Mere Fasting is Best During Periods of Personal Loss

Some people have a problem with either exercise or diet. Others have a problem with both. These people know what they have to do, but simply cannot motivate themselves to do it. For whatever reason the desire to be more trim is just not strong enough in them.

Often times, this is an existential problem. In the most extreme form it is a question of why bother as one is going to die anyway. In other words, the desire for future gain does not out weigh the pay offs from immediate gratification.

One might expect that this conviction is strongest in older persons, who are nearing the end of their lives. Perhaps they are now in their nineties. These people may once have had a desire to be fit, possibly to attract a future lifelong partner. But this person may have recently passed away. The desire to attract another is simply non-existent

A very similar predisposition can be found in people who are much younger. Even those in their thirties can have a lack of desire to be healthier or more vibrant after the loss of a significant other. One might think that they would be anxious to try again with someone other. However, that desire may take some time to re-emerge.

One of the best things to do in instances such as these is to simply wait before starting a complete health routine. Time is on a younger person’s side and will soon return, causing a renewed will to live. That is not to minimize the pain or sense of devastation which often follows from a younger person’s loss of a loved one. But it is to say that time does heal these type of wounds.

During this period, one should never expect too much. Throwing oneself into a full athletic lifestyle, no matter how advisable, may be just too much. That is why one should merely start by cutting back back in the form of a fast.. Cutting back should be relatively easy as the natural grief processes help in this endeavor.

The most important thing to remember is that self-indulgence is never an answer to one’s misery. Sometimes this is a temptation. But one should never give into as it will only make matters worse. Too often it results in withdrawal by way of decreased happiness with others.

Fasting as an alternative eliminates this self-defeating end. Green tea capsules possibly with an appetite suppressant such as hoodia should be considered to make the entire process much easier. One can then start or resume a full workout and diet program after the depression has run its course.

Losing Weight Through Intermittent Fasting

One of the most frustrating things one can do is losing weight. With all the information and misinformation all over the place on this topic, it is no wonder that many people give a few methods “guaranteed to bring results” and eventually throw in the towel. The best philosophy in this case is: The simpler the program, the better. Simple programs have higher chances of success and fasting is simple because it has no special foods, no hype and no expenses.

Intermittent fasting

What exactly does intermittent fasting mean and why should you even consider in losing weight? Intermittent fasting is a practice of short-term fasting seasons. Each season can last 24 hours and you can fast for one or two seasons in a week. The primary objective of the intermittent fasting is not to ensure that the system is “cleansed” as many people to believe, although it does that too. Its objective is first to reduce the amount of calories that you take in without having to resort to starvation, dieting or other ways to cut down on calories taken in. However, it is not beneficial to fast for one day in a week and eat all the junk food you can find the other six days; to make this plan a success, it has to go hand in hand with healthy eating.

Principle of weight loss

The principle of weight loss is consuming fewer calories than the calories spent. If you fast for two days in a week, you will reduce the amount of calories you consume dramatically and this contributes to your weight loss. This weight loss plan has no crazy and ridiculous meal plans and only demands that you eat food that fit a certain lifestyle and has the right food content. Fasting is neither restrictive nor strenuous compared to other weight loss plans advocated all over. It is very liberating, gives you the power to control your own body and you will achieve your targets of losing weight within a period that it takes to perform most other weight loss plans.

Effectiveness of the fasting weight loss plan

If you lose weight through fasting, your body will automatically adapt to the new lifestyle and the changes can last a lifetime if you wish so. Just like any other weight loss programs, this program will need you to start low and build up. At the beginning, it is normal for the body to show signs of resistance and more craving for the older eating habits but it will only be for a certain period of time. Instead, take the feeling as an opportunity you have to leave behind all the bad eating habits that you had been accustomed to and are now starting a new, fresh chapter of a healthy life.

This program works faster if it is combined with lowly intensive training and exercising programs. If you need to see faster results, you should consider basic exercises during the days that you are not fasting to rapidly increase the amount of calories you are spending. The most vital point to remember about intermittent fasting is that it is not a diet plan that you should follow and drop once you have attained the weight level you desired. It is a lifestyle that you can stick to and have a good healthy living.
