Solenn and I were looking for a new challenge this year. So we decided to do a 7 day fast. The premise is simple, 7 full days, no food, just water. NOTHING ELSE. No juices, tea, coffee, broths, vitamins, etc… If it’s not just water, it’s not a water fast 🙂

Some people say it’s good for you, some say it’s bad. I think we are smart enough to know when something isn’t working. So if you feel like this isn’t for you, don’t do it.

Warning: Please don’t do this if you are underweight, have an eating disorder or have any medical conditions. Talk to your doctor first.

Before you try this, read up about fasting here:



Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune system


Fasting-like diet turns the immune system against cancer




And then the negative articles on fasting. It’s always good to know both side:



So should you do it? It’s really up to you. This is just my experience with it.

The Fast Guide to the Fast Diet – for people too lazy to read the book

You can get the book here: http://amzn.to/11oFfND

This video was prepared to help members of our family and friends support group to succeed on the 5:2 fast diet. It constitutes my point of view on the diet and is not medical advice for heaven’s sake. It was created as a demonstration of what the PowToons online animation package can achieve.

Keto vs Fasting: Which Diet is Better For Your Lifestyle: Thomas DeLauer


Weight Loss and Insulin

In ketosis, body becomes deprived of glucose and turns to burning fat for fuel

When we eat little foods that supply us with carbs, we release less insulin – w/ less insulin the body doesn’t store extra energy in the form of fat for later use

Intermittent fasting has been found to decrease blood levels of insulin

In a fed state, insulin is elevated so you store excess calories in fat cells. In the presence of insulin, the burning of fat is halted, while the body burns glucose instead

In a fasted state, insulin is low. the body starts mobilizing stored body fat from your fat cells and burning this fat for energy (instead of glucose)

Constantly eating keeps your insulin spiked, which slows your metabolism


Acute fasting directly influences the stability of neuronal circuits, wiring that dictates the flow of information in the brain and nervous system.

The cellular stress and lack of nutrition, due to fasting, blocks the synaptic activity of neurons that normally occurs in the brain, brain slows down

Sounds bad, but may be beneficial for brain health -overactive synaptic activity has been associated with diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s


Lifestyle vs. Diet

Fasting is more to do with When you eat and ketosis is more to do with What you eat

I.F. can be utilized everyday, or a couple times per week, more of a “diet” while ketosis is more of a lifestyle

In a ketogenic state, it is critical that you do not consume too many carbs, or protein – a state that must be carefully maintained

Fasting can be as easy as not “doing” something and you can enter a fasted state by simply not eating for 16-20 hours – it takes a bit longer to enter a ketogenic state

With fasting you will likely still consume the same foods you have always done, albeit, less and later in the day

Ketosis requires you to change what you buy and consume, since most people aren’t accustomed to having 75% of their diet consist of fats and only 5% carbs


4 calories in a gram of carbohydrate or protein
9 calories in a gram of fat

On a ketogenic diet people usually eat less – fat is a lot more satiating than carbs

While fasting, consuming all your calories at the end of the day, makes you feel satiated quicker → eat less

Fasting can be a struggle – can struggle to go 16-20 hours without eating

Fasting vs. Eating Less: What’s the Difference? (Science of Fasting)

This is about the drastic physiological differences between fasting and eating less

*NOTE* One of the key things in being able to fast in a healthy matter is entering the state of ketosis – that is, switching your metabolism from burning carbohydrate to burning fat. *Considering most people have been burning carbohydrate their whole lives* this can make fasting a challenge. Upton Sinclair recommends doing quite long fasts – 12 days, but you may want to work your way up to longer fasts. Unless you are relatively keto adapted (or have experience with fasting of course), it’s important that you take precautions while doing a fast. Fasting isn’t inherently dangerous, *but diving into fasting when your body is in no way geared for it can be.* I recommend doing more research before doing longer fasts. “The Complete Guide to Fasting” (http://amzn.to/2tQjxXa) is a good book to start with.
As Tim Ferriss puts it: Please don’t do anything stupid and kill yourself. It would make us both quite unhappy.

Just in case I should also say that of course you need to balance fasting with eating – You need to survive off of something. I have been doing intermittent fasting the past year (22 hours fasted, 2 hours eating – you can widen it to 16/8, which still provides great benefits) and will fast for a couple days every other month or so. Several other people have recommend a routine like this – Tim Ferriss recommends doing a 3 day fast once per month and a 7 day fast once per year.
Also make sure you’re getting enough fat, protein, micronutrients and fiber to maintain a healthy weight and healthy body – *excessive* fasting can be very dangerous.

[BLINKIST] Blinkist is an app I’ve been using lately to discover new books and review the ones I’ve already read. It gives you the key points in text or audio form from tons of different non-fiction books. Since I’m always going through so many books to get these done, it’s very useful to get me exposed to more concepts beforehand to know if it’s worth my time to buy and read through that particular book.
