Is fasting for weight loss effective?

Posted by: PFB

Fasting for weight loss is a losing battle, when fasting for weight loss your body will hold on to fat for survival.

Though it is often very tempting, fasting for weight loss can truly be counterproductive. For one thing, when you fast, your body thinks it is starving. A body threatened with starvation will hold on to fat for survival. If you do try fasting for weight loss, you may see some pounds come off, but most of the weight you lose will be water weight and even muscle tissue, not fat. Water weight will return the minute you begin eating again. And, let's face it; you will have to begin eating again!

There is also no way to get the nutrients your body requires for health when you are fasting for weight loss. As an alternative to fasting, consider doing what works. Lower your calorie intake, and boost metabolism to burn fat more efficiently.

There are several ways to do this, and the way that works for you will depend on many individual factors. A combination of eating less and exercising more has long been proven to be the safest and most effective way to lose weight.

If you want to try supplements or nutrient-rich food products to boost metabolism or ensure that you are getting the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function well, be sure you are choosing safe, legitimate products. You can do this with a little bit of research to find a company whose weight loss products and supplements you can trust.
