Intermittent Fasting for Your Body Type
There’s too much stuff in our emotional body that we’re not processing. We’re just covering up small bits and pieces of food as we go. Emotional inflammation, in addition to physical inflammation, has an impact on our physiology. The negative pressures we face lead to an unhealthy lifestyle that has long-term consequences.
In this episode, Cate Stillman talks about the most prominent negative stressors we have and the root of chronic inflammation. She shares how negative stressors affect emotional and physical health and how we can better care for our physiology. Tune in to learn more!

- “The number one habit that’s creating chronic inflammation is eating too frequently. It’s a modern culture where we snack late and sit on our asses way too much. We prefer convenience over real food, we make decisions to make us feel good in the short term. They don’t make you feel relaxed and aware and like you have all the time and all the money that you need. We end up worrying too much and sacrificing sleep. Those are all a result of decreased neuroplasticity from eating too frequently.”
- “As you become more integrated with your physiology through the fasting habit, you actually can activate the deeper muscles of your soul and your abdominal transverse. That also gives you tone in your lower belly, which gives you tone and your lower back. It gives you tone in the side abdominals. What that does is actually accentuates your waist-to-hip ratio. You’re also supported in your lower chakras.”
- “The more you actually understand your physiology, the more you can get yourself to skip a meal.”
- “We have been evolving with bacteria and viruses. Viruses are a much bigger subset of genetic diversity than bacteria. You have your human DNA cells, you have your microbiome cells, and then you have your virus, which is huge and expansive. Our physiology is meant to constantly adapt to what’s coming in. We don’t get to adapt if we don’t have lysosomal action. If that’s all going to digest food, you are depleting your adaptability. That will accelerate your aging and it leaves you very vulnerable to new viruses and bacteria entering the evolutionary cycle alongside mammals. It’s nothing to be afraid of, but you should know how it works.”
