6 INSANE FASTING Benefits to Reverse Your Age TODAY! | Mark Hyman & Dave Asprey

Fasting also helps us switch into a fat-burning mode that utilizes ketones instead of glucose. But, fasting also does more than change the physical body. It’s estimated that 30% of our thoughts are about our next meal. That’s a lot of time and energy wrapped up in food, and fasting can help us regain control of ourselves, our minds, and so much more.

Dave Asprey joined me on The Doctor’s Farmacy to share some of his favorite hacks to increase ketone production, balance hunger hormones, and feed good gut bacteria to help us feel satiated and energized even while fasting.

Dave and I also talk about the topic of mitochondrial function, why it matters for healthy aging, and how fasting supports stronger mitochondria. We also look at why fasting is different for women than it is for men and how they can fast in a way that compliments their natural hormonal cycle.

Dave is the founder and Chairman of Bulletproof 360, a high-performance coffee and food company, and creator of the widely-popular Bulletproof Coffee. He is a three-time New York Times bestselling author, host of the Webby award-winning podcast Bulletproof Radio, and has been featured on the Today show, Fox News, Nightline, CNN, and dozens more. Over the last two decades Dave, the “Father of Biohacking”, has worked with world-renowned doctors, researchers, scientists, and global mavericks to uncover the latest, most innovative methods, techniques, and products for enhancing mental and physical performance.

  1. This is a great conversation. I cannot stand coffee is it possible for you to answer this question. Do ketones occur while I drink Macha 'Bulletproof" Macha tea. THANK YOU Dr. Hyman love your videos and guests.

  2. Heck, I can put my body into ketosis in 3 – 4 days every time. When I am overweight. which can happen, I simply cut my Total Carbs to 65 grams/day. I will loose nearly a pound/day.
    Last time I did this I lost exactly 32 pounds in exactly five weeks using a Medical sliding weight scale. Nothing new here, for me anyway

  3. The interviewer has so much to say, but Mark, why are you talking so much? Your job is to ask questions, not act like you are the guest.

  4. Please check the Vox article which shows flimsy data about the Kale and thallium conclusion he makes. He needs to be careful about jumping to conclusions. It makes me question other claims he makes.

  5. Some of the techniques work and some don't. I can drink a thermos of coffee (4 cups) immediately before bed, and fall asleep immediately, not waking up naturally (without an alarm clock) until the next morning, after 6 to 7 hours of sleep.

  6. I wish Dave would address post-menopausal women. I have heard every interview re: this book and I appreciate the perio mention, but not a thing about post menopausal –

  7. I suffer from daily general anxiety. Whenever I try to fast my anxiety doubles so it's very hard to get on a fasting routine. I constantly crave carbs due to my anxiety. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  8. The cold water thing is for real. The first time I was suffering at the 8 second mark. Now, a minute is nothing and i look forward to it and am energized afterwards.

  9. Yes, meditation is easier when you donโ€™t have toxic thoughts and hatred. You wonโ€™t need anything else for a deep sleep and less sleep, just by meditation.

  10. I agree with you on Spirituality, the more you feed your ME (Toxic), the farther you get from your soul and other important connections.

  11. Dave has some interesting things. I pick and choose what may work for me. But I lose some respect for all of these youtube people when they all sell over priced supplements and other products. Yes I know they employ people. Nothing wrong with making money it is the American way. And yes I have purchased some of his products. I started this way of eating a month ago hopefully to lose weight and to get off all prescriptions. Now I find with more watching and listening they try to convince me I need more pills. Boggles the mind of an old lady. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Doesnโ€™t taking activated charcoal also remove nutrients? I only take activated charcoal if I feel like I got some kind of food poisoning or virus bacterial thing going on
