Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss

What are the benefits of intermittent fasting? Intermittent fasting, is used properly, can be a very powerful dietary tool to not only help you to lose weight but also to maintain the weight loss for the long term. There are several benefits, including:

  1. Intermittent fasting (done properly) does not slow down your metabolism. In other words, your body can continue to burn fat while you're fasting.

  2. Intermittent fasting can boost certain types of hormones. For example growth hormone, which is responsible for muscle growth and maintenance. Fasting also helps control insulin, which is a weight-gaining hormone. Therefore, it can help keep you from gaining weight.

  3. Fasting doesn't cost you any money. Obviously, you don't need to buy any food during your fasting time, so it can be a money and time saver.

If you've tried intermittent fasting, let me know how it worked for you. Or if you need help getting started with it or with weight loss in general, just reach out to my office.
