Have you started your intermittent fasting journey and are you wondering how it works? Getting results with intermittent fasting doesn’t need to be hard. If you do it right, you can get the results you want, without interjecting a lot of extra energy you don’t have.
Figure out which IF pattern you will follow
Just like everything else out there with weight loss, you should figure out which intermittent fasting pattern works for you. Some people work out and do IF. Other people eat a day and take a day off from eating. Find which IF works for you and then follow it!
Understand what IF is
If you just start doing intermittent fasting and don’t understand what it is, you could create a disaster. Don’t just jump in without understanding the purpose of IF. With intermittent fasting you will go anywhere from 12 hours to 24 hours without food, going with your own discretion. Intermittent fasting can balance your blood sugars, help you consume fewer calories, and even help you lose weight.
Start slow and then go big
When you’re first trying out intermittent fasting, you may be shy about not eating. Not many people forget to eat, right? Well, with intermittent fasting, you have to start slow and then go big. Maybe the first week, you do a 12 hour fast and from there you do an 18-24 hour fast. Sometimes doing this lifestyle abruptly isn’t the best thing for everyone. You may find that this tip helps you get results with intermittent fasting.
