fasting benefits part 1


Here are my notes:

  • fasting increases autophagy slows down aging and keeps you healthy
  • your internal hormone cycles are reset, this includes BDNF our body is a system of clocks, having time restricted feeding lets your internal clock know when food is coming in
  • IF increases growth hormone which, when combined with lifting, increases muscle mass
  • hunger hormones are improved, reducing hunger and diminishes stress eating and give you better craving control
  • reduces cholesterol buildup in our arteries because fasting gives the body time to repair damaged cells before cholesterol comes in to plug up the damage
  • BDNF is improved, likely because we’re programmed to activate BDNF when we’re hungry and need to survive
  • fasting creates more brown fat, brown fat is good because it converts energy to heat and just burns calories and keeps us at a lower body set point
  • fasting creates more stem cells by recycling ineffective cells and it creates more stem cells that are more efficient



Let’s figure it out!  The Fasting Motivation podcast is not medical advice.
