Intermittent Fasting: A Remarkable Weight Loss Method

It’s called Intermittent Fasting or “IF”. And it is a method that leads to remarkable weight loss.

Everyone knows that one ought to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. Coupled with that is the advice to eat six medium-sized meals a day at regular intervals. While this may have been the trend that started in the 80s, it is old hat by now. 

The latest diet trend is based on the way our cavemen ancestors ate. And while it is not purely a Paleo approach, it does seek to implement the salient features of the lifestyle followed by our species for 99% of their existence on planet earth. 

The foodstuff that the body beautiful was designed for and the timing of how our predecessors ate that natural food is what the whole issue is all about. 

And it is here that the question of IF or intermittent fasting arises in the first place. It might go against the three (or six) meals a day approach yet the fact of the matter is that it works!

You have to keep a window during which you will eat and the rest of the eight or 16 hours are a time of fasting. While you may choose to fast just two or three times a week, but that way you will have to undergo 24 hour fasts. 

In case of doing it the easy way you will need to fast in the morning and maybe eat a light lunch and a heavy dinner later on. The choice is entirely yours. You have to experiment with different methodologies and find out the one that is right for you. 

As for the food you consume during intermittent fasting, it is best if it is natural (meat, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds). You may exercise during the fasting state but it should consist of short sessions that are vigorous and highly intense in nature. 

 

Finally, remember that you will lose weight using this approach but do not splurge since by binge eating you will erase all chances at weight loss

Try intermittent fasting and see if it works for you. We bet it will, since it is the most suitable system of natural eating for the human physique.
