Here’s what Jimmy and Scott talked about in Episode 36:

Her journey to good health started a few years ago after bringing our youngest daughter home from China
She had many health challenges and was very malnourished at 2 and 1/2 years old (she couldn't stand on her own, walk or even crawl!
Had been listening to LLVLC for 6 months or so
Really didn't eat "bad" and certainly not the SAD, but it wasn't really all that "good" either
Decided that she was going to use nutrition to heal her daughter
Listened to all of the past episodes of LLVLC she could fit into each day and she mostly focused on a Paleo lifestyle
Things got much better, but she felt like they could do more
Visited a functional medical doctor for son's health
Discovered keto and Keto Clarity, then Fasting Talk
Found out she battled candida overgrowth
Started water only fast, then IF
Husband joined her in keto
Starting NTP training
Looking forward to helping others find their path to health

Here’s what Jimmy and Charlotte talked about in Episode 32:

– As a child having a sweet tooth

– A sugar addict when young, even though she was thin

– Health deteriorated at age 22

– Lost her dad to cancer very suddenly at 20 and the stress & shock of it along with poor diet led to irregular periods, phases of depression, bad skin, poor digestion and a general weakened immune system

– Got to a point where she felt like she was dying

– Home from work for a week and prayed to God that she would not die

– Soon came across the paleo diet and began learning about Candida and the effects that toxins, sugar, and lifestyle can have on the body

– Giving up sugar/carbs was probably one of the hardest things she had to do in her life but from feeling so sick she knew her health was the most important thing

– had a lot of body fat compared to bone mass having slowly crept up from UK 6 to size UK 10 by the time she reached 23/24

– Discovered fasting and began to get her health back

– realized that with fasting, especially for women it's important to keep your body fat within a healthy percentage for your frame. I also

– Realized she could fast naturally when increasing her fats and not having to worry about body weight if I am nourishing myself well enough with good quality protein,  (i.e. Fully pastured meat) healthy fats and vegetables which are mostly above ground and nothing too

– If nourishing well enough with good quality protein,  (i.e. Fully pastured meat) healthy fats and vegetables which are mostly above ground and nothing too starchy I still eat carbs every now and then i.e. Blueberries / sweet

– Still eats carbs every now and then i.e. Blueberries / sweet potato but from understanding her body so much now she needs very little

– Within just 6 weeks of switching to a ketogenic diet, her menstrual cycle returned and has been on time ever since. It's the best it's been since 22 (5 years ago)

TESTIMONIAL:
 
Jimmy,

 

I’ve always had troubles with my triglycerides since I gained weight after college. When I had them tested in December, they came back at 4543 mg/dL. These results were so shockingly high that they had to do the tests twice to verify the number! In January I started researching options for lowering my triglycerides and came across intermittent fasting. I eased into it over a two-week period to get acclimated from the sugar withdrawal, along with cutting out all of the bad white foods in my diet. While I was going through this, I came The Compete Guide to Fasting audiobook. After listening, I felt confident that I was on the right track because for once the science actually made sense. So I started adding 36-hour fasts on the weekend and had my triglycerides tested again. The results came back at 748 mg/dL. I’ve also experienced a weight loss of 15 pounds. So, I just wanted to say thanks.  I’m currently listening to Keto Clarity and considering adding a ketogenic diet to my fasting.

1. What are the specific dangers and concerns of doing a fast without medical supervision?

Hey guys,

Can you go over the dangers of doing a 7-day distilled water-only fast without any medical supervision? I am on a very tight budget and can’t really afford to go see the doctor to monitor me. When I asked my personal doctor about fasting, he said that I should monitor my urine pH levels and that if they get too acidic to stop the fast. But he didn’t say what level that is. Would you concur with this? I know you can’t endorse doing a fast without medical supervision, but for folks who are going to do it anyway, is there any advice that you can give?

Thanks for your help,

Margaret

2. Is it possible to heal a food reactivity/allergy like eggs and dairy with a water-only fast?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

I really really really want to permanently heal my reactivity to eggs where I experience itchy eyes, nose, lips, along with a runny nose. And I’ve done every friggin’ thing under the sun food-wise: supplements, keto, autoimmune protocol, Paleo, and fasting. At some point, my reaction to eggs inevitably returns and I need to give them up for a while. Have you seen people who have fasted permanently find success healing their reactivity to eggs and dairy? Success in my world means no symptoms or inflammation-related weight gain. I haven’t attempted a water-only fast yet and this is the next thing I would like to try. I realize this is probably going to be a long-term project and not something I’m going to knock out in two weeks. Thank you all for the encouragement and realism: progress, not perfection is my motto now.

