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!

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.

Most sincerely,

Airia (aka Keto Sister)

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

Here’s what Jimmy, Megan, and Angel talked about in Episode 12:

- How can I maintain the lower blood pressure numbers from extended fasting when the fast is over?
 
Hi Jimmy and Megan,
 
Fasting topics almost always focus on obesity and diabetes.  I'd like to hear you guys discuss how you can lower blood pressure with extended fasting. I've done four extended supervised water fasts and each time I've been able to get great blood pressure numbers without the need for medication. Unfortunately, over time, my high blood pressure comes back probably because I haven't cleaned up my diet. I would love to hear more about how to keep the numbers down.
 
Thanks,

HOT TOPIC:  Extended Fasting Is Dangerous For Your Health
 
1. How can I do longer fasts when i have to cook for my family of five on a nightly basis?
 
Hi Jimmy and Megan,
 
I love this new podcast! The longest I have ever gone during a fast is 24 hours, but I would like to go longer in fasting. I have PCOS, insulin resistance, and fibromyalgia. My problem is I have a family of 5 and I cook for them most evenings and this can trigger me to want to eat.  As you can probably guess, my family eats a clean version of the SAD diet and I am the only one who eats keto in the house.  How do I make a longer fast work in this context?  Would meal prepping ahead of time help in these situations? I would like to fast for 36 hours and then try to do longer fasts.
 
Thank you for your insights,
 
Georgette
 
2. Can fasting help with the exhaustion phase of adrenal fatigue? Is IF or extended fasting better for dealing with this?
 
Can you please explain how fasting can help with adrenal fatigue?  keep reading conflicting information on this subject and I am unsure whether fasting is right for me. I am currently in the "exhaustion" phase of adrenal fatigue, so my question for you is whether I need to get the adrenal fatigue under control first before fasting or will fasting help me with this condition? And what kind of fast would you recommend? Is intermittent or extended fasting better for dealing with the exhaustion phase of adrenal fatigue?
 
Thanks in advance,

3. Would drinking aloe vera juice on a fasting day break my fast?
 
Hello Jimmy and Megan,
 
Thank you so much for creating Fasting Talk. I have read your book The Complete Guide to Fasting and started alternate day fasting. So far, I’ve seen some great benefits doing this, including feeling fantastic, a sharp mind and focus while working, and weight loss. I have one question for you about fasting days—can I drink my aloe vera juice in the morning while fasting? Would this break the fasting period?
 
Thanks for your help,

4. Is it okay to still chew nicotine gum while fasting?
 
Hi Jimmy and Megan,
 
I got your fasting book and have been doing a 16:8 fast on a regular basis. This might be a strange question, but can I chew nicotine gum when I am fasting?
 
Much regards,
 
David
 
5. How do you prevent the loss of electrolytes and minerals when you are extended fasting?
 
Hi Jimmy,
 
I keep hearing you talking about fasting, fasting, fasting all the time. But if you fast with zero food for 7 days, for example, how do you not lose electrolytes and minerals? Don’t you need to drink more than just water to keep from becoming sick? I am a little confused about all this.
 
Thanks for your help,

SPECIAL GUEST PATIENT: Angel Ramos (aka Mr. Megan Ramos!)

I grew up in Orlando and ate a typical diet throughout the first 25 years of my life. I did cut out soda/pop in my teens and noticed that I lost some weight without any change to my physical activity but I was still overweight with a poor body composition. I stayed up late, ate crap junk food and drank in university and grad school. My weight peaked while on holiday in Germany as a graduation trip, 235 pounds at 6'2". I noticed new stretch marks, a marked drop in my energy levels and my clothes were tight! I was starting to get concerned about my future health and what could happen given my family medical history of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, and Alzheimer's.

I'm a scientist and I enjoy researching, so I went to work. With the limited nutritional knowledge I had and novice workout experience, I started reading various sources online. There are some great fitness subreddits that really helped me to understand what I needed to do. I started tracking my calories, lowered my fat intake, upped the protein and began a weight training and cardio regiment. After about 9 months of exercise and diet, my weight was about 220 pounds and I was significantly stronger in the gym, but I still had plenty of fat.

This is where my story changes, I met Megan Christie (Ramos). After we had been dating for a few months, treating every trip to see each other as a vacation and eating junk, Megan explained the IDM program to me in detail and I was blown away. I began to see that by eating tons of processed/refined carbohydrates, I was only hurting myself.

