For the past three months I have been practising Intermittent Fasting. Out of a number of options, I chose the 5:2 diet, whereby you fast for two days out of every week, eating only 500-600 calories on the fasting days (all in one sitting). Intermittent fasting has been the first diet that not only have I stuck at long enough to see results from, but has literally transformed my life.
1. Watch It Drop
If you are looking to loose a few pounds or are in it for the long haul, intermittent fasting will help you lose weight at a steady pace. It’s not a dramatic loss in weight that will see you gaining at the slightest sniff of something yummy. However, it’s enough to let you know that what you are doing is working.
