Secret Formula for Natural Weight Loss

Growth Hormone - Your Body’s Secret Formula for Natural Weight Loss 

Despite all of the diet pills and weight loss supplements on the market most people would still much rather have an effective natural weight loss solution. What they don’t realize is that the most powerful weight loss substance already lives inside of their body, they just haven’t figured out how to release it yet. 

Growth hormone, or HGH, is produced by your pituitary gland and it’s the hormone that was responsible for your height as you grew taller throughout your childhood into your adult years. It is also the reason why it’s so easy to stay slim and trim when you are in your 20’s. The problem is that as we age, we produce less and less growth hormone. The result is a thicker waistline and difficulty losing body fat. 

The good news is that you can still harness the power of HGH through diet and exercise. There are HGH supplements on the market, but they do not work as well as the natural HGH your body produces. 

Your body can release growth hormone through bouts of intense exercise.  Circuit training and high intensity interval training, or HIIT, are the best forms of fat burning exercise you can do for this. They are both highly effective at raising your growth hormone levels and forcing your body to burn fat. 

You may have heard that you should eat 5 or 6 small or mini meals throughout the day to “rev up your metabolism”.  The problem with this is that your insulin levels will remain high.  If your insulin levels are too high, your body will not release growth hormone, and therefore cannot burn fat. This is also the reason why you should exercise on an empty stomach if your goal is fat loss. 

Since we all must eat to survive, the only way to achieve low insulin levels is to stop eating, or fast.  But since most of us have jobs and a life to live, we can’t just fast all the time, it would be too hard.  That’s why intermittent fasting, or IF, is so great. Fasting just once or twice per week for a 24 hour period is highly effective and will get your insulin levels low enough for your body to shed fat. 

People who have lost weight with intermittent fasting say that it is the easiest method they have ever tried to lose and maintain their weight. Why not join them in their success and give it a try!
