The Fasting Effect

Healthy Aging

As you age, your cells slow down and become inefficient. But prolonged fasting triggers “autophagy”, your cells’ self-cleaning and rejuvenation process, helping them renew themselves and act like younger cells. This can enable you to live a better, fuller life throughout your years.

Supports Metabolic Health

Maintain healthy levels of metabolic balance. Transform your lifestyle & eating habits.

What Happens to Your Body while Fasting?

Prolonged fasts unlock the deepest level of fasting. It triggers your body’s natural way of cleaning house. Your cells clean and recycle old and damaged parts, resulting in a profound benefit: cell rejuvenation. Your cells renew themselves and act like younger cells.

Enter Fasting State:

Your body transitions into a fasting state & fat burning mode.

Fat Burning & Ketogenesis:

Fat burning ramps up, contributing to the start of ketogenesis (ketone production). By the end of Day 2, ketosis may occur.

Autophagy / Cell Recycling State:

Cell optimization begins. Fat burning and ketone production / utilization continues.

Cell Rejuvenation:

Cell recycling and renewal and fat burning continues.

Renewal & Change:

Cell renewal and change continues after you complete the fast

The practice of fasting involves calorie restriction.

Do not start a fast if:

• During this period of COVID-19, if you are over 65 years of age, or are in a high-risk category.

• If you have a diagnosis of or are on a prescription for diabetes (type 1 or type 2), cancer, or congestive heart failure, or you have a history of fainting, fast only with the approval and supervision of a healthcare practitioner.

• If you have a fever, cough, diarrhea, signs of an active infection, or are at risk for a repetitive infection.

• If you have a known, diagnosed, or suspected eating disorder.
