In this video, I’m going to tell you how to fast correctly for the most fasting benefits without any negative side effects. Fasting CAN help you live longer!

Fasting activates longevity genes, which reduce inflammation and help improve conditions like diabetes and prediabetes. They also protect the cells against disease.

Avoid making these 6 fasting mistakes that can destroy your results.

1. Fasting for too long
There are 2 types of fasting: intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting. Pay attention to how you feel when fasting. If you don't feel well, the fasting pattern is not right for you. You have to build up to a prolonged fast, and you don’t have to do OMAD to get fasting benefits.

2. Not getting enough dietary protein
The type and amount of protein in your diet are very important. Animal protein is the best! Red meat, eggs, lamb, fish, seafood, and organic pasture-raised chicken are the best sources of dietary protein.

When you do OMAD, your body becomes more efficient, and the requirement for protein decreases.

3. Avoiding cholesterol
You need cholesterol, especially when fasting. Cholesterol is needed to make hormones, tissues, bile acid, and more—so you need plenty of it! Egg yolks, liver, and shellfish are the best sources of cholesterol.

4. Forcing an intermittent fasting pattern that doesn’t work for you
Let your body tell you which fasting pattern will work for you. Pay attention to how you feel.

5. Too much exercise while fasting
For some people, exercising while fasting causes too much stress on the body. This can make it difficult to recover and cause muscle loss.

6. Not getting enough sleep can minimize the benefits of fasting.

      I’ve been watching all Dr. Berg’s videos since early 2019. I appreciate ALL his free healthy videos. They have helped me so much and I help others by sharing this information. However, my trust is NOT in Dr. Berg or any other worldly person! My trust is in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!!
      Romans 3:23 KJB.
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJB.
      Titus 2:13 KJB.

      There is only ONE way to Heaven! The Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is God. You must be born again. Read the book of John! Our apostle Paul gives us the gospel, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJB.

      My body will NOT fall asleep at night without cals in belly, which is fine in and of itself, but as a post menopausal woman, capitalizing on empty belly sleep, in an effort to lose weight, seems impossible for me. How can I get my bod to shut down to sleep?

  • @Zihenroy says:

    Been doing intermittent fasting with 6-8h window for almost a year. There are definitely big health benefits. Never tried prolonged fasting, afraid to lose muscle mass.

    • @miltonbates6425 says:

      Prolonged fasting greatly boosts HGH, so when you do go back to regular eating, your body will be operating at an increased rate for muscle synthesis.

    • @SpamMouse says:

      Please study the subject, any “fasting” will allow your body to use up the sugar-water stored in major muscles, your loose “size” not muscle. Why do you think body-builder drink sugar-water-protein powder after workout?

      Prolonged fasting does NOT burn muscle, it’s simply not true.

    “Fasting cleanses the soul, raises the mind, subjects one’s flesh to the spirit, renders the heart contrite and humble, scatters the clouds of concupiscence, quenches the fire of lust, and kindles the true light of chastity.”

    The best way to ruin fasting benefits is to have a big meal with HIGH CARBS, I used to do that, and believe that’s good to my health, 囧.

  • @Hrangue says:

    I’ve been doing a strict 23hr/day fast, one meal a day, water only (4.5 liters), no sugar, and exercising every other day. I have never had so much energy in my life and I’m losing weight. My issue is that I need better sleep.

  • @CocosTube says:

    This is absolutely true. I have some weeks that I can eat once a day and there are weeks that I’m hungry and have to eat twice a day. You listen to your body and focus on Whole Foods and then try your best to fast is the way

  • @vSwampFox says:

    There is definitely science behind fasting and relaxing. No less than 4 weeks, no more than 12 regarding strict dieting. The body will and does kick back against strict dieting over time. I’ve found that breaking a fasting routine every 6-10 weeks with a few days of x3 meals a day, and eating sweet treats or other simple carbs helps me work towards a goal, celebrate with less nutritional foods for a day or two, then back on the grind. This cycle works great for work and reward. The idea of strict eating for the rest of my life sounds daunting and the body will figure it out. Muscle loss will happen, BMR will get reduced, diet fatigue will happen.
