The Zone is an eternal flame. When one is born, he or she is but a tiny
flame in a fireplace. With nurturing one’s flame becomes a fire filling
the fireplace. However, everyone has slightly different fireplaces
(individual biochemistries) and some of us burn hotter than others.
This can be likened to one’s genetic history. When the fire first
ignites, any fuel will burn.
There are several different
types of fuel that are required to make one‘s fireplace burn efficiently.

dies, leaving a nasty residue in the grate. Paper does not burn very
Kindling wood can be likened
to medium glycemic carbs. It burns quickly,
lasts longer than paper and burns hotter. Wood keeps the fire going,
but will not last a long time. Again, the fire becomes smaller quickly.
Small Dry Logs:
Small dry logs can be likened
to low glycemic carbs. They catch fire reasonably
quick and burn for a reasonable period of time. They are a suitable
fuel to provide long-term medium warmth.

Fat is like coal. It burns
hotter because of its double calories and it also burns slowly.
There are several types

and block the airflow.
fat burns clean. If enough is provided, it cleans out the dirty
ash buildup from the saturated fat or any wood that is used.
B-Well™ Omega-3 PGFO is a super fat. It burns really hot
and eliminates all the buildup from the inferior fuels.
Putting on too much fuel
at any time will damage the fireplace as will the fast burning fuels.
We need to keep the fire hot and steady with the right quantity and quality
of fuel, at the right time.
Over the years the residue of
ash builds up and the fire dims. The ash is like the stored fat we
carry. The fire has a lot of trouble burning it and it stops the
new fuel from burning efficiently. This leads to more
ash buildup. The rate of decline depends on the quality of the
fuel, just like in anti-aging.
If all fuel is paper and kindling,
the fireplace becomes clogged up very fast. Too much saturated fat
also adds to the problems. With the right blend of coal, a little kindling
and small logs, the fire will burn hot and long without residue, thus enabling
one‘s eternal flame.
Exercise is like stirring the
fire (ie poking with poker). If done regularly, the fire will burn
hot and clean. However, if one stirs the fire too much, the fire
will burn out. The fire also needs just the right amount of fuel
before and after poking. However, there must be balance. If
using too much fuel, more residue will accumulate which will shorten the
life of the fire.
