Intermittent Fasting For Weight Loss - What Is Intermittent Fasting Anyway?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many people that use intermittent fasting for weight loss. It's a very effective method for weight loss and can be combined with any diet you choose. Intermittent fasting and low carb, calorie counting, or just plain eating healthy is one of the easiest ways to lose weight. It can be a lifestyle change you may chose to adapt or it can be something you use occasionally for "damage control." Who doesn't need that occasionally, right?

Intermittent fasting can be described in a few different ways. Basically, it involved having periods of time where you do not consume calories, or you consume a very small amount of calories. Everyone is eating this way because when you're sleeping, more then likely, you are not eating anything. This time gives your body's digestive system a break and has many potential health benefits.

Intermittent fasting is also very flexible. It's important to find a way of eating that works for you when trying to lose weight. There is a myth in the weight loss community that you have to eat 'mini-meals' throughout the day to lose weight. This isn't practical for most people and can be discouraging and cause you to overeat or just plain eat too much because you are never satisfied. You will be much more successful losing weight with intermittent fasting because you can create a routine that works for you and your life.

Realizing that you can be satisfied when you're trying to lose weight is a huge turning point and a step in the right direction. Intermittent fasting will help you better control your appetite and will have you feeling healthier immediately after starting it.

Another great aspect of intermittent fasting is that there isn't much effort involved. You can live life, go out to eat, still have your favorite foods and the occasional treat. The weight loss can be fast or steady depending on how you approach it. You can be as strict or relaxed about your eating as you want and still lose weight. Intermittent fasting is also good for breaking plateaus in your weight loss efforts.

If you have been frustrated with trying to lose weight, you should give intermittent fasting a try. It's almost like cheating in the weight loss game (in a good way!) because it seems too good to be true. This way of eating is sustainable for long term weight loss, maintenance, and getting to a goal quickly. Whichever it is for you, intermittent fasting for weight loss is a plan that makes sense and will help you feel your best.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! I haven't heard any celebrities come out and say that they use this method but I do know it is very, very popular with bodybuilders and people who participate in fitness competitions. I was eating this way during a vacation in Chicago. We were walking around the city and eating tons of great food and I think I lost 4 pounds in 10 days. I had already lost a significant amount of weight, the "typically" easier weight that comes off right at first so I was so shocked! I feel really lean eating like this even while enjoying so much good food. There's an e-book for sale at my website (above) if anyone wants complete details on the program.

Yeah, man, correct! I was reading in an article written by renowned fitness expert, Craig Ballyntyne and he recommended periods of fasting with diets to prime our bodies down for maximum fat loss. Nice article.
