Many new fasters may wonder why intermittent fasting can help lose weight even though no food restriction. There are several reasons.
Fasting balances your insulin level
Insulin is the key hormone in fat metabolism and intermittent fasting can balance out its levels so that the fat in the body can be well controlled and reduced.
Fasting regulates your appetite
Fasting can reduce ghrelin, a hunger hormone that stimulates appetite, increases food intake, and promotes fat storage. Reduced ghrelin will make you feel more satiated and stay on track.
Fasting makes metabolism restored
Intermittent fasting makes your metabolism burn hotter so that the harmful “garbage” in your body can be eliminated. As such, your body will be in a fit situation and the risk of some diseases will be reduced such as heart disease and cancer.
Fasting makes you snack less
Snacking can easily lead you to overeat and it is always neglected because snacks won’t bring you as much pressure as meals do. But you’ll consume fewer snacks with intermittent fasting.
