Is The Intermittent Fasting Diet Effective In Reducing Body Weight?
I want to ask about diet using the intermittent fasting method, is it really effective for weight loss? Are there any side effects associated with this medicine?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Intermittent fasting or intermittent fasting (IF) is one of the most popular health and lifestyle trends today. Many people use it to lose weight, simplify their lifestyle, and make themselves healthier overall. By definition, IF is a diet that is formed from the cycle of eating and fasting. Not specific food what to eat or avoid, but rather when you can eat.
There are several ways to do IF, among the most commonly used are:
Method 16/8. Also known as the Leangains protocol, this method requires you to limit the eating period in a day to only 8 hours, for example between 1 pm to 9 pm, and fast 16 hours later. Eat-Stop-Eat. This method is done by fasting for 24 hours, 1-2 times a week. So if you eat last in the afternoon, then you may only eat again at noon the next day. Diet 5: 2. With this method, you are only allowed to eat as much as 500-600 calories in two days that are not close together in a week, but may eat normally on the other 5 days.
As additional information, fasting Monday Thursday and fasting David which are taught by the Islamic religion are also included in the IF category. Regarding your question, it is true that there have been studies that mention that this method is effective for weight loss. Delivered there, that by fasting, there are many changes both in terms of growth hormone levels, the hormone adrenaline insulin, cell repair and genes that play a role. By fasting, the intake of calories that enter our body is also less, and the energy burned by our body is also more around 3.6-14%, making it easier to lose weight.
Of course, keep in mind, because the logic behind this method for weight loss is to reduce calorie intake by fasting, if you are not fasting when you eat more calories than usual, your weight may not change or even increase. So, hopefully answering your question.
