Simple Trick MELTS Fat (No Diet or Exercise!)
Wouldn’t it be great if you could lose weight without giving up any of the food you love?
Without counting a single calorie?
And without lifting a finger to exercise?
It sounds too good to be true, but new research shows a simple trick that can help you MELT FAT by switching off your hunger hormone.
No diet or exercise necessary. It literally couldn’t be any easier.
I’ve talked to you plenty of times about the benefits of intermittent fasting. It’s shortening your window of eating a few times a week. Some people also call it time-restricted eating.
Studies show that restricting your eating window can help you lose weight and improve your overall metabolic health.
But this study, published in the journal Obesity, is one of the first to evaluate why.
Two groups of people ate the exact same meals for four days.
But one group restricted their window of eating from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (6-hour window), while the second group ate from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (12-hour window).
Both groups burned about the same amount of calories, but that’s where the similarities ended.
Blood and urine samples revealed that the 6-hour window group had lower levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin.
Even better? They also burned more fat in a 24-hour period than the group eating during a typical 12-hour window.
This is likely because stopping eating earlier in the day causes the body to switch from burning carbs to burning fat for energy (although more studies will help determine the exact reason).
But at the end of the day, the reason why restricting your window of eating to the morning hours is so beneficial for your weight and your overall health is because it puts you in sync with your body’s circadian rhythm.
Your body has an internal clock that regulates all of its functions – including the release of hormones. Based on these rhythms, it’s clear that your body was designed to burn calories earlier in the day and to store them later in the day.
It’s so simple.
For those of you who have been putting off trying intermittent fasting because you’re afraid you’ll be too miserable (read: hungry all the time), this study shows you that the exact opposite is true.
By making less of the hunger hormone, you’ll actually be LESS hungry than if you ate for a longer period throughout the day. And in the process, you’ll be burning a ton of extra fat without changing a thing about your diet.
