Here’s what Jimmy, Megan, and Hayley talked about in Episode 17:

KEY QUOTE: "A bad night of sleep or a stressful day can cause radical shifts in your fasting insulin levels so we look for more longterm changes and trends." – Megan Ramos HOT TOPIC: What are the signs a patient can look for that indicate there is healing happening to their insulin resistance?   Hey Jimmy and Megan,   I just finished up my first extended fast at 67 hours thanks to the information that you and Megan share on your awesome podcast.  I’m down 3 pounds, blood sugar 63, blood ketones 6.6. I had improved blood pressure, amazing mental clarity and even ran my fastest 5K ever. Wow! I’m going to keep extended fasting as part of my routine along with regular intermittent fasting. I have a question for you guys that I haven’t heard addressed yet. Other than measuring changes in blood glucose and ketone levels, how would someone know they are improving their insulin resistance? Are there ways you quantify this in your patients at IDM?

 

Thanks so much for all that you do.  I am so very grateful that I found you guys!

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship   1. What are the hormone improvements and adaptations that take place doing shorter fasts of 24-36 hours?   Dear Jimmy and Megan,   I have read Keto Clarity, The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting, so thanks for all these great resources. In The Obesity Code, Dr. Fung writes about a lot of adaptations that happen during fasting including a rise in epinephrine. But according to the book, those adaptations do not kick in until around Day 3 or 4 of extended fasting. So what I want to know is what hormonal improvements or adaptations take place during an intermittent or alternate day fasting period of 24-36 hours?   Keep up the great work!  I’ve been intermittent fasting for 10 weeks and I’m down 20 pounds!   Thanks,   Ari GIVE YOUR ELECTROLYTES A SUGAR-FREE BOOST

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship   2. Why am I not getting the same benefits from fasting now that had I previously when I fasted? What can I do about it?   Hey Jimmy and Megan,   Many years ago, I would regularly fast twice weekly for 24 hours at a time. I experienced improved energy, weight loss, improved body composition, and lower inflammation levels. I then fell off the wagon for a few years with changes in employment and other life circumstances. But in recent months I have started fasting again and follow a ketogenic diet when I’m feasting. But I’ve noticed since coming back to fasting again that the amazing benefits that I had previously aren’t happening. Do you have any recommendations for someone like me who has seen the positive impact of fasting before and is not seeing it now? Why is this happening?   Thanks so much for answering my question. I am loving the new podcast…it's so motivating!   Warm regards,   Christine from Australia KEY QUOTE: "Even if you're eating a low-carb ketogenic diet, it's still a good idea to give your pancreas a break every now and then." – Jimmy Moore   3. Which fasting protocol is best for weight loss? How do you lose weight doing IF? How long before you burn stored body fat while extended fasting?   Dear Jimmy and Megan,   Thank you for creating this podcast on fasting. My question for you is about weight loss. What is the best fasting strategy for losing weight? I’ve heard that when you fast, it takes about 24-36 hours for your glycogen stores in the liver to become completely depleted and then you begin to burn your own stored body fat for energy. If that's true, then intermittent fasting would seemingly not work for losing weight because after about 16-20 hours of IF you start eating again. So how is it possible to lose weight on IF? Thus, it seems that extended fasting would be better than IF for the purposes of weight loss. Am I right? And how long does it take before you start losing stored body fat during fasting and not just water weight?   Thank you so much. I just listened to your audiobook for The Complete Guide To Fasting. Keep up the great work!   Jorge GET A $39 BOTTLE OF OLIVE OIL FOR JUST A BUCK

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship   4. What are the signs of electrolyte imbalance during a fast and what are your best tips for replenishing these electrolytes on a water-only extended fast?   Hi Jimmy and Megan,

 

I have engaged in extended water fasting twice—one 5-day fast and one 8-day fast. Interestingly, I experienced brain fog and tiredness throughout these fasts and I’m thinking I might be having issues with keeping my electrolytes in balance. So what are your very best tips for replenishing electrolytes during an extended water fast? And what are the signs to look for that electrolytes are out of whack?

