How to Lose Fat with Intermittent Fasting
The most simple way to implement intermittent fasting into your life is to simply skip breakfast and eat lunch and dinner like you normally would. I still recommend counting calories because intermittent fasting is not what creates weight loss. Eating in a calorie deficit creates weight loss.
Fast for the first few hours after you wake up in the morning, about 4-6 hours. You can drink black coffee, sparkling/mineral water, diet soda, or zero-calorie energy drinks because they do not contain any calories. Furthermore, caffeine can effectively blunt your hunger, making the fasting window much more manageable.
Following an intermittent fasting schedule like this will make losing weight very easy, extremely sustainable, and incredibly enjoyable. You can eat larger meals that satisfy you and reap all of the benefits of fasting without crashing your metabolism.
Experiment with how long you would like to fast and how you eat throughout your eating window. With intermittent fasting, you can create a short window or a long window, you can eat throughout your eating window or you can eat two meals. Experiment to see what works best for you.
Some of the benefits of intermittent fasting include an increase in cognitive function, fewer cravings and lower hunger levels, and an established healthy relationship with food. These are just to name a few.
