Succeeding with Fat Loss
In the race towards real fat loss results, having a variety of strategies at your disposal is something that is especially important if you have a pretty unpredictable schedule that can interfere with your best intentions. And while traditional fasting is not something I would recommend, intermittent fasting might be a viable option to bring you closer to your fat loss goals.
Intermittent fasting is similar to interval training, in the sense that you actually structure your eating habits such that you don’t eat anything for some designated period of the day. This period can range from a few hours to 15 or 16 hours – up to 2/3 of your day.
For example, you might only allow yourself to eat between 10:00 in the morning and 6:00 in the evening. Or you might only eat between 12:00 noon and 8:00 at night. Although this goes against more conventional thinking about healthy eating, new research is showing that alternating between periods of low calorie and high calorie intake can actually lead to increased fat burning.
While it’s important to get your metabolism revved up, diet isn’t the only way. Exercise can also help you get there, and the intermittent periods of fasting can help reduce your overall calorie intake, leading to some serious toning and fat burning results.
