Eat less!

Less is more for your wellbeing

The principle of eating less when recovering from an illness has been around for centuries as calorific restriction and fasting have been used to help people re-kindle internal health-promoting mechanisms. 

Over the last few decades, a general agreement has been emerging that both limiting the overall food intake on some days of the week (calorific restriction, also known as ‘intermittent fasting’) or applying restricted feeding for a period of time between meals overnight, benefits the human body in many ways. 

Intermittent fasting can be beneficial to your health

Improving longevity and prevention of accelerated ageing, metabolic enhancement, hormonal balancing, obesity and cancer prevention as well as many diseases are only a few mentioned by research which is vast on this subject. 

Early time-restricted feeding increases insulin sensitivity, lowers blood pressure, lowers oxidative stress as well as the desire to eat in the evening. 

Moreover, intermittent fasting has been shown to improve health even in the absence of weight loss so it is definitely worth a try by not only those who are looking for a better-shaped body!
