5 Intermittent Fasting Methods: Which One Is Best for You?

5 Intermittent Fasting Methods: Which One Is Best for You? | Health and Nutrition | Scoop.it
Could fasting help you lose weight, boost energy and improve your overall health? Get the facts on the five most common intermittent fasting methods.
The BioSync Team's insight:

5 Tips for Starting Your First Fast

If you do give fasting a try, keep these general tips in mind:

  • Drink plenty of water. Staying well hydrated will make the fasting periods much easier to get through, Pilon says.
  • Fast overnight. Throw yourself a bone and aim to fast through the night, so that you’re (hopefully) sleeping during at least eight of those hours.
  • Rewire your thought process. “Think of fasting as taking a break from eating,” Pilon says, not as a period of deprivation. It can be a way to break up the monotony of worrying about what you need to eat next and when. This is the mindset that will allow you do follow a fasting plan long-term, he says.
  • Overcommit. It may seem counterintuitive, but the best plan is often to start when you’re busy — not on a day when you’ll be sitting on the couch wanting to snack.
  • Hit the gym. Pairing intermittent fasting with consistent exercise will help you get better results. “It doesn’t have to be hardcore or crazy; it can be  something as simple as a full-body strength training routine two or three times per week,” Shanks says.
