The laziest way to burn more fat in just 14 hours than most people do in a week of regular dieting is…

With intermittent fasting & When you do intermittent fasting…

4 reasons why fasting 14+ hours per day will help you burn fat faster than the average diet

1. Intermittent fasting forces your body to burn more fat

Intermittent Fasting forces your body to  burn 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 or calories your body uses or burns to keep you alive, functioning properly and to do all your daily activities but…

Your body fat is just the accumulation of all the excess calories you overate so every time you eat too much…

The less blood sugar you have in your body = The more fat you will burnJohn Rowley, Wellness Director for the International Sports Science Association

Imagine how fast you'll lose fat combining Intermittent Fasting with a weight loss diet & exercise plan

2. Intermittent Fasting increases your energy & metabolism because…

As your blood sugar or energy levels gets lower & lower as you fast…

3. Intermittent Fasting naturally increases HGH (Human Growth Hormone)

Fasting also increases your metabolism by releasing more HGH &…

4. Intermittent Fasting eventually eliminates your hunger & cravings so…

Fasting reduces cravings

This will absolutely cause you to lose weight faster because you'll end up eating less due to less hunger & cravings and when you first start intermittent fasting…

6 Intermittent Fasting Tips

1. How to start intermittent fasting

2. Best way to schedule your daily fast

Here's an example intermittent fasting schedule over a 24 hour period where you fast for 16 hours and eat over an 8 hour period…

example intermittent fasting schedules

But you can schedule your intermittent fasting anyway you want as long as you're fasting 14-to-20 hours and feasting 4-to-10 hours per day.

3. Eat whenever you want during your 4-to-10 hour feasting period

Usually most diets tell you…

The only change you'll have to make is when you eat so you can still stick to your diet but you need to eat everything you're supposed to in that 4-to-10 hour period and generally…

4. Dealing with hunger & cravings

See tip #4 here again but…

5. You can drink water and maybe coffee & green tea because…

The reason why intermittent fasting works is because it FORCES your body to burn more fat by lowering your blood sugar/insulin levels by NOT EATING anything for 14-to-20 hours so…

6. Do a workout(s) while fasting

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…

Intermittent Fasting Works!

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!!!

I have 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!

Hi. I like the sound of this diet but one question/ comment makes me wonder if it will actually work.
I have read a million times that when you fast or starve your body clings on to every calorie or gram of fat. Metabolism slows down as part of a survival mode in case the next meal is a long way off.
Therefore under this theory can intermittent fasting actually work? And work fast in the way you describe?

Hi Adrian, just wondering if you could tell me a diet plan to follow while fasting 16 hours daily to lose fat. Ideally, I would like to eat 2 times per day but find it difficult to know what to eat to lose maximum fat. Thanks

Hi.Thanks for your awesome site.I have some questions and really appreciate if you answer them.
By the way I'm 17 years old.My height:about 170cm
weight:about 50 kg.And my main goal for now is to grow taller.
1-I started fasting two days ago.The first day I fasted for 18 hours without any problem.I plan to fast 16-18 hours every day and one day for 24 hour.
good or bad you think?
2-My dad's family are short to average.But my mom's family are tall.(180-190)
However mom and dad both are about 160-5 cm.
I plan to do what I said above so I guess I would get enough HGH and also I'm training myself to be able to do 100 consecutive push ups.I do them 3 days a week.
Also when I get up I do stretching exercise.maybe it doesn't have so much or any effect at all.But no harm either...
So with this things said how much likely is it for me to reach 180-5 cm?
Thanks you.And sorry for my English!:)

Hello, I'm 20 years old, 5'4 and 134 lbs. I lost ten pounds by cleaning up my diet, but have plateaued since. I want to try IF and jump start my weight loss again, especially in the next 3 weeks before Thanksgiving. I have a few questions:
1) How much is it reasonable to assume I could lose in 2-3 weeks? I will stick with a 1,200 calorie diet.
2) When I have not eaten for just a few hours I tend to feel sick, nauseous, dizzy and lightheaded. What can I do to prevent this? I cannot imagine making a full 14-16 hours without eating.

