How it works, why you should do it, and the AMAZING benefits!
When we miss a meal or two, and abstain from food for a lengthy period of time, all of our bodily functions become extremely enhanced and superior. This includes our 5 senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and feel. Our energy levels also increase, and the brain begins functioning at a higher level and releases feel good neurotransmitters such as serotonin into the system, giving us a bright, cheerful, and poised demeanour. Your body burns fat at a higher level, converting stored calories into energy. Your body’s detoxification processes speed up considerably as your body burns through superfluous tissue and harmful toxins, eliminating them from the body, or even converting them into useful nutrients.
Rather than the ravenous hunger people have become accustomed to, where you cannot think or function properly until you have eaten something. Hunger becomes a pleasant sensation, and all you experience is a mild longing for food. Once you begin eating you seriously enjoy the food, but you could easily wait another few hours if necessary and still function at a high level. This is even after fasting for 20-22 hours! For me this has been an amazing side effect as hunger no longer dominates my life as it used to.
So with so many amazing benefits, why don’t more people know about it, and why have we always been told to eat 3 hearty meals a day with snacks in between? There could be many answers to these questions, but one major reason I believe is that the food industry is a huge industry generating billions of dollars each year. Imagine the amount of companies that would go under if millions of people began skipping breakfast and even lunch! There are many powerful corporations in the world who wouldn’t want this to happen. Also, if people started becoming extremely healthy and minimising disease rates, imagine how many billions of dollars the pharmaceutical and medical industries would lose! IF could be the human race’s chance to create a silent revolution against many unethical companies supplying and marketing low nutrient, and calorie dense processed junk foods, and regain back our health in the process.
