This is part 2 of my series on fasting. If you haven’t read part 1, you can find it here. In that article I went into the benefits of fasting and why I personally wanted to try fasting for 5 days; not juice fasting, but putting my body into a state of ketosis.

Fasting: Why You Should Try It And What My Own Fasting Experiment Taught Me

PART 1 of 2

I’m a big fan of self-experimentation. It’s one thing to look at research or hear some author/blogger’s health discovery, but we are all so individual. Not to mention a lot of studies are poorly put together and people can put anything out there on the internet and call it a fact. But reading and discovering what’s working for others is a great way to get ideas about what you can try, too! Not to mention, we can’t forget how fun it is to see the expressions of your coworker, friends, or family’s faces when you explain what sort of biohack or self-experiment you’re conducting while trying not to sound like a crazy person…fun times.

In my essential fatty acid series, I started off talking about why you should care about taking an essential fatty acid/omega-3 supplement. Then I wrote an article for the vegans, vegetarians, or people who just don’t eat fish that often about a supplement they can take. Which brings me to the most well-known supplement for maintaining ideal omega-3 balance: Fish Oil. Because remember guys… if you aren’t eating fish at least 2-3x per week, you need to supplement with a high-quality essential fatty acid/omega-3 supplement.

The goal for this guide is to show you how to choose the best fish oil for your money and health. I will also make some recommendations for some products I personally use and have recommended to my clients. I also want to take a moment in this article and teach you a powerful technique for using fish oil for weight loss.  (more…)

If You’re A Vegetarian or Vegan… Or Just Don’t Eat Fish Often, You Need This Supplement

In my last article, I gave the low-down on essential fatty acids; why you need them, and where you can get them from…

I highlighted the issue that there are no plant-based sources of omega-3 essential fatty-acids that the body can use with significant benefit. That’s bad news for vegetarians and vegans or anyone who doesn’t eat fish. When your essential fats get out of balance you are opening yourself up to a bunch of nasty health complications such as inflammation, stress, and disease. By eating fish or taking a fish or krill supplement you keep your body in balance, keeping inflammation under control. (more…)
