After watching and comparing the two vids, What is your opinion of 7 years of 'perfect idealized lifestyle' with all supplements you could ever dream, no stress, yoga, plenty of money, Hawaii, etc.

Nov 2016: [www.youtube.com]

Mar 2009: [www.youtube.com]

But does he looks older?

Cassar looks great, his skin is fantastic, full head of hair, excellent muscle tone and symmetry. Look at his latest video. Proof of higher fat low sugar ketogenic diet. He does eat eggs though which is probably why he's doing so well...

Unfortunately when you're stuck on making money from the diet there's a lot of nonsense that starts to come out just like when I watched his video how I start my day. Full of nonsense, ugh

He looks much older in the most recent video.
Too many supplements.
The body knows best how to get what it needs from the regular food we eat.

Haha... I'm honestly considering just deleting my account on here. I don't really see the point anymore. It's all "fat bad, high-carb good, don't worry about protein, healthy fats or minerals just eat fruit, if you had problems with high-carb it's your fault and you weren't pure, etc.". This isn't a source of learning or anything interesting anymore, it's mainly a source of bickering, dogma, and laughable delusion of grandeur comments.

He's 56 years old give the guy a break, he looks damn good for his age. Noone in my experience is immortal or immune to aging past 40-50 though they claim that they might be...

And to all the supplement naysayers lets see some HD videos of you.

Age is not the issue.
When it is questionable nutrition let's have the courage to say it.
So much effort and the gains are minimal.
Where is the food?
To get these nutrients you need to drink these liquids including Vodka and others.
This guy put his pictures out there with no shirt on to show us how well he is.
We have the right to question the method and results

Just as everyone else has the right to question the high-fruit and 80/10/10 method, because I've seen not ONE person following this type of diet ever share any impressive cellular nutrient results. The fruit-based, high-carb diet is questionable nutrition. Looking "young" is subjective, could be due to genetics, and looks aren't a determining factor when it comes to health. One's appearance can be altered by many things outside of diet.

If your diet revolves around fruit... where are you getting zinc, selenium, iodine, protein, bio-available iron, and enough ALA to manufacture EPA/DHA?

If I were living in a tropical land where I can grow my own fruits, I would make fruits the basis of my diet.

I believe in post harvest nutrient deterioration so I cannot make fruits the basis of my diet.

Most of the foods I eat I grow them indoor. Micro greens, grasses, and sprouts. Very efficient, very nutritious. I use fruits as a snack in between real meals.

Let's talk about food one can prepare into meals for a whole family to eat, not supplements, powders, vodkas.

The big misconception is that just because the body needs iron or zinc let's take some supplements. Give the body the foods it needs and it will build from it the nutrients that are necessary to life.

One of Cassar remedy for good health is to spend 30 minutes in the sauna. You have to drink something or put some thing on your body to do that. Unthinkable. Food and good nutrition have failed and we need to find other ways to survive.

Total non sense for good health.

Life is way more than food, he's doing physical cleansing protocols to keep his skin open. Native peoples did sweat lodges for the same reason. The vodka is a skin cleansing agent to strip off the outer skin debris and open the pores so that when he takes a sauna or exercises he transpires easily. Most people are clogged up and stagnant, his river is free flowing and clean.

Again this is beyond just taking the stance that all health derives from food, that's total nonsense. It's like saying that inversions, or exercise have nothing to do with health.

As far as supplements, it's as John Rose says that since we have descended we have a 3rd set of needs. For those who don't want to go back to cave man lifestyles like Daniel Vitalis hunting bears now, supplements are a good route.

Even the Blue Zone Seventh Day Adventists in their studies on their population have found that strict vegans live on the average years shorter than the ones who include eggs and fish, so that's supplementation and it works.

But the whole thing couldn't be sauna supplements and vodka

Food should be the core.

We maintain life with another form of life

I do go to the gym but do not need to be in the sauna for 30 minutes or drink vodka for cleansing the food I eat does the cleansing already

He is into the diet as well, he eats low sugar, little fruit, tons of raw greens, lots of ferments, and some cooked food as well as 2 eggs a day. He doesn't really drink the vodka, he uses it on his skin to cleanse the pores. You obviously don't know anything about him, so...

Ok so the first statement is nothing more than your opinion. There's nothing wrong with powders when it comes to pure nutrition and in fact much of the time can have even more nutrition than the fresh food. They can be a very effective way to increase one's nutrient intake and are produced from fresh whole foods. You lose the "energy" from the food but retain phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, etc.

