Default Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting cycles your body between periods of fasting and eating.

Rather than restricting the foods you eat it controls when you eat them. Thus, it can be seen as more of an eating pattern than a diet.

The most popular ways to do intermittent fasting are:

The 16/8 method: Involves skipping breakfast and restricting your daily eating period to eight hours, subsequently fasting for the remaining 16 hours of the day.

The eat-stop-eat method: Involves 24-hour fasts once or twice per week on non-consecutive days.

The 5:2 diet: On two non-consecutive days of the week, you restrict your intake to 500–600 calories. You do not restrict intake on the five remaining days.

The Warrior Diet: Eat small amounts of raw fruits and vegetables during the day and one huge meal at night.

How it works: Intermittent fasting is commonly used for weight loss because it leads to relatively easy calorie restriction.

It can make you eat fewer calories overall — as long as you don’t overcompensate by eating much more during the eating periods.

Weight loss: Intermittent fasting is generally very successful for weight loss. It has been shown to cause weight loss of 3–8% over a period of 3–24 weeks, which is a lot compared to most weight loss diets.

In addition to causing less muscle loss than standard calorie restriction, it may increase your metabolic rate by 3.6–14% in the short term.

Other benefits: Intermittent fasting may reduce markers of inflammation, cholesterol levels, blood triglycerides, and blood sugar levels.

Furthermore, intermittent fasting has been linked to increased levels of human growth hormone (HGH), improved insulin sensitivity, improved cellular repair, and altered gene expressions.

Animal studies also suggest that it may help new brain cells grow, lengthen lifespan, and protect against Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.



The downside: Although intermittent fasting is safe for well-nourished and healthy people, it does not suit everyone.

Some studies note that it’s not as beneficial for women as it is for men.

In addition, some people should avoid fasting, including those sensitive to drops in blood sugar levels, pregnant women, breastfeeding moms, teenagers, children, and people who are malnourished, underweight, or nutrient deficient.

SUMMARY

Intermittent fasting lets your body cycle between fasting and eating. It is very effective for weight loss and has been linked to numerous health benefits.

For me, it worked to try techniques with intermittent fasting, but I also combine them with a weight loss supplement.

So, I have used intermittent fasting or Omad when I hit a plateau but I’ve been considering adding it a little more frequently to help boost my weight loss. I have a lot of weight to lose and obviously had or have a bad relationship with food. I feel like I’m working through it but how do you manage when you just really want something? Any tips ? I will say I’m reaching for healthy things but even those add up.
