Intermittent fasting- Introduction.
Recommended link: Intermittent fasting (Wikipedia)
Intermittent fasting is highly recommended for everyone, but especially for chronic patients.
- When the digestive system does not operate at a high load, the immune system can repair it.
- There is no need for a Zero calorie diet during fast days. The starvation diet causes a decrease in the entire metabolism, including mechanisms designed to protect the brain.
- Drinking hot soup with natural fat is especially recommended because the bowels require lubrication. Natural fat helps to replenish the bowel tissue.
- Intermittent fasting results in weight loss, but intermittent fasting benefits far beyond slimming.
The 16: 8 diet is a version of intermittent fasting aimed primarily at weight loss.
- The 16: 8 diet is based on 16-hour fasting and 8-hour feeding.
- There are no restrictions on the 8 hours you can eat, so the diet has become very popular, except it is not necessarily a healthy diet.
- The diet may be excellent for those who eat varied and non-industrial, and unprocessed foods during the daytime.
- Those who eat industrialized foods in bulk during those 8 hours will find that they may lose weight in the early stages, but after that, weight gain and various side effects may also occur.
What are the two types of intermittent fasting?
- The more familiar and easier method to follow is the 16:8 diet, only eaten during the daytime. (It is also essential to eat natural and unprocessed food.)
- The second method is fasting for several days intermittently. This method is more challenging to perform.
Fasting as a healing method has been known for thousands of years. In ancient cultures, people used to have dinner at sunset. In the modern age, people tend to eat late, including at night.
