Study: 36-hour fasting could reduce weight, improve heart health

A new report suggests that intermittent fasting could have some health benefits. The study, which allowed volunteers to eat whatever they wanted for 12 hours after fasting for 36 hours, showed improvements in weight and cardiovascular health. Internal medicine specialist Dr. Neeta Ogden joins CBSN to discuss.

I didn't eat food for 4 days, here's what happened

Last month, I did my first extended fast. I’d heard all of the benefits of fasting but hadn’t tried anything longer than 24-hours before. The original plan was to do a 3-day fast. But by the end of day 3, I was feeling great and decided to keep going. I could’ve kept it going for longer but decided to save it for the next time.

I wrote a blog post to go along with this video to explain a few things in more detail.

Doctor Mike On Diets: Intermittent Fasting | Diet Review

*NEW* Become A Patreon (100% proceeds go to the charity of your choice) *NEW*
Hey guys! I've seen over and over questions and comments regarding dieting so I decided to start a series where I conduct a diet review in detail. I know many of you want to lose weight and there are many videos on weight loss out there. But I want to give you an honest doctor's take on fasting or time restricted eating.

I kicked off the series with the very popular, intermittent fasting or time-restricted eating. It's claim to fame is that helps burn belly fat/ lose your belly and it does so through fast weight loss. But is fast weight loss even healthy?

Anyway, I could go into more detail covering the smallest intricacies of the diet but I did not want to weigh down the video, both literally and figuratively. Please let me know if this is too little, too much, or just the right amount of information about intermittent fasting.

Also, I want you to remember that diets are not all about weight loss but more importantly about eating healthy. I sincerely hope you enjoy, and definitely let me know if you want more videos like this by giving it a like and a share.

What Happened To My Body During My 48 Hour Fast

After hearing about all of the great benefits associated with fasting, I decided I wanted to put it to the test by doing my own 48 hour fast. This is the story of what happened to my body in what turned out to be the 52 hours that I gave up food.

I decided to begin my fast on a Tuesday afternoon, right after lunch. I woke up in the morning, and documented where I was at. When it came to my weight, in all honesty I was slightly bloated at this point. I was retaining more water than normal because I had a higher than normal salt intake on Sunday, but my weight was 195.2 pounds.

My blood pressure was 122/76 and my Ketones tested at zero.

I decided to skip breakfast to try and deplete my glycogen stores to prepare for my fast, this was so my body could start producing ketones faster, but more on that in a bit. I decided to still eat lunch, because it was taco tuesday and I really didn’t want to miss that. I finished lunch at 11:32AM and the fast was officially underway.

Through this experiment, I continued to exercise, obviously on this first night I didn’t really notice any difference in my performance at this point. Just slightly hungry throughout the night.

Around midnight, 12 hours into the fast, this is when some of the magic of fasting starts to happen. After fasting for 12 hours, Growth Hormone kicks in. Growth Hormone is what helps you to burn fat, build muscle and slows down the aging process. When you start fasting, your body can see a 1300% increase in the production of growth hormone. This is great, because after you reach 30 years of age, your body produces less and less growth hormone. So fasting helps you to produce more.

A few hours later (13 to 15 hours into the fast), the body realizes no food is coming in and begins to make a change from burning sugar for fuel, to burning fat for fuel. This is when the body starts to produce Ketones, the mechanism that your body uses to burn fat as a fuel source. For those wanting to lose fat, this is the stage you want to be in. The more ketones you have in your system, the more healing takes place in your cells and in your brain.

Right around the time I wake up (17 hours into the fast) my body is entering into the Autophagy phase, this is the self healing phase and you can think of it as a detox phase. Your cells realize that your blood sugars going down, and begins to look for energy within itself by eating the toxins within it. Autophagy will max out at about 72 hours, and will continue from there. This is when your body starts to detoxify itself. Also the ketone production in the body is increasing.

My weight for this first morning of the fast was 192 pounds and my ketone levels are at 4.0.

As lunch time rolls around, I hit the 24 hour mark of this fast. I keep going through periods where I'm incredibly hungry, but they pass after a short bit. Now is the time to hold strong, because this is when a lot of the magic really begins to take place.

At the 24 hour period of a fast, intestinal stem cells start to regenerate. This is great for fixing issues like leaky gut.

Your body also starts to create more of a protein called BDNF. BDNF is great for the brain, it will repair damaged neurons and can help with issues like memory loss, lack of focus and depression.

