9 Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern in which you rotate between cycles of eating and fasting. It doesn’t say anything about what to eat, but rather when you should eat.

According to several studies, short-term intermittent fasting, which can last up to 24 weeks, has been found to help overweight individuals lose weight.

The following are the most popular intermittent fasting methods:

  • Alternate day fasting (ADF):  The basic concept of this method is that you fast one day and then eat whatever you want the next.
  • The 5:2 Diet: On the 5:2 diet, you eat as usual five days a week and then restrict your caloric intake to 500–600 calories for the remaining two days. 
  • The 16/8 Method: This form of intermittent fasting entails eating only during an 8-hour frame and abstaining from food, or fasting, for the remaining 16 hours of the day.

On non-fasting days, it is advisable to maintain a healthy eating pattern and avoid overeating.
