Advantages of intermittent fasting 16: 8

The most obvious benefit is weight loss. In addition to this, there are lots of benefits, many of them well known since ancient times. The fasting periods were often called  "detoxification" but the idea is the same - to refrain from eating for a certain period for health reasons. It was believed that a period of not eating would cleanse the body's system of toxins and rejuvenate them. They were more right than they knew.

Some of the alleged physical benefits of fasting include:

  • More elastic and rejuvenated skin

Fasting offers many unique benefits that you cannot get by different types of diet. Where different diets complicate life, fasting makes it easier. Where diets are expensive, fasting is free. Where diets take time from you so save fixed time. Where diets have varying effects, fasting has a guaranteed effect. There is no more effective method of lowering insulin levels and reducing body weight.

I get hungry when I fast. What can I do?

This is most likely the most common concern that one is afraid of hunger. The truth is that hunger does not last, it comes in waves instead. If you experience hunger, it will pass. Staying busy often helps. Fasting when you are busy at work will make you stop thinking about food. As the body gets used to fasting, it begins to burn its fat stores, and hunger decreases. Many people find that as they continue to fast, hunger decreases rather than increases. During longer fasts, many experience that the hunger disappears completely during the second or third day. There are also many natural products that can help curb hunger. Here are some natural hunger suppressants:


  • Water: Start the day with a large glass of water. Drinking enough fluids prevents hunger. Bubble water can help when your stomach growls a little or with cramps.

  • Green tea is great for people who go on a diet as it is full of antioxidants. The powerful antioxidants can help stimulate metabolism and weight loss.

  • Cinnamon can help curb hunger. It can also help lower blood sugar and thus facilitate weight loss. You can also add cinnamon to your coffee and tea.

  • Coffee: reduces hunger shows studies and this may be related to antioxidants. Both decaffeinated and regular coffee provide greater hunger suppression than caffeine added to water. There is no need to cut back on your coffee consumption, given its many health benefits. The caffeine in coffee can also stimulate the metabolism, and thus help with fat burning. But remember, no sweetening or milk in the coffee during Lent.

  • Chia seeds:  Chia seeds contain highly soluble fiber and omega-3. These seeds absorb water and have a gel-like consistency when soaked in water for more than 30 minutes, which can help curb hunger.