Your Serotonin levels also go up, this is the chemical that makes you happy! Inflammation in the body also starts to decrease and your blood pressure begins to go down.

So at 24 hours into a fast, a whole lot is beginning to happen, this is just from one day of not eating.

As the next morning rolls around I’m hitting the 36 to 48 hour point of the fast, my weights down to 188.8 and my ketone production is now a 16, this is as high as my testing strips measure and best of all, more benefits are kicking in.

Now that my body really notices that I am not getting any new sugars and begins searching for stored sugars within the fat my body stored years ago, this is why my ketones are so high now.

Also the neuron repair in the brain is really ramping up. This can cause some dizziness as well as tiredness. I noticed that I had a slight, dull headache for most of the day, but it wasn’t terrible, I also feel like going to bed earlier than normal.

So technically I hit the 48 hour mark while I was at work, so I couldn’t weigh myself to find my results, so I held off eating for a little longer, but this is great because white blood cells in my body are starting to get recycled and regenerated, this causes a boost in your immune system.

Stem Cell production is also really high now which is helping repair various issues within the body.

I weighed in at 188.4 pounds and definitely saw my waistline shrink in size.

I saw my BMI go from 27.9 to 27

My body fat go from 23.2 % to 21.7%

My subcutaneous fat as well as my visceral fat also dropped and my metabolic age lowered.

My blood pressure also improved, going from 122 /76 to 117 over 76.

Hi, I'm Natalia Rose and today we're going to talk about what to eat to end a fast. It's such a great question. A long time ago I've read somewhere that any fool can fast but it takes a wise man to break the fast. Those are very, very true words. What you break your fast with is extremely significant, well not only the significant to the break fast experience but it will crystallize the entire fast for your body. Meaning that if you break the fast with the wrong foods you could undermine all the good things you did by undertaking the fast to begin with. So the best thing, the safest thing to break the fast on are vegetables, both raw and cooked vegetables. For example, a perfect break fast meal would be a green salad with some raw vegetables and some steamed broccoli or steamed spinach and a baked yam. That would be the perfect break fast meal for just about anyone. Fruit can be much trickier. Only break your fast with fruit if you've been detoxing, cleansing for a long time and you're a veteran faster. Otherwise fruit entering a system that is undergoing its first fast may create more complications. So unless you're a veteran faster and you know what you're doing do not break your fast with fruit.

So you want to be careful not to over eat when you break your fast, a good move would be to establish the parameters around your break fast meal very carefully, very, very clearly. Some of those parameters might be making yourself a salad, making yourself some steamed vegetables, plating it all and establishing that that's the extent of your break fast meal. You can eat whatever's on that plate in your serving but eating beyond that should wait for a later time. During the fast your palate has started to regain its sensitivity. When you're eating in the normal world there's so many food additives and excessive amounts of salt and oils and things used in foods that desensitizes your palate. When you stop eating for several days you regain that sensitivity and you'll start to taste the simplest foods in a much more dynamic way. Enjoy that, enjoy the taste of simply steamed broccoli, a simple bowl of salad with some lemon juice and maybe a little drizzle of olive oil. You'll be like a newborn tasting these foods for the first time and amazed at how delicious simple vegetables can be. You may be wondering when it's time to start reintroducing some of the other foods that you'd like to make a part of your regular diet, such as fish or goat cheese or maybe some of the higher quality grains. You can start to reintroduce those things after the first couple of meals. Bear in mind that the more you introduce the non-water containing plant foods the more you're going to start craving them. So try to keep them at a minimum and benefit from extending the healthy eating as long as you can.

A good rule of thumb for breaking your fast is to make sure to steer clear of acidic foods as much as possible. Acidic foods mean foods are not water containing plant based foods, foods like animal products, packaged foods, fast foods, processed foods. Steer clear of those because your newly sensitized, very open system is going to be much more offended by those acidic foods than you would feel normally.

Fasting and Muscle: How Long Term 1-2 Day Fasts BURN FAT but KEEP MUSCLE?

Fasting for prolonged periods can be a scary fast FAT LOSS tool, but what about if you’re concerned about MUSCLE LOSS? In this video the science will tell us if intermittent long term fasting can work for you also!


In recent years the popularity of intermittent fasting for fat loss has led people to push the limits to longer term, extended fasts. This raises concerns about maintaining muscle mass, we all know that dietary protein is important to build muscle, but what about maintaining it? Over a 1 day or 2 day fast, what will happen to your muscles which were so painstaking to build.

