Title: Culmination of Interdisciplinary Protocols for Obesity Reduction
Biography: F Buck Willis
Successful obesity reduction must start with identifying and eliminating the causes of this disease. The most common causes which affect an estimated 75% of the US population are hidden food allergies. While these sub-acute allergens do not cause itching, hives, or angioedema, they do cause inflammatory reactions which yield metabolic depression. Other causes include high fructose corn syrup and preservatives like TBHQ (Tertiary Butyl Hydroquinone) which require days to detoxify the volatile, phenol compound. Food allergen elimination itself with ALCAT testing showed significant changes in weight, body fat percentage reduction and BMI reduction (p<0.0001). In that comparison study the second category subjects combined treatment of food allergen elimination with PAN-5 protocols. The combined treatment showed a significantly difference (p<0.0001) with 75% greater weight loss (-12.4 Kg), 80% greater fat percentage reduction (-5.4%) and 70% greater BMI reduction (3.6). The PAN-5 acronym is from the combination of these protocols: Portion-size meal control (consuming <2 cups), five times per day; Aerobic-surge exercise (HR elevated ≥75% max for 2 minutes), performed 5/day; and Natural foods eaten five times per day (within the <2 cup portion size). There is significant evidence that hidden food allergies may be one meaningful cause of the growing obesity epidemic and eliminating food allergens will reduce daily weight gains and empower continual weight loss. The combination of the evidence-based protocols in PAN-5 have shown even greater changes (improvement) by eating smaller portion sizes more frequently, participating in a brief, high intensity aerobic-surge exercise for two minutes (5 days) and eating natural foods five times a day (within the portion size).
