Intermittent Fasting – Schedule & Benefits

Once touted as a wellness fad, intermittent fasting has proven to be a new way of life for many people looking to lose weight, manage their insulin levels and ward off disease. In fact, fasting actually dates back centuries, as our ancestors ate according to the suns patterns, abstaining from food once it turned dark. In modern times, fasting has gained popularity because of it’s ability to deliver quick results and allow consumers to not restrict what they eat, but when. There are also a variety of intermittent fasting schedules out there, giving consumers the ability to adjust their fasting timeline to fit their lifestyle.
So what actually happens to your body when you fast? During the first 6-8 hours your body is finishing digesting food, using glucose stored in the liver and muscles. After 8 hours your body slips into fasting mode, healing itself at a cellular and molecular level. Your cells will begin to regenerate, and as you begin to run out of stored glucose, your body will begin to burn off fat for energy. This repair process continues throughout your fasting timeline, meaning that those who fast for longer periods of time will see results quicker.
To get started on your fasting journey, the team at Snap Kitchen broke down the five most popular fasting timelines so you can decide which schedule is right for you. For example, did you know that the 16:8 fasting schedule is best suited for beginners who still want to see results quickly? Or that the 24 hour and 72 hour fasts have amazing health benefits, but should only be conducted under doctor supervision? Check out the infographic below to learn everything you need to know about intermittent fasting and how to eat your way to a healthier body.