Well thanks to the some incredible biological and hormonal processes involving Growth Hormone and IGF-1, the impact may not be as bad as you might think. In this video we dive in, to see exactly what is going on here. Uncovering some of the science behind what is happening, why its happening, and how we can use it to our best advantage, to build the best body!

First let’s be clear, all weight loss diets can be boiled down to one simple concept. You are reducing your calorie intake, thereby eating less calories than you burn, this forces your body to tap into fat to make up the difference. Converting this fat into energy reduces your fat mass while making up the additional energy you need.

In order to evaluate fasting as a way to lose fat for people interested in still preserving muscle, we need something to compare it against.

Since the goal here is fat loss with a consideration for maintaining muscle, it only makes sense to compare fasting against another similarly effective method of weight loss...

A typical cutting diet; which has participants eating less calories than they consume daily , meaning they schedule their macros so their deficit shows up at the end of each day.

The story of growth hormone release starts with the interactions of two other hormones. This is detailed in a fantastic study from 1992 published in the journal of clinical endocrinology and metabolism.

The first of these hormones is responsible for triggering the release of growth hormone, and is aptly named growth hormone releasing hormone.

the other is called Somatostatin or also sometimes called growth hormone-inhibiting hormone

Throughout the day and night, there are periodic releases of GHRH which should trigger the pituitary gland to release little blips of Growth Hormone. However sometimes this doesn’t work, while sometimes a secretion of GHRH triggers a burst of GH release, if GHIH is being secreted at the same time it cancels out the effects of the GHRH and GH isn’t released.

The result is small blips of growth hormone being released throughout the day into the bloodstream. What makes it even more difficult to study is is once released, growth hormone doesn’t stick around very long, the half life is quite short, in this study the average half life of GH in the blood was just 18 minutes.

During fasting mean levels of GH in the blood increased by 3 fold.

After a closer look they found the pituitary gland had kicked into overdrive, not only did the number of blips of GH release double, the average size of each blip increased as well.

as far as why it’s happening, science isn’t entirely sure, but the mechanism is hypothesized to be a result of an increase in that growth hormone release stimulating hormone, and a simultaneous decrease in the Somostatin which suppresses release as we talked about.

As far as benefits go,

It actually turns out, evidence for growth hormone itself impacting muscle growth and maintenance is mixed. The 1988 study I referenced suggested that GH may indirectly protect muscles by helping the body mobilize fat for fuel, and also support the liver in generating small amounts of necessary glucose.

While some studies have found GH increased muscle protein synthesis, others found no real effect on it…

So what is happening?

Well remember how I mentioned that GH doesn’t stick around very long once it enters the bloodstream, one reason for this is because when it reaches the liver it is transformed into ANOTHER hormone, known as IGF-1.

Unlike Growth Hormone, IGF-1 has a robust backing of scientific evidence supporting its important role in building and maintain muscle, to the point where injectable IGF-1 is a controlled substance under anti doping laws.

There are several well studied pathways which allow for muscle growth and maintenance, IGF-1 is deeply rooted in them.

The Results | 3 Day Fast | I'm Surprised

How to fast for three days. My weight loss experiment.

I'll show you the best way to lose 4 pounds in 3 short days. This comes down to losing almost a pound per day, which is awesome by any standard.

To do your first three-day fast, you will need some preparation. First and foremost is preparing your mind for the practice. Most people will have many fears about attempting a three-day long fast. I did. You have to become fat adapted. Do some research, and know the process and what to expect.

What is fat adapted? It's when your metabolism has used its stores of glycogen as its main fuel source. Our bodies produce glycogen when we eat carbs, it burns quickly and when it is gone we become overcome with hunger and cravings. It will stop when you switch to using fat as fuel. It is true that your brain needs glycogen as a fuel but our liver is amazing. It will take the fat you eat (or your bodies fat and turn it into the chemicals needed to maintain homeostasis. It is very important we stick to a strict ketogenic diet for at least 2 or 3 weeks before you fast.

I found it very surprising that I was not hungry because my body was used to using fat as fuel so it naturally used my body fat when I stopped eating.

It is good to understand the basic principles of fasting, the various bodily reactions, and its benefits. Also, read up on the testimonials of those who have attempted long fasts and learn about their experiences. That will give you confidence.

