    • Entrepreneurship

Have you ever wondered if there's a simple, effective way to boost your well-being, increase energy levels, and promote sustainable weight loss? The answer may lie in the age-old practice of fasting.

In my Fitness Friday episode, I dive deep into the science behind fasting and explore how different fasting durations can provide a wide array of health benefits. Expert Dr. Mindy Pelz shares a fascinating insight: fasting for just 17 hours can trigger a process called autophagy, where your cells start to clean out toxins and repair themselves.

From busting common fasting myths to providing practical strategies for incorporating fasting into your lifestyle, this podcast is a must-listen for anyone interested in optimizing their health.

Dr. Mindy Pelz is the Founder of Reset Academy, Best Selling Author, and Fasting Enthusiast.

What we discuss: 

Intermittent fasting and its initial effects on weight loss 

Changes in energy levels and body composition after starting intermittent fasting 

The role of diet vs. exercise in weight loss 

Calorie restriction vs. fasting and the role of insulin in weight gain

Comparing Weight Watchers to fasting and the importance of accountability and community 

The benefits of different fasting durations (13-15 hours, 17 hours) 

The benefits of longer fasting durations (24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours) 

Addressing the myth of fasting putting the body into starvation mode 

Tips for easing into intermittent fasting 

The role of mitochondria in health and the benefits of becoming fat-adapted through fasting
