Short Term Fasting Yields Quick Weight Loss Results

By Peg Sanders

Are you still trying to find a weight loss plan that will work for you and have given up on plans that promise results but don’t deliver? Some of those programs will work for a short time as long as you restrict your caloric intake, but none of them can promise long term weight loss, only because they are either too restrictive, too complicated to follow, or too time-consuming to fit your lifestyle.

Quick results can be obtained by including short-term fasting in your weight loss plan. If fasting is done properly, amazing results can be achieved by combining fasting with weight training, and almost all of the weight loss will come from body fat! This combination will give you amazing benefits to your metabolism and your muscles. Growth hormone will also increase as you force your metabolism to burn stubborn body fat.

It’s not complicated or difficult to do, and it creates the optimal metabolic environment for burning body fat. Growth hormone increases, insulin levels decrease, cortisol becomes balanced and adrenals become healthier. This is the 24 hour ‘Perfect Storm’ for shedding body fat at record speed. Weight loss is steady and consistent, and the weight you will lose will be body fat. You can follow any style of eating you like, that’s all up to you. Using the short term fasting method, people have lost unbelievable amounts of weight while getting incredibly lean because of the metabolic effects of short periods of fasting.

If you adopt short term fasting, you’ll then be able to get rid of your bad habits and addiction to eating and adopt a real balanced diet of whole foods, lean meats, and a limited amount of processed foods, and eat smaller portion sizes at meals. Another plus is that you’ll be able to tell when you’re not hungry anymore, and when you find foods that irritate your stomach, eliminate them and you’ll feel physically better than ever because you’ll be eating to live instead of living to eat.

We know that life is about more than food and getting enough protein. While making sure that you keep your hard-earned muscle is important, it’s just as important that you know you can easily get rid of extra belly fat or baby fat. What’s the point of losing body fat if all you’re left with is skin and bone? But as long as you work out with strength training exercises, you won’t lose muscle and may even gain more muscle.

Short term fasting is not about what you can and can’t eat, but shows you the simplest and easiest way to lose weight along with all the scientific facts to support it.

This is how intermittent fasting works. You fast for one or two non-consecutive 24 hour periods a week, and then you are free the rest of the week to eat anything you want and still lose weight. A suggestion would be to fast from 6 pm one day until 6 pm the next day and then you could enjoy a regular meal as you resume eating a normal diet of good foods for the rest of the week. Eating healthy, ‘lean and green’ with plenty of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices is ideal, but you can eat any diet style that you wish and still see fantastic results. When you have fasted for 24 hours a couple of times, then you start to see the real reasons behind why you eat, what you eat, and when you eat. Often, hunger is not the reason but rather habit and emotional reasons are the usual culprits.

Now that you have this information, you can make a big difference in the way you eat simply by making SMALL changes in your eating habits. I’ve tried many weight loss programs but none has given me the amazing results that this plan has and it has worked for me on a sustained basis.
