Keto 101 – Intermittent Fasting


So I wanted to touch on what Intermittent Fasting is doing why it’s good for you
and what’s actually happening Has anyone heard of autophagy this is one of the primary outcomes for intermittent fasting it’s kind of like cleaning house
we need to get rid of damaged cells need to fix them need to recycle them we need
to leave room for new healthy cells and that’s essentially what autophagy is
doing and that’s what we need for normal physiological function so this this is a normal process that happens and it helps to maintain that balance in
the body. intermittent fasting is promoting that cleaning process in the
body there’s some really interesting research looking at it’s written fasting
and aging. The aging process is essentially an accumulation of damaged
cells So intermittent fasting can increase the clearance and cell turnover and the
longer and the greater the intermittent fast, the greater your body’s ability is to
produce that cell turnover and the greater the rate of autophagy. telomeres are essentially these little pieces that are on the end of our genes. They’re
essentially associated with how we age we want long telomeres. Short telomeres they correspond to lifespan the longer your life span. the Shorter your telomeres, the shorter your lifespan. So, we could be impacting our lifespan and our telomeres from intermittent fasting and we’re improving
autophagy getting rid of some of those damaged cells we’re increasing your
metabolic rate or not tanking your metabolism contrary to what people might think from the appetite and blood sugar we’re reducing oxidative stress increacing learning and memory function we’re seeing an increase in that cell turnover and increasing
fat-burning we also see an increase in growth growth hormone, fasting, intermittent fasting is something I have my male patients do to increase testosterone. All of my patients, I ask them to do a
16-hour intermittent fast from dinners your first meal the next
day 16 hours once week I ask them to extend it to 20
hours once a week I ask them to extend it to 24 hours and once a month I’m
asking them to do a more extended intermittent fast like the reboot so again the longer the fast, the greater the rate of autophagy So that also comes into how long should we be intermittent fasting for? That sweet spot is between 18 to 24 hours so when you hit that 16 hour mark you’re starting to come into all of those benefits of intermittent fasting. you see the greatest benefit kind of between the 48 to 60 hour mark. So right inline with the 60 hour reboot. i want to see all of those benefits and so that’s what I’m asking most people to do some people can’t do that right away it’s 24 hours
seems way too long for you that’s fine I’ll often start with a 12 hour
instrument fast let me go from there
