In January, millions of Americans are going to jump on a diet that they will then quit shortly after starting. Why will they quit? Because dieting is painfully difficult and not sustainable for most Americans. What can people that hate dieting do? Intermittent fasting / time-restricted eating! Does it work? Absolutely. Is it easier than dieting? Yes.
DietMagz.net has a great article (The 8-Hour Diet: The Best Time To Eat To Trick Your Body Into Losing Weight) that supports the Silver Fern™ ELEVATED plan for implementing intermittent fasting into your life for long term weight loss.
“Recent studies have found that limiting our consumption to only certain hours of the day can not only help us maintain a healthy weight, but may have other health benefits too, such as protecting cardiovascular health, limiting inflammation, improving blood sugar, and more.”
“Some say that by limiting the hours in which you allow yourself to eat, you can lose weight without restricting your calories.”
“…as long as we eat only during a specific 8-12 hour time frame, and refrain from eating during the other 12-plus hours, we can lose weight and experience better health even if we don’t restrict calories—and that we can even cheat on the weekends without seeing disastrous setbacks.”
“In a 2013 study of 93 women, for example, researchers noted that those who eat their largest meal for breakfast are more likely to lose weight (an average of 18 pounds) and waistline circumference (an average of three inches) after 12 weeks than those who eat a large dinner. They also had lower levels of insulin, glucose, and triglycerides in their blood throughout the day.”
“Forget all the standard advice about cutting calories,” say the authors of The 8-Hour Diet. “Forget willpower, forget diet aids, forget counting calories, forget the glycemic index. Forget everything you have ever heard about weight loss, and instead, just do this: Eat whatever you want, as much as you want. But only eat during an 8-hour period each day (with a few cheats thrown in here and there!).”
