The Application of Intermittent Fasting in Medicine ft. Jason Fung || Episode 61

Podcast cover
Read more

Intermittent fasting activates many biological pathways in the human body, namely autophagy, ketosis, and cellular repair. These effects could be just what many patients need to reverse diabetes and overcome obesity, and forward-thinking doctors have taken note.

One such doctor is Dr. Jason Fung, who is a pioneer of intermittent fasting in the clinical setting. He returns to the program after first appearing 2 years ago, and we both agree that we have seen the practice soar to popularity, in both culture and medicine, during that time. 

We discuss the similarities of the end goals of intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet, the hacks one can use during a fast and when they should use them, and how fasting can be the cure for the underlying root cause of Type 2 diabetes.

Intermittent Fasting When Stressed & Understanding Blood Sugar Spikes · #118 ft. Dr. Molly Maloof

Podcast cover
Read more

Feeling stressed out? Your metabolism may be sharing the burden.

This episode, featuring returning favorite Dr. Molly Maloof, revolves around stress.

An essential facet of human function, how we perceive and respond to the stressors in our lives is key for our well-being. It’s not all simply in your mind, and even if the source of a stress IS mental, there can be physical and metabolic downstream effects.

Intermittent fasting is an example of direct physical and metabolic stress. Yes, while we are huge advocates of fasting & its many benefits, it is important to understand this nuance.

That teases out a question...should you still fast if you’re under heavy stress?

Speaking from personal experience, Dr. Maloof provides interesting insight into when it may be time to take a stress break from fasting. In addition, Geoff & Dr. Maloof chat about nutritional periodization to train your metabolism, continuous glucose monitoring and how to interpret different glucose spikes, and the importance of mitochondrial function.

Fasting for Longevity ft. Peter Bowes || Ep. 44

Podcast cover
Read more

We all know a healthy diet is essential for all aspects of health, but what if we can further hack our lifespans by controlling our feeding windows? You can...it's called intermittent fasting! If the direction current science is heading is any indication, taking charge of when to eat means taking charge of many levers in your biology that can lead to a long, healthy life. 

Episode 44 features Peter Bowes, a BBC reporter and host of the LLAMA Podcast. One of the earliest supporters of HVMN's foray into intermittent fasting, Peter shares our core value of creating an open forum for the community to support and become educated. Peter has always had a foundational interest in longevity, spurring him to experiment with various practices and connect with thought-leaders around the world. The experimentation will never end, but it's safe to say that Peter, like many biohackers, found intermittent fasting to be a biohack he will implement for the rest of his life.  

Geoffrey Woo and Peter discuss the biological mechanisms of fasting (such as lowering IGF-1 levels, a hormone that has been linked to cancer when it reaches higher levels), the difference between working towards a long health-span vs. a long life-span, ponder how to keep that "spark" in you alive as you age, and answer questions from the community.

mTor Signaling & Cell Growth: Targeting via Ketogenic Diet & Intermittent Fasting || #109 ft. Dr. Keith Baar

Podcast cover
Read more

mTor…mechanistic target of rapamycin. What is it?

We reference mTor frequently on our podcast, particularly when we discuss fasting or keto and their potential for extending health & lifespan.

mTor is a pathway that helps controls cell growth. In the most simplest terms: When you have high mTor activation, you promote growth in the body. When you have low mTor activation, you promote repair and maintenance.

mTor is sensitive to the nutrients we consume (especially protein and carbohydrate), so by controlling our diet, we can control mTor. This is an exciting area because a lot of people think mTor plays a role for longevity & metabolism. The ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting are natural ways to target & regulate your mTor.

Dr. Keith Baar, a professor of Physiology at the UC Davis Medical School, is an expert on mTor and muscle growth. This is a valuable conversation for anyone interested in mTor and strategies to control it, and why non-tissue specific approaches like rapamycin might have problems.

When it comes to intermittent fasting, the most common question from beginners who struggle with the hunger is: “What can you drink during your fast?"

A fasting purist would answer with nothing but water. A more relaxed faster may point you to a cup of black coffee, tea, or bone broth.

Let's face it: Intermittent fasting can be tough...especially for a newbie!

What can one drink to help get them through a fast without "breaking" it?

In this podcast clip, Dr. Jason Fung details why he believes green tea & ketone esters could be an effective "fasting" hack.

