[I'm not saying that fasting will get you the guy or girl of your dreams, but don't we all feel better when we are in shape and confident, regardless of what we have on? ]

There are many reasons why intermittent fasting works so well, below is a list of my top 3 reasons.trans Top 3 Reasons Why Fasting to Lose Weight is so Effective.

Top 3 Reasons Intermittent Fasting Works

1) Intermittent Fasting Cuts Calories

By doing an intermittent 24 hour fast, you will cut your calories significantly, while still being able to eat each day. Obviously cutting your calories is key to losing weight and keeping it off. Remember there are two key components to losing weight, eat less and exercise more. Intermittent fasting takes care of the eat less part of the equation.

2) Easy To Stick To

Fasting is effective because when done properly, it is incredibly easy to stick to, which is the biggest knock on most diets. If you don’t stick with a diet, it’s not going to work long term, regardless of what you are eating. Most diets are incredibly hard to do more than a few weeks or a month at most, and most people don’t last longer than a week! They soon quit and are off to find the next biggest fad diet, only to do the same thing over and over again.

3) It Allows You More Freedom With Your Diet

In between fasts, you can eat whatever you normally would. Of course, the better that you eat, the more weight you will lose and the healthier that you will be. That being said, if you change nothing about your diet and just fast two times a week, you are going to lose body fat. It’s that simple. You will lose weight and still be able to eat the way that you like to eat.

Intermittent fasting helped me lose 25 pounds!

I started intermittent fasting on January 1, 2010 and went from 201 lbs down to 176 lbs and have stayed at this weight since May 1, 2010. It is now July and I am ratcheting it up a bit and will go down to around 170 and see what my abs look like. These are my three top reasons why intermittent fasting to lose weight has worked for me. If you haven’t tried intermittent weight loss fasting, I urge you to check it out below.

Intermittent Fasting Update:

I wanted to update this post that was originally done in July 2010 to let you know of my recent progress.

It is now March of 2011 and I am around 166lbs! I have maintained this weight for around four or five months now. Through the holidays and the winter blahs, I have been able to get leaner than I’ve been since I was in my twenties, and easily maintain it.

It has been around 14 months since I first started fasting for weight loss and I am more convinced then ever of it’s incredible effectiveness!

In fact I wrote a short report on intermittent fasting that I would like you to read.

Inside you can see a picture of me leaner than ever as well as see how to get access to a video that I made on intermittent fasting.

    One thing I would really like to comment on is that fat burning plan fast can be achieved by the appropriate diet and exercise. Ones size not merely affects the look, but also the quality of life. Self-esteem, despression symptoms, health risks, plus physical abilities are affected in putting on weight. It is possible to just make everything right and still gain. If this happens, a medical problem may be the perpetrator. While an excessive amount food instead of enough exercise are usually responsible, common health concerns and widespread prescriptions might greatly add to size. Kudos for your post in this article.

    Wow!! I love it!!
    I have found that fasting even just once a week has not only helped me loose weight but freed me from the bondage that food can have over my lives!
    I started fasting for” religious ” reasons…prayer and fasting…in doing this I saw not only a clearer mind to focus but weight change!!
    I wasn’t tired or anything and functioned as normal if not better!!
    I’m 42 mother of 5…which includes a set of 2 yr old twins…and I have never felt better. I weigh 135..goal of 125..and I’m 5’1…I work 5xs a week…but before fasting the weight took forever to drop…on the days I fast I don’t really workout..perhaps I will.
    Thank you for your insight and I will defiantly add an other day of fasting to my week [=

  5. Quickest Way to Lose Weight on said:

    I had no idea that intermittent fasting worked for weight loss. I always thought the body would go into “starvation mode” and actually begin to hold onto every last calorie that it can. Thanks for clearing this up, if I may add for people to avoid whole grain and drink nothing but water once they do begin eating again, this will also help the pounds that are lost to stay off for good. Thanks again for the info!

  7. Hi there, I came across this post whilst looking for info on intermittant fasting. Very interesting and encouraging to read about your great results.
    I have found the whole fasting idea amazing yet I am really confused by the staunch opposition I get when discussing it with friends and colleagues.
    Unfortunately, educating the ill informed in’t always possible…is it?

