Are you sure that you are following the model of creation of the 7th day? What about this?

Your mighty deeds of production of faeces and urine on the Sabbath would have been regarded as an abomination by these pious Jews in ancient times. Now you are saying that God is inspiring you to excrete massive quantities on that holy day. I must ask, were these ancient Rabbis wrong? Or has God changed his mind about faeces?

So I have the real reason to weight Nobel in "Physiology and Medicine" for this great and very useful for most world people discovery.

I can make very easy an adaptation of almost every person on this diet if he want
So you're 65, and I'm 67, and according to you if I adopt your diet we'll still be having this silly debate when we're 120 years old? Well, if nothing else, it will give you time to perfect your English.

Of course I can't say from experience what effect any diet would have on a person who is overweight or abuses alcohol and drugs, and I'm not going to start now just to see what happens when I stop.

In another thread some time ago about fasting, I mentioned, and I'll mention again, that in my younger days I did actually try this, and cannot recommend it to anyone who regularly uses dangerous machinery. The bliss of enlightenment and vision has little use if you cut your hands off on a circular saw or your feet off with a chain saw.

So far I've done pretty well by eating well, staying sober and paying attention.

Your suggestion that the seven day week has some religious significance seems rather silly. If we presume that the idea of a week and a month at all are socially useful, what other length of week would work in a 365 day year?

With a little imagination you can find sermons in stones and books in babbling brooks, but it takes an extra dose of silliness to find god in the calendar.

Look please.
There are only 4 so called world religions - Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.
For 3 Abrahamic religions the 7th Day is basically existential thing for 3500 - 1400 years.
It is 3.5 billions of people.
Most of others people use as minimum 1 day a week to be free from their work.
It doesn't matter for them what what week day to choose as the 7th Day.
If the man ignore the 7th Day he looks as wild animals because wild animals have no the 7th Day and have no week format.

Interesting that you left out Hinduism, which has more than twice as many followers as Buddhism and 78 times more followers than Judaism. (Shinto and Sikhism also have more followers than Judaism according to Wikipedia, although I wouldn't call either of them "world religions"):

What does this have to do with the fact that most vegetables are much more pleasant to eat cooked than raw, and that many must be cooked to remove toxins?

And the fact that meat smells good when its cooking does not make those who like the smell hot food drug addicts. Add 'drug' and 'drug addict' to the list of terms you don't understand.

And how in the name of the Gods and Goddesses of Brewing did you get the magical alcohol that gives you the positive effects of intoxication without the negative?
I have drank in my life enough vodka to understand all stages and all nuances of my feelings.
I tell you that all 7 days of my diet I feel as if I drink every hour 0,05 lb of best vodka I has ever drank.
You can ask people that had experience of medical fasting.
They will confirm my feelings.
Give me 2 lb of vodka or whisky on a week time and I will feel myself similar but not so great as from my body producing alkaloids and opiates.

Freud would be having a field day with the "peristaltic catharsis" - which seems to be a fancy name for having a really big bowel movement - and his ideas about stages of psychosexual development.

Very good questions.
I agree to be the object of scientific investigation of consequences of "Diet of New Saturday".

May be to drink 1/4 lb of vodka with nitrogen to feel the difference?
All what I feel being more than 9 months on my diet it is very light and very pleasant creative eforie.
The attractivity of this feeling is so strong that it will easy displace the attractivity of drugs and alcohol.
I am absolutely sure that the same feeling will be by most people that will step by step come to my diet.

You're saying the god who smelled the meat in the courtyard of the Ark of the Covenant was a drug addict? If he went on your diet presumably he would be cured.

You are absolutely right.
It is impossible to clean intestines and stomach with an enema.
Only Peristaltic Catharsis of the 7th Day can clean them very well.

You can agree all you like, but you first need to interest at least one scientist in such an investigation. You don't yet seem to have been able to sufficiently interest even your own cousin, who as a doctor ought to be at least slightly intrigued.

Your emotional state has little to do with being drunk. However, you are definitely demonstrating that you do not fully understand what processes your body is undergoing during your fast if you are incorrectily conflating the sense of dissociation and light-headedness caused by your body consuming itself with the process of fermentation.

I will not dispute this. Those feelings are not caused by your body creating alcohol.

Doubtful. Your feelings are not fact.

And walks not less than 15 miles each day.

I think I would take a small amount of sodium chloride with this diet.

You'll need a large amount. The diet consists mainly of grain soaked in "raw" water, forming fifteen pounds of mash which is then, as far as I can make out, consumed uncooked. I'm trying in vain to imagine what such a repast must look like on the table, if indeed a table, and not a trough, is used. In addition to this, a further five pounds weight of cooked chicken, roots and salad is devoured.

If the consumption of this meal was on YouTube it would go viral.

Forget the "consumption" part. Think what a video of the effects would be . . . or maybe not think about it.

