Let’s talk about intermittent fasting. What is it, exactly?
Well, it isn’t really a diet, because it’s not about restricting what you eat. Intermittent fasting is more of a framework guiding how you eat. It’s popular because it’s super simple to follow – you’re not counting carbs or macros. You’re just sticking to the framework of “eat” or “don’t eat”.
Fasting has been around for thousands of years — waaaay before a single Kardashian emerged from the primordial goo and made it trendy. Some people do it for religious purposes. Others do it to clear their heads, to feel connected to the earth or to God. Only recently, however, have people begun to do it for health benefits.
So, what’s up with intermittent fasting to lose weight? Is it cool? Or nah?
For starters, it’s a great way to regulate hormonal balance. I’ve found that most people I work with are in a state of insulin resistance. (By the way, if you have ever wondered whether or not you are insulin resistant, short of going to the doctor and having expensive tests done, go to n8trainingsystems.com/quiz to get your glycogen efficiency score.)
On today’s podcast, we’re going to talk even more about why intermittent fasting is GREAT if you are insulin resistant or insulin sensitive. Also, find out why it helps with focus and mental clarity.
I’ll also answer the following questions:
