Episode 59: Holiday Biohacking Part 2
Dr. Dan Pompa:
All right. Welcome to Health Hunters radio the Christmas edition. This is part two to how to bio-hack your Christmas. So you can have some fun, eat what you want, have some wine, and yet not gain weight and feel like crap. So we talked about last week, if you didn’t listen to that show, please do. It’s part one and this is a two part series. So today, we’re going to give you the rest of the bio-hack. Last time, I gave three products that are magical around this bio-hack, talking about why cellular detox is critical because of certain toxins that we’re going to be exposed to in high levels during the holiday season. And believe me when I tell you a lot of people come out of the holidays wondering why they’ve stopped losing weight, can’t gain weight, or lose the weight that they hate, all of that.
And it’s because really more of the toxins that they consumed than the food. However, let’s give some bio-hacks that will enable you to have these amazing dinners, and enjoy them, and still not have the guilt, the weight gain, and just in general feeling like crap. Look, this is a big show because when people look at my wife and time, she has a big Facebook following, they’ll see us out to dinner at nice restaurant. Now, granted, we know how to order, and we do that. And I believe you can go to most good restaurants and order correctly, and still enjoy the meal. Listen, I’m Italian, I grew up around food. This is all we did. Food was everything, every family function. We weren’t fat by any means, but today, there is a difference.
There is a difference in the food, there’s definitely a difference in the chemical toxicity, things called neurotoxins that we’ve never been exposed to in the food. Which, again, last week I talked about why that makes you fat, and why that messes your cells, your hormones, and why your cells can’t hear certain hormones, and it causes weight loss resistance. Then what to do about it? I did give you the answer in that show, so it’s a great show. But this show is more about basically what you can do on a diet basis, the bio-hacks here that allow you to eat like kings and feast. And here’s the back part of it: famine. Feast and famine, so where there’s a feast, there’s going to be a famine. And that’s the fascinating component that I’m going to teach you.
But look, if you do what I’m going to teach you to do on this show, you will be able to feast and have a really good time. And also the last show, you have to add that in as well because you will knowingly be exposed to certain toxins that can really screw up the cells and hormones. And we don’t want that, but you wanna enjoy some of these higher carbohydrate meals. I’m just thinking of that, pumpkin pie is always one of my favorites. I love gelato. Man, ice cream has always been one of my weaknesses. I will choose the better stuff always. I love pasta. One of my favorites is the olive oil with spaghetti and clam sauce, garlic, the whole thing. But I choose the organic flour because of what I talked about last week. They spray the grains with glyphosate and it really causes some problems.
So when we’re going to choose, when we’re diving into some of these foods that we don’t eat a lot of this holiday, choose the right stuff. And of course, sometimes you’re not going to be able to do that. That’s why last week’s show important, too, because you will be exposed. Even cookies and things like that, all my websites, [inaudible 00:05:15] we have so many recipes on how to make healthy cookies using almond flour. My cellular healing guide book has so many recipes. Chelsea’s cheesecake, she was an old patient of mine back in the day. And her cheesecake, I’m telling you, it’s as good, if not better, than your standard cheesecake. A lot of cheesecake because that’s another one of my favorites.
But look, my wife and I are in our 50s, we’re lean, arguably healthier than we were in our 20s and 30s, honestly. And yet, we do enjoy good food. As I said, this is part of my heritage. I’m going to do some pasta dishes. Manicotti just keeps coming to my mind, so I have someone make me some manicotti. My mom’s was the best. And I do, I love it. It’s the ricotta cheese in there. I might be leaving the show and searching for manicotti right now. But the point is we have our traditional meals and I want everyone to enjoy them, so how do we do that. And there is a way. I’m going to say this, not only you’ll be able to enjoy these meals and there’s a way, but arguably, you could come out of the holidays actually better than you enter them in if you apply today’s message. So I’m going to start with this, first of all, I have done many shows on fasting.
