Fasting is a regular topic on Zestology. Not eating for a certain length of time every day. There seems no doubt it's good for us. But for how long? How strict should we be? What's allowed and not allowed? I've delved deep into this stuff and I've still got more questions than answers.
So my friend Phil White is back to talk fasting for a very specific 17 hours a day. Rest assured I pepper him with questions about it, cos when you look at the promises and the benefits of fasting, it seems important to get it right...
- Cut cholesterol, reduce bacterial overgrowth, and lower toxins
- Start making lifestyle changes that lower body weight and BMI and reduce body fat
- Improve digestive issues like IBS, fatty liver disease, and acid reflux
- Boost physical and cognitive performance
- Break free from habitual and boredom-related eating
- Create a rich, fully engaged experience before, during, and after fasting
- Achieve many of the benefits of a 48-hour fast in less than half the time, while avoiding many of the risks of more extreme fasts
- Overcome food-related psychological and behavioral issues while turning destructive habits into healthy ones
- Reduce sugar dependence
- Achieve more restful and restorative sleep
- Use fasting to strengthen work-life balance, improve relationships, and focus on helping others
Okay I'm in. Listen on for more.
A chinwag with my old mate Dr. Stephen Simpson, all about focus and the problem of getting distracted by our phones. This is timely after I've probably spent a little too long instastorying this weekend.
Studies prove that there's more to distract us than ever before. It can be hard to put down the phone or switch off the laptop, and the constant little dopamine hits we receive from notifications, likes, emails and more have a seriously negative effect on our lives. Our brains are all over the place.
So Dr. Stephen Simpson and I have tackled this problem head on in today's podcast.
*Don't worry, after listening to this podcast you won't have your phone confiscated your smartphone for the next month. The idea is you can start to control your tech usage, rather than letting the tech control you.
