The NiTOR Protein Challenge

Want to understand the science behind the revolutionary Elite HD product? The “NiTOR Protein Challenge” seminar features David Sherwood, PhD in Molecular Biology, explaining what led him to formulating the NiTOR Elite HD whey protein complex.

Learn why:

  • NiTOR Elite HD replaces the need for BCAAs, Pre-workout and Post-workout products
  • How to dramatically increase your protein’s performance, even if you don’t use NiTOR
  • Why slow-release proteins (including food) are only 1/3 as effective as liquid proteins
  • Why most proteins give you gas and bloating
  • The limiting factors that stop your body from using protein, even when it’s available
  • What the TOR pathway is, how it works, and why

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is nothing new. Humans have fasted for most of their history, whether it’s during the typical overnight period, during more extended periods of food scarcity, or for religious reasons.
What is new is that clinical research on IF’s benefits for health and longevity is beginning to catch up.

Data show that IF, when done properly, might help extend life, regulate blood glucose, control blood lipids, manage body weight, gain (or maintain) lean mass, and more.

Rather than something we’re forced to endure – a result of poor food availability or cultural expectations – IF is becoming something that health and physique-oriented people are seeking out in order to keep their bodies in top shape.

The proposed benefits of IF in animals and humans read like a laundry list of “look better,” “feel better,” “live longer” physiological changes. These include:

REDUCED
blood lipids (including decreased triglycerides and LDL cholesterol)
blood pressure (perhaps through changes in sympathetic/parasympathetic activity)
markers of inflammation (including CRP<, IL-6, TNF, BDNF, and more)
oxidative stress (using markers of protein, lipid, and DNA damage)
risk of cancer (through a host of proposed mechanisms; we’ll save them for another review)

INCREASED
cellular turnover and repair (called autophagocytosis)
fat burning (increase in fatty acid oxidation later in the fast)
growth hormone release later in the fast (hormonally mediated)
metabolic rate later in the fast (stimulated by epinephrine and norepinephrine release)

IMPROVED
appetite control (perhaps through changes in PPY and ghrelin)
blood sugar control (by lowering blood glucose and increasing insulin sensitivity)
cardiovascular function (by offering protection against ischemic injury to the heart)
effectiveness of chemotherapy (by allowing for higher doses more frequently)
neurogenesis and neuronal plasticity (by offering protection against neurotoxins)

Sample:

Eat in 5-6 hour window (example 5pm-11pm)

During the day do this 2-3 times a day
1 scoop of Xtend BCAAs
5 grams glutamine
3 grams fish oils

Also during the day coffee, green tea and diet soda is fine. Sip water as well.

Post workout just have a low/no carb protein.

Every night meal should be:
150-175 grams of protein
150 grams carbs
90 grams of fat
