WHETHER you watch what you eat by counting your daily calories or practicing intermittent fasting, either approach can be effective for weight loss. Intermittent or alternate-day fasting requires routinely alternating between eating little or no food and then feasting in your daily diet. It has become a growing weight loss trend in the US, the UK and other regions around the world.
However, because it requires a major effort every other day, it is unlikely to be applicable to the great majority of the overweight population, particularly in the absence of the close monitoring. Alternate-day fasting doesn’t seem to work very well in people who are frequent snackers and I am guilty as charged. People who need to eat every two hours, they don’t tend to fare well on this diet, whereas people that just naturally tend to go a long period of time without eating, like four to five hours … those people actually tend to do much better.
Lastly, fasting could be harmful for people with certain health conditions, such as diabetes — so consult your doctor before attempting any major changes in your daily diet, such as alternate-day fasting.
