Fasting to Lose Weight Works Well If Done Like This


Fasting to Lose Weight is Extremely Effective Done Properly

Fasting gets a bad “rap” as a diet plan. You see, many people believe that if you don’t eat every few hours then your metabolism will slow down.

The “slowing of the metabolism” idea is the biggest myth in the entire fitness industry.

Your metabolism can slow down under chronic, hard-core extended low calorie diets, but this is over a period of weeks and weeks of chronic calorie restriction.

A Study of People Dropping Body Fat on an 800 Calorie-Per-Day diet?

The American College of Nutrition 1999

  1. They took 20 people on an 800 calorie per day diet.

  2. 10 people did cardio training 3 times per week.

  3. 10 people did resistance training 3 times per week.

Results: Absolutely zero loss in muscle mass in the resistance training group and a higher resting metabolism than before they started. So even on an 800 calorie per day diet, metabolism did not slow down (as long as resistance training was done a few times per week).

The Key to Losing Weight While Following an Aggressive Diet Plan is Resistance Training

Want the name of the study?

“Effects of Resistance vs. Aerobic Training Combined With an 800 Calorie Liquid Diet on Lean Body Mass and Resting Metabolic Rate”

Feel free to “Google it” and research for yourself.

How Does This Apply to Fasting?

The fasting I recommend is called Intermittent Fasting.

  1. Eat regularly until dinner (2-4 meals like normal).
  2. Stop eating after dinner.

  3. Fast until dinner the following day.

  4. For that meal just eat a regular size dinner.

This is a way of doing a 24 hour fast while still having some calories during the day. The approach I teach is to do this 2-3 times per week max.