And again, there’s many ways to fast. We talk about partial fasting, which is limiting your calories to 500 to 1,000, basically, a day for five days. And what does that look like? Higher fat foods, we want still your carbohydrates will be under 50 typically on a diet that like that because the calories are so low. And of course, it makes for lower protein as well. And during the partial fast, you get this stimulation, sometimes pathic called autophagy, where the body eats the bad cells and the debris. So there’s a detox effect, if you will, from that, but your body will get rid of the bad stuff. And then when it gets rid of these bad cells, it starts to produce stem cells and it heals at a level that’s just impossible to heal otherwise. And typically, we like those five day fasts, so that’s a partial fast.
And of course, many of you heard me talking about the benefits of water fasting. You get lots of this autophagy and stem cell stimulation. And if you haven’t been on my Facebook, there is called fasting for a purpose. That’s a group, you could join our fasting group because we’re going to be doing another fast in January and February. So join and you’ll get to watch a lot of great videos I’ve done on this topic of fasting, and shows right here on Health Hunters radio. And you can also go to my fan page. And under videos, hit all videos and go back, and you can watch a fast that began September 23rd. But if you go back about four weeks or three weeks before that, you’ll see videos that led up to what to do to prepare for a fast. Okay, so all the information about fasting, this show isn’t about fasting, it’s about how to put a plan together to bio-hack your holidays so you don’t gain weight and feel like crap.
But here’s what I’m saying there, there’s a longer fast that I’ve talked about and plan a fast for January because it’s going to be one of those things that helps cleanse some of the naughties that you’ve done. But also, it’ll kick your metabolism back in. And we’re going to do something before the fast so you actually going into it prepared to maximize your results from the fast. And you’re going to do that right through the darn holiday. So there’s something I talked about, daily intermittent fasting, which means that you fast every day and experience those benefits of autophagy and stem cells. And how do you do that? Well, if you do this during the holidays, you’re definitely going to be able to feast and enjoy a lot more food. That means instead of eating three meals, by the way, it’s really known that Americans eat too many meals.
And if you want to die sooner and have less health, eat more often. All right, so we’re going to talk about this intermittent fasting. By the way, it’s the number one Googled term in natural health right now, intermittent fasting. A lot of people are interested because it works so well. All right, so when we get back, we’re going to talk about how to intermittent fast exactly. And then the real key, the real bio-hack, diet variation when we get back on Health Hunters Radio.
All right, welcome back to a great show, part two. How to bio-hack your Christmas and New Years so you don’t gain weight and feel like crap. And last week’s show, you better listen to it because it’s part of the solution. This week’s show we’re talking about the dietary answer. I talked about intermittent fasting and we talked about doing a longer fast, planning that for January, February. And joining us on fasting for a purpose on my Facebook page where I’m going to be doing videos every day come the fasting time in January. I think I’ll be starting videos daily. I’ll be starting videos once a week on January 14th and then carrying through to the fast that we’re doing in February, but you can watch for announcements on my Facebook page.
And right here, I’ll be walking you through the fast, as well. So Health Hunters Radio is going to partake in our fasting summit. Okay, so what is intermittent fasting. I said it was the number one Googled search term in natural health because the popularity is getting out there. And I’ve done this for many, many years and it’s just now getting popular. So intermittent fasting is when you basically eat less often. And I said the average American eats too many meals. It’s literally between 17 and 21 meals a day they say the average American eats. Now, I know what you’re thinking because I thought the same thing. Wait a minute, that excessive. I would say at least six, seven, eight. Well, no, because every time you drink the kombucha, every time you have the handful of nuts, that’s a meal. It spikes insulin and glucose and the body handles it as a meal and derives of energy to processing, digesting, and assimilating the nutrients. And it’s costly.
