Should I Use Intermittent Fasting to Lose Weight
What is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent fasting is a process whereby you don't eat for 12-16hrs and then eat during an 8hr window. Usually your first meal may start from 12-2pm and then finish at 8-10pm.
What does the research say about intermittent fasting and weight loss?
There are many opinions on the internet, confirming that intermittent fasting helps and accelerates weight loss. But what does the research say. According to many studies reviewing the process of intermittent fasting and comparing that to more conventional calorie restrictive diets, there has been no difference in results.
The simple fact is if you eat the same number of calories during a day, whether conventional or under intermittent fasting scenarios, there won't be any difference in results. The basic rule remains - calories in versus calories out.
The only reason why people are experiencing weight loss when intermittent fasting is because they end up eating less calories due to not eating before lunchtime.
In the end the choice is yours. Do what fits into your lifestyle. As you can see neither one is better that each other. The best approach is to decide what fits and what can be maintain for the rest of your life. What is realistic and what can you maintain. If you can't maintain it then you will just lose the weight short term and then put it back on, just like a DIET. Nutrition is for life!
