Periodic Fasting: Repair your DNA, Grow Younger, and Learn to Appreciate your Food

In a modern world where it's considered normal to consume 3 meals and additional snacks everyday (otherwise you will get sick), fasting can be considered an outrageous and even dangerous practice. One of the biggest fears of fasting is the fear hunger, the false hunger that most people are afraid of while depleting their glycogen stores (the body sugar storage). Fasting ha In a modern world where it's considered normal to consume 3 meals and additional snacks everyday (otherwise you will get sick), fasting can be considered an outrageous and even dangerous practice. One of the biggest fears of fasting is the fear hunger, the false hunger that most people are afraid of while depleting their glycogen stores (the body sugar storage). Fasting has often been associated with religious customs. It is time to define a line between the two. In Periodic Fasting, I embark on a timeless journey from the very beginning of life on Earth, through early human societies, through the middle Ages and into modern days to explore the concepts and practices of prolonged fasting and intermittent fasting (IF). Periodic Fasting is about: 1. My early life encounters with fasting in the small village of my grandparents (using a high-carb diet). 2. How primitive life-forms on Earth and fasting co-evolved; fasting in the animal kingdom. 3. Early hominid species, food restriction, and meal frequency. The first organized human societies and the switch between irregular feeding to regular dietary patterns. Circadian rhythmicity and meal timing. 4. The personal story of a man from the middle Ages who started consuming less food in his mid-thirties because of poor health and lived to 102 years (narrated by himself). 5. The dozens of prolonged fasting experiments in the beginning of the 20th century; fasting as a cure to many ailments. 6. How people can live without food for 139, 236 and even 382 days (medically supervised experiments). Details of 7-40 days fasts done by lean people for rejuvenation, detoxification and increased life span. 7. The emerging science and the studies of fasting from the mid-20th century (pathological implications - diabetes, obesity, CVD, cancer, and others). 8. How fasting and semi-starvation can be totally opposite: disturbing stories from the Second World War. 9. The molecular mechanisms of fasting: what happens when your body focuses on cell repair and tissue rejuvenation, instead of digesting food. 10. How the secretion of some hormones may be widely misunderstood: especially thyroid hormones and insulin. On muscle-loss phobia, mainstream media, and bro-science. 11. The modern-day science of prolonged fasting and intermittent fasting (AMPk, SIRT, FOXO, etc). 12. My personal prolonged water-only fasting experiment; insights into refeeding and realimentation after long-term fasting. 13. My 1 year and 3 months daily intermittent fasting protocol (still on-going). My ever-adapting exercising protocol (lifting), what I eat everyday, what supplements I use and what other cool strategies help me stay consistent and compliant with the protocol. 14. How I combine intermittent fasting (IF), a well formulated ketogenic diet, and calorie restriction to immensely increase the quality of my life, and paradoxically, never feel hungry; how energy levels and mood can increase if you correctly adopt a fasting protocol. Once armed with this knowledge, you will drastically alter your perspective about your body's limits.

    Terrific read! Mr. Zot has really done his homework. If you'd like to know the science behind intermmident fasting this book will have the answers. Beginning with some historical references to fasting and ending with his own experiences Mr. Zot completely covers the issues. Well referenced also. He doesn't give you your personal menu because it should be more personalised than an author telling you what's right for yourself. Mr Zot comes across as a very honest writer not trying to impose his vie Terrific read! Mr. Zot has really done his homework.

    Knowing why and how periodic and intermittent fasting works, this is your book. This book is heavy in actual studies with a few anecdotes.

This book is heavy in actual studies with a few anecdotes. If you like solid research to back up your health and weight choices, this is perfect. If you prefer a lot of rah rah hype, look elsewhere. I like finding out why simply lowering calories fails and what to do instead. AUTOPHAGY is explained and the anti- cancer aspects of fasting are compelling. Conquering jet lag with fasting interests me because traveling from California eastward, especially to Europe is a challenge for me. My first day there is lost in recovery. I also like the idea that this way of eating can rejuvenate, heal and add years of life. As I said earlier, this book is heavy on research. If you like that, you will love it. I appreciate that this information is backed by science instead of fluff.

    Lots of great info, synthesizing the latest (and historical) research from some of the brightest names in modern nutritional science. With proper editing, this could have been a five-star book, but it unfortunately falls short due to multiple typos, a sometimes whiplash-inducing shift between ultra-casual and ultra-scientific writing, and undue repetition.

    An interesting short book, but with a lot of repeated ideas. Thus, the content of this book is even shorter.

    This book is an incredibly rich resource with a huge number of annotations so that the reader can confirm all of the information provided. The author has gone to a great deal of trouble researching nutrition from a maximum health/maximum lifespan goal orientation and clearly states when he thinks the research he uncovered has a broad basis that may help most people verses how his personal body genetics respond better or worse to the protocols derived from the research he studied.

    Excellent info if you have Cancer Hard science but so worth it. An in depth study on fasting throughout history. Lot's of studies sighted proving how necessary it is to have better health, longer life and get rid of many chronic illnesses. AND a way to do it without all the hunger and headaches. I recently did a four day fast with no discomfiture. It was my first ever and I felt like just going. This was because I had given up sugar, starches and grains gradually. Now I eat from 10 am to 6 pm. In Excellent info if you have Cancer Hard science but so worth it. An in depth study on fasting throughout history.

    Intermittent Fasting is easy! This book has been very helpful for my IF experiment. I've gone two days now with only supper, and am considering extending indefinitely with an additional annual water-only fast perhaps later in the year per Dr. Seyfried's 7-10 day anti-cancer recommendation. I forgot to mention that I've been keto-adapted since May'14, so maybe I can start the clock on a daily IF protocol on top of that! Intermittent Fasting is easy!

    The book is very detailed and goes over a great number of studies (probably as many as there are on the subject) and enlists the numerous benefits of both intermittent and prolonged fasting in great detail, showing the results of these studies and also he's personal experience in the field. The author has clearly done his homework on the subject!

    If you want to know the science behind water fasting then this is a great book for you. For me, it was too much detail on the studies & I got bored & skimmed through some of it. It is not a book to really help you water fast, but gives you tips on what you can do. Water fasting seems extremely hard & I don't know if I would do it.

    Clearly self-published and desperate for an editor. Sometimes painful reading. Some good information, probably a lot if you're into heavy-duty fasting. Might have inspired me to try a 3-day water fast. Or not. Clearly self-published and desperate for an editor. Sometimes painful reading.

    The best thing about this was that it was a good source of fasting information for those on a Ketogenic diet. The worst thing about it was that the author really needs to proofread.
