What this means is that damaging free radicals, cellular waste, and unfavorable genetics are all LESS LIKELY to adversely effect you. That’s right, you can improve your genetics through fasting! Genetics aren’t fixed but they are fluid. This is called epigenetics. Ultimately, this improvement in cellular function decreases inflammation and extends longevity! You heard that right… fasting slows down the aging process!
In addition to these amazing benefits, fasting improves your metabolism. With fasting , your calorie burning rate remains stable, unlike with calorie restricted diets where the metabolic rate often decreases. And fasting also helps regulate hunger hormones, so hunger decreases with time. The result is weight loss, loss of fat and increased lean muscle. This is simply by adjusting when you eat, without changing what you eat. Fasting can also lower cancer risk and improve cognition.
