Nobody loves the word “fasting.” Who can stay away from delicious food? But Then Why Intermittent Fasting? Well, what if I tell you that you can have a pizza slice during this fasting. Wait..what..??? Yes, this is what I love the most about this fasting. You have to skip for a few hours and then eat whatever you want in your eating window. Simple, isn’t it? So, let’s break it down to a more simple level: what exactly IF is, how it can be done, and what things to take care of.
Basically, intermittent fasting is where you eat and fast for a certain period throughout the day.
There are no specific restrictions on what to eat, only when to eat and how much to eat. Portion controlling is always an important aspect whenever you are going to diet or fasting.
The most famous or easily achievable IF window is 16:8, where you fast for 16 hours and have an 8-hour eating window.
The thing which makes it easy is that sleeping hours are also considered fasting. A normal human being sleeps for 7-8 hours on average plus 3-4 hours before sleep, and 3-4 in the morning will sum up to 16 hours of fasting. Easy-peezy!!
Portion Control: No doubt, there is nothing restricted in this fasting, but make sure one should consume limited calories and should not overeat.
Calories Count: Keep track of your calories. Down the line, the formula is the same: calories intake and calories burned. If calorie intake is excessive, nothing in this world can make your weight loss successful.
Things you can have: In the 16-hour fasting window, ever you feel hungry, grab something non-calorie stuff f.e Black coffee, Green Tea, Green Coffee, or any other non-calorie drink. These things keep you going and keep you on track.
There are many more IF approaches, but these are some of the famous ones. I believe that 16:8 fasting is the easy one and doesn’t push you off the limit. Don’t make you starve like hell.
But make sure you do adequate research on IF before following it, or better to consult a certified dietician before starting it.
