Intermittent Fasting for Faster Fat Loss

Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss
Use Intermittent Fasting with 1 of these weight loss plans for rapid weight loss like Sue pictured above ↑ who lost 124 pounds

To do Intermittent Fasting…

5 reasons Intermittent Fasting burns 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 metabolism because…

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

3. Intermittent Fasting targets belly fat

Update: after doing intermittent fasting for a week, my lower tummy is finally disappearing. Yadira Garcia Sanchez

Stubborn belly fat is hard to lose because your abdominal region contains a lot more alpha-2 receptors that slow down fat burning than beta-2 receptors that speed up fat burning and because Intermittent Fasting reduces insulin…

Real life examples on this page

Disclaimer: If you ONLY want to lose just stubborn belly fat you need to be at a point where you only have 5-to-20 pounds left to lose because if you're more than 20 pounds overweight you'll lose fat all over your body and not just belly fat.

Remember: belly fat along with stubborn butt, hip & thigh fat are usually the last to go. See Why do I still have belly fat after losing all this weight?

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

HGH is a miracle hormone that burns fat, builds & maintains muscle mass.

5. Intermittent Fasting makes you eat less calories

The less you eat = the faster you'll lose weight.

Intermittent Fasting absolutely causes you to lose weight faster because…

6 Intermittent Fasting Tips

1. How to start intermittent fasting

Please note: Your lifestyle, current schedule, situation, stress or a wide variety of reasons may not allow you to get into the habit of fasting 14+ hours a day and if this is the case you'll need to use one of these other fat loss plans

2. Best way to schedule your daily fast

When you're intermittent fasting you can schedule your 14-to-20 hour fasting & 4-to-10 hour feasting cycle anyway you want to but for the best results Its best that you eat your last meal 2-to-3 hours before bedtime so you'll spend less hours awake while you fast.

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

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

Most diets tell you When to eat, What to eat & How much to eat and when you combine intermittent fasting with your current diet to burn fat faster…

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 #5 here again but…

40 ways to curb cravings & kill hunger

5. Drink water, coffee & green tea

Intermittent fasting works 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. Workout 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 = She Lost 124 Pounds

sue intermittent fasting results

Hi, Adrian!

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.

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.

I also did your Jumping Jack 30 min HIIT workout

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 Adrian, I'm 16 going on 17 years old 5'1 and weigh 234 pounds. My doctor says I need to lose 80 pounds or more and I have been fasting for a week now. I haven't lost any weight even though I've counted my calories as Well! What's the problem?

January 12, 2018

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking calories

January 13, 2018

Arianna

I'm writing it down in a food log I choose to only eat food where I can see the exact calorie count due to family issues at the moment

January 14, 2018

Adrian Bryant

and what is your calorie intake?

January 14, 2018

Arianna

Started at 900, but went up to 1220 with your calculator

January 15, 2018

Adrian Bryant

what about working out? see this

January 16, 2018

Arianna

I have practice after school I throw shot and discus but we do a lot of interval workouts and weight lifting, I did your jumping back workout once havent done it since I have practice

Hi

How would you suggest IF for a night shift worker? I work 9:45pm to 6:15am. Eating overnight is a problem to but getting better.

January 11, 2018

Adrian Bryant

include your intermittent faster time in whenever you sleep for 6+ hours

January 11, 2018

Dominique

I'm currently starting a workout and diet plan, I wanted to try IF starting tomorrow but I want to have my coffee in the morning so should I have my feasting time at that time?

January 07, 2018

Adrian Bryant

correct. ingesting any calories breaks the fast

January 08, 2018

Anil

Hi , I was 224 lbs and reached 205lbs in 4 weeks of time. Even I used to skip diet in between, My routine is that I used to eat heavy breakfast at 6:30 am and will fast for next 12 hours. 6:30 pm I will eat some low-calorie fruits (100 calories only) then go for 5 km jogging and 20-30 mins stretching, scouts, crunches, push-ups etc. 8:30 to 9:15 pm its meditating time for me,10 pm bed ..

Hope I can reach 175 pounds in next two months.

January 06, 2018

SAMERA

What would you suggest I do in addition to intermittent fasting for the following goals:

Lose 40 pounds fast (I am only 40 pounds over weight).
I have been diagnosed with two conditions that will reverse if I do what my doctor has called extreme calorie restriction.

It will normalize my hormones and liver function.

Second, I lose weight pretty easily on any diet so long as I cut out sugar and carbs which I don't mind doing. Butttttt how can I keep from bingeing? This seems to be my major problem.

Lastly I haven't done cardio since I was a teen and I am in my mid 30s now and feel like I'm out of breath with most workouts. I don't have asthma, but I have terrible cardio conditioning. What should I start with as a workout routine? Jumping makes me feel like I'm going to have a panic acttack lol

Thanks hun.

