Intermittent Fasting Helps…

To prevent diabetes, heart disease, and lowers cholesterol!

Of course fasting helps to speed up weight loss and control appetite, but new studies on periodic fasting, by the American College of Cardiology, have also determined:

  • periodic intermittent fasting seems to reduce the risk of falling victim to type 2 diabetes by 50%
  • intermittent fasting also decreases your risk of developing heart disease
  • HDL cholesterol increases during an intermittent fast
  • triglycerides decrease during an intermittent fast
  • human growth hormone (HGH) levels increase during a fast, leading to weight loss and muscle gain
  • HGH increases by a factor of 20 in men and a factor of 13 in women, on average
