Intermittent fasting is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a regimen where you generally eat very little throughout the day but, because you are not depriving yourself of food, you can feel full. This type of eating is done deliberately and is done to lose weight and increase your intake of nutrients. Many people who are going through difficult times in their lives turn to intermittent fasting as a way to feel better and get healthier. This is a very healthy practice that has been practiced by people for centuries, so why don’t you give it a try? You may find it to be a life-saver.
I f you are thinking of trying intermittent fasting you will want to make sure that you do it properly. The basic idea behind eating regularly and eating at specific times is that your body can tell when it is getting enough nourishment from the food that you are eating and will slow down the rate of metabolism to provide itself with the necessary calories. In many different cultures and religious traditions this is accomplished by having a holy day of eating each week and abstaining from eating regular meals during that time. This is referred to as a “fast.”
Intermittent fasting is designed to decrease the amount of calories that you consume in a day, but you will still consume some calories. Because you are eating fewer calories you should have the same amount of overall calories consumed if you were eating regularly and you should experience a greater sense of hunger as a result of reducing the number of calories that you consume. The major reason that many people have a hard time putting together an intermittent fasting plan for themselves is because they try to starve themselves while cutting back on eating other foods. This is not the ideal way to lose weight, as it can cause serious nutritional deficiencies. In addition to taking in fewer calories, you should also combine fasting with weight loss by adding regular cardio exercise to your routine.
