With Intermittent Fasting, you will burn more fat and lose weight even if you eat the same amount of calories as before. This can be explained by the changes in the hormone balance and the improving insulin sensitivity. Important hormones that play a role in Intermittent Fasting are:
- Human growth hormone
Hormone 1: The Human Growth Hormone
By fasting, human growth hormone can increase by 500%(1).
According to another study, human growth hormone can increase by as much as 2000% in men and 1300% in women when fasting for 24 hours or longer (2).
Human growth hormone promotes body fat loss (3).
