This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in Intermittent Fasting (IF). It simplifies the whole concept and shows you how you can get the real time benefits from practicing IF without starving yourself.
Intermittent fasting is a powerful approach to eating that is becoming very popular because it can help you lose weight without feeling hunger, and help reduce your risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. If done correctly, intermittent fasting can also lead to better sleep and lots of energy.
Intermittent fasting is a type of scheduled eating plan where you adjust your normal daily eating period to an hours-long window of time without cutting calories.
Fasting will help your body adjust from burning carbs to burning fat. Eating on a six- to eight-hour window can take a few weeks and should be done gradually. Once your body has successfully shifted into fat burning mode, it will be easier for you to fast for as much as 18 hours and still feel satiated. Your craving for sugar will slowly dissipate and managing your weight will be easier. Simple Guide To Intermittent Fasting
Fasting as little as eight days a year could have significant anti-aging benefits, even for older people and cancer patients.
“When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it does is recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged,” said study author Dr. Valter Longo, a professor of gerontology.
Fasting for an entire day or two at a time can be extremely difficult for most people, but studies show you can reap the anti-aging (and weight loss) benefits of calorie restriction through intermittent fasting, which calls for alternating days of feeding and fasting.
IF proponents say periodically skipping meals accelerates weight loss by reducing digestion-related blood sugar spikes. Research also shows intermittent fasting can protect brain health and slow down aging by limiting the oxidative and metabolic stresses that damage cells, the Wall Street Journal reported.
