Why you should consider intermittent fasting?
1. Losing weight and belly fat
2. Increases lean muscle mass and definition
A recent research study by Harvard Medical looked at the basic biology involved in our cells’ decreased ability to process energy over time. This in turn causes aging and age-related diseases. The Harvard study was published in the journal Cell Metabolism and reveals that intermittent fasting slows down the aging process. So if you want to live a longer and healthier life then maybe it’s time you skipped those breakfasts.
Aside from the physical benefits we have found with IF, there have been many studies that show the positive impact it has on your brain.
Mark Mattson, the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging, explains more in the TED talk below.
If you are interested in starting an IF then we would highly recommend Dr Michael Moseley’s The Fast Diet Book. It gives you an overview and also gives you some recipes too.Link below.
