Everything you ever wanted to know about fasting, intermittent fasting and longer fasting.

I've been intermittent fasting for a while now and definitely notice the benefits energy-wise. But I'm a proper fasting lightweight compared to today's Zestology guest.

Fasting is a real theme on Zestology, so many experts seem to recommend the benefits of not eating every once in a while. So I got in touch with Loren Lockman. He is the director of the TanglewoodwellnessCenter.com and has been coaching people since 1992, and supervising water only fasts since 1997.

Loren Lockman has guided more than 2000 people through water-only fasts averaging 24-25 days and has seen countless "miracles" over the years.

Questions on this podcast include:

  • What is fasting?

  • What is a water fast?

  • How long does a fast need to be to be truly effective?

  • What starts happening on a fast after 12 hours, 24 hours, 2 days, 3 days, 4 days and 5 days?

  • Can serious illnesses be treated by fasting?

  • Is fasting dangerous?

  • How to do fasting correctly?

  • Are you allowed coffee with a fast?

  • Are you allowed tea with a fast?

  • Are you allowed juice with a fast?

  • And much more.

There’s also lots of detail on the longer fasts that Loren helps people to carry out at his clinic in Costa Rica, The Tanglewood Wellness Center. Important note: always consult your doctor or health practitioner before fasting, starting a fast or making any change to your diet.
