Your Fasting Questions Answered with Dr Jason Fung - Episode 2241

Fitness Confidential with Vinnie Tortorich

Episode 2241 - On this Friday's show, Vinnie Tortorich speaks with Dr. Jason Fung and gets your fasting questions answered, including why CICO doesn't work, the "dawn effect", hormones, and much more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2022/11/your-fasting-questions-answered-dr-jason-fung-episode-2241 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS YOUR FASTING QUESTIONS ANSWERED Vinnie welcomes Dr. Jason Fung back to the show and they chat about misconceptions about what fasting is. (2:00) Dr. Fung explains what fasting is and how CICO (calories in, calories out) is an epic disaster. Weight loss isn't about calories, it's about hormones like insulin and allowing your cells to work. Vinnie asks Dr. Fung about thermodynamics and CICO. (9:00) Thermodynamics has nothing to do with weight gain; it applies to physics, but not physiology. If CICO worked, then all of the "diet businesses" (like Weight Watchers) would be out of business. They explain that fasting affects hormones, which is why eating throughout the day is bad advice. Vinnie and Dr. Fung discuss intermittent fasting as well as medical fasting: what it is, how it works, and some of its benefits. (29:00) They clarify whether or not fasting affects muscle growth. They also discuss what is happening in a "dawn effect". (40:40) Vinnie brings up measuring ketones and Dr. Fung's thoughts on that. They switch to discussing the hormones ghrelin and leptin, what each one does and how each works. (47:45) Dr. Fung clarifies what indeed breaks a fast.

Episode 144: Jason Fung on how fasting and a low-carb diet improve insulin resistance and metabolic health

