Day 62 of 365 | The Carnivore Diet Experiment!
Hi friends: It’s day 62 of 365 of the carnivore diet experiment! As many of you know I am a supporter of intermittent fasting and omad.
If you are new to my blog, omad is one meal a day. It is the practice of eating only once.
Intermittent fasting — the practice of going without food for some period of time.
Intermittent fasting has many health benefits. It can help prevent heart disease, speed fat loss, and reverses aging. The sweet spot for intermittent fasting is autophagy.
One of my Instagram friends mentioned that intermittent fasting encourages autophagy which is a cellular self-cleansing process. The cellular self-cleansing process that breaks down and recycles damaged molecules and cellular organelles. Simply put autophagy is a detox process your body undergoes to clean out damaged cells and regenerate new ones. Isn’t that exciting?
Because many of our cells, like those in the brain, need to last a lifetime, the body developed a unique way of ridding itself of those faulty parts and defending itself naturally against disease.
When autophagy is activated, the aging process is slowed and the reduction of inflammation begins.
Why and when does autoghagy occur?
Autophagy is also achievable through intermittent fasting just as easily as longer fasts. Autophagy begins when liver glycogen is depleted, around 12-16 hours into a fast. The rate of autophagy peaks there, and then drops after about 2 days. So the body is doing a cleanup. It’s our body’s own recycling system.
Autophagy health benefits:
1) Make our bodies way more efficient and conservative with our energy.
2) It helps fight infections.
3) It decreases inflammation in the body.
5) Slow down the aging process.
4) Improves our muscles.
Many people that do the carnivore diet also do intermittent fasting by default. Because our meals are so satisfying and filling. We eat only one or two meals a day. Personally, I eat one meal and fast for 20 hours and have a 4-hour eating window. Another benefit of the carnivore diet is autophagy!
Today’s dinner was steak, eggs, and bacon!
