AUTOPHAGY FASTING- DAY 2
How's everyone doing? I love all the posts, questions, and support you are posting here. That's the power of doing this with a group!
So yesterday I posted about how the length of your fast will stimulate different responses in your body.
Today let's talk about fat. Why fat first?
When you eat carbs & protein it spikes your blood sugar. The more you spike your blood sugar the more you signal to the body to release insulin.
Once your cells sense the presence of insulin, they stop the autophagy process.
It's a brilliant, yet simple way to extend your period of autophagy.
Fat will have a very little insulin response because it doesn't spike your blood sugar.
Today I want you to do a test so you can see how fat effects you.
Before you break your fast with fat, do a blood sugar & ketone reading. Then eat your fat meal. Then an hour later do another blood sugar/ketone reading.
Post your results here of those two readings. Also be sure to mention what food/drink you broke your fast with.
Many of you will see that your blood sugar will stay the same or even go down with fat. You also may notice that it won't pull you out of ketosis.
Some of you may not get that result.
But let's see what happens! Post your results here and tonight on my FB Live I will talk about what your numbers mean.
And one last trick...
For those of you who were hungry yesterday, eat more fat. It turns off the hunger hormone ghrelin and your brain will stop telling you to eat.
Hope that helps!
