restricting for chess

I recently received correspondence from Paul McGlothin, Vice President of Research for the Board of the Calorie Restriction Society. He knows I’m a competitive chessplayer and fellow practitioner and thought the following might interest me and others in the chess community.

Paul and his wife Meredith are inveterate self-experimenters and, via extremely diligent testing and record-keeping, they have devised an eating strategy (more accurately, a lifestyle) that maintains optimal (i.e., low) glucose levels for mental clarity and energy. They accomplish this using a combination of calorie restriction, meal and exercise timing, and a ketogenic diet. If high fat plans, like Atkins, just came to mind, you are not alone. What I find intriguing is they purport it can actually be done with consumption of complex carbohydrates!

Here, in his own words, is the concept and goals from the perspective of those desiring improved cognition, such as chessplayers. He has also documented therein several references supporting his position.

This second document is the press release for the workshop they are facilitating in NY from August 10-12 and a description of the research it helps benefit.

Finally, I should mention this lovely couple has a new book due out in October entitled The CR Way: Using the Secrets of Calorie Restriction for a Longer, Healthier Life. You can bet I’ve pre-ordered mine. :)

If anyone ends up attending the hands-on workshop, please let them know you heard about it here, and more importantly, report back. Seeing as I’m not much for travel (just ask my family in NC), I’ll have to live it vicariously.
