In this video, I want to share with you the power of intermittent fasting and how to do intermittent fasting for weight loss. Intermittent fasting is a tool. It’s not a diet, it doesn’t tell you what to eat, and it’s not about cutting calories. It’s a pattern of eating and not eating. It’s changing when you eat and when you don’t eat. Intermittent fasting is one of the most important factors when it comes to weight loss.
It influences two main hormones in the body: 1. Stimulates growth hormone (anti-aging and fat burning) 2. Decreases insulin (in the presence of insulin you can’t lose weight) Intermittent fasting can help heal insulin resistance. This is a situation where the pancreas is pumping out way more insulin than you need. This can be a very destructive condition. With intermittent fasting, it’s best to start slow and gradually fast for longer lengths of time.
For example, if you consume 5 or 6 meals a day, you may want to start by doing 3 meals a day and cutting out snacks. After that, you may want to do a pattern of 16 hours of fasting with an 8-hour eating window. It’s ideal to go at least 4 hours after you wake up before your first meal.
The real power of intermittent fasting happens at night while you’re sleeping and in the morning. To take it to the next level, you would want to gradually go to two meals per day. You would do 20 hours of fasting with a four-hour eating window. But, it will take time to do this.
