INTERMITTENT FASTING 7 FALSE MYTHS

INTERMITTENT FASTING: 7 FALSE MYTHS

 

There are many Hollywood icons who practice intermittent fasting, such as Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry. But what is intermittent fasting? It is a dietary strategy in which a period of feeding is intentionally alternated with a period of fasting. You do this already when you sleep, but intermittent fasting tends to widen your normal fasting window by lengthening the part of the day or alternating fasting days with feeding days during the week.

There are different approaches and above all, there are different false myths. First of all, DIY is not worth it. You have to be followed by an expert. Keep reading to discover seven false myths linked to intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting and false myths

  • It is miraculous to lose weight. True and False. Intermittent fasting can be used to facilitate weight loss, however, it is not a guaranteed result. Achieving an overall calorie deficit, consuming fewer calories than those that your body burns, is what produces weight loss. Therefore, if you consume more calories than those that your body burns in the meal window, you will not see a weight decrease. 
  • All intermittent fasts are the same. False. There are different types of intermittent fasting plans. The different forms of fasting are not the same, partly because some are easier than others, but also because some phases adapt better to the natural circadian rhythm of our body, thus lowering insulin levels, increasing the hormones burning fat and decreasing appetite. Read the article at this link to find out about different types of fasting.
    • Does not mean to skip breakfast. Many people who follow this diet tend to schedule windows to eat later during the day, which allows greater flexibility and to manage hunger and cravings.
    • You can eat whatever you want during the meal window. No. The meal window is not a time to binge or recover lost food opportunities, it is a time to have a well-balanced diet. 
    • Intermittent fasting slows down the metabolism. False. In contrast, fasting, when it is done for short intervals of time, such as 16:8, has been shown to actually increase metabolism and improve its adaptability. If the body does not receive food, it obviously cannot drop the metabolism to zero. It must obviously burn calories to stay alive. Some hormones make it possible to switch from the energy source of sugars to that of fats. During intermittent fasting, the body does not reduce the basic metabolism and begins to take nourishment from fat reserves.
    • You should also limit your water intake. No, it is false. Restricting water is not a good idea, rather you must consume all that you feel the need.
    • It causes a dangerous lowering of blood sugar. Our body has many mechanisms to keep blood sugar levels monitored. During intermittent fasting, it takes glycogen from the liver and transforms it into glucose to be put into circulation. What happens when the glycogen reserves run out? The body takes glycerol from fats, then inside the liver through the process called "glucogenesis" turns glycerol into glucose and puts it into the bloodstream. It means that the sugar level does not drop dangerously during fasting. Obviously clinical or particular cases are another matter.

      Contacting a recovery agent would probably be more of a lame joke to me than an advice a couple of months back before I made a slip and lost $970,600 in the sad process unfortunately. All options came down to contacting a recovery agent and I did. I got details about Mr. JAMES MCKAY WIZARD RECOVERY from my long hours of surfing the web. I saw a post about him on reddit and I decided to give it a shot. Since I do not have any other option and nothing more to loose at this point. I immediately contacted him and that’s the best decision I’ve made. I would have lost all my retirement benefits to these fraudsters. He got the money back swiftly, it was barely a challenge to him. His work is up to par and I recommend him, I have introduced a couple of my other friends to him too. you can contact him on jamesmckaywizard at gmail dot com or WhatsApp +31647340446. you can do well to thank me later.

      GETTING RICHER WITH DIGITAL ASSETS IS A DICEY BET

      This is my warning call to people out there: if you have no idea what fiat currencies is, just avoid it completely. I lost and recovered a whooping sum of $850,000 BTC to a fake investment platform few months ago. The investment plan initially lured me with the promise of big profits and a guaranteed safe ROI. But as time passed, I realized that the investment was a complete scam. I felt dissatisfied and powerless after losing access to my money. It was a terrible experience and I thought I had no choice left. I searched for some fiat recovery companies online and read customers recommendations and reviews. After doing some diligent researches, I found the services of IRON CLAD CYBER RECOVERY EXPERTS worthwhile. My case was investigated and all funds were recovered. Their performance was technically satisfactory. Their efficiency and commitment to customers is truly unmatched. I appreciate them for their help. I wish to recommend them to everyone out there caught up in systemic scams. Please contact IRON CLAD CYBER RECOVERY EXPERTS for timely recovery.

      I almost lost my marriage when I watched my wife turned into a total stranger and left the kids and I. I was so furious knowing I had done everything possible to ensure I sustained my marriage as a father and husband. The terrible fights we had traumatized me and I couldn’t function properly as a man. I kept on trying to find out what made her did what she did which made me contacted Dr Isikolo. I was surprised to have found out that she was under a huge manipulation from a man who wanted to ruin my marriage with her and take her away from me. Dr Isikolo had to intervene and fixed the problem thereby ensuring she was rescued from the claws of the dark magic charm they used on her. Knowing that I was able to get my family together again with the help of Dr Isikolo gives me joy and I am forever thankful to him.
