Lose weight using intermittent fasting

Lose weight with the 8-hour diet.

Lose weight is something that many of us have in mind for this new year . Everyone  wants to be more healthy and fit . So i here i am   writing an article about the 8 hour diet. It works for me  and maybe some of you wanna give it a try.

I must say was a bit difficult at start but after a couple of days my body got used with the new schedule and  i do feel much better. I would say that even tho the name says is a diet.. i would suggest to make it a life style .You will have more energy  and  feel a lot better in general.

The 8 Hour Diet is a popular weight loss plan from David Zinczenko the author of the best-selling book Eat This Not That.

The 8-hour diet is also known as the 16:8-hour diet—16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of eating. It is based on the idea that the body was designed to run best with periods of eating followed by periods of fasting. The key to the 8 Hour Diet is only consuming calories within an eight-hour window each day.

This diet works on the theory that the human body is designed for periods of eating and then periods of fasting. This involves consuming calories over an 8-hour period and then fasting for a 16-hour period each day. During the 16-hour period, the human body should be focused on repair and rest, rather than continually digesting food.

How to lose weight on the 8-hour diet.

Eat all of your daily calories during an 8-hour period. Choose a time-frame that works for you. For example, you can eat breakfast at 9 a.m. and then be finished eating for the day by 5 p.m. You could eat your first meal at noon and be finished eating by 8 p.m. Whatever hours you feel would work best with your schedule. Your 8-hour window does not need to be the same every day. Would be best if you start your eight hours with a complete breakfast that leaves you satisfied until your next meal.

Dieters should eat this way at least 3 days a week at the beginning of the diet and gradually increase towards the ultimate goal of 7 days a week. You can eat whatever you want on this diet. No foods are forbidden. Just eat your normal meals and make sure you eat an appropriate portion. Don’t overdo it and don’t binge. Avoid sugary beverages. They’re just empty calories.
Try to get some exercise in before the eating window begins. Exercise will supercharge fat loss. Drink lots of water, whenever you like. You can (and should!) drink water during the 16 fasting hours, but you can’t drink anything else during the fast period.

Where this diet could fail..?

The authors claim that the types of food don’t matter too much. However, you can’t expect to eat 1200 calories of chocolate for your diet and feel amazing. We must continue to eat a balanced portion of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats, and a few healthy carbohydrates. The authors do support healthy eating with the 8 Hour Diet Power Foods, but they don’t want to restrict you.

It can be tough to stave off hunger in the evenings. For example, if you start eating at 8 am, then you can’t eat anything past 4 pm. What are you supposed to do if you feel hungry again at 8 pm, and don’t go to sleep until midnight? What i did was to wait and delay breakfast and that way my last meal was always at around 7 pm.

This is not a new diet idea. Intermittent fasting has been around for quite a few years now but has yet to gain popularity until now. So, try the diet if you like, and let us know how it goes for you!