STEM-Talk

Our guest today is Dr. Jason Fung, a Toronto-based nephrologist, and the best-selling author of “The Obesity Code,” “The Diabetes Code,” and “The Cancer Code.” Jason is best known for his success in combining a low-carb diet with intermittent fasting to help thousands of overweight patients reverse their type 2 diabetes, lose weight, and improve their metabolic health. Jason is the author of the blog “The Fasting Method” and the co-founder of the Intensive Dietary Management program, an initiative that provides low-carb dietary guidance and counseling on various fasting regimes. Jason is also the co-author with Jimmy Moore of “The Complete Guide to Fasting,” which looks at the history and culture of fasting and how it helps people improve their metabolic health. In today’s episode, Ken is joined by Visiting IHMC research scientist Dr. Tommy Wood and together, they and Jason discuss: How in the beginning of his practice, Jason prescribed insulin for type 2 diabetes patients. How a series of landmark studies starting in 2008 changed Jason’s mind about using glucose-lowering medication for type 2 diabetes. Jason’s realization that type 2 diabetes is largely a dietary disease and therefore requires a dietary solution rather than a pharmaceutical one. The origins of Jason’s Dietary Management program, which counsels overweight and obese patients to follow a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet to reduce insulin. A critique of the “eat less, move more” strategy acclaimed by many obesity experts. Mark Mattson’s research into the powerful impact of intermittent fasting on metabolic health and a recent paper that questioned the effectiveness of time-restricted eating when compared to daily calorie restriction. Recent research and evidence that fasting during chemotherapy may reduce the side effects of the treatment. Show notes: [00:02:25] Tommy opens the interview mentioning that Jason was born and raised in Toronto and asks what drew Jason to science as a kid. [00:03:43] Tommy mentions the irony that Jason has written several best-selling books, yet Jason was not fond of English or writing when he was in school. [00:04:53] Ken mentions that after graduating from high school, Jason stayed close to home and attended the University of Toronto, entering into medical school just after turning 19 to study internal medicine, eventually specializing in nephrology. Ken asks Jason what intrigued him about becoming a kidney specialist. [00:06:36] Tommy asks Jason what led him to go to UCLA after medical school for his specialty training in kidney disease at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. [00:07:37] Tommy mentions that Jason has been practicing clinical nephrology in Toronto since 2001, and that in those early years of his practice, Jason saw patients with type 2 diabetes and prescribed medications to keep their blood glucose low. When that didn’t work, he would prescribe insulin, which is the standard medical practice. Tommy asks what Jason observed during these early years of his practice. [00:09:28] Ken mentions that in 2008, two landmark studies were published, the ACCORD study and the ADVANCE study (a summary of ADVANCE). These studies were followed by two more studies, the ORIGIN and VADT studies, all four of which demonstrated that using blood glucose-lowering medication for type 2 diabetes didn’t necessarily have the expected benefits. Ken asks Jason to talk about how these studies were eye-opening for him and confirmed his own experience in treating patients. [00:16:27] Tommy explains that in 1972 Robert Atkins published the “Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution,” which shared his findings on the effectiveness of low-carb, high-fat dieting. Tommy goes on to mention that in the late 1990s, a string of Atkins-styled diet books surged in popularity, with most physicians being opposed due to the conventional wisdom that these high-fat diets would cause heart disease. As a result, several trials were launched in the early 2000s to prove this point. Tommy asks Jason to talk about how these trials revealed that the real story is more nuanced than people might think. [00:20:42] Ken mentions that even though Jason and countless other doctors were appalled at the notion that high-fat diets were being promoted as safe and effective, Jason and other physicians had virtually no nutritional training during their years in medical school. Ken asks if, in hindsight, Jason believes this is something that needs to change. [00:24:49] Tommy explains that Jason’s realization that type 2 diabetes was largely a dietary disease and therefore required a dietary solution rather than a pharmaceutical one led him, along with Megan Ramos, a medical researcher, to establish the intensive Dietary Management program in Scarborough, Ontario, in 2011. The object of this program is to counsel overweight and obese patients to follow a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet to reduce insulin. Tommy asks about the results of this initiative. [00:28:56] Tommy points out that when when Jason started seeing positive results with his patients losing weight and getting off their medications with a high fat diet, Jason started giving lectures around Toronto. He  eventually posted a six-part lecture on the etiology of obesity on YouTube and starting a blog, “Intensive Dietary Management,” which evolved into “The Fasting Method.” This all received good feedback and opened the door for Jason to write a book, “The Obesity Code.” [00:30:43] Ken explains that Jason’s book begins with a critique of the “eat less, move more” strategy acclaimed by many obesity experts.  Jason points out in the book that while this sounds like a reasonable approach to weight loss, the approach has generally been ineffecitve. Ken asks Jason to elaborate on this. [00:37:08] Tommy explains that there is substantial experimental evidence that the “eat less, move more” approach is not particularly effective advice for individuals in an environment that promotes being sedentary while surrounded by hyperpalatable, calorie-dense, low-protein food. Tommy goes on to say that this does not imply that an integrated calorie balance model is incorrect, only ineffective. Tommy asks Jason for his thoughts. [00:46:58] Ken mentions that in Mark Mattson’s appearance on STEM-Talk, he talked about his recently published book, “The Intermittent Fasting Revolution: The Science of Optimizing Health and Enhancing Performance.” Ken goes on to say that in this interview Mark talked about a paper he had in the New England Journal of Medicine that highlighted how studies in animals and humans have shown that eating in a six-hour window and fasting for 18 hours has been shown to have positive effects on lifespan and a wide range of chronic disorders including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancers, and neurodegenerative brain diseases. However, a recent paper that appeared in the same journal reported that a year-long study among patients with obesity found that a regimen of time-restricted eating was not anymore beneficial – with regard to reduction in body weight, body fat, or metabolic risk factors – than daily calorie restriction. Ken asks Jason for his opinion on this recent study. [00:55:54] Ken mentions that Jason’s answer has circled back to efficaciousness versus effectiveness, and asks if Jason would agree that fasting is a more effective method than calorie restriction to lose weight because it is easier to follow. [00:57:52] Tommy asks if Jason agrees that calorie restriction is efficacious but not effective because it is hard for people to follow. [00:58:45] Tommy asks Jason about his third book in what has been referred to as the wellness series, “The Cancer Code.” [01:02:35] Ken explains that there is obviously a genetic aspect to cancer, but our environment also plays a huge role in the development of cancer. Jason points out in his book that a Japanese woman who moves from Japan to San Francisco often doubles and or triples her risk of cancer. Ken asks what makes the environment of the U.S. such a risk factor, and what makes the environment in Japan protective. [01:05:47] Ken mentions that there is also evidence that fasting during chemotherapy may reduce the side effects of the treatment. Ken asks Jason to talk about this and how fasting might also increase the efficacy of chemotherapy. [01:07:50] Tommy mentions that he understands that Jason weighs the same as he did in high school, and asks what his diet and fasting protocol look like. [01:11:15] To wrap up the interview, Ken  asks Jason for his take on rapamycin and concerns about the risk-reward ratio of using rapamycin as a prescription medication.

