Lose Weight Fast With Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting is a simple yet effective way to lose weight. Research has shown that Intermittent fasting, when all meals are consumed within a 10 hour window, results in weight loss. And the good news is that you don't have to restrict your food or calorie intake to reap the benefits! Researches also discovered that these mini-fasts reduce the growth of harmful bacteria.

What's the connection between gut bacteria and weight gain?

It seems that bad bacteria in the gut may be responsible for stubborn pounds that refuse to budge. The reason is that our metabolism is set by our body clock. The body clock is not only set by light and dark but also by gut bacteria. When pathogenic bacteria take root in the gut they send messages to our internal clock interfering with metabolism which drives fat accumulation. When we eat at all hours of the night we are in effect feeding our bad bacteria. Beneficial bacteria thrive during the fasting window. These good bugs communicate with our internal body clock and reboot our metabolism.

And you don't have to restrict your food or calorie intake to reap the benefits.

Personally, I have been practicing my own version of intermittent fasting for many months now and couldn't be happier. I eat 2 1/2 slices of stone ground kamut bread from Joseph's Organic Bakery for breakfast. This is called Morning Bread (Pat Shacharit) as recommended by the Talmud (Bava Metzia 107). For lunch I'll eat cooked veggie soup with kamut bread, quinoa, or kasha and green salads, chicken soup or meat etc... I eat as much as I want, I just try to end my last meal by 8 pm. After 8 pm if I'm very hungry I'll eat a light salad or vegetable soup. No grains, rice, oil, or chicken. The key for me is to keep food intake to a minimum at night.

I'm not as strict as other people, yet I have seen amazing results. The stubborn pounds just fell off after I started doing intermittent fasting combined with morning bread. (Even though I only had 15 pounds to lose, It seems like I lost more because I lost a few inches off my waist). A big part of my weight loss transformation was eating Pat Shacharit (morning Bread) based on the Gemara. The stone ground bread kamut bread is the only bread I eat in the morning, as it is literally the healthiest bread you can find. It helps my digestion, gives me energy throughout the day, and greatly aided my weight loss.

Intermittent fasting is all about giving the body a chance to heal and reboot. It may seem hard at first, but it becomes easier with time. If you're like me and cannot fast completely, then a light salad or vegetable soup will carry you through the night.
