From time to time I talk to people who started doing Intermittent Fasting with the goal to loss weight, but they don’t know how and why it works. Moreover, they are not even interested to gain this understanding.
I strongly disagree with this approach to Intermittent Fasting. Without such understanding it’s difficult to stick with Intermittent Fasting in the long run because you can lose your motivation very quickly.
Also, without knowing what you are doing you and why fasting works you don’t know what to adjust to keep losing fat when the weight loss plateaus.
Instead strive to understand how and why fasting works by reading books, papers and videos that explain scientific basis of the fasting.
- Books by Gin Stephens, Jason Fung, Benjamin Bikman, Mark Mattson are a good place to start
- YouTube videos by the same authors
- Scientific papers about Intermittent Fasting (Time Restricted Eating) at PubMed
