Key Ideas

Approaches to intermittent fasting

  • Skipped meals - when you skip over a meal to induce extra time of fasting. 
  • Eating windows - this condenses your entire macronutrient intake between a 4 and 7-hour window. The rest of the time you are in a fasting state.
  • 24-48 hour cleanse - where you go into extended fasting periods and do not eat for 1-2 days.

Autophagy definition and benefits

The process by which the cell devours itself.

  • Non-essential parts like damaged proteins are recycled and invading microorganisms and toxic compounds are removed. 
  • Autophagy plays an important role in stopping the aging process, reversing disease, and preventing cancer, but it doesn’t happen all the time. 
  • Autophagic processes can be initiated by fasting, protein restriction and carbohydrate restriction.

Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

  • Mental Clarity. Once your body is keto-adapted, your brain can effectively run on ketones, which are derived from the fat breakdown in the liver.
  • Fitness while fasting. The benefits include higher metabolic adaptations, improved muscle synthesis and improved response to post-workout meals.
  • Intermittent Fasting and Muscle. Intermittent fasting is beneficial for muscle mass while fat mass decrease significantly.
  • Autophagy. The fasting process will activate autophagy in your cells.
  • It will increase your ketones quicker than if you were just eating a standard ketogenic diet.
  • Intermittent Fasting and Cancer. Fasting for 2 days to a week can have a protective effect on the cells in the body while they are undergoing intense bouts of toxicity.

The function of ketones

Ketones aren’t just a form of energy, they’re powerful signaling molecules. They regulate the expression of genes and dampen inflammatory processes.
Your body is always producing a very low level of ketones, irrespective of your diet. You start producing more of them when following a diet that’s high in fat and low in carbs.

Getting in ketosis
  • The stricter you restrict carbs (or total calories), the quicker you will be in ketosis.
  • Restricting your carb intake to 20g per day is a good heuristic (loose rule) for entering ketosis. It will generally get you into ketosis within a few days.
  • Fasting gets you into ketosis very quickly.
