Why This Cardiologist Recommends Fasting with Dr Pradip Jamnadas

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  February 9, 2022

TRIGGER WARNING: This podcast discusses fasting and its advice may not be suitable for anyone with an eating disorder. If you have an existing health condition or are taking medication, always consult your healthcare practitioner before going for prolonged periods without eating.

You probably wouldn’t expect a cardiologist to tell you that not eating is the key to better heart health. But today’s guest is a passionate believer in finding new solutions to old diseases – and in finding those solutions within ourselves.

Dr Pradip Jamnadas is a Florida-based consultant cardiologist and a clinical assistant professor with more than 30 years’ experience and a keen interest in preventative health. He has performed thousands of interventional procedures during his career and his educational videos on fasting and heart health have been viewed by hundreds of thousands on his YouTube channel.

From weight loss to reversing diabetes, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol to increasing longevity, Dr Jamnadas outlines the evidence-based, dramatic changes that fasting can bring. He talks us through the restorative processes that take place in the body when we take longer breaks from food and details the discoveries he made about fasting and its effect on insulin, metabolic health, obesity and heart health – along with the astounding difference it’s made to his patients’ lives. But it’s not just physical benefits. Dr Jamnadas explains the ripple effect that changing your beliefs and habits around food can have on your mental well-being and the rest of your life.

Dr Jamnadas also shares the very gradual and specific protocol he takes patients through, to build up their fasting in a way that’s sustainable. We discuss whether fasting is more beneficial for men than women, we touch on food addiction and talk about eating disorders.

This is a fascinating episode and I think you will really enjoy it.
