The Intermittent Fasting

By_Laser Origin,

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting is a method of eating that consists of alternating a period of food intake and a period of fasting. To simplify, intermittent fasting is a half fast! Generally, the fasting period is about 16 hours. The last meal of the food period is taken before 8 p.m. so that the fast is done at night and the first meal of the day is that of the next day at noon. The 3 meals are then lunch at 12 p.m., snack around 4 p.m. and dinner before 8 p.m. It is possible to move the hours of dinner and lunch, but it is important to keep these 16 hours of fasting for this to be effective.

Where is it from?

The word breakfast means break the fast, stop fasting. It is supposed to be at lunch and not at breakfast that we break our fast overnight. This practice is inspired by our ancestors who did not have a fridge. They had to wake up in the morning to go hunting in order to eat much later, at noon.

What is it used for?

ntermittent fasting is used to detoxify and purify the body. Many studies have led to incredible results in losing weight, improving or curing certain chronic diseases like diabetes or cholesterol and cleaning the whole body. The longer the fast, the more effective it will be, but intermittent fasting is a good way to start if you want to continue to a full fast. Fasting simply allows the body to clean itself, both indoors and outdoors, because thanks to detoxification, the skin will be smoother, radiant and pure. A bad nutrition is generally felt by weight gain and not optimal health, but also imperfect, grayish skin that reflects the inside of your body.

The body is digested all day long, from breakfast to dinner. However, when the body is in digestion, it is too busy to take care of the rest of our body to heal itself and make the nervous system work properly. This is why we are always tired after the midday meal.
