MY REGIMEN on FASTING DAYS

  • Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are my FASTING days.
  • Sometimes I’ll fast the entire day (no food at all… just water, coffee and white and green tea).
  • Other times I’ll fast till 5 or 6 pm, then end my fast with a meal (with some berberine, to prevent mTOR activation)
  • On fasting days, I usually take a contrast (hot/cold) shower to activate my sirtuin genes, do some RED LIGHT theraphy, then do HIIT exercise on a stationary bike.  I’m not trying to build muscle on these days. So I try not to activate mTOR.  (MTOR is anabolic, which is great because it builds muscle, but it’s also pro-aging.) I set the bike to minimum resistance so that I can pedal as fast as humanly possible and get completely out of breath (three times). My goal is to create a temporary oxygen deficit to increase NAD and activate AMPK.

FASTING DAY SUPPLEMENTS

  • Some people don’t take supplements at all on fasting days. That’s their choice ––– more power to them. But I take a lot of ’em. The supplements I take are either powders or in cellulose capsules, so they are not adding any protein, fat or carbs. So they don’t break my fast. 
  • NOTE: Remember that I’m talking here about short (24-36 hour) fasts. When I do a prolonged (3-5 day) fast, I take a much smaller stack of supplements. If you’re curious why I take supplements when fasting, see the video at the bottom of the page.
