Naturally mastering your body's needs.
THE ULTIMATE BEGINNER'S GUIDE
If you are searching for a way to begin to lose weight, cleanse your body in a natural way, or just make a step towards more mindful eating, intermittent fasting may be for you.
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting, with several different fasting methods to choose from, all of which split the day or week into eating periods and fasting periods.
Intermittent fasting isn’t difficult, and unlike dieting, allows you to approach the start of a new, healthy lifestyle that happens to help your body rid itself of negatives through control that you give yourself, not your cravings.
TAKE BACK CONTROL OVER HUNGER
Fasting has many positive aspects and impacts, but there are also a few negatives to keep in mind. A major backlash to beginning a process of intermittent fasting is the idea that your body is on an eating schedule now that will likely not enjoy going through a drastic process of change. If you are used to eating whenever your body tells you to, it is likely that your body will react negatively to being ignored
TIME PROVEN AND SCIENTIFICALLY SUPPORTED
Humans have actually been fasting for a long time, and its estimated that the practice has existed for thousands of years. Sometimes it was done out of necessity, when there simply wasn't any food available. There were not grocery stores like there are today, and food was scarce and access to it was unpredictable. In other instances, it was done for religious reasons. Various religions, including Islam, Christianity and Buddhism, mandate some form of fasting. Humans and other animals also often instinctively fast when sick. Clearly, there is nothing unnatural about fasting, and our bodies are very well equipped to handle extended periods of not eating. That being said, there are ways to do it that ensure healthy, natural results, rather than resisting and refusing our body the things it needs to function properly. When fasted, we get significant reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as a drastic increase in human growth hormone. Many people do intermittent fasting in order to lose weight, as it is a very simple and effective way to restrict calories and burn fat. Others do it for the metabolic health benefits, as it can improve various different risk factors and health markers. Our body, when fueled with what it needs to function, responds positively to fasting because we don’t give it excess amounts of food that it is then forced to store beyond its desire.
GIVE YOUR BODY TIME TO ADJUST
Your body does not need to be eating all day, no matter what time, and on the schedule your hunger dictates. The thought of skipping out breakfast or late night snacks is tough to swallow because they are so ingrained in our diets. If you skip breakfast for a week while beginning a process of intermittent fasting, you will feel a change in your body, and at first, it will be quite negative. Give it time; the science behind fasting is there and your body will catch on.
DIFFERENT FASTING METHODS
A PLAN FOR EVERYONE
Three of the most popular methods of fasting are the 16/8 method, the eat-stop-eat method, and the 5:2 diet. The 16/8 Method: Fast for 16 hours each day, for example by only eating between noon and 8pm. Eat-Stop-Eat means that once or twice a week, don't eat anything from dinner one day, until dinner the next day, resulting in a 24 hour fast. Finally, the 5:2 Diet requires that during 2 days of the week, you only eat only about 500–600 calories.
THE HEALTHY NATURAL ANSWER TO MINDFUL EATING
Each method practices restriction and control in a healthy way. As long as you stick to healthy foods your body can use in an appropriate way, restricting your eating window and fasting from time to time can have some very impressive health benefits. Intermittent fasting is an effective way to lose fat and improve metabolic health, while simplifying your life at the same time.Diets that force you to constrict yourself can be challenging, and while an intermittent fasting plan will be a transition, your body is naturally equipped to handle the periods of fasting, and in fact, will benefit tremendously from the periods of non-consumption. Once made a habit, you will feel the benefits pouring out of your body, and understand what it means to eat mindfully and responsibly.
