Problematic Dietary Guidelines

  • Dietary guidelines, which came in the 1970s, instructed people to cut the fat from their diet, and increase the carbohydrates. Eating more of bread and sugar has contributed significantly to the obesity crisis thereafter.
  • The concept of the 'anytime and anything' diet is courtesy the snack-food companies and dietitians/doctors who advised us to eat multiple times a day. This is a big contributor to the obesity crisis along with the rise in Diabetes.

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.

Intermittent fasting is based on the idea that when you reduce your calorie intake for limited stretches of time, your body will use its stored fat for energy. Intermittent fasting...

Time-restricted eating

One intermittent fasting method is known as time-restricted eating: A person consumes all of their calories for the day within an 8-to-12-hour window. You might eat breakfast at 8 AM, including coffee, and finishing your dinner by 6 PM.

In an experiment, two sets of mice were fed the same diet and ate the same number of calories a day. One set had access to food for 24 hours, and the other group had access for only 8 hours. After 18 weeks, the group that could eat all hours showed signs of insulin resistance and had liver damage. The mice who ate in an 8-hour window did not have the condition and weighed 28 percent less than the other group.

Food at the right time

Many of the human body’s processes are tied to our circadian rhythms.

Eating food at the right time can nurture us, and healthy food at the wrong time can be junk food because it gets stored as fat instead of being used as fuel.

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
