Intermittent fasting methods

healthy-17

We talked about Intermittent fasting last week ( you can check the post HERE).

The main idea: Intermittent fasting means you only eat a short period of time.

There are more ways of intermittent fasting, not only the 16-8 hours method that I talked about before. We are all different so you should read this post and decide what style fits you better, if it doens`t work, you can always come back here, read again and try other method.

 

Intermittent fasting Methods:

 

  1. The 16/8 hours: Fast 16 hours each day

This means that you have to fast ( you can`t eat or drink anything except water) for 16 days each day. So you can only eat for 8 hours daily, the good point is that you chose your interval for eating ( no, you can`t split the 8 hours).

I fast from 8 pm to 1 pm ( I sleep from 10 pm to 7 am , so it`s not so hard) and I eat between 1 pm and 8  pm.

 

  1. The 5:2 diet

You eat between 500 and 600 calories a day for 2 days per week and 1200 or more the others days.

This might be a little bit harder to start, but there are only 2 days of dieting per week!!! You have to try this one.

 

  1. 24 H fast day

This is really hard! But nothing is impossible. You have to fast from dinner to dinner, which means you basically eat nothing from 7 pm today until 7 pm tomorrow.

 

  1. Alternate day fasting

This must be the hardest, you have to eat a day and fast the other day, and so on until you hit your weight loss goal. The problem is that you will probably binge the day you can eat . That`s why I don`t follow this one and I am pretty sure I would be too hungry to do anything.

 

My favorites are 18-6 hours and 5:2, I find those easier to follow. Tell me in the comments which you like better!
