Intermittent Fasting

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting. It does not say anything about which foods to eat, but rather when you should eat them.

There are several different intermittent fasting methods, all of which split the day or week into eating periods and fasting periods. Most people already “fast” every day, while they sleep. Intermittent fasting can be as simple as extending that fast a little longer.

What are the purpose of intermittent fasting?

There are many researches that points IF having various health benefits. A lot of people practised intermittent fasting for the purpose of losing weight, “resetting” their body’s metabolism, to boost productivity, or for sport purposes such as improved performance, stamina, strength, and agility.

However, at the end of the day, as are all diets, it is not recommended to practise such diets for longterm as in could seriously impact your body’s health. How IF works is that during the prolonged fasting time, it put your body under starvation, which leads to ketosis (uses ketones as fuel instead of sugar). Prolonged ketosis state will cause ketoacidosis and disrupt metabolism and physiological failure (organ dysfunction) in severe cases.

Hence, it is best to consult your physician or see a nutritionist/ dietitians before deciding whether IF is suitable and what are the appropriate methods, especially among diabetic patients.
