While Sam was taking her 9:30 HIIT class last week the girl next to her looked as if she was going to “drop it like she was hot” that was before she realized the girl was going on her 18th hour of fasting.
Intermittent Fasting-This diet means not eating at certain time intervals. The thought behind intermittent fasting is increasing the amount of time the body spends in the “fasting” state versus the “fed” state should increase the body’s ability to use stored fat for fuel. There are no scientific studies showing that intermittent fasting is any more effective for weight loss compared to overall caloric restriction. Some concerns with restricting the times one can eat include, overeating during the eating times, not being mindful of what one is eating during the eating times, it can negatively affect your social life.
