3 Biggest Mistakes That Keep You Fat and that make your Intermittent Fasting Fail.
Fasting is simple – it means not eating right,
but the thing is there are so many little variables that come into play that might trigger a metabolic response or might trigger an insulin response to the point then it can really kick us out of the fasting.
In order to understand how we can get the biggest benefits out of our fasting we need to take a look at what exactly the common mistakes that people make when they are fasting.
The number one common mistake is adding creamers in your coffee and tea.
It seems pretty logical that if you were going to be adding something that has calories like a creamer, milk, or almond milk to your coffee or especially sugar – that kind of makes it a food,
but most people don’t really want to look at it like that and I think they just turn that off in their brain, they think coffee is coffee if I add some creamer to it I’m not breaking a fast.
It’s a liquid.
that’s not the case
if you put creamer and I mean even a half a tablespoon of low-calorie almond milk that has about 12 calories –
you are breaking your fast.
Fasting is not eating and If you get calories that means you are eating, even If it comes as a liquid.
Anytime you are getting those calories you are stopping the process of burning stored energy and converting over to the process of using food energy.
We don’t want that.
Mistake # 2 is consuming branch chain amino acids.
And before you guys will stop this video and start typing in the comments that I am crazy.
Let me kick this one off with scientific research so that it makes sense and I have some credibility.
There was a 2011 study that took a large group of young men and they looked at a few things.
They were looking at amino acid levels
they were looking at energy substrate levels
and they were looking at insulin levels during a fast
so what they did is on day one they brought them all in and they took their baseline blood work.
Then, they made them fast and after that, they checked their fast blood work for the next seven hours.
They checked it every hour and determined where everything was fine.
Then five days later, they had these same men come back to do the exact same thing.
take a baseline test followed by seven subsequent tests,
except for this time they gave them five grams of branched-chain amino acids at the beginning of their fast,
well guess what the studies ended up showing that when they had the branched-chain amino acids they had increased levels of insulin,
They had these spikes throughout the day.
what that means is although it’s a small insulin spike,
branch chain amino acids do break a fast.
Since we’re talking about fasting it’s black and white and if you have insulin spiking you’re breaking your fast.
Is not getting enough minerals
Minerals such as salt, magnesium, potassium.
These are so critical when you’re fasting.
You see, minerals don’t really affect your metabolism in terms of caloric in caloric out.
We have to make sure that we’re still getting our minerals in especially if you’re consuming extra water during a fasting period.
And I do recommend drinking a lot of water during fasting because It will help your body to detox,
but this is such a big topic to dive into it right now.
So, let’s get back to our minerals.
Minerals are so critical for cellular function and for the electrical signals that our brain is sending throughout our bodies.
if we don’t have them we can’t function well.
but there’s an added benefit to making sure you get enough sodium and I highly recommend you add just like a quarter teaspoon or maybe a half a teaspoon to your water.
What this is gonna do is going to help nutrients and toxins flow in and out.
This will make sure that the cell can breathe
and can detoxify
