Give intermittent fasting a go!
People try it for health reasons and for boosting weight loss.
Intermittent fasting is not, however, a new concept. Some cultures do it for religious reasons, some as a lifestyle choice. It's also often a part of medical procedures and treatments in hospitals. Last but not least, fasting is something organisms are well-adapted to.
In 2014, Mark P. Mattson PhD and Valter D. Longo from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine performed extensive research on fasting and were astonished by the results:
Humans are daytime creatures. Some of our bodily functions are deeply connected with the sun.
Once our metabolism slows down in the evening, we're no longer able to make the most of the food we consume. It becomes harder for insulin to manage our blood sugar, the stomach has a harder time digesting, half-digested food will stay in our gut longer, and formation of fat reserves will be optimal.
It all depends on how long you fast and your body composition. The first results of fasting are noticeable after 12-14 hours of not eating.
If you fast for 16 hours, the positive changes will be subtle:
Fasting for a longer period will have a bigger effect.
If you fast for a few days, things would get more intense though. After a few days of uneasiness, hunger and tiredness you will start feeling lighter, more lively and energetic than before.
Intermittent fasting is a well-researched practice – on animals and people.
While simple organism and mice studies showed that intermittent fasting really CAN elongate life, "in humans it helps reduce obesity, hypertension, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis," wrote Mark P. Mattson PhD and Valter D. Longo.
A study on mice showed that adiponectin levels – or the "skinny hormone" – increase dramatically as a response to fasting. When levels of glucose in the liver get low, insulin resistance lowers, making the metabolism more efficient, the formation of fat reserves decreased, and fat burning optimal.
Think about what would be easier for you – not eating breakfast or enjoying an early dinner and avoiding any snacking afterwards?
When you decide which part of the day you’ll be eating, start pushing towards that hour by hour.
If you skip breakfast, let’s say, and eat only between noon and 8 PM, start by slowly eating your breakfast later and later until you get to noon.
Nurture the new habit and drink plenty of water while you’re not eating.
