All Things Fasting (Oct '23)
About the Course
There are three ways we can work with food: we can change what we eat, how much we eat, or when we eat. All three are important but fasting is that underutilized third level-when we eat. There is a growing body of research showing that fasting can be of benefit in conditions as different as weight loss, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, adjunctively in cancer treatment or post-treatment, and generally in overall health and longevity.
We’ll cover all the facets to fasting, including ‘time-restricted eating’ (essentially a longer overnight fast), 24-hour fasts weekly or biweekly, OMAD (one meal a day), what has been termed a ‘fasting-mimicking diet’ (which is essentially a specific low-calorie diet for 5 days a month), 3 consecutive days of fasting monthly or quarterly, and various other programs in between. The classes will provide a group learning experience for individuals interested in various forms of fasting and will equip you with the skills to start exploring fasting for yourself at your own pace. It is a program rich with learning and practical applications.
Each of the four 90-minute sessions is conveniently online. The class is scheduled 4:30-6:00 pm PST on Tuesday, October 10, 17, 24, November 7. The course is open to anyone who would like to attend.