Take care and thanks again,

Sheila

3. Is it normal to experience stomach pain that disrupts sleep when fasting for more than 24 hours?

Hey guys,

I love listening to Fasting Talk and reading your book. I’ve been IF for a year now. Started with 16/8 and then have been doing 18/6 for a long time. I’ve done a few 24 hour fasts, a 48 hour fast, and most recently a 42 hour fast for the purposes of fat loss. My question for you guys is this: Is it common to get stomach pain when fasting for more than 24 hours? It's not hunger pangs, but feels like gastritis pain. In fact, the pain wakes me up at night it’s so bad. I don’t feel this pain when I’m eating and I only find relief from it while fasting when I drink spiced tea. Have you had any IDM patients deal with anything like this?

Thank you,

Monika

4. Does combining a ketogenic diet with intermittent fasting cause a delay in the menstrual cycle or even missing a period?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I have been doing IF and keto for about a month and half and I love the combination because it allows me to enjoy real food when I eat and gives me excellent mental clarity. My purpose in IF and keto is to prevent Type 2 diabetes since my A1c has been 5.8 the past couple of years. I’m already seeing my blood sugar and A1c drop, so I’m very happy with my nutritional choices.

However, I do have a concern that I’ve noticed. Before my IF and keto protocol, my periods usually come every 38 days. But since I changed my diet and added fasting, it has been 46 days since my last menstrual cycle and I still have no period. Does the combination of IF and keto cause a delay in the menstrual cycle or even missing a cycle? Keto Talk and Fasting Talk are my favorite podcasts and they’ve helped me so much. Thank you for your consideration of my question.

5. Is there a degree or certification for ketogenic diets and fasting that you can recommend to guide clients nutritionally?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I'm a personal trainer and want to go to school to become a registered dietician. But since my desire is to promote the ketogenic diet, I’m concerned seeing so many RDs facing backlash and possibly losing their license for going "off-script.” As a personal trainer, we are supposed to educate our clients on how to eat, but all they promote is the government-recommended low-fat diet. I also want to promote fasting to my clients, but I’m not sure whether there is a degree or certification I could obtain to properly guide my clients. Do you have any advice for a health and fitness professional like me who wants to share about keto and fasting?

Thank you for your time,

Ashley

1. Why did I turn yellow and feel unwell at the end of a 7-day fast?
Dear Jimmy and Megan,

I recently completed my first 7-day fast and I felt GREAT with tons of energy. I would have continued, but I literally turned yellow and looked desiccated, haggard and unwell. I’ve completed a number of 4-5 day fasts in the past with much less of a problem than anything like this. Have you run across this in the IDM clinic and should I push through and hope it will this improve with time? I don’t have diabetes or any other underlying medical problems.

Thanks!

Elizabeth

2. Does fasting raise blood pressure levels?

Hi guys,

For the last month, I have been doing the 5:2 version of fasting as a warm-up for some of the protocols you set out in your fasting book. I’m 46, not diabetic but I am overweight with a BMI of 28, and I’m hoping fasting will prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes, lead to weight loss, and re-calibrate my eating habits. So far I’ve lost 4 pounds, my clothes are looser, and I no longer feel polluted inside. Fasting days are not always easy, especially in this cold northern England climate, but I still look forward to them!

I have recently started having significantly higher blood pressure readings than usual (138/75 upon waking). I’m not completely sure why this is happening, but I did recently complete a course of prednisone for asthma and a chest infection. I also have a busy job with two lively young children. Enough said, right? But I have heard from people on a 5:2 fasting forum that fasting itself may have caused my elevated blood pressure.

Is it true that fasting leads to an increase in blood pressure levels? Thank you for the book and the podcast. I’ve learned so much from both and use them to inspire me when fasting gets hard.

3. Is there a difference between drinking distilled water and filtered water when you are on a water fast?

Hey guys,

What’s the difference between drinking distilled water vs. filtered water on a water-only fast? Is there any benefit to using one over the other?

