|It is not true that
the cholesterol from ingested food, or the one already contained in the
blood, is accumulated in the walls of the arteries. And that has been conclusively
proven by experiments, in which cholesterol (marked with radioactive carbon)
given by a variety of routes was never found in the cells of the arteries
in humans. But it was shown, however, that a marked glucose, given alone
or even better with insulin, could be found in the arterial walls after
only one hour following its administration. But it was not glucose any more,
because the marker (radioactive carbon) was found in the molecules of the
There are many approaches to weight loss, new ones are
invented all the time but the number of obese people continually increases.
What then is the opinion of science regarding the effectiveness of these
methods? Every dramatic reduction of food quantity markedly accelerates
ageing, particularly of blood vessels.
15 years ago I visited Dr. Kwasniewski because I was overweight. I am
175 cm tall and my weight was 120 kg. When I started observing the Optimal
Diet my weight dropped 8 kg in the first month. After few months the
weight stabilised at 90 kg. I am still using the diet. I am 48 years
old. I feel well and I am healthy man. I am very thankful to Dr. Kwasniewski
for his help.

obese people treated with a diet containing 1200-1500 kcal and forced
to exercise, the cloudiness of serum (hyperlipidemia) increased even
Low-calorie diets are
ineffective in the permanent treatment of obesity.
Low-fat diets cause an increase in lipid production, depression and overall
The treatment of obesity with fasting is totally ineffective. The final
result always failure.
Fasting causes apathy, the lowering of the perception of morality, the
lowering of mental abilities, asocial and egoistical behaviour. The dropping
of the fast produces an improvement in mental numbness.
Based on experiments with isotopes, it was shown that fasting, diuretic
drugs or products derived from the thyroid gland cause loss of water
and lean body mass with minimal, if at all, loss of fat.
Scientific investigations proved that a fat-rich diet cannot cause obesity,
heart and vasculature diseases, but causes low blood pressure, low blood
cholesterol, zero incidence of atheroselerosis and obesity, very high
physical efficiency which reduces minimally with the progression of age.
The possibility of developing diabetes or a disease of the joints is
Optimal nutrition should always be implemented immediately, without
any adjustment period. Depending on the degree of obesity, and the type
of coexisting diseases caused by a common cause, the proportion between
protein and fat has to be initially readjusted to 1 gram of protein to
2-3 grams of fat, and 0.5 g of carbohydrate. Calories should not be counted
at any time, with one exception - they should be counted when buying
One should have no fears that during a rapid
reduction of body weight using the optimal diet the skin will become
old and wrinkled or floppy on the abdomen. To the contrary. The skin
typically becomes smooth and contracts "as required". In January
1996 during a get together with the past patients from Arkadia I (Dr
J. Kwasniewski) spoke to the man whose weight in 1987 was 155 kg and
who then was gravely ill. At that meeting he weighed in at 75 kg, was
slim, healthy, physically and mentally very active, had a fantastic skin
and continued to work, all that being ... 80 years old.
That animals may be fattened on a predominantly
carbohydrate diet demonstrates the ease of conversion of carbohydrate
into fat. A most significant reaction in this respect is the conversion
of pyruvate to acetyl COA, as acetyl COA is the starting material for
the synthesis of long chain fatty acids.