  8. LASIK NJ on said:

    Doing intermittent fasting maybe hard at first but you’ll eventually learn how to control your hunger. And just like what the other posters have said, this works better compare to any diet plans. You just do this twice or thrice a week and it promises to make you lose some pounds.

  9. eil from NLeanMassGains on said:

    Great post, and great to see someone else that has made brilliant gains with ESE and other forms of fasting. I love the fact that you can be “on a diet” without having to pick and choose things from the menu which give it away to friends and family. I’ve also been remarkably healthy since I took it up full time – not had a cold or fever in over 2 years! Great post!

  10. As a Jewish dude i used to fast 3 times a year from age 13.
    I recommended fasting to everyone ….it’s hard but it is worth it
    Good luck

    Intermittent fasting always came naturally to me. Some years ago, when I was a teenager I used to feel guilty about it because I had read that my body would go into starvation mode. The problem was that every time I tried to eat many meals per day, I always ended up putting on weight, because it seems that eating frequent meals increases my appetite (for some weird reason). Now I know that starvation mode needs 2-3 days of fasting to kick in.

    I’m a firm believer that every diet works, and that you should pick the diet that best fits into your lifestyle. I’ve tried various types of fasting, but it’s difficult to do now that I’m married, with kids, and have family dinners. While doable, it’s more difficult, and I can get similar results through other diets. There’s no doubt though that fasting can be an effective weight loss method.

  13. I can totally understand the point of fasting in terms of being able to stick to the diet. It’s a no brainer in that respect.
    The idea though of getting the body of your dreams – usually this includes building some muscle, which when combined with a calorific deficit will make muscle building high intensity workouts hard to do. If you fast on your days off training, then maybe your muscles will not have the opportunity to fully rebuild themselves.
    The point of having 6 meals a day is supposedly to increase the metabolic rate, however that shouldn’t mean eating more calories, just eating less more often. Eat what your body needs, not what some book tells you. How does the book know your build, or body type?
    I can see the benefit – I struggle not to eat every few hours when I’m doing intense training – I think I would black out if I didn’t eat for 24 hours. Perhaps there is a happy medium we could find here?

    I’m a big fan of intermittent fasting and i wanted to respond to David’s comment. No, if you are in good health then there is no reason taht you should pass out because of a 24 hour fast. this whole idea that we need to be constantly eating is pure social conditioning. Rather than hypothesizing about “what might happen” if you fasted why not give it a try? People (including myself) are getting great results with IF!

    I’ve got to say, I’m not a big fan of fasting, since I never got results with it.

    But I found your story to be very inspiring! And will give fasting some renewed attention and try it on some of my clients!

    Sounds like a lot of people are having good results with intermittent fasting. I too use it one day per week, but will probably up it to two for a while to see how that goes. It’s the easiest way to lose weight there is, and I look forward to my fasting day now.

  19. im from on said:

    No. Your body needs fuel to operate and regenerate. Sorry there’s no easy way to weight loss. You should cut out the sweets, eat more veggies (but not exclusively), exercise and get enough rest. Most people overlook the last part. The closest thing to fasting I’d recommend is no late night snacks. Have a good dinner but later go to bed hungry. I once met this guy in Vegas who had what I would describe as a perfect body. I asked him his secret and he said that his only hard and fast rule is no eating later than 6 p.m. He could eat anything he wanted as much as he wanted otherwise. Moderate exercise 30 min 3X/week.

  20. Reina on said:

    Tim, that only shows that is works….why do you think he was so adamant about the time frame? Its just another form of intermittent fasting if he stopped eating at 6. You can’t refute the fact that it has worked for people, several of them have commented on their own experiences in the affirmative.

  21. I’ve started fasting this way this week and already I’ve lost weight. I didn’t know this article existed until right now. I didn’t know this was a way to lose, I just wanted to cleanse my body. I fast during the day, drink loads of water and eat dinner when I get home. I burn calories while I work cause I’m standing all day. Win win situation for me. I ‘m going to keep this up as long as I can.
