WHAT IS IT:
Strictly eating inside certain windows of time and not eating anything at all during the fasting window. The most common method is eating for 8 hours and fasting for 16 hours but can range.
HOW IT WORKS:
Eliminating calorie intake for a period of time causes your body to dramatically deplete its glycogen stores, directing the body towards using fat as its primary source of energy.
Reduction in intramuscular fat stores/ fat loss
Increased insulin sensitivity, promoting a more anabolic state
Boosted HGH production, increasing protein synthesis and fat loss
Improved focus and mental clarity
Decreased chance of chronic disease
