What Happens to Your Body While You Fasting - Anaducha.com


Are you wondering what would happen to your body if you were to start fasting because if you are you should know that fasting will provide benefits that extend far further than just burning fat and making your diet more sustainable and enjoyable when your body goes without food for a certain period of time you'll experience changes that affect your brain your digestive system immune system

hormones and even the function of all the microscopic cells found within your body when you first begin fasting a few things happen at the cellular level that may cause hunger and fatigue especially if you're a beginner this is because your body will normally get its energy from glucose or carbohydrates so depending on how much sugar you have in your blood and how much glycogen or carbohydrates you have stored in your muscles and your liver it can take anywhere from 8 to 48 hours without food for your body to switch from mostly using glucose or carbs for energy to breaking

down fat and using ketone bodies for energy in a process known as gluconeogenesis now to most people the concept of going anywhere from 16 hours up to a few days without food may sound incredibly foolish and unhealthy but the exact opposite is actually true and it hasn't always been so mainstream to eat at least 3 times a day every day and this is supported by research on modern hunter and gatherers that shows that they go between intermittent periods of feeding and fasting depending on the availability of food for example modern Bushmen living in Africa go through frequent periods

of food deprivation ranging from 1 to 10 days when they can't catch any game or when they have seasonal droughts or especially when animals migrate the truth is that most healthy adults have evolved to be perfectly capable of fasting and the good news is that you don't have to fast for 10 days to experience the benefits for your body just 16 hours will provide some really unique beneficial effects and when going through your first 16 hours without food the first thing you should expect is to start feeling really hungry right around your regular mealtimes that you're skipping this is because of

a hunger hormone in your body known as growlin which stimulates your appetite when it's released and studies show that ghrelin levels will spike up at the times of the day that you normally do eat which for most people is breakfast lunch and dinner this will happen to your body automatically if you give in and you eat before you're fast is over the same thing will happen again the next day on the other hand if you just ride out that hungry feeling within about two hours after the initial spike and growling it should drop back down to normal levels and your appetite should drop and as your body

adapts more and more to skipping a meal like breakfast or multiple meals throughout the day you'll feel less of those automatic cravings to eat during those key times of the day that you normally find yourself getting hungry if you allow yourself to adapt to consistently fasting for just 16 hours a day while eating a healthy diet during the other eight hours your body will start to become much more sensitive to insulin having higher insulin sensitivity will not only help enhance fat loss it'll also help you feel much better when your body doesn't have carbs available for energy and it will help reduce the risk of a number of serious diseases like diabetes high blood pressure heart disease and even

thyroid conditions now during each of your 16 hour fast about six hours into the fast your body will begin going through another incredible process known as oto Fuji this is a process where your body begins destroying old or damaged parts of your cells when you're always eating your body doesn't get a chance to do this because it's constantly rebuilding rather than breaking down and breaking down unnecessary and dysfunctional components of your cells allows them to be recycled so they can perform optimally this helps reduce inflammation throughout the body which helps fight a number of diseases the benefits of etaf adji will also extend to your skin cells potentially slowing down wrinkles

age spots and acne your immune system will also improve thanks to auto fuji your body will repair and produce brand new white blood cells which will be stronger at fighting diseases but on top of that it may even help your body slow down the aging process and extend our lives now this is something that still requires more research but there have been some very interesting studies on animals that support this theory for example rats were divided into two groups at Birth and one of them was fed every day while the other group was fed every other day which is also known as an alternate day fast not only did the rats in the fasting group age much slower but they also lived 83% longer than the that

were fed daily and there are other animal studies that support these results and show that fasting can help with longevity even when calories aren't controlled or restricted now as your body cleanses and repairs itself with Auto Fiji there will also be a rise in the rates of neurogenesis in the brain neurogenesis is the growth and the development of new brain cells and nerve tissues and higher rates of neurogenesis have been linked to increase brain performance and improve memory mood and focus and according to the head of the neuroscience lab at the National Institute on Aging fasting only twice a week could significantly lower the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's

