ABOUT THE BOOK
People who want to lose weight are frequently confused by the wide range of available diets and exercise regimens. Choosing one that is right for you is difficult because each individual has specific eating habits and lifestyles. Additionally, there are many diets that are simply ineffective, meaning that medical research has not confirmed their utility in weight loss. This further complicates the task of navigating through the immense amount of information found in books and on the Internet in an attempt to choose an effective and safe weight loss diet. However, there are a few diet regimens that have been monitored throughout the years by medical professionals to ensure utility and safety in weight loss, and that have proven their effectiveness in research studies. One such diet is called intermittent fasting, and this article will explain how it works to help you lose weight and why it is so effective.
Intermittent fasting is similar to caloric restriction, a straightforward diet that involves a reduction of the amount of ingested calories while maintaining proper nutritional value of food to stay healthy. Unlike caloric restriction, however, in intermittent fasting the emphasis is placed on the eating pattern of the individual rather than on reducing the amount of calories of each meal.
EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Lean meat is an excellent source of high-quality proteins. Grilled chicken and turkey are great sources of iron, which is a chemical element that is used to produce red blood cells. Red blood cells transport oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, giving you energy. Meat is rich in carnitine, which is a natural compound that is used to transport fat inside the cells to the place where it is burned.
Fish is a great source of proteins and has almost no cholesterol. There is something magically strange about fish fat: it can help you lose weight and lower the risk of heart disease. This is because fish fat contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol levels and increase the metabolism to stimulate the burning of "bad" fat.
Whole-grain foods and cereals are an excellent component of a good intermittent fasting diet due to their specific compounds that help you lose weight naturally. First, whole-grain foods are rich in dietary fiber. Fiber is a natural compound found in plant-derived foods that is not digested and absorbed by the human body. However, even though it has no energetic value, it has a vital role in weight loss, especially when combined with intermittent fasting. Fiber can swell with water in the stomach and gut, which creates a gel-like structure that prevents excessive absorption of fat and cholesterol...
