How Can Fasting Transform Your Body?
Fasting is a practice that has been around for centuries. Only recently has the scientific community has begun to take an interest in its potential health benefits. Studies have shown that fasting can have a profound impact on the body, including decreased inflammation, improved brain function, and reduced risk of chronic disease.
While there are many different ways to fast, the most common is intermittent fasting, which involves cycles of fasting and eating. There are a variety of health benefits associated with intermittent fasting, including weight loss, and improved mental clarity.
There are other benefits to intermittent fasting beyond weight loss. These include improved insulin sensitivity and increased cellular repair through autophagy.
The Fasting Mimicking Diet
A new way of fasting that has shown remarkable results is the Fasting Mimicking Diet, first described by Dr. Valter Longo at U.S.C. This protocol provides all the benefits of a strict water fast without the uncomfortable side effects.
The concept is fairly simple: a five-day fasting protocol that provides just enough low-glycemic, plant-based food to stave off hunger, while still putting the body's metabolism in a state of ketosis, which stimulates the autophagy process. The results have demonstrated that all the benefits of fasting can be obtained while still eating real food.
