How To Support Your Body When Fasting
The popularity of the “Keto diet” has exploded in recent years. The diet gets its name from the word “ketosis” which is the metabolic process that occurs when the body doesn’t have enough glucose for energy. When this happens, the body will instead begin to burn stored fat for energy, resulting in weight loss, among other benefits. The goal, therefore, of the Keto diet is to significantly cut back on net carbohydrates and focus on eating high amounts of healthy fats and moderate amounts of protein.
Along with the changes to the types of food ingested, the Keto diet also encourages a practice called “intermittent fasting.” This practice basically limits the windows of time in which you eat every day. It means restricting eating hours to something like a 10, 8, or maybe even a 6 hour window and remaining in a “fasting” mode for the other hours of the day. Limiting eating hours allows the body to undergo more thorough detoxification and may lead to greater fat burning potential.
There are some imbalances that can occur in the body, when intermittent fasting. Fasting can lead to electrolyte imbalances, depleted energy, lost muscle mass, and low blood sugar levels. Fasting Days by Innotech can help support your body during fasting by providing amino acids as well as vitamins and minerals. The amino acids prevent muscle loss and support hormone balance; whereas the vitamins and minerals provide electrolytes to prevent dehydration and encourage proper enzymatic functions, among other things.
So if you are practicing intermittent fasting, the use of Fasting Days will help in energy metabolism, normal blood glucose levels, connective tissue formation, proper muscle function and normal electrolyte balance, allowing you to fuel your body and feel great in the fasting state.
