Hey, Dr. David Jockers here. And today I’m going to tell you what happens in your body when you do a 24-hour fast. What that means is when you eat a meal, let’s say you ate lunch on Wednesday at 12:00 and you finished at 1:00, and then you fast till, let’s say 12 or 1:00 the next day. So it’s in a sense, it’s one meal and roughly 23, 24-hour period. What’s happening in your body when that happens? Well, first off, for the first four to six hours or so, your body is burning the energy you took from your last meal. So the first four to six hours, you’re just breaking down the fats, the proteins, the carbohydrates, and particularly using the carbohydrates for energy. Some of the dietary fats that you consume, you’re going to use those for energy as well. The proteins you’re usually using to make new cellular complexes, new enzymes, and things like that and regenerate muscle tissue.

Wow, Dr. Jockers really dives deep into the science of fasting! It’s fascinating to hear about the various stages our body goes through during a 24-hour fast, especially the shift from using glycogen to fat as a fuel source. The explanation about how fasting impacts the brain, particularly the balance of neurotransmitters and reduction of inflammation, is super interesting. Also, the concept of autophagy and mitochondrial health was eye-opening – it’s like giving your cells a mini detox and reboot. The gut microbiome part was a bit complex, but it’s intriguing to think that fasting can help balance gut bacteria. His personal routine of fasting and breaking the fast with exercise and a nutrient-rich meal sounds like a well-thought-out strategy. It’s definitely motivating to hear about the potential health benefits. I’m curious about trying a 24-hour fast now, but it seems wise to start slowly, especially for someone not used to fasting. Thanks for sharing this insightful video, Dr. Jockers!
