Intermittent Fasting For Better Muscle Growth & Weight Loss

 

Thomas here to break down how intermittent fasting actually helps you guys in actually building muscle, not just burning fat. You can have some pretty solid benefits when it comes down to putting on some good muscle too.

 

 

Let’s get right to it:
0:25 – 3 days into a fast, Human Growth Hormone levels increased by over 300% – after one week of fasting, they increased by 1,250% https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1274154/

 

0:41 – http://academic.oup.com/jcem/article/94/3/965/2596752

 

1:06 – Human growth hormone is a polypeptide that consists if a chain of 191 amino acids.

 

1:20 – Chondrocyte cells of our cartilage divide and multiply, which stimulates collagen synthesis in the skeletal muscle and tendons.

 

2:36 – Beta-hydroxybutyrate is one of the main molecules that helps your body produce energy in the absence of glucose.

 

3:16 – The presence of Beta-hydroxybutyrate increased muscle cell survival rate http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4212585/

 

3:53 – Myostatin is a myokine, a protein produced and released by myocytes that acts on the muscle cells autocrine function to inhibit myogenesis.

 

4:50 – Test subjects that were exposed to exogenous testosterone experienced a massive decrease in myostatin levels. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4026349/



 

5:26 – Fasting increases luteinizing hormone http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3119649
