It’s important when you’re doing intermittent fasting that you don’t overeat at the end of a fast as that will ruin your results.
After you have finished your fast and exercise routine you should then have a good healthy dinner and the next day eat healthily but don’t think it’s ok to overeat because you fasted the day before.
I would recommend cutting out all bread and junk food and lowering your carb intake. Most of us eat more carbs than we need anyway.
Some of the healthy foods I eat regularly are;
- Beans such as red kidney bean.
- All kinds of fruit and veg
- Olive oil
- Sweet potatoes
On the days where you are not fasting I would recommend eating normally and healthily and drink plenty of water.
Also don’t forget that by doing intermittent fasting and exercising together you are cutting put a lot of calories and burning a lot of fat so if you do slip up and over eat on a meal don’t feel too guilty and if you really feel hungry and you feel like you really must eat then that’s ok. Sometimes this routine is even a bit too much for me so I’ll have a banana and that helps give me some energy.
Tips & Conclusion
If you want to lose a lot of weight fast then I would recommend doing intermittent fasting every 3rd day.
So you might fast on Monday and then again on Thursday and then on Sunday then Wednesday etc.
Personally I prefer to fast from dinner time to dinner time but you could do lunch to lunch fasts.
The idea is to just go 24 hours without eating but still have at least one meal every day. A cup of black coffee as a pick me up is fine while fasting.
I would recommend making your healthy dinner before you exercise at the end of the 24 hours as you probably don’t want to be cooking after fasting for 24 hours and then exercising.
I have found intermittent fasting to be perfectly safe and a few months ago I needed to lose 10 pounds quickly and I was able to lose the weight in less than 2 weeks by using this fasting and exercise routine I have shared here with you here.
Fasting 3 days per week with exercise is not something you want to do long term as it’s too intense. But after you have lost weight, to make sure that you stay slim and don’t gain weight again I would recommend fasting once per week. This is what I do anyway and I haven’t gained weight in ages thanks to this.
