4 Life changing Benefits Of Intermittent Fasting

 

2018-06-07 016071080880809231569..jpg

Intermittent fasting has become one of the most controversial concepts of discussion for anyone looking to shed weight. The idea has grown significantly over the past several years.

Everyone from the biggest celebrities, to George St-Pierre, a three-time former UFC Welterweight Champion practice intermittent fasting. To someone who is new to intermittent fasting, however, there may be a lot of information to take in, so it’s important to do ample research.

If you are intrigued by intermittent fasting and want to how it works, you first need to satisfy the question of what intermittent fasting can do for you. What can you get out of it? And what can you expect?

I personally practice intermittent fasting 2-3 times a week. Here are four benefits of intermittent fasting that I have discovered .

2018-08-09 125471635096005294212..jpg

1) Weight loss

One great benefit of intermittent fasting, is the significant weight lost without a calorie-restricted diet. Furthermore, it helps keep the weight off in the long term. Celebrities and fitness experts harp on intermittent fasting’s amazing transformational effects. From Wolverine himself, Mr. Hugh Jackman, to UFC legend Georges St-Pierre, different people from all over the world have detailed how intermittent fasting has changed their lives.

By adhering to a time-restricted eating schedule, intermittent fasting assists practitioners eat less calories without it feeling like you’re on a restrictive diet.

2) Reduces the risk of developing diabetes

As more and more people in the world are affected by diabetes, one of the best ways to combat this life threatening conditioning is through exercise and a healthy balanced diet.

Intermittent fasting is a great tool to help you fight against diabetes and reverse its effects overall. Recent studies have suggested intermittent fasting may also be able to stop diabetes in its tracks. Studies revealed that intermittent fasting harbors the production of new pancreatic cells which replace old dysfunctional ones, helps reduce insulin resistance which in turn keeps blood sugar levels under control.

3) Strong and healthy brain

Improved healthy brain function is one of the greatest benefits of intermittent fasting, helping to prevent and manage neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The act of resisting the temptation to eat during a fasting window is a mental challenge that causes the human brain to take preventative measures against various diseases.

In fact, most practitioners of intermittent fasting have raved about the challenge that it presents. After some time, the body makes personal adjustments to ones eating schedule, hence the constant hunger subsides which is why some switch things up and work with various methods of intermittent fasting.

4) The body burns fat

Our bodies have been trained to use sugar and carbohydrates as the primary source for energy. The unused calories from sugar and carbohydrates left in the system, gets stored as fat.

Intermittent fasting trains our bodies to use fat as energy and not sugar, as humans were designed to do in the early days of man. The human body was made to withstand long periods of fasting which leads the body expending energy from stored fat.

The fasting window buys our bodies time to deplete our glycogen stores, causing us to burn fat instead of sugar for energy. This state the body enters is known as Ketosis, or more popularly coined today as Keto. Ketones boost energy levels and decrease brain fog.

How to have the greatest 24 hours in Stockholm

Experience Stockholm in 24 hours

Upplev Stockholm i 24 timmar

Many of you have asked me: I am going to be in Stockholm for one day, what do you recommend me to do ? while there are plenty of beautiful places to visit and nice activities to do in Stockholm. I figured, I have to create – how to have an amazing 24 hours in Stockholm guide.

MĂ„nga av er har frĂ„gat mig: Jag ska vara i Stockholm för en dag, vad rekommenderar du mig att göra och se? Medan det finns gott om vackra stĂ€llen att besöka och trevliga aktiviteter att göra i Stockholm. Jag tĂ€nkte, jag mĂ„ste skapa – hur man fĂ„r en fantastisk 24 timmar i Stockholm guide.

Brunch – To get the most out of your day, start the day of with a great breakfast/brunch in the city centre, for that I recommend Greasy spoon located in Odenplan, which is also one of my favorite brunch places in Stockholm. Its a British/ American style breakfast/brunch spot, they offer weekly specials and the last time I was there, I had the Mexican special roasted vegetables topped with guacamole and 2 poached eggs served with spicy suace. When I’m craving something more sweet, I usually go for their home made French toasts served with nuts, berries topped of with mable syrup

Brunch – För en grym start pĂ„ dagen, börja dagen med att Ă€ta frukost / brunch i stan, för det rekommenderar jag Greasy spoon i Odenplan, som ocksĂ„ Ă€r en av mina favorit brunch platser i Stockholm. Det har inslag av brittisk / amerikansk brunch. De erbjuder veckovisa specialerbjudanden och sista gĂ„ngen jag var dĂ€r, hade jag mexikanska speciella rostade grönsaker toppade med guacamole och tvĂ„ poached Ă€gg som serveras med kryddig suace. NĂ€r jag har suget efter nĂ„got mer sött, brukar jag bestĂ€lla deras hemgjorda franska toasts som serveras med nötter, bĂ€r toppad med mable sirap.