4. Should I be concerned about my appetite dropping on feasting days to match my fasting days during an intermittent fast?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I love listening to Fasting Talk and I have a question for you guys. I’ve just started alternate day fasting and I’m fasting on 500 calories (M, W and F) and then eating normally the other 4 days. It’s going pretty well for me so far, but I’m finding that on the “normal eating” days my appetite has reduced a fair bit and I’m not wanting to eat the same amount as I did prior to beginning alternate day fasting. My concern is if I reduce the amount of food I eat to fit with my lowering appetite levels that it will begin to creep downward to where it is on my non-fasting days. Am I at risk for slowing down my metabolism doing this? As someone who has spent most of her life as a yo-yo dieter, I’m really worried about rebound weight gain from doing this.

Can you offer any tips on what I can do to prevent this from happening? I am loving alternate day fasting and really getting into the groove with it. Help me optimize the results I’ll get from it. Thanks for this great podcast…it’s at the top of my listening list!

5. Do the watery stools/diarrhea that can happen during and after a fast be an indication of and come from gut bacteria dying off?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I am one of those people who ends up with watery stools during and after I break a fast. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about why. I know Jimmy mentioned that he was also puzzled as to what is coming out when nothing is going in during an extended fast. Is it possible that some of the bowel bacteria (which I understand make up a good deal of stool) are dying from not being fed? And since they are dead, they are eliminated from the body while extended fasting? It certainly smells like something died in there. I also wonder whether some of the health improvements of fasting occur because of the elimination of carb-loving bacteria and replacing them with the ones that survive better while fasting. I imagine those are the bacteria that would have thrived inside our ancient ancestors who regularly fasted.
Is there any merit to my theory? Thanks for the new podcast, I never miss it!

HOT TOPIC: Why one meal a day fasting isn’t a good idea
 
1. Can I fast if I am still nursing and would an intermittent fast be better than extended fasting for the milk?
 
Hi guys! 
 
I’m excited to see this podcast because I have had so many questions about fasting. Currently I am nursing and most likely will be for another year. Can I still fast? I’m wondering about how fasting affects the milk with all the detoxing that takes place? Would an intermittent fast be better than longer fasts while I’m nursing? I’m currently eating Paleo with white potatoes, but I’m ready to switch over to a ketogenic diet with intermittent fasting using Bulletproof tea with gelatin.
 
Thanks for your advice!

2. Can I fast for a couple of days prior to running a marathon to more efficiently burn fat for fuel during the race?
 
Hey Jimmy and Megan,
 
Thanks for doing Fasting Talk. It’s been a useful, professional, and inspirational guide in building my fasting knowledge. I made my first fasting attempt this week and made it 48 hours with my typical intense workouts (hard running on one day and swimming the next day) just to see what would happen. To my surprise, I had lots of energy to power through my workouts. So my question for you guys is this: Is it a good idea to fast for two days prior to running a marathon? My goal is to efficiently burn fat for fuel during the race, so will this strategy help me?
 
Thanks for take the time to answer my question.

4. Does pain symptom improvement while extended fasting mean the damaged cells are removed or is it simply the inflammation going down?
 
Hey guys,
 
I have been suffering with awful post nasal drip for over a year along with a sore Achilles heel and I thought my running career was over (I’m a long distance runner and keto athlete). I began fasting in January consuming water, tea, and bone broth. By the 36-hour, my post nasal drip had vanished and some tooth pain I was having had disappeared as well. By Day 5, my Achilles pain was 50% more tolerable. I felt so good on Day 7 that I continued my fast. I’m currently on Day 9 and ran 10 miles yesterday. I noticed my Achilles pain was minimal during that run and the morning stiffness I had been experiencing has vanished. Finally, my nagging tennis elbow in my right arm is now pain-free. Does this mean that the fast has perhaps eaten all the damaged cells that were causing all these symptoms? Or is it more likely that my inflammation is down significantly as a result of the fasting to allow healing?
 
Fasting ROCKS and thanks SO much for your work sharing about it! I’m so excited about this podcast and The Complete Guide To Fasting. THANK YOU!

5. Does black coffee activate enzymes in the liver that prevent someone who drinks it during a fast to experience the full benefits?
 
Hey guys,
 
Love this podcast! Thank you for all you are doing for people all over the world! Keep up the great work. I was curious, I heard one of your fellow podcasters Dr. Rhonda Patrick (Find My Fitness podcast) state that even black coffee activates some enzymes in the liver. She noted that this means technically a fast that allows for black coffee is not a true fast. Personally, I feel I get the benefits of my 24 and 36 hour fasts even with my black coffee. My question for you is this: In light of this information from Dr. Patrick, can we still experience autophagy and other fasting benefits while drinking coffee? Or do we only get these benefits from a water-only fast? 
 
