Many people have been trying an intermittent fasting plan in an effort to lose weight. It requires skipping meals for a certain time of the day to burn fats and having a controlled consumption to generate energy and avoid sudden weight gain.
Intermittent fasting offers a number of health benefits aside from helping people shed fats. This diet approach supports cellular repair, slows down aging, promotes heart health and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.
When people fast, the process called autophagy occurs in the body, which tells the cells to get rid of built-up waste. Gut bacteria also becomes active and produce the protein known as fasting-induced adipose factor (FIAF) that triggers fat burning process, according to Bulletproof.
