There are a lot of steps we can take to help jump-start our weight loss program. First it should be considered a life-style change, if you are looking to lose weight.
If you water fast intermittently with eating regular meals, you will be surprised how quickly the weight will disappear.
It takes a certain amount of will-power when you first start intermittent fasting, but if you can get through the first week or so, it will become second nature to you. You will feel better without worrying about how much you can eat now and how much you can eat later. How many calories are in this dish or how many points is this? You just abstain for a certain number of hours, that’s it. Much easier and not always thinking about food and what you can and cannot eat.
Your appetite will slow down and you will be satisfied with much less food, when you eat. Plus you will lose your cravings in a few days.
Fasting benefits your body by improved insulin sensitivity and reduced stress, disease, and aging.
Studies confirmed that intermittent fasting was far more effective for cravings and weight loss than just daily calorie counting.
Intermittent fasting can also dramatically boost your immune system and drastically reduce inflammation in your system.
When you intermittent fast, consider not eating after your evening meal and start counting that as the start to your fasting hours.
By skipping breakfast and lunch and eating dinner, you have fasted for 22 to 24 hours.
This should effectively restrict your eating to an 3 hour window.
This type of fasting is very effective as long as you stick to the rules. No food or drinks, just water. After you have done this type of dieting, you will be amazed at how easy it is to follow.
If in the beginning go as many hours as you can, until you have built up to the 22 or 24 hours.
It’s not complicated, once you start it will get easier. But in the beginning it does take willpower, because you should not cheat by taking little bites of food or putting cream in your coffee, or drinking diet drinks.
Before long it will be second nature to you and you will be on the road to success and a slimmer, trimmer you.
