Intermittent fasting. Let's do it properly!



  June, the sweltering summer has just begun, and you can't postpone your diet until when.
 Today, let's learn about and practice intermittent fasting that can be effective in a short period of time.

   Intermittent fasting is a diet method in which you do not eat food at a certain time, period, and interval. It is one of the popular diets that anyone should try at least once because it is effective not only for weight loss but also for blood sugar control.

- The representative intermittent fasting method is
1. 16:8
Martin Vulcan's method, which is generally widely used, consists of fasting for 16 hours out of 24 hours and eating for the remaining 8 hours.
16:8 is a method to make a 16-hour fast by skipping one meal in the morning or in the evening. For example, fasting from 8:00 PM to 12:00 PM the next day.
At first glance, this method may seem like a long fasting time, but you can easily try it by skipping breakfast once except for bedtime.

2. 5:2
5:2 is called the Mosley fasting method, named after Dr. Michael Mosley, who first proposed it. Five days a week, eat as usual, and fast for the other two days.
In this case, you can eat as much as you want for 5 days, but it is harder than 16:8 because you have to starve for 2 days.

Both methods allow you to eat within a set time period, but this does not mean that you can binge eat during this time period.
It is best to avoid fast food or stimulant foods that contain a lot of trans fat or sugar. If you eat these foods, you should keep in mind that you can only get intermittent binge eating, weight gain, and stomach problems.
It is also good to drink water on an empty stomach, but avoid coffee and other beverages.

How about trying intermittent fasting from today, a diet that can't be delayed any longer?
