What time to eat a BAB?

    I know that timing is key in the leptin reset, What time should a BAB be eaten by?
    It takes me a long time to eat it, sometimes an hour.
    (Eastern standard time) THanks! :)

    You want to reset your Rolex. When you get outside and get the lite in your eyes and on your body is the important bit.
    However long it takes.....

    As soon as your rise, with the Leptin Rx built in quantum processes, it should yoke almost immediately with the sunrise where ever you are. Sunlight normally lowers cortisol levels on the skin and in the eye and we want to do this to help control the distances between respiratory proteins for tunneling of electrons and protons. AM sunlight is a powerful stimulus to control these distances.
    1. With respect to food and the BAB: normal biochemistry says protein is broken down into glucose (not exactly true) What is the problem with using carbs when you fail to connect with the sunlights rays in the AM?

    2. Protein is broken down into electrons........so are carbs but where they enter the cytochrome proteins and how far the distance between your respiratory proteins are from each other determines the results you get. It has nothing to do with the food fundamentally........it has everything to do with distance traveled on the the inner mitochondrial membrane on the cristae where these proteins are. Carbs and proteins enter at cytochrome 1 and fats enter at cytochrome 2. 1 Angstrom increase decreases tunneling speeds of electrons by a factor of ten. Things entering at cytochrome 1 are exceptionally slow to get to oxygen.......Cytochrome 2 slightly quicker.........the shuttle from one to three also slows.........as slowing increases so does % heteroplasmy........as % heteroplasmy rises disease morph from one thing to the next without any nuclear changes in DNA. ​

    Thank you Caroline, Ok I shall go outside before breakfast then. I am just like a slug in the morning, so I think I'll prepare breakfast the day before (like hard boiled eggs & fish) to save time in the AM.
    Sunlight before food.
    Dr.Kruse should make a t-shirt that says that, lol. I know I could definitely use a constant reminder (at least right now)

    Dr. Kruse, Thank you for your response
    I believe the more I read this, the more it will sink in. I plan to do that until it is clear.

    I'm thinking we want slow electron transport. Slow and steady wins the race.
    1.( Your question) Carbs will be a problem without sunlight because...
    Sunlight increases the distance.? Carbs need the distance

    Like nowadays when I eat a BAB of fat & protein without any carbs and I get lightheaded and see those "falling speckles" (that is what I call them) in my eyes.

    I adapted very well once before to ketosis. I did leptin rx, CT and barely exercised, healthy weight, less anxiety, I felt good. It was summer time and I was benefiting from sun without realizing its importance.

    Is a telomere the distance between the respiratory proteins?

    We actually want fast electron chain transport, sun decreases the distances between the Cytochromes and increases NAD (amount/redox/energy) which is where carbs enter. Without sun, carbs are slower and lead to less energy and more fat.

    Ahh ok, just when I thought I was getting it.:(

    seanb4, I am trying to study the different complexes (I to V), and not being able to fully appreciate what I am reading. Do you have some links to share? thank you in advance.

    Hmmm, no real links but the book Power, Sex, Suicide by nick lane is where I got most my knowledge. I would recommend it if you have the time. Alternatively if you google "how do mitochondria work" or something you will also probably find some good simple explanations...
  11. Jumping in here because I had a similar question. I'm finding that I am waking up much earlier than i used to. Sometimes before 5 am up here in NH. The sky is starting to lighten at that time and the birds are going wild outside. Problem I run into is I feel really drained at that time and often hit the bathroom and climb back into bed for a bit. I think I know the answer to this but I am wondering at what point is your body shifting hormone production. Is at the time of waking or does physical movement influence this as well? I'm partly wondering because there are times when waking up in the middle of the night or really early to use the bathroom happens. Is it game over at that point? Should we just stay awake and move on with our days even if the sun is not fully up?

    30 min from the sunrise is optimized

    I currently take an Imuran(100mg/d) & prednisone (30 mg /d, was down to 5 mg I point a yr ago ). Sounds like I should try to get off the steroids, I have tried in the past but I seem to need it to function. What about the imuran?

    Please pardon me for breaking the six year slumber of this thread. I used to experience similar patterns. My speculation here may not be relevant, however in the event that it does turn out to be of any utility: I recall having found the concept of temperature minimum to be a useful entry point when it came to figuring out how to tackle the situation.
