A Masterclass on Fasting

With Dave Asprey

These days, we hear a lot about fasting. Intermittent fasting, time-restricted eating, and water fasting are just some of the many terms being thrown around in support of better health. Which one is best? What does it all mean for our longevity, brain health, and overall wellness?

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I dive deep into the topic of fasting with Dave Asprey. We talk about how fasting can troubleshoot our biology, boost our energy, and decrease our risk of disease. We also discuss how there is no one-size-fits-all approach to fasting, how to avoid the fasting trap, and biohacks for making fasting less painful, more pleasurable, and above all more enriching.