November 08, 2014

Adrian Bryant

1. expect to lose 10 pounds every 4-to-6 weeks at your point since weight loss rate slows down as you get closer and closer to your goal

2. it may be tough the first couple of days but then again... IF isnt for everyone but hopefully you can work up to a point where you're not getting lightheaded. try smaller 12 hour fast first

What work out do I do when fasting. I am 170 lbs and looking to lose 30.

Hi Adrian.

I am 109kgs 5'6 tall and I want to lose as much weightl/fat as I can within 5weeks. I've been trying to eat right and exercise to drop my weight/fat but it is hard, I am limited with exercise as I have carpal tunnel syndrome and it's frustrating cause I feel like I'm a weak person not being able to lift things.

I was looking at doing IF but with my restrictions of exercise I only have been doing 30 min cardio x2 a day, 5 days a week etc skipping, elliptical, squats, lunges and HIIT with my kids.
My question is, with the exercises I'm doing will I be losing fat all over if I start on the IF diet?
And do you think I will lose a lot within the 5wks with the limitations I have with exercising?

Thanks Adrian

yes you will lose all over but for a 5 week plan go here

Hi Adrian,

I am a 28 year old male, 195lbs, 5'7". Most of my fat is in my belly and around my midsection. I've been doing IF for a week now and workout 6 days a week doing HIIT 20min a day (Mike Chang). I eat between 700-1800 calories a day. I fast between 16-18 hours a day. Should I have seen my weight loss by now or no? I haven't lost anything. When should I start seeing weight loss?

October 30, 2014

Adrian Bryant

how are you counting calories

October 31, 2014

AP

myfitnesspal app

How long does it usually take to see results on the scale or period?

October 31, 2014

Adrian Bryant

so what's your overall daily average? do you eat closer to 700 or 1800 mostly? either way art your weight the 1800 cals alone should cause you to lose weight within a week. triple check to make sure you are counting calories correctyl

November 01, 2014

AP

I work midnight shift. So my eating times are 4pm-12am and sometimes 6pm -12am. I sleep most of the day anyway. Sometimes I even eat 700 -900 a day but overall I'm eating closer to 1800 on average. My main meals have been from Subway cause its easier for me count their calories. Its been a full week and my weight hasn't budged. Idk what I'm doing wrong. I have 30lbs to lose, so I know with my current weight and body fat percentage I should losing by now.

November 01, 2014

Adrian Bryant

try to stay more consistent in your calorie intake so you can get a firm handle on exactly how much you need to eat to lose weight but even still...

triple check your calorie counts to make sure you are counting correctly because like I said you should have lost something by now

Hi Adrian! I have been doing IF for about 2 months now and have lost almost 30lbs. I cut off food from 930-45pm and wont eat again until maybe 12-2pm the next day and all I do is chew sugarfree gum and drink water. My issue is recently I have been snacking alot during my eating window. Either snacking on chips, cookies, etc. Why is it I am craving sweets and snacks more now than I did before?

Hi Adrian,
I am a 60 year old woman, just diagnosed with celiac, low thyroid, estrogen, progest., and testost. I am being supplemented with all 4 hormones. The inflammation caused by the celiac makes for very sore joints. I just started intermittent fasting, but I am in so much discomfort from the inflammation. Which exercises would you recommend until the inflammation reduces and the joints don't hurt so much? I do have a treadmill and stationary bike, as well as some weights.

MS V

Hi Adrian its me again. I have been doing IF now for over a month and I am loving the results! Everyone says I'm slimmer and I love the way my body is changing. My question is recently though I have been over eating my 1500 a day calories (not including what I eat on days I workout sometimes I go up to 2000 to try and keep the 1500 mark). I just find myself breaking my curfew of starting my IF. Any advice? I feel as though I'm plateauing

September 28, 2014

Adrian Bryant

Are you saying your current weight loss has slowed down and you want some ways to speed things up?