Thank you!

HOT TOPIC: How much to eat on feasting days to distinguish from fasting days?

1. Why do I have a tight feeling in my throat while I’m extended fasting? Is it my thyroid detoxing or something else?

Hello Jimmy and Megan!

I’m now 4 1/2 days into my first ever 7-day water fast. Thanks to The Complete Guide to Fasting, I was well-prepared and I managed the first two days just fine and the hunger pangs are all but gone now. I’m sleeping soundly, and my daily energy levels are sufficient enough to handle my normal activities, but I don’t feel like there’s enough gas in the tank for my normal exercise routines. I do have a few worrisome symptom that I wanted to ask you about. I’ve noticed a tight feeling in my throat starting in the morning of Day 3. It’s located around the hollow of my neck just at and above the level of my collar bone. It’s actually something I used to feel all the time, before I adopted a cleaner way of eating over a year ago and that sensation has been gone for several months. But now it’s back with a vengeance since I commenced extended fasting. It seems to be where I think my thyroid is, so of course I’m wondering if my thyroid is suffering or just detoxing and getting healthy and strong again. Any ideas about what might be going on?

Bless you for resurrecting the important tool of fasting! I had all but given up on shedding these extra 10 pounds that suddenly appeared a couple years ago. I’m thrilled about reforming my eating habits, improving my blood sugar, and EASILY eliminating wheat and artificial sweeteners, and of course the weight loss.

Warm regards,

Meg

3. Would limiting my fasting to non-training days be best for someone like me doing Brazilian jiu jitsu?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

About two years ago I was living a sedentary lifestyle and weighed 275 pounds at 5'9". Now I'm down to 190 pounds after a lot of hard work and not drastically changing my eating habits other than cutting out sodas, cakes, and other sugary snacks. I'm what you might call a "fatthlete" (fat athlete). I train Brazilian jiu jitsu five days a week and I'm a little worried about fasting because from what I understand about it vigorous physical activity can cause problems for people. What are your thoughts on circadian fasting or fasting only on days I don't train? Would those be better fasting options for me?

Thank you in advance for your advice,

James

4. Is it okay to engage in a fast post-surgery? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Hi guys,

I’m so glad I found Fasting Talk. I already listened to Keto Talk and this new podcast makes my life complete. What I want to know about is if there are any guidelines for fasting after surgery. Is there a time period when it’s not advisable to fast post-op? Or does it depend of the surgery? I had my appendix out just before Christmas and while I felt fine doing a 40-hour fast in the week afterwards, my husband got rather anxious about me doing this. I have been doing a 20-4 intermittent fast most days for the last year with occasional longer fasts. But I haven’t found any information about fasting post-surgery anywhere.

5. Can you fast consuming green vegetable juice and coconut water? How about with the Master cleanse?

Hi guys,

I’m curious to know if you would ever recommend fasting on green vegetable juice and coconut water? Also, I’ve heard about a lot of people having success doing the Master cleanse which uses lemons and maple syrup? I know the latter has a lot of sugar but maybe this works best for people who are more insulin sensitive. Any thoughts on this?

KEY QUOTE: "A bad night of sleep or a stressful day can cause radical shifts in your fasting insulin levels so we look for more longterm changes and trends." – Megan Ramos

HOT TOPIC: What are the signs a patient can look for that indicate there is healing happening to their insulin resistance?
 
Hey Jimmy and Megan,
 
I just finished up my first extended fast at 67 hours thanks to the information that you and Megan share on your awesome podcast.  I’m down 3 pounds, blood sugar 63, blood ketones 6.6. I had improved blood pressure, amazing mental clarity and even ran my fastest 5K ever. Wow! I’m going to keep extended fasting as part of my routine along with regular intermittent fasting. I have a question for you guys that I haven’t heard addressed yet. Other than measuring changes in blood glucose and ketone levels, how would someone know they are improving their insulin resistance? Are there ways you quantify this in your patients at IDM?

 

Thanks so much for all that you do.  I am so very grateful that I found you guys!

1. What are the hormone improvements and adaptations that take place doing shorter fasts of 24-36 hours?
 
Dear Jimmy and Megan,
 
I have read Keto Clarity, The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting, so thanks for all these great resources. In The Obesity Code, Dr. Fung writes about a lot of adaptations that happen during fasting including a rise in epinephrine. But according to the book, those adaptations do not kick in until around Day 3 or 4 of extended fasting. So what I want to know is what hormonal improvements or adaptations take place during an intermittent or alternate day fasting period of 24-36 hours?
 
