Intermittent fasting is the new trend. It is claimed to elicit weight loss, enhance metabolism, and extend lifespan. You can practice this eating pattern in different ways:
1. The 16/8 Method
It involves a 16 hour for men and a 14-15 hour for women fast every day. You can fit about 2 to 3 healthy meals into the 8 to 10-hour eating window.
You can take a zero-calorie beverage or water during the fast to reduce hunger pangs.
2. The 5:2 diet
It involves consuming 500-600 calories for two days in the week and eating normal portions for the remaining five days.
It entails fasting for 24 hours twice a week. You can take coffee or water during the fast, but you can’t eat solid foods.
4. Alternate-day fasting
With this method, you will fast every other day by consuming nothing or eating fewer calories.
5. $Spontaneous meal skipping
Intermittent fasting can be flexible. You can decide to skip a meal a couple of times a week such as when you’re not hungry or are too busy to cook.
In conclusion, the meals you skip are not as important as the quality of the meals you do eat. So ensure to eat healthily always.
