In my opinion, Nephrologist Jason Fung is the most important brain to follow in the fasting space.

the linked 37 minute podcast is from the JJ Virgin Lifestyle podcast.  here are my notes:

  • Fung has a free 12 week introductory program
  • He’s helped thousands of people
  • Dr Fung starts with his story.
  • instead of treating diabetes, its better to prevent it
  • losing weight was one way
  • the calories in calories out model isn’t helpful
  • 100 calories of cookies is NOT the same as 100 calories of broccoli
  • in the 50s we ate 3 times a day, now its 6 times a day
  • we’ve been fasting as a species for 1000s of years.
  • every major religion has periods of fasting
  • our bodies are smart, when we fast, we preserve lean mass and burn body fat
  • basal metabolic rate ramps up while fasting, think about a hungry wolf
  • fasting increases energy because you’re opening up access to body fat
  • after a long term people don’t get as hungry as people who do calorie cutting
  • what’s an appetizer? it’s a small amount of food to get you hungry
  • eating a little bit of food doesn’t decrease hunger it increases hunger
  • we are telling people to eat an appetizer 6 times a day, and just when you get hungry, we stop
  • then we wonder why we’re hungry

 

`12 hour fasting should be the minimum

16 hours is the next level

then maybe 24 hours of fasting, or OMAD, one meal a day, maybe 3 days a week

some people do 5 and 7 day fasts – the hunger dissipates at day 3

 

Lets figure it out!  The Fasting Motivation podcast is not medical advice.
