The Body Benefits 



The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting 

 Fat Loss is Great, but it's not the only reason to try Intermittent Fasting.

1. Intermittent Fasting makes your day Simpler. 

As Human Beings, most of Us want things to be as simple and stress free as possible. Intermittent fasting provides additional simplicity that makes it even easier to go about your day and enjoy life. When you wake up, you don't even have to worry about breakfast. You can just grab a cup of water and be on your way out the door.

Most of us probably enjoy eating in some form or fashion. However another benefit of Intermittent Fasting is that you eat one less meal a day. Therefore you are planning for one less meal, cooking or ordering one less meal, and basically stressing about one less meal. 

Life becomes a bit more simple. You save money.  And We like that. 



2. Intermittent Fasting helps you Live Longer. 

Scientists have long believed that restricting calories helps to lengthen your life.  Scientifically speaking, when your body is starving, it goes into preservation mode in order to find ways to extend your life.

The problem is....who wants to starve themselves to live longer? 

Enjoying a long life is the Ultimate Goal. Starving through life just doesn't fit the bill.


The good news for Us is that Intermittent Fasting activates many of the same mechanisms for extending life as calorie restriction. So you get the same benefits of a longer life without the the torture of starving.

There was a study in 1945 that discovered that Intermittent Fasting extended the life of mice. (Here is the study)

And more recently, this study  found that alternate day Intermittent Fasting led to longer lifespans.


3. Intermittent Fasting may Reduce the Risk of Cancer. 

This has been a hotly debated topic because there has yet to be a lot of research done in regards to the relationship between cancer and fasting.  Early reports, however, look promising.

This study of 10 cancer patients suggests that the side effects of chemotherapy may be diminished by fasting before treatment. This finding is supported by another study which used alternate day fasting with cancer patients and concluded that fasting before chemotherapy would result in better cure rates and fewer deaths.

Finally this comprehensive analysis  of many studies on fasting and disease has concluded that fasting appears to not only reduce the risk of cancer, but also cardiovascular disease.


4. Intermittent Fasting is much Easier than Dieting. 

The reason most diets fail isn't because we are eating the wrong foods. It's because we don't stick to the diet over the long term. It's not a nutrition problem. It's a behavior change problem.

This is where Intermittent Fasting shines because its so easy to implement once you get over the idea that you need to eat all the time!

This study found that intermittent fasting was an effective strategy for weight loss in obese adults and concluded that "subjects quickly adapt" to an intermittent fasting routine.

Dr. Michael Eades states  “Diets are easy in the contemplation, difficult in the execution. Intermittent fasting is just the opposite — it’s difficult in the contemplation but easy in the execution."

The ease of implementing Intermittent Fasting is the best reason to give it a try. It provides a wide range of health benefits without requiring a massive lifestyle change.
