How Fasting Can Slow Aging And Optimize Health



Fasting has gotten a lot of attention in recent years and for good reason. In addition to supporting better aging, fasting has also been found beneficial for autoimmunity, gut issues, reducing belly fat, Alzheimer’s, and much more. While many people associate fasting with restricting eating for long periods of time, there are actually many styles with different timing, which can make fasting a much more approachable practice than you might think. And when done the right way, you won’t even feel hungry.

In this minisode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Frank Lipman and Dave Asprey about how fasting works, how to identify the type of fasting that is best for you, and special considerations around fasting for women.
