Beneficial Things That Happen to Your Body When You Fast

Nowadays, intermittent fasting is gaining a lot of popularity when it comes to losing weight. However, have you ever considered as to what happens when you fast? Do not worry as we have already taken care of this information for you.

No matter for what religious or dietary reason you fast, here is what happens to your body.

Sugar breakdown

The first few hours of the fasting are basically normal.  The body is going through the normal process of breaking down sugar into glucose form to storage as a reservoir for energy. 25 percent of this glucose is transmitted to brain functions while the rest is delivered to the red blood cells and muscles to work normally.

Ketosis

After 5 to 6 hours of the fasting, the body reaches the stage of Ketosis; a metabolic state in which the energy levels in a person’s body is maintained via ketone bodies in a person’s bloodstream. This process is also the one in which fat is broken down because the fat results into ketone bodies.

This is the stage in which the weight loss truly happens and is best for the people who are looking to lose weight. The stage can also be achieved via Ketogenic Diet that includes high fat and low carb diet.

Cholesterol and uric acid clean-up

During the stage of Ketosis, many other functions also start to take place and one is the bodily detoxification by cholesterol and uric acid. The cholesterol and uric acid are transferred into the bloodstream that starts to detoxify the body.

Many people during his stage suffer from following symptoms.

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rash
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint aches

Near the end of this stage, the pain gradually decreases while the blood pressure drops down.

Resting of the digestive system
