Brap Brap it’s Wednesday.
How have you all been? Good? Good.
So I’m trying out this new eating habit where you get an 8-10 hour window to eat food in a day. For example, if I have my first bite of food at 10am, then I have until 6pm to stuff my face. After that I have to wait until 10am the next day.
Intermittent fasting is supposed to bring a whole barrage of good health stuff:
-Improved Brain Function, Resistance to disease, Resistance to ageing, Improved blood pressure, Increased insulin sensitivity. The list goes on…
So, when the body hasn’t consumed any form of nutrition for 8-12 hours, the body is considered to be fasting. Somewhere around this time your body uses up all of your stored energy, but you can’t eat for another 5 hours?! To cope with this the body begins to break down your fat reserves and enters this sort of “battery saving / healing mode”.
I get pretty aggy when I’m hungry so avoid me after 6-7pm!
Anyways, I gotta head to Jiujitsu.
