Your cells are constantly monitoring the nutrient status of the cells to determine whether or not to conserve energy or to promote growth.
One of the few known ways of increasing lifespan in almost all species is caloric restriction and energy deprivation.
This triggers many metabolic pathways and processes that make the organism more adaptable to environmental stressors and thus live longer.
In addition to ’Metabolic’, you can also find another word in the title - ’Autophagy’, which translates from Ancient Greek into ’self-devouring’ or ’eating of self’. This is central to the main practice of this book. By maintaining a balance between anabolism and catabolism, you can effectively extend your lifespan.
The process of autophagy entails your healthy cells devouring the old, worn-out, weak ones and converting them back into energy. It’s literally your body eating itself and using that to maintain homeostasis. There are many longevity-boosting benefits to this as illustrated in virtually all other species.
This book incorporates daily lifestyle and dietary practices that help to cross the chasm between longevity and high performance.
My name is Siim Land and I’m an author, content creator, entrepreneur, high performance coach, human optimization enthusiast, and biohacker. I’ve written several books about ketogenic dieting and intermittent fasting already.
The Metabolic Autophagy book is a collection of the life-sustaining processes and energy partitioning pathways in the body. I’ve been researching this topic for over 5 years but now I’ve decided to bring them all together between two covers.Get the Exclusive Audiobook!
"I had the chance to read through Siim Land’s seminal work on autophagy and metabolic health. Simply, this is the best and most comprehensive book on the topic I have ever read. Siim is a walking encyclopedia on topics like ketogenic diet, autophagy, mTOR and fasting. I highly recommend this book!"
"Metabolic Autophagy is the most complete, practical, up to date, and easy to understand program on getting lean and building muscle around. If you want to be strong and live long then this is a must have for your library."
This book is a collection of guidelines about the principles of the anabolic-catabolic cycles in regards to nutrition and exercise. It’s definitely not a panacea – a solution or remedy for all conditions and circumstances. Instead, it’s a very specific protocol that’s not supposed to apply for all situations.