The more you eat, the sooner you die. The opposite is true, the less you eat, and I should really phrase it, the less often you eat, the longer you live. When you look at studies, it’s proven, eat less and live longer. However, where we go wrong often times is we think it’s chloric restriction. It’s not. You want to emulate ancient cultures by eating less, by eating less often. So intermittent fasting is just that, it’s basically eating in a smaller window during the day. So I typically eat in a four hour window, meaning that I don’t eat breakfast, my first meal is maybe 2:00 or 3:00, and my last meal is maybe 6:00 or 7:00 at night. So you can eat as many meals as you want in the window, so I could eat if I desired three times in my four hour window. Most people beginning intermittent fasting, we say pick up eight or a 10 hour window and eat your meals in that window. If it’s two meals, great. Three meals, fine, but what it does is it opens up a fasting window.
So therefore, you’re fasting between maybe 15, 20 hours. And in that fasting window, your body goes through a slight bit of this autophagy that I was talking about, where your body gets rid of its bad cells, debris, garbage. It’s that smart, it feeds from that bad stuff and not the good stuff. Guess what else it does during that time? Yeah, it will feed from your fat. You basically train your body when you’re not eating to use fat. Here’s the problem, your cells can only use two things for energy, glucose, sugar we’ll say, or fat. So when most people, because we eat so many carbs and bad food, when they’re not eating, it’s basically going to eventually give you a craving and say, “Eat the sugar, eat the bread.” And so you go by the kitchen, you just have the need to eat because your cells don’t know how to burn its own fat hormonally. You eat so many meals and the cells are so desensitized to the hormones that it allow it to burn fat as energy that you’re not a fat burner efficiently. So you burn sugar.
So one of two things happens if you go without food. You either get a craving you can’t resist, so it’s not your fault. It’s hormonal and you’re not going to beat it, or if you go without food, your body will break its own muscle down into sugar because it has to burn sugar. It’s stuck as a sugar burner. So this intermittent fasting, and we have other strategies as well, but it helps you become a more efficient fat burner and it helps you to become fat adapted. When you’re not eating, eventually your body starts to burn its own fat, sounds like a winner. That’s how you live longer and healthy, and that’s how you stay lean in your 50s, 60s, 70s. Take my wife and I. So it really took us to the next level when we started intermittent fasting. And there is days of the week where we just eat one big meal.
And by the way, it’s important to feast. If you don’t eat at least one big meal, then eventually, it may take a few months, but eventually the body will actually start to conserve its fat because if that’s the only energy source it has, it will say, “Let’s hang on to this.” And then you start actually gaining fat actually unknowingly. I mean, you’re eating this perfect diet and going, “Why am I getting fat around my thighs or my waist?” It’s because your body went into a starvation mode. It said, “You know what? This fat is so precious because it’s the only energy I’m burning,” because it gets that efficient that it gets more efficient. It says, “Let’s hold on to it in case we need it for energy to survive.” All the body really wants to do is survive. So what it’ll do is actually slow down your metabolism, hold on to more fat. And there’s multiple ways that it does that without getting deep into the science. Bottom line is you’re going to store fat.
So this is really important and this is exciting news. The feast days are as important as the fast days. So I said my wife and I will have two or three days a week where we eat one meal, but we have at least one or two days a week where we eat a lot, we feast. So this is the strategy for you, so you go start intermittent fasting, start eating in an eight hour window. Maybe it’s 10, then bring it down to a six hour window. Then maybe one day a week you actually eat one meal. I wouldn’t start there, just start eating in a window and then just narrow it down, narrow down your window. And then eventually, after a few weeks, you can apply what I call my 511. We have two weeks before Christmas here, but my goal for you is to do this even after Christmas, but you do my 511. So the 511 is you do five days of the intermittent fasting, eating in your eight hour window, six hour window, four hour window. That’s five days, then you pick a day where you eat one meal.
