More info on Fasting

Fasting is the willful refrainment from eating and drinking. In a physiological context, fasting may refer to the metabolic status of a person who has not eaten overnight, or to the metabolic state achieved after complete digestion and absorption of a meal. Several metabolic adjustments occur during fasting. Some diagnostic tests are used to determine a fasting state. For example, a person is assumed to be fasting once 8–12 hours have elapsed since the last meal. Metabolic changes of the fasting state begin after absorption of a meal (typically 3–5 hours after eating).
A diagnostic fast refers to prolonged fasting from 1 to 100 hours (depending on age) conducted under observation to facilitate the investigation of a health complication, usually hypoglycemia. Many people may also fast as part of a medical procedure or a check-up, such as preceding a colonoscopy or surgery. Fasting may also be part of a religious ritual, often associated with specifically scheduled fast days, as determined by the religion.

Intermittent fasting has recently become a health trend. It’s claimed to cause weight loss, improve metabolic health, and perhaps even extend lifespan. Several methods of this eating pattern exist. Every method can be effective, but figuring out which one works best depends on the individual.

There’s a ton of incredibly promising intermittent fasting (IF) research done on fat rats. They lose weight, their blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugars improve… but they’re rats. Studies in humans, almost across the board, have shown that IF is safe and incredibly effective, but really no more effective than any other diet. In addition, many people find it difficult to fast.

But a growing body of research suggests that the timing of the fast is key, and can make IF a more realistic, sustainable, and effective approach for weight loss, as well as for diabetes prevention.

Some people fast as a way to lose weight. Others fast to try to detox their bodies, or for religious reasons. If you’re fasting to lose weight, you may want to reconsider. The weight loss may not last after you finish fasting. If your goal is to detox your body, you should know that your body naturally detoxes itself. Fasting diets aren’t all the same. Some allow only liquids like water, juice, or tea. Others cut calories drastically, but don’t completely ban food. And on some plans, you fast every other day.

Fasting is so insanely powerful for you health (for all the reasons they share here!) and for those in the comments who are struggling/just starting, I promise: IT GETS EASIER! So much easier with practice. Don't give up! You and your health are worth it! ????

  4. That’s funny because I don’t see any vegan patients, 100% are carnivores

  5. I'm at 60hrs rn. I might extend it to 72 and then 12hr extensions. Maybe I'll keep going. I'm actually not at all hungry. I think I'm just bored and want to eat or cook something because of it.

    Feel great though.

  6. Dr. Fung is not an osteopath, he is a nephrologist, and the foremost authority on intermittent fasting for health.

  7. Did you know that the number one energy waster is talking?
    I challenge anyone who reads this! to not make a sound for 24 hours!

  8. Thank you for this great episode, Tom! So I rarely see fasting experts who are women. Why do you think that is? Are there any key differences in fasting for women vs men? I've heard yes and no. Would love to see an episode on this if you think it could help others too 🙂

  9. , , So cool how i was able to beat the genital herpes with the help of Doctor Salami on his YouTube channel he's really worth the hype

  10. I make it until day 5 a few times then the detox pain is so bad I break my fast and usually not with the healthiest foods. Got to find a way to detox prior to my fast. The fasting part is easy the pain isn't. Last time the pain was from middle of back down to above my knees.
