    6 Intermittent Fasting Protocols for Fat Loss, Mood, Energy, and Improving Your Overall Health

    enSeptember 18, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting and How to Implement It CorrectlyIntermittent fasting can help with weight loss, increased focus, decreased anxiety and depression, and potentially lead to a longer lifespan. Learn how to implement it correctly for optimal results.

      Intermittent fasting can have numerous benefits for your overall health and well-being. According to Dr. Mindy Pelz, a leading expert in this field, the research shows that intermittent fasting can help with weight loss, increased focus, decreased anxiety and depression, and even potentially lead to a longer lifespan. The New England Medical Journal recommends intermittent fasting as a frontline intervention for treating various health issues like depression, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and dementia. To fully understand the benefits and how to implement intermittent fasting correctly, Dr. Mindy will be discussing the science behind it and providing a step-by-step guide in two parts, focusing on both general protocols and specific protocols for women. By learning about your body's energy systems and utilizing the right fasting protocols, you can take control of your health and see significant results.

    • The Healing Power of FastingFasting is a simple and affordable way to improve overall health by triggering positive responses in the body, promoting fat burning, reducing hunger, improving sleep, alleviating chronic pain, and slowing down aging.

      Fasting is a powerful tool for improving overall health. By avoiding food for a certain period of time, our bodies enter a healing state where blood sugar decreases and triggers numerous positive responses. Fasting promotes fat burning, supercharges the brain to reduce hunger, improves sleep, alleviates chronic pain, and slows down aging. What makes fasting truly remarkable is its accessibility and affordability, making it a health tool that can benefit everyone, from busy executives to those living paycheck to paycheck. With only 12% of Americans considered metabolically fit, fasting provides a quick and effective way to enter a healing state and improve overall metabolic health.

    • Reclaiming Our Body's Natural Energy SwitchBy reintroducing fasting and intentional periods of deprivation, we can tap into our body's innate wisdom to burn fat and increase energy levels.

      Our bodies have the natural ability to switch between gaining energy from food and gaining energy from burning stored fat. This is a simple concept that has been forgotten or overlooked in our modern society of convenience and excess. In the past, when food was not readily available, our bodies adapted by developing mechanisms to burn fat for energy, increasing focus, energy, and overall health. However, with easy access to food at all times, we have neglected this alternate energy source. By reintroducing fasting and intentional periods of deprivation, we can tap into our body's innate wisdom and trigger a multitude of health benefits, including fat burning and increased energy.

    • The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting for Hormonal Changes in WomenIntermittent fasting can help women during hormonal changes by combating symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, and belly fat accumulation, while also utilizing the body's natural healing mechanisms and promoting weight regulation.

      Intermittent fasting can have significant benefits for women, especially during hormonal changes such as perimenopause. Dr. Mindy Pelz shares her personal experience and highlights how fasting helped her combat symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, and belly fat accumulation. By understanding the metabolic cycles in our bodies and training them to stay in a fasted state, we can tap into the natural healing mechanisms and utilize the second fuel source called ketones. This not only fuels our brain but also helps burn fat and regulate weight. The beauty of fasting is that it is free, accessible, and our bodies are naturally designed for it. By starting the discussion around fasting and its potential for hormonal challenges, we can empower women to take control of their health and well-being.

    • The Healing Power of Fasting: A Natural Method for Health and WellnessFasting is not just a trend, but a way to give our bodies time to heal and repair. Numerous studies have shown the benefits of intermittent fasting for various health conditions.

      Fasting has been used for healing purposes for centuries and has a rich history rooted in various spiritual practices like Ramadan. The founder of modern medicine, Hippocrates, even recognized the healing power of fasting. However, our modern food addicted culture has led us astray from this natural healing method. It's important to note that fasting is not a trendy diet but a way to give our bodies time to heal and repair. Numerous studies, including one published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, have shown the benefits of intermittent fasting for conditions like obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative brain conditions, and even cancer. Taking a break from eating and allowing our bodies to enter a fasting state can have profound effects on our health.

    • Fasting Protocol: Shifting Focus from What You Eat to When You EatBy implementing a 12-hour eating window, weight loss is possible without changing food choices. Fasting allows the body to heal and decrease cravings, leading to natural improvements in food decisions.

