Join me for a fasting challenge...!
Welcome to GreenNote Fitness Reflections.
Each month I share with you what I’m doing for longevity - to live my life fully with joy while serving others. We will deep-dive into optimizing brain function and mitochondrial health while maintaining strength and balance of body, mind, and spirit.
Happy new year! Are you ready for a reset? Although I have been intermittent fasting for five years, I always like to turn it up a notch. This new year won’t be any different except I hope that you will be joining me and 20,000 other people in a 5-day fasting challenge!
There are a host of benefits that fasting can provide. What better way to understand the many different types of fasting, which one is right for you, exactly how to do it and all with the support of experts and a community of thousands of other people looking to improve their health also.
I am hopeful that if you are reading this newsletter, you are in good health. Or maybe you are looking to improve or maintain your level of fitness and wellness. Many people are not healthy. The pandemic may be hitting them or someone that they know especially hard.
Eating more junk food, exercising less, more anxious, and getting less sleep is what a global study has confirmed - read this article from the New York Times, December 10, 2020, "Yes, Many of us are Stress-eating and Gaining Weight in the Pandemic”
Maybe this is you or maybe someone in your family. Ready to turn that around? Perhaps you have actually improved your health during this pandemic and want to take it to the next level. Then how about a Fasting Challenge?
If you have been reading GreenNote Fitness newsletters, then you are in-the-know of my consistent practice of intermittent fasting for the past 5 years. Here are a few refreshers and resources on intermittent fasting:
Before getting to the details on the challenge, I would like to point out that fasting has been clinically proven to reverse insulin resistance We can credit Dr. Jason Fung and his clinic for their work which you can read about here
I would also encourage you to watch him in this video where he discusses A New Paradigm of Insulin Resistance
Fasting has a wide range of health benefits, such as:
Healthy relationship with food
Longevity and Disease Prevention
