Here’s what Jimmy and Megan talked about in Episode 2:

- HOT TOPIC to discuss: What Are The Primary Benefits Of Fasting?

1. Will intermittent fasting with less than 1,000 calories send my body into starvation mode? And will unsweetened coconut milk in my coffee technically break the fast?

I’ve been doing some intermittent fasting, mainly by skipping breakfast on weekdays, for the past couple of months. My concern, however, is that when I intermittent fast, and also eat no starches, I'm worried that this is similar to a crash diet, because I'm often eating maybe 800-900 calories a day because it's all vegetables and proteins. But eating these things make me full after dinner.

I'm 37 years old and and only 5'2" tall and I have maybe 20 pounds more I want to lose. I've spent years being told by experts warning me about not getting starvation mode. How do I know I'm not negatively affecting my metabolism by doing this fasting? By the way, when I do eat breakfast, I'm hungry all day, even when it's just a protein shake.

My second question after the metabolism concern is that although I skip breakfast, I do have a small cup of coffee with unsweetened coconut milk in it. Is this technically preventing me from getting the benefits of intermittent fasting or is that ok?

Thanks!

Tara

2. What’s the best strategy for breaking an extended fast to avoid problems?

Hey guys, I definitely appreciate all your work on The Complete Guide To Fasting. I have done intermittent fasting in the past but I'm concerned about coming off of my two to three day extended fast. Other than using a small snack before a meal coming off too fast, are there any other issues that I should be aware of? Thanks again for this awesome book and podcast.

James

3. What can I do about diarrhea when I attempt an extended fast? What’s causing this to happen?

I've been very interested in doing an extended fast, but at approximately the 72-hour mark I get frequent diarrhea. I'm looking for specific information that can help with my situation. This doesn't seem to be a topic many people want to discuss. Will this go away and get better at some point? Is there such a thing as too much water? Is there anything I can do to control it? Working in an office setting, this feels like a disaster waiting to happen and has always stopped me from progressing further in an extended fast. I want to know how other people handle it.

4. Why did my blood sugar levels skyrocket when I engaged in fasting for a few days?

Thank you for this new Fasting Talk podcast. I am an avid listener to The Livin’ La Vida Low Carb Show and Keto Talk, so this new show will be added to my regular podcasting playlist. I have been eating low-carb for about a year now and have really seen an improvement in my blood tests. I haven't really tracked blood glucose consistently during the year but it has always been below 100. 

Recently I tried a couple of extended fasts (60 and 96 hours) about three weeks apart.  My goal was to get deeper into ketosis as I have not been successful in maintaining ketosis with a carb level of 30 grams per day.  I know it is probably my protein intake keeping me out of ketosis where I am consuming around 150 grams per day. I thought the fasts would help me

Here’s what Jimmy, Dr. Fung, and Megan talked about in Episode 1:

- Hear each of your new cohosts share their fasting stories and why they decided to start this podcast

1. How do you prevent ghrelin being stimulated which could ostensibly slow your metabolism during a fast?

I’m excited about your new podcast all about fasting.  I have a question for you that I haven’t heard addressed anywhere. How do you avoid stimulating ghrelin that will slow your metabolism while fasting?

Thanks for your work,

Karen

2. Is fasting contraindicated if you have had your gallbladder removed?

Hey guys,

What about fasting when you have had your gallbladder removed? I've heard this stresses the liver the Whole30 book says fasting is not recommend for people without a gallbladder. I'm curious if that's true or if there is a difference between intermittent and extended fasting. I've tried to find some research about this online but no good answers have come up. I asked my gallbladder doctor about this, he had no options for me either. Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Leah

3. Why does the notion that fasting is not good for women continue to linger?

Hey Dr. Fung,

I’ve heard several prominent health experts like Mark Sisson and others online who say women should probably not fast. I don’t understand why this idea of fasting being detrimental to women is so commonplace because I’ve seen nothing but success using it. I’m 48 years old and a mom of three who has used a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet with regular exercise and yoga to be healthy. But my weight and fasting blood glucose levels had been going up. That’s when fasting changed all of that for me enabling me to lower my weight, reduce my waist size, and lowering my blood sugar, insulin, and A1c levels. Why is there such negativity about fasting for women promoted so heavily especially in the Paleo community?

Thanks for your books and great work!