I don't even know where your second statement stems from? More like let's eat foods that give us enough zinc and bio-available iron. Your body isn't producing iron and zinc out of thin air just because it needs it. There are some good things to take from Natural Hygiene and some things to completely throw out the window because they're delusional and downright unhealthy.

Powders have no water.

They cannot match the benefits that come with foods that have their organic water intact.

Nutrients have to be assimilated.

Says who? Your predetermined, unproven dietary ideas? Powders are usually concentrated so they actually contain more nutrients. They're not fresh, but they have more nutrients. Every single food you eat doesn't need to contain water in order for you to be hydrated.

For example, if you're eating a sprout salad... why not toss in a teaspoon of moringa leaf powder?

I have a moringa leaf powder that per one teaspoon contains:

6 grams of protein
202% Vitamin A
50% Vitamin C
180% Vitamin E
150% Vitamin K
192% Vitamin B2
40% Calcium
25% Iron
11.2 mg lutein
320 mg chlorophyll
+ more

Plus it's CHEAP! And you could easily double the nutrition with another teaspoon.

You have a point if I were eating a salad of lettuce and tomato I bought from the store.
I would need some powders.

But the micro greens I am eating are still growing and packed with nutrients.

I do not have nutrients issue.

Grasses are among the top nutritious foods on earth. Powder cannot match grass juices.

The human body is 75 percent water

The food we eat should match that composition

"But the micro greens I am eating are still growing and packed with nutrients."

Where is the nutritional information regarding these micro-greens? They're most certainly packed with phytochemicals... but as far as protein and minerals, very little information exists.


"I do not have nutrients issue."

So where do you get enough bio-available iron, zinc, selenium, iodine, protein and enough ALA to manufacture enough EPA/DHA?


"The food we eat should match that composition"

Based on what evidence?

nothing wrong with my health, i don't have any interest in disseminating my photos on the internet as I have seen what happens to people as a result.

as for your absurd statement that you repeat ad nauseum about not getting those nutrients, they are available in regular fruits and veggies, just not in the amounts that you claim are necessary. no point to arguing that once again.

i was not bashing cassar, except to say that much of what he was saying in a video was nonsense, (as well as being a sales pitch for all kinds of nonsense supplements streaming on the bottom of the screen) for example, pouring fulvic acid (if i am recalling correctly) in some soaking nuts and the water immediately turned brown and then claiming it was the acidic fulvic acid having a chemical reaction or stripping the nuts as opposed to what was really happening which was the fulvic acid is brown, hence the water turned brown. i was 5 minutes into his video and he still hadn't finished talking about what he drank upon arising in the morning.

i think panchito may have been implying that he had aged more than expected, but perhaps so has doug graham. not that it matters, we're all just doing our best, trying to live an enjoyable life, which should be the focus.

Before all these minerals were identified by scientists how was humanity surviving?

You are probably missing many that are not discovered yet. So how are you getting those minerals and nutrients that are have not been isolated by scientists yet?

I do not count minerals, I do not count calories, I listen to my body.

[epiphanutrition.webs.com] (Me, picture taken this summer)

Fresh, I don't say these things about nutrients because I'm trying to act superior or more knowledgeable... it's simply a fact that fruits don't contain certain nutrients. There's more to it than adding in fruits and veggies to CRON-O-Meter and having it say 100%+. You have to account for the fact that non-heme iron has a low bio-availability, environmental chemicals that attack the thyroid and deplete it of iodine on top of iodine being depleted in soils already, etc. Zinc, ALA, selenium, and protein simply just aren't in high quantities in fruits.

Comparing humanity thousands of years ago to today is ridiculous. First, back then you ate ANYTHING to survive. This is not an indication of what is OPTIMAL. Second, the world we live in now is vastly different than it used to be. We're surrounded by far more toxins and the stress levels of modern-day society are very high. Both of these things require the body to use up nutrients. Stress depletes B-vitamins, for example. Chlorine depletes iodine. Toxins deplete selenium. So many factors deplete nutrients nowadays.

It's great that you listen to your body, but that doesn't mean your diet isn't falling short of various nutrients.

Many people here do not claim to be 'health coaches' (self made profession with self made stories) or create exotic ideas to gain pseudo medals and boost themselves. The point is gaining wisdom and avoiding getting suck down on an all day ordeal of imaginary rituals and beliefs.