And that could be Wednesday if you want, you busiest day is the day I do it. And then you pick another day to feast. That’s your Friday or Saturday where you’re going to be partaking parties. There’s your feast day. And again, I’m going to repeat it, the feast day is as important, if not more important, than the fast days. So 511, we’re emulating something that ancient cultures were forced in doing, that’s feast and famine. Look, I don’t have time or nor are you interested in the studies, but I can tell you that feast/famine actually works better for weight loss than just eating a very strict diet all the time. It does, it bio-hacks the body into reminding it’s not starving, keep your metabolism up. That’s why the feast days are important. And the famine days, they’re important because you get even more of this autophagy, more of your body burning its own fat for energy. Once you start training it to use fat as energy, then eating less often becomes a real benefit.
But you need the feast days. All right, I’m going to add on to this strategy when we get back on the next segment of Health Hunters Radio.
And welcome back to Health Hunters Radio. Great topic here, great show, this is how you’re going to bio-hack your holiday so you don’t end up fatter or more sick, feeling bad, feeling like crap. You don’t want that. These are the bio-hacks, last week and this week’s show talking about intermittent fasting. And then I moved into how to do this thing called diet variation, feast/famine cycling. And I gave my bio-hack of the 511 rule, where you have five days eating in a window, all your meals within perhaps an eight, six, or a four hour eating window. And therefore you’re fasting every day. It’s called daily intermittent fasting. It works. It forces your body to become more efficient in using fat as energy, not giving you cravings. Listen, in the beginning, you’re going to have some cravings you’re going to wanna eat, but your body’s going to hormonally adjust. Humans were meant to do this. I had time in Africa and I saw this.
I had one of the last hunting gathering tribes, and I was like, “Where are all the men?” And they said, “They’re out hunting.” And they left early in the morning, before the sun even came up and they were gone until afternoon sometime. And I said, “Man, what do they eat they’re gone all day?” They don’t eat, they barely drink water. Eating would slow them down because they’re going after prey. And they just came home and ate one meal. And granted, it may have lasted three hours as a cultural feast. Which by the way, most European countries and cultures still eat like that. They barely eat during the day and then they feast later in the afternoon. It’s definitely the Italian way, they drink espressos all day. We went to Italy, my wife and I with a friend of ours, Marco and Amy. They own a great restaurant here in Salt Lake, an Italian restaurant called Venito.
And this is what they did. We just drank little espressos through the day and then we feasted. And again, the feast is as important because it reminds the body it’s not starving. If you go every day intermittent fasting and then don’t eat a big enough dinner, eventually the body will think it’s starving and it will start hanging on to your fat. It doesn’t work, chloric restriction doesn’t work. But when you eat to full in your eating window, that’s critical. One of the things I do when I intermittent fast is my afternoon meal, because I’m very busy whether it’s around two, three, four o’clock, it’s a small, quick meal. And I just want to get on about my business, I don’t want to bog myself down, but then dinner we feast. You could do the opposite. You could eat a bigger meal early and then just a little snack later on, but the key is staying in your window and forcing your body to burn fat.
There’s a lot of other things I’m not covering of why this works. During this fasting time, your body becomes very hormone sensitive, meaning your cells hear your hormones better. And that’s key. That’s really important for weight loss because everyone’s taking hormones today. It’s not the answer. The answer is getting your cells to hear your hormones better. Taking hormones, it’s like shouting at your kids. It works in the beginning, and then they don’t even hear you anymore. That’s what’s happening today. The key is getting your cells to hear your hormones. It’s like type two diabetes, called insulin resistance. Meaning your cells don’t hear insulin, you start storing more fat, and getting more sick, not good. Well, we want our cells to hear all of our hormones and that’s one of the things this fasting does, is it gets your cells to hear your hormones. Therefore, you feel better, you have more energy, it hears your thyroid hormone better, it hears your insulin better.
