Intermittent fasting aka intermittent energy restriction is the process of scheduling your meals that cycles between voluntary fasting and non-fasting over a period of time. Intermittent fasting has been trendy among recent years as an effective kind of weight loss method.
There are three kinds of intermittent fasting namely alternate-day fasting, periodic fasting and time-restricted feeding. It might be similar to a calorie restriction diet. Although the science concerning this method of weight loss is preliminary and inconclusive, the American Heart Association opines that intermittent fasting can aid weight loss, reduce insulin resistance and lower the risk of heart diseases. Here is how you can use this powerful weight loss tool for a successful and sustained weight reduction:
1. Have bulletproof coffee
Although it might be difficult to skip breakfast, you can use this hack to fast for 18 hours. Rather than skipping breakfast, have a cup of fatty, bulletproof coffee (coffee with oil, butter or ghee) that can help you achieve a fasting state while nourishing your body with good fats. Replacing a carb-heavy breakfast with a bulletproof coffee can not only make you feel satisfied but also energized for a long period.