September 28, 2014

no I guess my body is getting tired of IF but if you have ways of doing that im open to it

Hi, Adrian!! Thank for your great posts.
I did the IF this week, from 14 to 16 hrs each day… and the first day I weighted 3 pounds less, and the last day, 3 pounds MORE (than the weight I started with). What could be going on here???
I started this because there was no way for me to start a diet or something… so this was kind of a drastical way to do it. I feel better because my body got used to eat less and to not have the great headaches I always have between meals when dieting… BUT didn't loose a pound!! (and gained 30).

Any suggestions?? (THanks a lot!!)

September 28, 2014

Adrian Bryant

are you tracking your calorie intake and are you working out any?

September 28, 2014

Melissa

Hi!! I have a few questions... I'm a mom of 2 and had 2 csections. I've always struggled with me weight. I lost 100 pounds when I was 17-18 years old. Then after I had my son lost 70 pounds cause I gained that much. I had my daughter in May last year and have lost 40 pounds so far. I've been trying to lose the last 20 for about 4 months. I'm taking phentermine and working out 5 days a week for 25 minutes a day (T25 program). I can't seem to lose this last 20 pounds. So my questions are... How many calories do I need for the day?
Is phentermine a good thing to take while doing this fasting method?
If I don't do the fasting method on Saturday and Sunday will it greatly affect my results?
Thank you so much for listening to my story!! You can email me your response.

September 23, 2014

Adrian Bryant

calories? that's something you will need to find out thru trial and error by keeping a food journal or calorie app but im guessing 1200-to-1600 cals

the answer on phentermine is more up to your doctor but my opinion is that doing the fasting will naturally control your appetite without drugs but to answer your question... YES , in my opinion I believe it's safe for you to take phentermine while fasting (but please check with doctor)

Taking sat and sun off isnt bad but of course you wont lose fat as fast as someone who does it 7 days a week

anything with calories counts but some gum is ZERO calorie

Your body does get used to fasting and the way it gets used to it is by learning to burn more fat for energy in the long run

September 23, 2014

kattie

This is something I starting doing naturally after I lost 40 lbs the old fashioned ( WW) way after having my daughter. i usually eat around 230 or 3pm my first meal of the day ( a big "no no " on the old way). I have coffee the first part of my day. After I lost the initial weight i hit a plateau and gave up. I was so scared of gaining it all back that i developed a fasting habit to help maintain the weight. I eat seriously whatever I want ( bad i know) but i don't eat until about 230 or so and stop around 8 or 9 i go to bed around 1130 . I Weigh in regularly to keep myself in check. And a year and a half after my first 40lb lost i haven't gained any of it back . Now i am to the point where i am just not hungry any more.I never thought about using it to diet to loose more weight or that there is actually a name for this process. Thank you for writing the article . I am going to use this same concept ( since i already kinda do it) to get back on a diet and monitor my calories.

September 22, 2014

Nikki

I'm a recent convert to IF. I usually do 18/6 but occasionally I'll do a 24 hour fast if I've fallen off the wagon for a few days.

I really recommend it for anyone trying to lose weight.. it helped me kick the last 10lbs and for me its much easier to have 2 good sized meals a day rather than trying to eat 6 tiny ones and being concerned with food all day long.

p.s. I love your site so much! Thank you for taking the time to put it together:)

Hello Adrian,
I am 17 years and in soon in October I will be 18.I am 70 pounds for 165 cm.I want to lose weight and be slimmer.Is it possible? What kind of diet plan should I follow? Thanking you in advance.

