Intermittent Fasting Program! | Anti-Aging, Look Younger


OK, who wants to live a longer, happier, healthier
life with tons of energy and vitality? Who wants to be active and energetic well
into their 80s and late 90s? Who wants to reverse and prevent signs of
aging? These are the proven methods that not only
reverse and slow down the aging process, but also protect and restore healthy brain and
immune function, growth hormone production, fat loss, lean muscle mass, and insulin sensitivity. Not only that, but this proven method significantly
lowers your risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, blood pressure, inflammation, and
cancer…anyone interested? I thought so! This is exactly what intermittent fasting
does. Fasting has been scientifically proven to
slow down the aging process, reduce age-related chronic diseases, and extend lifespan. Scientists have figured out that the cells
in our bodies react to intermittent fasting in the same fashion as they do to exercise. So fasting, like exercise, is a stressor to
our system. When we place our bodies under a healthy type
of stress, regardless of if it is in the form of exercise or fasting, we create changes
at the cellular level that enable us to extend our life span. In the journal Aging Research Reviews, it
states that intermittent fasting increases lifespan and protects the various tissues
against disease. When our bodies are placed under a healthy
form of stress like intermittent fasting, we enable our bodies to become stronger and
respond to negative stressors in a more productive manner. Exercise does the same thing. When we expose ourselves to the stress exercise
provides, we are able to withstand more physical stress as a result. We build up tolerance to lower intensities
of exercise, and are able to tolerate ever-increasing workloads as a result. To really understand the potential that intermittent
fasting has for increasing our life span, we have to look at the physiological effects
of transitioning our bodies from burning carbohydrates as fuel, to burning fat as our primary fuel. Fat is a cleaner form of energy than carbohydrates
and improves insulin sensitivity. Burning fat also generates far less free radicals. Glucose is known as a more dirty type of fuel
because it produces a lot more free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for cellular
and DNA damage and are linked to increased potential for illness and disease. Although adding a lot of anti-oxidant foods
into your diet to help combat free radicals is good, the best thing to do is to reduce
them in the first place. This happens when your body starts burning
a clean fuel like fat instead of the dirty fuel consisting of an abundance of carbs. In addition, when your caloric intake is greater
than necessary, or when you consume food at times when you’re not physically active, this
also increases the number of free radicals produced. This is especially true when you eat immediately
before you go to bed. You are building up fuel when it is not needed! This is why I recommend not eating at least
a couple hours before bedtime. Your body uses the least amount of calories
when sleeping, so the last thing you want to do is consume excess amounts of calories
right before bedtime. This will generate an abundance of free radicals
that can damage your tissues, accelerate aging, and contribute to chronic disease. The bottom line is that intermittent fasting
has very promising evidence that shows its anti-aging and longevity properties. It improves your immune system, and reduces
the inflammation process and the free radicals in your body. It slows down the aging process significantly,
especially when you add in a large amount of healthy fats. Going without food now and then will not kill
you…In fact, it’s one of the keys to living a longer and healthier life!
