Why are intermittent fasting and intermittent exercise so important? Find out.
0:15 Circadian rhythms
0:35 Sustained = stress
Today we're going to talk about "intermittent" and what that really means. We're going to cover intermittent fasting, the biggest intermittent fasting mistake, and intermittent exercise.
A healthy body has really good circadian rhythms. These are natural waves of rhythm like:
• Sleep cycles
• Eating cycles
• Rhythms of digestion
• Rhythms of hormones
Anything we do of a sustained nature adds more stress to the body. For example, one of the most important things intermittent fasting does is correcting digestion. The body was not designed to consume on a sustained basis (snacking in between meals). Sustained eating can create sustained stimulation of insulin, which can lead to insulin resistance and diabetes. It's very important to fast, and not eat anything when you're fasting. But, you can drink water and take supplements during fasting.
High-intensity interval training is intermittent exercise. This can help stimulate growth hormone. Doing this high-intensity exercise intermittently is important because it won't stimulate the opposing hormone: cortisol. It keeps the stress down while still stimulating growth hormone. The growth hormone is stimulated by the high intensity. But, cortisol is stimulated by duration, which you're keeping short.
Recovery is also very important. During the downtime, when you're relaxing, you need to stay off your phone and try to keep your mind from overthinking.
