Science shows that modified fasting — fasts in which calories are restricted but required nutrition is supplied, like the Almased 14-day fast — can flip the body’s natural metabolic switch from burning sugar to burning fat, which also preserves muscle mass.
In addition, safe fasting improves the balance of several important hormones. Healthy fasting keeps insulin levels in check and boosts levels of norepinephrine — which mobilizes more fat for the body to burn.
Better yet, modified fasting lowers levels of the appetite hormone, ghrelin, and increases leptin, the hunger-blocking satiety hormone.
Plus it can also increase overall metabolism by up to 14 percent.
In fact, while many of us want to boost metabolism and burn fat most of us don’t want to have to make complicated changes in our diet or lifestyle.
Well, that’s why we put together our tips for better and faster fat-burning:
1. Follow a high-protein diet — including Almased!
The problem with most diets is that they are only that — diets, pure and simple, just a reduction in calories, without any long-lasting effects on satiety (feeling full) or hunger.
Plugging more high-quality protein into our diet reduces appetite, improves satiety, increases fat burning, helps with weight loss and preserves muscle mass.
