Key Takeaways and Timestamps from the discussion:  

02:26 Growth hormone gene mutations impact longevity and protection from chronic disease.

09:24 Weaker cells are consumed during a fasting mimicry diet.

11:50 Most organisms starve most of the time.

14:26 Low protein helps people under the age of 65 and hurts people over the age of 65.

18:09 Proteins control growth factor/growth hormone which controls IGF-1, which also controls mTOR.

19:31 Athletes need to have enough protein in the regeneration refeed.

23:39 Just adhering to the Fasting Mimicry Diet 5 days out of 30 is enough to have a significant drop in IGF-1, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, fasting glucose, and inflammation.

30:03 Fasting for 14 to 16 hours has benefits: increased ketone bodies, weight loss, and metabolic advantages.

30:38 Consuming ketone bodies and fatty acids on top of a normal diet is a mistake. It confuses your metabolism. Long term repercussions are unknown.

36:26 Fasting Mimicry Diet is the result of years of researching the connection of each component of food and the genes that regulate ageing and regeneration.
