Many of us are looking for that one diet that won’t drive us absolutely up a wall. We need to lose the weight, but why torture ourselves? Maybe intermittent fasting isn’t for you, but you won’t know until you try. Not only that, many people actually prefer fasting to any of the mainstream diets…just a thought. Here are some of the benefits to intermittent fasting.
Cleanses the system
In one day your body starts cleansing. In one 24-hour fast your body does some cleansing. By the end of the day you are feeling sluggish and slow. That’s because your body is ridding itself of waste and toxins. It’s being pushed out of your fat cells and your digestive system and into your bloodstream. This is a good thing. You are getting healthier. In addition to that your digestive system is getting a break. You’re giving it a chance to catch up, and once it’s caught up it can expel any extra waste.
You’re releasing HGH
Human Growth Hormone is the fountain of youth hormone that improves your health in every way. It improves fat loss dramatically, it improves muscle gain dramatically, and it even helps with wrinkles, and makes your skin healthier. If you do some research on HGH you’ll find that the best exercise to do to release HGH is interval training. Interval training gets your heart rate up to its highest peak. This increases HGH produce by 400%. Good huh? Well when you do one 24-hour fast, your HGH produce increases to 2000%. The HGH produce starts to taper off however after 24 hours so I recommend just sticking to the 24-hour fast.
Fat Loss and Muscle Gain
If you look at a marathon runner you’ll see that he has little or no muscle as opposed to Olympic sprinters who have an abundance in muscle and very little fat. This is because of HGH. As a side benefit your strength gains will go up. I find that when I’m in a fasted state my lifts are all stronger. I’m able to lift more weight, do more reps, and go for a longer period of time. On top of that they say all fasted cardio and fasted exercise is more effective than regular training. Then you can pig out afterwards.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading about intermittent fasting. More than any other method, intermittent fasting allows you to release the max amount of HGH. Implement this in your workout routine. And enjoy the results!