 

I’m planning on doing an even longer fast the next time and your advice is appreciated. I took a multivitamin, fish oil, lite salt (for the sodium and potassium), and Himalayan rock sea salt. Thank you for your help!

 

Adam   5. Why don’t you recommend coffee enemas during an extended fasting for the added cleansing benefits it provides?   Hey guys,   Why don't you recommend people to use enemas during their fasting? Coffee enemas are highly recommended by people like Dr. Nicholas Gonzales and others for cancer, cleansing the liver, and more?   Great show!   Diana JIMMY AND DR.

Mennesker og medier: Satire eller virkelighed? 2017-04-28  

En omstridt Venstrepolitiker fik for nylig løfte om at få lagt en historie ned og mulighed for at få klippet spørgsmål ud i Radio24syv. I hvert fald ifølge satireprogrammet "Den Korte Radioavis", som derefter fik Weekendavisen til at kalde radioens interview for "mageligt mikrofonholderi". Men hvad er satire? Hvad er virkelighed? Og hvordan kunne den populære radiofigur "Kirsten Birgit Schøitz Kretz Hørsholm" fortælle detaljeret, hvad en journalist havde aftalt med Venstrepolitikeren? Debat med Klaus Wivel, redaktionschef på Weekendavisen, og Jørgen Ramskov, chefredaktør og direktør, Radio24syv. Klimaet går amok i DR: I en hel uge har tv-programmer, radioudsendelser og netsider i DR haft fokus på klimaforandringer. Men når ugen er omme, rykker er de ofte besværlige og problemfyldte historier om smeltende isbjerge, tørkeramte kaffebønder og oversvømmede floddeltaer med stor sandsynlighed igen ned på den daglige nyhedsdagsorden. Mediedirektør Henriette Marienlund fortæller, hvordan DR vil undgå, at temaugen ender som et publicistisk figenblad, hvor seere, lyttere og netbrugere stopfodres med uoverskuelige problemer. Videnskab til folket: Med finale i det årlige videnskapløb bliver der sat punktum for årets Ph.d.-cup lørdag i Koncerthuset i DR Byen. De bedste formidlere bliver belønnet, for hvis forskere skal blive hørt og skaffe sig bevillinger, skal de også være gode til at få deres videnskab ud over rampen. Og ofte må de acceptere, at nuancer og forbehold forsvinder, når forskningen høvles igennem i det journalistiske maskinrum. Twin Peaks vender tilbage: Efter 25 års pause er kultserien med blandt andre Special Agent Dale Cooper og hans "damn fine cup of coffee" tilbage. Noget af ventetiden frem mod verdenspremieren 21. maj bruger Twin Peaks-fans i biograferne, som for tiden viser den dansk-amerikanske dokumentarfilm "The Art Life" om tv-seriens instruktør David Lynch. Vært og producent: Kurt Strand.

New evidence for antimatter in space - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 33  

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) * New evidence for antimatter in space Scientists may have detected particles of antimatter helium in low Earth orbit. The early hints were spotted in data on cosmic ray observations undertaken by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station. If confirmed the antimatter helium could point to islands of antimatter spread across the universe. *New details on how the late heavy bombardment changed the solar system forever A new study of ancient Martian impact craters has provided strong evidence that the late heavy bombardment occurred between 4.1 and 3.8 billion years ago. The findings show a 400 million year lull in asteroid impacts striking the surface of the red planet. *A jet stream discovered in Earth’s core. Scientists have discovered a jet stream churning deep in Earth’s molten outer core. Unlike the more conventional atmospheric jet streams associated with weather pattern generated high altitude winds – this newly discovered jet stream is located some three thousand kilometres below the Earth’s surface. *China launches its heaviest ever payload into space China has launched its heaviest ever payload into orbit. The new Long March 7 heavy lift rocket blasted off from the Wenchang spaceport on Hainan Island in the South China Sea, carrying the 13 tonne Tianzhou -1 resupply mission to Beijing’s Tiangong-2 orbiting science module.

