fasting good for weight loss?
“Is fasting good to help me lose weight?”
A question I had the other day.
In short, it can be, yes.
Well, let’s say you skipped breakfast and only 2 meals a day? Your chances of overeating on calories that day may be lower…
Which means you will lose weight.
That said, fasting MAY also help you if you have prediabetes by improving how quickly your cells can take up blood sugar and respond to food.
In some, it can also help with hunger.
In short, fasting can be a simple way to reduce calories without having to count them.
therefore, you might lose weight without counting calories
Ideal if you can’t be bothered to count them…
It results in a restrict – binge scenario.
All you think about is food all day. And you end up giving in to the cake in the office…followed by the F it Mindset, start again Monday…
Ultimately, losing body fat will improve the health of most people, regardless of whether you did it by fasting or not.
The principle behind this is creating a calorie deficit. Which means more out, less in.
The TACTIC you use to get there has to fit your lifestyle.
Don’t like eating breakfast and feel like you’re forcing it down?
Why not delay it until mid morning and see how you go? Maybe it’ll help you if you struggle at that mid afternoon crash time of the day?
Keep it eating it. Just be sure to control your portions in your meals 🙂
But I get that you probably know that already.
In fact, through working with thousands of people and helping them to lose fat and tone up, I’ve found that most need 3 things:
1) A simple personalised fitness and food plan that gives you the freedom to eat the foods you love (including your prosecco and Gin and tonic…) but some structure so you know what and when to eat so you can lose weight (and stick to it even on your busiest days)
^^^ As you probably have enough choices to make on the daily, right?
2) Accountability so you do the things that you know you need to do (and get a nice polite kick up the bum to help 😉)
3) Support from like-minded ladies all in the same boat looking to tone up, get fit and have some fun doing it so you don’t lose motivation when it gets tough…