Hey
On weekends, when I go to bed later (midnight-2am) should I start my IF later than 8pm?
Also I asked this question already but I'm not sure if it went through:
I go to school Tuesdays and thursdas very early in the day and it will be very difficult for me to sit in on a calculus class on an empty stomach..is it possible to switch up my IF hours on those days and if so, what hours do you recommend I fast on those days? (I have school from 7am-12pm)

Thank you in advance! (If you could email me your response, that would be greatly appreciated!)

Hey! If I drink a glass of milk in the morning so basically is that ''eating''? I mean like If I wanna fast for 14-20 hours then did i fuck this up by drinking a glass of milk?

Hi Adrian, love, love, love, your site. So kind of you you to take the time. I've been doing this fast for a couple weeks now no problem, I've also been doing workout A from your butt workout, but lately I've noticed during my feasting period I'm barely hitting 800 calories some days less. But I feel fine I eat apples, sandwiches with no mayo, cereal, fruit, lean meat some flavored drinks, stuff like that. I feel satisfied at the end of the day though. Is it pointless for me to try to build this butt if this pattern continues? What kind of results would it yield? Suggestions?

September 11, 2014

Brittany

Also, I'm on that last ten-15 pounds to lose phase, so i just started doing just a little interval training.

September 11, 2014

Adrian Bryant

you'll just have to keep tracking everything and see what happens AND if you're doing the butt workouts correctly AND you're not getting results after 2-to-4 weeks then look to make changes in your diet

Hi,
I have been looking on different websites and trying to get the best advise for my problems and this one seems to be the best!.. i am 19 yo and about 5'3" and weight roughly 155lbs:/ i work a full time job and go to school full time so its hard to work out on a regular basis and also try to follow a meal plan that required specific food... i really was to get down to 130lbs but can not seem to stick with anything... right now i am eating pretty well i.e: egg white and cheese omelette for breakfast, salad for lunch and since i live at home try to portion out what has been made but that doesnt seem to be working... HELP!

Hi Adrian I just started doing the intermittent fast today and it was shockingly very easy!! I fasted from 8am-6pm then after 6 until maybe 1am I ate. I wasnt very hungry though! Is that normal? Should I force myself to eat in order to not end up binging? And will I have the same results since im doing a 10hr fast instead of the 17? Just works better with my schedule

August 23, 2014

Adrian Bryant

like myself IF curbs appetite so yes.. it's very normal to not be that hungry

August 23, 2014

MS V

great! I got nervous! Also is the results permanent? And if I want to workout how many hrs would you say should I do it before I eat?

August 23, 2014

Adrian Bryant

permanent with any weight loss plan = how long keep you keep up your good habits basically meaning you don't overEAT yourself (while being lazy) into gaining more weight but see this

The deeper into your fast = the more fat is burned during workout

August 24, 2014

MS V

thank you and one final question. How long should I IF? I want to try it for 2 weeks if I can. Is that normal?

August 24, 2014

Adrian Bryant

you can do it forever like I do. I was doing IF before I even heard of IF b/c of my busy lifestlye

August 24, 2014

Micky

Hi Adrian, I've been trying this for a couple of days now and I noticed I got a little thinner, but it seems that my muscle mass is getting depleted as well. My arms which have little fat got smaller :-(
You see I'm overall skinny and only have belly fat (<10 lbs. i think) and plan to fast intermittently to finally get rid of the belly fat and have a flat stomach. Is there a way to prevent muscle wasting with intermittent fasting? Oh, and does this accompanied with the other weight loss methods here especially the high intensity workouts result in muscle wasting if done too much? Thanks for the feedback and your service to the people :-)

August 22, 2014

Adrian Bryant

what is your weight and height now? your arms getting smaller is probably due to you simply losing fat all over and the loss of mass in your arms was mostly fat and/or water weight.

for example see this

August 22, 2014

Brittany

I'm very interested in trying intermittent fasting, but I'm also doing weighted hip thrusts to build I bigger butt, can I do both and still get great results?