I also began fasting when I started eating an LCHF diet. Our cavemen ancestors certainly didn't get lucky and have a feast every day, so why do I need 3 square meals a day. I started out doing 24-hour fasts from dinner to dinner and was quickly surprised that it was much easier than I thought. After about a week, my body wasn't angry at me if at 1 pm I haven't eaten anything. I began to see weight fall off over the course of a few months. I had to buy almost an entirely new wardrobe because none of my clothes fit.

I'm proud to say that I've lost 70 pounds and now weigh about 165 pounds.

Here’s what Jimmy, Megan, and Angel talked about in Episode 11:

1. Can anyone doing an intermittent or alternate day fast enjoy a glass or two of wine?

Hello Jimmy and Megan,

I watched Dr. Jason Fung's fantastic presentation to colleagues on YouTube where he shared about a patient who managed to still enjoy a couple glasses of wine while fasting and had amazing success. I love the idea of flexibility while fasting, but at what point does a patient impede or derail their success with something like a glass or two of wine? Was he the exception or is wine with dinner allowed to be incorporated into a successful intermittent fasting or alternate daily fasting program if you track the carbs in them?

Thank you for this show, I am really enjoying it!

Maryann

KEY QUOTE: “Take a little bit of fat for the first few days of a fast. The extra fat takes extra energy to burn and warms you up.” – Megan Ramos

2. How do I deal with cold extremities that come when I start extended fasting?

Hey guys,

I’m a 68-year old woman who has had a total hysterectomy, had my gallbladder removed in my early twenties, and am hypothyroid taking Synthroid. I do quite well fasting from 4-6 days. My question is what happens to me beginning on the first day of an extended fast—my hands and feet become extremely cold. It can't be from a lack of salt because this starts to happen right away in Day 1 of fasting. I tried consuming some homemade bone broth with salt, but it hasn’t helped.

Any help would be appreciated,

Ruth

3. Is there any reason not to fast if you are attempting to get pregnant?

Hey guys! Love The Complete Guide To Fasting and the Fasting Talk podcast. I've been doing 24-hour fasts, four days a week for weight loss. I've lost 10 pounds and have about 10 more to go. My boyfriend and I are trying to get pregnant and I was wondering if engaging in fasting while trying to get pregnant is safe.

Thanks for your insights!

4. How do you control the increase in cortisol that comes from fasting from being a detriment to weight loss?

Hi guys,

How do you make sure your fasting routine isn’t being a stress on your body so that you do not have an increase in cortisol which would shut down weight loss?

Thanks,

Mary

5. Will I experience the energy and performance benefits of exercise while fasting?

I run-bike-swim several miles a week. I plan on fasting on Mondays and Thursdays (for 36 hours) and wonder if I will have the energy I need to get through the workouts?

Alan

AND

Love your new podcast. My question is about fasting and exercise. I currently practice intermittent fasting but wanted to try an extended fast. I lift weights four days a week and cycle around 80 miles as well. I wanted to know what effect fasting would have on my performance and weight loss/muscle gain? Would long lasting fasts be effective for someone like me?

Regards,

Cesare

Here’s what Jimmy and Megan talked about in Episode 10:

LISTENER TESTIMONIAL:

Hey guys,

After devouring everything I could on Dr. Jason Fung, along with your books, I decided to contact his Intensive Dietary Management clinic to become a client. I tried doing a 24-hour fast on my own and came to the realization I needed support. I’m back to doing 16:8 IF every day, but definitely needed help with doing longer fasts. When I am eating, it’s ketogenic. I can’t begin to tell you how excited, thrilled, and optimistic I feel about working with IDM. Just knowing there is a solution to my weight problem makes me feel like I have finally found my Holy Grail because NOTHING has worked for me.

Even eating low-carb, high-fat was not enough to get me into fat-burning mode. I actually needed to get and keep my insulin low for a longer period of time than 12 hours, which is what I had not been doing. All of us who have struggled with our weight and health issues and have done numerous programs that have failed us, who have lived with despair and suffered with this horrible affliction, know how painful this all is. Now, to have an answer, a healthy, doable answer, is a miracle.

I just had to share with you my absolute joy about this discovery. Thank you for The Complete Guide To Fasting. It has become my new Bible for healthy living offering hope, help, guidance, and support to reach ALL my health goals in 2017.

With heartfelt gratitude and thanks!

– HOT TOPIC: How do you get over your fear of fasting?

