Health Benefits From Intermittent Fasting

More evidence is pouring in that intermittent fasting can provide significant health benefits for your cardiovascular system, as well as cellular regeneration and metabolic and disease markers, Diabetes in Control reports. Decreased BMI, glucose levels, triglycerides, cholesterol and C-reactive proteins also are reported.

Over the years, many theories have been advanced about how much you should eat and when you should eat it to achieve optimal health. In recent years, intermittent fasting has been promoted as a means of preventing your risk of chronic disease, as well as a potential avenue for adding years to your life. One of the most effective interventions for normalizing your weight, intermittent fasting involves reducing your food intake in whole or in part, a few days a week, every other day or daily.

This is not a starvation diet. Rather, the type of intermittent fasting I recommend and personally use involves restricting your daily eating schedule to a specific window of time. Based on the experimenting I have done in recent years, I suggest a six- to eight-hour timeframe in which to consume your daily food intake.

Coupling the fasting with good food choices is still important, including cutting net carbs (total carbs minus fiber), reducing your sugar consumption and aiming for a diet high in healthy fats, obtaining 50 to 85 percent of your daily calories in the form of avocados, coconut oil, organic grass-fed butter, pastured egg yolks and raw nuts such as macadamia, pecans and pine nuts.

Add in moderate amounts of high-quality protein from organically raised, grass-fed or pastured animals, totaling no more than 40 to 80 grams of protein per day, based on the protein limits I have suggested previously, and you’re on your way to a healthier life.
