In this episode, we dive into: 

“University Life & Sleep”

  • Professor Krishnan’s origin story and how did he reach this space of being Director at IIMB?
  • Upto 60% of college students suffer from poor sleep quality. As someone who is an integral part of so many people’s formative years in college, what does he see are sleep challenges among them? Does it need to be that way?
  • From 2010-2018, sleep disturbances significantly increased in college students with 25% of them having difficulties. This can have short term and long term cognitive and behavioural repercussions.  Research has found 60% of them having insomnia. This can impact academic performance. Do universities need to bring in sleep quality and mental health screening programs? Is counselling a part of IIMB?
  • By supporting students in improving sleep, it can contribute to helping them with better memory, improved grades, less health challenges, decreased risk of falling sick, improved mood, better performance and less mental health challenges. Do universities in India have support in place for helping their students to sleep better?
  • How would he advice students that supporting themselves with better sleep and improved health is actually beneficial to them?

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!⁣

Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:⁣

💛Frequent headaches ⁣

☸️Dysfunctional cycle⁣

💮Low iron or B12 within few months⁣

💜Frequent fevers and coughs⁣

💛Bad skin⁣

☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours⁣

💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm⁣


💛☸️💮💜💛☸️💮💜💛☸️💮💜💛☸️⁣


Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.⁣

Fasting is great! But I’m seeing a lot of people who are unable to get benefits from this ancient practice. My guess is that this has a lot to do with sequence, present diet, level of stress and what’s happening within their body.⁣


💙❤️🤍💙❤️🤍💙🤍💙❤️🤍💙❤️🤍⁣


Some of the indications that the specific fasting approach you are following is not working for you are:⁣

💙Feeling more stressed and having poor resilience to stressors around you. This can include feeling weepy, angry or overwhelmed.⁣

💙Struggling with fatigue and forcing yourself to get through the fasting period irrespective of tiredness, dizziness or giddy.⁣

💙One of the greatest signs of impact is struggling with sleep. This can include inability to stay asleep and not being able to stay asleep for enough time.⁣

💙Not getting a period when you have always had a perfect cycle is a huge red flag. If your body thinks that it’s a state of emergency it shuts off reproductive function and you can miss ovulation and menstruation. I’ve actually heard women say they are happy about missing a cycle but this is really dangerous!⁣


💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍💙🤍⁣


Does this mean fasting is not good? Far from it! I call the fasting approach that I use in practice as Strategic Fasting. This refers to using fasting techniques in specific ways at specific times with specific foods in the feeding window. It can be immensely therapeutic provided you bring it in correctly. ⁣
