Losing weight sometimes feels like pulling individual hairs out–time consuming. You can be eating healthy, going to the gym, and still feel like you’re coming up short on results. While it could be because of diet or your gym habits (which I can help you discover and fix in this post), let’s talk about another alternative that is easy to bring into your own lifestyle. Say hello to my little friend, Intermittent Fasting.
What is Intermittent Fasting?
In the shortest terms, Intermittent Fasting (IF) is going for a period of time without eating. During this time, you only drink water, and you’ll notice that it feels different. You’re not exactly hungry, which you would think would be just the opposite.
You start to get an actual feel of when you’re hungry or just bored, too, which helps you even more to prevent overeating in the future.
How to Lose Weight with Intermittent Fasting
Some people who love to do a 24 hour fast.
I, on the other hand, do a two day per week, 16 hour fast and 8 hour eating window. Why not everyday? I like food, that’s why (lol). Weight loss is also not my number one goal right now. I do this on Saturdays and then the other day changes week to week.
