  • In the last few decades, the food industry has grown exponentially.

  • Largely because our food consumption has skyrocketed.

  • In fact, the obesity rate hasn't been as high as they are today and it seems like its only

  • going to grow.

  • Top largest food corporations successfully brainwashed us that we need to consume more

  • and more.

  • I mean, just think for a moment, how much of your salary do you spend on food, snakes,

  • and drinks.

  • I assume most of it, and you are not alone.

  • So, let's try to find out what would happen if you quite all of that if you suddenly start

  • eating less and starve more!

  • How is that going to affect your brain!

  • Let's start by emphasizing on the point that everything you eat directly affects your brain,

  • it stimulates your brain cells to produce hormones such as dopamine, serotonin or norepinephrine.

  • In other words, the food you eat can change your mood, energy or even memory!

  • Speaking of memory and intelligence.

  • Studies have shown that hunger leads your brain to produce BDNF or Brain-Derived Neurotrophic

  • Factor.

  • Its the most critical hormone to create more brain cells.

  • That means better memory and longer attention span. that means hunger will literally make

  • you smarter.

  • It also lets your glucagon (hormone) to do its job finally.

  • You probably have heard of insulin, it helps to store the food you eat as glycogen in your

  • body, so it goes up every time you eat.

  • And when there is enough of glycogen, the incoming food will be stored as fat.

  • And glucagon is the hormone that will take off that glycogen.

  • If you are having a meal every few hours or so, you will never let glucagon take out that

  • glucose, so you will start getting an extra weight.

  • That's why if you are going to the gym five times a week trying your best to lose a couple

  • of pounds, and yet you don't see any result, you probably have to adjust your diet, because

  • thats where the problem is.

  • Here is a little motivation for you, excessive weight reduces your life expectancy and increases

  • the chances of multiple diseases such as heart disease and cancer, so you better start getting

  • rid of that extra weight if you want to live longer.

  • - What You Should and what not Just to be clear.

  • Not eating anything doesn't merely means you will get smarter, wiser and stronger over

  • time but instead controlling your diet where you don't eat throughout most of the day is

  • whats helpful, its also known as intermittent fasting.

  • A lot of people might find intermittent fasting difficult because it's not easy to stay hungry

  • for 16 hours.

  • At the end of the day, you are used to eating every few hours and have at least some snacks

  • now and then.

  • But our bodies function in such a way that they adapt to any circumstances we through

  • at them.

  • If you feel hungry every day around 12 pm, that's because you are used to having a meal

  • around that time.

  • The moment you change your eating schedule and have one or maybe two meals a day, your

  • body naturally will adapt to this new schedule, and you won't feel hungry at all.

  • I myself have experienced that and believe or not.

  • The longer you go without food, the less hungry you get because your body will learn to survive

  • using the resources it already has without consuming more.

  • And while you are hungry and your brain is creating new cells to make you smarter, it

  • might be a good idea to take advantage of that intellect and learn something very intellectual

  • such as this course I created with Skillshare.

  • Its a step by step guide to help you to find your passion and then transform it into a

  • business so that you can keep doing what you enjoy while making money.

  • Its neither long or short, its right in the middle, wholly animated to keep you interested.

  • And the best part of it is that you can submit your project and I will personally review

  • it and provide you with a feedback.

  • The first 200 people who will use the link in the description will get the course for

  • free.
