Diet Demand Weighs-In on Intermittent Fasting Debate: Does IF Slow Down or Accelerate the Metabolism?

Columbus, OH, Jan. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Does fasting slow your metabolism? With Intermittent Fasting (IF) taking major leaps in popularity for weight los slately, does this mean that medical experts in the past were wrong about fasting slowing down one’s metabolism? The belief for many years has been to eat smaller meals 3-6 times per day, and that by skipping meals your metabolism adapts by slowing down to conserve energy (starvation mode). However, newer studies are showing that this metabolic slow-down is more likely to occur when fasting is done for longer periods of time. When done in shorter intervals such as with intermittent fasting (particularly the 16:8 model), this can actually have an opposite effect by boosting your metabolism (up tp 14%) and increasing fat burning. The key is not to fast long enough to allow the body to enter starvation mode and in fact, IF can also work to restrict calories since it greatly reduces snacking which can lead to a drop in weight.

You’ll also want to be sure that the food/calories you consume during eating periods are sufficient and healthy in order to maintain nutrition and preserve muscle mass. Otherwise, empty calories will create unnecessary cravings and cause regains in weight after a few months. The best thing to do will be to seek help in finding balance when it comes to fasting, whether it’s a temporary or longer-term lifestyle change. If done correctly, IF can help with not just weight loss, but a myriad of other issues including lowering blood sugar, lowering blood pressure and decreasing insulin in the body. Additionally, IF can help reduce cravings and help you develop betting eating habits such as portion control, the mitigation of unnecessary snacking and further discipline. Diet Demand helps patients reduce calories to a health 800-1200 calories per day using a customized version of IF that accounts for nutrition, muscle preservation and long-term weight loss. Unlike most current IF programs, Diet Demand makes weight loss coaches available, along with powerful prescription aids to help kill cravings, provide guidance and education with food choices, and restructure your eating habits for long-term success whether it be via fasting or another effective method.
