THE PROS & CONS OF INTERMITTENT FASTING ❌ ✅
IF seems to be THE trend nowadays !
I get so many question about it so here we are !
Most of you see intermittent as the solution for weight loss, but it's more something you should do for you productivity, health or longevity...
It's simply means going without food for extended periods of time by reducing your feeding window (but still eating the same amount of calories)
✅ THE PROS :
• Intermittent fasting may aid weight loss : this is not true, as I said before, It only depends overall calories & type of food your eating, no matter when and how you eat them • May increase human growth hormone
• Decreases insulin levels : as you extend the period without food, you don't have those insulin spikes (which can disrupt our natural growth hormone production) However, in order to do that, you don't have to go with such a long period of fasting ! An easy way to manage insulin levels including eating a diet rich in fiber, with a balance of the 3 macros + resistance training.