A hormone called leptin that controls appetite hears it better, therefore you feel better bottom line. So the more you do this intermittent fasting, the more your cells hear your hormones, and that’s the key to hormones. And I call it hormone optimization, but this is diet variation when you feast a day. And I’ll tell you what that looks like in a moment, or fast a day, or maybe you go without a meal and eat a meal the next day. This feast/famine drives something called hormone optimization and that’s what the studies show. So it works better than just staying on a very perfect diet all the time. When you actually do this feast where you eat a lot and then famine, it actually drives hormones in the right direction better than just staying on any diet for that matter. As a matter of fact, in my book, I talked about why this worked better than all the diets for weight loss, the feast and the famine.
So therefore, your feast parties for the holidays are going to work for you and remind your body it’s not starving, and keep your hormonally in check, if you will. I’m going to give you an example of that. So let’s say that your body, I said your cells use two things for energy, sugar or fat. When we start to eat better, our bodies start to use more fat for energy, which is great. But eventually, it says, “I’m going to run out of this, I’m going to start storing more of it, slow down the burning of the fat.” Here’s an example, you’re in the middle of a harsh winter up in Alaska, by yourself miles into the woods. You’re in your cabin and you have your stack of wood ready for winter. This winter was far harsher than the last and your plan on a certain amount of wood basically based on the last few winters, but this winter’s worse, way more cold.
So you’re burning through your wood supply very rapidly. That’s your fat. Eventually, you’re going to go, “I have to survive.” That’s your body thinking. Well, are you going to burn less wood or more wood? You’re going to start burning less wood knowing that you’re going to run out. That’s your body burning less fat to survive. But your friend comes over with a feast, meaning your friend comes over with a big thing of wood. And he says, “I have plenty.” And he dumps you a new thing of wood. Guess what? You’re going to start firing up the metabolism again. You’re going to start burning more wood because you have more wood. That’s what happens after feast day. Your body goes, “Okay, we’re good. And I’m going to start burning more fat.” So after the feast day, your body’s actually reengage and raise up the metabolism and start burning up fat again. Yeah, you need the feast days. So feast and famine, so that’s my challenge to you, 511. Let’s take it to another level.
Let’s go to 421, where you do two fast days in one feast day. Let’s flip it again. You could do 322, where you have two fast days eating one meal and two feast days. Now, you’re feasting Friday and Saturday, or maybe it’s Thursday and Saturday, whatever. So now, you’re feast/famine, feast/famine. I even like 331 where I’ll do three fast days. That one’s probably better for people who are already very efficient at burning fat, but the point is feast/famine. So if you’re going to have some parties and feast, throw in the famine days where you eat one meal. But by all means, stay within your eating window of whether it’s eight hours, six hours, or four hours. So these strategies, diet variation, feast/famine strategies, I’m telling you it works. It really does work. You’ll be able to eat guilt free and you’ll be able to have the pasta dishes. Throwing all these carbohydrates at it, remember that’s a feast.
And let me give you an example of what my feast days look like because I’m going to get that question. So there’s multiple ways to do feast days. Number one is increasing the meals you eat. Maybe you choose to eat three or four meals that day, choose to eat breakfast because I don’t eat breakfast. But sometimes, when we’re traveling on the way, we choose to eat breakfast. That works for us as long as you don’t do it every day. So maybe that’s one way of feasting, you’re taking in more calories, you’re feasting breakfast, lunch, dinner, so you’re spreading out your eating window. But also, just higher carbohydrates. This is the day where you can eat the bowl of pasta, potatoes, more fruit. And yeah, for those who have health challenges, keep the carbs healthy. That’s my advice. Obviously, if you have gluten issues, or other issues, don’t eat that. You can get healthy carbs through potatoes and other things, fruits, other carbohydrates that you do okay with. Rice, whatever it is.
So choose carbohydrates you do well with. If you don’t have health issues, enjoy. But again, you could eat more, you could eat more often, you could eat more carbs. I don’t do well with carbs at all because you have health challenges. All right, increase your protein. Believe it or not, that works, too. As long as the body feels like it’s feasting, then you’re going to get the benefit, the hormone optimization from the feast famine. When we get back, some more ideas on Health Hunters Radio.
