In 2010, this website began when I realized that the practice of concentrating one’s carbohydrate intake into one meal daily — a practice first proposed by the Heller’s in their popular “Carbohydrate Addicts Diet” – might not only represent a practical strategy for lifelong weight control, but also, by keeping insulin levels relatively low for about 20 consecutive hours in each 24 hour span, provide some of the same health protection and longevity benefits achieved with calorie restriction and alternate-day fasting in animal studies.
In large part by practicing this “Carbohydrate Concentration” strategy, and by complementing it with exercise training, I am now 30 pounds lighter than I used to be, and I reversed my metabolic syndrome. More
Catalytic Longevity’s Research Director Mark F. McCarty is a biomedical theoretician and applied nutritionist who over the years has published over 240 papers in the Medline-cited biomedical literature, primarily in the journal Medical Hypotheses. Rather than conducting laboratory or clinical research, his strategy is to “mine Medline” — analyzing and synthesizing the world’s credible peer-reviewed literature, in an effort to generate practical conclusions pertinent to preserving or restoring health.

There is now strong reason to suspect that a natural protein, made in our bodies to boost the microbe- and cancer-fighting abilities of immune cells known as macrophages, can help to cure cancer when injected repeatedly by cancer patients who have minimal disease following successful surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy. This agent – macrophage activating factor (abbreviated as “GcMAF”) also may have the potential to slow cancer spread in patients with more advanced cancers, although this is more speculative. And the good news is that, although GcMAF hasn’t yet received drug approval (and may be unlikely to, owing to the fact that it is a natural compound), it currently can be ordered via email from several chemical companies, who ship it in a form suitable for intramuscular administration (much like insulin).

We would like to introduce you to a novel way of eating. We call it the Carbohydrate Concentration (CC) Diet. A high percentage of the millions of people who tried this kind of diet under the title “carbohydrate addict’s diet” found it effective for losing weight. In addition to weight loss, the CC Diet can lead to significant health and healthy-aging benefits for you. A discussion of these benefits for healthy aging as well as how the CC Diet can lead to many of health benefits seen with caloric restriction and intermittent fasting can be found in Jeremy J. Stone’s paper, “Concentrate Your Carbs!”
Caloric restriction and intermittent fasting are the only proven methods for extending lifespan and preserving youthfulness in animal experiments to date. New research has demonstrated that one of the key reasons that caloric restriction works is because of the low levels of insulin in the blood stream that result. By following the Carbohydrate Concentration Diet you will experience low insulin levels for 20 hours each day. You won’t have to give up any type of food that you enjoy eating and will be able to eat normal amounts of food, yet you will still be able to experience many of the benefits of full-blown caloric restriction by having low insulin levels over 80% of the time. These low insulin levels will tend to moderate your appetite and hence lead to lower calorie consumption. The Carbohydrate Concentration Diet is very simple to follow and has only one simple rule: Eat virtually all of your carbohydrates for each day in the course of one meal. More
