What Is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent Fasting (IF) involves voluntary, controlled time periods without eating, typically lasting longer than 12 hour and potentially going as long as 14 days (under medical supervision). Intermittent fasting allows one’s body to access the energy that is stored as fat, leading to sustained weight loss and many other health benefits associated with weight-loss and improved hormone function, focusing on controlling insulin levels. IF has been shown to potentially reverse Type 2 Diabetes and slow or even prevent its adverse effects. Intermittent Fasting offers the potential for many other health benefits, including but not limited to:
Improves mental clarity and concentration
Induces weight and body fat loss
Lowers blood sugar levels
Improves insulin sensitivity
Lowers blood cholesterol
Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease
Reverses the aging process
