Is Fasting Effective For Female Fat Loss?
I have been asked this question time and time again, “Does fasting work for fat loss and do you fast Flavia?”
–> My answer is always the same, “yes and yes” but it isn’t that simple.
One huge myth for fat loss is that eating too little will make you skinny. The truth is that eating too little will likely do the opposite or it will ROB you of nutrients and make you very unhealthy.
Eating less than your body requires will slow your metabolism, making weight loss impossible and will negatively affect your health.
Presently I am not fasting. I am too lean to even consider depriving my body of the nutrients it needs when I am eating fewer calories than usual and working out with extra intensity as I get ready for my photoshoot, which btw, is less than 3 WEEKS!!!
Going back to the “yes” response to fasting, I usually add one to two days of fasting a month, mostly to give my body a break from digestion and of course to cut some calories that week.
√ Data shows that intermittent fasting, when done properly, might help extend life, regulate blood glucose, control blood lipids, manage body weight and more (Dr. John Berardi).
The truth is fasting is NOT for everyone. It is simply another tool to fat loss. Some people love not having to make meals, worry about taking the time to eat, or find it is just so easy not to eat.
I am not one of those people, I love to eat…but I do think fasting is effective if done properly.
Here is a new Intermittent Fasting program that was created by a couple of smart guys that I know first hand practice what they preach.
