Fast day 4 of 8 :-))
Weigh day tomorrow!
How to do intermittent fasting ….
- Consuming between 500-800 calories for two consecutive days per week. (Normal diet in between) The 5:2 Diet.
- Complete Fast every second day (Normal diet in between)
- Time restricted feeding. Restricting food intake to a 6-8 hour window every day. So eating only between 12 noon and 7 pm for example.
One of the bodies responses is lower circulating levels of insulin.
Taken from this article from Ageing Research Reviews
Lower circulating levels of insulin mean less fat synthesis. (One of insulins functions is to convert the food we eat to fat, therefore too much food = too much fat)