A normal human body can go for weeks without food. Hence a three-day fast is not difficult. Once you start doing it, you will experience the great health benefits that accompany it. I hear crazy stories of people reversing diabetes and gaining control of their health. If you have a serious illness, consult your physician first before you attempt fasting. Those with certain contraindications like tuberculosis and other deficiency diseases should not take up long-term fasts. Also, pregnant women should avoid long-term fasts.

Also, after the 3 day fast, you need to slowly come back to regular eating habits. Hence you should plan for a total of 4 days for the complete process. Ideally. I started on Thursday and fasted into the weekend so I could be at home in case I became sleepy and couldn't drive. This didn't happen. In fact, I had MORE energy and was so clear-minded it took me back.

How to do a Three-day fast?

In a three-day fast, you must drink only water, coffee or tea. No solid food or other liquids that contain nutrition (like fruit juice, milk, etc) are allowed. Simple pure mineral water is good. You can also use bone broth and salt to get needed minerals.

It is been said not to exercise while fasting. I can agree however, I did not follow that. I found I was very energized and could exercise.

Will you be super hungry?

One may feel a sudden bout of hunger. To overcome it, just drink one or two glasses of water. Maybe lie down and take rest. The hunger should go away in a short time. If not, it may be a deficiency in potassium. Cream of tartar is a quick fix for this. Also, try an ounce of apple cider vinegar you get very hungry.

Give it a try! Let me know what worked for you in the comments. Keep it keto guys!

How Intermittent Fasting Affects Your Body and Brain | The Human Body

Stars like Beyonce and Hugh Jackman have spoken out about following intermittent fasting plans to get in shape. How does intermittent fasting work? Here's what actually happens to your body and brain when you fast. Following is a transcript of the video.

How long has it been since you last ate? People who fast intermittently often eat within an 8-hour block, leaving 16 hours of fasting in between. During that 16-hour stretch, their bodies undergo an important change that sets them apart from non-fasters.

Here's how it works.

When you eat, you store some of that energy in the liver as glycogen. But after 10-12 hours of not eating, your glycogen reserves will be extremely low. As a result, you may feel more irritable than normal, a term scientists call hangry.

The upside is — with little glycogen left — fat cells in your body release fats into your bloodstream. The fat cells head straight to your liver, where they're converted to energy for your body and brain. So, you are literally burning fat to survive.

Blood samples show that people who had fasted for 12-24 hours experienced a 60% increase in energy from fat, with the biggest change occurring after 18 hours. This is the benefit to intermittent fasting because it puts you in a state called ketosis. And it's why researchers think intermittent fasting could be the key to a longer, healthier life.

The process of burning fat releases chemicals called ketones. In the brain, ketones trigger the release of an important molecule called BDNF. BDNF helps build and strengthen neurons and neural connections in areas of the brain responsible for learning and memory. Which could explain why a boost in ketone production has been shown to improve memory in people with early signs of dementia in as soon as 6 weeks. Increasing ketones in the body is also a common treatment for patients with severe epilepsy.

You don't necessarily have to fast to boost your ketone levels. Introducing more fatty foods into your diet and cutting back on carbs can have a similar effect. A group of people who tried this method for 3 months not only lost weight and body fat, but also saw a decrease in blood pressure and a hormone (IGF-1) that is related to aging and disease.

But scientists have discovered that fasting increases ketone levels more. Ketogenic diets can increase ketones 4-fold whereas fasting has been shown to increase ketones by up to 20-fold. As a result, fasting — compared to a ketogenic diet — may have a stronger, more beneficial effect on overall health.

Yet many Americans who eat three meals a day with snacks in between never reach ketosis, and therefore aren't producing enough ketones to promote good health.

Fasting and ketosis have been a key to our survival from the beginning. They helped our ancient ancestors survive through bouts of starvation.

And today, they're becoming recognized as a way to help keep future generations mentally and physically disease-free.

In today's video, i will be doing a vlog my 48 hour water fasting challenge. I take you through my water fast in a vlog fashion to show you how I felt throughout the process and tried to give some fasting tips in the video aswell. From the start to the end of this fast I lost a total of 6.35kg or about 14 pounds(lbs) From now on I will continue to do water fasts but for a shorter timeframe e.g. 24-36 hours. I hope you enjoy the vlog! I will be putting out more fitness related vlogs like this one in the near future so make sure to subscribe!