      A fasting protocol focuses on when you eat, rather than what you eat. This was exemplified by a man who was over 300 pounds and struggled with food addiction. Instead of asking him to give up his sodas, the first step was to compress his food into a 12-hour eating window. By doing this, he lost close to 30 pounds in just one month, without changing what he ate. The reason behind this weight loss is that by leaving longer periods for fasting, the body has a chance to switch into a healing state and repair the damage caused by unhealthy eating habits. As a result, cravings diminish, and food choices naturally start to change for the better.

    • Maximizing Health Benefits Through Intermittent FastingIntermittent fasting can improve health by promoting fat burning, stabilizing blood sugar, reducing cravings caused by gut bacteria, repairing cells, and emphasizing the importance of when we eat.

      Intermittent fasting can have significant benefits for our health. It helps switch our body into a fat-burning state, stabilizes blood sugar, and turns off hunger by producing ketones that go up into the brain. Additionally, fasting can lead to positive changes in our gut microbiome, reducing cravings caused by bacteria like Candida. By going into fasted states, we can repopulate our gut with diverse and healthy bacteria and eliminate the bad ones responsible for food cravings. Fasting also repairs our cells, reducing inflammation and providing them with the nutrition they need. It's important to note that the ketogenic diet has become commercialized, but we should focus on eating nature's carbs, such as vegetables and fruits. Instead of getting caught up in debates about low or high carb, it's crucial to prioritize going through periods of not eating to generate the ketones our brain requires. By emphasizing the distinction between what we eat and when we eat, we can better navigate the benefits of intermittent fasting.

    • The Truth About Fasting: It's a Healing Protocol Supported by ResearchFasting can activate healing and health responses, but it is crucial to involve a doctor, especially for those with pre-diabetes, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease. Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and individuals with eating disorders should avoid fasting.

      Fasting is not about calorie restriction or disordered eating, but rather a protocol supported by profound research that activates healing and health responses. It is important to involve a medical doctor in the fasting journey, especially for individuals with pre-diabetes, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease. Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and individuals with eating disorders or food challenges should avoid fasting. Coffee is allowed during fasting, as long as it does not spike blood sugar. Creamer and sugar should be avoided, but full-fat cream can be included. Additionally, there are six different types of fasting, each with different durations and health benefits, debunking the notion that all fasting is intermittent fasting.

    • Exploring the Various Health Benefits of Fasting at Different Time IntervalsFasting at different time intervals can provide a range of benefits, from decreased glucose levels and reduced inflammation to gut health improvement and immune system reset. Intermittent fasting can also help with inflammation reduction and nutrient absorption.

      Fasting can provide various healing and health benefits depending on the length of time. Starting with intermittent fasting, which lasts for about 12-15 hours, you can expect decreased glucose levels, reduced inflammation, and the activation of growth hormone for fat burning and anti-aging effects. Moving to a 17-hour fasting window triggers autophagy, where your body's repair system eliminates dysfunctional cell components and potentially harmful cells like cancer cells. A 24-hour fasting period allows for a gut reset, promoting the production of intestinal stem cells and improving gut health. At 36 hours, the body starts burning stored fat. After 48 hours, you experience a dopamine reset, leading to increased happiness. Finally, a 72-hour fast can reset the immune system by replacing stagnant white blood cells. When it comes to counting the fasting window, it begins from the last piece of food or drink and includes the duration of sleep. Intermittent fasting can decrease inflammation and improve nutrient absorption.

    • Unlocking the Health Benefits of Intermittent FastingPracticing intermittent fasting for 12 to 16 hours can stimulate fat burning, reduce inflammation, and promote weight loss while inducing a feeling of calmness and suppressing hunger.

      Intermittent fasting can have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation, stimulating the production of growth hormone, and promoting fat burning and weight loss. By practicing intermittent fasting for 12 to 16 hours and timing it appropriately, such as starting the fasting period around 9 PM and breaking the fast between 9 AM and 12 PM, individuals can unlock these benefits. Intermittent fasting triggers a metabolic switch that puts the body into a fat-burning state, leading to the loss of belly fat. Additionally, during a fasted state, the production of ketones increases, which not only aids in burning fat but also suppresses hunger and promotes a calm and peaceful feeling due to the production of the neurotransmitter GABA.

