It’s good to notice that there are quite a number of friends practising the diet and well being program of intermittent fasting.
And there was good response to suggestion of forming a group to air and exchange views and experiences. However, such a group is still a dream.
In the meantime, a question has arisen, as to the continued observance of a dieting schedule. We have seen that prolonged routine of working out and eating less has the body metabolism adjusting to a lower calorie requirement resulting in the stored fat in the body, left untouched.
As for intermittent fasting, the easiest and most followed regime is the 16.8 one. That’s 16 hours continuous fasting and eating during the remaining 8 hour window.
The theory is that after 10 to 12 hours of fasting, there would be no food based calorie left and energy requirements are met by taking from stored fat. The whole idea is to flatten the visceral fat, the ugly tyres around the waist.
Does the body hate the visceral fat that much to adjust the metabolism! or continuous and sustained fasting will steadily flatten the tyres!
I will be grateful to get some expert opinions and information on this. Clearly I want to stick on to the 16.8.
