Have you heard about intermittent fasting for weight loss? If you want to know more, stay with us and read this post.
Intermittent fasting is based on eating on a restricted schedule ... but how does it work to lose weight?
Food provides glucose and this is the source of energy for each day. By not consuming food for several hours, the body uses fats to work, since glucose is consumed and is not replaced at that time.
Is it safe for everyone?
If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure or kidney problems, it’s not recommended. Fasting should be evaluated individually with a doctor.
If we start eating as soon as we get up and don't stop until we go to sleep, we spend most of our time in the absorbed state. Over time, we will get fat, because we have not left any time for the body to burn the stored energy.
The fasting diet consists of skipping meals for 16 hours and eating within an 8-hour period.
The idea is to eat healthy and without excesses in the corresponding period and consume a lot of water to stay hydrated.
