Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting (or Time Restricted Eating) is about coordinating both the timing of when you are going to eat and what you are going to consume during those eating windows. It’s a doable way of consuming calories in a controlled fashion that will protect and boost your mitochondrial function so that they are more efficient at making energy.  The mitochondria produce the energy necessary for your cell’s survival and functioning.  Through a series of chemical reactions, mitochondria break down glucose into an energy molecule used to fuel various other cellular processes.

Not only can Intermittent fasting help you lose weight, you can become less insulin resistant by forcing your body to burn stored fats. Fasting triggers numerous hormonal adaptations that do not happen with simple caloric reduction:

Insulin drops sharply ⇒ preventing insulin resistance

Noradrenaline rises ⇒ keeping metabolism high

High Growth Hormone rises ⇒ maintaining lean mass
