Restricting Your Eating Time Period To 8 Hours A Day Could Transform Your Body

December 16, 2015 3 min read

Intermittent fasting is getting a lot of buzz these days. It appears that it can do a host of wonderful things for your body, from improving memory and boosting energy to helping repair your bodily systems and increasing fat burning efficiency. When your body is functioning at its best, it is hard not to notice.   Many people spend a lot of time trying to find the 'right' diet. A diet that will fit their lifestyle and workout routine without leaving them feeling deprived. And for many of these people, it doesn't seem to matter what they try, they will fall off the wagon eventually, leading to an overwhelming sense of disappointment and guilt. If this sounds familiar, intermittent fasting may be the thing for you!

Want a sustainable diet? Just eat clean!

Eating clean and training dirty are the secrets to a cut physique. Our trainers at BodyRock.tv know this, and helped us develop a Meal Plan that will help you shed pound after pound in mere days. The secret is to eliminate processed foods and starchy carbs. The problem is that without pasta and bread, it can be hard to know what to cook! Let us show you how to make your diet work for you.

  Studies on the subject have found that intermittent fasting can:
  • Limit inflammation
  • Improve circulating glucose and lipid levels
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Improve metabolic efficiency and body composition, including significant reductions in body weight in obese individuals
  • Reduce LDL and total cholesterol levels
  • Help prevent type 2 diabetes, as well as slow its progression
  • Reverse type 2 diabetes
  • Improve pancreatic function
  • Improve insulin levels and insulin sensitivity
  • Reproduce some of the cardiovascular benefits associated with physical exercise
  • Protect against cardiovascular disease
  • Modulate levels of dangerous visceral fat
  The reason why intermittent fasting works seems to be because our bodies are designed to function in a climate of "feast or famine." If you think about our early ancestors, food was not always readily available for them. Their bodies were able to adapt to these stresses, and bounce back even stronger. While our lifestyles are dramatically different from those ancestors, our bodies are not!   If you think that fasting is something you want to try, here is a method that might work for you. Keep your eating confined to a 8-hour period like 12 p.m.-8 p.m. for example, and fast for the remaining 16 hours of the day. This will prevent the habit of late night eating by giving you a clear cut off time and prevent the stress of making breakfast in the morning. Since most of the fasting hours are spent sleeping, it will be less difficult. You can basically create any type of fasting schedule you want. You can fast for longer periods or you can move those eight hours to a different time frame. Take a look at your day and see what will work best for you. But you must remember to eat lots during your 8-hour period. Starving yourself on top of fasting will not do you any good. And if you are doing intense workouts during your fasting periods, make sure to have a scoop of protein powder or branched chain amino acids 5-10 minutes before your workout. This will prevent the increased breakdown of protein that can happen during a fasted workout. What are your feelings about intermittent fasting? Have you tried intermittent fasting? If so, do you think it's beneficial or does it make you feel hangry and ravenous? Source: Collective Evolution

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
