Intermittent Fasting: A way to lose weight without working out or without trying
Alright quick question for everyone. What if you can lose weight without working out?!
How many people want to lose weight without working out or without trying. Well, I’m here to tell you how to do that. I’m Doctor Christopher Hood from Hood Chiropractic and here we go into 2017. New Year New You is the theme for everyone I speak to in the community right now. The number one thing that comes up is “I want to lose weight, I want to get in shape, but I don’t really want to work out. So how do I do that?” First thing we’re going to teach today, which I think is just a blessing to you guys this year is Incremental Fasting. Now, you can go read on this, my good friend, Dr. Joseph Mercola, he talks about this if you want to follow up, but Intermittent fasting is how all the stars that you see in Hollywood lose weight quick for roles. That’s it. I know you say, “well how do lose their baby weight? How do they get thin quicker? How do they get lean and mean?” They do it like this. The last meal you eat during the day is before midnight. Just be with me here. I’m not telling you to fast or starve yourself. When I say, Intermittent fasting people get afraid of it. What I’m telling you to do is that your last meal of the day is like midnight, and you don’t eat again until 11 o’clock the next day, 12 o’clock if you can push it. So, you’re literally going another 12 hours without eating. Now your first meal after you do this needs to be high in protein and fat. So, you don’t want to like, go for a big carbonated smoothie or a go get an egg and cheese biscuit from a fast food restaurant. It needs to be high in protein and fat. The way it works is one of the number one users of energy by the human body is digestion. And so you’re constantly using energy to digest food. And when that happens, think about it like this, your digestive system, your liver, your pancreas, it never gets a brake. So, your pancreas is always producing insulin to break down sugar. So, what happens when you Intermittent fast is your body resets its response called leptin. It’s a hormone, leptin response. And so there for your metabolism starts to pick back up your blood sugar levels starts to stabilize. You don’t have to do this for a long period of time, I recommend something like thirty days. And listen, if you’re a diabetic or you have health challenges you like, the average Joe or Josephine, you want to go to your doctor and just double check that it’ll work for you. But this is what everyone does, this is what stars do, my wife and I entered this phase as of January 1st. Cause we gained a couple extra pounds through the holidays. But it’s called Intermittent fasting. http://www.mercola.com/ has a great article properly if you want some more information. Not that I want to promote someone else’s website, you should be going to mine. http://www.hoodchiropratic.com. but I just want you to know, detailed information is on Joe Mercola’s website. Intermittent fasting the secret to losing weight quickly and healthy and easy, not hard on the body. Everyone says to me, gosh I’m going to be so hungry if I don’t’ eat. First day or two, and then after that when your blood sugar stabilizes, you feel better your energy level goes up, you’re not even hungry when you do it. You can use caffeine in the morning by the way if you are hungry, like coffee or tea, just don’t put any milk or cream in that, I recommend a little bit of coconut oil in the coffee and that kind of cuts the acidity of the coffee and it tastes great, especially if you like coconut. So, I hope that helps, Intermittent fasting. I’m Doctor Christopher Hood from Hood Chiropractic. Remember to share this information with your friends.
