Why Intermittent Fasting is Necessary for Optimal Health
FASTer Way because it’s foundational strategy is intermittent fasting.
While intermittent fasting is becoming more and more popular, it still hasn’t become a mainstream nutritional practice. However, the research continues to build, and people’s results are beginning to scream it’s effectiveness.
During the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, my clients engage in a daily 16/8 fast protocol. This means that they fast for 16 hours each day (most of which are overnight while they are sleeping), and consume ALL of their daily calories during an 8 hour feeding window. While there are other fasting schedules that can be followed for similar results, this is the most doable for the busy women I work with!
What’s so great about fasting?
Fasting turns your body into a fat burner.
Daily periods of fasting changes your body at a cellular level. In addition, it helps to regulate hormones like insulin and HGH to make the fat stores in your body more accessible energy sources. The time given to your cells to repair during fasted periods, allows cells to remove waste and function optimally. Intermittent fasting allows time for the body to utilize fat as its main source of energy, which means you not only lose weight overall, but will see an improvement in your overall body composition. Intermittent fasting allows you to maintain muscle mass which speeds up your metabolic rate, while helping you shed fed.
Intermittent Fasting helps reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
A daily fast allows your insulin levels to remain regulated and stable. This means that your insulin levels are able to function optimally throughout the day. This means you are less likely to become insulin resistant, and less likely to become diabetic. Studies have shown that intermittent fasting reduces overall blood sugar levels by 3-6%1 .
Intermittent Fasting can prevent disease and boost the immune system.
While the fat loss benefits are enough to convince most people to try intermittent fasting, one of the other “side effects” of regular fasting is that it boosts your immune system. Intermittent fasting allows our body to remove waste from our cells. This means that it can break down the waste that can build up over time, which can lead to a decrease in susceptibility to both cancer and Alzheimer's.
There are several other benefits one might experience due to regular intermittent fasting: better sleep and more energy, greater mental clarity and the development of more neurons in the brain, along with better digestion and less inflammation. There truly is no downside to Intermittent Fasting and it has truly been a game changer for both myself and thousands of my clients.
The FASTer Way to Fat Loss has gotten so many women results largely due to the practice of Intermittent Fasting. Here’s what one client Amy had to say about her FASTer Way experience:
“I came into this program at the age of 51 with more than 60 pounds to lose to be at a healthy weight. Amanda encouraged me to go at my own pace with the exercises but to still push myself to my own limits. The change in eating habits was something I could do 100% and I did! The results were amazing. I lost 18 pounds in the six-week period, and I felt younger and more energetic than I have in a long time. Repetition is how we establish habits, and these are good habits I want to make a permanent part of my lifestyle.”
There are literally thousands of testimonials just like Amy’s. Regular, everyday women who have made drastic lifestyle changes to not only shed unwanted fat, but look and feel better than they’ve ever felt before.
