HARD CORE WEIGHT LOSS
Fasting can be done for days or a portion of a day, known as intermittent fasting.
Fasting is without food, not a “juice fast,” that is something different.
Fasting is more than quantitative calorie restriction.
Fasting is quality control: the dead and weaker cells are broken down for energy for the stronger cells. Survival of the fittest. This is called autophagy. It’s self-eating.
Many things are healed and cleaned this way.
This also trains your body to go without food and not need snacks for blood sugar.
In autophagy you learn to burn fat as a steady supply of energy.
Water fasting is also an option that is not just an ultra-spiritual gesture: your body breaks down fat for hydrogen and combines it with oxygen to create water. Brilliant.
Fasting is best done after micro nutrient deficiencies are corrected so that basic cellular processes can be performed. It also helps to have sunlight and less toxic light exposure.
You also need to have a plan to keep the weight off, which is best learned before you fast.
Cold exposure is also a fast lane to weight loss.
Like fasting, it is more than a quantitative speeding up of calorie burning, but it triggers energy production that is well known for healing wound and recovering from athletic performance.
Cold tubs are the most popular method, but in cold climates being outside can be sufficient. That includes driving without heat, or a coat, or with the windows down.
Gradual adaptation is necessary here.
A shower is a good start but not be enough for best results.
You also have to be strong enough to not “catch cold” or get tight muscles that may create pain.
There is much written online about this. You don’t have to use any one exact method.
My preference is to save time and stacking activities like driving in the cold, not chilling in a tub unless it’s summer.
