1st phase of intermittent fasting in the first 3 hours

Your body starts the digestion process immediately after food intake. Ingested carbohydrates are being processed and released into the bloodstream as glucose. This increases the blood glucose level. As a result your blood sugar level rises. This in turn causes your body to start producing insulin. This hormone has two important functions first it stimulates the absorption of blood sugar into the tissue for quick supply of energy immediately after eating. Secondly it’s stores energy usually the body does not need all the energy that is being released through excessive consumption of carbohydrates or sugar. For this reason insulin stimulates the conversion of glucose into the storage form glycogen. Glycogen is stored in your liver and muscles only to be released when energy is needed again once the glycogen stores are full the excess glycogen is stored in your fatty tissue in the form of fat

Tomorrow’s topic will be on what happens to the body in the next nine hours of intermittent fasting stay tuned :sunglasses:


Thanks for the info brother. I do intermittent fasting with an 8 or 9 hour feeding window. It just works for me. Curious as to the actual mechanism of action.


Nice post! I’m going to enjoy learning from your thread. Thank you! :+1:

Great post. I tried 16-8 Intermittent Fasting for a while, kind of like Keto though, it was not for me… I struggled to get my calories in in a day, and by the end of my 8 hours I wanted to eat everything in sight


4th phase Fat Burning

Begins 11 hours after your last meal

The understanding energy needs of your body are taking their toll. Even the energy reserves from the previously started glycogen are soon exhausted. Now it’s time to fall back on a larger resource: your fat Reserves. The average calorie supply of an adult person in the form of fat reserves amounts to about 80000 calories.
In order to tap into these reserves your body starts producing fat burning hormones. An impressive six hormones listed below are involved in the vital mechanism these hormones perform more or less the same function of fat metabolism
Growth hormone human growth hormone otherwise known as HGH
Igf-1 insulin growth factor, glucagon, testosterone, adrenaline, T3 triiodothyronine


5th phase Ketosis
Begins 12 to 16 hours after your last meal

After the fat metabolizing hormones has to work and providing your body with new energy something interesting happens. Ketones are produced in the liver as a byproduct of fat burning. This process begins 12 to 16 hours after your last meal and increases in intensity depending on how long you fast
Ketones are fatty acid molecules that are formed when fat cells are broken down. They are known to provide energy to the heart brain and vital organs. Ketones activate your nerve cells strengthen intellectual capacity and develop new cells from your brain stem cells. They are the reason why you may feel particularly concentrated in productive during the fasting period.

Here’s a tip there really can be too much of a good thing. Staying in the fasted. For too long can the gate the positive effects of intermittent fasting and lead to burn out. For optimal results I recommend fasting for 16 hours and an occasional longer challenge remember that the body should work for you so you should listen to your body.

Tune in tomorrow Phase 6


Last phase of fasting


Begins 14 to 18 hours after your last meal

AUTOPHAGY is a process kick-started by a longer fast and fat burning it comes into play after 14 to 18 hours of fasting an interesting word with an even more fascinating function it is translated from the ancient Greek meaning to consume oneself this is exactly what happens during this phase.

Your cells begin to process themselves. Old cell components and so-called misfolded proteins are recycled during this phase not only are they recycled but they are completely renewed. Your body undergoes a big clean out or clear out.

This not only makes your cells more efficient it also prolongs the life of your cells and with that your own. There really can be too much of a good thing staying in the pasture. For too long can the negate the effects of intermittent fasting and lead to burn out.

For optimal results i recommend fasting for 16 hours and an occasional longer challenge remember that fasting should work for you so be sure to listen to your body. This concludes the phases of intermittent fasting of this segment thank you for reading a long I hope all of you much help and I hope this works out in your favor thank you
