Ya voy por las 84 horas de ayuno y lo llevo bien, a las 90 paso a modo FMD, 700 calorías al día con pocos carbohidratos y pocas proteínas.
El objetivo es llegar a poder hacer ayunos de 5 días, ósea FMD sin la M.
The rough rule of thumb in nematode worms is: restrict calorie intake by 30% and see up to a 30% increase in lifespan. The effects are smaller in mice and even smaller in primates. Not many people have the willpower to adhere to a lifelong diet, though occasional "fasting mimicking diets" seem to have beneficial effects. Nevertheless the holy grail has been to find a drug that could mimic fasting. Calorie restriction flips a metabolic switch from "abundance" to "austerity". Like when you get a big salary cut, you don't go adding extensions to the house; you hunker down, live modestly, recycle your old things and delay your plans to have babies. Somehow responding to this stress also lengthens lifespan. These days researchers think autophagy plays a big part in the lengthening. For instance, recent studies on mice and humans shows that fasting accelerates the refurbishing of tissues, clearing away damaged "senescent cells" while turning on renewing stem cells.
