What Is The Optimal Fasting Period For The Biggest Weight Loss And Why Is This Healthy For You?

Fasting might sound revolutionary, but it is the best and healthiest way to lose weight, plus it is not that hard if you know how to do it. This article will teach you exactly that and particularly how long you should fast for in order to have the maximum weight loss and health benefits.

Fasting can be done for longer and shorter periods. You can fast for one week, or you can fast for one day. However, if your goal is weight loss and increased health, then you should not fast for longer periods than allow your body to turn into a fat burning machine.

In order to figure out how long one should fast for in order to get optimal health benefits, it is necessary to measure the blood levels of the following hormones - insulin, glucagon, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. Decreases in insulin and increases in the other three result in improved health and increased fat burning rates, so what we are looking for is the time period, which would provide optimum levels for those.

The research done by several scientists, as witnessed in Brad Pilon's book "Eat-Stop-Eat" shows that the optimum levels of those hormones are achieved between the 18th and 24th hour after the fast has started. After the 24th hour the blood levels drop for several reasons, which are irrelevant here. What is important, however, is that this research has shown us that one should fast for between 18 and 24 hours in order to achieve the maximum possible success in weight loss.

So how should one fit this into their busy daily schedule? The beauty of the fasting system, which is not as restrictive as a regular diet, is that you only need to fast for 1 or 2 periods per week and in the remainder of the time you can eat whatever you like. So, for example, you can start your fast after an early dinner at 7 PM and then fast until dinner the following day. This gives you full 24 hours and all the health and fat burning benefits associated with that.

This theory of fasting might sound a little too groundbreaking for many, and the author of this article does not intend to convince you that this is the best way to lose weight. What you should do is read some more reviews of weight loss systems, and then make up your mind on your own. Have fun losing weight while fasting!