From there you can take a lovely walk trough town heading towards (Slussen) continuing your journey by fetching a boat towards DjurgĂ„rden. Discover the island DjurgĂ„rden, beloved by both stockholmers and visitors. It is the home of many of the city’s museums and cultural attractions such as (Vasa Museum, Gröna Lund, The Abba museum and Skansen which is Europe’s biggest outdoor zoo to name a few).

DÀrefter kan du ta en hÀrlig promenad genom staden mot (Slussen) fortsÀtt din resa genom att Äka en bÄt mot DjurgÄrden. UpptÀck ön DjurgÄrden, Àlskad av bÄde stockholmare och besökare. Det Àr hemmet för mÄnga av stadens museer och kulturella sevÀrdheter som (Vasamuseet, Gröna Lund, Abba-museet och Skansen som Àr Europas största utomhus zoo för att nÀmna nÄgra).

Lunch – since you’re still in DjurgĂ„rden take a short walk to Josefina restaurant/Bar, they have amazing pizzas and if the weather is right, why not lounge at the poolside. Tired? Just take a nap at lounge area suited for relaxing, have a bevarage and put your feet up after all that walking and sightseeing.

Lunch – Om du fortfarande Ă€r i DjurgĂ„rden, ta en kort promenad till Josefina restaurang / Bar, de har fantastiska pizzor att vĂ€lja mellan och om vĂ€dret Ă€r rĂ€tt, varför inte chilla vid poolen. Trött? Ta bara en tupplur vid poolen som Ă€r lĂ€mpligt för avkoppling, bestĂ€ll nĂ„got att dricka och lĂ€gg upp dina fötter efter alla promenad och sevĂ€rdheter.

After your recovery, continue your adventure by catching the boat, this time get off at the stop called (Riddarholmen) here in (Kungsholmen) you can visit stockholms iconic Stadshus and meanwhile have a (Fika) coffee and something sweet for a bite right next to the water with a beautiful view over Stockholm.

Efter din ÄterhÀmtning, fortsÀtt ditt Àventyr genom att ta bÄten till Riddarholmen vÀl i (Kungsholmen) kan du besöka Stockholms ikoniska Stadshus och under tiden ta en fika precis intill vattnet med vacker utsikt över stockholm.

Dinner – From Riddarholmen catch the last boat of the day and get off at slussen, there you can take a short 10 min walk to Gamla Stan (Old Town) By now you have probably worked up an appetite and if you don’t want to look around for a place to dine, I highly recommend Mister French, a restaurant that specialises in French cuisine such seafood, fish, and steak and best of all, it has 1920 Great Gatsby vibe with stunning outdoor sea view over town.

Middag – FrĂ„n Riddarholmen kan du gĂ„ pĂ„ din sista bĂ„tresa för dagen och gĂ„ av i slussen, dĂ€r kan du ta en kort 10 minuters promenad till Gamla Stan. Jag antar att du Ă€r hungrig och om du inte vill leta efter ett stĂ€lle att Ă€ta pĂ„, sĂ„ rekommenderar jag starkt Mister French, en fransk restaurang med specialitet inom skaldjur, fisk och biff och bĂ€st av allt, stĂ€llet har 1920 tals Great Gatsby-vibe med fantastisk havsutsikt över staden.

Before the day comes to an end, have a walk around Gamla Stan, there are colourful historical buildings to walk through, stop by one the many ice cream shops and indulge your craving while you take it all in.

Innan dagen gÄr mot sitt slut, ta en promenad runt Gamla Stan, det finns fÀrgglada historiska byggnader att promenera igenom, stanna till i en av de mÄnga glassaffÀrerna och njut av en glass medans du tar in all historia och skönhet runt om.

6 must haves for new Dad’s

Hejsan & Hello!

Jag skrev ner en lista pÄ saker som jag tycker Àr nödvÀndiga att ha som en nybliven pappa. Jag hoppas att det hjÀlper dig som som just blivit en fförÀlder eller vÀntar barn.
Here’s a list I wrote on essential baby items I couldn’t live without as a father of three. I hope they are useful in navigating this new exciting life that you will embark on.

1.Bilstol En viktig pryl för din bebis som mÄste vara ordentligt fastsatt i en bilstol. SÀtet mÄste vara anpassat för ditt barn och mÄste fungera i din bil. Inte alla bilstolar hÄller samma kvalité, du kanske vill övervÀga en som har en bas som finns kvar i bilen med ett avtagbart sÀte för barnet som du enkelt kan bÀra runt. Hitta en som funkar för din familj.
1.Car Seat This is an essential item for your baby. Anytime you are in a car, the baby needs to be securely fastened in a car seat. The seat must be appropriately sized for your baby and must work in your car. Not all car seats are created equal. You may want to consider a seat that has a base that is left in the car with a detachable seat for the baby that you can easily carry around. But no baby can safely be without a car seat if you plan to move about in a car. Find one that suits you and your family.

