  1. [Recipe] No-Oat Meal (5 min prep): Completely vegan, this is a great substitute for oatmeal or cereal. It’s a little creamier and has a nutty texture. This may not be to everyone’s taste, but definitely worth a try, since it only takes five minutes to make.

  2. [Science] Live Longer with Caloric Restriction? (14 min): Based on several studies, longevity is more closely related with what you eat, rather than how much. However, how healthy you are is strongly correlated to caloric restriction. So basically, eat nutrient dense foods and don’t eat too much.

  4. [Science] Nutritional Ketosis to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes (3 min): A one year-long study showed that Type 2 diabetics were able to reverse their diabetes using nutritional ketosis and a mobile app through which the patients could keep in close contact with the clinic.
