I have been a keen follower of Intermittent Fasting since the 19th of January 2019. And I follow a 16 hours plus fasting schedule for at least 6 days in a week.
I have some clear positive results which I thought I should share here for my friends.
For one, I have lost some 15 pounds in weight. I feel I am good with many health indicators and measures. My overall discipline has improved tremendously. And most importantly, I look good in the bathroom mirror.
Intermittent Fasting is still the best and perhaps the easiest when it comes to diet and fasting. Here’s how I do it.
I eat during a window of 8 hours or less, usually from 12.30 in the afternoon till 8.30 at night. I have only water during the other hours of the day. (Harvard study suggests eating window of 7 am to 3pm for best results).
Why I said it’s easy! that’s because I eat my favourite sweets and food during the eating hours. There’s no sacrifice. If I eat well, say a ‘keto’ diet, I could have shed an additional 10 to 15 pounds.
Our food digest and gone in 12 hours. And if we don’t eat after 12 hours also, the energy requirement of the body could be by way of burning stored fat.
And when we exercise into and after 12 hours fasting, more fat could be burned.
I have increased the level of workout. This include suryanamaskar, yoga and some intense swimming. Most importantly, I have set an outrageous target for six packs.
It seems to be working. And if it’s good, I want my friends to get it too. We are talking about overall wellness which include better results in diabetes, blood pressure, heart health and prevention and control of scary things like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cancer.
Even better, there could be production of growth hormones, anti ageing phenomenon and autophagy (autophagy is a Nobel Prize subject and it’s a good idea to read about it) which talks about new cells, repair of damaged cells etc.
