Intermittent fasting is based on the primordial human’s way of life, a time when food was not available all day, all the time. Not until modern times we have become habituated to eating three to five times a day and to never be hungry. But the body needs a break from digesting to be able to regenerate. Our way of life of eating all the time has a negative impact on our health and can lead to obesity and food-related illnesses such as diabetes.
With intermittent fasting, you stop eating for predetermined periods of time – you leave out a meal – or you fast up to 24 hours. Your body fasts in a natural way, gets into detox mode and learns to burn fat again and to not rely on constant food supply. This has also positive effects on your blood sugar.
