Intermittent fasting and its benefits

What is intermittent fasting ?

An eating pattern where you cycle between eating and fasting. Intermittent fasting is not about what food to eat  and what to avoid but its when you should eat them. Most of the diet plans restrict where the calories come from.
Intermittent fasting involves cycling between eating and fasting.In essence, this refers to fasting for about 16 hours, and eating for about 8 hours.

Research links intermittent fasting to benefits including:

• weight loss
• Improved health
• Increases HGH levels.
• Reduce blood pressure and blood sugar levels

Apart from its  primary benefit i.e weight loss ,  In this  article we will discuss the top six potential benefits of intermittent fasting on our health.

1. Easy to avoid junk food

It is super easy to avoid junk food, as you will feel satisfied for the major part of the day. This is due to the fact that you will be eating large quantum of food and satisfying meals. It is a great way to manage hunger and avoid junk food addiction.

2. Reduce Levels of insulin

Studies have  shown that you will be able to boost your metabolism short term, and lower your insulin levels in the long run  by intermittent fasting .Reducing levels of insulin will make  it easier for the body to use stored fat.

3. Increase in HGH levels

Human growth hormone, or HGH  levels of the body are  dramatically increased .Higher HGH levels boost muscle building,repair of damaged tissues,boost metabolism and burn fat. HGH also benefits the quality and appearance of skin.

4. Lowers down the blood sugar and blood pressure

There are evidence and studies to back up the fact that intermittent fasting lowers down the blood sugar levels and blood pressure.

5. Reduce risk of type 2 diabetes

Research suggests that intermittent fasting could have a variety of health benefits. For example, intermittent fasting may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

6.Healthy heart

 Intermittent fasting may reduce bad cholesterol, blood triglycerides, blood sugar and insulin resistance — all risk factors for heart disease. This all leads to a healthy heart and less prone to heart disease.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
