Time Conscious Living
Atom Bergstrom, born Gosta Ingvar Bergstrom, Jr, is credited as the founder of Sun Sync and the leading expert on a Sun-Centric lifestyle. Atom’s journey towards health, nutrition, longevity, and meditation goes back to 1955, when he first started reading books by D.C. Jarvis, J.I. Rodale, Carlton Fredericks, Adelle Davis, Aldous Huxley, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Prabhavananda, and numerous others. His exposure to the above mentioned authors instigated a deep desire and passion to understand and unlock the secrets to optimal human wellness and longevity. Atom was inspired by the words of Thomas Jefferson: “School teaches all of the branches, but none of the roots.” He sought the answers to his questions, not in classrooms, but in books, relationships, and life experiences. His quest for true knowledge and wisdom began by studying in hundreds of libraries across the country and evolved by studying with teachers and masters including Swami Adano Ley, Sufi Adnan Sarhan, Rabbi Michael Shapiro, Taoist Master Yun Xiang Tseng, and Fitness Icon Gypsy Boots. His most significant teacher was Swami Adano Ley with whom he spent 14 years. During this time, he studied a variety of sciences extensively, including the sun centric lifestyle, and ultimately graduated from Adano Ley’s Texas Institute of Reflex Sciences. The knowledge and wisdom he gained studying under a highly evolved swami combined with his emphasis on scientific research & personal experience would soon become the heartbeat of Sun Sync Nutrition. For the past 40 years, Atom has dedicated his life to the continuous learning and teaching of Sun Sync Nutrition, Time Conscious Eating, Cosmo-Chemistry, Reflexology, Muscle Response Testing, Body Language Analysis, Iris Analysis, Lucid Dreaming, Meditation and many other sciences.

Yet these same jokers dare tell us with a straight face that they can’t make a simple solar ingot.

Thanks for such a great interview,…now, talking about ketogenic diets and sugar/glucose, according to Brian Clement, two medium size salads provide enough sugar for a 200 lbs man, is this right?, thank you!

It is also said a serving of breakfast cereal provides all of the “sodium” you need per day, seeing how it lists 300mg table salt. On the subject of stats, look at the USRDA for a sedentary adult-potassium 4800mg.

Much of the Japanese longevity attributed to fish is actually due to their very high sodium chloride diet.
Vibrant Gal and I don’t spare the salt. We use lots of iodide-free Diamond Crystal Pure and Natural Kosher Salt.
When sodium doesn’t balance potassium, the latter is a major contributor to cancer.
Cancer cells have a qualitative and persistent EXCESS OF POTASSIUM (as much as 60%, along with an equivalent EXCESS IN RED BLOOD CELLS and a deficiency in blood serum).
This excess potassium in red blood cells and its deficiency in blood serum is related to the fact that red blood cells can contain ample oxygen at the identical time tissue oxygen levels have dropped to zero. (Serum and tissue oxygen tension levels are measured as Po2, oxygen partial pressure.)
As for cereal, if Vibrant Gal and I did eat it, which we don’t, we’d eat it at midday, following Growth Patterns and Solar Cycles.

The sugar in two medium-sized salads will provide barely enough sugar for a 200-pound man for ABOUT AN HOUR.
Brian Clement and I live on two different planets. :-D

I know this is an older post, but I was going back through and listening to some interviews for a second time because I love the shows! Question about the ketogenic/low-carb diet. I’m confused because I see people have so much weight loss success and reverse Diabetes Type II/Insulin resistance with a low-carb diet. Does Atom think there is any benefit from this temporarily? Is this due to the body burning through stored PUFA’s and having a healthier fat profile? Lastly, would an eating-on-time low-carb diet be effective? Like nuts and avocado for breakfast, a salad with seeds and cheese at lunch, and fish and veggies for dinner? Thank you for all you do.

Keto’s benefits are at the expense of longevity. Keto centenarians and super-centenarians are very rare. But athletes and bodybuilders can have short-term benefits on keto … and it can mitigate certain diseases. The food combinations you mention aren’t ketogenic, so you’re good to go.
