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

    Dr. Berg, you have said the solution is Education (health n nutrition), you should aim really high and push this to go as mainstream as possible. Jordan B Peterson is thinking about starting a university, coursework based on your teachings would be great there! And in every medical class... high shcool and primary school. Also please talk to us about David Sinclair and his longevity ideas (Resveratrol and NMN).

    Basically this recently discovered hidden body mechanism called AUTOPHAGY proves once again that this magnificent DESIGN OF LIFE is not an accident of time but the product of an intentional INTELLIGENT DESIGNER or CREATOR ...terminology which I use that has no religious overtones.
    I refer to this incredible " re-cycling " and garbage collection function as being like the SELF - CLEAN CYCLE of a stove. AMAZING
    What a masterpiece of design our CREATOR has given us.
    I am a trial lawyer of thirty years and an experienced alternative medical researcher accustomed to evaluating FACTS and EVIDENCE in both worlds. I have spent thousands of hours looking for ALTERNATIVE sciences and the testimonials of doctors and ordinary people who have identified various NEW and ALTERNATIVE methodologies. From the ocean of information, much of which was useless, I have come across numerous exciting discoveries which have very promising potential to better deal with catastrophic diseases and CANCER. Some of the more compelling ones are various forms of OXYGEN THERAPY and ROYAL RIFE radio frequency therapy....but I only learned about AUTOPHAGY a few days accident.
    I was upset that even someone who does this as an AMATEUR did not easily find this out till now. This demonstrates how the public is not properly advised and informed even about NOBEL prize winning breakthroughs....because it would destroy the mainstream pharmaceutical industry .
    FASTING has been known for a long time to be beneficial but it took the 2016 NOBEL PRIZE winning chemist YOSHINORI OHSUMI to identify and describe this self-healing body mechanism. I tried this for the first time two days ago and fasted for 36 ours. It was very easy and I had no hunger pains.
    Let us all spread thew word about this incredible self-healing phenomenon of the body because it makes so much sense, confirms for me the existence of an INTELLIGENT DESIGNER and it may provide a completely new methodology to deal with CANCER

    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.

    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.
