Everyone knows the benefits of fasting. Dieticians, scientists, religious scholars are advocating fasting as a way to help with physical, mental, and spiritual growth.
What is fasting? Fasting is the willful refrainment from eating and sometimes drinking. From a purely physiological context, "fasting" may refer to the metabolic status of a person who has not eaten overnight, or to the metabolic state achieved after complete digestion and absorption of a meal. Several metabolic adjustments occur during fasting. Some diagnostic tests are used to determine a fasting state. For example, a person is assumed to be fasting once 8–12 hours have elapsed since the last meal. Metabolic changes of the fasting state begin after absorption of a meal.
Renowned intermittent fasting advocate and doctor Dr. Jason Fung says fasting helps with insulin control, weight loss, lower the risk of diabetes, and most importantly overall good health.
How does collagen play a specific role in helping you enhance your fast? Lets take a look at what collagen is. Collagen is protein. Since collagen is a protein that is critical for health and wellness. Just by adding a scoop of collagen to your into your water, coffee or tea at the break of your fast, especially Hearthy collagen (unflavored & unsweetened variety), will help you get you an instant boost that will enhance recovery. At an average of 35 calories per 10g serving, collagen helps you to feel full and energized. Knowing that there is a minimum amount of food you can eat before the start of your fast and at the break of fast makes collagen an optimal choice.
After all, adding a scoop of easy-to-mix collagen to your daily nutrition supports a whole roster of health and beauty goals including maintaining strong bones, healthy tendons & cartilage, a healthy gut, shiny thick hair, strong nails, lean muscle, better flexibility, and last but not least, smooth, hydrated, youthful skin. Its a really a no-brainer.
Take collagen in the morning before your fast and at the break of fast. Here's why? Collagen will help you feel full and sustain you for rest of the day. Since collagen is keto, you can still get to ketosis during the fast, and best of all you won't feel bloated. Also, take collagen with water at the break of fast. It has no flavor and will dissolve completely. It helps with energy, feeling satiated, and curtails you from overeating.
