Fitness, Diet, Exercise And Caloric Restriction Are Not Enough For Longevity
While the entire hormone supplement/replacement therapy program has been shown to reverse biological age by as much as 27 years, ALL of these so-called fitness gurus did not even live to the age of 100. Most did not even live to the age of 80, some dying in their 50s and 60s. Let’s look at some of these well-known and charismatic figures and examine the difference between the programs they represented and promoted and the program described in this book.
Consider famous fitness guru Jack LaLanne – the longest living of all gurus. Nobody could exercise more every day or eat healthier than he does. And yet he died in 2011 at the age of 96 after a simple case of the flu that progressed to pneumonia (reported cause of death). His death indicated that his immune system (white blood cells and lymphocytes, etc.) could not and did not fight the infection effectively. He had 24 years to reach full lifespan, but he didn’t. This means that his apparent fitness for decades was not sufficient to reverse his biological age, maintain truly good health and wellness, and reach God’s promised age of 120.
Many other famous fitness, diet, and exercise advocates had even shorter lifespans than LaLanne’s, which would suggest their programs lacked the essential scientific component of longevity: optimal hormone levels. (The complete hormone supplementation/replacement therapy program as outlined in this book provides the medical technology and methodology necessary to achieve this ideal balance.)
dr Robert Atkins, inventor of the famous Atkins diet, basically gave the go-ahead for a fat- and protein-based diet with severely restricted carbohydrates (except for a limited amount of certain fruits and vegetables). Essentially, Atkins doomed carbs to the “Hall of Food Shame.” After his death in 2003 at the age of 72, it was revealed that Atkins himself had a history of serious heart problems, including myocardial infarction (heart attack), congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. Some have suggested that these conditions led to his death, which was caused instantly by a fall on the ice. Others have claimed that his heart attack was caused by a chronic infection (low immunity). (Robert Atkins’ lifespan was 48 years shorter than God’s promised 120 years, suggesting that his apparent fitness was not sufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting health.)
Adelle Davis was one of the country’s best-known early nutritionists, and she claimed that almost every disease could be prevented with proper diet and nutrition. In particular, she emphasized the importance of eating unprocessed foods, avoiding hydrogenated and saturated fats and excess sugar, and taking vitamin supplements to help prevent deficiencies. She was also a movement advocate. Her recommendations have remained standard diet/fitness guidelines to this date, and yet Davis succumbed to cancer in 1974 at the age of 70 (Fitness, insufficient to reverse her biological age and maintain true and lasting health.)
Bob Delmonteque, known to fans and followers as “Doctor Bob,” was a popular bodybuilder and fitness instructor among Hollywood stars and celebrities. He maintained his own chiseled physique throughout his life and died in 2011 at the age of 85. (Bob Delmonteque’s lifespan was 35 years shorter than God’s promised 120 years, indicating that his apparent fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)
James (Jimmy) Fixx seemed like a paragon of fitness in the 1970s. Often credited with starting America’s running craze, Fixx has been a vocal proponent of running and jogging to stay fit and achieve better health. He himself ran 10 miles a day in addition to other intense exercise. Friends described him as in good physical condition. Despite this, in 1984, at the age of 52, he suffered a fatal heart attack while jogging near his home in Vermont. (James Fixx’s lifespan was 68 years shorter than God’s promised 120 years, suggesting that his apparent fitness was not sufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)
Robert Kowalski was another health guru and focused on the dangers of high cholesterol. His New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure was a New York Times bestseller for 115 weeks. Although “everyone” may have read his books, he still died at the age of 65 (2007). The cause of death was a pulmonary embolism; Remember he was 35 years old when he had his first heart attack and bypass surgery. (Robert Kowalski’s lifespan was 55 years shorter than God’s promised 120 years, suggesting that his apparent fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting health.)
dr Michel Montignac developed the famous Montignac Diet to help himself lose weight. He was well known both in his native France and around the world. His research focused on the glycemic index and the distinction between good and bad carbohydrates. (For example, whole grains were “good”; refined white flour was “bad.”) Montignac’s book Eat Yourself Slim sold 17 million copies. His theories were the inspiration behind the South Beach Diet. Montignac died of prostate cancer in 2010 at the age of 66. (This proves, by the way, that a low-glycemic diet cannot prevent cancer, which in turn is a sign of weak immunity.) (Michel Montignac’s lifespan was 54 years shorter than the god’s promised 120 years, suggesting that his apparent was not fit enough to reverse biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)
Nathan Pritikin was another well-known health guru. (His Pritikin diet and exercise program, co-authored with science writer Patrick M. McGrady, Jr., was hugely popular, as were his health centers.) An inventor with a passion for nutrition and fitness, Pritikin was one of the first to the advertisement made the link between diet and heart disease. Although his diet and exercise plans allowed him to achieve excellent cardiovascular health, they weren’t enough to fight the leukemia that later ravaged his body. He committed suicide in a hospital bed at the age of 69 (1985). Some said the cancer may have taken root in his body before he formulated his diet and exercise regimen. That may be true; however, it would only result in his programs failing to achieve longevity as cancer is still one of the leading causes of death! (Nathan Pritikin’s lifespan was 51 years shorter than God’s promised 120 years, suggesting that his apparent fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)
dr Roy Lee Walford, a pioneer in the field of calorie restriction, was credited with discovering that laboratory mice nearly doubled their expected lifespan when fed a diet that restricted their calorie intake by 50 percent. Despite this, he himself died at the age of 79 (2004). The cause of death was respiratory failure as a complication of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), an autoimmune disease. It is interesting and important to note that immune system impairment has long been associated with calorie restricted diets. (Roy Lee Walford’s lifespan was 41 years shorter than God’s promised 120 years, suggesting that his apparent fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)
Suffice it to say that advocating fitness through exercise, good diet/nutrition, and even calorie restriction prevented none of these health professionals from dying before age 100. None of them reached God’s promised age of 120. Why? In my professional opinion, everyone just failed to check their telomere lengths and regularly check their hormone levels.