Keep up the great work!  I’ve been intermittent fasting for 10 weeks and I’m down 20 pounds!
 
Thanks,

2. Why am I not getting the same benefits from fasting now that had I previously when I fasted? What can I do about it?
 
Hey Jimmy and Megan,
 
Many years ago, I would regularly fast twice weekly for 24 hours at a time. I experienced improved energy, weight loss, improved body composition, and lower inflammation levels. I then fell off the wagon for a few years with changes in employment and other life circumstances. But in recent months I have started fasting again and follow a ketogenic diet when I’m feasting. But I’ve noticed since coming back to fasting again that the amazing benefits that I had previously aren’t happening. Do you have any recommendations for someone like me who has seen the positive impact of fasting before and is not seeing it now? Why is this happening?
 
Thanks so much for answering my question. I am loving the new podcast…it's so motivating!
 
Warm regards,
 
Christine from Australia

3. Which fasting protocol is best for weight loss? How do you lose weight doing IF? How long before you burn stored body fat while extended fasting?
 
Dear Jimmy and Megan,
 
Thank you for creating this podcast on fasting. My question for you is about weight loss. What is the best fasting strategy for losing weight? I’ve heard that when you fast, it takes about 24-36 hours for your glycogen stores in the liver to become completely depleted and then you begin to burn your own stored body fat for energy. If that's true, then intermittent fasting would seemingly not work for losing weight because after about 16-20 hours of IF you start eating again. So how is it possible to lose weight on IF? Thus, it seems that extended fasting would be better than IF for the purposes of weight loss. Am I right? And how long does it take before you start losing stored body fat during fasting and not just water weight?
 
Thank you so much. I just listened to your audiobook for The Complete Guide To Fasting. Keep up the great work!

4. What are the signs of electrolyte imbalance during a fast and what are your best tips for replenishing these electrolytes on a water-only extended fast?
 
Hi Jimmy and Megan,

 

I have engaged in extended water fasting twice—one 5-day fast and one 8-day fast. Interestingly, I experienced brain fog and tiredness throughout these fasts and I’m thinking I might be having issues with keeping my electrolytes in balance. So what are your very best tips for replenishing electrolytes during an extended water fast? And what are the signs to look for that electrolytes are out of whack?

 

I’m planning on doing an even longer fast the next time and your advice is appreciated. I took a multivitamin, fish oil, lite salt (for the sodium and potassium), and Himalayan rock sea salt. Thank you for your help!

 

Adam
 
5. Why don’t you recommend coffee enemas during an extended fasting for the added cleansing benefits it provides?
 
Hey guys,
 
Why don't you recommend people to use enemas during their fasting? Coffee enemas are highly recommended by people like Dr. Nicholas Gonzales and others for cancer, cleansing the liver, and more?
 
Great show!

SPECIAL GUEST: Hayley Porteous

My name is Hayley and I am a Menopausal Momma to two kids (11 and 14). I am a Mental health clinician and am one course short of finishing my Masters of Health Administration. I live in Victoria which is on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Like most people, I have tried everything to “stay healthy” and lose weight. But nothing really worked for long. The scientific evidence that Dr Jason Fung presented in the Obesity Code really made sense to me and I began the IDM program at the end of November 2016. I feel like I have found the answer I was looking for and my life will never be the same!

KEY QUOTE: “I felt so good after trying low-carb high-fat and fasting that I never wanted to go back.” – Hayley Porteous

HOT TOPIC: Is it necessary to go ketogenic prior to fasting? Or can you eat a high-carb diet and still fast?

1. How often can someone do an extended fast? How do you prevent gaining back all the weight loss during an extended fast?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

Fasting has totally changed my life, so thank you for sharing on this podcast. I have a few questions for you that I would love to hear the answers to. How often can you engage in extended fasts of five or more days? And how can I be sure that I don’t regain all the weight I lose while on an extended fast?

Thanks for your help,

KEY QUOTE: “In our clinic we work on fasting first and diet second. Fasting helps regulate hunger hormones then you make better food choices. ” – Megan Ramos

2. Why did my fasting blood glucose spike on the day after an alternate day fast? Does eating this Mercola-styled meal actually enhance your fasting?

