Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered about the secret to living a long, full life, free from disease, and other ailments associated with old age?

Then keep reading.

Many of us see our ancestors as superhumans that were lucky enough to be strong, agile, and enjoy life. But there was nothing inherently special about them! They only knew to abide by an ancient rule of nature. Nature, in turn, rewarded them with strength, agility, and health.

These days, however, many of us go about life without much regard to what we eat and how we eat. It is little wonder our bodies become easy targets for all sort of diseases and, worst of all, we do not get to enjoy a long life.

The good news is that you can tap into the age long tradition that helped our forefathers. You can equip your body with the right resources to be strong, resistant to diseases, and thrive against all odds. You can get rid of toxins from your body and take practical steps to make your body stronger. 

That is the aim of this manual that introduces the concept of Autophagy.

The best part is that you are not ingesting any drug or following some strict diet to activate this in your body. This audiobook will open you up to tested principles through which you can activate autophagy in your body. 

Some of the knowledge you will find in this manual includes:

  • The concepts of microautophagy and macroautophagy
  • How to activate autophagy via exercise, fasting, and ketosis
  • The role of water fasting in reaching ketosis
  • Misconceptions about autophagy debunked
  • How long and how to fast before autophagy sets in
  • Lifestyle and food choices that will help activate autophagy
  • Autophagy mistakes to avoid
  • And so much more!

This manual is for everyone who values their life and health. It is for the young and old alike who value healthy living and would like to keep their bodies and immune systems resilient to all forms of disease attack. The teachings of this manual are your ticket to a long, good life, without the fear of your body failing you any time soon.

Technical and practical guide to optimize health

This is a book for nutrition nerds and those curious about the latest research for optimizing health and longevity (health span). Autophagy is the metabolic process of cellular repair and rejuvenation. Throughout our evolutionary history humans have experienced intermittent periods of food scarcity. Our bodies adapted to recycle damaged proteins and cell material during these times in order to provide nutrition for the body. It is natural and intuitive that the body would reuse and recycle nutrients within itself during times of food scarcity, just as our behavior changes to reuse, conserve, and recycle when other materials in our lives are scarce. The body goes into the autophagy cell repair pathway whenever blood insulin hormone and mTOR levels are low for a sustained period (1-3 days depending on an individual’s diet and metabolic state). When food is plentiful our cells readily divide and damaged cell material is not recycled because the body has excess nutrients. The build up of cellular damage over time eventually leads to the diseases of ageing (heart disease, insulin resistance, neurological diseases, cancer, etc). Carefully preparing the body to enter extended fasting periods (typically 3-5 days) allows autophagy to repair and recycle damaged cells and amino acids leading to remarkable health benefits. Doing extended water fasts on a monthly or quarterly basis is optimal.

The book gives a broad summary of the 3 categories of autophagy as well as the metabolic pathway for autophagy vs. the typical insulin/cell growth pathway. It also provides a good summary of several types of intermittent fasting, and in depth overview of extended water fasting, along with practical guidance for fasting safely and provides the optimal conditions to trigger autophagy. Those on ketogenic diets will enter autophagy more quickly and should have a much easier time fasting since their metabolisms are already adapted to burn fat and produce ketone bodies as fuel for cells.

This book left some unanswered questions for me such as the benefits of each of the 3 types of autophagy and how each type is triggered or if all 3 are triggered together. The research also isn’t clear on the rate at which autophagy occurs (if at all) during intermittent fasting. My own experience tells me autophagy occurs at some level in the body during intermittent 16-20 hour fasting but the book stated that the ability to measure the rate of autophagy at the system level has not yet been discovered.

An absolute necessity book for all.

I liked the in-depth descriptions of the subject of autophagy through Intermittent Fasting and how diet, exercise, and sleep are related.

Best Ever Autophagy Guide

Excellent source of knowledge about Autophagy on how to keep your body in great shape. I particularly like how Patricia Cook does not teach to reach for supplements but concentrates on decent eating habits to get the daily nutrients needed.

All things considered, an exceptional book.

This is a fascinating book, one of it's kind. Seemingly the best book I've listened to in a long time about Detox Your Body and Boost Your Energy.

Find out fasting work so good.

Another description from the base. Perfect book. I do recommend watching some YouTube videos because it will help you understand the book the theme better.

The substance of this book was so great and clear

Patricia Cook has researched autophagy extensively. He has combined his research and his personal experience into a one of a species book. It would take several other books to combine this information.
If you want to get to the nitty-gritty of autophagy, health; This is the book.

Fasting - science - autophagy

It all around steadily hinders the method, impacts, and science behind Autophagy. It is the main asset I have discovered that essentially covers everything regarding Practical Autophagy and in doing as such ties everything together, which makes it a lot more manageable to grasp and gives a ton of understanding into how the body utilizes, acknowledges and profits by this procedure.

A decent accumulation of simple to discover data.

I took in such a large number of flourishing things from this book. The creator portrayed every item in all respects, obviously with some appropriate clarifications — such a magnificent book. So, I highly recommend this excellent one book.

Terrible

The narration was SO BAD I couldn't even finish this book. Awful. Such a shame as I thought the subject would be interesting, but will have to learn about it somewhere else,
