Fasting Intermittent Fasting No Calorie Fasting Mekdar Ramadan


No Calorie Fasting NCF (as Ramadan Fasting does) shortens the time need for the onset of the metabolic switch – the point of negative energy balance at which liver glycogen stores are depleted and fatty acids are mobilized (typically beyond 12 hours after cessation of food intake).


No Calorie Fasting NCF  (or Intermittent Fasting IF) is a term used to describe a variety of eating patterns in which no or few calories are consumed for time periods that can range from 12 to 18 hours, on a recurring basis.

Emerging findings suggest the metabolic switch from glucose to fatty acid-derived ketones shifts metabolism from lipid/cholesterol synthesis and fat storage to mobilization of fat through fatty acid oxidation and fatty-acid derived ketones, which serve to preserve muscle mass and function. Thus, NCF regimens that induce the metabolic switch have the potential to improve body composition in overweight individuals.

 

Moreover, NCF regimens also optimize physiological function, enhance performance, and slow aging and disease processes.
