Take A Look At This Theory part1


Not eating at all is different from fasting

Research in fact has demonstrated that with up to 72 hours of fasting, the metabolism will not slow down. (Macdonald IA, Webber J, 1995), and instead it slightly improves the metabolism. Yes! That’s what I said! It will increase! (It is after the 72-hour period that will cause it to decrease).

This means that short-term fasting by its self will not lower your metabolism. As long as you do not fast without eating at all for a long period of time you will be fine and it will increase your metabolism.

It is true that in the long run, there is a higher risk for loss of muscle mass, but if fasting is done correctly and not for an extended period of time you will not lose muscle tissue. Your body’s tendency in fact is to maintain and retain muscle. There are several different hormonal signals that cause you retain muscle and increase your metabolism.

Growth hormone (GH) is one of the hormones involved in lipolysis that increases with fasting. HGH has a "muscle saving" property as well and most of the studies demonstrated that through fasting, people do not lose muscle mass in an environment of elevated HGH.

In one study (Norrelund H et al, 2001) a test group underwent 40 hoursin a state of starving by eating a low calorie diet /nutrition demonstrated that their bodies began to deteriorate and decline in health.

You can starve by eating 6 times a day if your calorie intake is too low.

(Try eating only one or two crackers every 2 hours 6 times a day. Hungry, are you not?)It has nothing to do with the frequency of your meals, justthe total calories you take in for longer periods of time (in terms of days, or weeks).

So if you miss a few hours between meals, it’s still scary when you think you will be sick if you don’t eat, or think that because you are unhealthy orjust because of mental pressure you cannot resist eating?

Your metabolism will drop and then you’ll get even fatter! This is another fear.

And let’s not forget the myth that says eating more frequently will speed up your metabolism.

It's about the total calorie intake, and how long you go without food, not meal frequency.EATING IS EATING. THE IMPORTANT THING IS THE NUMBER OF CALORIES YOU CONSUME, NOT WHEN YOU EAT OR WHAT YOU EAT! (I don’t get into the debate about eating healthy or not. It’s the amount of calories that’s important.)

Simply,calories are calories, regardless of their form they are still just calories. If you eat30 pieces of apple the calories are higher than the calories in fried rice with egg.
