There’s a lot of information out there about fasting. Does it truly help? And if so, how?
The majority of information being presented on the web focuses on weight loss. However, this is only one small portion of the results. Fasting, when properly applied and protocol followed, has OUTSTANDING BENEFITS that anyone doing the fast and following instructions can gain. The fasting protocol is not simple and requires some dedication to fully achieve the projected results. Yes, the weight will be lost and inches of fat will be lost. You will eliminate toxin buildup in your lymphatic system and will establish the basis for better health in the future. You’ll also be in a better position to avoid or prevent some of the more nasty diseases and may even add several years to your lifetime if you continue the practice of periodic fasting. Fasting has also been shown to cure or prevent diabetes and been shown to increase energy (lean energy, not regular ATP energy). If you follow the guidelines, you will experience better cognitive powers.
How does it work? You should open your mind’s eye to the idea of a metaphysical being. I don’t like the name fasting – the name does not convey the full meaning and capability of the activity. The activity moves you out of the “day-to-day existence” and moves you into a higher plane of awareness and body functioning. So what do you call it? I don’t know. Maybe ” “Therapeutic Health Intervention”? What do you think? Leave a comment here.
When properly followed, your body moves from a sugar (glucose) energy orientation, to a more lean energy orientation fueled by enzymes your body manufactures or produces via a complex sequence of pathways (which are not normally used with glucose). Your body begins to use KETONES as the fuel source. At the same time, while being time-dependent, there is a sequence of auxiliary activities that get put into processes that are not normally used. Stem Cells are produced and are used to replace existing cells that may not be operating properly.
The task is to stay in the ketone state of reference. It is totally possible to slide back to the old you if you take back old habits. Mental and physical programs should be maintained to avoid falling backward
Is Intermittent fasting a good weight loss option for women over 30 years old?
A 30-year-old would benefit, not just from a weight loss perspective but from an overall health perspective. Women who adhere to a “Therapeutic Health Intervention” would lose weight, inches, gain energy, and increase self-awareness and a sense of being in control.
Can you talk about the 16 hours fast, 8-hour eating window? This has been the recommended version of intermittent fasting to achieve fat loss.
A 16 : 8 intervention is kinda for special needs – a lifestyle that has high stress and limited time. This is a good starting point to build your way up to longer time periods of a therapeutic health focus. For cerebral cleaning, this type can work well when applied. There are methods to stay in the proper metabolic (no or little glucose) state without going into a highly structured procedural protocol. For someone new to the therapeutic health protocol, it is probably best to stick to a highly structured process. In my opinion, I do not want to have my body moving back and forth between a glucose metabolic state to a Ketone metabolic state. I think it is preferable to stay in one metabolic state at all times. You will feel better, not fall victim to the highs and lows of daily stressors.