    • The Health Benefits of a 17-hour Fasting WindowIncorporating a 17-hour fasting window can promote cellular detoxification, improve overall health, and potentially help prevent cancer recurrence. Fasting for just 13 hours daily can decrease breast cancer recurrence by 64%.

      Building a fasting lifestyle, specifically incorporating a 17-hour fasting window, can have significant health benefits. During this fasting period, known as autophagy, the body initiates a self-cleaning process by consuming and repairing damaged cells. This internal cellular detox can improve overall health and even help prevent cancer recurrence. Fasting for just 13 hours daily has been shown to decrease breast cancer recurrence by 64%. The fasting protocol allows the body to rest and recover, eliminating toxins and promoting self-healing. While the duration and frequency of autophagy fasting can vary based on personal preference and health conditions, incorporating it into one's lifestyle can unlock numerous health benefits.

    • The benefits of fasting and different fasting protocolsFasting can improve health through cellular cleansing, hormone regulation, virus and bacteria defense, and specific benefits like stem cell production and belly fat reduction.

      Fasting can have numerous benefits for our bodies. Many people find that fasting becomes easier the more they do it, allowing them to extend their fasting periods for even greater benefits. Fasting, particularly through autophagy, can help with cellular cleansing and detoxification, making it an attractive option for those looking to improve their health. Moreover, fasting can increase hormone levels, including estrogen which can boost libido. Fasting also activates the body's ability to fight off viruses and bacteria by depriving them of a fuel source. Additionally, different fasting protocols, such as a 24-hour gut reset fast or a 36-hour fat burner fast, offer specific benefits like stem cell production and belly fat reduction. Overall, fasting can be a cost-effective and well-researched method to optimize our health.

    • The Power of Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss and Well-BeingIntermittent fasting can lead to weight loss and better mental well-being by gradually increasing fasting periods and activating the body's metabolic switch to burn fat. Consulting a doctor is advised, especially for those on medication.

      Intermittent fasting can have a significant impact on weight loss and overall well-being. The protocol discussed involves gradually increasing fasting periods, starting with a 12-hour fast and eventually working up to a 36 or even 48-hour fast. By training the body to go without food for extended periods, it activates a metabolic switch that burns stored fat and promotes weight loss. Additionally, a 48-hour fast can reset the dopamine system, improving motivation and lowering anxiety levels. Reintroducing food after a fast can enhance enjoyment and even increase happiness levels for weeks following the fast. It is important to consult a doctor when undergoing this protocol if on prescribed medication. Overall, intermittent fasting can be a powerful tool for those looking to improve their health and lose weight.

    • The Healing Power of Fasting: Boosting Immunity and Promoting Natural HealingFasting protocols, including immune reset fasting, can enhance the immune system, aid in cancer treatment, reduce inflammation, improve cell function, repair chronic injuries, and combat belly fat and brain fog.

      Fasting protocols, such as intermittent fasting and immune reset fasts, can have powerful healing effects on the body. Immune reset fasting, which lasts more than 72 hours, can reboot the immune system, as discovered by a scientist at USC. This fasting method has been found to help cancer patients going through chemotherapy by re-energizing white blood cells and preventing immune system depletion. Additionally, fasting protocols can help the body heal naturally by reducing inflammation, eliminating harmful components, and improving cell function. Fasting also promotes the production of stem cells, which can repair various parts of the body, including chronic injuries and degenerating neurons in the brain. Furthermore, fasting can combat belly fat and fight brain fog by reducing brain inflammation and promoting the production of ketones, which repair damaged brain parts.

    • Maximizing the Benefits of Fasting: Understanding Gender and Hormone Differences and Helpful HacksTailoring your fasting protocol based on your gender and hormone cycles can optimize the benefits. Stay tuned for three helpful hacks to make incorporating fasting into your life easier.

      Fasting can have different protocols depending on your gender and hormone cycles. It's important to understand these differences and follow the appropriate protocol to maximize the benefits of fasting. Additionally, implementing fasting into your life can be made easier with three helpful hacks that will be discussed in the next episode.
