Fasting: Key Facts and Myths

There are many different weight loss plans available to the public, and intermittent fasting is mentioned in various meal plans and diet plans. This week, Mint Nutrition Clinic is focusing on this weight loss tool and its health benefits and implications. 

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is an effective tool for weight loss and appetite management. The most popular method of fasting is done once a month. This helps the appetite hormones stabilize, allowing the satiety hormones to become more active.

Also, intermittent fasting can potentially reduce insulin levels and help with weight loss results. This is because, when a fast is taking place, the body encourages the person to go out and hunt for food (therefore, increasing their growth hormone and energy levels). 

Additionally, fasting has been shown to reduce one's risk of developing obesity and diabetes. When done correctly, with the help of a nutritionist, this can be a great weight loss tool.
