This is what she advises on the first day:
DAY 1- AUTOPHAGY FASTING
Welcome to Day 1!
If you are joining us in doing the autophagy fast remember there are 4 major rules to follow to maximize autophagy.
1. Fast 17 hours
2. Eat fat first
3. Keep protein under 20 grams
4. Eat carbs last, total under 50 net carbs.
So today, let's talk about what the length of your fast does for your health.
It is around 13 hours in a fasted state that your body switches over to burn fat for energy. 17 hours is the autophagy sweet spot.
The longer you stay in that fasted state the more fat you will burn & the more autophagy will happen.
Autophagy hits a maximum rate at around 72 hours.
Your insulin staying low for an extended period signals two major processes in your body:
2. Burning stored fat
Here's the really cool thing about Autophagy Fasting. When you break your 17 hour fast with fat, it will have very little effect on your insulin levels and therefore keep you in a fasted state.
And for those of you who have been fasting for a while, you can go longer than 17 hours if you choose.
Many of you have messaged me about all the weight you've lost since implementing fasting into your life!
The longer you fast, the more you force your body to heal.
It's one of the coolest examples of the inner wisdom of your body!
