Intermittent fasting has become a diet or weight loss program for many people because they have found it very successful. Instead of being like most diet programs where they specify which food and the quantities of foods to eat, intermittent fasting is focused on when the dieters should be eating. People will fast or stop eating for about 16 hours of the day about two times per week.
Then the other times are spent eating in moderation or eating the average and same type of foods that the person normally eats. Due to the intermittent fasting, people lose weight. People can still eat what they want as long as they don’t eat anything during those fasting days. That is why it is so popular. Still, people lose weight.
The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs). Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20-50 grams per day.
You don't need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is recommended. The best option is to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a warm up, lift weights, then stretch. If you're new to the gym, ask a trainer for some advice. By lifting weights, you will burn a few calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight.
