One of the most practical and useful applications of TRF is in the fight against obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Two of the main factors that contribute to weight gain and the onset of T2D are blood sugar and insulin levels. TRF is a direct combatant against these and helps to balance out these factors to more healthy levels, which in turn sees a drop in body fat and overall a better body composition. That means less fat, more muscle, and a healthier body top to bottom.
It's not even because you are eating less! In fact, you can be eating the exact same amount of food each day, and still get positive results, it is just WHEN you eat that changes and shows results.
Another reason TRF is so effective at maintaining a good weight is due to its effects on your gut health. By improving the types and amounts of good bacteria in the gut, you improve your ability to digest and keep a good level of health. Your bacteria want you to be healthy, but you need to take care of them first. It's a partnership, your bacteria are your best friends when it comes to your health and wellbeing.
TRF provides the time away from food to let the populations of bacteria that are beneficial to you grow and take up more real estate in your gut. This means more good bacteria and less bad, simply by changing the timing of your eating. It's like the best gut health support you can get, but it's free!
Hot tip: Staying hydrated will make any cravings much less pronounced.
Benefit: According to studies, participants reported more overall energy, especially in the mornings.
Did you know: You actually get stronger and fitter when using TRF as a lifestyle component, as your body has more time to improve your cells, instead of spending resources on digestion.
