Alternative to Dieting?

You have often heard the quote, "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." I'm here to tell you that, that statement isn't necessarily true. Today we are going to talk about intermittent fasting. Lots of people only have a few hours to eat due to crazy work schedules and just life in general. Its better to eat for a few hours and then to stop eating. This is an alternative to dieting. This is a great option for those people that hate dieting. Let's get started!

1. What is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent fasting is, eating for a give set of hours and then now eating for a long amount of time. Basically, I can eat at 8:00 in the morning, and then I have 6-8 hours to eat the rest of my daily intake of calories. After that, I don't eat until the next day at 8:00am. There is a huge span in there when the body burns excess fat and gets your body for the next day of eating. Your metabolism will run so fast that your fat will not stay in your stomach.

2. What are the benefits of intermittent fasting?
The benefits to this kind of fasting is the sheer fact that you're not eating and then going to sleep. When you eat and then go to sleep you make it easy for your body to store extra fat and weight. Fasting like this allows your body to burn more calories over the fasting time, especially when you work out at night. For those with diabetes its suggested that you not fast like this.

3. Eat like a King, Prince, and a Pauper!
For your first of your six meals eat like a king. For the next meals eat like a prince, and for your last, eat like a pauper. In essence, you eat the most food earlier on in the day. You eat like a king and a prince first because eating like a pauper near night time allows you to hit your fast earlier rather than later. You eat smaller amounts of food as the day wears on and your body burns it quicker because you are eating 6 smaller meals in a day.

Get going guys! This is not a diet. Its just a lifestyle change that allows you to eat well and lose weight at the same time. Intermittent fasting is one of the great tips for weight loss that most people don't think about. Share it with your family and friends!
