The amazing effects of Fasting!

During fasting our energy storage process reverses, insulin falls, and that decline is a signal that the body should start using some of the stored food energy to power the body. Dr. George Cahill described the 5 stages between eating and prolonged starvation/fasting as follows; 1st Stage The first few hours after you have eaten; Insulin is high and you still mostly drawn from the glucose you have eaten. All the tissue of the body can use glucose You still store food energy as glycogen, excess is stored as body fat. 2nd Stage 4 to 16 hours after eating; Exogenous glucose is no longer available as energy You start to rely on body stores The most readily available source of energy is glycogen
