3 Beneficial Effects of Fasting:

  1. Autophagy (“self-eating”) is a detox process your body undergoes to clean out damaged cells and regenerate new ones. The benefits of autophagy include reduced inflammation, improvement in daily bodily function, prevention of neurodegenerative diseases, and increased longevity.
  2. Ketosis is a normal metabolic process that occurs when the body does not have enough glucose for energy. Instead, it burns stored fat for energy. This makes your body’s primary energy source stored body fat. Ketosis also promotes improved mental health since there are no blood sugar swings and ketones cause less oxidative stress then glucose.
  3. Hormesis is the body’s adaptive mechanism to mild stress. This will trigger protective metabolic pathways such as AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) that increase mitochondrial density and boost the immune system.

 

FAQ about Fasting Days™

What breaks a fast while intermittent fasting? 

You can find many questions on Google about what breaks a fast while intermittent fasting:

  • Can I drink coffee while fasting?
  • Will lemon water kick me out of a fasted state?
  • Can I drink bulletproof coffee while fasting?
  • Do 100 calories break a fast?

Small amounts of calories don’t raise insulin levels significantly enough to kick you out of ketosis. It’s the endogenous ketones that your body creates in a fasted state that stimulate autophagy [15], also which promote macroautophagy in the brain [16].

The fasted state is not an on/off switch that immediately gets turned off once you have a tiny number of calories. The research is not clear on exactly what it is with fasting that causes the positive effects seen in the clinical trials, but most researcher hypotheses revolve around
a) letting insulin levels drop below a certain threshold
b) creating an acute energy deficit

In conclusion, use common sense and understand that the fasted state and the positive effects that result from it isn’t an on/off switch, or an ‘all-or-nothing’ kind of deal. The small number of calories found in a greens drink, essential amino acid supplement like Fasting Days™, lemon water or black coffee/tea will not break your fast or kick you out of ketosis.

 

Isn’t It Unhealthy to Skip Breakfast?
No. Most stereotypical breakfast skippers have unhealthy lifestyles. Skipping breakfast in itself is not unhealthy.

 

Can I Take Supplements While Fasting?
Yes. However, some supplements like fat-soluble vitamins may work better when taken with meals.

 

Can I Work out While Fasted?
Yes. However, it is recommended to consume a drink that contains essential amino acids (EAAs) like Fating Days during a workout while fasting to prevent muscle loss.

 

Will Fasting Cause Muscle Loss?
All weight loss methods can cause muscle loss which is why it’s important to lift weights and keep dietary protein intake high. Generally speaking, muscle loss during fasting isn’t a concern unless you are fasting for periods greater than 24 hours.

 

Will Fasting Slow Down My Metabolism?
No. Studies show that short-term fasts actually boost metabolism. However, long duration fasts of 3 or more days can suppress metabolism.
