Fitness Tip: Intermittent Fasting Works

Don’t Eat – What?

Seriously, don’t eat for 16 hours.  Intermittent Fasting works very well for a number of things.  One of those things is weight loss.  The other one of those things is health.  Fasting is excellent for improving your overall health.  The amazing thing is that your health can be improved by not eating.  Ordinarily you’d think that the only way to be healthier is to eat healthy food to exercise more often.  We all know how much you dread going to the gym anyways.  We’ll leave that topic up for discussion in future blog posts.

So.. How Do I Fast Intermittently?

Intermittent fasting is when you don’t eat for 16 hours on end then have the “perfect meal”.

The perfect meal consists of high fat, medium protein and low carbs to get your body to start burning fat in a ketogenic way.

Most people take their 16 hours by stopping their eating at 10:00pm and start eating again at 2:00pm.  Other people prefer to stop eating at 8:00pm and just eat lunch at 12:00pm.  Either way you’ll be without food for 12 hours which will purge the glycogen from your liver.  With the glycogen purged you’ll start burning fat.  Another thing that will happen while you are fasting is called “atrophagy” in which your healthy cells start to eat the sick sells.
