Intermittent fasting, how to do it right
This is Dr. Berg talking about the power of intermittent fasting.
This is not a diet,
but a pattern of eating.
Why does it work?
Because it triggers Growth Hormones and inhibits insulin.
Therefore, the purpose of “IF” is to lower insulin; take the stress off insulin and the gland that makes it – the pancreas, and thus restore your metabolism.
In fact, this can heal a plateaued set-point.
If you have fat in your mid-section, then we know you have high insulin.
WHAT TO EAT:
Start with 3 meals per day, no snacking.
Then, do 3 meals per day but only eating your 3 meals in an 8 hour window, thus fasting for 16 hours.
Ultimately, you want to “fast” for 20 hours and eat within a 4 hour window – 2 meals per day.
If you add exercise, high intensity interval training, you can greatly enhance Growth Hormone even more.