Hey guys,

I am really enjoying Fasting Talk. I love and appreciate Dr. Fung's ability to relate info in a way that anyone can understand. And, of course, I have listened to you, Jimmy, for a long time. I am loving Megan Ramos and look forward to hearing more from her on upcoming episodes. My question for you guys is this: I practice alternate day fasting and I take my blood sugar reading the morning after a fasting day. Much to my surprise, my last reading jumped 25 points! I have read that sometimes this happens when hormones such as cortisol, glucagon, and epinephrine are released causing the liver to release glucose. Incidentally, I did eat a small meal of 3 ounces of ham and 8 ounces green beans about 3-4 before bed, so possibly that is the culprit in my higher reading. Dr. Joe Marcela was the one who recommended eating a meal consisting of 500 calories or less with 20-30g protein and 8 ounces of green vegetable to enhance my fasting so I thought I’d give it a try.

Thanks for helping me figure this out,

Dennis

3. What would be the benefits of fasting for only two days when it seems the most results coming after that?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

Thanks for the awesomely informative podcast! I'm pretty familiar with keto, but I’m absolutely clueless about fasting. I have a question for you guys to address today about fasting. Several things seem to spike up during the first few days of fasting before going down again. Doesn't this mean that doing a two-day fast means you are only getting the worst part of the fasting experience? Don’t people who do this short of a fast deny themselves of seeing the ultimate benefits of seeing these things coming back down again and feeling good on the other side?

I appreciate your insights,

4. Why did I experience hypoglycemia in Day 2 of an extended fast? What can I do to prevent this from happening again?

Hi guys,

I've read The Complete Guide to Fasting and have been loving the Fasting Talk podcast. As a science teacher, I really appreciate how you present the information. I initiated what I wanted to be a four-day fast and maybe longer recently. I made it to the 32-hour mark before experiencing signs of hypoglycemia. I was shaky, dizzy, faint, and very weak despite my heart rate at around 100 bpm. When I checked my blood sugar, it was down to 33. Because I didn’t feel safe to drive at the moment, I decided to drink 8 ounces of pomegranate juice since that was the only thing I could find to bring my blood sugar back up. I assume it improved because the symptoms decreased a bit and I made it to work safely. I'm generally healthy except for elevated cholesterol and a bit of excess weight and I'm hoping these things will be fixed by fasting and keto. Any thoughts on what happened here and should I be concerned? If I try to do an extended fast again, do you have any tips to prevent this the next time?

Thanks for your help!

TESTIMONY:

Hey Megan,

I just wanted to tell you how your advice to switch it up is working for me. I'm on my second time through a 6 day cycle of 3 days fasting followed by 3 days feasting. Before I started, I was eating keto to satiety and slowly gaining weight. I was eating a lot at night, eating lots of macadamias, and drinking wine. So, I was primed for a change. My first day of a 3-day fast started with keto coffee (lots of coconut oil and a pinch of cayenne). Midday I had a mug of bone broth with a Tbsp of butter melted in it. At night I went right for salt-water with a dash of Chipotle chili pepper powder. I use Morton lite-salt so I can get some Potassium. On the second and third days of the fast I only drank black coffee and my hot salt-water concoction. At the end of the 3-day fast my fingers were getting cold but I had lost 7 pounds.

I broke the fast with a handful of nuts and then a big meal after about 30 minutes. I feasted for 3 days eating 2 meals a day within a 6-hour window for an 18-hour intermittent fast. I know I overate a couple times with plenty of butter and macadamia nuts for lots of fat—lots. I was poaching burgers in butter, eating rib eye steaks, fried fish with keto breading, and an entire jar of tartar sauce. Still, I didn't gain an ounce in the 3 days that I feasted. Yesterday was my first day back to fasting. I started the day with keto coffee again, and my salt-water concoction with 1 tbsp of butter, and a couple more of those without the butter later in the day. This morning I had lost another 3 pounds. So, that's 10 pounds in 7 days—the most weight I've ever lost in a week. Ever. Also, last night my blood sugar was the lowest I've ever recorded it at 66.

The first day of fasting is challenging, even the second time around. Last night I was dreaming of fast food. But, I got over it, and it was smooth sailing again here on Day 2. This pattern seems to really be working for me and I plan to continue on this path until it stops working. Thanks for the great advice. You guys are awesome.

