Fasting Is A Fancy Word For Starving Yourself

#fasting is one of the WORST things you can do for your metabolic health = overall health


do you skip #breakfast, #intermittentfast, eat a snack as lunch, stop eating after 8pm? these are all incredibly #stressful to your body.



your body deems hunger as danger so its response is to increase cortisol.


pretty much when blood sugar πŸ“‰ (which happens when you fast) cortisol πŸ“ˆ in order to try and maintain blood sugar levels.


why would we constantly call up #cortisol to regulate our blood sugar when eating balanced meals does that for us???


with high cortisol things like estrogen start to rise, progesterone starts to decrease, your thyroid becomes suppressed, you become more insulin resistant, you develop fatty liver and you stop being able to digest your food.


welcome chronic #hormone and #gut imbalances.


when blood sugar is stable, cortisol comes down. so let’s stop riding that blood sugar rollercoaster and eat 3-6 balanced meals regularly throughout the day (carb, fat, fibre & protein).


NO MORE FASTING!!!


other helpful blood sugar stabilizing tips to keep your body happy + stress free:

1. pair carbs & protein together or with a healthy fat


2. have a #balanced bed time snack to blunt cortisol response and stabilize blood sugar while you sleep


3. eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking & drink coffee (paired with a carb + protein or fat) after!

Best,
