Some kinds of intermittent fasting can be done every day, while others are only meant for three to five-day periods. Each style carries its benefits. The world’s richest man Elon Musk reduced 9 pounds through Intermittent fasting. Here are the points which reflect how intermittent fasting can be beneficial for you.

Fat Loss

During intermittent fasting, your body adapts better to burning fat for energy because there is a shorter window of time for eating, which causes insulin levels to drop, resulting in adipocytes (fat cells) releasing more fatty acids. Because glucose and glycogen levels are lower, the body uses these fatty acids to generate energy in place of storing them in fat cells.

Lower The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes 

Recent studies emerge to support the use of intermittent fasting as a means of lowering blood glucose in diabetics and leading to overall improved health outcomes. Thus, intermittent fasting could be highly protective for people at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Improves Metabolism 

When done the right way, fasting helps improve metabolism and promote metabolic flexibility where your body has the machinery to use glucose or fats effectively for energy. Intermittent fasting trains your mind and digestive system to get used to eating what you need for the day in a smaller window of time. This promotes a healthy and proportional intake of food and calories. People who become accustomed to fasting and a ketogenic diet quickly learn to eat just when hungry, rather than according to pre-established mealtimes or impulsive and thoughtless eating.

Slows Signs Of Ageing

More research demonstrates that intermittent fasting has the capacity to lower blood pressure, minimise oxidative damage, increase insulin sensitivity, and slow the ageing process.

Clears Out Dead Cells

Fasting triggers autophagy, a process in which the body eliminates dead cells and regenerates damaged proteins throughout the body.

Autophagy is an extremely important and natural process that plays a significant role in preventing diseases such as cancer, diabetes,liver disease, and much more.

Intermittent fasting is healthy, with benefits from better brain function to protein-sparing weight loss and cancer prevention, and best of all it’s easy.
