Wouldn’t you love to be able to fit into your favourite bikini whenever you want no matter what time of year or whether you’ve been able to get to the gym or not? Without any restrictions on your diet?
During the year it’s easy to let our figures slide and before we know it that bikini doesn’t fit anymore.
It takes a lot of hard work to get our figure ready and ‘presentable’ again for the summer or for a holiday that we’ve booked that is now just around the corner.
Wouldn’t it be great to be ‘bikini ready’ all year round without even trying?
If you can find a intermittent fasting method that suits your lifestyle and is easy to stick to, this may never be a problem you’ll have to deal with again. You’ll be free from crash dieting, giving up your favourite foods, exercising excessively and stressing about the days or weeks leading up to a holiday.
Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss
Here are three important things you need to consider when fasting for weight loss:
Make sure you choose an easy and sustainable fasting plan to suit you, and that you wont get tired of. If you do, you’ll soon lose the weight and more importantly, keep it off for good.
Don’t fast too often to begin with if you think this will help you to lose weight quickly. You’ll quickly get sick of fasting and this will ultimately result in failure. Instead, start off slowly (see the quick start guide to intermittent fasting) until you reach your goal weight and then find the best frequency and duration to fast to maintain that weight. This will be mush easier to stick to.
Then if you keep track of your weight, and see your weight creeping up you can add in another half day or full day fast every once on a while to get back to your goal weight.
If you also choose to restrict high calorie and junk foods (which is not essential for ifasters), make sure you set yourself relaxed eating days each week (such as Saturdays and Sundays) so it doesn’t ever feel like you’re ever on a diet. Otherwise this will inevitably result in you giving up and may lead to overeating or bingeing.
The point of intermittent fasting is to allow yourself your favourite foods so that you will no longer be obsessed with eating them, but to consume less calories over all each week, and to maintain this balance.
