Neuroprotective potential of the Bahadori leanness program: A “mini-fast with exercise” strategy
This concept continues to intrigue me. Regular readers of Updates will know that I feel that the increase in mitochondrial number and function with caloric restriction w/o nutrient restriction is a potentially very powerful tool but hard to get compliance. There have been variations on this theme, such as alternate day calorie restriction.
This concept looks at calorie restriction w/in the context of an aggressive aerobic workout in the middle of a fast, with appropriate supplementation to support fat oxidation, to provide both lean body composition as well as neuroprotection. There is quite a bit of supporting research to go along with this concept, making it a strong contender for a protective lifestyle against most chronic diseases.
