Ordinary Vegan Podcast #22: What Everyone Needs to Know About Intermittent Fasting w/ Dr. Joel Kahn
"During the fasting-mimicking diet, cortisone is produced and that initiates a killing of autoimmune cells. This process also leads to the production of new healthy cells.” Valter Longo, cell biologist and Director of the USC Longevity Institute New research concludes that a diet mimicking the effects of fasting should be further examined as a treatment for auto-immune diseases like multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, memory, longevity, weight-loss and type-2 diabetes. I was introduced to intermittent fasting during lectures from some of the leading doctors in plant-based nutrition on the 2017 Holistic Holiday at Sea. What I learned was intermittent fasting appeared to be a new exciting, healthy approach to eating that could benefit anyone suffering from many chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis and even cancer. I was skeptical because I dislike any restrictive diets that depend on calorie counting, but don’t let the word fasting fool you. What I discovered is that there are many ways to practice intermittent fasting and it is more about calorie reduction than depriving yourself of food. This podcast is what you need to know before you start skipping meals. Today's guest, Dr. Joel Kahn, is one of the world's top cardiologists and he believes that plant-based nutrition is the most powerful source of preventative medicine. He also believes in the power of intermittent fasting. Please join me and Dr. Kahn to discuss how intermittent fasting can benefit your health, your longevity, and even your memory. Learn why intermittent fasting affects your stem cells and why stem cells are important. Last but not least, discover the different ways you can practice healthy intermittent fasting.
