Break-even starvation (IF) has a serious turbidity in the wellness world. Researchers and supporters say different fasting techniques can help you to live longer and alleviate the symptoms of various health problems, ranging from improving insulin sensitivity to assisting cell repair, but if it * also * quickly becomes one of the most modern ways to lose weight.
What is IF right? It focuses on eating and starving for a while deer periods, so you block a specific time when you don't eat food. "Permanent fasting is when you only allow yourself to eat for a certain period of time every day," Alisa Rumsey, RD, nutritionist based in New York and owner of Alissa Rumsey Nutrition and Wellness mentioned earlier Women's Health . (So maybe eat every day between noon and 8am. Or eat super low-calorie several days a week.)
There is no "right" way to make an IF and there are many variations. One is the 5: 2 diet: According to this schedule, most people eat less than 500 or 600 calories for two non-consecutive days per week. (So you can have 500 calories a day on Tuesday and Thursday, and then eat normally on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.) With a 5: 2 diet, you don't need to eat certain foods – just limit how much you eat over certain periods of time.
Another of the most popular variations is the 16: 8 diet. "The 16: 8 diet is where you eat for about eight hours a day and then fast for the rest of the day," Dana Huns said earlier , RD, Senior Nutritionist at Ronald Reagan Medical Center-UCLA WH . Generally, during a 16-hour fasting period, you limit yourself to black tea, coffee or diet soda. You can then eat whatever you want for the next eight hours (no calorie counts required). That is. Many fans also mix WHAT with the keto diet.
The thing is that periodic fasting involves periods of malnutrition (well, you know that). So it's not a great idea for everyone, like pregnant women or people with a history of malnutrition. Although weight loss may result from periodic starvation for some, you should first talk to your doctor about this if you are curious.
