Some Benefits of Intermittent Fasting
in Temple Hills

Intermittent fasting in Temple Hills is when you fast of a period of time. Let’s say in a 24 hour period you eat for 8 hours and fast for 16 hours.  That means not eating anything for that period of time. You can drink black coffee, water or green tea.

One of the most important aspects of intermittent fasting is that your body initiates important cellular recycle and reprocesses (known as autophagy) and also hormonal changes that make stored body fat easier to burn.

You increase human growth hormone which causes beneficial changes in several genes and molecules relatd to longevity and disease protection.
