Diet Tip 7
Yesterday, we touched on Intermittent Fasting. Intermittent Fasting is basically going without food for an extended period of time in order to give your body an opportunity to perform other functions like healthy cell turnover and repair (which digesting food on a constant basis takes away from). As mentioned yesterday, it also boosts your HGH levels. The longer you fast, the higher your HGH levels will rise, as much as 2000%.
I am going to recommend a basic eating pattern where you have a 12 hour fasting window and a 12 hour eating window. The key is to start your 12 hour fasting window 3-4 hours before bedtime. This will allow any undigested food to finish metabolizing and thereby allow your HGH levels to peak during sleep (which is how and when you burn the most fat — crazy, huh?).
So for example, I usually go to bed by 9:30, so I would not eat anything after 6:30 and would not resume eating until the next morning at 6:30. Of course, water and non-calorie beverages are perfectly fine to ingest. Just nothing that will have to be digested and broken down by your stomach and intestines.
