THE BENEFITS OF INTERMITTENT FASTING


The hot topic!!

I often get asked how I manage to maintain my physique and condition all year round. Well, there is no secret…

Actually maybe there is one: Intermittent fasting.

Now, I am not saying that we all should be doing it, but it works for some people and works well for me. It has profound health benefits and makes your day-to -day life easier.

There are different approaches to intermittent fasting, it is up to you to choose your fasting hours. However,the end result is the same: instead of running on glucose or simple sugar, your body will run on this now unavailable energy source which therefore creates fat burn and weight loss.

Here are the 4 components that are affected while you practice intermittent fasting:
  • Insulin levels: Blood levels of insulin drop significantly, which facilitates fat burning
  • Human growth hormone: The blood levels of growth hormone may increase as much as 5-fold Higher levels of this hormone facilitate fat burning and muscle gain, and have numerous other benefits
  • Cellular repair: The body induces important cellular repair processes, such as removing waste material from cells
  • Gene expression: There are beneficial changes in several genes and molecules related to longevity and protection against disease

Overall and in normal words, this fasting process makes your meal preparation simpler as your “eating window” is much shorter than usual and you end up eating fewer calories while booting your metabolism.

Last but not least, not only does it make you lose weight and body fat, some studies also show that intermittent fasting can reduce oxidative damage and inflammation in the body, as well as improving numerous risk factors for heart disease such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglycerides and inflammatory markers.