2.Digital\Video kamera: NÀstan varje far och mÄnga mammor som jag kÀnner vill ha en bra digitalkamera för att spela in de viktiga ögonblicken i deras barns utveckling, eller bara för att skicka bilder av det sötaste barnen nÄgonsin. Att ha en bra digitalkamera med mycket lagringsutrymme eller plats för ett högkapacitets minneskort Àr en bra investering.
2.Digital/Video Camera: Just about every father and many mothers I know wants a good digital camera to record those vital moments in their baby’s development, or just to post pictures of the cutest baby ever. Having a good digital camera with a lot of storage space or room for a high capacity memory card is a great investment.

3.SkötvĂ€ska: En blöj vĂ€ska/ skötvĂ€ska gör att man enklare fĂ„r ordning pĂ„ allt bebisen behöver nĂ€r man Ă€r ute. Du kommer att bĂ€ra pĂ„ den en hel del. DĂ€rför valde jag en enkel bekvĂ€m men som inte “clashar” med min stil för mycket. Men som ocksĂ„ har utrymme för mina grejer, en bok eller en bĂ€rbar data.
3. Diaper Bag: A good quality diaper bag with all the important contents for the baby is an absolutely essential part of the baby’s kamera stuff. It will be the one item you will be seen carrying😊 therefore I chose a simple comfortable one that I can also fit my books and a laptop in.

4.Burp cloth – bib: En annan stor överraskning som en ny pappa var hur mycket vĂ„r baby spydde upp. Jag fick bytta t-shirt konstant. En hel del leverans av burpduk kommer behövas under dom första mĂ„naderna, som du enkelt hittar hos flesta babyförsĂ€ljning affĂ€rer. Ingen idea att klĂ€ upp sig utan en till hands, det lovar jag 😉
4.Burp Cloths: Another big surprise I had as a new father was how much our baby spit up. A ready supply of burp cloth is important for dads and babies which you can purchase in most baby supply stores. Don’t even bother getting dressed up, without one at hand.

Bilbarnstol

5.Barnvagn: Det Àr övervÀldigande som en nybliven pappa och det Àr lÀtt att kÀnna sig fast hemma med den nya bebisen. Det kommer inte som nÄgon överraskning att din rörlighet begrÀnsas. En barnvagn med kvalitet, och med justerande handtag sÄ du slipper böja över hela tiden, Àr ju ett mÄste. SÀrskilt om du Àr lÄng. Det var inte enkelt för mig att hitta en anpassad för lÀngre mÀnniskor, men den jag har fÄr duga.
5.Stroller: It is overwhelming experince to become father for the first time and its easy for a new dad to feel trapped at home with the new bor. It comes as no surprise that your mobility is effected . A good quality stroller, with handles long enough that you can walk without bending over all the time, is an important item. Particularly if you are on the tall side of the spectrum. And getting one that will serve you and your baby as she or he grows makes the relatively large investment a little easier to digest.

6.Rash-creme – Aprikosolja: Som tre barns pappa sĂ„ jag har jag sĂ€kerligen prövat mĂ„nga hudutslag krĂ€mer, salvor m.m. MĂ„nga av dem var inte helt dĂ„liga och gav en viss effekt mot utslaget och en aning förbĂ€ttring. Men nĂ€stan alla dem jag anvĂ€nde innehöll mĂ„nga ingredienser som irriterar huden och som inte Ă€r bra pĂ„ lĂ„ng sikt. Jag fick av min kusin Desse Apricotolja för nĂ„gra Ă„r sedan och det har varit en game-changer sedan dess. Denna produkt Ă€r inte bara bra mot irriterad och rodnad utan alla typer av skĂ€rningar. Det Ă€r en helande salva som kan anvĂ€ndas för att hydrera huden, motverka torra lĂ€ppar. Varje gĂ„ng jag har anvĂ€nt, sĂ„ har det alltid gett omedelbar resultat och förbĂ€ttring. Och det bĂ€sta av allt Ă€r att det Ă€r framkallat pĂ„ aprikosolja och det Ă€r helt naturligt.

6.Rash cream – Apricot oil: As a father of three children, it’s safe to say I have tried many rash lotion/creams/ balm. Many of them were not bad as far as soothing the rash and improving it. But almost all of the ones I used where made with a lot of ingredients that are not safe or good in the long run. I was given by my cousing Desse Apricot oil a couple of years ago and it has been a game changers ever since. This product is not only great for diaper rash but all types of cuts. It is a healing balm that can be used to hydrate the skin, cracked lips. Every time I have used when one of my kids had a rash, it gave instant results of improvement. And the best of all it’s made of apricot oil and its all natural.