BEST OF: Insulin & Weight Loss with Dr. Jason Fung - Episode 2227

Fitness Confidential with Vinnie Tortorich

Episode 2227 - On this Saturday's show, we replay the first time Vinnie Tortorich speaks to Dr. Jason Fung and they discuss his book , insulin and weight loss, metabolic syndrome, intermittent fasting, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/best-of-insulin-weight-loss-dr-jason-fung-episode-2227 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS INSULIN & WEIGHT LOSS Vinnie welcome Dr. Jason Fung, who is a kidney specialist. (2:05) He works often with type 2 diabetics -- the biggest cause of kidney nephropathy. Type 2 is linked closely with obesity. Insulin has negative effects.   Vinnie tells Dr. Fung about his visit to his hometown of Donaldsonville. (7:05) Everyone he met was on multiple medications. They all had some kind of sugary drink in their hands. They discuss how obesity is misunderstood; it is linked with several diseases and is often a part of metabolic syndrome. (8:00) Dr. Fung recommends . (9:00) Sugar is the enemy, not calories! Calories In, Calories Out (CICO) doesn't work or even make sense. (9:10) When you eat fewer calories, your energy expenditure (and thus fat/fuel usage) goes down. You simply get hungrier. It takes time to lose weight. Lots of things raise insulin, not just sugars and grains. (19:40) Insulin resistance leads to higher insulin levels. INTERMITTENT FASTING A key way to break insulin resistance is intermittent fasting. (23:20) Intermittent fasting should happen every day--Dr. Fung explains. (27:50) Having snacks doesn't allow your body to process all the hormones properly. (29:00) Shorter fasts aren't really enough. Dr. Fung explains the various fasting methods he recommends, even longer ones under medical supervision. Body switches to fat burning. (33:15) Obesity is a hormonal imbalance, not a caloric one. (42:00) Cortisol is a stress hormone -- encourages getting fat. Prednisone is a synthetic form of cortisol. Leptin is produced by fat cells and regulates how much fat is in the body If you have lots of fat, leptin is released and tells your brain to stop gaining more weight. When you are quite fat, your body stops responding to leptin. Leptin is a secondary hormone, so it doesn't pass the causal test. Ghrelin is another one of these secondary hormones; as a result, no lasting effect so doesn't pass the causal test either. Vinnie and Dr. Fung discuss a bit more about why CICO doesn't work. (45:00) Type 2 diabetes can be reversed in most cases; however, you can't treat a disease of having too much insulin by giving more insulin! (51:45) They give great comparisons as examples. There needs to be a grassroots movement for changes in the system; there are too many conflicts of interest with people who want to keep the meds going and how they fund things like universities.

#285 Why Intermittent Fasting Works with Dr Jason Fung

Feel Better, Live More with Dr Rangan Chatterjee

CAUTION: This podcast discusses fasting and its advice may not be suitable for anyone with an eating disorder. If you have an existing health condition or are taking medication, always consult your healthcare practitioner before going for prolonged periods without eating.When was the last time you had something to eat? Was the food consumed at a mealtime, or 'just because'? My guest today has a simple but powerful message that I believe could revolutionize your health. Dr Jason Fung is one of the world's foremost experts on intermittent fasting. He practices in Canada as a kidney specialist and in 2012, he co-founded America's first intermittent fasting clinic. He's published multiple international bestselling books and he runs a global online coaching program called Intensive Dietary Management. Dr Fung also works tirelessly to communicate simple messages with the public on his YouTube channel.We begin this conversation by discussing how many unscheduled opportunities to eat there are in modern life. These days, it is normal to eat at your desk, in meetings, on public transport or even on the sofa at home. Yet, just a few decades ago, such habits would have seemed very out of place. Jason explains that the idea that it’s good to graze all day is unscientific and damaging – our bodies can only draw on our fat stores for energy when we’re not in a fed state. Our default should be not eating, with two or three meals planned in short windows over 24 hours. Instead, schools, workplaces and places of leisure are designed around opportunities to snack and for many of us, it's causing a host of problems.Jason goes on to talk about why he believes that calorie counting isn’t the answer when it comes to getting your weight and health in check and why some foods are more fattening than others, even if they're equal in calories. Jason's approach is to encourage all of us to switch to what he calls ‘the right foods’ – whole, unprocessed foods, low in sugar and refined carbohydrates, which will not stimulate large amounts of a hormone called insulin. As a result, Jason says you'll be less hungry, less inclined to eat constantly and return your hormones to the way they're designed to work.Jason is also a big fan of intermittent fasting for the right person and explains easy ways to practise it, the common mistakes and misconceptions, and reveals why the ‘rules’ aren’t as strict as you think. Whether you're already a fan of intermittent fasting, whether you're in the dark or whether you are someone who has yet to be convinced, I'd urge you to give this conversation a listen. Jason is a fantastic communicator who's helped countless people improve their health and well-being.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.boncharge.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreShow notes https://drchatterjee.com/285DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
