Now that it’s post-CNY, most of us would have gained a kilo or two. So now is the time to shed some kilos! Intermittent fasting (IF) will be a good solution to lose your weight effectively and it is a healthier and safer way compared to other solutions.
IF is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. The most common methods of IF are 16:8 Method, 5:2 Diet, and Eat-Stop-Eat.
The 16:8 Method involves fasting for 16 hours and restricts your daily eating window to 8 hours. Basically it can be done by skipping your breakfast and not eating anything after dinner. For example, you start your meal on 12 p.m. and finished your last meal before 8 p.m. then you will hit your 16-hour fasting.
