Why You Should Intermediate Fast If You Are Looking To Lose Body Fat

Why You Should Intermediate Fast If You Are Looking To Lose Body Fat

Intermediate fasting is a pattern of eating in which a person abstains from food for a certain period of time, typically for 12-18 hours. This type of fasting has been found to have several health benefits, including weight loss, improved insulin sensitivity, and decreased inflammation.

Weight loss is one of the most popular reasons for trying intermediate fasting. When the body is in a fasted state, it burns stored fat for energy instead of relying on the food we eat. This can lead to a reduction in overall body fat and weight loss. Additionally, fasting can improve insulin sensitivity, which means the body becomes better at using insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. This can help prevent diabetes and other metabolic disorders.

Intermediate fasting can also have anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but chronic inflammation can lead to a host of health problems, including heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders. Fasting has been found to reduce inflammation by lowering levels of inflammatory markers in the blood.

Fasting also has been reported to improve brain function. The brain needs energy to function properly and during fasting, the body releases a protein called BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) which helps to improve cognitive function, memory, and learning.

As a nutrition specialist and bodybuilder, I have recommended 16 hours of fasting or 16 hours off and 8 hours on to fully take advantage of resetting your metabolism and hormone optimization.

In conclusion, intermediate fasting is a proven way that one can lose body fat and inflammation. With this being said, you should always consult your doctor when starting a new diet plan that you are unsure about. Everybody is different and I would not recommend this diet to those who are malnourished or have any previous health problems.
