INTERVIEW WITH DR. BRADY SALCIDO ON HOW TO BOOST BRAIN POWER THROUGH FASTING

Hey guys,

If you have listened to the ep. 007 with Dr. Michael VanDerschelden, you probably know that Intermittent Fasting can bring benefits like fat burning, brain function and simply ‘being better at life’.

In this episode with my guest Dr. Brady Salcido we go even deeper on IF and Keto diet and will talk about things like:

  • What is autophagy and why it is practically magic
  • How to break your fast correctly
  • Tips on combining fasting and working out
  • and further on

Dr. Brady Salcido, who we simply gonna call Dr. B is a chiropractor, podcast host and also a big advocate for ketogenic diet and Intermittent Fasting. 

It literally changed his life and now he’s offering courses like Intermittent Fasting 101 and Fasting Reboot System for those who want to follow that path too!

What's in this episode?

  • How Dr. B went from being always sick and overweight to being super fit – both mentally and physically
  • What is autophagy and why you want to get there
  • what happens when you combine ketosis and IF
  • How to break your fast correctly
  • Once fasting becomes part of your lifestyle – you might not need as many calories as before!
  • Once you go through phase one that is called ‘fat adapted’ – you have much more flexibility with what you eat
  • Ketogenic diet makes you live longer!
  • Combining IF, Ketogenic diet and working out
  • What is the difference between brake pedal and gas pedal systems in our brains
  • How having a podcast is a great way to learn

” I find 16/8 hour IF method is a great way to start. One of the best way to get more benefits is to extend the fast to 17, 18, 19 hours. “

Key Takeaways

  • Ketosis combined with autophagy cleans your body, reduces inflammation and provides you with more clean energy for the brain
  • When breaking the fast, it’s not a good idea to go crazy on carbs. But going full keto diet is not a great idea for those who are active physically
  • For strength training,  it’s great to do it after you put some carbs in your body. But for HIIT training – doing it right before you break the fast – it’s the way
