The key to maintaining weight at a normal level, but also preventing diseases such as cancer and dementia, may be a regimen where the black post alternates with the days when you normally feed
Intermittently, a diet that fills in the US and the UK, involves alternating between periods of normal eating and those in which you do not put anything in your mouth. That means jumping over a table or even eating at no time for 24-48 hours.
For beginners, breaks of at least 8-12 hours are recommended (between breakfast and dinner you are allowed to drink only water), but "advancers" reach the performance of eating "one day yes, one day no". Intermittent or "fasting" resembles the primitive feeding of man, which required starvation during periods of food, followed by "overeating", especially after hunting.
However, the diet does not address anyone, but only those who know how to eat properly, and have excluded junk-food, excess sweets and fats. It is also contraindicated in gastritis, ulcer or diabetes.
Intermittent: two days a week, just eat 500 calories
The caloric deficit speeds up the process of slimming, and once the body learns with black periods, the fat burning mechanisms remain active during periods of normal feeding. The body adapts to this draconic program and assimilates better nutrients and proteins.
"Intermittent" is not without risk, and one of them is the body's impossibility to mobilize energy from fat stores. A threat is also the excess during periods when you have to eat normally and the impossibility of digesting all the food.
So it is recommended that after the posting period continue to feed yourself normally. An intermittent post, promoted by Dr. Michael Mosley, a fervent supporter of the diet, is a 5: 2 type. This means that for five days a week eat normally (up to 2,000 calories a day), and two days eat foods that account for only 500-600 calories.
"Initially, I jumped over breakfast and dinner, and I took my 600 calories just by noon. The problem is, I hate to start my hungry day, so I just opted for a generous breakfast. I came to the conclusion that this variant is not good either, because I was very irritated by the evening. And so we came to the ideal version: 300 calories for breakfast and 300 calories for lunch, "says the British doctor.
Breakfast was composed mostly of boiled eggs and a thin slice of bacon, green tea, unsweetened coffee, and at noon eat chicken or grilled fish and various vegetable dishes. "It's incredible how few calories the vegetables contain and how delicious they can be when you're hungry," says Mosley, who has had better analyzes after six weeks. "I lost 6 pounds, my blood sugar returned to normal (I was close to diabetes), and cholesterol. I look better and I feel better. Sometimes I eat burgers or cakes, but in the days of post respect the food scheme. "
Hunger, the cancer enemy
Item is also a solution to slow down the aging and prevent certain diseases. In times when the body does not receive food or receives small amounts, it manages to control the production of free radicals or other substances responsible for the occurrence of certain chronic diseases, such as the IGF-1 hormone. It is responsible for the uncontrolled cellular multiplication, a process underlying the development of cancerous tumors. "In posttime, cells are no longer growing at the same rhythm, the focus is on repairing tissues. Multiplying cells to continuous fire is beneficial, but when you are a child, you need to grow.
In adulthood, there is a risk of illness, "is the theory released by Professor Valter Longo, director of the Institute of Longevity at the South California University, a fervent supporter of the regime. Caloric limitations have been associated with slowing the aging process and, implicitly, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. According to a study published in 2010 in "Experimental Gerontology", the intermittent post may increase the production of sirtuins, proteins that prevent cell damage and inhibit the secretion of enzymes involved in the aging process. Another study by researchers at the University of Catania, Italy, has shown that fasting can increase resistance to stress and, implicitly, to all the degenerative processes brought by it.
The advice of Romanian nutritionists: cut off from dinner!
Romanian doctors do not look good at this diet, which they consider unbalanced. "I do not think food pauses help lower blood sugar levels, on the contrary, eating irregularities is a cause of diabetes.
In the morning, we need energy and it is silly not to eat breakfast. Lunch is also important, it helps us continue our activity until the evening. The problem is that, traditionally, lunch for Romanians is composed of the first and the second kind, and possibly the dessert, which is not right. At dinner, we no longer need many calories (only 20% of the number of daily calories). That's what I understand, but making so long breaks does not seem right to me. Why change metabolism? "Says Nutritionist Bogdan Guinea, who believes that" eating is a primary and reproductive instinct. "
