51: How to do a 36 hour fast and the benefits with Elaina and Kate

Season #3 Episode #51

What constitutes a fast?

  • Water or Air, No calories (black coffee and tea okay but water is best)
  • Green Juice- for newer fasters you can have a green juice (no apple) and black coffee or tea. Or use this as a time to not have coffee, give adrenals a break. No stimulants will help with hunger.

 

We Discussed

 

The Benefits of Fasting

  • What we both experience anecdotally
    • More mental clarity
    • Pure joy and zest for life
    • Energy
  • When you fast, some of your fat gets turned into ketone bodies that appear to reactivate these genes, leading to lowered inflammation and stress resistance in the brain
  • NAD+ rises without food, creating new mitochondria (the power-generating factories of your cells (NAD is a coenzyme found in the body and helps your body function better on a molecular level, helps with DNA repair, mitochondrial function (protect brain cells) and possibly safeguard you from future diseases) 
  • Ketones, also produced during fasting, turn on genes related to antioxidant processes and damage repair.
  • When you are fasting, ketone bodies generated by your liver partly replace glucose as fuel for your brain as well as other organs. This ketone usage by your brain is one of the reasons that fasting is often claimed to promote mental clarity and positive mood 
  • ketones produce less inflammatory products as they are being metabolized than does glucose, and they can even kick-start production of the brain growth factor BDNF! Ketones have also been shown to reduce cellular damage and cell death in neurons and can also reduce inflammation in other cell types
  • Within 24 hours, your cells are recycling old cells and breaking down misfolded proteins linked to Alzheimer’s and other diseases, called autophagy
  • Autophagy is an important process for cellular and tissue rejuvenation – it removes damaged cellular 

Other

  • Balance blood sugar (lowering insulin, further activating autophagy and reducing inflammation)
  • Increase IGF1
  • Spiritual reset
  • Increased intuition
  • Heightens all senses
  • Hormone and Temperature regulation