All right, welcome back to Health Hunters Radio. And we’re talking about how to bio-hack your holidays so you not only don’t get fat during the holidays, but you feel better guilt free. And you can even come out of the holidays in better shape. That’s what feast/famine cycling does, that’s what diet variation does, and that’s what the detox does, which we talked about last week. So this holiday, you’re going to bio-hack your Christmas, and your New Years and have a merry Christmas for sure. So this is the way to do it. You do what I tell you to do here, I’m telling you I’ll be getting letters and emails saying thank you. This is the best holiday I ever had. So the feast days are as important as the fast days, as I pointed out. It’s absolutely a concept that I know runs counterintuitive to your brain. How could these feasts, and the fun at the parties, and the pumpkin pie actually help me? It helps you because it reminds your body it’s not starving and it helps you because it creates a hormone optimization when you do the feast and the famine.
Yeah, you have to do some fasting. Eat one meal or no meals some days, but you actually have to do the feasting otherwise it doesn’t work either. So the magic is doing both and I gave you the 511. I have you the 421 where you have two fast days and one feast. I gave you a 322 where you have two feasts and two fasts and four days just intermittent fasting. Let’s take it to the next level, so you’ve heard me discuss ketosis. Ketosis is where you force yourselves to be a fat burning machine. Now, you have two weeks here before the holidays, or before Christmas I should say, and I want you to go into ketosis first. And again, I’ve done a lot of videos on cellular healing TV at drpompa.com, I’ve even talked about this in my Facebook, fasting for a purpose, and the videos, but becoming fat adapted is magic. How do you do that?
It takes the average person about two weeks to become fat adapted, perfect for Christmas, and you’ll get even more out of your feast/famine cycles. How do you put yourself into this ketosis. Let me back up. What is it? You’ve heard the word, maybe, maybe not. Okay, ketosis simply means that you lower your carbohydrates down so much that you’re forcing the cells to use fat as an energy source. It takes about two weeks to adapt. Therefore, the first week, you will not like me. You will feel more tired, then maybe a little bit dizzy because you’re stuck as a sugar burner and the cells can only use sugar or fat. You’ve heard me say that three times. And this shift can take a week or so, so therefore as you’re shifting from sugar burner to a fat burner, your brain’s just wanting sugar because your brain can only use two things for energy, different than your body cells. Sugar, or ketones. That’s the word ketosis. So here’s what your body does to survive to keep its brain healthy for you not to die.
When it burns fat, what you’re forcing it to do by lowering your carbohydrates, and I’ll tell you how much to lower it to, what happens is it produces something called ketones. So your body’s cells can use fat for energy, but your brain can’t. So your body’s cells are burning your fat for energy, then it makes these ketones that your brain loves. These ketones burn really efficient. It’s just amazing how much your brain loves them. Back in the early 1900s, they used ketosis to heal the brain for seizure disorders, neurodegenerative diseases. And then we started inventing drugs like [inaudible 00:45:35] and other drugs which we thought, “Why put yourself through that misery? The drugs are failing.” And now people literally are going back into realizing ketosis is magic for the brain. When I’d get in ketosis to get fat adapted, and I move in and out of this diet purposely. It’s part of my diet variation. Again, many videos on that. When I move in, I know because my brain just turns on.
So will yours, but it does take a couple weeks. It’ll start now, is the point. So basically, you’re forcing yourselves to use fat as energy. They make these ketones and your brain loves these things. And you’re basically functioning like a very efficient fat burning machine at this point. And therefore, you’re going to get more when you’re not eating for 15, 18, 20 hours. Your body’s just ripping through fat. So way more efficient and you get more autophagy when you’re in ketosis. And the feast days matter more, too. So the 511, 421, 331, whatever you choose, you’re going to get more out of it by being in ketosis. It still works whether you’re in ketosis or not, but now, and my wife we’ve become so fat adapted, basically fat flexible if you will, that we can move into ketosis very quickly.
