In good shape thanks to fasting

Advice from Doctor Bludau, specialist in internal medicine - Fuerteventura


When the nice weather comes back, people look at themselves in the mirror and don't like what they see. This is when fasting becomes popular again. Intermittent fasting is especially popular nowadays.

HEALTH  WELLNESS Instead of following the strict rules of a diet for weeks with the risk of suffering from the yo-yo effect, with this technique, we skip one meal every day or we fast for entire days. This way the body learns to live on its fat reserves. Furthermore, new studies have demonstrated another important effect: there is a regularisation of the biorhythm, of the insulin and glucose levels and of the intestinal flora, of the interleukins, triglycerides and infection indicators in the blood are reduced. This way, fasting helps to fight obesity, cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. Depending on preferences and daily routines, we can make a 16-hour break during the night (8 pm until 12 midday), skip one of the three daily meals or eat normally for five days and then eat nothing for the other two days. It is important to not ingest any calories during the breaks (no snacks or alcohol) and drink sufficient amounts of liquids. We can drink water as well as tea and coffee without sugar moderately. During the rest of the time, you can eat anything you want moderately. This way the metabolic processes of the body are stimulated, you feel healthier and better and after a few weeks, you can look in the mirror again without getting into a bad mood.
