How Does Intermittent Fasting Help with Diabetes?

Share this:

The problem we have today– an epidemic of obesity, metabolic disease, and diabetes–  is that we are eating too much, too often, and the foods we are choosing are spiking insulin. This is what makes you fat. By fasting, you are reducing insulin resistance, which can help to treat type 2 diabetes.

Following intermittent fasting, it will allow your body to gently and safely dip in and out of ketosis, which powerfully battles metabolic conditions such as diabetes.

As always, consult your doctor before making any final decisions.

The problem we have today– an epidemic of obesity, metabolic disease, and diabetes–  is that we are eating too much, too often, and the foods we are choosing are spiking insulin. This is what makes you fat. By fasting, you are reducing insulin resistance, which can help to treat type 2 diabetes.

Following intermittent fasting, it will allow your body to gently and safely dip in and out of ketosis, which powerfully battles metabolic conditions such as diabetes.

As Dr. Jason Fung, author of The Complete Guide to Fasting, explains, type 2 diabetes is “an entirely reversible disease with weight loss. The essence of the disease is really that there is too much sugar in the body. All you need to do is eliminate the sugar in your body.” That’s what intermittent fasting does.

As always, consult your doctor before making any final decisions.

How Intermittent Fasting Helps with Depression

Share this:

Abbey Sharp, RD, said that intermittent fasting showed an increase of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in monkeys and rodents. A review in Psychiatry Investigation found that decreased levels of BDNF can lead to a major depressive disorder.

Intermittent fasting also can reduce levels of oxidative stress and inflammation. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the product of free radicals and the ability of the body to detoxify their harmful effects. Both of these can lead to depression.

How Intermittent Fasting Helps with Chronic Fatigue

Share this:

Chronic fatigue is an illness where the fatigue lasts for more than six months. Some of the symptoms include: muscle pain, loss of memory, headaches, chills, night sweats, to name a few.

We know very little about what causes it, but luckily intermittent fasting can help to reduce the effects.

Intermittent fasting can help to reduce the symptoms of chronic fatigue. If you have chronic fatigue, chances are your mitochondria are not functioning at optimal levels. Your mitochondria actually work better when they are calorie restricted, they become more efficient, so this can result in helping with chronic fatigue.

My advice is to start slowly, and always consult a doctor first.

How Intermittent Fasting Helps with Anxiety

Share this:

It is said that fasting results in the release of endorphins, the hormones that are responsible for happiness.

If you intermittent fast and are less worried about how many calories you’re eating in a day, what time you have to wake up to get your breakfast in, and other things that have you anxious surrounding food.

When you intermittent fast you are likely to experience more focus. A clearer head can lead to a greater understanding of situations that you are in, things you have to get done at work, etc. all things that can reduce anxiety when you are well-prepared for anything the day has coming your way.
