Supercharge Your Intermittent Fast with Amla
We love intermittent fasting. The benefits to insulin sensitivity, hormone balance, and overall health are incredible.
But, for some, it can seem like the benefits of an intermittent fasting can disappear soon after they start eating again.
We’ll explain what intermittent fasting is, and how you can enhance the benefits of it by using Alma Green.
What is intermittent fasting?
Intermittent fasting is a self-induced period of “negative calorie balance” for the body. Negative calorie balance is just a fancy way of saying your body is burning more calories than you are consuming.
Now here’s where things get interesting. In today’s world, humans don’t often enter into periods of starvation in developed countries. However, our ancestors evolved sophisticated biological machinery to tolerate extended periods of negative calorie balance.
The benefits of turning this biochemical machinery ON are wide ranging. Studies show that periods of negative calorie balance result in weight loss, improved immune function, reduced inflammation, and can be a useful tool in the quest to achieve metabolic health.
How do you intermittent fast?
The most commonly used intermittent fasting regiments are:
- The 16-8 Intermittent Fast: Eat for 8 hours, then fast for 16 hours. Repeat this cycle daily.
- The 1 day a Week Fast: Fast for 24 hours one day out of a week. Repeat this on the same day every day.
