“This is probably just another one of those fad diets, isn’t it?”
Not at all! In fact, nutritional authorities often refer to Intermittent Fasting as the ‘Ancient Secret’ of staying lean and healthy because it’s been used to elicit enormous health benefits for thousands of years.
Not only is IF used for general weight management, but it’s also used to repair cells, enhance mental focus, support immunity, boost male hormones, and increase lifespan.
Intermittent Fasting is popular for a reason, and that's because it's not just another diet, it's a healthy lifestyle plan that literally transforms you from the inside out using the power of both nutrition and exercise.
“I’ve tried so many other diets before… Will this really work for me and my crazy busy schedule?”
Absolutely - So many men turn to Intermittent Fasting because of the simplicity it brings to their daily lives… No more hassling with breakfast, wasting hours in the kitchen preparing meals in advance, or having to eat every 2-3 hours.
Once you get started you’ll find that you’re more energetic, more focused, and productive during the day - Plus, your stomach will shrink, so you’ll experience fewer hunger cravings and be far less distracted.
And since your scheduled eating periods are later in the day, that means you get to enjoy eating the foods you love when you have the opportunity to relax after a long, busy day.
"Isn’t going long periods of time without eating bad for me? Won’t I burn muscle?”
Many researchers conclude that fasting may also increase the body’s responsiveness to insulin, which regulates blood sugar and helps control hunger - both of which contribute to enhancing health and quality of life.
As for your muscle - several studies on IF have also shown that a certain protein-synthesis boosting hormone dramatically increases as a direct result from fasting. Having higher levels of this hormone helps with muscle building. Bigger muscles mean more strength and more endurance and as you can tell, these are characteristics that every guy looking to put on lean size would cherish.
“How am I going to fight hunger cravings? What if I fall off the wagon?”
Good news: The answer is no. While the idea of “fasting” may make you think of “starving”, intermittent fasting is more about cutting way back on calories for short time periods. Doing so will affect your hunger and cravings over time in a positive way. The idea: As your body adjusts, you become satisfied more easily with smaller portions because your stomach capacity shrinks - along with your appetite. Falling off the wagon tends to not be a concern when following an IF program because technically, you don’t need to change anything about your diet to benefit from IF… Meaning you still can enjoy the foods you love - just in a smaller window of time. Which makes it very appealing to many people.
