I’ve been intermittent fasting for 1 1/2 years thus far. First 12 months I went from 320lbs down to 195lbs. I did workout and cut most sugars and carbs out. But yea it works, I used to have Hypertension, it’s gone now.
it is true. i tried it and do it since 3 month. never felt so good before. perfect sleep, less stress, no cravings. better memory, better digestion. it is my new way of life
Islam has been recommending this for last 1400 years and more.
Intermittent fasting has health benefits
for gaining weight loss and defeating obesity..
I’ve doing an alternate day fasting which is started at 10pm to 10am & 10pm to 7pm next day.
So is about 12/12 & 21/3.
12 hours fasting & 21 hours fasting alternately day by day.
10pm is my key start .
Started at 27/8/2022
P/s: could someone tell me how many kg or Lbs i will loss my weight after 30 days?
Thanks in advance.
So I have gained a lot more fat / weight under my skin following fasting and I don’t know why .
I originally did water only fasting for 3 days. Then a month later I did the 7 day water only fasting (this was very difficult, especially last 3 days.)
After this I decided to follow the 16:8 routine. But I when I started eating i felt overweight and lethargic .
So I decided to do a 3 day fasting again to get rid of any excess weight .
Now that Iam back to eating normally, I try to stick to the 16:8 routine or omad.
However, everytime I eat now, I find blood rushing to the surface of my skin throughout the whole body, and I start sweating even on a cold day ! This happens everytime I eat, unless I eat a very small tiny meal, then I don’t sweat.
Also I find immediately after I have a meal if I then rest or sleep then I don’t sweat, I feel rejuvenated and stronger. But it’s not a good idea to sleep immediately after the main meal, right ?
The other problem I have found is that my muscle mass has decreased significantly , and all I see and feel now is soft flabby fat instead of muscles. I..e my muscles seem to have turned into fat !
My skin has become more fattier and flabby. When I look in the mirror my skin looks fattier and looser than before, doesn’t look nice.
I have also gained a lot of fat around my waste. Even though this had decreased a bit following the 7 day fast.
I don’t know why this has happened, when the whole point of fasting and controlling diet is to lose weight and become more healthier.
But it seems to be worse than before.
I feel more weaker, i.e less strength. Probably due to lack of good sleep.
And the fat under my skin has increased.
Does anyone have an explanation for this ?
I have also started drinking ACV with lemon juice first thing in the morning, but after a week of this it seems to have destroyed my muscle mass and turned them into soft fat ?
Also one other astonishing thing I have noticed is that I don’t go to the toilet to poo that often. In fact not even once a week. ! The last time was 12 days ago. This is shocking since Iam still eating and normally I need to go poo at least once every 2/3 days.
Sleep has not been that deep either. Uncomfortable sleep.
I don’t know what’s going on. Any thoughts / opinions / explanations will be appreciated.
Maybe Iam eating the wrong things.
But iam eating a lot of protein as well as drinking a lot of water. Hardly take any sugar.
Improve obesity tf you mean by that
Jesus Christ is Lord and King and Our Savior!
Ah, I’m broke so I have money only every other day. 🤣
in africa we do this everyday… sometimes 24/0 😏
Oh My God! Increase my strength of fasting and benefits as well without fear and loo as loosing patience.
I fasted in all variations for over a year. Also did OMAD for several weeks. I did hair mineral analysis before and after. Today I would advise against it for anyone who wants to stay healthy in the long term. Fasting is incredibly stressful for the body! There are advantages that everyone talks about, but nobody talks about the disadvantages, which are many times greater than the advantages. Anyone who fasts for a long period of time exposes their body to unbelievable stress, which in the long run destroys the adrenal glands. The body goes into a burnout!
I have been doing IF for about a year combined with exercise and I didnt watch my diet 100%, and I lost 20 pounds (10 kg) 😁
