SALT CITY – There are many conversations about intermittent fasting (IF) at lunchtime tables, in the gym, and on social media.
Supporters of the diet claim that it is no diet at all; It is an adaptation to a eating pattern. However, many health professionals who advocate non-dietary welfare approaches are certain: temporary fasting is absolutely a diet. After all, a diet is everything that limits when and how much food is consumed.
A diet has been around for decades. Some are obvious and others, like fasting, are smart. With health claims like weight loss, improved digestion and improved metabolic health, it's understandable that people are interested in trying. But before breakfast is banned, it is important to become curious, because there is extensive research against diets.
A study by the Australian National Medical Health and Research Council found that the maximum intended weight loss is between six and twelve months. In addition, the majority of individuals will regain most of their weight within two years. At the age of five, people win everything again.
Everything that deliberately wants to lose weight and what pretends to be a panacea is a diet. Intermittent fasting claims to do both, but these statements should be scrutinized because the human body is complex.
A single change in the way you eat can not eliminate a condition, even if it's just the time. In fact, restriction and inflexible eating can lead to eating disorders that are detrimental to overall health and wellbeing. Research from the Journal of Obesity found that striving to lose weight through dieting leads to mental, physiological and social stress that is more damaging to health than the weight itself.
When it comes to intermittent fasting as a method of losing weight, it seems in the beginning to work. If this is the case, however, there is only a caloric deficit. No long-term studies on intermittent fasting in humans have been performed.
Another claimed advantage of intermittent fasting is that it is a biological system called autophagy and a natural recycling process that occurs in cells. This is the reason for claiming to fight Alzheimer's disease or increase life expectancy. However, these studies are performed on worms, mice and yeasts. Researchers have no way to measure autophagy in humans.
Although some studies have been done on men, this is not long term. and no significant studies on women were conducted. Women are more sensitive to irregular eating habits and intermittent fasting may interfere with hormone regulation. Menstrual disorders were found in a study of women participating in Ramadan. The omission of meals can also lead to a later seizure. According to the National Eating Disorders Association, 60% of those with an eating disorder are female.
Many people want to connect better with their bodies, but if they put aside hunger until the "proper" mealtime is reached, that relationship is just messed up. One way to reconnect with innate wisdom when it comes to your body's nutrition is intuitive eating. The second of 1
Hunger is an innate physical reaction that lets your body know that it needs food. Yet, many people seem to believe that hunger is something to fear. Instead of nourishing the body when it is hungry, society states that it must be suppressed or ignored. Many people believe that they should make their bodies believe that they are not hungry with sodas, coffee, tea, kombucha, lollipops or appetite suppressants.
It is important to satisfy the needs of the body through proper nutrition. And skipping breakfast is not necessary to be healthy. In fact, it has been shown that breakfast eaters have more exercise in the morning and later on in the day eat less balancing than fasting.
Intermittent fasting can lead to a loss of enjoyment of food, constipation, dizziness, malnutrition, decreased metabolism, eating disorders, feeling "out of control" when it comes to food, irritability and increased gallstones. On the other hand, a regular and consistent eating pattern can increase dietary variety, balance blood sugar and regulate mood.
When it comes to following the fast trend, think about it. Are the underrated potential benefits worthwhile? Or does the breakfast sound good? Devrie Pettit ” style=”width:65px; height:65px;”/>