Carl

HOT TOPIC: Fasting: Worried about messing up metabolism by “doing it wrong”

1. Does eating a small amount of food in the middle of an extended fast impact my insulin levels and fasting efforts?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

I love The Complete Guide to Fasting and have learned so much from it and your Fasting Talk podcast. I have a question for you guys. I started my fast on Thursday at 7:30pm and went until 11:30pm Saturday temporarily breaking the fast with 1 Tbs of natural peanut butter and a few bites of brussels sprouts. Then I decided to fast all day Sunday throughTuesday at 7:30 PM. All in all, it was a total of five days with that little bit of food. What if anything did that food break do to my insulin levels and fasting efforts? I have three small children and can’t check my insulin levels, so any insights you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Brieanne

2. Can someone with bulimia or binge eating disorder engage in fasting? Would this be beneficial or detrimental towards their efforts of overcoming it?

Dear Jimmy and Megan,

I have read your book on fasting and it was so full of great knowledge that I am grateful for. I am currently breastfeeding, so I am not fasting right now. But I am looking forward to start fasting soon. In your book I took notice of how people with eating disorders, specifically anorexia, shouldn't be fasting and this makes a lot sense. But what about people who have bulimia and binge eating disorder? Should they also steer clear of fasting? Are there any physical or hormonal benefits to be gained for someone like this to start fasting or will this simply perpetuate the binging behavior.

Thanks for this podcast and for your amazing work!

Teresa

3. Is Diurnal Fasting with no food or beverages during daylight hours a viable option for fasting?

Can you guys talk about the health effects of what is known as Diurnal Fasting where you engage in complete abstinence from food and beverages during daylight hours? Is this a good way to fast and are there any potential downfalls to doing it this way as compared to what you teach in the IDM clinic?

Thank you,

Catherine

4. How will I know when I am fat-adapted enough to push my fasting periods beyond intermittent fasting?

I have been doing some form of LCHF/keto since August 2016 and have lost 30 pounds. I've been following the mantra to only eat when I’m hungry which is how I started unintentionally intermittent fasting. Most days I end up doing 18:6 but just can't get past 20 hours. I hear people say to get fully fat-adapted before trying longer fasting, so how will I know when I am there?

Thanks in advance,

Danielle

SPECIAL GUEST PATIENT: Nadia C. Brito Pateguana, ND

I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend, but I am also a Naturopathic Doctor. This means that I look at patients, and health, from a holistic point of view. I don't see organs, I don't see illnesses, I see people.

I graduated from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (www.ccnm.edu) in 2004. I have a Degree in Honours Biology from McMaster University (2000). My interest has always been how to heal the human body. In search for my own wellness I discovered Naturopathic Medicine. We believe in the Healing Power of Nature; the body's ability to heal thyself. Our first and foremost Principle is "To Do No Harm", and I try to follow this to the best of my capacity at all times. With a strong science-based approach, CCNM's 4 year program includes TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Nutrition, Counselling, and all the other Medical Sciences.  My focus has always been on Nutrition. Mostly, I use FOOD as my medicine!

KEY QUOTE: “Most people can master fasting, it's the diet they have trouble with. Fasting and starving are not the same thing. When it's time to eat, EAT.” – Nadia C. Brito Pateguana, ND

Here’s what Jimmy, Megan, and Dr. Pateguana talked about in Episode 13:

FEEDBACK FROM A LISTENER:

Hello Jimmy and Megan,

I think I know why people say that women cannot fast. I used to be a woman who struggled with fasting but it was because I was making one major mistake that is more common among women and less common among men. Women are much more likely to under-eat by a significant amount of calories, then they overtrain in their workouts, and on top of that try to incorporate fasting into their health strategy. When you under-eat and also fast, the body thinks you are starving and I have heard Dr. Fung speak about this inducing starvation mode. Would you please underscore to your female listeners in particular that if you eat an adequate number of calories when you are feeding that fasting is not only fine but it can actually help to reset your circadian rhythm and other bodily functions? It has helped my body balance my hormones in a way that even nutritional ketosis could not on its own. I would love to start a women's fasting group on Facebook and I hope I can invite you all to join. Thanks again for this great podcast.

1. Why did I get extreme nausea in the midst of my extended fast?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I’m a 56-year old woman who started fasting with a goal of lowering my blood sugar and losing weight. I just finished a 24-day water and black coffee fast and ended my goal of 30 days because of extreme nausea. By Day 8, I started to drag a bit and so I began drinking some homemade bone broth. But then I became nauseous from drinking the broth a couple of days later and ditched that. A few days after that the coffee I was drinking made me nauseous, too. By Day 15, I was only drinking water and pushed my way to Day 24 before ending it. Why did I have such extreme nausea while fasting?

