New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– New Book On Fasting (I Wrote The Foreword!)
My friend and brilliant fasting expert, Dr. Dan Pompa just put the finishing touches on his book Beyond Fasting, and it is well worth a read. It's a truly comprehensive guide to fasting that focuses on enhancing longevity by stem cell activation of certain fasting techniques. It has a protocol that prepares you for the fast by getting your cells to use their own stored fat as energy (fat-adaptation). By going into the fast fat-adapted you will go “Beyond Fasting” because results start day one of the fast. This program will help to equip the body with the tools to heal and create new stem cells from day one of the fast, which generally doesn't happen until day four or five. Very, very cool approach to fasting, and I highly recommend the book. Get it here.

I swear by this shit and hit the chiro once a week for my reboot. I think some chiro gets a bad rap because there’s a lot of woo woo stuff out there … but a good manual adjustment by somebody who really knows their joints just makes me feelright as rain. Who else gets chiro?
