Publisher's Summary

To summarize it all, if you want a healthy, long, energetic, and disease-free life, you need to start fasting. The earlier you try this, the better off you are going to be. In today’s world, if you go against convention, you can almost guarantee health and longevity. It is the opposite of how it should be. Doctors are supposed to help us get better and not make us drug-addicted health disasters.

Health starts with trusting the body to do its job of healing and repairing. You must let go of your regular diet to let the body rest and get better. The best healing happens when there is no food in the stomach. That is why fasting has been a centuries-long cure to various diseases.

It has been drilled into our brains that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is just not true. The most important meal is the one that causes the least amount of inflammation and gives the body necessary nutrients to heal. A fast can be used as a reset to start your health journey all over. It helps reset the gut microbiome imbalance that almost all people have to some degree. You can do intermittent fasts, prolonged fasts, and dry fasts, but the best is a combination of all of them. Gut health is the root cause of almost all chronic illnesses. It will usually have some relation to every kind of disease. It is like the second brain, and the microbiome is like a creature in itself.

Gut health is the direct root cause for all autoimmune conditions like psoriasis and eczema. It has been linked with the world’s biggest killers, heart disease and cancer. A leaky gut or an “intestine with holes” is what starts the downfall. Toxic chemicals leak out into the bloodstream and cause havoc everywhere.

When you are doing fasting as a gut reset, you should avoid liquid fasts. You can do 18-to-24-hour fasts every day for a week and follow that with keto for some days to get better results. When you try out fasting for some time, it is unlikely that you will want to stop ever. You can do intermittent fasting for life. It can be done three to four times a week. Prolonged fasts can be done once a month. Liquid fasts can be done to ease you into the process of fasting. And dry fasts are for pros who want to extract the most value for their effort.

That’s about it. You can go on the links provided throughout the audiobook to learn more about those specific topics. And lastly, it is a matter of personal choice which type of fast you want to do and what type of food you want to eat. Something that might make you better will make the other person sick.

Try new things, and use your common sense.

Excellent audiobook

I’m planning to do regular fasting, maybe once a week do a 24 hrs one and perhaps every few months if so do a long one, it’d be great if I could extend it to 5 days next time, but I will have to see how I’m able to handle to it. Excellent audiobook.

Have Water for Breakfast

I’ve just finished 1 day fast and it was pretty ok, much better than I thought I would handle it, but I think because I did prepare well 2 weeks prior and even went for long walks during the fasting but of course, I felt quite weak but once breathing fresh air and seeing the amazing sunsets, it boosted me up a bit.

I enjoyed every part of it

I enjoyed every part of it and just discarded the parts that wouldn’t apply to me as I follow a plant-based diet and don’t take chemical prescriptions but only natural medicine.

EXCELLENT

Encyclopedic knowledge on how to lose weight but crucially, whilst not really compromising what you want to eat which I absolutely love! Everything was presented crystal clearly, there was more than the money's worth in value with some positivity stuff to help along the way - and I'll certainly be paying attention to the author's future works - EXCELLENT!

Great audible

I previously bought the author's book on the benefits of water and fasting and when I saw the bundle including another book too I HAD to take it. To put it shortly both books are filled with all the information and methods you could want + more, I have actually managed to lose a few lockdown pounds following this and the best part is I didn't have to change my diet...couldn't recommend this enough

Well done!

This audible is wonderful, it gives you all the information you will need on how to do an extended fast (between 7 and 14 days). Also discusses who is and is not suitable for the fast. Well done!
