Nutritionist: Fasting Has Great Anti-Aging Health Benefits


Intermittent fasting accelerates weight loss and has powerful anti-aging health benefits, says nutritionist Yuri Elkaim.

In an Examiner interview, Elkaim revealed how intermittent fasting can be a useful tool to enhance weight loss. Yuri’s three-pronged weight-loss approach is simple: eat a mostly plant-based, gluten-free diet; incorporate intermittent fasting into your eating plan; and focus on interval circuit-training.

Yuri, the author of The All-Day Energy Diet, said contrary to what we’ve been told, we do not need to eat every three hours or risk having our metabolism slow down.

“When you’re eating five small meals a day, you’re constantly elevating your blood sugar, ” said Elkaim, who has a degree in kinesiology. “This isn’t ideal for someone who wants to lose weight.”

Research by the National Institute on Aging indicates that in addition to accelerating weight loss, intermittent fasting protects brain health, helps maintain lean muscle mass, improves insulin sensitivity, and boosts the release of anti-aging hormones.

Elkaim said the health benefits of intermittent fasting kick in after 18 hours, so you can start by eating dinner by 7 pm, for example, and then not eating again until 12 pm the next day. Because you spend eight hours of that time sleeping, this IF protocol is actually fairly easy to follow.

And if you’re fasting this Yom Kippur, imagine the benefits of fasting not 18, but 25 hours!

May you have a meaningful and easy day of atonement and a happy new year.
