Specific low Arginine Starvation Diet Slows Cancer Progression – Mercola.com

  • The article talks about starvation diet low on sugar and protein adequate on oils
  • It emphasizes avoidance of Argninine  (an amino acid)
  • What this boils down to is a starvation diet high on veggies and oils and low on everything else
  • Argninine is found in high levels in sesame and other seeds and nuts and in soy
  • Argninine is found in high levels in various animal proteins as well
  • Foods low in Argninine are  veggies and  fruit and oils
  • But Dr Mercola also recommends drastically limiting sugar so that excludes most fruit
  • So this article seems to support starvation diets that are based on :
    1. vegetables
    2. Small amounts of low sugar fruits and avocados and olives
    3. oils like olive oil, coconut oil, krill oil, flax seed oil (used in the Budwig Diet)

conclusion: In  the diet suggested by Dr Mercola the energy comes primarily from the oils  and small amounts from the veggies and fruit. It is similar to veggie juice fasting with the addition of much roughage from the vegetables and extra calories from the oils. He also recommends intermittent fasting on a daily and weekly basis. Its natural because animals seem to avoid food when they don’t feel well.
