Today, we’re going to examine the amazing benefits of fasting. Not only is fasting the most powerful thing you can do for weight loss, but it’s also an effective natural remedy for countless health conditions. Fasting addresses the deeper root causes of many health problems: insulin resistance and mitochondrial damage.
Intermittent fasting activates growth hormone and lowers insulin, allowing you to tap into your fat cells. If insulin is high, fat can not be utilized for energy.
One of the best indicators that intermittent fasting is working is that your appetite will go away. Fasting also offers cognitive benefits. It eliminates brain fog and improves focus, concentration, and memory. It also elevates your mood and improves the immune system.
Fasting is not starving! Your stored body fat provides energy while you’re not eating. The average person has over 100,000 calories of stored energy in their fat cells.
Prolonged fasting involves fasting for a couple of days or longer. Prolonged fasting helps generate stem cells for your immune system. It also puts your body into autophagy—a state where it cleans up old damaged cells, recycling them into new cells.
Fasting repairs your metabolism—it doesn’t slow it down. It also gives the digestive system a chance to reset, resulting in less bloating and less inflammation in the gut.
Follow these steps to start intermittent fasting:
1. Go on a low-carb diet and eliminate snacks
2. Gradually push back your breakfast until your first meal is around lunch-time
3. Establish an intermittent fasting routine that allows for at least 18 hours of fasting
Once you’ve established an intermittent fasting routine, periodic prolonged fasting can increase benefits.
