Daily Intermittent Fasting is best for Calorie Restriction, Health, and Weight Loss

OSSINING, N.Y., April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Given the popularity of the BBC Video "Eat Fast Live Longer" by Dr. Michael Mosley, lots of people are trying intermittent fasting. We like Dr. Michael Mosley who does an excellent job as host. Some swear by intermittent fasting, saying it's a way to lose weight that they can tolerate. Others say it's just as health-enhancing as calorie restriction. LivingTheCR Way.com (http://www.livingthecrway.com/landing.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fhome.aspx) disagrees.

When you practice calorie restriction regularly, your body reduces its insulin production to adjust to lower food intake. Long-term calorie restrictors have greatly reduced fasting insulin. The pancreas shifts to production of glucagon, the hormone that keeps energy available to cells when food is limited. Soon, wonderful things begin to happen: Excess body fat is burned. And the heart, brain, and other organs grow more energy-efficient and protected from diseases.

In contrast, intermittent fasting jerks the body around. You may do with little food for a few days and then gorge on the next. While little insulin is needed for the low-calorie days, your body gets a huge surprise on the days when you eat full meals. The pancreas and insulin production have a difficult job on the full-calorie days and so do cells that may have started to become energy-efficient on the fasting days – only to be overwhelmed with food on the full-calorie days.

To take advantage of the importance of time away from food, LivingTheCRWay.com suggests Daily Intermittent Fasting (http://calorierestrictiondietplan.com/healthful-recipes/daily-intermittent-fasting-is-best-for-brain-and-health/) as a balanced way to work the benefits of a fast into your diet. You get extraordinary benefits of fasting plus the benefits of letting your body adjust to a regular routine. After all, fasting benefits are not so dependent on how much time you spend without food: The biochemistry that's expressed during the fast is what is important.

LivingtheCRWay.com offers a Daily Intermittent Fasting meal plan that keeps glucose levels low while you eat. So when you start your daily fasting period, your glucose levels are likely to be low already. That means the cognitive and neuroprotective benefits of ketones arrive much faster than if you practice intermittent fasting with excessive calorie intake on certain days that likely leaves you with very high glucose for the start of your fast. It may take hours or days to work that glucose level down to a healthy place.

The key to getting extraordinary benefits from calorie restriction and intermittent fasting is to get glucose and insulin low enough for long enough to stimulate ketones. We have made that easier than ever with the Daily Intermittent Fasting Meal Plan. It is not a requirement for following living the CR Way, but for people who want optimal health and weight loss, it is certainly worth considering. Make sure to check with your doctor before starting a fasting regimen.
