Changes the function of hormones, genes, and cells

When you don’t eat for a few time, several things happen to your body. For
example, your body will start initiating processes for cell repair and change some of your hormone levels, which makes stored body fat easier to access.
Other changes that can happen in the body include:

  • Insulin levels: Your insulin levels will drop by quite a bit, which makes it easier for the body to burn fat.
  • Human growth hormone: The blood levels of the growth hormone can greatly increase. Higher levels of this hormone can help build muscle and burn fat.
  • Cellular repair: The body can begin the necessary cellular repair processes, such as removing all the waste from cells.
  • Gene expression: Some beneficial changes occur in several genes that will help you to live longer and protect against disease.
