couk It is going a period of time without food, then having a period of time, a much smaller amount of time, with food It is typically split into a 16 hour fast and a 8 hour “feeding window” Millions of people have reportedly been able to lose weight, get to their goal using this method 16/8 is just one of the ways some people do it

Others do 18/6, fast for 18 hours and eat for 6, others do 20/4, 22/2, me personally I’m no stranger to doing 36/2 yes, no food for 36 hours, a day and a half, eat for 2 hours and repeat The said benefits and results you get from intermittent fasting alone are meant to be groundbreaking, earth-shattering

Food doesn’t quite work that way though The universal rule to weight management is If more goes in than comes out, you put on weight, if more comes out than you put in, you lose weight Or formerly known as, Energy in versus energy out I say formerly known because it is simply an incorrect statement It leads to ideas such as one can “run out” of energy

The body does not operate that way Food and liquids are energy replacers They replenish They do not create Energy is created when it is needed first and replaced second

So saying you do not have energy to do something, is in itself impossible to do As it requires energy to be able to breathe, speak, and everything else If you can breathe, you are clearly able to create energy if you can create energy you can always be active, you can always exercise Now, where was I, right The universal rule to weight management With intermittent fasting, as you have less time to eat, you tend to eat less Eating less for a period of weeks leads to you getting smaller The exact opposite happens when you eat more over a period of time

This is why those who go into bodybuilding and strangely get told to eat 8-12 meals a day get bigger because they are, eating more If the athlete isn’t getting bigger, more is coming out than coming in That’s how simple it is Another positive of intermittent fasting is that it helps give your gut a well needed break, which when combined with a reduction in sugar intake frequency, your gut becomes more efficient and works better for you You start to understand the difference between hunger and thirst more and more

That quick snack instead turns into that bottle of water Less food You continuously lose weight With all that said, when doing IF, whether you want to have coffee, sweeteners, chewing gum, even a meal, have it, as long as you stick to your overall food of the week Your calories aren’t accounted for daily, but weekly

Instead of chasing 1,000 calories a day, looking at 7,000 calories a week helps keep you even more on track as you have room for fixing potential mistakes We all know how cheat days often get overdone and the aftermath of that We have habits we do not realise we have and we miscount/measure things wrong very often Let’s not forget how much more productive we become when doing intermittent fasting as we waste less time looking for, preparing, eating or even thinking about food Ok that last part is a lie If you are in a huge calorie deficit, all you will do is think about food

Those who do intermittent fasting and remove sugar from their diet tend to do better overall as they do not go through as harsh hunger/thirst confusion pains You act accordingly when you know what the issue is Make sure you like, share and subscribe
