Intermittent fasting

There is growing evidence that eating in a 6-hour period and fasting for 18 hours can cause a metabolic switch from glucose-based to ketone-based energy.
Resulting in increased stress tolerance, increased longevity and reduced incidence of diseases including cancer and obesity.

This study shows that humans are programmed to become physically stronger and healthier when we challenge our cells.

The response of cells to intermittent fasting are astounding! “Intermittent fasting elicits evolutionarily conserved, adaptive cellular responses that are integrated between and within organs in a way that improves glucose regulation, increases stress resistance and suppresses inflammation. During fasting, cells activate pathways that intrinsically improve defences against oxidative and metabolic stress and those that remove or repair damaged molecules.” Feel better and fitter, gain more resistance to disease and stop or even reverse some ageing processes!
