Intermittent Fasting

What's the difference between starving and fasting?

Fasting is when you deplete the glycogen reserves (stored sugar in the liver and the muscles) while in starvation, you already depleted your glycogen, and not you are depleting the fat reserves, the muscles and the organs are breaking down and you are using that as fuel.

Fasting is healthy because it is where you repair and starving is where you break your body down and also deplete all the nutrients.

Fasting:

• Depleting Glycogen Reserves

• Running on Fat

• No Hunger

• Feels Good

Starvation:

• Depleting Fat Reserves

• Running on Muscle and Organs

• Intense Hunger

• Feels Bad
