QUOTES:
“You don’t have to experience pain and hunger to get the benefits of fasting and to go into fasting.” [5:04]
“Fasting the same way everyday is bad for you. Because it doesn’t lend your body the idea of metabolic flexibility. It’s like, “Oh, I live in a world where there’s almost never enough food.” So have breakfast every now and then…” [24:08]
“When most people hear fasting, all they hear is, “I’ll starve therefore, I’ll die,” and then they blank out to it. No, this is about more energy and it’s about more clarity and less time wasted.” [41:53]
