135: Dave Asprey reveals: The IDEAL time to eat

by | Jan 25, 2021 | 1 comment

It’s one of the best ways to lose weight, increase your energy, and reduce inflammation.

So why isn’t everyone doing it?

Because the technique I’m talking about is fasting.

Well, my guest today says almost everything you’ve heard about fasting is all WRONG. 

Not only that, but he says there’s actually a better way to fast — and it doesn’t mean suffering or giving up all your favorite foods.

Today, I’m joined by my friend and biohacker extraordinaire Dave Asprey, and he’s got a brand new book out called Fast This Way: Burn Fat, Heal Inflammation, and Eat Like the High-Performing Human You Were Meant to Be.

We’re going to chat about the powerful benefits of fasting, the foods you can eat while you fast, and the “Kryptonite” foods you MUST avoid. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The 2 types of food you CAN eat while you fast (yes, you can EAT on a fast) (3:15)
  • Why the time you eat breakfast is more important than what you eat (5:25)
  • Why you’re STILL hungry after breakfast (and the 1 food you should always avoid at dinner) (6:20)
  • The 2 signals you NEED to give your body to sleep soundly and fast successfully (9:30)
  • How fasting can actually make you feel younger (12:50)
  • Why skipping THIS is maybe better for you than running for an hour every day! (18:15)
  • The BEST food to eat for controlling your cravings (20:30)
  • What to drink in the morning to DOUBLE your body’s production of energy-producing ketones (23:15)
  • Why higher ketone levels are actually a BAD thing (29:00)
  • The best foods to eat when you break your fast (and the 5 types of foods you should always avoid) (34:00)
  • My favorite nut (and why you should eat more of them) (35:30)
