Dave Asprey, "Father of Biohacking" and founder of Bulletproof and New York Times bestselling author is here today to give us the low-down on how fasting changes the brain and body.
There’s a lot of energy and exciting research in the fasting/longevity space, but what about the brain? How do the metabolic, cellular, and circadian mechanisms associated with fasting have direct and indirect influences on the brain, improving cognitive functioning? You’re in luck health optimizers: we discuss all of that and more, including:
- The how, what, when, and why of intermittent fasting
- How the food industry has altered natural eating behaviors
- The belief systems associated with fasting
- How intermittent fasting extends healthspan through circadian autophagy
- The scientific link between body temperature, fasting and longevity
When we stop eating after the sun goes down, magic happens. - Dave Asprey
Forget everything you think you know about the ancient practice of fasting and let Dave take you on a journey through cutting-edge science to examine how to upgrade your fasting game beyond calorie restriction. Listen in now.
