Fasting for health and longevity: from calorie restriction to intermittent fasting and the fasting-mimicking diet
with Michael Thomsen
Intermittent fasting diets are the most popular and fastest growing diets emerging as an attractive approach for improving health and longevity in humans. Healthcare practitioners need to know the history, mechanism of action and medical benefits of fasting and intermittent fasting diets in order to provide patients with informed guidance. This webinar presented by Michael Thomsen explores the benefits and approaches of fasting, including the German ‘Buchinger Fast’ - a 4–21 day fasting regime that is safe and well tolerated. Research shows that the fasting-mimicking has the potential to extend longevity, lower visceral fat, reduce cancer incidence, and rejuvenate the immune system.
In this webinar you will learn:
• The strategic use and significant benefits of intermittent fasting
• The reasons why alternate day fasting and 5:2 diets have failed to produce significant results
• How to administer and incorporate fasting into daily life
