Does intermittent fasting work for weight loss?
Intermittent fasting is one of the most effective tools for weight loss.
To lose weight, you need an energy deficient. This means you need to eat less calories than you burn. Period. There is no way around this.
Now, I don’t belong to the “a calorie is a calorie” school. Trust me when I say that calories from carbs will put weight on you faster than the same number of calories from fat or protein because carbs affect your metabolism adversely.
But the fact is that cutting way down on your overall calories—no matter where they come from—results in weight loss.
And intermittent fasting is a simple and effective way to reduce your caloric intake.
Other ways in which intermittent fasting promotes weight loss, which are covered in this intermittent fasting resource, include:
- Lowers insulin levels (fat-storing hormone) and raises glucagon levels (fat-releasing hormone)
- Boosts adrenaline and norepinephrine to promote fat burning while at rest
- Fights inflammation–a key driver of obesity
- Cleanses and rejuvenate, which improves cellular function for a healthy metabolism
