Before I begin explaining the rationale behind how intermittent fasting has got anything to do with growing taller, let me explain what is intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting is a pattern of eating that alternates between periods of fasting (usually meaning consumption of water only) and non-fasting. Some people of certain cultural religious backgrounds do engage in some sort of intermittent fasting during certain period of the year or time. Some people believe that intermittent fasting has some beneficial health benefits, and can enhance longevity as calorie-restriction is proven to prolong lifespan. In fact, intermittent fasting is almost like a silver bullet against disease and aging. Basically, these groups of people would refrain from eating for almost a day, only consuming water.
So, your question would be. How does Intermittent Fasting help one to grow taller?
Firstly, intermittent fasting or skipping meals can help reduce brain insulin level. Insulin is a peptide hormone, produced by beta cells of the pancreas, and is central to regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. Insulin causes cells in the liver, skeletal muscles, and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood. Therefore with reduced insulin level, a person’s body have lesser fat, and this can aid the process of growth and development a lot more efficiently, which is necessary for growing taller.
Secondly, intermittent fasting can increase growth hormone production significantly! It is known and studied that people who ate only 2 big meals in a day, and fasted, tend to be healthier and stronger, and in some cases taller! For example.
The Maasai people of Africa generally eat two meals a day – in the morning and at night. The Masai are exceptionally tall people and some of the healthiest that Weston Price observed in his study of traditional peoples in the early 1930s.
Clearly, their bodies don’t lack nutrients. They eat plenty of food at meal time. They aren’t calorically or nutritionally deprived. They merely condense their intake between longer intervals.
Intermittent fasting does not significantly reduce calories. In fact, the object of intermittent fasting is not caloric restriction. Regular large, high nutrient meals satisfy a person’s nutritional needs and provide the building blocks needed to grow. Not only does fasting not stunt growth it increases growth hormone. An increase in growth hormone can actually boost a child’s height making them grow taller than they otherwise would.
Another reason for why intermittent fasting could actually be a good strategy to grow taller is that it helps in cell repair and waste elimination. During a grow taller program, through intense exercises and stretching, many muscle tear and tissue damaged is being done. Intermittent fasting will help the recovery period and help to ensure that the muscle and bones do grow well. Intermittent fasting also helps cleanse the body off toxins and ensures the body’s renewed revival state! Therefore, some people say that intermittent fasting is like a body cleansing period where your body will feel more rejuvenated and refreshed than ever before!
Some Orthodox Christians and Muslims engage in some form of fasting strategy, and they have found many benefits from doing so! For those of you who want to grow taller, you can always try this method! While it is hard at first to refrain yourself from eating the first time, always keep in mind your goal and put in the determination!
With that, we wish all of you the best of luck in your growing taller journey!
