Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

    Your body actually needs around 16 to 18 hours to actually start burning fat and start utilizing what you already ate. But if you're eating from the time you go to bed and as soon as you wake up, your body is going to keep going. 

Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie.I have so much to share about intermittent fasting, gaining holiday weight, metabolism, and things that I've learned at this event.

We learned from doctors like Dr. Ken Ford, who has done some incredible things throughout his entire life, between boards that have to do with health and NASA and the world. This man is a genius, and he's here talking about ketones because of what it does for people.

So unbelievable! I'm going to give you the Keto Mom version of a couple things that I've learned. I want to give you a couple highlights of intermittent fasting. Who intermittent fasts here? I know the power of intermittent fasting, but I didn't know all of the benefits. Intermittent fasting in general to me is not eating breakfast or simply not eating as much food.

Dr. Ryan Lowery and Dr. Jacob Wilson talked about why holidays make you fat and how to avoid it. Over the next couple of days I'm going to really hone in on this topic.

They said that from the ages of 25, 36 and 45, people gain a lot of fat. And 52% of the weight gain happens over the holidays from October until the beginning of the year. So think over the span of 90 days, people are ramping up for all the holidays, candy, sweets and parties. Most people would gain the most amount of their weight at the end of the year. Then by January, their mindset shifts and they restart, it's on and off.

What's causing people to gain fat?

I was like, "They're just eating sugar". They say the average person gains anywhere from 1, 2 or all the way up to 10 pounds over the holidays. The doctors talked about metabolism. Some people process food better and have a higher metabolism and their are those with a lower metabolism.


Most people are also not moving as much. They're sitting around the house, enjoying family and friends, but physically moving way less. So that was number one.
