Intermittent fasting has become known in recent years as one of the most widely used strategies to support mental agility, focus, alertness and many other health benefits. START Wellness propels it!
Anyone who suffers from low levels of concentration understands the pain and distress that accompany the inability to focus and have a stable mind. When your mental health is unstable, everything can seem strange and wrong. Mental agility is one of the single most important requisites to optimal performance in the workplace and leading a sound and happy life. Skyrocket your mental agility on START Wellness app using its intermittent fasting and water program.
What is START Wellness app’s intermittent fasting regime?
On your START Wellness app, through Intermittent fasting, you simply do not eat for 14-16 hours (often called the fasting window) at a stretch and then consume all your meals and daily calorie intake within a 8-10 hour window (often called the feeding window). On your START Wellness app, fasting for 14-16 hours every day can help greatly increase your mental agility, focus and alertness. Researchers believe intermittent fasting benefits both the brain and the body in a lot of ways.
Intermittent fasting is said to have anti-ageing effects on the brain of humans. It could help boost the improvement of neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to form new neural connections) and fight inflammation, which is related to better memory, not to mention a better ability to adapt and retain broad data.
START Wellness app’s program using intermittent fasting and its water program are both considered types of “positive stressors,” as is exercise. They make the body adapt in ways that promote health, mental activeness and fight disease, such as reducing inflammation, enhancing detoxification, and enhancing cell renewal.
Researchers view on your START Wellness app’s lifestyle
In-depth studies have found that your START Wellness app’s lifestyle adoption of intermittent fasting can help support recovery from brain injury, a stroke and reduce the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. In addition to its ability to improve mental agility and health, your START Wellness app can also help with mood enhancement, weight loss/control, diabetes prevention, muscle growth, and much more. Researchers say that the human brain is the most energy-consuming organ in the human body, so it makes sense that your diet helps determine how you feel mentally and emotionally.
If you are low in essential nutrients (and even calories), you will not experience as good cognitive performance as you could. They now believe that a low calorie diet is a significant contributor to mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, not to mention that it can increase the risk of cognitive functions as we age. Hence on START Wellness app, we never recommend cutting your daily intake of food.
Some researchers say that having a daily tracking plan, like the A.I. driven START Wellness app on how to observe intermittent fasting (following all the rules) may be another tool to help ease depression and anxiety and may lead to better mental health. It is one of the very reasons I created the START Wellness app; to not only tell you how to practice this lifestyle, but also give you all the analytical data about your body composition to help you see for yourself how much your health is improving, rapidly.
What should you eat when you are not fasting
While your START Wellness app program of intermittent fasting itself offers better mental agility, focus, and alertness, it’s essential to focus on quality nutrition when you’re within the eating hour. When not fasting, focus on these food groups in your diet to support mental activeness:
- Fresh fruits and vegetables.
Eat plenty of variety of coloured fruits and vegetables like bell peppers, blueberries, sweet potatoes, dark leafy vegetables like spinach, carrots, tomatoes, etc. It’s the best way to get antioxidants and phytonutrients that reduce harmful inflammation throughout the body, including the brain. Eat 1 to 2 cups of fruit a day and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day.
- Eat foods that are very rich in vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 promotes energy and may even help reduce brain shrinkage. Good sources include grass-fed beef, eggs, wild fish, organ meats such as liver, and nutritional yeast.
- Eat foods that provide omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of depression, obesity, and hatred towards one’s self. Omega-3 fats and other healthy foods like nuts, seeds, and olive oil are essential for human mood and can be found mainly in foods like salmon, halibut, sardines, tuna and walnuts.
Our START Wellness app research tells us that when it comes to feeling better emotionally with mental agility, focus and alertness for years to come, we should aim for a balanced intermittent fasting routine. And the easiest, most balanced one to maintain is the 16:8 routine where you don’t eat for 14-16 hours and then eat all your meals in an 6-8 hour window. This has profound scientific benefits to your health holistically!
Your START Wellness app’s Intermittent fasting and water program reduces damage to brain cells by, for example, reducing inflammatory responses and removing waste from the brain. On the other hand, the combo of the START Wellness app intermittent fasting and water program also stimulates proper brain function, promotes cell repair, and contributes to the composition of new brain cells and the connections between them, making communication within the brain easier.
Intermittent fasting does not only increase the speed of neurogenesis, but it also increases the production of an essential protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Intermittent fasting has been shown to play a role in neuroplasticity and allows the brain to change and adapt continually. Overall your START Wellness app makes your mind more resistant to stress, more alert, more focused and more adaptable to change.
