Fasting has been used for centuries to heal the body and prevent disease.
It can help you live a longer, healthier life.
Prolonged fasting awakens the body’s built-in ability to heal itself from chronic disease and reverses many age-related illnesses in a natural way.
Fasting helps optimize your body’s innate, built-in capacity to heal itself.
It does this in part by flipping the switch on your cells to anti-age mode by promoting autophagy and cellular regeneration.
What is autophagy?
Autophagy is your body’s natural process of cellular repair and cleaning. It’s like a cellular reboot that helps your cells function more effectively. As you age, your cells collect inflammatory debris in the form of proteins and other damaged material. Over time, if this “waste” isn’t removed, your body starts to show signs of disease and other negative effects of aging.
Autophagy is your cells’ “self-cleaning” function.
We turn on our body’s autophagy function when we fast for prolonged periods of time.
Sounds amazing, right?
But, here’s the thing. There’s a catch to all of this fasting, self-healing magic…
Not eating is hard.
And that’s where Fasting + Food can help.
Because as Dietitians, we know food.
We created a 4-day fasting program that allows you to eat delicious, homemade food — and still get all of the amazing benefits of fasting. While it may seem counter-intuitive to fast and eat food at the same time, with the right calorie level and the right macro-nutrient mix, it IS possible to enter a state of metabolic ketosis that closely resembles that of a prolonged fast.
Sound too good to be true?
We thought so, too.
Until we tested it ourselves.
