Fasting Roles In Weight Loss

Fasting Roles In Weight Loss

Hi, I’m Dr. Richard Jacoby. As a health advocate and author, I often discuss fasting’s role in weight loss.

Many wonder if fasting is healthy. My short answer? Yes, if done correctly.

Let’s look back 3.2 million years.

Our ancestor, Australopithecus afarensis (or Lucy), lived without regular meals.

Lucy was a carnivore. She ate irregularly, adapting her body to periods without food.

Carnivores like Lucy broke down meat into ketones, not glucose. Ketones and glucose affect our bodies differently.

Unlike today’s high-sugar diets, our bodies were designed for low-sugar diets.

Excess sugar, including carbohydrates and high fructose corn syrup, is a primary cause of many diseases.

Eating over 4 grams of sugar a day can damage your nerves. This has been scientifically verified.

The consequences? Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetic neuropathy, and autism, to name a few.
