Autophagy & Intermittent Fasting: Activate Garbage Recycling and Cellular Remodeling

    Take Dr. Berg's Free Keto Mini-Course:
    Dr. Berg talks about the amazing health benefits of autophagy using intermittent fasting. Autophagy is the condition whereby the cells start to recycle damaged and garbage parts (defects) into basic elements thereby allowing the cells to remodel itself. The free fatty acids and free amino acids can then start to rejuvenate the skin, muscles, brain, heart and immune system. When you fast or do intermittent fasting, you trigger garbage recycling and cellular remodeling.
    Autophagy allows misfolded proteins (proteins that have shaped incorrectly) and coverts them to free amino acids. It is the accumulation of misfolded proteins that causes amyloids, which is the plaquing that develops in Alzheimers, diabetes, Parkinsons, atherosclerosis and all sorts of degenerative diseases.
    Intermittent fasting triggers autophagy, which is

    Ramadan is a blessing. For one month a year we clean our bodies by fasting from dawn to dusk. We are also encouraged to fast every Monday and Thursday of every week. When we muslims fast it’s easier because we don’t put ANY THING not even water in our stomach. Alhumdulilah

    Last week I did 48h fast, took a 24h break with one meal and did another 48h without planning it because I felt like my body was asking me to do it. I’m trying to intuitively fast as well as doing one meal a day (only dinner) that is keto. I’m trying to get used to this and take advantage of the benefits before I’m to slim, because I already lost all the weight I needed too (21 BMI now) I will continue to do keto and IF because I’ve never felt better about my health. Thank you Dr. Berg! You are a ☀️ ❤️

    I'm getting a lot of conflicting information about the fasting time required for your body to start the autophagy process. Some say once you deplete your glucose stores, so 12 or so hours, and others say 48-72 hours. Can someone provide me with an actual study that confirms a specific amount of time?

      They don't know. That's why there's no definitive scientific answer. But then a bit of common sense would imply that humans were not by design ... designed to go without eating for 3 days just to get autophogy benefits. With the amazing benefits being seen with IF it probably means that it works well before the 48-72 hour mark.

    Thanks you Dr. Berg! I just recently switched from 16:8 to 23:1 OMAD, but I don’t do keto. I have lots of questions. Is this enough to get my body into autophagy? And some days I can hardly make it to 23 hrs does it get easier? I drink green tea with mint, water, and black coffee during my fasting hours, does this break my fast or break autophagy? And lastly how many calories should I be consuming? I don’t count calories since switching to OMAD but just for the fun of it I entered my meal tonight into my fitness pal and it was only 952 calories. Im stuffed and can’t imagine eating any more right now. I had 2 baked chicken breasts, sautéed yellow squash and zucchini in a tbsp of butter, a sweet potato with 1 tbsp butter and cinnamon, a big salad with raspberry vinaigrette and I splurged and ate a chocolate pudding cup.

    All these things that I am learning now. There is something called "Langan" in Ayurveda, which was mentioned thousands of years ago in Indian scriptures. "Langan param aushadham" meaning Fasting is cure of all disease, more sever the disease longer should be fasting, but in Ayurveda it says fasting should be "nirjal" meaning dry fasting so not even water should be taken, that is when the true healing of body happens.

      +fred_lacroix -Why on earth you find it necessary to degrade an entire group of people during a science/health video i don't understand.. It seems your hatred of Muslims means more to you then any flaw you might find in their practice. The way you describe it they eat two meals a day very far apart, giving lots of time to lower insulin and burn fat in between. Is that not basically the intermittent fasting many of these channels promote? and what about the OMAD diet eating one meal a day? I doubt you would feel such disdain towards some white male bodybuilder who "pigs out" every night during dinner, after a fast. There are many different types of fasts with different purposes. Besides I doubt the Muslim practice has anything to do with autophagy anyway, it's just part of their religion. You do realize different people can live different ways and it actually does not impact your existence at all? Who cares how, or why they fast. Its their own business and that hate you carry only hurts yourself. People watch these channels to better themselves, not to hate on others.

    I am a 65 year old male who has eaten paleo since 2012. The benefits to that choice were immediate. Almost exactly one year ago, I read about intermittent fasting and tried the 20:4 protocol as an experiment on myself, figuring I could go back to my former pattern if I started feeling worse. ( I use my body every day in my full time occupation) Much to my surprise, I started having more energy and sleeping better less than a week after starting the 20:4 intermittent fasting protocol. My mind is very clear and my brain function has actually increased since my thirties! Also as the months passed, I noticed that I wasn't getting many colds and flus, or if I did , my body would process them in 3 to 6 hours. The explanation in this video about the process of autophagy makes perfect sense to me and I feel great every day, knowing that my system is cleaning and building itself. This process is not possible if food is constantly being loaded in from the top end. The factory is overloaded, and cannot perform the COMPLETE process of digestion. Try it, it works.
