FASTING A GUICK GUIDE

Fasting is considered by many health enthusiasts as one of the best methods of controlling overweight and diabetes.

  This book will give you more insight

Many of us were told that weight gain was due to taking on too much calories therefore if we are considering losing some weight the best method is to eat less.

 Many eat less until they reach starvation and still do not see much difference as the fat kept piling on.

Until it goes to the point that they end up with not just fat but type 2 diabetes too. 
Then we were told that lowering the carbohydrates was the way to keep fat off. C.I.C.O calories in calories out were the best way; eat then exercise. But this also proved wrong because the "eat less and lose more theory" did not work also.
Later more studies proved that the underlying cause of obesity seems to be hormone related rather than caloric.

The hormone insulin is a fat-storing hormone.When we eat insulin increases and signal our body to store food energy as fat to use later when the need arises. Although this method has helped humans for many years in today's world the need never arises in most cases.

High insulin levels result in obesity and later goes on to type 2 diabetes as the cells develop high resistance to insulin

In type1 and type 2 diabetes insulin certainly lowers blood sugar but causes weight gain. In type 1 insulin levels are low so blood sugar is high.

Type 2 insulin levels are consistently high, but blood sugar is high because the cell develops a high resistance to insulin. 
Doctors consistently increase the insulin dosage and as type 2 diabetes gets worst so does obesity.

What can we do to help both of these conditions obesity and type 2 diabetes?  Studies  said that It seems that there could  be  a "one plaster that could be suitable to cover both wounds"

It is said diet and fasting could do both. Studies showed that a low-carb diet coupled with vegetables, high-quality protein adequate amount of good fat would show marked improvement in regulating blood sugar but no marked improvement in weight loss.

It was hypothesized the body when going into assuming starvation will hang on to its caloric reserves and instead of reducing weight actually gain weight.

Further studies proved that the best way to overcome this challenge is to send the body into a fasting mode. Not only did blood sugar levels fall but weight reductions were observed also .

However to the delight of many. Some underlining health issues other than the two mentioned showed marked improvement and many completely went away. 

This happens because fasting actually sends the body into detox mode where water and toxin are released as the liver .kidneys and colon detoxify. The result is more energy and a sense of well-being.

This really sounds crazy how can one feel better when the body is starved of nutrients. These promoters of fasting must have lost their minds. 

We were thought that to function we need at least 3 meals daily maximum 6 to include mid-morning mid afternoon snacks and a nightcap.
However, reports came that when fasting the mind becomes clearer
 the brain sharper and energy improved. Who would not want to experience this?

Fasting is voluntarily depriving the body of food over a period of time for specific. reasons. these reasons vary from religious, to protest. Weight loss, blood sugar reduction as in the case of diabetes, and curing of life threatening diseases even cancers

Fasting must be planned and the mind prepared to complete the task.
If this is not done there is the possibility of breaking the fast before the time it was intended to last for this resulting in losing most of the benefits.

There are some things necessary to have on hand to ensure the body does not go into a toxic shock such as lemons,  bone broth with sea salt, and spring water .sometimes vitamins especially vitamin D, and distilled water if you are trying to reverse cancer. Most of all have a good reliable person to be on hand especially if you intend to go on long periods of 3 days and over.

In the end, there will be significant weight reduction and lower blood sugar. levels.

Remember to take probiotics when coming off a fast and gentle include into the body like light vegetable soups and juices.

Most importantly do not return to bad dietary practices like massive intake of carbohydrates, junk foods unhealthy fats sugary desserts, and drinks.

NB. The practice  of 5 hrs between meals, reduction of sugary drinks and desserts  and some strengthening exercise to firm up muscles have been proven to keep the weight off and stabilize the blood