So even when we’re not in ketosis, when we’re intermittent fasting, by the afternoon, we’re in ketosis. And then maybe we eat a high carbohydrate meal, we’re out, but then we get back in. You’ll get to that flexibility as you get more efficient. But right now, many of you need to lower your carbohydrates to get into this ketotic state as we’re calling it. You need to lower your carbohydrates below 50 grams of net carbs. What does that mean? That means you look at a label, you minus the fiber, and there is your net carbs. So for example, let’s say blueberries. I’m making up numbers here, let’s say a cup of blueberries has 15 grams of carbs. Well, I’m going to eat a whole cup, how much fiber. And it says right on the label. Let’s say 10 grams is fiber, you minus the 10 from the 15, you ave five net carbs. You can do that with every food. By the way, you can Google just about anything. How many carbs are in a sweet potato and it’ll give you the fiber amount, the carb amount.
You just total your net carbs. The average person, keeping them under 50 will put you in ketosis in about two weeks. Some of you may have to go down to 30, 20. Everyone’s a little different. So if you’re not getting into ketosis, I’m going to tell you how to do that very quickly, then you have to lower your carbs. Okay, how do you know when you’re in ketosis besides how you feel? You have to get a little meter. It’s about 60 bucks. Go to getketomojo.com. Getketomojo.com, pick up a meter and get some strips with it. And when your morning reading, it’s just a quick little blood prick. You don’t even feel it. Their machine is so quick, it’s amazing, and you’re above 0.5 on that reading, that means you’re in ketosis. The morning before you do anything is the best time to measure. So when you’re consistently above 0.5, blood ketones, you’re measuring something called beta hydroxybutyrate in the blood. When that goes above 0.5, you’re in ketosis.
That’s how you know. Then you might be 0.4, then back to 0.2 one day, 0.6 one day. But eventually, you’ll be consistently above 0.5. And when you’re intermittent fasting, it’s neat to measure in the morning. And then as the day goes on and you’re fasting, you’ll see that number. It should rise as you’re in that fasting mode. So if it’s 0.6 in the morning, by afternoon, maybe you’re 1.1. so anyways, that’s how you know you’re in ketosis. But the point I want to make is just drop your carbohydrates. And then here’s the best part, so you’re eating low carb in ketosis by Christmas, and then when you feast for the parties, and the fun food, it’s magic. You’re back into your intermittent fasting, you’re back into ketosis in between. Fat adapt, and so it controls your appetite, your body’s efficiently using fat, your energy, your brain’s working better because your ketones are up.
This is what my wife and I do and it’s not rocket science, folks. I may have thrown out some new terms here, diet variation, feast/famine cycling, ketosis. But listen to the show twice and you’ll get it down. You can go to drpompa.com, watch my cellular healing TV’s in the search, put ketosis, put intermittent fasting, put diet variation. You will find shows on all of these topics. But I’m telling you, you will want to enjoy your holiday, come out better than you are now, and still have fun, still eat all the food you love that you would normally feel guilty about, this is how you do it. But I’m going to give you the warning, when you step away from organic foods, you’re going to be exposed to glyphosate and other chemicals and toxins. You better add the cellular detox. You put these two things together folks, I’m telling you your life will change. And hopefully, you take it beyond Christmas and New Year. Plan that fast, fast with us in February and watch what happens when you put a five day fast together, whether it’s partial.
There’s even something called the fasting mimicking diet. I’ve done videos on it where literally they send you the food that you need for that day, the right chloric intake. Fasting mimicking diet, try that, too. But join us January, February for the long fast that’ll set your whole year up. And listen to Health Hunters Radio because I’m going to be educating you more on these topics. So Merry Christmas, happy New Year from me here, Dr. Pompa, at Health Hunters Radio. Thanks folks.
