Intermittent fasting works. I lost 10 pounds in about 50 days on it. More significantly, there’s change to the waist area and signs of a V shape forming.
I follow the 16.8 format with fasting starting with dinner and ending with lunch next day.
What I do is to have a good lunch after 16 hours of clean fasting of just water and not even black coffee.
If I have to control something, it’s the binging on my favourite sweet items after lunch. But then, one needs to have good things in life.
The tip I want to give here is the suggestion to have fruits and vegetables as dinner. These get digested faster and go out of the system in about 6 hours.
That leaves the balance 10 hours without calories from food for the body need of fuel. Then the reserve fat may get accessed for energy. That’s one sure way of getting rid of the visceral fat.
Light dinner of vegetables and fruits gives opportunity to innovate. The picture has my dinner last night.
Green mangoes, carrots, cucumber, apple, peanuts, raisins, kiwi, green chillies, virgin coconut oil, lemon juice, pepper powder, rock salt and a sprinkle of jaggery.
Add ready to eat, spicy and dried shrimp🦐 to this and it becomes a lovely meal. But it takes longer to digest.
