and starving the entire time? Also, lower cholesterol isn't necessarily healthy. VERY low cholesterol levels correspond with higher mortality...

            Also, being a web developer, the first thing I thought when I read this post title was if it was possible to schedule a cron job to automatically make me a steak. I bet they could do that in Star Trek... I'm waiting for the day we have real-life replicators, where you could get something with the nutrient profile of grass-fed beef but the flavor and texture of chocolate cake.

              I feel bad now, if Wikipedia is to be believed he died of ALS in '04, that interview was filmed a couple of years prior. In light of that he actually looks pretty good. Made it to 79 w/ Lou Gehrig's Disease, he was doing something right.

                  What was that movie called? I had no idea Kylie Minogue had a part in it. May need to see if it is on instant NefFlix.
                  Trying a journal. We'll see how long that lasts....

                      This has been studies in worms and mice and prolongs health and survival in them quite well.

                      I do wonder if on-going caloric restriction to the point of being so thin would be necessary or if periodic fasting could produce similar results.

                        It seems to me that the problem here wasn't CR but lack of 'ON.' I don't think human life can be 'sustained' on raising their own food as they were doing in the biosphere. Where was their protein? I think calorie restriction is a good idea (most of us eat too much), but I want my Primal food, especially my fish, meat and eggs--not just veggies.

                          Can't remember where, but I'm sure I remember hearing/reading that IF'ing aids with protecting the telomeres and therefore helps slow/prevent aging... thinking thinking....

                            Found it, I think: "From telomeres to Australian radio" a Robb Wolf interview with Dr. Dave Woynarowski

                              Could not have said it better myself.
