Intermittent Fasting – Do You Know the Truth About Fasting?

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is often called intermittent energy reduction, and is actually an umbrella category of various meal schedule cycles that alternately cycle from non-fasting to voluntary fasting during a specific period of time. The goal of intermittent fasting is the same as a traditional fast: to lose body weight in order to improve your overall health and well being. If you are trying to lose weight, however, you should be aware that many people who engage in intermittent fasting often do not lose weight at all and some experience only temporary weight loss. Here are some important facts that you should keep in mind when doing any form of fasting.

Fasting for longer than 30 days will deplete the amount of nutrients in your bloodstream, so you may lose fat cells. Fasting for a longer period than the recommended duration can cause malnutrition, which may eventually lead to death. You may also experience dehydration because of fluid loss during fasting. Many individuals have reported that they suffered from insomnia during fasting. It is possible that your body will adjust to the new regime by slowly increasing your caloric intake.

Although intermittent fasting is considered to be healthy, you should not expect to lose weight at an accelerated rate. Fasting for more than 30 days will deplete the nutrient level of your blood. Fasting for more than a week can cause malnutrition and dehydration, which can lead to severe complications if left unchecked.

Eating more often may help to improve your diet and can help to ensure that you feel fuller for longer periods. Eating small meals throughout the day may cause you to snack less, thereby not consuming the needed amount of food and calories to maintain a healthy body weight. Eating smaller meals three times a day or two smaller meals throughout the day can be beneficial for people who find it difficult to eat large meals frequently throughout the day. Eating smaller meals at regular intervals throughout the day are also beneficial to those who find it difficult to stick to certain dietary requirements. If you eat smaller meals more often, you can avoid feeling hungry, which can help you stick with a specific diet.

Eating a lot of junk food can cause many problems with intermittent fasting. Junk foods can contain high levels of sugar and artificial additives that can negatively affect your health. Fasting for more than a week can deplete the nutrients in your body, which can lead to malnutrition and dehydration. Fasting for longer than 30 days can cause dehydration because of fluid loss during fasting.

Fasting for longer durations than recommended can result in fatigue, headaches, moodiness, mood swings, and other symptoms, which can make it difficult to maintain a good balance between work and family life. You should always consult your doctor before beginning any new diet program of fasting. If you decide to do intermittent fasting for longer periods of time, make sure you get proper medical advice first. Most importantly, remember to eat a healthy, balanced diet consisting of protein, fiber, carbohydrates, and essential vitamins and minerals. Your doctor may advise you to drink eight glasses of water and consume a sufficient amount of vitamin C every day.
