Hi everyone its Reena Jadhav and today we’re talking about fasting why?
Because it’s everywhere you can’t read the news today without coming across something around fasting whether it’s intermittent fasting or of course a couple of different kinds.
So here to tell us the truth about fasting is Dr. Joel Kahn
00:19
Joel Kahn:
It’s a very very exciting topic that wasn’t part of my language 510 years ago and never has been a part of cardiology
language to this day but woah strong science I mean this is not new age science …..is like NIH funded research that
00:42
We can improve our life extend their life avoid heart disease and other illnesses using fasting including cancer diabetes so if the NIH just announced this weekend they’re putting an extra ten million dollars into a fasting program at University of Southern California may be we can talk about it right now
01:03
Reena Jadhav
 So what are the different kinds of fasting and why does it work well?
01:07
Dr. Joel Kahn
You know if you’re a
scientist you say fasting is not eating
01:10
for more than 36 hours that but most of
01:12
us are not talking about that kind of
01:15
period in some well there is a tradition
01:18
going back a hundred years of using
01:20
water fasting not a lot of published
01:23
data but actually nothing but water
01:25
lying in bed not very active there are
01:28
centers that use this to treat all kinds
01:30
of serious illnesses from heart disease
01:32
the diabetes obesity to cancer to
01:34
connective tissue
01:35
lupus kind of cases take a look at a
01:38
place called True North in Santa Rosa
01:40
California if you want to learn more
01:42
about that I’ve had no experience doing
01:44
it for long water fast or being part of
01:47
one but I know people that have and feel
01:49
quite remarkable during it there are
01:51
people are used it as a weight-loss tool
01:53
have to be very careful you may get weak
01:55
you may lose muscle mass if you’re
01:57
elderly I would be very cautious so what
02:00
else is there there’s something called
02:02
time restricted feeding that’s an idea
02:04
that from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. my
02:07
kitchens closed my pantry is closed
02:09
some people extend that beyond 12 hours
02:11
you know a league dinner at 7 p.m. I
02:14
again to 11 a.m. so that stretches it
02:16
out to about 16 hours and try to eat 2
02:19
or 3 meals within eight hours these can
02:22
seem to Duan drop the number of calories
02:24
a day you eat which is consistently in
02:27
animal models the fewer calories a day
02:29
you eat to a point the longer you live
02:32
if you’re an animal if you want to take
02:34
a rabbit or a mouse or a earthworm and
02:36
you want it to live longer than its mate
02:38
in the cage you just feed it less a live
02:40
longer why because we think when we are
02:44
stressed by decreased calories body
02:47
turns on protective and reparative
02:50
mechanisms that extra make our bodies
02:52
younger and more able to heal and
02:57
deal with stress and that’s really why
02:59
all this excitement is going on about
03:01
fasting in England there’s something
03:03
called the 5:2 diet or the fast diet by
03:06
dr. Michael Mosley two days a week
03:08
Monday and Thursday you don’t eat much
03:10
maybe 500 calories a day the other five
03:14
days a week you eat a healthy
03:15
Mediterranean or plant-based or maybe
03:17
even a paleo clean diet and that’s
03:20
helped a lot of people but here we go
03:23
the real excitement
03:24
it comes from an author and a scientist
03:27
is a book I’d recommend anybody consider
03:30
reading I have it all over my office
03:31
many copies dr. Longo is a PhD at the
03:35
University of Southern California book
03:37
came on in January 2018 longevity diet
03:40
he’s been studying both why we age get
03:43
sick get old and Ken fasting interrupts
03:46
that and he’s gone with a unique diet
03:48
plan called the fasting mimicking diet
03:51
FMD so five days in a row this is
03:54
totally different than anybody anything
03:56
else in the world is doing five days in
03:58
a row once a month that means 25 days
04:01
you eat your healthy Mediterranean plant
04:03
may be familiar that I’ve enrolled you
04:06
drop your calories the first days 1100
04:09
