Fasting To Empower Health

A State of Continuous Eating

Fasting, What Is It?

  • Fasting: To abstain from food and beverage
  • Biological Fasting:
  • To not consume food that triggers cellular Food Sensing Pathways: PKA, IGF-1 & mTOR
  • Sensing Pathways are triggered up to 24 hours after the last meal
  • Biological fasting begins 24 hours from your last meal
  • Misconceptions
  • “Juice fasting is considered fasting because it does not contain solid food”
