Partial Fasting | Safety Defined


January 21, 2015 - 10:27am — ShannonPetteruti

The European food safety authority  (EFSA) has developed recommendations for very low calorie meal replacement diets. The recommendations support higher levels of protein and lower levels of carbohydrates than had been previously advised.  The report also emphasizes the importance of high-quality in the proteins selected.  The recommendations reinforce macronutrient teaching used in the I.M.120 Method.

The recommendations from EFSA call for 75 g of protein and 30 g of carbs on a daily basis when eating 600 cal per day.

A Tribute To My Father, Dr. Joseph Petteruti: 1930 - 2015


January 7, 2015 - 6:33am — ShannonPetteruti

I remember a day as a boy going on a house call with my father. He went to visit a woman who was dying of cancer. I remember the concern, and then the relief in the husband's face as my father gently examined the patient and offered his support.

I remember my dad walking the sidelines of my football games in high school. Team doctor, number one fan, cheering victories and suffering losses together.

I remember my father later in his career studying to learn new skills, always keeping up with the latest medicine.
