The combination of Burn and Boost Zones will cause your body to gently and safely dip in and out of ketosis, which powerfully battles metabolic conditions including Alzheimer’s.
The Boost Zone being the 8 hour window that you eat each day and the Burn Zone being the 16 hours that you fast, or burn fat!
Dr. Andrew Weil said, “Inflammation is so powerfully destructive to the brain and body. It’s at the root of cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease, neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and cancer”.
To reduce inflammation, Weil recommends a diet that’s rich in vegetables, low amounts of animal protein, whole grains, less fruit, and olive oil as the main cooking oil. He added: “I also recommend anti- inflammatory spices such as ginger and turmeric, red wine and chocolate in moderation, and green tea.” This eating plan will provide you with more physical and mental energy than ever before. Your mind will regain clarity and focus. Plus, you’re going to feel more joyful, enthusiastic, confident, serene, and empowered. Oh, and you’ll reap the little ole bonus of living longer.
Scientific studies also show that caffeine defends against cognitive decline and reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and it increases insulin sensitivity in healthy humans, which is extremely important to sustained weight loss.
Luckily if you are on the Cruise Control diet, and you are intermittent fasting, you can still drink coffee and even coffee with MCT oil, coconut oil, or grass-fed butter to satiate your hunger. Crazy that this can also help to defend against cognitive decline, go Cruise Control coffee!
