This podcast topic is a big interest for me personally as I’ve been looking into the research on intermittent fasting (and caloric restriction in general) for longevity and health; but we also talk alot about body composition and fat loss here too, so if intermittent or fasting in general is of interest to you, you’ll really enjoy this episode.
Here are some of the things we talked about:
· How fasting is a ‘good’ stressor that helps the cells in our body
· The difference between fasting and starvation
· Fat loss and fasting – metabolic and hormonal benefits
· If coffee or supplements okay to have during a fasting period
· How to make yourself a fat burning machine
· Autophagy for health span
· Diets and foods in the blue zones
· How to use a fasting mimicking diet if you struggle with traditional fasting
