Sportfasting is a proven way to get your body to make an effective switch from burning sugar to burning fat. Sportfasting gives you:
- more energy;
- weight loss;
- more fitness.
Sportfasting is a smart application of the popular intermittent fasting.
What is intermittent fasting?
The special thing about intermittent (periodic) fasting is that it is not a diet. It does not prescribe what you eat but when you eat. You vast within certain times of the day and you eat within certain times of the day. Many variations are possible of classifying the fasting or eating moments during the day or during the week. The period in which you fast is always longer than the period in which you eat.
Intermittent fasting has a positive effect on the health of your body and brain, you can lose weight and it can even help you live longer!
Many positive health effects of intermittent fasting are due to the increased production of human growth hormone and an improvement in insulin sensitivity.
- With breakfast your metabolism is started. If you don’t eat breakfast, it will be difficult to lose weight.
- To prevent your metabolism from slowing down, you should eat 5 to 6 small meals a day.
- If you do not eat, your body burns proteins and you lose muscle mass.
- If you have not eaten for a longer period, you cannot exercise.
Science has shown that this is largely incorrect and outdated. Point 4 in particular is incorrect. Exercising is a good addition to intermittent fasting.
For this reason, Personal Performance Training offers Sportfasting (Fittergy). In this program intermittent fasting is combined with training.
