Intermittent Fasting

Updated: Jan 3, 2021

It is said that 65% of success in being healthy lies in the Intermitten Fasting. What is it and what does it eat with? Intermittent Fasting is a pattern that is supposed to be used every day. It consists of two phases, called window. The most popular and recommended for the beginning is the 18/6 window. In one window we do not eat anything for 18 hours. In the second window we eat for 6 hours, preferably three meals at most. We should aim to eat a maximum of 1-2 meals a day. Scientists say that it is best to eat one meal a day, around 16:00. However, this requires time, first of all to adapt the body both physically and mentally.

In time, we will notice that we do not need to eat as much as before, because absorption will improve. The body will have more time and energy for other more important things. The body will repair itself. We just need to create the right conditions for it.

But let us ask ourselves why should I do all of this? What good will non-eating do to me, or if someone prefers, eating so rarely? Everything is played out between insulin and Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Insulin is produced by the pancreas every time the blood sugar level starts to rise, and this happens every time we eat something (also when we drink juice). Insulin selects sugar and vitamins from the blood and transports them to the cells to nourish them and give energy. It is very important and there is nothing to underestimate. However, it is not desirable for high levels of insulin to last too long. As insulin levels rise, HGH levels fall. HGH is very important and is involved in many processes, including repair and regeneration in our bodies. Too high level of insulin in the blood means that everything that insulin brings must be stored somewhere. When a cell is full, it closes itself to insulin and simply does not take it again. First stocks are deposited in the liver. When there is not enough room here, the stocks are stored in the fat. In the insulin case, the insulin is first placed in the fat around abdomen. When the poor pancreas continues to produce insulin, sooner or later it will be exhausted and will work at an absolute minimum. This is the moment when we are already dealing with diabetes and the necessary insulin injections. When we apply Intermittent Fasting, the time of non-eating is crucial here. We do not eat - insulin drops, HGH increases. The fat in which the toxins were accumulated is burnt. So the toxins are released from the stock and removed from the body (assuming that the kidneys function well). The HGH additionally increases faster during the training or any exercises (during the non-eating window) and then the muscle tissue builds up faster. It takes time for the body to get used to it, but everything can be done. It took me a year to get to the point where I am now. I exercise in the morning, usually around 6 o'clock. I don't eat my first meal until 12-14, depending on the day. This gives me a lot of time when the HGH, which is strengthened by exercise, works wonders in my body. The last meal I eat between 16-18. Sometimes I have an eating window of 4 hours sometimes 6. I remain flexible, I do not want to get fixated and limit myself so that later on I do not have any remorse or resentment. So I recommend it to everyone and every age!
