The online fitness expert proposes that intermittent fasting can assist anyone in losing weight. Their newly released guide addresses the three most popular means of intermittent fasting and discusses how they work to aid weight loss. It also highlights what foods to avoid while fasting in order to achieve the best results.
Intermittent fasting is slowly becoming one of the most popular methods of weight loss. However, with this comes many misconceptions as to how it actually works. There are people who are of the opinion that intermittent fasting is dangerous to health, and while this may be true, a person without underlying health issues can fast intermittently without any complications. The only proven side effect of intermittent fasting in most people is hunger.
The guide highlights the three most popular intermittent fasting methods. These are The 16/8 Strategy, Eat-Cease-Take in, and the Five:2 Diet program.
The 16/8 Strategy involves skipping breakfast and only eating during the hours of 12pm -8 pm daily. The Eat-Cease-Take In method requires a few 24-hour fasts to be done each week while the Five:2 Diet program requires 2 days of the week to have an intake of 500-600 calories while eating regularly on the other 5 days.
I Look Healthy explains that extra fat is the body’s method of keeping power. When food is not ingested, the body can easily access this power source to compensate for the absence of nutrition which causes fat to be broken down. The guide then shows how the absence of food can trigger the release or inhibition of several hormones and how this can, in turn, lead to weight loss.
The guide advises that readers should not compensate for the fasting periods by eating more than they usually do. This would defeat the purpose of the fast. It also advises that fasting not be done for three or more days consecutively. This would cause the body to store up energy as fat.
