Lecture: Intermittent Fasting for Health and Longevity

Event announcement

We often hear the advice to eat frequent small meals and healthy snacks throughout the day.  This supposedly helps maintain consistent blood sugar, holds hunger at bay, and supplies us with the energy we need to perform in athletics or daily life.

Not coincidentally, an entire industry of snack foods and energy drinks has arisen to exploit this message.

But did humans evolve to eat so frequently? Recently, scientists, wellness experts, and everyday people have begun to uncover the advantages of reduced meal frequency.

I am very happy to have discovered Todd Becker, whose philosophy I share closely and whose knowledge I respect deeply… and we happen to work in the same town! So I invited him to speak about intermittent fasting as it relates to his area of interest and study, hormesis, the biological phenomenon through which improved health, body composition, and longevity can be achieved.

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, join us for an eye-opening one-hour lecture by Todd Becker on Intermittent Fasting.

Todd will distill for us the science behind Intermittent Fasting, and share practical tips on how to try it for yourself for maximum gain and with minimum pain.

I hope those of you who live close by can join us for this lecture.

Wednesday, May 18, 2011
7pm to 8pm
at The 3rd Door
131 Lytton Ave
Palo Alto, Ca. 94301

Todd Becker is a Bay Area scientist and writer.  His blog, Getting Stronger, advocates a new self-improvement philosophy called Hormetism, based on the application of controlled, progressive stress to improve health and resilience. He has found intermittent fasting to be one of the most direct routes to healthful weight loss and body recomposition, as well as other aspects of improved health.

    As a British fan, any chance of publishing a transcript, or audio or video recording?

    Please let this be the next YouTube sensation to go viral…

    Video or transcript would be awesome.

    We’ll see what we can do with a camera!
    Thanks for your interest and enthusiasm.
    It will be awesome to meet local readers of TLS, so if you can join us, please come.
    Open to the public.

    And since intermittent fasting means intermittent eating, we’ll have food and drinks!

    If I didn’t live 100s (or 1000s?) of miles away, I’d go!

    I’d love to see you do some videos on the blog. Decent HD cams are easy & pretty cheap to get these days and Youtube is free… 🙂

      Todd may have someone taping his lecture, and he’s given me permission to use the taping. I’m also talking to a friend who does video taping.

      I believe it will be no problem getting videos for those who live too far to make it to the lecture. 🙂

    Please please try to video tape this if you can. Johnny, your site rocks and I sincerely appreciate what you do. I also appreciate you turning us on to Todd’s site. You cannot imagine how stoked I am right now. Thank you so much!

    Btw, If I could come I would. However I am across country, so not gonna happen. 😦
