1. Intermittent fasting forces your body to burn more fat
After you eat a meal your blood sugar rises and your blood sugar (along
with the stored carbs/glycogen
in your body) is the energy
calories your body uses or burns to keep you alive, functioning properly and to do all
As you fast or not eat anything for long periods of time your blood sugar
gets lower & the amount of carbs stored in your body gets lower and when this happens…
Your body has no choice but to start burning your body fat for energy to keep
you alive, functioning properly and to do all your daily activities and
Your body fat is just the accumulation of all the excess calories you overate so every time you eat too much…
2. Intermittent Fasting increases your energy & metabolism because…
As your blood sugar or energy levels gets lower & lower as you fast…
is going respond to this by re-energizing you by releasing more
adrenaline (or norepinephrine) which will cause you to have more
more alert and be more focused but more importantly…
As your body release adrenaline it forces your
body to burn fat (mainly the stubborn fat on your belly, thighs & hips) in order
for you to get that much needed energy after your blood sugar drops but the
theory to why your body does that is because…
Our ancestors (like the
Geico caveman) would routinely go thru long
unplanned fasting periods and while fasting their bodies would release adrenalin
to give them the energy they needed to go hunting for the food they needed to
When your blood sugar, stored carbs/glycogen & insulin levels are lower from fasting
you'll naturally burn more fat for energy (without any extra dieting or exercise) so guess what happens when you exercise while you're fasting…
Tip: Take advantage of the extra adrenaline being released
by working out near the end of your fast or before your first meal so you can workout
longer & harder to burn more fat.
Take a fat burner, ZERO-to-low calorie coffee or green tea about
30-to-60 minutes before your workout to get even more energy for your
If working out fasted scares you…
Then simply break-your-fast with a small meal and then workout or
simply schedule your workouts within your 4-to-10 hour feasting periods.

Intermittent Fasting = She Lost 124 Pounds
I am 5'7" & I have lost 124 pounds. I started at 272 pounds and now I'm 148. My first 90 pounds or so came off in the first six months and then my weight loss slowed until I read about your suggestion for Intermittent Fasting
I incorporated that into what I was already doing, and also started walking. Now I do walk-run intervals for 30 minutes, 3 times per week. I also life weights 3 days per week.

Lost 112 Lbs. Intermittent Fasting
I just want to thank you. I was really depressed due to my obesity. I started browsing the internet and found NowLoss.com.
I followed intermittent fasting with a 1200 calories diet plan and focused on eating raw vegetables and fruits only before meals.
This is the change in 101 days!!!! 33 pounds down! It's a result of eating completely clean, doing intermittent fasting (for the most part) and working out 4-6 days a week
From 220-to-145 in 10 months
I want to say thanks! I have
struggled with my weight all my life, and I am 28. I am not stupid and completed my homework before trying intermittent fasting. I started by getting to one meal a
day within the first month and by month two I was calorie counting to try to keep that one meal at 1500-1700 calories.
Basically, I am a 28 year old male 5' 7" in
height that started 10 months ago in December weighing 220 pounds. Today, exactly 10 months later I weigh 145 pounds. I have lost 75 pounds!!!
had full blood work done and I am now normal on every test and I have been yanked off my blood pressure medicine.
Thanks for all your help!
