Now that I'm home from Chicago's Hormone and Energy modules for the #instituteforfunctionalmedicine I'm able to reflect on how absolutely amazing it was. Fabulous doctors teaching the latest in medical and scientific research in a jam packed schedule. So much great information and biochemistry my head literally hurt. And somehow they still managed to practice what we preach. Organic, clean medeteranian/paleo meals and snacks while we continue to learn, meditation breaks, and early morning yoga classes on a skyscraper. That's my idea of fabulous! Looking forward to Denver!
Would you be surprised if I were to tell you that many doctors and nutritional experts don't eat first thing in the morning?? I hear you saying, But wait! I thought breakfast was the most important meal of the day! Today we are here to talk about a scientifically proven way to eat to improve your health. According to award winning researcher Dr. Valter Longo, Intermittent fasting (IF), the discipline of eating only within a certain window of each 24-hour period while fasting the rest, has been scientifically shown to boost the immune system, decrease risk of heart disease and cancer, improve blood sugar levels, aid in weight loss, enhance learning and memory, reduce depression and anxiety, increase motivation, increase neurogenesis (creation of new neurons in the brain), and improve the health and recovery of people with autoimmune diseases and chronic illness. Neuroscientist Mark Mattson's research also demonstrates how IF may have protective effects against neurodegeneration diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Fasting is a type of hormetic stress, an acute stress put upon the body short-term to gain long-term benefits, such as exercise or sauna use. While undergoing hormetic stressors your body is in an unhealthy catabolic state, meaning your body is breaking down. But it's the recovery (or re-feeding) phase immediately following these stresses that dramatically improves your health. Your body must rebuild itself stronger to support the stresses that could come your way. The saying, What doesn't kill you makes you stronger has never been so true! According to Dr. Longo's research team, the ideal time frame to fast utilizing IF is about 14-18 hours each day, ideally from an early dinner the night before to a late breakfast or lunch the following day. The most important meal of the day should be your FIRST meal of the day, hence the name break fast, but that meal need not happen first thing in the morning. What is of the utmost importance is the type of food you consume during this first meal or re-feeding phase. It should consists of healthy protein and fats, vegetables, and probiotics. #functionalmedicine #nourishyourbody #knowbetterdobetter
