What is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent Fasting is a weight loss method whereby you cycle between intermittent periods of eating normally and fasting.
There are no restrictions on food types but instead when you should eat.
There are several intermittent fasting methods you can choose from, but they all do the same thing. They divide the day or week into periods of eating and periods of fasting.
This means that your body can’t get used to a certain amount of calorie intake every day or week so it needs to change its fuel source to your fat stores instead of your blood sugar.
It does this without slowing down your metabolism or having any adverse effects on your physical and mental performance (like most diets can) and it’s even scientifically proven to reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, aging, and cancer.
Fasting involves either abstaining from all calories (both from food and beverages that have calories) or restricting your calories to a certain amount for a chosen period of time. Some methods allow juice or certain drinks and some involving no food or drink at all, even water. Some like the popular 5:2 Diet allow a certain amount of calories on fast days.
The most effective way of fasting is by abstaining from all calories in any form for at least some of the duration of the fast so you get maximum health and weight loss benefits.
This means no food or drink that contain any calories whatsoever, but you can drink as much water, calorie free drinks , and tea or coffee (with no milk) as you like. However because this type of fasting is not easy for everyone we will talk about some of the other ways of fasting that allow some food/calories as well.
Once you’ve done some research you can just decide what kind of fasting you think you can keep up in the long term. Don’t worry, everyone is different!
Why Intermittent Fasting is Better that Dieting
Intermittent fasting is designed to fit into your lifestyle and has the same (or in most cases, better) weight loss benefits than long periods of dieting and restricting calories.
Studies have shown that because each fast is short intermittent fasting doesn’t slow down your metabolism at all so won’t and cause your weight loss efforts to plateau like most diets.
Fasting also has so many health benefits as an added bonus, like giving you more energy, clearer skin, and regulating your blood insulin levels to reduce your appetite, keep your weight stable and reduce the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
Studies have also shown that fasting intermittently has no negative effects on concentration or physical performance whatsoever, so you can easily fit it into your day to day life and don’t need to change from your normal routine during your fasts.
Please note: If you have diabetes, an eating disorder or any other medical condition, check with your doctor before starting.
