You are being invited to take up a challenge – to fast for 24hours!
This is to increase awareness of the problems caused by Insulin Resistance and Chronic Stress.
Mr P is an expert at fasting – let him guide you with all aspects of this fasting challenge.
Before you fast please consult your Doctor, especially if you have diabetes, are pregnant or are breastfeeding, or of you are elderly or a child under 16.
“If you are planning to join Mr P, or have completed a fast and want to further help the cause – then please copy the link below into your text box, whats app, or social media post – let people know you are doing the fast (or have done it) and paste this link to the end of your message – thank you” – https://www.besuper.ltd/overcome-insulin-resistance/
Insulin resistance (IR) occurs when cells fail to respond efficiently to a request for more insulin – this request is caused by a need to convert sugary food to energy. Without insulin sugar cannot be used for energy.
What does Mr P mean by fasting?
Fasting means to go without food (to drink only water and consume minimal calories through food) – but it does not mean to go un-nurished (this is called malnutrition and leads to starvation).
Fasting is not starving, think of it more as time restricted eating, and it allows your body to relax and start to de-stress. During a fast, your body will still get energy and nutrients from your fat stores. (Unless you are below approx 5% body fat – at which point it will remetabolise your damaged/toxic cells into protein and then consume them).
Example of time restricted eating:
If you don’t eat from 7.00pm at night until 7.00am the following morning you will have fasted for 12 hours. If you then eat we refer to it as ‘breakfast – breaking the fast’.
If you further ‘delay eating’ until 12.00am (lunch time) you will have fasted for 16 hours – you will then activate a healthy natural process called autophagy. However, as soon as you eat you stop it – think about this for a moment
For most people; because they ARE ALREADY insulin resistant to a certain extent; then during this 12 – 16 hour period, they may have withdrawl symptoms from sugar (just like an alcoholic craves alcohol). This unpleasant feeling normally lasts 1 to 3 days, after which you do not feel hungry – and your body gets all its energy and nutrients from your fat stores and ketone s8gnalling molecules. If you are not fat it gets all the energy it needs from breaking down your toxins and degenerative cells – WOW another benefit of autophagy.
Your challenge during this fast, will be to overcome any withdrawl symptoms from sugar. The more you struggle with this, then the more this indicates how insulin resistant you are (meaning how reliant you are on sugary foods) – and the more you will benefit from continuing!
Mr P does not suggest you fast for longer than you feel comfortable or have the will power to endure – this is supposed to be a fun challenge that you may learn from. However, there does exist a ‘therapeutic period’ where ketones are produced and autophagy is optimised. During this period your hunger and other withdrawal symptoms diminish, and you can experience increased muscle growth, increase BDNF (Brain Derived Neuro Factor) and overcome, reverse and prevent most illness (this is normally around 72 hours or 3 days) – Mr P provides testing for this on himself and for others. Once this stage is reached you can prolong it by eating the right kind of foods. This is the basis of LiCrON!
According to wikipedia Scottish man Angus Barbieri fasted for 382 days, from June 1965 to July 1966. He lived on tea, coffee, soda water, and vitamins while living at home in Tayport, Scotland, and frequently visited Maryfield Hospital for medical evaluation. He lost 276 pounds (125 kg) and set a record for the length of a fast.
Mr P enjoys the social aspect of food and drink too much to fast for longer than his own fasting regime.
Why does Mr P want you to fast?
Mr P does not have a large social media engagement (and does not seek one) – he welcomes your support and help. When you undertake a fast and promote the reasons why, by linking back to this page – then more people will be educated and saved – including you!
