Story at-a-glance -

  • Research indicates that nature selects underfed species for extended life-span and vice versa – it shortens the life expectancy of overfed species. Humans are no exception
  • Extreme intermittent fasting induces even stronger rejuvenating effects on cells and tissues than those coming from mild fasting or underfeeding; apparently due to the beneficial effects of extreme energy depletion
  • Under conditions of energy depletion, organisms seem supercharged for survival
  • Empirical evidence indicates that exercise while fasting is notably more effective than fasting alone (or exercise alone) in depleting glycogen
  • Pre-workout meals that are high glycemic or loaded with simple carbs shatter your ability to deplete energy. Coffee, cocoa, green tea, and pasture raised grass-fed whey on the other hand contain useful pre-workout nourishment
