Q: What is the realization which is beyond understanding?
M: Imagine a dense forest full of tigers and you in a strong steel cage. Knowing that you are well protected by the cage, you watch the tigers fearlessly. Next you find the tigers in the cage and yourself roaming about in the jungle. Last – the cage disappears and you ride the tigers!
The Amen Protocol is the result of a decade of rigorous research and systematic self-experimentation. The Protocol has a pentavalent nature, consisting of 5 principal parts: (I) a fasting component, (II) a dietetic component, (III) an exercise component, (IV) an informational/educational component, and (V) a psycho-ascetic/meditative component. Essential elements of the Regimen include the following:
A daily, diurnal fast, 23 hours in duration, wherein no calorie-containing foods or beverages are partaken [Incipient Amen Adherents may initially fast for 21 hours/day]
An aerobic exercise session executed in the morning; a resistance exercise session executed in the evening
A single nocturnal meal not exceeding an hour in duration [for Inveterate Amenites]
Intellectual assimilation of the extensive information and practical principles that undergird the Regimen
Intervals of Amenistic Meditation interspersed at opportune junctures throughout the day
Defining features of the Amen Diet are the following:
Calorically restricted, with a mean caloric content of 1250 [range 1000-1500 kilocalories]
Thoroughly vegetal, devoid of meat
Low in glycotoxins (i.e. advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) produced by the chemical combination of simple sugars and proteins both inside and outside the body)
Antioxidant rich, adequate in essential micronutrients (i.e. minerals and vitamins)
Inclusive of select supplemental or nutraceutical agents known to exert inhibitory effects on the aging process and/or age-related diseases
