While this is the preferred method of losing weight at times, the benefits of intermittent fasting are far greater. Its principle of operation is to allow our body to complete the process of digestion by fasting at regular intervals and focus on the process of self-healing and regeneration. There are many tried and tested variations of these processes. But the most popular is the 16-8 range. For example, we get up in the morning, the first time we eat at 10:00. We can implement the 16-8 practice by adding 8 hours to it, cutting out all meals at 6:00 pm, and setting the meal window to open again at 10:00 am the next day. This interval may vary depending on what time suits us, but the meal window should be closed at least 5 hours before bedtime. Another important issue is to ensure that our intermittent fasting is as close as possible to the circadian rhythm that we talked about recently, that is, to progress in accordance with sunrise and sunset. That is, close the food window with the end of daylight hours.
So how does intermittent fasting work? Once the digestion process is complete, the body starts autophagy (that is, it literally eats itself) as an energy source. Here, it first eats damaged and damaged cells. Thus, it is cleared of damaged structures until the next day. In this process, what we eat also helps regenerate during the night. Foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits, good oils, clean foods without additives, healthy spices, plenty of water to help our body during meals, facilitate the process of digestion and provide our body with many supporters that it can use at this time. . cleansing.