By the way, All days and months contain a vowel.


Anyway, After this uber plans all works out, What if I decide to eat on a Tuesday?

Not so fast. You made specific claims about 500 alkaloids and specific amounts.
Now you say you are willing to be studied to find out what alkaloids are supposedly created?
How did you arrive at the 500 alkaloids number?
Did you find it in a peristaltic catharsis remnant?

That will accomplish nothing. Besides you claim alkaloid production, back it up.

I am sure in opposite thing.
If I will go to the ordinary lifestyle and will eat 3 times a day 2500 kcal a day as most people, my weight for some months will be more than 220 lb.
For me it just mean that the "Diet of New 7th Day" gives a very very good health to a man.
For you may be something opposite.

I was this type of person all my life.
But 2 years ago I have understand the main reason of this.
It is a huge number of components that make our dishes too much attractive to eat.
This is salt, sugar, spices, sauces, all fried.
I began just boil afford meat, fish, potatoes, cereals, legumes, Glass, carrots, cabbage and ate without any restrictions.
My dishes became not tasty and not no tasty.
Unfortunately this time I have not measured my weight, but judging by the trousers and belt I think it has fell from 265 to 250 lb.
I think that lifestyle was a good prelude to my diet.

The Diet of New 7th Day gives people great feeling of the first love, of the first drink, of the first drug, of the first creative idea, invention, discovery forever and almost everyday.
So why not to have a baby in the age of 100.

If you walk 15 miles a day on average you'll likely burn between 1200 and 1800 calories so I think your claim is unlikely unless....
  • You're a metabolic freak who only requires 1000 calories a day to maintain your current weight - unlikely
  • You actually end up consuming far more than 2500 calories - more likely IMO
  • Your claims regarding eating one day a week and walking 15 miles a day are exaggerated - IMO most likely

Please take a look at the schedule sloping saturation curve of list of high developed countries: Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong SAR, Israel, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden.
It proves exactly the trend what I am talking about.
We put more and more billions of dollars in medicine and the life expectancy in most high developed countries do not increase last 5 years.
Liechtenstein looks most fine.
Thank you for this discovery.
I just have felt that something wrong in medicine area but now I can prove it.
Only the total using of Diet of New Saturday will radically improve the situation.

Your claim was that life expectancy hadn't increased in the last 10-15 years. I would not expect much increase in just 5 years, especially when the figure is rounded to the nearest year (bear in mind that an increase from say 79.6 to 80.4 would not be visible as both figures would be rounded to 80).

Having said that I've checked the first five of your listed countries and all but one show an increase in the last 5 years for which figures are available:

Austria: 80 in 2007, 81 in 2012

Belgium: 80 in 2007, 80 in 2012

Finland: 79 in 2007, 81 in 2012

Germany: 80 in 2007, 81 in 2012

Hong Kong SAR: 82 in 2007, 83 in 2012

What this table proves is that your guess that life expectancy has stopped increasing is as completely and utterly wrong as all your other uninformed guesses.

ETA: For most people eating tasty meals is one of the great pleasures of life. A diet which requires that meals be made as unappetising as possible is never going to catch on.

http://www.anti-aging-guide.com/30fasting.php
Thank you very much for this material.
First of all 2 questions.
Is it interesting to you to try one of those fastings?
What is your opinion can we find somebody who want to try one of those fasting?
According the article the people who live this lifestyle eat in a week period 7000 kcal in one variant and 10200 - 10500 kcal in the other variant.
I eat in Saturday about 7000 - 9000 kcal.
So in this principal case - how much to eat weekly we are at the same position.
I can add that may be enough 4900 kcal a week on my diet to carry weight on mass index near 18.5 - 19.
I wish to make this experiment but not now.
According 2 graphs they have 5 - 6 weeks of fasting a year.
It means 35 - 42 days of fasting a year and the same time periods of slow recovery that is not full fasting and is not full eating.
They expect the prolonging of their healthy life at 40 - 50 years average.
My diet was designed on this base of different systems of medical fastings and systems of raw foodists.
It gives me real ability to keep fastings 7 - 9 times more days - 312 days in a year 6 days every week and get fast "recovery" in the 7th Day.
I don't like the word "recovery" because I feel myself very healthy and strong all 6 work days without food.
Let us think that the days of their slow recovery are the days of fasting too.
In this case I expect from my diet minimal healthy life increasing 148 years and maximal is 445 years.

Sure, a good dump can be satisfying, but I'm not convinced saving it up for a once-a-week evacuation turns it into some kind of mystical experience.

Because presumably the faeces and urine are physical substances too.
On the first step you have to understand that the organism of a man when he keeps 1 and more days fasting produces alkaloids and opiates that work as doping.
All other dopings are bad for health.
This is the only doping that good for health.
The number and types of alkaloids and opiates that gives my diet to my organism will clarify by scientists.

I don't know.
