EP205: How to Lose Weight, Live Longer and Stay Sharper with Fasting Expert, Siim Land


Fasting is easily one of the most powerful dietary strategies we have today. 

Research has shown it can improve weight loss, detoxification, brain function, and promote longevity. It’s also been shown to decrease side effects of chemotherapy, reduce the risk of cancer in animal models, and I’ve even noticed it improves my mood dramatically.

BUT, there are many things you need to know before you jump in if you want to succeed. 

The longest fast on record, for example, was 382 days completed by a Scottish man named Angus Barbieri. He lived on soda, vitamins, water, and coffee and lost 276 pounds. 

Obviously, that is not where you begin. 

(He was monitored by his doctors the whole time - do NOT try this at home!)

In this podcast, you'll learn how you can still eat everyday and reap the benefits with the advanced (yet practical) strategies from best selling author, speaker, anthropologist and biohacker, Siim Land.
