This Will Make You Try Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is not a new concept but it has been getting a lot of attention. While the word fasting may be scary, intermittent fasting is actually an easy way to do fasting, get health benefits and not give up food. When I started looking into intermittent fasting, I was shocked to learn all of the health benefits.

Let's face it, most of us fast because we want to lose weight. While I will cover how weight loss and weight management is achieved via intermittent fasting, I want to make sure I also provided a summary of other key benefits.

  • Reduction in Inflammation: Some studies show reductions in markers of inflammation, a key driver of many chronic diseases.

  • Heart health: Intermittent fasting may reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol, blood triglycerides, inflammatory markers, blood sugar and insulin resistance — all risk factors for heart disease

  • Brain health: Intermittent fasting may aid the growth of new nerve cells. It may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease

  • Gut Health: Environmental changes and stressors have been shown to change the microbiome, which in turn can have a dramatic effect on gut healing. Fasting is especially restorative for a leaky gut, which is described as when the intestine wall exhibits excessive permeability. Fasting provides a break from digesting food, allowing the body time to “heal and seal” the gut lining.

Improving gut health is a health benefit I was not expecting when I started fasting. But my experience has proven gut health is a benefit. Not only have I seen a reduction in gas and bloating, but I am digesting food better even when I am not fasting. How do you know if your gut is unhealthy and will benefit from intermittent fasting?

Do you suffer from gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, lack of energy, moodiness, skin rashes, abdominal pain, anxiety, frequent belching or stomach gurgling? If you answered yes to any of these symptoms, you will benefit from intermittent fasting. Fasting is just one part of my fully customized 5 Step program that will eliminate the embarrassing effects you said yes to only moments ago.
