I agree and nod in agreement with your remarks, with the exception of the combustible engine and nuclear weapons. Our planet was warming and cooling, sometimes at much greater degrees than one is aware of today for millennia, in fact billions of years, before the appearance of man, certainly prior to the debut of man, automobile or airplane. One volcanic eruption and the dispersal of it’s contents into the atmosphere contradict all prognostications of “Anthropogenic Global Warming” alarmists and adherents. Al Gore’s dire warnings and faux-documentary -“An Inconvenient Truth,” predicted Earth’s total destruction years ago, but political correctness prevented his confrontation and further, ostracized climate scientists who diverged from their politically correct opinions as “Climate Deniers, ” Completrly absurd.
A short fast will actually decrease bodyfat stores, improve your carbohydrate metabolism, protect muscle, increase your metabolism (shown in fasts up to 36–48 hours), and help you live longer. That said, in the diet that follows, you’ll reserve fasting for off days, as you need a full supply of energy on training days to ensure an effective session and full recovery. Your workouts need to stay productive so the body sees muscle as something necessary to keep. Fat stores will be a bit more expendable because your body will want to preserve muscle to keep up with your workouts.
