The word “fasting,” for some, conjures up images of gaunt yogis enduring difficult purification rituals or of pale, anemic people struggling with some sort of desperation diet.
However, fasting should never mean starving. Fasting, the right way, helps our metabolism burn more fat while retaining muscle mass.
Science, in fact, shows that modified fasting — fasts in which calories are restricted but required nutrition is supplied — can flip the body’s built-in metabolic switch from preferentially 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.
Not only that, it can also increase overall metabolism by up to 14 percent.
According to Harvard University, “There is some good scientific evidence suggesting that […] fasting, when combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle, can be a particularly effective approach to weight loss, especially for people at risk for diabetes.”
