If you are serious about losing weight, we have some advice that will help you. Each week, we attempt to put out at least one advice article that can help you during your upcoming diet.
Those who feel as though their diet is stagnating a little bit may find our advice useful. But even if you have not started on your diet, you can always learn something! Today’s topic is intermittent fasting. We want to talk about why intermittent fasting is such a fantastic option if you are determined to lose weight.
Intermittent Fasting Benefits
Want to lose weight? Intermittent fasting will help you. The idea is that you will only eat during specific hours of the day. The rest of the time, you are fasting. You will still keep a calorie count to ensure that you are dieting in a healthy way. We do not want you to start eating 500 or 1000 calories in the day – or anything risky of that nature.
The idea is to limit the hours when you eat, because you want to put your body into fasting mode. Sure, you could do that by barely eating anything, but that is not healthy. You would be depriving your body of nutrients and we do not want that! What we want is to activate that fasting stage in a healthy way.
And that is what you get with intermittent fasting. You will have specific hours in the day where you cannot consume any calories. Sure, you can still drink certain beverages. People often ask what can you drink during intermittent fasting. The answer is that if you are your fasting stage, you should limit yourself to water, plain coffee and plain tea. Those beverages have no calories and will be a good way for you to stay hydrated and satisfied!
