Among the many benefits ofintermittent fasting (IF) is its ability to drastically reduce belly fat. The reason is simple: IF has been shown to help optimize your hormones for optimal fat burn. 

This increased burn and subsequent fat loss is why somany BodyRockers have switched to IF as a lifestyle, not a diet. With the help of Sean’sFast & Furiously Fit Sweatflix series, which features short and sweaty 23 minute workouts perfect for people who are fasting, as well as the companionebook(complete with IF science, tips and recipes), our #FitFam is dropping fat, gaining muscle and getting in fierce shape, fast.

And those #abgoals being crushed? That’s just icing on the cake. (Did we mention you can eat cake, and just about anything you want, when you IF? Seriously, learn more about the benefits of intermittent fastinghere.)

Let’s get to how intermittent fasting reduces belly fat. 

Benefits of Intermittent Fasting: 3 Ways Intermittent Fasting Blasts Belly Flat

Insulin + IF 

Intermittent fasting helpsregulate insulin response. Insulin encourages the storage of energy. When we eat, our insulin levels increase and fat is held in our fat cells as our body uses the glucose in the bloodstream. During this stage of insulin influx, fat cannot leave the cells. However, when you fast, you lower insulin, thereby increasing the rate of fat breakdown, also called lipolysis. 


Muscle + IF

IF helps youbuild more muscle, which will in turn blast more fat from everywhere in your body--including your belly. Thank the fact that IF boosts human growth hormone by up to five times. In addition to further encouraging the fat burning process, an increased level of human growth hormone will support major muscle gains. More so than with traditional eating patterns.

IF + Your Metabolic Switch

New studiesreveal how IF can flip your metabolic switching, allowing your body to more adeptly shift metabolism from fat storage to fat burning via fatty acid oxidation and fatty-acid derived ketones, which also serves to preserve muscle mass and function.
