FASTING Is Vital...... What happens to your body during the 12th hour to the 72nd HOUR?

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

By the 12th hour, your body enters the metabolic state know as the ketosis state, During this time, your body starts to break down and burn fat.

By the 18th hour, your body switches to fat-burning mode and are generating significant ketones..

By the 24th hour, your cells are increasingly recycling old components and breaking down load proteins linked to Alzheimer’s and other diseases. This is a process called autophagy. Autophagy is an important process for cellular and tissue rejuvenation – it removes damaged cells including bad proteins. When your cells can’t or don’t initiate autophagy, bad things happen, including neurodegenerative diseases.

By the 48th hour without calories or with very few calories, carbs or protein, your growth hormone level is up to five times as high as when you started your fast

By the 54th hour, your insulin has dropped to its lowest level point since you started fasting and your body is becoming increasingly insulin-sensitive.

By the 72nd hour, your body is breaking down old immune cells and generating new ones.

Fasting is free and it benefits you in more ways than NOT Eating Food.

Fasting frees your mind, body, soul, and spirit.

I speak on fasting on my podcast Very Wise Alternatives on Anchor and other major platforms.
