So you have set your goal of losing weight effectively and you have decided to try intermittent fasting as your way to go about your weight loss transformation. For those who do not know what intermittent fasting is, it is a system where you will set a particular time frame within a day where you can eat, while for the rest of the day you will fast and not consume any calories other than drinking plain water. This will significantly reduce the amount of calories you take it even though you can take anything you want to eat during the eating period. The best part about this is that research and experience has shown that this is a very effective method for weight loss.

Apart from helping you to lose weight, intermittent fasting will also provide you with a lot of other health benefits!

First of all, it reduces your urge to get hungry when dieting. Controlling your hunger urge when you are dieting is usually a big problem, but it is not the case when it comes to intermittent fasting. After only a few short days of starting this diet, your body will soon adjust to this new eating pattern.

Next, it also increases your mental focus. When you concentrate in this fasting, your body releases a chemical called catecholamine, which greatly increases your mental awareness and productivity.

It reduces oxidative stress, meaning that the accumulation of oxidative radicals in your body is reduced when you fast. This will greatly reduce the damage to done to internal organs within your body.

Your energy levels are also stabilized, and your mood will be improved. Blood sugar levels will also be kept stable, and this helps you to avoid having diabetes in the long run.

Intermittent fasting, like exercising, induces a cellular stress response within your body, increasing your ability to deal with stress and reduce chances of having health problems.

Of course, you will also get to burn fat with this dieting method. When you over eat too often, your body will use the glycogen from the food you consumed to give you energy. However, when you fast, your body switches to the stored fats and uses them as energy source instead, burning them away.

Intermittent fasting also helps to save your time and money. Taking fewer meals also translates to less preparation and buying of foods, saving both time and money.