1. Are there special fasting considerations for people with hypothyroidism?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

I've read a lot about how fasting affects various health issues, but I haven't seen anything on thyroid disease, specifically hypothyroidism (Hashimoto’s). Do you have clients in the IDM program with this and is there anything different you do with them?

Thanks so much!

KEY QUOTE: “Let the positive health benefits motivate you to conquer your fear of fasting." – Jimmy Moore

2. Is it necessary to eat low-carb, high-fat on non-fasting days to maintain the benefits of alternate day fasting?

Hi Jimmy and Megan,

I have lost weight successfully using alternate day fasting. I am 5'10" tall and currently weight 163 with a BMI of 23.4 and a 34" waist. On my fasting days, I eat from 0-500 calories and I eat LCHF on my non-fasting days. So what would happen if I did not eat LCHF on my non-fasting days? Would I still see results just at a slower pace or would that negate the benefits I am seeing?

Thanks!

Tommy

3. If you only eat one meal a day for a 24-hour fast, how do you get adequate calories to prevent metabolic slowdown?

Hey Jimmy and Megan,

Okay, now I am confused. On a recent episode of Fasting Talk, I heard Megan says it is detrimental to your health to not get enough calories in on your feeding days. She noted that patients who only eat 500-800 calories a day are the hardest ones to help because their metabolism has been slowed down for so long. But then in last week’s episode from Low Carb Breckenridge with Dr. Fung answering questions, he said it’s okay to eat one meal a day when you intermittent fast and that he doesn’t really care about how many calories you get in that meal. There’s no way I could get over 1,000 calories in one meal. So if you are doing this six days a week then aren’t you getting to that place where Megan says it is detrimental with the low calorie intake? Please help me with this.

4. Do I need to do extended fasting to help reduce eczema symptoms or can keto/IF give me relief from this?

Hello Jimmy and Megan,

Thank you so much for the information you are providing the public. You make my job as a Mind-Body Nutrition Coach easier, knowing I am providing quality, relevant information for myself and my clients. My question for you guys is about eczema. From what I’ve read, it seems fasting is beneficial, but more so for doing an extended fast of more than three days. I'm not sure I want to fast for that long since I don't have any weight to lose. I'm 5'3", 123 pounds, 52 years old and very active with trail running 2x/week, Crossfit 2x/week and ballroom dancing 2-3 times per week. Would shorter or intermittent fasting reduce the eczema symptoms or do I need to suck it up and do an extended fast of a few days to get the most benefits? Or would a ketogenic diet alone help with this?

Thank you for all you do!

5. Are there any differences in the fasting experience consuming water vs. dry fasting?

Hello Jimmy and Megan,

I've read your book on fasting and love this podcast. I have been doing 7-day fasts and intermittent fasts on a regular basis. While reading your book, I saw that fasting is a practice followed by numerous religious traditions. But one element of several of these traditions, such as Ramadan, that I did not see mentioned in your book or discussed on your show is the impact of not drinking anything during the daytime of these religious fasting periods. Fasting means abstaining from food and drink from dawn to dusk. All the discussions of fasting assumes you are consuming water. But what about these dry fasts during the daytime? Is this something different about fasting with liquids vs. fasting without them?

Thank you,

Thane

Here are the audience questions Jimmy and Dr. Fung answer in Episode 9:

Dr. Fung's thoughts on Study from Valter Longo: Fasting-Mimicking Diet Reverses Diabetes in Mice 

1. Mike: I notice that when I'm fasting I have less tolerance for cold. Is there an issue with reducing free T-3 levels when fasting?

2. Dave: Is there a metabolic change that occurs when fasting while using exogenous ketones or bone broth compared to a pure water fast?

3. Christie: I just finished an 11 day fast. During the first few days, I wasn't drinking a lot and I had a lot of heartburn and burping. Is this normal?

4. Heather: Is it true that type 1 diabetics have an autoimmune response that will attack beta cells, even after they have been regenerated through fasting?

5. Dr. Eric Westman: How do you define intermittent fasting?

6. Ruth: I've never fasted past 42 hours. Will fasting longer help to lower fasting blood sugar?

7. Kelly: Should I start eating a ketogenic diet before trying to fast so that I will already be keto adapted?

KEY QUOTE: “At the end of the day it's all about sustainability, whatever you can do over the long term.” –  Jimmy Moore

8. Misha: What advice would you give someone about fasting while treating cancer?

9. Gloria: My husband is 58 and mostly healthy. After losing weight from intermittent fasting he has started adding back a little weight. What can we do?
