Intermittent Fasting For Weight Loss – Made Easy

Have you tried intermittent fasting for weight loss?

Fasting is not a new thing, we’re designed for it. Until relatively recent times in human history eating habits were generally feast or famine. The standard 3 meals per day is a new phenomenon and has become habit for most.


Fasting helps with weight loss, and I like it for other reasons too:

  • It slows down the aging process
  • It speeds up repair processes
  • And of course it increases fat burning

I’m familiar with the 5:2 diet, and it has great health benefits, but it was a no from me. Despite the health benefits it’s not sustainable for me, I just don’t like it, and so I’ve opted for something easier. But the health benefits are even better.

This might work for you too if the 5:2 isn’t sustainable for you either.

Easy Intermittent Fasting For Weight Loss

It is natural to fast over night while you’re sleeping, with a bit of planning it’s easy to extend this a bit longer.

Fasting for 14 hours per day on a regular basis makes a tremendous difference to your health and weight.

Make a start at a 14 hour fast, and when that’s easy extend it. Here’s how:

  • 8 hours covered while you’re in bed
  • Eat your last food at least 2 hours before bed – ideally 3
  • Eat breakfast/brunch 2 – 3 hours after getting up

Water and herbal tea are ok during the fasting time.

I look ahead at the beginning of the week to see where I can comfortably fit this in.

A good technique is taking breakfast with you if it’s a work day, I often take a smoothie.

Tweak around the edges to find something that works for you. Have a go because intermittent fasting for weight loss has so many other health benefits.

Have fun!

  1. I would like to try this Julie. I did this over 30 years ago and my energy levels increased.

    Thanks for the reminder. Will look into the 5:2 diet.
    Not heart of it
