“Window” Weight Loss Trick SLASHES Diabetes Risk (and More!)
Whenever we talk about dieting, it’s laser-focused on one thing.
And that, of course, is LOSING WEIGHT.
Now, if you’re overweight, that’s of course an important goal. But weight loss alone isn’t the ONLY thing you ought to be thinking about…
Shedding the RIGHT KIND of weight is critical too. Because all fat isn’t the same. And belly blubber is some of the worst.
See, belly fat sends your risk for diabetes, cancer, and other deadly diseases soaring.
But the “window” weight loss method can help you ERASE that dangerous belly fat…. for good.
Best of all, this diet is SO easy to follow it can quickly become a way of life.
In fact, it’s something I do myself.
Imagine a diet that doesn’t police WHAT you eat. One that doesn’t even focus on how MUCH you have on your plate. And yet, somehow, it still works like a charm.
Sound like a fantasy?
Well, it can be your new reality when you practice intermittent fasting. Because this “window” trick is all about when you eat… and when you don’t.
There are various forms of intermittent fasting, but all of them involve the same basic principle: Go for a period of time without eating.
I follow the 8:16 method myself. I eat for 8 hours a day, and I don’t eat for the other 16.
Some people choose to go one or two entire days per week without eating.
Regardless of how you choose to do it, the benefits of intermittent fasting are clear. And that list is getting longer every day.
One review of multiple studies found that people who followed intermittent fasting lost 3-8 percent of their body fat over 3-24 weeks.
Even better? It specifically helps you lose belly fat – a key driver of all the diseases of aging.
But, in addition to helping you shed this deadly fat, intermittent fasting has four other incredible health benefits.
#1 Lowers Your Diabetes Risk
One study showed that when overweight people followed intermittent fasting, it helped them lose weight and reduced their risk of diabetes. In fact, evidence shows that it can reduce insulin resistance, lower blood sugar levels, and reduce insulin levels by as much as 31%.
#2 Improves Your Heart Health
Studies show that intermittent fasting leads to lower blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol and triglyceride levels – all factors that, when unmanaged, can increase your risk of heart disease.
#3 Reduces Your Cancer Risk
Numerous animal studies have shown that dietary restriction reduces the risk of cancer. This could be due to many factors, including its ability to reduce inflammation, weight, and insulin levels – all of which raise your cancer risk.
#4 Boosts Your Brain
Studies show that intermittent fasting improves memory and learning. And it’s been linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and stroke. This is likely a result of its ability to reduce inflammation in the brain, which is a risk factor for neurological diseases.
If you need help getting started with intermittent fasting, download the Zero: Fasting & Health Tracker app to your smartphone. It can help you keep track of your fasting window.
P.S. Recent research has uncovered a surprising intermittent fasting benefit. And it could come in handy as we head into the winter months when COVID-19 infections are expected to rise. I’ve got the details right here.