An Alternative View of Cancer Treatment ft. Thomas Seyfried || Episode 27 (Pt. 1)

Podcast cover

Geoff sits down and has a 1:1 conversation with Professor Thomas Seyfried, a renowned and controversial researcher who authored "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease". 

Cancer has generally been considered a genetic disease since its inception, but Professor Seyfried fights against that view and argues that it is a metabolic disease. Encouraging doctors to look into metabolic treatments as the first method to combat cancer cells, Seyfried may have a point. Metabolic treatments include caloric restriction, fasting, and ketogenic diets...all of which Seyfried speculates have the ability to help the body and kill off cancer cells. There are certain bodies of research showing that cancer cells thrive on sugars and amino acids, which metabolic therapies have the potential to control. Could cancer truly be a metabolic disease?

A pair of studies from University of British Columbia by Prof. Jonathan Little and Oxford Prof. Kieran Clarke researched how H.V.M.N. Ketone impacts glycemic response in both normal and obese populations.

Before participants consumed a 75g glucose drink, they consumed a ketone monoester. The results?

Reduced glycemic response and markers of insulin sensitivity.

In this episode of Research Roundup, Geoffrey Woo explains the studies' design, analyzes the specific results, and finally, what one could take away from the science and apply it to their personal life. 

On a keto "cheat meal" day, could you perhaps reduce the negative effects a carb-heavy meal would have on your metabolism? Let's find out.

Can You Age Backwards? Epigenetic Reprogramming for Extending Lifespan · Dr. David Sinclair · #135

Podcast cover
Read more

Is there no limit to human longevity?

The latest & most cutting-edge research in aging paints a fascinating picture for the future.

Much of this work comes from Dr. David Sinclair, a Professor in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School & the author of New York Times Bestseller "Lifespan: Why We Age - And Why We Don't Have To".

Dr. Sinclair's leading hypothesis for why we age and how we can manipulate our biological clock is dubbed the "Information Theory of Aging". He joins the H.V.M.N. Podcast to expand on the biological mechanisms behind his theory, the discoveries from his research, and what we can potentially do today to extend our lifespan.

Topics Discussed:

· Epigenetic reprogramming

· What the "Observer" could be (Dr. Sinclair proposes that each cell has an original dna ‘observer’ copy that can be activated and restored to a youthful state)

· Hormesis

· Horvath's clock

· Metabolic and cellular pathways for longevity

· Potential interventions for longevity: Nutrition, cold exposure, metformin, resveratrol, NAD+, ketones

What NO Politician Is Saying About Healthcare · Geoff Talk

Podcast cover
Read more

Fixing healthcare costs & health insurance is part of standard political speeches & debates for US presidential candidates today.

Everyone knows there’s a problem with the healthcare system. However, virtually all of the politician's discussions & proposals are based on bandaid solutions.

The real issue? The healthcare crisis begins with our widespread health crisis.

No politician is talking about how modern lifestyle and industrialized nutrition is destroying the health of millions of Americans.

No politician is going to talk about this because telling the masses that their comfortable lifestyle is unhealthy and dangerous is not what they want to hear.

Healthcare is primarily fixing people when they're broken. Our current society and culture are breaking too many people, too quickly.

In this video, Geoffrey Woo dives deep into the issues of healthcare, population health, and what he believes we can all do to steer society in a better direction.

Science of Better Sleep: Regulating Temperature & Making Sleep Data Actionable · Eight Sleep · #134

Podcast cover
Read more

Sleep is known as a common "pillar of health", yet is increasingly neglected in our modern society. Although technology has constantly been advancing, our beds have remained largely the same.

Stanford Professor Craig Heller & Matteo Franceschetti from Eight Sleep joins the podcast to discuss the science of better sleep.

How can we translate the "gold standard" of a clinical sleep environment to our own sleeping routines...our own homes? What sleep biomarkers make up a good night's rest? How important is body temperature for optimal sleep? 

In addition, we discuss:

  • Sleep technology: The drawbacks of wearables, envisioning a future in which we can control and create our own optimal "sleep environment", & the power of thermoregulation.
  • How measuring "quality" of sleep works in a home setting and in a clinical setting
  • Importance of accessible & long-term health data: How did Matteo use his sleep data to predict oncoming illnesses?

Ketones Improve Intestinal Stem Cell Function - Research Roundup

Podcast cover
Read more

A new study, conducted by MIT, explored how a ketogenic diet and exogenous ketones govern signaling biological programs that maintain intestinal stem cell function.

