FastingFuelHQ’s new report was written for university students who wish to learn more about the potential benefits of intermittent fasting and the ways it can affect focus and energy levels while studying.
As intermittent fasting becomes increasingly popular as a method to improve overall health and energy levels, the report from FastingFuelHQ outlines some current academic studies in this growing area of interest, while also offering practical tips and techniques for students who wish to try intermittent fasting for themselves.
Recent studies published in Frontiers in Neuroendocrinology and PLOS One show that intermittent fasting has a positive effect on cognition and overall brain function, explains FastingFuelHQ. “Intermittent fasting ignites the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), a superpower protein that enhances learning, memory, and cognitive performance,” says John Dean, founder of FastingFuelHQ. “Intermittent fasting helps you absorb information like a sponge, master complex subjects effortlessly, and retain knowledge with ease.”
The report includes links to several academic papers while outlining some of the bio-mechanical processes behind intermittent fasting, such as the way in which the body is able to use ketones for fuel during periods of reduced food intake, thus producing more focus and higher levels of energy.
FastingFuelHQ also has a guide which helps to align an intermittent fasting protocol with a busy student lifestyle, including an explanation of different fasting windows, such as the 16/8 method or Eat-Stop-Eat approach, alongside a discussion of the respective benefits and drawbacks for each plan.
Additional tips and tools for successful fasting are included in the report – including the importance of hydration and good sleep, healthy ways to break a fast, and the benefits of pairing intermittent fasting with various mindfulness techniques, such as meditation.
Along with guides and reports on intermittent fasting for improved cognition, FastingFuelHQ also offers articles and advice on a range of related health and wellness topics, including recommended forms of exercise during a fast, keto liquids to consume while fasting, weight loss snack recipes, low-carb meal plans, and tips for losing a visceral potbelly.