and it can help you develop protective measures against damage from a stroke this is because the shock of fasting stresses the brain in a good way just like stressing your muscles when you work out this stress leads your brain to create new cells the stress from both exercising and fasting increases the production of protein in the brain which promotes the growth of neurons allowing them to send signals and communicate better with each other this may explain why many people feel a lot more focused and productive while fasting and it also makes a lot of sense from an evolutionary survival perspective since we would want the brain to work optimally whenever food wasn't available because that would help us with the problem-solving process that's required to actually find some food and

survive now one of the most important of the proteins that gets boosted from fasting is called BDNF and BDNF has been referred to as Miracle Grow for your brain it makes your brain more resilient to stress and more adaptable to change helping with the production of new brain cells and protecting your current brain cells while improving memory and learning having enough BDNF is very important as we age because low levels of BDNF are linked to dementia alzheimer's memory loss and other brain processing problems but the good news is that studies show that intermittent fasting anywhere from 16 to 18 hours has been shown to boost BDNF levels by 50 to 100% and fasting for up to 36 hours has been shown to boost it by up to 400% now if you were too fast for longer lengths

like 36 48 and 72 hours your body will continue going through further changes most people assume that this is when your we'll start to use protein for energy by breaking down muscle tissue however this is definitely not the case since research shows that your body's protein breakdown rates will drop significantly within just the first day of fasting and it drops further as you fast for longer one starvation study showed that during the first three days of fasting protein breakdown rates dropped to only 75 grams per day for an adult man weighing 150 pounds which is less than half a gram of protein per pound of body weight but what's even more surprising is that after three to four days of not eating protein breakdown drops to a tiny 20 grams per day so the truth is that most prolonged fast

lasting two to three days shouldn't cause much muscle loss the body's ability to conserve muscle while fasting for longer lengths can be explained by another major change that will happen to your hormones while fasting you'll have a huge spike in your human growth hormone levels the change in human growth hormone won't really help you build more muscle since you'll still have a negative protein turnover rate but it will help prevent muscle loss while fasting in one prolonged fasting study growth hormone levels increased by over 1,200 percent at its peak just keep in mind this only applies to prolonged fasting and most of you will only be fasting for up to 16 hours a day so your body won't really hit that point where it's super conservative with protein nor will you have that significant of an

effect on your growth hormone levels the other thing that won't happen is your body won't destroy its metabolism this is another very common assumption that people have about fasting especially if you're going without food for longer than 24 hours but this is a total myth first of all if your metabolism does slow down from consuming fewer calories while fasting it won't slow down any more than it would if you were to cut away the same amount of calories with the traditional calorie restricted diet second there are a few studies out there that show the exact opposite that fasting can actually help improve your metabolism by increasing levels of a neurotransmitter known as norepinephrine but like I said most research shows that fasting and regular calorie restriction both

have a very similar effect on metabolic slow down when calorie deficits are equally matched now even though your metabolism won't slow down anymore than normal your digestive system definitely will since you won't be eating any food your stomach will finally get a break most people don't realize just how much energy is required to simply digest food you eat throughout the day but that's exactly why you feel tired after eating a lot of food in one sitting and that's why some people feel like they have more energy when they work out in a fasted state instead of working out right after eating a big meal but other than saving some energy on digestion shorter fasts that are 16 hours in length won't require you to take certain steps just so you can break your fast in a way that you can avoid an

upset stomach while many people obsess about how to break their fast it's really unnecessary since most people are only fasting for 16 hour lengths it's only with longer prolonged fast usually lasting 3 days or more that you may want to break your fast in a certain way to help your digestive system ease back into breaking down food if you are doing a prolonged fast then starting by reintroducing easy to digest liquids like bone broth and vegetable juice can help your stomach after that you could start reintroducing vegetables fruits and lean sources of protein at that point as long as your stomach is fine you could start eating normally there's no need to make this process crazy complicated now one last potentially miraculous effect that fasting may have on your body but this does require much

further research guys is that it may prevent the formation and the spread of cancer like I said much more research on this is needed but there are a couple interesting initial studies one of them was a test-tube study and it showed that exposing cancer cells to several cycles of fasting delayed the formation of tumors in the same way chemotherapy did and it increased the effectiveness of chemotherapy drugs on the development of the cancer also a separate study on rats following an alternate day fasting help block tumor formation human beings are not rats and they're obviously not test tubes and unfortunately it'll probably be a long time before we have solid randomized control trials on the positive effects that fasting may have on cancer in human beings that about wraps it up
