What Does Dr. Freddy Eat to be so Healthy at almost 80 years old?
Dr. Freddy Ulan the inventor of Nutrition Response Testing back in the late 80’s shares his life learned wisdom with his students and people who seek his advice. Freddy now in his late seventies is more active than most 50 year old’s! He still does research daily and lectures around the world and at his school in Clearwater, Florida on a regular basis. He is constantly passing on his “life lessons” with students like myself who have taken and passed his rigorous 2 year course curriculum so that we can help all of you with natural methods to support the body. Here is one of his recent emails to a gentleman who was losing weight too fast and looking “unhealthy” while this went on. The gentleman was eating too much sugar and starches in an effort to gain back the weight quickly from carbs. But this was “bad” weight based on excessive sugar metabolism and not a balanced diet metabolism which in the end made him unhealthy, weak and sickly looking.
Here was Dr. Freddy’s diet recommendations based on his own lifestyle.
“I personally maintain my weight (and good looks) by supplementing my protein intake with a protein powder in various natural flavors. Standard Process and Perfect Amino are the brands I prefer.
In the morning I have a “protein shake” which consists of a scoop (about 6.5 gms) of strawberry flavored Perfect Aminos (available in Dr. D’s office) plus 1 scoop of Perfect Greens (from the same company) plus scoop of L-Ribose (5 gms — a beneficial sugar) plus 1 scoop of carnitine (5 gms of a protein specific for building and repairing muscle tissue). I blend this in with a handful of re-hydrated organic prunes (I soak them overnight in very clean water which they absorb and into which they excrete most of their sugar — and I throw that sugary water away) and add enough good water to make a 12 ounce smoothie. This holds me well for several hours while I exercise such as a good walk or bike ride or swim — which builds muscle or at least supports better muscle tone.
For lunch I eat a high protein vegetable quiche I bake by putting a package of mixed non-starchy vegetables into a Pyrex baking dish with a dozen organic eggs and bake in my toaster oven — I eat a quarter of this each day with a half an avocado. And often have a salad of a good organic lettuce with sliced organic cucumbers and other good garden veggies.
Mid-afternoon I have a snack using a scoop of Perfect Aminos Chocolate flavored (actually pure cacao sweetened with a little monk fruit) Power Meal plus a half scoop of their vanilla power meal plus a scoop of their Perfect Greens and another scoop of L-Ribose with enough good water to make a 12 ounce thick-shake.
For dinner I may have some wild caught salmon (about 8 ounces) or organic chicken breast or a few poached or fried eggs (if fried, it’s in organic butter or coconut or olive oil) with a half an avocado plus some steamed or otherwise cooked organic veggies such as in a homemade vegetable soap I blend up.
The above is what I have evolved for myself over quite some time, to ensure that I am getting plenty of good nutritious food while not creating inflammation and while maintaining and/or improving muscle mass.
My weight also dropped (from a high of 165 to 150) but I look and feel better at this weight (which is a few pounds above my prior most optimal “fighting” weight of my youth: 145).
Also I occasionally splurge by eating a slice of a Keto type of bread (usually gluten-free made of almond flour, etc.) and on occasion have a low-carb high good-fat dessert such as a cheesecake made from organic dairy or coconut plus almond flour crust with some organic blueberries on top)
Sometimes, if I wake up in the middle of night feeling hungry —I handle by taking 5-10 Perfect Amino tablets with another half an avocado.
This dietary regime has been working real well for me. It has been evolving over time, and who knows how it will continue to evolve.
The reason I use Perfect Aminos as my supplemental protein source is because my body reacts poorly to milk based proteins such as whey— which is also a great muscle builder if the body can handle it. Many people with immune based inflammatory illness cannot.
Perfect Amino is vegetable based and is well tolerated by most bodies, especially those who have suffered from immune compromising health challenges in prior years. We(Ulan Institute) recommend it to slowdown cachexic muscle-wasting in cancer patients, and to speed up recovery in high-performance athletes. “
