Benefit #1 Weight Loss

“Fasting is the first principle of medicine; fast and see the strength of the spirit reveal itself” — Rumi

People who struggle with their weight, whether it is the last 10 or the last 100 pounds, can all benefit from fasting.

Temporarily restricting the food you consume has wonderful benefits to the way our brains work, the way our hormones balance, and our ability to use fat stores on the body.

Fasting is arguably THE most powerful tool on the planet for weight loss.

Benefit #2 Improves Insulin Sensitivity

“A diet changes the way you look. A fast changes the way you see.” — Lisa Bevere

Who doesn’t know someone with type 2 Diabetes these days? It is an absolute pandemic.

Type 2 Diabetes, when you boil it down, is a lifestyle disease of consuming too much sugar and the body’s adaptation to excess sugar.

In a nutshell, when you consume foods that are easily converted to sugar, your insulin levels increase to bring the sugar out of the blood and into the cells.

Benefit #3: Improves Heart health

“I fast for greater physical and mental efficiency” — Plato

Know anyone with heart disease, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure?

Yeah. Unfortunately, me too.

High cholesterol, high blood pressure are 2 of the strongest predictors for heart disease… and…you guessed it…both can be improved with fasting.

Benefit: #4 : Cancer Prevention

In addition to looking at cancer as a mutation of genes, it is also valuable to consider that cancer may also be an endocrine disease.

In other words, that there is a hormonal component, dictated by how we move, eat, and think.

While the exact protective effects of fasting and cancer are unknown, what we know about fasting is that is can help your cells clean house through a process called autophagy.

Benefit #5: Brains that are…well…brainier

Fasting does some pretty cool stuff to the brain.

Ever feel like you can’t concentrate, and are just foggy all day long? Your ability to think, focus, and be productive are severely impaired?

Fasting has been shown to help by increasing something called BDNF — Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor — which helps with all of those cognitive related deficiencies.

Fasting is a cure all for most and it’s cheap, easy, always readily available, and fits all types of diets.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
