Caloric Restriction

Calorie restriction (CR) is a current health trend supporting longevity and disease prevention. CR means reducing average daily caloric intake below what is normal. Fasting means a person does not eat at all or severely limits intake during certain times of the day, week, or month. The potency and complete nutritional profile of AFA makes it an excellent choice to integrate into caloric restriction or fasting plans before, during or after to maintain essential nutrient levels.

Good Habits

  • Consult a knowledgeable qualified practitioner
  • Follow a plan with proper intention
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Be consistent
  • Bad Habits

  • Do not use CR or fasting for rapid weight loss
  • Avoid sugary junk food during all phases of CR and fasting
  • Eating frozen “diet” meals
  • AFA + Caloric Restriction

    Since AFA has all the Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and Omega’s 3’s many people notice their signals to eat change. They are not hungry as often, since the body is properly nourished. In fact many have noticed that they start to crave more nutrient dense foods as opposed to “empty” calories.

    The process of digesting uses up lots of energy, it's a good idea to give the body some rest so they can utilize that energy for other bodily functions. Like cognitive enhancement.

    CR and fasting are currently hot topics in nutritional science and health trends. The objective is to maintain good health and support anti aging and disease prevention benefits. Due to the varied and complex nature of this practice affecting multiple body systems long term studies and more human studies are required. However early evidence from the largest studies by the National Institute on Aging show tremendous promise.
