The Hunter-Farmer Diet Solution

The Hunter-Farmer Diet Solution
Friday, August 31
12 p.m. (PT)/2 p.m. (Central)/3 p.m. (ET)
A Live & Online Broadcast

For Beyond 50's "Natural Healing" talks, listen to an interview with Dr. Mark Laponis. He'll suggest that you determine your dietary type. Do you have the metabolism of a Hunter or Farmer? Hunters are naturally more resistant to the effects of food shortages, as they're better able to maintain a steady blood-sugar level, or to use belly fat for immediate energy. Farmers are more sensitive to food shortages, as they become hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) when they've gone just a few hours without food. The most significant difference between Hunters and Farmers is that they have varying sensitivity to the hormone insulin.

Sri Tathata: The Path of Dharma
For Beyond 50's "Spirituality" talks, listen to an interview with Sri Tathata. At his birth, Sri Tathata showed the signs of a Divine being. During His early years, he left home and settled in solitude undertaking deep Tapas (asceticisms) for many years, as directed by the Divine Will. His consciousness was most of the time totally absorbed in the Cosmic Consciousness. In a tremendous experience at the height of His asceticisms, he was shown both the full Glories of the Universe and the depth of the world's sufferings. When He later came out from solitude, He had become a perfect Instrument of the Divine Will and was ready for his mission: to lead the world on the path of Dharma: the enlightened way of living, at both individual and collective levels.
