What comes to your mind when you hear the word fasting? I used to think of fad diets and starvation but intermittent fasting isn’t either of those things. As a matter of fact, there may be more health benefits to intermittent fasting than just weight loss. I’ve been trying the Lipotropic 16:8 diet and I was surprised, not just with the results but also with how easy it is to stick to the diet.
Fasting is often associated with starvation, but starvation means starvation. It doesn’t mean fasting for 16 hours a day or not eating a meal for a day. Skipping a meal or short-term fasting doesn’t make our body go into starvation mode.
8 OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF INTERMITTENT FASTING
There are many benefits of intermittent fasting. In this article we will cover eight of the many benefits of intermittent fasting and talk a little about the Lipotropic 16:8 diet and how adding the Advanced Fat Loss Kit may help your hunger, energy and metabolize fat.
1.) FAT LOSS
You can help your body reach ketosis by fasting or eating a special diet. Your body can reach ketosis faster by fasting, which allows your body to burn through fat reserves.
Fasting not only helps you lose weight by decreasing the amount of food you eat but it also increases your metabolic rate. Giving your digestive system a rest with intermittent fasting can give your metabolism a boost to burn calories more efficiently. Poor digestion can affect your body’s ability to metabolize food and burn fat. Intermittent fasting can help you regulate digestion and promote a healthy bowel function.
However, I think it’s important to note long-term fasting can slow down your metabolism.
3.) DECREASE SIGNS OF AGING
We all want to look a little younger right? Well, with intermittent fasting you might just be able to do that because of the extra growth hormone that is released.
4.) IMPROVE INSULIN SENSITIVITY
When your body is sensitive to insulin it works better because the less of the carbohydrates you consume is converted to fat. When your body is more sensitive to insulin it can least to weight loss as well as lean muscle tone.
5.) INCREASE BRAIN FUNCTION
Fasting can improve your brain function due to an increased production of a protein known as a brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).
Fasting can help you improve hunger because your body will experience real hunger. Most of us eat every few hours and never experience true hunger. Fasting helps us experience real hunger and helps to regulate the hormones in our body so we receive the correct signals letting us know we are full. Fasting works somewhat like a reset button and when our hormones are working correctly we tend to get full faster.
7.) CLEAR SKIN
Intermittent fasting can give your body a chance to clean toxins and help regulate the function of organs like the liver, kidneys and more.
8.) INCREASE THE RELEASE OF NATURAL GROWTH HORMONE
If you don’t already know growth hormone is a hormone that our body produces that helps with the loss of body fat and lean muscle tissue building. Intermittent fasting can elevate the levels of the grown hormone.
Those are only eight of the benefits of fasting. Now, let’s talk about the Lipotropic 16:8 diet, the Advanced Fat Loss Kit and how they can help you on your journey.
My Advanced Fat Loss Kit order included a FREE Lipotropic 16:8 Diet Guide which includes easy to follow step by step directions, sample eating schedule, helpful food suggestions, dos and don’ts, and more. The guide is rated 5 stars by customers. To learn more about the guide visit PhenterPro.com.
The Lipotropic 16:8 diet helps you learn how to balance your body’s fat metabolism and explains how fasting is a form of exercise. Since exercise decreases blood glucose and insulin levels and increases insulin sensitivity, hydrolysis, glucagon, growth hormone and you can actually accomplish the same thing with fasting it’s somewhat of an exercise for your metabolism.
If you are wondering what the 16:8 stands for its simple-16 hours of fasting and an 8-hour eating window.
The thing I like most about the 16:8 style of eating is that I can easily stick to it with my busy lifestyle. To show you I’ll share an example of how the diet may look. Let’s say you wake up at 6am each morning and work an 8-5 job:
- 1st meal between 11am-12pm
- 2nd meal between 2-3pm
- 3rd meal at 6pm
That’s just an example of what your eating schedule may look like. Of course, you can customize it to fit your lifestyle. There are no crazy rules to follow as far as when you eat your meals, you can eat 2-3 times a day when it’s convenient and if it changes from day to day it’s okay.
So don’t let the term fasting scar you. It’s not nearly as difficult to stick to as you would think and becomes part of our routine rather quickly.
Of course, you’ll still want to focus on getting a good balance of mixed proteins, carbs, and healthy fats but the plan isn’t about restriction but more about living a healthy lifestyle with a flexible eating plan that works for you. However, it’s extremely important to remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water daily. I’ve found that sparkling water is extremely helpful when I’m fasting.
So what’s the Advanced Fat Loss Kit for? The Advanced Fat Loss Kit can help you by making the 16:8 eating schedule easier by combining the appetite suppression power of PhenterPro SR with two fat metabolism solutions, Lipotropic CLA and 7kv2.0. The advanced fat loss kit helps control hunger, gives you a boost of energy and metabolize fat.
Adding the Advanced Fat Loss Kit to the Lipotropic 16:8 diet is as easy as 1-2-3:
1.) Take PhenterPro SR as directed to boost energy, control hunger, and boost your metabolism. Using PhenterPro SR daily with the Lipotropic 16:8 Diet program can help you reduce your hunger and food cravings while giving you a nice boost of energy and giving your metabolism a boost.
2.) The 7-K 2.0 is made with 7-KETO, which if you are not already aware, 7-KETO has been shown to help us improve fat loss. As a matter of fact, it can increase fat loss up to three times compared to just diet and exercise alone. 7-K 2.0 contains EGCG (green tea extract) as well as ChromeMate® to help elevate your resting metabolic rate. Yes, it helps you burn more calories 25 hours a day.
3.) Lipotropic CLA helps works to block dietary fat storage in the body to maximize your fat loss and support utilization of fatty acids in the body as a fuel source so you are always burning fat faster. Using Lipotropic CLA can help you discourage the formation of new fat cells to help improve your chances of not just losing those unwanted pounds but keeping them off for good.
