Hey, so you’re interested in starting intermittent fasting, or maybe you have a family member or friend that’s interested in starting it. Well, this video is going to be your entire overview. It’s going to give you everything you need to know to get started with intermittent fasting. So the cool thing is intermittent fasting is really easy to get started on. Now, the caveat is there is some little intricacies that you need to be paying attention to and that’s exactly why I created this video in some serious detail. So what we’re going to cover in this video is a number of different things, and I’m going to go down the line so that you have a solid idea of what we’re going to cover.
So first off we’re going to talk about what is intermittent fasting and why you shouldn’t overthink it. We’re going to talk about the basic benefits, not going to spend a whole lot of time on that because if you’re watching this video, you’re probably already interested, and your curiosity has been peaked because you know someone that has had crazy success with it. But we’re going to talk about the physical benefits. In fact, fat loss and some muscle gain. We’re going to talk about the mental, and the focus benefits. We’re also going to talk about the cellular rejuvenation benefits, but again, not going to spend a lot of time there.
Simply put, intermittent fasting isn’t a diet. Intermittent fasting is a meal timing plan. So basically what you’re doing is you’re focusing on a specific period of time in which you are abstaining from food and abstaining from calories and then you have a set period of time in which you consolidate all of your food, all of your calories. You’re basically going for an extended period of time and not eating fasting. And then you’re going into a period of time where you are eating, your fed window. So one of the biggest problems that people make with fasting is they overthink it, okay?
They tend to complicate things. And it’s human nature for us to do that. So you really need to keep it very, very simple. Intermittent fasting is just not eating for a set period of time and then consolidating your calories. There’s a lot of different intricacies in between, but for all intents and purposes, that’s the goal. So let’s briefly talk about the benefits. Okay. There are huge physical benefits and that’s probably the main reason that people are attracted to intermittent fasting, and it’s a good chance that that’s why you’re watching this video right now. Physical benefits include dramatic, dramatic fat loss all while maintaining muscle. Okay. Also, increasing muscle tone, increasing muscle density, and there’re some other general things like actually improving your vascular function as well that can improve your look. So in addition to helping out your skin, helping out your appearance in that regard, there are other benefits too, like your nails, your hair, all kinds of things simply because of the nutrient uptake that occurs.
So I hope this overview has given you a solid perspective on what intermittent fasting is and what intermittent fasting is not. Honestly, it’s for everybody. You can use intermittent fasting with keto. You can use intermittent fasting with paleo, being a vegan or whatever you want. The thing is intermittent fasting is the proper protocol in which you are not eating versus what you are eating.
