The Snake Diet is a fasting focused lifestyle that promotes proactive eating. Let’s take a moment to unpack this for you. When we talk fasting we mean totally abstaining from food or consuming calories. During fasting periods the only thing being consumed is Snake Juice. Being in a fasted state is the only way to access the fat stores around your body. You are literally a walking buffet and it is through fasting that fat is broken down and metabolized by the body.
So what about eating? The Snake Diet promotes proactive eating. Proactive eating refers to intentional and deliberate eating windows. The Snake Diet feeding window is a tight 1-2 hrs. The Snake Diet is a results based diet. We promote fasting protocols that result in fat loss, followed by a maintenance routine to sustain your goal weight.
The Snake Diet takes an evolutionary approach to eating. Since the beginning human food sources have been inconsistent. As a result the human body has made hormonal adaptations to survive in an environment of food scarcity.
When you eat more food than you can readily expend the excess energy is stored away for later use. When we eat our insulin levels increase and help to store energy in two ways. Sugars form long chains and are stored as glycogen in the liver. This energy source is for immediate use. There is limited storage space in the liver so; once capacity is reached the liver then begins to turn excess energy into fat to be stored on the body. There is no limit to how much fat can be stored on the body. The catch is that you cannot access the energy stored as fat until you have first depleted the liver of sugars. So, if you continue with high eating frequencies you are keeping your body in a constant fed state your body will continue to get energy from incoming food sources never depleting the liver of sugar and never allowing your body to access the stored fat on your body thereby leading to weight gain.
Being fed all of the time is an unnatural state of being. Humans were built to endure fasting periods. We fast when we sleep and we fast between meals. The discussion is not about whether you should fast or not because you already fast every night when you sleep however, where the Snake Diet challenges mainstream dogma is meal frequency. The Snake Diet turns what you thought about eating on its head by flipping the fasting and feeding equation. Instead of high meal frequencies the Snake Diet promotes extended periods of fasting followed with small windows of feeding.
When you eat is as important if not more important than what you eat. If you do not allow you body to fast you will not access your fat stores, you will continue to gain weight at the very least but more than likely you will end up with any number of health related issues.
Beyond the initial protocols the Snake Diet does not recommend a standard duration of fasting for weight loss because the amount of stored fat varies from person to person but regardless of time spent fasting consumption of Snake Juice is necessary.
