157: Fasting: All the benefits, without the suffering

By now you know that I’m a huge believer in the benefits of intermittent fasting. 

And if you’ve read my latest book, The Energy Paradox, you know that my newest protocol includes one of the EASIEST and most effective fasting techniques out there. 

Because unlike other fasting techniques, it’s designed with your WHOLE body in mind. And that means experiencing results that are going to LAST — and benefit your health for years down the line. 

And the best part? You WON’T need to restrict your calories or go on a “diet.” 

That’s right, ALL the benefits without ANY of the suffering. 

So stay tuned, because on this episode, I explain exactly how to master this technique and experience improvements in your energy, metabolic health, weight loss efforts, and so much more.

I also share the importance of breaking your fast the RIGHT way and my trick for getting supercharged results. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The so-called “harmless” eating habit that may be greatly increasing your risk of insulin resistance (2:00)
  • One of the most important factors when it comes to healthy eating habits (and it has nothing to do with WHAT you eat) 
  • How YOU can get all the benefits of fasting without feeling deprived, reducing your calories, or consuming less food (9:00)
  • How this common misconception is DRAINING your energy levels – and what you really need to do to feel active and focused (this may surprise you) (9:30)
  • My “digestion trick” to boost your workout performance and help you get supercharged results (11:00)
  • Why 80% of people struggle with most fasting techniques – and my “schedule trick” that makes fasting a piece of cake (plus, it works for just about anyone) (14:30)
  • How long you should REALLY go without eating to experience maximum benefits – and my trick for working your way up to the “sweet spot” (19:00)
  • Why I DO NOT recommend doing a long term water fast – and what to try instead (23:00) 
  • How to break a fast the RIGHT way – and experience INTENSE results (plus, some of my favorite recipes to try) (30:00)
  • My fasting technique for people struggling to give up eating first thing in the morning (35:00)
  • The secret to eliminating hunger pains while fasting (it’s easy and extremely beneficial for gut health) (44:00)
