Eats One meal per day of 1200 kcal and lifts 305kg. Is intermittent fasting the key ? Can eating less, extend your life-span and provide you solid muscle gains while being a strongly calorie-restricted diet?

Okay, this here might sound completely unusual and contradictory to what you know: May I introduce to you, Dr. Nūn S. Amen-Ra. His current age is 42 in September 2016. He holds a World Record in Dead Lifting 672 lb (305 kg) at a 176.6 Bodyweight, in the 82.5 kg Open Category.

Now that might not be unsual, but the fact that he consumes only about 1000 to 1500 kilocalories per day and eats within the time window of an hour or less. That means for 23+ hours per day Dr. Amen-Ra is intermittent fasting or on a so-called cyclic fast. Beyond that he has quiet an ascetic regimen. Why all this? Well he got totally fascinated by the ideas related to slowing down the aging-process and is living by his own regimen since 15 years.

Let’s get into the corner stones of the Amen Diet and you will see how unsual this is. Now before we do that, all the listed activities or rules are all purposed for one thing only: The creation of the right stimulus to release specific hormones and activate metabolic processes that are in any shape or form beneficial to anti-aging or auto-phagy (protein breakdown), glycation-inhibition (the reaction of carbohydrates with fats or proteins without enzymes), reduction of inflammation and lipid-oxidation (burning fat)

  • Intermittent fasting for 23 hours – eating is allowed within a time-slot of one hour and only vegan food choices
  • Calorie restriction to 1000 – 1500, averaged 1250 kcal per day.
  • One aerobic workout in the morning, ideally another one around noon time.
  • One heavy resistance training in the evening aroung 6pm. Evening is the best time.
  • Break the fast after the workout with a mixture of multiple neutraceuticals –
    • A plant-based mulit-mineral & multi-vitamin powder,
    • 12 different isolated amino-acids
    • Resveratrol (an antiodative polyphenol from grapes)
    • Niacin-bound chromium
    • Glucosamin
    • Curcumin (from Turmeric)
    • The Polyphenols found in Green Tea, Blueberries and Pomegranates
  • The main meal mainly consists of
    • 3 Types of Beans (Canollini Beans, Red Kidney Beans or  [phaseolus vulgaris]) & Rice
    • Roots or Tubers (like sweet potato)
    • Grains, Nuts & Seeds
    • All foods are low in water-content and have a high calorie density for maximum satiation
  • The Minor meal aka a dessert
    • Nuts, Dried fruits are preferred over fresh ones due to their higher calorie-density.
    • Roasted Peanut Butter (plain peanuts with a little salt – nothing else) and Royal Jelly sandwiches (roasted peanuts have a reduced amount of aflatoxins)
  • Teas and herbal infusions like Green tea, black tea, Olong Tea, Roiboos Tea, Honey Bush, Rubarb and Hibiscus Tea. Just sweetened with stevia.

All is combined while intermittent fasting just fires of the synergetic benefits, among those reduced sleep-time and faster recuperation from exertion. Not surprisingly, the body increases its overall effiency in handling resources. It’s definitely worth a try and the results speak for themselves. Here take a look how easily Dr. Nūn S. Amen-Ra lifts the 305kg, a true inspiration !