I tried intermittent fasting while I was on extended sick-leave from my job. Now that I'm back to work, I cannot make it past 12 hours of fasting without getting a severe headache. Why? What can I do to prevent the headaches?

January 03, 2018

Adrian Bryant

how long have you been doing this since you're back off sick leave

January 03, 2018

Beth

Hello Adrian.. I started the IF and had a few questions.. I fast for 16 hours a day and was wondering if I will lose weight doing that and only eating 900 to 1000 calories a day and only doing a work out each day for 30 minutes of squats side to side bends leg lifts and sit ups.. Its only been 4 days..

December 21, 2017

Adrian Bryant

yes and the amount you lose or how fast depedns on how overweight you are.

how do you track calories b/c you should lose weight on the 900cal alone IF or not

December 22, 2017

Beth

Hello Adrian! Thanks for replying back.. I kinda messed up my fasting time and started it late . I fast from 11pm to 3pm the next day cause I don't go to bed till 2 or 3 in the morning. I get up and do my exercises first thing in the morning. And then around 4 or 5 I decide to eat cause in usually not hungry right at the 16 hour fasting mark. But I pretty much eat anything. I just count how many calories are in a serving of and only eat the serving size. I eat twice in the 8 hour period. Sometimes I only have 600 to 900 calories and I drink 8 8oz bottles of water a day.. I am 40 years old and weigh 162 pounds..

December 22, 2017

Adrian Bryant

i would double check that b/c on 900 cals alone you should lose weight

December 05, 2017

at least 3months if you are only doing this diet without workout

December 06, 2017

Ruth Richards

I am all in for the diet, but I would also like to suggest to keep an eye on your blood sugar level - healthiack.com, because insulin secretion may easily be disrupted.

Hello Adrian,
I came across your website and the many different weightloss plans and food recommendations. Very encouraging and impressive stories!
I am 39 years old, 168lbs. I workout 6 days a week, 3 days cardio, 2 days strength training, 1 day combination of both. Weakness, food and how much I love it! I NEED to lose 20+ pounds before October 20, I know it's October 8, so realistically 15lbs would be awesome for a wedding I will be in.
HELP....your recommendations would be much appreciated!

I came across this article on intermittent fasting on Thursday September 28th.

I decided I was going to fast for 16 hours to start and see how I did. I started that night. I stopped eating at 7pm, I woke up at 7am, and had already been 12 hours! I drank a 32 oz water followed by a 32 oz Diet Coke (caffeine!) and then another 32 oz water. I made it to about 11:30 (16.5 hrs!) before I was pretty hungry. I had a salad and a panini. I had a midday snack and then dinner around 6pm. (Warning: when you do eat, eat slow...it may come out the other end as quick as it went in!)

I repeated this schedule from Friday to Today (October 4th) I had a few cocktails on Saturday night and Tuesday night, I even had a Reese’s! (All before 7pm of course) I used the app MyFitness Pal to track whatever I ate and tried to stay under 1800 calories, but more than 1200 calories.

I woke up this morning and thought is this working? Am I crazy to keep starving until lunch time? So I decided to hit the scale, why not? I did a double take!! I lost 4 lbs?? I adjusted my eyes, this cant be, I haven’t really exercised, I have had candy bars and alcohol???

Needless to say, I am going to keep going! Add in some workouts while my body burning my stored fat, and keep going! WOW what motivation, 4 lbs in 5 days!! Eeepppp!

Hi Adrian....I'm a 51 yr old female and have basically been an intermittent faster my whole life (who knew there was a term for it lol). I've gained about 15 lbs this year and desperate to turn this around. Should I continue intermittent fasting while adding exercise OR do I need to change my eating habits completely since this has been my lifelong normal? Thanks!!

September 19, 2017

Adrian Bryant

you simply need to track calories if you are gaining weight. look at this diet

September 20, 2017

Betty Lewis

I started the fast diet Yesterday. A couple of hours after eating carrots, apple, and celery my stomach started to hurt real bad. Sweat, pain, nausea, and felt like faint. I don't eat a lot of veggies normally. I don't like apples, but I eat it. Could I be allergic to any of these? Green veggies seem to cause stomach pain sometimes when I eat them. I don't have a gallbladder. What can I do to replace the veggies ? Can I eat watermelon for my fruit?

September 14, 2017

Adrian Bryant

as for the stomach pain you need to see a doctor about that but as for losing weight... combine this with fasting b/c as you can see it does not matter WHAT but HOW MUCH you eat

September 15, 2017

Indvir

Hi, Adrian. Is it recommended to attempt a 24 hour intermittent fast, for one day? Why or why not?
