Fasting should not always be associated with religious beliefs. And it shouldn’t be observed to lose weight. Fasting is a great way to flush out unwanted toxins from your body. Here are 11 benefits of how fasting can add a decade to your life…
1. Fasting compels your body to stop using glucose as a fuel to burn fat
Glucose is not considered as a good fuel to burn fat. When you stop providing glucose to your body, the cells in your body become more swift and the fat burning process starts at a faster pace.
2. Fasting normalises insulin and leptin sensitivity
Leptin is a hormone that is secreted by fat cells. Consuming less calories on a regular basis can lower sensitivity to leptin, which leads to fat loss.
