Kill Cancer with the Ketogenic Diet?

After being diagnosed with metastatic cancer and given only three months to live, Dr. Fred Hatfield turned to the Keto diet and succeeded in removing cancer from his body.

“The cancer was gone!” he exclaimed. “Completely. To this day there’s no trace of it. And it’s been over a year.”

Apparently, cancer cells need carbohydrates to live as all cells do. But when you are on a keto diet (no carbs or very few carbs), normal cells turn to the next source of energy—fat, or “ketones” when you are on the keto diet. Cancer cells, however, cannot turn to another source for energy. They are defective in this way, and therefore cannot survive without carbohydrates.

Dr. Hatfield went on the keto diet, and effectively killed off the very cells that were trying to kill him. He won.

This is not an isolated case, either. A team of scientists at the University of South Florida lead by Dr. Dominic D’Agostino is conducting research in metabolic therapy and the idea of starving cancer cells by depriving them of carbohydrates. They have seen this kind of success many times with lab mice as well as human beings.

Here at 10in30 Fitness we are excited about these findings as we are all about research and trying the latest methods of health and fitness. If we were not already excited about the keto diet and it’s virtually miraculous effects on body composition, we are truly in awe now.

Not only will you lower your body fat drastically, but it looks like you will also prevent cancer cells from growing and even kill those that might be already present.

Jungle Gym Bicep/Tricep Blasters!

Bored of your gym routine? Arms stop growing? Try the 10in30

Jungle Gym Bicep and Tricep Blasters!

Build big bad biceps and trump truly tremendous triceps! Take a break from dumbbells, leave the barbell at the gym, forget cables and curl machines. You’re going to use something that weighs WAY MORE:

YOUR BIG OLE SELF!

You’ll be using your own bodyweight to blast the heck out of your upper arms and get a pump like no other. That’s because you’ll do dropsets of both bicep curls and tricep extensions with more weight than you normally curl and press with your triceps. How are you going to do that, you ask?

Your lats are going to help out a bit in order to allow your biceps and triceps to lift more weight, namely YOUR bodyweight. That’s right, the lats will assist both the biceps during curls and the triceps during extensions. In fact, you will see some swelling on your lats as well.

So get yourself a Jungle Gym suspension system and do THIS:

So that you don’t have to lower the handles for triceps after you do curls like I did, (tri’s are stronger than bi’s) just keep the handles at the same height for both sets but be sure to start really low so that your triceps get a damn good workout in the first few sets. It might be too hard for your bicep curls, so use more of a rowing motion, putting your back into it and bringing your elbows back behind you a bit. Don’t row too much, only as much as you need to finish your 6 reps. Cool?

“So how many reps? How many sets? Alternating? Back to back? What will I do???”

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL DO, BIFF!

Why do I recommend the Jungle Gym vs the TRX suspensions system? Because it costs only $50 compared to $100 or more. See THIS PAGE for my writeup on the many exercises you can do with it.
