Our bodies are in one of two states, fasted or fed. When you allow your body to enter into a fasted state several things happen. Your body initiates important cellular repair processes and changes hormone levels to make accessing stored fat easier.
Blood insulin levels drop significantly which allow our bodies to begin to dip into our stored fat as a fuel source. Human Growth Hormone levels increase. HGH helps preserve and protect muscle tissue and promote fat burning. The body also begins important cellular repair which normally would not occur during a fed state, such as removing harmful waste from cells.
Lower insulin levels, higher growth hormone levels and increased amounts of norepinephrine all help increase the breakdown of body fat and facilitate its use for fuel. We know that this combination helps our bodies increase it’s metabolic rate and burn calories more efficiently.
