The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is how Fasting has many benefits for the entire body, including the brain and longevity. This should be of particular interest to Fitness Enthusiasts, People with ADHD, Paleo Dieters because most people think they have to eat at a set time daily, and a certain amount of times daily. However fasting every now and then and putting mild strain on the body can help one’s body become more resilient.
One of the most important pieces of information the article tries to convey and communicate on IF include its benefits for: Weight Loss, Increasing Longevity, Blood pressure regulation, Increase in mTOR for bodybuilding, increased Growth Hormone production, Saving money (by skipping a meal), and the increase in BDNF. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘This study discusses how Human (and non-human) studies show that IER increases synaptic plasticity (marker of learning and memory), enhances performance on memory tests in the elderly, leads to the growth of new neurons, decreases risk for neurodegenerative diseases.’
In discussing the article’s creation, Akshay Khanna, Editor at TrackMyStack said:
“In humans, excessive energy intake is associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and certain cancers and is a major cause of disability and death in industrialized countries. Both caloric (energy) restriction (CR) and reduced meal frequency/intermittent fasting can suppress the development of various diseases and can increase life span in rodents by mechanisms involving reduced oxidative damage and increased stress resistance. Many of the beneficial effects of CR and fasting appear to be mediated by the nervous system..”
Regular readers of TrackMyStack will notice the article takes a familiar tone, which has been described as ‘evidence-based research’.
TrackMyStack now welcomes comments and encourages tracking the efficacy of their fast from readers, in relation to the article. Knowing the true effectiveness of Intermittent Fasting may be difficult as the results may vary from person to person especially if the person has chronic conditions, it is important to use TrackMyStack and keep a journal of how one feel’s to get a good idea on its efficacy amongst a general population. The reason is simply because people among various communities experience wildly sporadic results from Intermittent Fasting, having people come and track their journey on a platform like TrackMyStack provides a way to see how it affects everyone in different ways and helps build a meaningful case study.
