The use of fats from your fat cells and the key tones produced from those fat cells so an a person that eats breakfast lunch and dinner and doesn't get much exercise. Every time they eat their replenishing the glucose stores in the liver and they may never tap-in to the fat at stores and therefore their kitone levels will remain low because metabolic switch hasn't occurred it typically takes at least ten hours to deplete the glucose in the liver so if a person needs breakfast lunch and dinner and then has a snack around eight or nine o'clock they may get up any breakfast and have not depleted. They energy in their liver and have now switched to using fat. Within event fasting the approaches that have been used in experimental studies. Both in animals him. Humans are as follows. One is called daily time restricted. Eating where the time window. The law needs compressed into says six to eight hour time period. So that means the person would be fasting for sixteen eighteen hours which is sufficient time for those metabolic switch to have occurred and scientists think they the data that this metabolic switching is important for health benefits of intermittent fasting but also maybe even a exercise in some instances so daily time restricted. Eating is one approach can result in daily metabolic switching daily elevation in key tones. So for example. If a person's skips breakfast italian food between noon and six pm and if they were to major their key towns they'll find that in the morning the start to be elevated if they wake up and go for a run in the morning there are already at in the metabolic switch has already occurred so they can actually enhance the effect of the fast thing in terms of allegation of key tones and we think in terms of beneficial effects on the brain cutter vascular system perhaps even physical performance which is an area that being studied. Now with intermittent fasting. There's very strong evidence that compared to three meals a day plus snacks. Intermittent fasting is beneficial for the heart. The brain glucose regulation but it's not completely clear yet whether it's beneficial for athletic performance. There's a lot of interest in that. Okay so let's get back to intermittent fasting eating patterns another intermittent fasting eating pattern as one. It's now called five to intermittent fasting and this is where they individual two days a week. They'll only eat one moderate sized meal of say six hundred calories those days and the other five days they normally so in that case five to intermittent fasting the person will have the metabolic switching occuring two days a week but not the other flaws in fact there was this fact to intermittent fasting in a sense of kind of triggered the popularization of intermittent fasting. And let's take a few minutes to kind of give a heart historical perspective way down allowed to work in the nineteen nineties and early two thousand showing that intermittent fasting was beneficial for the brains of animals and we can talk about that some details on that and then we'd also published some oregon. Intermittent fasting reducing resting heart rate and blood pressure and having anti-inflammatory fax and then i was approached by a number of clinical investigators..
