The following fermented foods are mentioned in the book: If this were a no-sugar diet then maybe it should be avoided, but the author says that up to 7 added teaspoons a day of sugar are okay, so it would probably fit within the guidelines if taken in moderation.

    The church calls it the Word of Wisdom and was officially written in February 27, 30 years before the founding of the Seventh Day Adventist church — the blue zone religion in Loma Linda, California is Seventh Day Adventist. It is found in Doctrine and Covenants section 89 of their scriptures.

    It says to eat fruits, vegetables, herbs, and grains but to eat meat sparingly to eat meat only in times of famine and excess hunger. And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not say them.

    The Blue Zones PDF Summary - Dan Buettner | 12min Blog

    People are always thinking that complicated medicine and expensive modern technological therapies are required to live long and healthy. The gift of a long and healthy life is already in the hands of each and every one of us. It is up to each of us to choose the lifestyle of health, and sadly most of us are choosing not to live that lifestyle. To each his own.

    So lets get into a bit more detail. First off, what do we mean by a healthy diet?

    A healthy diet, according to mountains of literature, and now supported by blue zone investigation, is one that is loaded with vegetables, fruits, fish, and nuts and low on meat, sugar, fat, and the toxic processed foods of modern civilization.

    Buettner actually goes into even more detail, highlighting red wine, goats milk, local teas, and several other aspects of blue zone diets that seem to be beneficial. Sure you can get all precise about it if you want, but my take is that the exact details, such as red wine, are not so important.

    What is most important is the high level theme of generally eating good stuff fruits, veggies, fish and cutting out the bad stuff meat, fat, sugar.

    Your body is a living biological machine. Is it surprising our bodies suffer when we stuff them with inflammatory, chemically destructive diets high in saturated fat and sugar? People in blue zones eat healthy diets, and not surprisingly they suffer from these major diseases either less frequently or not at all.

    That means they live longer and healthier. Work That Body…or Watch it Wither A daily routine of regular exercise is another theme that is common across all blue zones. But that is just it!

    The exercise comes for free, already built into their daily lives naturally. Common across all of the blue zones is that the people climb mountains, walk through the hills, work the land, and generally use their bodies in a constant grind as they perform their daily activities.

    Often the exercise is slow and relaxed, but ongoing throughout the day. These people are using their muscles, burning calories, and circulating their blood.

    The Blue Zones Diet Secrets from People Who Live Up to 100.

    Their bodies are tough and healthy, conditioned by the daily routine to be fit and alert. Ready to fight disease. Quick to break down toxins and waste. Especially in America, when we see those rare individuals that actually make it to 90 years old, they are often frail and weak, hunched over in wheelchairs and propped up with countless medications.

    Not so with the individuals in blue zones. The individuals who are reaching 90 or even years old in the blue zones are often able to live active, normal, medication free, mostly healthy lives all the way to the very end.

    Its an amazing revelation, and it gives hope to all of us that we too can live healthy in addition to living long. But to live long and healthy you have to earn it! You have to work your body everyday, or nearly so. Sit around all day and let your body turn into a low efficiency, low energy, low impact carcass and you can kiss your health goodbye. Your bones will weaken, your muscles will wither, toxins and waste will accumulate.

    Use it or lose it.

    A life of low stress and filled with happiness.
