Using Intermittent Fasting As Dieting Pattern

Intermittent fasting (fasting on purpose) is a way of eating where you are incorporating time restrictions into your eating schedule and creating a dieting pattern. Intermittent fasting is a strategy to miss meals, consume the required calories at a given moment of the day, and choosing not to eat during the rest. According to Dr. Mark Hayman, the intermittent fasting is an excellent weight loss strategy for people suffering from a high resistant rate for fat loss.

How Does It Work?

With intermittent fasting, a one applies the same daily fasting time and stimulates the benefits of fasting through speeding up the metabolism to burn fat. Some people find skipping breakfast a solid technique, and the easiest way to apply this technique is to drink a cup of coffee with no cream or sugar in the morning to force the body to shift the usage of the required fuel from glucose to fat to lose fat. To understand the mechanism of fat loss during intermittent fasting, we need to understand the difference between the fed state and the fasted state.The fed state is the pre-absorbing state that starts by eating the food, which lasts three to five hours in our stomach and combined with high levels of insulin and low levels of burning fat. The post- absorbing state start after eating the meal and last eight to twelve hours, and your body starts processing the food in this fasting state that combined low levels of insulin. Fasting forces our bodies to burn fat in this process; this is impossible to occur during the normal eating, schedule. Using the intermittent fasting will help you lose fat without changing what you eat, how much you eat, or how often you exercise.Drinking hot or cold drinks that do not contain calories is acceptable during the intermittent fasting. Avoid milk, cream, and sugar. It might seem hard, but you can assign 10 hours of intermittent fasting daily and sleep about five of those hours. Diabetic patients are weight loss resistance, and intermittent fasting can be a great experiment for them. Consider to include in your meal lots of vegetables and high-quality protein. I recommend Chicken Breast, Tuna, Eggs, Olive Oil, Avocado, Almonds, Berries, Apples, and Green salads.

The benefits of intermittent fasting

Research data shows that people, who lose a significant amount of weight, will regain the lost weight after five years and might exceed their original weight. Thus, utilizing the intermittent fasting allows people to fit diet into their lifestyle and stick to it. Fat loss is great, but it is not the only reason to try intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting normalizes insulin and leptin sensitivity, normalize ghrelin levels, lower triglyceride levels, improve biomarkers of disease, reduce inflammation, and preserve memory functioning and learning ability.

  1. Intermittent Fasting Is Simple

The simplicity and stress reduction of the intermittent fasting provides relaxation and joy. Fasting decreases the accumulation of oxidative radicals in the cell. Thereby prevents oxidative damage to cellular proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids associated with aging and disease. You do not have to worry about preparing breakfast or being late to work because of the breakfast, just drink water or coffee and start your day. Utilizing the intermittent fasting allows you for prepping, cook and worry about one meal, which is simpler than any other dieting techniques.

  1. Intermittent Fasting Will Extend Your Life

I am a coffee drinker, and I do not mind to starve for a few hours, drink coffee and live longer. Science proved that restriction calories consumption extend the healthy lifespan, Fasting induces a cellular stress response in which cells up-regulate the expression of genes that increase the capacity to cope with stress and resist disease and aging.

  1. Intermittent Fasting Prevent Cancer

Intermittent fasting stimulates growth hormone production, which is essential for reducing the risk of developing some types of cancer. Regular eating triggers the body to produce new cells, which can speed up the growth of certain cancer cells. Fasting lessens the possibility of new cells becoming cancerous. Also, studies have indicated that when combined with chemotherapy, intermittent fasting can help tear down the protection that prevents the immune system from attacking breast cancer and skin cancer cells.

  1. Intermittent Fasting Improves Cardiac Function

A lower body fat percentage has a significant influence on the heart function. Researchers conducted studies on Mormon populations that show lower cardiac mortality, attributed to Mormons eating habits; Mormons do not smoke, drink, or eat large amounts of meat. Also, Mormons practice intermittent fasting. Having less body fat takes the strain off the kidneys, lower blood pressure and increases the body’s production of growth hormones. Combined, these benefits could improve heart function.I wish you a healthy life and happiness.
