Some of us have tried diets and intermittent fasting but when Ramadan comes you may have no choice but to fast. Maybe carrying a little extra weight is normal for you but when you start fasting you will see the pounds fall off. The question many people want to know the answer to is: Is fasting effective for weight loss? The answer depends on good scientific advice.
Fasting and eating less
Conventional wisdom on weight loss is to eat less or exercise more. The fact is, fasting is unlikely to result in long-term weight loss. There can be a short term weight loss, which would need consistent effort for maintenance. Fasting may sometimes even lead to longer-term weight gain if not done right. The biggest challenge with fasting as a weight loss strategy is that it is hard to maintain. You may also be missing out on essential nutrients. Your body will be low on energy, and this may cause you to crave high-fat and high-sugar foods. Hunger pangs may also upset your mood, and make you irritable. Eventually this can lead you to eating food that is not part of a healthy, balanced diet with more calories than you need, causing weight gain.
So is a crash course in exercise a good way to lose weight? Not according to many nutrition scientists. In fact excessive, or explosive, exercise can damage your heart. To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. This can be achieved by eating less, moving more or, best of all, a combination of both. Try regular, gentle exercise while you are fasting to help you to manage your weight and age gracefully.
