Fasting For Dieting

Introduction And Background
A lot of people fast. Some people fast because their doctor told them to do so before a major surgery to be taken place. Some people fast for religious purposes while some people fast to check their blood sugar levels and see whether or not there are in the diabetic range or if there is something to be worried about. And of course, some fast for dieting. Those who diet consider fasting one of the perfect ways to diet but is it really? Read on further to find out whether or not you should fast for dieting and what the benefits of fasting are.

Why Fasting For Dieting Is Good
Some people say that fasting is not good and that you do not get the appropriate nutrients. Some say that fasting is not good because it can make one become dehydrated. Here is the counter argument for both these arguments. Fasting is good for dieting because if you are carefully covering your nutrients in the meals you eat, there is nothing to be worried about. It depends on you and you alone. If when you are eating, you are eating a bag of chips only, you cannot blame fasting for this! Fasting is actually pretty good for dieting. You reduce the appetite and we certainly know how essential and vital that is for weight loss. It also ensures that we do not snack in-between meals and stick to our diet strictly. Dehydration is also the same way. No one is telling you not to drink water when you are allowed to do so! You should find time to drink eight to twelve glasses of water daily, even if you have to drink all of them during the night. Keep yourself hydrated. That is again your job, not the job of the fast!

You Are Not Undergoing ‘Starvation Mode’
A lot of people think that fasting means that you are starving yourself and starvation diets are not good for the health at all. Well, fasting does not mean you are undergoing starvation mode. In fact, you are not even starving yourself. You can easily eat what you have planned on eating after dark. You can fulfill all your nutrients this way. You are not starving yourself, this would mean that you are not eating anything for the entire twenty four hours. And you know it isn’t this way.

Benefits Of Fasting
There are numerous benefits of fasting. You’d be surprised to hear some of them. Fasting is actually something all of us should sometime in our life. It is beneficial to our health and we can literally cleanse our body this way. Here are a few benefits of fasting that you should know about:

  • Fasting can bring about weight loss. You might have known this benefit already but since it is the one that is highlighted in this article, it deemed prudent to explain it again. Controlled fasting that is done for a couple of hours have been shown to burn fat faster than normal or regular way of dieting. And who can say no to fast weight loss?
  • Did you know that fasting has evidently shown a positive effect on the insulin in our body? This means that the amount of carbohydrates in the body is better dealt with if we are fasting than if we are not fasting. A lot of diabetic patients are taking up methods of fasting in a different manner to improve their insulin sensitivity.
  • It is untrue what they say about fasting decreasing the metabolic rate. In fact, it is the opposite! Fasting actually makes the metabolic rate even faster! Your digestive system is in a resting state when you are fasting which means that the body can concentrate on cellular activity thoroughly and this can enable you to burn more calories than normal, especially from the fat reserves which means that you are probably losing weight!
  • Fasting can help curb the appetite. It has been told that those who fast have a very thorough control over their hunger issues and are better able to diet than those who do not fast. This means that you should be thinking about fasting seriously if you want to do your dieting seriously.
  • Your brain system, your immune system, all of it is improved by fasting. Your body is not facing any inflammation while you are fasting and your brain is producing a protein which boosts brain function.

Conclusion
Fasting for dieting is the perfect way to go about your diet. Other than appetite suppression, there are numerous other benefits you will get from fasting if you do it seriously. Many people are taking up fasting for dieting and they have emerged successful, commenting on the fact that appetite suppression was easy to get a hold of this way.
