December 2016 ZornFast WAS December 15 – December 18 @BrendaZorn
I fast to target visceral fat (the fat inside our belly on our internal organs such as on our liver and pancreas). I also fast to promote autophagy (recycling of cells) and the release of HGH ( human growth hormone) for muscle growth.
Fasting can help break stalls and in general cause a much needed reset. I follow the literature and blog of Dr. Jason Fung, considered the best in the ketogenic fasting world.
This is the 11th month I have done a fast.
You can start/stop whenever you’d like. I like to start when my IF window closes at 8 pm and break the fast when my IF window normally opens at 4 pm. You can also choose the type of fast you want to do. I practice a “water fast” which means I drink water, coffee, and tea with no sweetener or cream. I also take supplements daily such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and a multivitamin.
During the fast we’ll meet back in here for ideas, support, and encouragement. Good luck!
