Today, there are many weight loss strategies and methods. A method that is gaining a lot of popularity is the intermittent fasting method.
This method keeps your metabolism high and gives you the best and fastest weight loss possible. This article shows you how to use intermittent fasting and cheating days to burn off the fat fast.
Day1 to Day3: Moderate carb days. Eat about 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fats. Remember to eat complex carbs like brown rice, potatoes, oatmeal, brown bread, pasta… Also try to eat clean protein – no deep fried meats.
Day4: A cheat Day. This will be a high callorie day.Weigh loss is highly dependent on hormones in the body.One in particular, leptin,is the one most responsible for slowing your metabolism when you fast.Low leptin leads to an increase in hunger and a decrease in metabolic rate, much like high leptin leads to a decrease in hunger and an increase in metabolic rate.So on this cheat day, leptin will be increased in your body and with this your metabolic rate will be increased.
Day5: Fast day. The conditions in your body are perfect for fat loss because of the increased leptin. This day you will keep your calories very low.Some experts even suggest a 24 hour fast.
Day6: Protein day. Restrict almost all carbs this day. This day you will completely deplete your carbohydrate storage again to keep your body confused. There are two variations :
– No carbs at all – this is the extreme fasting version
– Little bit of carbs (about 20-30 grams) eat some fibrous veggies like broccoli, cabbage, spinach…
Day7 : start over.
Try to do the fasting on a non workout day. As with any other diet,consult a doctor before you start the diet.