We know ketone bodies like beta-hydroxybutyrate have signaling roles in the body and can help regulate things like appetite, metabolism, and neurotransmitter function.

This study provides evidence that BHB itself may play a key mediating role in maintaining intestinal health too.

Do ketones themselves (and not necessarily through fasting or a ketogenic diet) alone drive some of the metabolic and functional benefits? What were the exact findings?

Let's find out.

Heart Health & Diabetes: How Diet & Hypoxia Affects Metabolic Flexibility · Dr. Latt Mansor · #131

Podcast cover
Read more

Dr. Latt Mansor is the new Research Lead of H.V.M.N, and we're proud to share his fascinating research and upcoming work with our listeners!

In Dr. Mansor's thesis study, he found that the diabetic heart retains metabolic flexibility to adapt to hypoxia. Hypoxia is a condition when the body lacks adequate oxygen. Since diabetic hearts are more prone to hypoxia, getting closer to understanding if it could adapt to it was an important finding.

For context, diabetes and hypoxia have opposing effects on metabolic substrates in the heart. Diabetes promotes fatty acid oxidation and suppresses glycolysis, whereas adaptation to hypoxia suppresses fatty acid oxidation and promotes glycolysis.

The key result of Dr. Mansor's paper was that diabetic hearts did indeed adapt to chronic hypoxia, by increasing glycolysis and decreasing fatty acid oxidation.

In addition, Geoff & Dr. Mansor discuss:

  • The implications of the study that was awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Medicine, which discovered how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability
  • The complex relationship between diet, oxygen, and HIF (our oxygen-sensing pathway)
  • The potential of ketones to improve metabolic inflexiblity

Animal-based vs. plant-based nutrition - What's most optimal for human health & performance?

Frank Tufano, a follower of an animal-based, zero-carb diet for over 5 years, has garnered quite a unique reputation on Youtube. Along with his informative videos on the ins-and-outs of a carnivorous lifestyle, Frank doesn't shy away from scrutinizing the rapidly growing (and arguably more culturally accepted) plant-based diet.

In this podcast, Geoff and Frank discuss:

· The cultural impact of a recent study (published in Annals of Internal Medicine) that concluded that the current public-health recommendation to eat less red and processed meat isn’t backed by strong evidence

· Cooked meat vs. Raw meat: What are the proposed benefits for consuming raw meat or fermented foods?

· Analyzing the common arguments for veganism (i.e. reducing environmental impact) and how Frank debunks them

With the 100-Mile American Record already under his belt (for 5+ years), ultra endurance athlete Zach Bitter just outdid himself on August 25th, 2019.

He crushed the 100-Mile World Record, setting a 6:48-mile pace and besting the previous world record by nearly 10 minutes.

Zach is notable for his low-carb, high-fat, animal-based lifestyle as a professional endurance athlete. He first transitioned to the ketogenic diet during an off-season, and immediately felt his sleep, energy, and recovery improve.

By developing a flexible, fat-adapted metabolism, he's able to tactically use carbs to maximize racing performance.

In this episode, Geoff & Zack discuss:

· Zack's 100 Mile World Record, his mental game during racing, and why he got into ultra-endurance sport

· LCHF diets for therapeutic cases vs. performance cases...does an athlete have more "leeway" with eating carbohydrates?

· Carnivore diet for leaky gut & autoimmune issues

When it comes to intermittent fasting, the most common question from beginners who struggle with the hunger is: “What can you drink during your fast?"

A fasting purist would answer with nothing but water. A more relaxed faster may point you to a cup of black coffee, tea, or bone broth.

Let's face it: Intermittent fasting can be tough...especially for a newbie!

What can one drink to help get them through a fast without "breaking" it?

Why We Age, and How We Don't Have To · David Sinclair's "Lifespan" [BOOK REVIEW]

Podcast cover
Read more

"Aging is a disease, and that disease is treatable."

In his new book, "Lifespan", David Sinclair has proposed a radical new theory of aging, suggesting that the aging hallmarks are symptoms of epigenetic changes that occur over time, but that the original genetic code remains very much intact. If we can reset the code, can we slow, stop or even reverse aging? Sinclair believes we can.

Geoffrey Woo, after digesting "Lifespan", has formulated some interesting thoughts based on the information given and hypotheses proposed in the book.

In this book review, Geoff details the core concepts of aging, the practical ways we can slow it, & his final verdict on Sinclair's bold theory for extending longevity.
