Intermittent fasting is becoming more and more popular and there is a lot of information on the subject but what I intend to do today is really simplify all this information so that in an easy to follow guide. And what I really want you to get out of this video would be the principles by which intermittent fasting works so you can apply it to your diet in a flexible way. So what is intermittent fasting? It is a way of structuring your meal plan in which you spend a portion of the time not eating anything at all and then that is followed by a portion of the time in which you can eat a little more than usual. There are a lot of popular ways of setting up your power and fasting windows. For example, lean gains known as the 16/8 method is one of the most popular approaches. Here you would spend 16 hours of day fast and then you would use the other eight hours of the day while you are feeding the window. In this method it is generally popular to skip breakfast and curb your appetite with some coffee and sparkling water. Then there's another called The Warrior Diet. Here it is recommended to have a fast of 18 to 20 hours and then a feeding period of four to six hours. Another method is the fast alternate day. Here you would fast for one day and then eat more than you wanted the next day. And the last thing I want to mention in this video is the 5-2 diet which is a form of intermittent fasting in which you spend two days in a very low deficit like less than 25% maintenance and then 5 days of normal eating.
Now the crazy thing is, even though these methods are very different from each other that everyone can work. So what does this tell us about intermittent fasting? This tells us that we can eat whatever we want during our feeding windows and still burn fat just because we fast. Not quite. The reason why all of these different intermittent fasting plans work is because taking a period of time in which you are not allowed to eat many calories is likely to create a calorie deficit. In case you do not know what that means a calorie deficit is when you take in fewer calories then your body needs to maintain its daily functions. This lack of energy causes your body to draw energy from your fat stores to make up for what you are not getting from your diet. It's literally that simple. Combine this with the fact that when you eat all your food in one or two meals you can only eat a lot before you start feeling full and it will create even better conditions for a total calorie deficit. Now the reason why this does not mean that you could eat whatever you want to any excess you want is because if you eat so much that you take away that calorie deficit then you will not lose weight. In fact, if during your feeding period you eat so much that you put yourself in a state of a calorie surplus, then you can even put on fat in an intermittent fasting plan. This is the thing that is often misunderstood and neglected by many people who begin an intermittent fasting protocol. What intermittent fasting does not do for you is limiting your eating only to a smaller period of the day than saving calories and having more space 4 more of those calories to be consumed at a time. If for example you are only eating two meals in the day you are going to be able to eat many more calories during those two meals. That gives you more space to eat higher calorie foods like junk food, for example. Almost a good way to summarize most of the intermittent fasting protocols is to eat larger meals less often. That does not detract from the effectiveness of these plans. I just want you to understand the bottom line behind why they work. Because if you can understand that then you do not need to be bound to any type of a diet even intermittent fasting. Your diet can be more adaptable based on your life and could work for you rather than something that you have to obsess over. The intermittent fasting point is for us to see that the obsession with the frequency of meals and the loss of muscle mass and about our overall diet is unnecessary to succeed. However, you see a lot of people doing intermittent fasting obsession