August 15, 2014

Adrian Bryant

oh yes, just make sure you are tracking your protein and calories to see what gives you best results

August 15, 2014

Brittany

Thank you. One more question, would you recommend doing my hip thrusts just before I break my fast? Or does it not matter?

August 17, 2014

Adrian Bryant

doesnt matter but you can expieemnt to see what helps you have a better workout as far as lifting more weight and doing more reps

August 19, 2014

Greatly informative site! I'm a post menopausal 46 years young fan of IF. I do 16/8 daily, and always work out in a fasted state. I discovered IF before I realized I was actually even following a protocol. I had been ill from a food allergy, and it killed my morning appetite. In 2 years of 16/8, I went from 170lbs to a lean, mean 135. I'm 5'9, so this weight makes me feel my college days body again. My energy level is amazingly high. I'm definitely an advocate for the 16/8 protocol. Thanks for your site!

Hello Adrian, i'm 25 years old, 4'11 and 128 pnds, i want to lose 20 pounds. Thus, i'm planning to do your emergency plan diet by doing your 20 min fast running exercise twice a day 5 times a week. How many weeks does it take to lose my 20 pounds by doing that plan? Thank you so much...

Adrian Bryant

3-4 weeks with that plan

Hello Adrian,
I'm very interested in starting IF, but I'm hesitant because I'm 99% exclusively breastfeeding (occasional bottle of formula) my two month old. I've researched and asked a lactation counselor about this but Google didn't have much on this specific topic and my lactation counselor was only familiar with fasting as it relates to Ramadan/Yom kipper/Lent. I'm really trying to get my body back ASAP but I don't want to quit breastfeeding my son. I plan on breastfeeding until he's at least a year old but I don't want to carry around all this weight. I'm 28, 5'3, and an hour glass @ 171lbs. Any advice on how I can do this successfully and safely would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I'd like to add, I have no problems with my milk supply.

I dont know the answer to that either but you can certainly lose weight without IF. maybe you should use this workout and this diet

I've just started IF and will do a 19fast/5eating window. I work out in the am fasted state and I'm going to be eating between 1500-1600 calories a day. My questions is do I have to watch my carbs? I was thinking on my rest days or cardio only days I would eat 80 carbs or less and on my weight training days I would eat 150 carbs or less. Would I still lose weight, more importantly will I lose fat? Also following the above, would I lose 20-25 pounds in 6 weeks? I'm 5'3 and weigh 258 pounds? thanks

only watch cals for weight loss but yes... eating less carbs will hwlp since protein fights hunger and is more thermogenic

at your weight your first 20+ pounds will come off quickly

If this method depends on lowered blood sugar levels when fasting, what happens if you are mildly insulin resistance?

My blood sugar level in my latest blood test showed a fasting (12 hour) glucose of 100 mg/dl and glycosated HB of 6 %. How would,this influence fat burning?

July 18, 2014

Adrian Bryant

I know it'll be more fat burning over non-fasting since your body is more susceptible to burning fat during fasting

Hey adrian, came across your website recently absolutely love it...great job!
I have a few queries regarding weight loss.
Im male 33yrs old 6 ft 3 and 293 lbs. I have a truck load of body fat to lose especially my man boobs. I want to try intermittent fasting and wanted to know if i should do any weights with your hiit? Everywhere else i go people seem to say weights are equally important as hiit. But your works just seem to concentrate on hiit cardio. So should i do weights to protect my lean body mass?
Thanks and keep up the good work.

July 16, 2014

Adrian Bryant

you can do the weights but the way my workouts are setup it'll protect the lean mass you have

July 16, 2014

javvad

Should i do your workouts 6/7 days a week?

July 16, 2014

Adrian Bryant

3-to-4 days at first

July 16, 2014

Mike

Hi Adrian, just wondering if you could give me a sample diet or meal plan to follow while I fast every day from 8pm to 12 noon to lose excess body fat
