Fitness, Diet, Exercise And Caloric Restriction Are Not Enough For Longevity

While the total hormone supplementation/replacement therapy program has been demonstrated to reverse biological age of up to 27 years, ALL of those so-called fitness gurus did not even attain the age of 100. Most did not even reach the age of 80, and some died in their 50s and 60s. Let’s look at several of these well-known and charismatic figures, examining the difference between the programs they espoused and promoted and the program described throughout this book.

Consider the famous fitness guru Jack LaLanne- the longest living of all the gurus. No one could exercise more or eat more healthfully on a daily basis than he did. And yet, he died in 2011 at the age of 96, following a bout with a simple case of influenza that led to pneumonia (reported cause of death). His death indicated that his immune system (white blood cells and lymphocytes, etc.) could not, and did not, effectively fight off the infection. He had 24 years to go to attain the full life span, but he didn’t. This means that his decades-long seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age, maintain true overall good health and wellness, and attain the God-promised age of 120.

Many other famous proponents of fitness, diet, and exercise had even shorter life spans than LaLanne’s, which would indicate that their programs lacked the essential scientific components of longevity: optimal level of hormones. (The total hormone supplementation/replacement therapy program, as described throughout this book, offers the medical technology and methodology necessary to achieve this ideal balance.)

Dr. Robert Atkins, creator of the famous Atkins Diet, basically gave the okay to eat a diet based on fat and protein, with carbohydrates (other than a limited amount of certain fruits and vegetables) severely restricted. In essence, Atkins condemned carbohydrates to the “hall of dietary 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 hypertension. Some have suggested that these conditions led to his death, which was immediately caused by a fall on the ice. Others have maintained that his heart attack was caused by a chronic infection (low immunity). (Robert Atkins’s life span was 48 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

Adelle Davis was one of this country’s best-known early nutritionists, and she contended that almost any disease could be prevented through 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 guard against deficiencies. She was also an exercise advocate. Her recommendations have remained standard nutrition/fitness guidelines even as of this writing, and yet Davis succumbed to cancer in 1974 at the age of 70. (Adelle Davis’s life span was 50 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that her seeming fitness what insufficient to reverse her biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

Bob Delmonteque-known to fans and followers as “Doctor Bob”-was a popular bodybuilder and a fitness trainer among the stars and celebrities in Hollywood. He maintained his own chiseled physique throughout his lifetime, dying in 2011 at the age of 85. (Bob Delmonteque’s life span was 35 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

James (Jimmy) Fixx seemed to be a paragon of fitness in the 1970s. Often credited with starting the American running craze, Fixx was a vocal proponent of running and jogging in order to remain fit and attain better health. He himself ran 10 miles a day, in addition to performing other types of vigorous exercise. Friends described him as being in fine physical condition. Nevertheless, he had a fatal heart attack in 1984 at the age of 52 while jogging near his home in Vermont. (James Fixx’s Life span was 68 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

Robert Kowalski was another health guru, and he focused on the dangers of high cholesterol. His New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure was a New York Times bestseller for 115 weeks. Although “everyone” might have read his books, he still died at the age of 65 (in 2007). The cause of death was a pulmonary embolism; keep in mind he was age 35 when he had his first heart attack and bypass surgery. (Robert Kowalski’s life span was 55 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

Dr. Michel Montignac developed the famous Montignac Diet to help himself lose weight. He was renowned both in his native France and all over 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. In 2010, Montignac died of prostate cancer at the age of 66. (Incidentally, this proves that a low-glycemic diet cannot prevent cancer, itself a sign of low immunity.) (Michel Montignac’s life span was 54 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

Nathan Pritikin was another well-known health guru. (His Pritikin Program for Diet and Exercise, Coauthored with science writer Patrick M. McGrady, Jr., was quite popular, as were his health centers.) An inventor with a passion for nutrition and fitness, Pritikin was one of the first to promote the connection between diet and heart disease. Although his diet and exercise regimens enabled him to achieve excellent cardiovascular health, they were not enough to combat the leukemia that later ravaged his body. He committed suicide in the hospital bed at the age of 69 (in 1985). Some said the cancer could have established itself in his body before he formulated his diet and exercise program. That might be true; however, it would only provide his programs inadequacy vis-à-vis achieving longevity, as cancer is still one of the most common causes of death! (Nathan Pritikin’s life span was 51 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming 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 caloric restriction, was credited with discovering that laboratory mice almost doubled their expected life spans when fed a diet that restricted their caloric intake by 50 percent. Nevertheless, he himself died at the age of 79 (in 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 disorder. It is interesting and important to note that immune-system impairment has long been associated with calorie-restricted diets. (Roy Lee Walford’s life span was 41 years shorter than the God-promised 120 years, indicating that his seeming fitness was insufficient to reverse his biological age and maintain true and lasting good health.)

Suffice it to say that advocating for fitness through exercise, good diet/nutrition, and even caloric restriction did not save any of these health experts from dying before the age of 100. Not one of them attained the God-promised age of 120. The reason for this? In my professional medical opinion, it is simply that they all missed checking their telomere lengths and regularly maintaining their hormone levels.
