Can you have Black Coffee while intermittent fasting?What is Autophagy –
When the body replaces some less productive parts of the cell. Cleaning up the cells has been shown to increase immunity, suppress tumors, etc. Basically eating shuts down autophagy, and fasting starts autophagy.
Fasting for longevity does require stricter fasting. Vs fasting for circadian rhythm or fat loss.