the second day through 50 or 800
04:12
calories a day if you have to calculate
04:14
it you don’t because all the foods in a
04:16
box you literally buy this program from
04:18
the University of Southern California
04:20
it’s called PROLON  and the
04:23
ingredients in the Box happen to be
04:25
plant-based which was a victory
04:27
having to be real food not candy rip mix
04:32
that you might get insured a hospital
04:34
and our very low and protein low in
04:36
sugar and relatively high in whole fats
04:40
from olives and nuts in complex
04:42
carbohydrates very carefully researched
04:44
and picked my doctor Longo to slow down
04:47
aging pathways and turn on reparative
04:49
pathways
04:50
he started to experiment with this more
04:52
than a decade ago
04:53
every animal model lives longer every
04:56
animal mile show signs of healing you
04:58
study this in cancer panels there’s
05:00
better recovery from chemotherapy and
05:02
response in animal models I stressed
05:04
brain diseases multiple sclerosis
05:07
dementia on in that a year ago a hundred
05:11
patient human trial was published doing
05:13
this show that you get thinner around
05:15
the waist
05:16
it was fat around the waist you don’t
05:18
lose muscle blood sugar blood pressure
05:19
blood cholesterol calm down inflammation
05:21
comes down and maybe most remarkably
05:24
something called your stem cells start
05:26
coming out of your bone marrow to go
05:28
anywhere in the body and look for places
05:29
to heal a bad hip a bad brain whatever
05:32
it is so I learned to this I’ve done
05:35
this many months over the last 15 months
05:38
now I’ve had parts of my body they were
05:40
aching like plantar fasciitis just
05:43
stopped aching less water on us plus
05:45
blood values plus blood pressure down
05:47
and many of my patients have seen the
05:49
same it’s actually literally at a
05:51
commercially available box it’s a little
05:53
pricey but we tend to spend on average
05:55
thirty to forty dollars a day on food in
05:58
this country this Food Program which a
06:00
science base is just a touch more than
06:02
that oh boy the results have been
06:04
pleasing so the fasting mimicking diet
06:06
by dr. Valter Longo I think it says
06:09
right there fasting mimicking dies is
06:12
known as prologue again if you’re in a
06:14
rut and you’re trying hard and you’ve
06:17
changed your diet you’re trying to work
06:18
out you’re trying to sleep you’re trying
06:20
to breathe I know men think and you
06:22
still feel like you’re up against the
06:24
wall and want to break through fasting
06:27
in general maybe there’s time restricted
06:29
feeding or going 1314 12 hours without
06:32
eating every day is a good schedule but
06:36
this five-day program whether you do
06:37
just one month or as dr. Londo would
06:39
recommend three months in a row
06:41
and see what the filtered them in three
06:44
months could be the thing that you know
06:45
put you where you want to be weight wise
06:47
information wise energy wise blood
06:50
pressure-wise general health wise not
06:52
exactly a detox program much more
06:55
science than a detox program this is
06:58
literally the hottest and most supported
07:03
science oozing food truly is a tool to
07:06
make our bodies better almost sounds
07:10
like a reset diet right like it’s
07:12
literally getting your body look like
07:13
that he was actually dr. Longo will say
07:15
this really does reset your metabolism
07:18
and you’re not just getting benefits for
07:20
five days you’re getting benefits for
07:22
much longer their study their research
07:24
study checked people six months after
07:27
finishing the program there still were
07:29
measurable improvements now how many
07:32
diseases will we be able to treat with
07:34
this right now none and we don’t talk
07:37
about treating disease or this program
07:40
when it’s being studied so there are
07:42
ongoing trials in cancer multiple
07:44
sclerosis dementia type-2 diabetes until
07:48
the studies are done this is really just
07:50
a regeneration rejuvenation sort of play
07:54
but maybe one day
07:55
not that long down the road we’ll talk
07:57
about using this particular program
07:58
actually treated disease rather than
08:01
pills rather than intravenous
08:03
