Lose 20lbs and maintain it with Intermittent Fasting

IMG_0947[1] We have been experiencing an incredible success helping patients lose weight with our ChiroThin Weight Loss Program, The average weight loss is 20 lbs in 6 weeks. But for me is more important to help each one of them either losing more weight or maintaining the new weight using lifestyle strategists. One of my favorite strategist is Intermittent Fasting.  Short-term fasting leads to various changes in the body that make fat burning easier. This includes reduced insulin, increased growth hormone, enhanced epinephrine signalling and a small boost in metabolism. Let's examine this hormonal changes:
  1. Insulin: Insulin increases when we eat. When we fast, insulin decreases dramatically (1). Lower levels of insulin facilitate fat burning.
  2. Human growth hormone (HGH): Levels of growth hormone may skyrocket during a fast, increasing as much as 5-fold (2, 3). Growth hormone is a hormone that can aid fat loss and muscle gain, among other things.
  3. Norepinephrine (noradrenaline): The nervous system sends norepinephrine to the fat cells, making them break down body fat into free fatty acids that can be burned for energy (4, 5).
There is plenty of information about Intermittent fasting in the internet, My favorite book which I highly recommend is: EAT, STOP, EAT by Brad Pilon, a book pack with research that proof the efficiency of Intermittent Fasting and one of the easiest way to make this practice part of your lifestyle. I highly recommend to lose weight first with a proven program like ChiroThin Weight Loss program and then maintain the weight down effortlessly with lifestyle strategist.
