Benefits of Intermittent Fasting
The meal plan with my 30-day program focuses on utilizing a method of losing the weight through intermittent fasting. Timing our meals through this method, has led us to better body weight, hormone regulation, blood sugar and cholesterol levels, sleep patterns and other metabolic improvements. I am a HUGE advocate for intermittent fasting and wanted to share some of those details with you. If you haven't heard of it this blog should be of significant relevance to you.
During fasting the following occurs in your body:
· Insulin levels: Blood levels of insulin drop significantly, which facilitates fat burning (1Trusted Source).
· Human growth hormone: The blood levels of growth hormone may increase as much as 5-fold (2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source). Higher levels of this hormone facilitate fat burning and muscle gain, and have numerous other benefits (4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source).
· Cellular repair: The body induces important cellular repair processes, such as removing waste material from cells (6Trusted Source).
· Gene expression: There are beneficial changes in several genes and molecules related to longevity and protection against disease (7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source).
When you fast, insulin levels drop and human growth hormone increases. Your cells also initiate important cellular repair processes and change which genes they express.
Our prescribed 30-day meal program will focus on following this method. The reason I advise this method is because I am living proof it works. It is the factor that can take away the last 5lbs you want to lose versus the 100 lbs you want to lose.
You have to switch up how your body thinks it is to respond. You are putting yourself in a state, where your body is not running your life anymore. You are now in charge of your life and what you eat. You are restricting yourself to not eat before a certain hour and showing your body who really is in control.

Need to Know a Bit more:
Intermittent fasting works on both sides of the calorie equation. It boosts your metabolic rate (increases calories out) and reduces the amount of food you eat (reduces calories in).
It has been found that intermittent fasting caused less muscle loss than continuous calorie restriction.
This about your waist goals. People also lose 4-7% of their waist circumference, which indicates that they lost lots of belly fat, the harmful fat in the abdominal cavity that causes disease.
Now, let’s redirect toward genetics. One of intermittent fasting main features is how it interacts with high blood sugar levels in the context of insulin resistance. Anything that reduces insulin resistance should help lower blood sugar levels and protect against type 2 diabetes. It’s been proven; intermittent fasting has been shown to have major benefits for insulin resistance and lead to an impressive reduction in blood sugar levels. In past studies on intermittent fasting, fasting blood sugar has been reduced by 3-6%, while fasting insulin has been reduced by 20-31%. This implies that intermittent fasting is a protective for people prone to type 2 diabetes.