Thank you for helping me with this!

Corinne

2. Does fasting make the symptoms of the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s better or worse?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

From what I read about fasting, it seems to be a potential therapy for autoimmune conditions. But thyroid specialist and neurologist Dr. Datis Kharrazian says that one of the 10 mistakes that Hashimoto’s patients make is the following:

“When blood sugar gets too low it raises the inflammatory messenger IL-6 and promotes autoimmune flare-ups. Symptoms of low blood sugar are most noticeable between meals or if you skip meals and include shakiness, blurred vision, crankiness and irritability, and loss of function. If you feel a jump in your function and energy after eating it confirms your blood sugar was low—when your blood sugar is stable the only thing you should feel after eating is not hungry. Constantly skipping breakfast and missing meals will aggravate your autoimmune response and promote autoimmune flare-ups.”

I know Dr. Fung has said there is no impact to the thyroid when fasting. But do we know what impact fasting has on Hashimoto’s? It seems the autoimmune disease is made worse by fasting, not better. I am under the care of a functional medicine doctor and have adopted all of his proposed lifestyle changes to heal my Hashimoto’s. I tried a two-day fast and saw ketones rise to 7.7 mmol and blood glucose drop to 58 before I broke the fast. It was a water-only fast with sea salt and occasional bone broth. Two days later, I didn’t feel great and developed a sore throat with excessive sleeping. Did I have a flare up of my Hashimoto’s from fasting?

Thanks,

Maria

3. Does fasting lead to the development of the “keto rash?”

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I have been in nutritional ketosis for over two years and have successfully trained for and ran in two marathons over the past year in a fasted state. I have read The Complete Guide To Fasting and have undertaken my first extended fast which lasted four days. During the fast I had a recurrence of what appears to be a so-called “keto rash” which I have had on and off since I've been eating ketogenic. I am wondering if Dr. Fung has seen this in his fasting and ketogenic patients and what could be causing this. Is this something to be concerned about when fasting?

Kind regards,

4. What is the shortest fasting time for getting the autophagic benefits of fasting and do adding in nutrients negatively impact autophagy?

Hey guys,

I was afraid of dealing with hunger and stressful work situations at the same time if I fasted. But hearing Jimmy talk about drinking kombucha and bone broth during his fast was my "aha" moment! And I have now lost 14 pounds in 6 days doing intermittent fasting for 24 hour while enjoying coffee with cream and Perrier eating only one low-carb meal a day.

But I am interested in getting the benefits of autophagy with my fasting. So I have a few questions about this:

1) What's the shortest fasting window to still trigger significant autophagy?
2) Do MCT oil, small amounts of heavy cream, coffee, bone both or sparkling water negatively impact autophagy?

Thanks guys!

5. Is it advisable for someone who is not overweight to engage in a fast?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

Fasting seems to be most helpful for obesity and diabetes control. But there are so many other benefits of fasting that are extremely crucial for all of us, not just those with weight and blood sugar issues. I am in the minority and feel like a minority because I am not overweight and I have pretty much have been the same weight forever. What kind of fasting if any would be advised for someone like me who is not dealing with excess weight but would like to get the other benefits of fasting such us immune system reset? It seems to me our ancestors, who were not overweight, were fasting without any major negative impact on their health. Is fasting just for overweight people?

Thank you for all you do,

Maria

6. Isn’t the half-pound of body fat you lose daily while fasting simply “calories out?”

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

Dr. Fung has thoroughly debunked the calories in, calories out model numerous times. But when he talks about the two compartment model, he notes that the fact that a pound of fat contains about 3500 calories of energy. So while fasting you can lose about half a pound of body fat a day. So my question to you is this: Wouldn’t that be considered "calories out?” If so, then is the “calories out” equation different from the “calories in” one?

Thanks,

Jonathan

7. Is it okay to use a fiber supplement while engaged in fasting?

Hey guys,

I greatly enjoyed reading The Complete Guide to Fasting and I love this new podcast. My question for you guys is regarding the use of fiber while fasting. What is your opinion about taking fiber-based supplement powders that are devoid of any sugar or artificial sweeteners? I typically take a combination of different kinds of fibers like inulin, acacia, glucomannan, psyllium, and flax. I did not see this addressed in your book.

Thank you for your input,

Kathy
