Studies indicate that intermittent fasting…
- Improves your cholesterol and blood glucose levels
- Moves you closer to a body mass index of 25 or less, reducing your risk of high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, colon and breast cancer, osteoarthritis, and respiratory problems
- Improves IGF-1 – a hormone that prevents cell death and slows the aging process – reducing the risk of a number of age-related diseases
- Switches on millions of repair genes in response to the minor physiological stress of fasting
- Gives your pancreas a rest, boosting the effectiveness of the insulin it produces
- Promotes an enhanced sense of well-being – many fasters report a “glow,” perhaps the result of something going on at a metabolic level that governs our moods.
