Limit Your Eating

Several new studies are claiming that restricting our meals, and not eating post-afternoon, has some remarkable benefits.

Limiting our eating has produced miraculous results in these studies, where insulin levels of the body along with insulin resistance, dropped due to the semi-fasting.

Last Meal At 2 pm

Eating in your last meal of the day in the afternoon results in a 16 to 18 hour fast, which can significantly boost your health, according to research.

The tests also show that it is not hard to fast in the evening, and green tea, coffee etc. can help as a fasting aid.

Body Clocks and Cycles

Everything that we check in our bodies like blood pressure and heart rate, has a circadian rhythm.

Our round-the-clock lifestyle, when light, food, and life is available and thriving 24 hours a day, leads to circadian disruption, resulting in many ailments like heart disease and diabetes.

Social Jetlag

Just like normal jetlag, we all experience social jetlag. Weekends and holidays result in partying, staying up, or eating and drinking at odd hours.

One needs to keep up the body schedule in order, waking up in the morning at a regular time, while keeping decreasing stimulation the night before, to provide proper rest to the mind and body.

Intermittent fasting for weight loss

When we fast, Insulin levels fall, signaling the body to start burning stored energy as no more is coming through food. Blood glucose falls, so the body must now pull glucose out of storage to burn for energy.

In essence, intermittent fasting allows the body to use its stored energy. 

Health benefits of intermittent fasting
  • Weight and body fat loss
  • Lowered blood insulin and sugar levels 
  • Possibly reversal of type 2 diabetes
  • Possibly improved mental clarity and concentration
  • Possibly increased energy
  • Possibly increased growth hormone, at least in the short term
  • Possibly an improved blood cholesterol profile
  • Possibly a reduction in the risk of Alzheimer’s disease 
  • Possibly longer life
  • Possibly activation of cellular cleansing by stimulating autophagy
  • Possibly reduction of inflammation
