In this video, we’re going to talk about what happens on the inside of your body when you’re fasting.

There are a lot of beneficial effects of fasting on the body. Over a long period of time, the human body has developed and adapted to starvation. However, our bodies have not adapted to frequent eating.

What happens when we fast?

Growth hormone is involved with:

  • Anti-aging
  • Fat burning
  • Healing joints
  • Protein synthesis

Autophagy is involved with:

  • Recycling old and damaged proteins as well as microbes
  • Decreased amyloid plaquing

  • Increased antioxidant reserve

Effects of fasting after 72 hours — Do periodically

How to get these incredible effects of fasting:

  • Do intermittent fasting on a regular basis
  • A good average pattern of intermittent fasting is doing 18 hours of fasting with a 6 hour eating window
  • Do periodic prolonged fasting to achieve additional fasting benefits
  • Take minerals during fasting (water along with nutrients)
  • Exercise in the mornings
  • You may have increased LDL (This may not be something to worry about)
