25 hour fasting

Hello Wonderful Brooke!

Do you do 24 hour fasts for health? Autophagy? If so, how often? What do you recommend?

I’m still on my weight loss journey, 40 pounds down, 12 more to go and I don’t want to lose the last pounds by doing something I’m not willing to do forever. Per Dr. Fung, it sounds like longer fasting periods are for the health benefits, not weight loss. I currently do a 17-18 hour fast daily, very easily.

Dr. Fung’s information says that most people never really know when they are in autophagy, but it’s usually after 2-3 days of fasting. Do you believe that autophagy can occur after a 24 hour fast if one is fat adapted?

Thank you so much!!!
