The Only System you Should Do

I've always been an overweight person growing up and have struggled with weight loss. I've tried a lot of diets over the years and I think I can say I've been following one diet or another for almost my entire life and stopping it. I've had mixed results from those diets. Some helped me lose weight, others were just cheap marketing tricks. 

And frankly, some diets were tormenting my body and mind.

But there were a lot of times when I would get comments like “Your face looks dull” after my diet or “Your eyes seem to have sunk into yours”. And as I understand now, this was due to the severely deficient diets that I followed. 

But this diet, if I can call it that, has proven to be the holy grail of my diet.

Which diet can I "stick to"?

Almost all diets I've encountered are restrictive. Eat fewer carbohydrates, processed foods, fewer dairy products, etc. They advise you not to eat a certain type of food based on their nutritional importance to your body, their requirements, and the impact of the deficiency of these foods on your internal system. Then comes this guy who wanted to eat everything and still lose weight (no, it wasn't me).

 Someone decided, somewhere around the world "Hey, let's try to restrict when we eat and see how it goes."


Healthy Diet Tips

Although intermittent fasting is a restrictive diet, it is more of a time-restricting diet than food. Intermittent fasting tells you to eat for certain hours in the day and to fast the other hours. The longer you fast, the better for your body.

Now, this does not mean that you will go without food for days in the hope of losing 10 kg in a week. This diet provides different versions of fast-eating periods that people can follow and they are all time-dependent.

The most common form of intermittent fasting (IF) is the 8:16 diet. This means that you eat 8 hours a day and fast for the remaining 16 hours. Other variations one can follow are 6:18, 4:20, or even 5:2 (eating regularly 5 days a week and fasting the other two days).

What is fasting?

Before moving on to what happens to your body when you fast, let's define what fasting means.

The main goal of fasting is to lower our blood sugar level-so that reduced energy sources cause the body to get energy from stored fat. As most people understand, fasting is not a period when you don't eat any food.

 Fasting begins when the level of glucose in the blood drops after eating and preparing food.

Federal State: This is the period a few hours after your meal (approximately 0-3 hours). During this period, blood sugar levels rise and higher amounts of insulin are secreted to transport this sugar into the cells as an energy source.

Early fasting phase: During this period, the body begins to use glycogen from the liver to convert it into glucose. Glycogen is the primary storage form of glucose in the body.

Fasting phase: This phase begins when the glycogen reserve from the liver is depleted and the body enters a phase called "gluconeogenesis" where the body generates an alternative source of glucose mainly from body fat.

These periods are not fixed and should not be taken by the watch. What you eat as your meal, the body's metabolism, the amount and action of hormones and many other factors determine how quickly you consume sugar and when your body transitions to the fasting phase.

What happens when you fast?

Now that we have an idea of ​​when our bodies should fast, let me tell you what happens when you are in the fasting period of your day.

8 to 12 Hours since the last meal: after

Approximately 8 hours have passed since the last meal, my stored glucose stores had been exhausted. This is the time when your body goes into glucose formation which indicates a fasting mode. As mentioned earlier, gluconeogenesis is the period when your body begins to produce glucose from stored body fat, and during this period, the amount of calories the body burns also increases.

12-18 Hours since the last meal:

About 14-16 hours, your body will reach 'ketosis'. The liver will convert fats into ketones to fuel the brain, heart, and muscles. Ketones are known to suppress appetite which results in less hunger on your part.

During ketosis, there is no external source of energy entering the body and your body works only on the energy generated by breaking down fat cells. During this period fat burning begins and your body enters "fat-burning mode".



18-24 Hours since last meal:

Your body is in full fat-burning mode at this point and the energy supply from the fat has increased by 60%. It creates a stressful environment for your body and ketones produce signals for your body to better manage its metabolism to keep it in such an environment.

24-48 Hours since last meal:

Your body is now completely empty. Stored fat is the only source of glucose that your cells get. This happens when your body goes into a "phase of autophagy" called autophagy. Cells want to make the best use of the glucose they get, and thus begin to clean up their environment. They begin to remove unwanted components by using them, along with some viruses and bacteria, as energy sources.

 This basically recycles your cell and gives a thorough cleaning of your body at the cellular level.

Autophagy is known mainly due to clock reversal effects. The body cleans cells, removes unwanted components, and uses the energy generated to build and create younger, healthy cells.


48-56 Hours since last meal:

According to one study, within about 48 hours, growth hormone production increases by 400%. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) production increases muscle mass, stimulates faster muscle repair, and speeds up the internal and external healing process.

Want to know how effective HGH is? It is forbidden to take it abroad in many professional sports due to its healing properties. And therefore…..

72 Hours since last meal:

Studies have shown that 72 hours of fasting leads to the complete regeneration of the immune system. Fasting leads to the production of new stem cells to be used as immune cells to replace the old ones.

How long should I fast?

You may have heard that everyone's body is different, and therefore, the way they react to any form of diet is different. After reading this article, it may have motivated you to fast for 72 hours or more to fully rejuvenate your immune system. I don't recommend going over your fasting methods for more hours than your body can take.

I would suggest listening to your body. I started with the easiest form of this diet, the 16:8 period, and it worked. There have been times since I started derailing with this period. Due to some social event, or just depending on my mood, I sometimes fast for 6 hours and up to 18-20 hours. But it all depended on what my body was telling me.

 I never went out of my way to make sure I finished my 16 hour period before eating even if my body was begging for food and my stomach was growling for hours.


 What is the ideal diet for long-term health?

I've been fasting 16:8 intermittently for the past 1.5 years and now only switched to the 18:6 period because I felt comfortable with it. I would advise everyone who wants to start IF to start with the simplest one, 16:8, and see how your bodies react to it. If you feel like going without food for 16 hours is too much for you, start with 12, then slowly move to 14 and then 16 hours.

 It is very important in any form of diet to stay safe and not overdo it.

(Note: If you have any medical condition, or are on certain medications, I highly advise consulting your doctor before following any type of diet. I am not a medical practitioner and only share what I have learned through my research and what I have personally found beneficial in my life and living with people close to me.)

I'd like to share my experience with IF, how I follow it and how it has affected the lives of the people around me, but this article has been going on for a really long time and I think that's a story for another time.
