Amazing Research Actually Shows Fasting can help with Muscle Growth
Holy Cow Leonardo!
It turns out that your muscles won’t melt away when you fast as so many of the fake fitness experts and muscle heads would have you believe.
Actually, it’s quite the opposite.
Studies have found that when you’re fasting, your body goes through several spikes of growth hormone per day.
Whereas in normal North American eating patterns, you only have a spike in the morning and another one at night.
Growth hormone produced naturally is fantastic at helping us to maintain lean muscle mass (as well as helping us to burn body fat).
In fact, growth hormone increases exponentially by up to 2000-3000% at the 24-hour mark of fasting!!!!
One more for you: Short term fasting has been shown to increase Luteinizing Hormone (LH), which is the precursor to testosterone. And in a 56-hour fast it increased LH by 67% in obese men!!!
So, how does this benefit you?
➡️You can start to eat less often and simplify your life
➡️You can get all the benefits of fasting for health and fat loss
➡️And You can gain and maintain your muscle!
