Intermittent Fasting Diet
by Lindsay Parsons
This Intermittent Fasting Diet book is all about the fasting diet and giving suggestions for recipes as the Intermittent Fasting Cookbook. This is also known as the "lose weight fast diet," with fast meaning going without food, not the time frame. Intermittent fasting diets have helped people to lose weight successfully for years. It is a fat loss diet, which uses the methods of fasting as a diet. This is an effective diet that is fairly easy to follow. Of course, the true success depends upon how you choose to eat during your eating times and what you do in addition to the diet.
This diet works by dieting during certain hours and fasting the rest of the time. The less you can eat and the more you can fast, the faster you may lose the weight. But you have to practice caution, because if you fast too much the body can go into starvation mode and nothing is lost. The body, in this mode, hangs on to fat for fear of not eating again for a while. You can avoid this by eating the right kinds of food. Certain foods will sustain the body longer, and coupling dieting with exercise, you have greater success with the weight loss.
This cookbook suggests going with the intermittent dieting where you eat during a set time each day, then fasting the rest of the time. This method works well, because the body is less likely to go into starvation mode if it has food each day. The official diet plan does not specify any certain foods, however common sense tells you in order to lose the weight and body fat effectively you must eat sensible foods. This means staying away from junk foods and focusing on nutrition by eating foods high in nutrients.
There are three categories in the book with an introduction and a sample 5 day meal plan. The three main recipe categories cover breakfast, a main meal, and a light meal or snack.
