Mitophagy question

    Hi Jack,

    I'm eating a relatively large amount of high light carbs while getting a ton of sun per your suggestion for clearing out bad mitochondria particularly in my digestive system. Would eating a high amount of protein instead of the carbs on some days be a good or bad idea for mitophagy? I get the fact that the high light carbs are sending a signal to the mitochondria in my digestive system.

    Thank you

    Fasting increases AMPK best to stimulate it

    Anything that grows in high light, summer conditions. Local berries, fruits, veggies.

    There is at the UPR and both anterograde and retrograde mitonuclear pathways for mitophagy.

    The UPR is very complex but covers anterograde and retrograde mitonuclear communications. Look for this article :
    "Mitonuclear communication in homeostasis and stress"

    I've done really well w/ the 2 day fasts here and there. Want to try a 3 day fast as well. Not that difficult either as long as I'm getting a lot of grounded sun. I did one 2 day fast during a time when I couldn't get much sun and that didn't feel as successful to me.