Important If True 11: The Purity of a Child's Boredom  

Learning something new can feel like someone flipped on a light switch in your mind. If that person in your mind could flip the switch off and on whenever they wanted, controlling which things you remember and which you forget, we hope you’d hold onto these thoughts: Why is the Genie from Aladdin afraid of commitment? Did a fourth grader create the world of Banjo-Kazooie, and what grade did he get for it? And, did I just get here, or is that guy with the light switch controlling my brain again?

The Road to Sparta: How Dean Karnazes Relived The Ancient Battle & Epic Run That Inspired The World's Greatest Footrace  

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/roadtosparta In 490 BCE, some masochistic Greek guy named Pheidippides ran for 36 hours straight from Athens to Sparta to seek help in defending Athens from a Persian invasion in the Battle of Marathon. In doing so, he saved the development of Western civilization and inspired the birth of the marathon as we know it. Even now, some 2,500 years later, that run stands enduringly as one of greatest physical accomplishments in the history of mankind. Dean Karnazes, my guest on today's podcast, came up with the crazy idea of honoring Pheidippides (and Dean's own Greek heritage) by recreating this entire ancient journey in modern times. During his run, Karnazes even abstained from contemporary endurance nutrition like sports drinks and energy gels and only ate what was available in 490 BCE, such as figs, olives, cured meats and even some stuff called "mastic gum". Then he wrote about the whole experience is his new book "The Road to Sparta: Reliving the Ancient Battle and Epic Run That Inspired the World's Greatest Footrace". The new book is intriguing, comical, sometimes tear-jerking, and certainly thought-provoking and entertaining, and Dean is probably even more intriguing. Get a load of this guy... TIME magazine named Dean one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World.” Men’s Fitness hailed him as one of the fittest men on the planet. Stan Lee called him, “Super Human.” He's an acclaimed endurance athlete and NY Times bestselling author, who has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments, he has run 350 continuous miles, foregoing sleep for three nights. He’s run across the Sahara Desert in 120-degree temperatures, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole in negative 40 degrees. On ten different occasions he’s run a 200-mile relay race solo, racing alongside teams of twelve. He has swum the San Francisco Bay, scaled mountains, bike raced for 24-hours straight, and surfed the gigantic waves off the coast of Hawaii & California. His long list of competitive achievements include winning the world’s toughest footrace, the Badwater Ultramarathon, running 135 miles nonstop across Death Valley during the middle of summer. He has raced and competed on all seven continents of the planet, twice over. In 2006 he accomplished the seemingly impossible by running 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days, finishing with the NYC Marathon, which he ran in three hours flat! In 2011 Dean ran 3,000-miles from the coast of California to New York City, averaging 40 to 50-miles per day (one day covering more than 70!). Along the way he stopped at schools to speak to students about the importance of exercise and healthy eating. When passing through Washington DC, he was invited to run through the White House to meet with First Lady Michelle Obama and be honored for his tireless commitment to helping this country get back in shape. Dean and his incredible adventures have been featured on The Today Show, 60 Minutes, The Late Show with David Letterman, CBS News, CNN, ESPN, The Howard Stern Show, NPR’s Morning Edition, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the BBC, and many others. He has appeared on the cover of Runner’s World, Outside, and Wired magazine’s, and has been featured in TIME, Newsweek, People, GQ, The New York Times, USA TODAY, The Washington Post, Men’s Journal, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, and the London Telegraph, to mention a few. Dean is the winner of an ESPN ESPY and a 3-time recipient of Competitor magazines Endurance Athlete of the Year award. Dean has also raised millions of dollars for charity and was awarded the prestigious Community Leadership Award by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports.
