How to Use Feasting to Your Metabolic Advantage

2020-11-25T01:56:22+00:00Health|

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the excitement and results of fasting that we forget about the need to feast and enjoy the nourishing benefits of food! So today I’m here to remind you that feasting is just as important to the fasting lifestyle as your fast days, and that food can be healing to your health, just like fasting can.  Feasting Tip #1: Use Feast-famine cycling The first thing that you must realize is that your body was designed for feast-famine cycles. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors were expert fasters, indulging in feasts when food was plentiful, then facing long periods of fasting in between. With this in mind, it makes sense that our bodies  are designed and adapted

Autophagy Dysfunction And Immunity

2020-11-22T17:01:33+00:00Health|

Earlier this week I discussed a new meta analysis titled Intermittent fasting, a possible priming tool for host defense against SARS-CoV-2 infection, has made some impressive findings about the benefits of fasting, specifically autophagy fasting, in promoting health and preventing COVID-19.   As I dove deeper into the science, I found more and more research around “autophagy dysfunction” and what that means for your immunity and lung health. Given the state of the world right now, our health and immune strength is incredibly important, and autophagy plays a vital role in clearing out dysfunctional parts of cells, so the cell can be more receptive to making energy and participating in a healthy immune response.  First, a refresher on autophagy: Autophagy

Autophagy and Your Immune System

2020-11-20T22:00:48+00:00Health|

Hot off the press! A recent meta analysis published in October 2020 titled Intermittent fasting, a possible priming tool for host defense against SARS-CoV-2 infection, has made some impressive findings about the benefits of fasting, specifically autophagy fasting, in promoting health and preventing illness.   Directly from the study:  “[...]strengthening immunity along with maintaining a healthy living is the best way to survive this disease. As a healthy practice, calorie restriction in the form of intermittent fasting (IF) in several clinical settings has been reported to promote several health benefits, including priming of the immune response. This dietary restriction also activates autophagy, a cell surveillance system that boosts up immunity. With these prevailing significance in priming host defense, IF could

Ketosis versus Autophagy: What’s the difference?

2020-11-16T21:16:11+00:00Health|

This is a great question I got in one of my live Q&A sessions that I thought was worth further exploration. What is the difference between ketosis and autophagy? First, let’s start with ketosis. Ketosis is a state of healing that signals your body is burning fat for energy.  This is why most people come to fasting and the ketogenic diet, for weight loss. But there are so many other amazing health benefits to ketones. Ketones travel up to the brain and enhance neurological healing. Ketones increase GABA and calm the brain. Ketones also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.  How do you get into ketosis? Well, the answer to this question will vary for each person, depending
