So if you’re having a giant breakfast before your workout you can be hurting yourself as far as the percentage of fat that you can be burning.
Intermittent fasting can solve this problem altogether by working out on an empty stomach and not eating until later on in the day.
Lastly one of my favorite benefits of fasting is that when it is time to eat you are able to get more satisfying meals.
On most diets, dinner time can look extremely boring, but if you plan your macros accordingly this does not at all have to be the case with intermittent fasting.
If you want to have a large enjoyable dinner, you just have to make sure you save up enough calories throughout the day to still not go over you’re weight loss calorie requirements with one or two giant meals.
If you’re only eating two large meals for the day, for example, that means that each meal can have 600 calories and you’ll still only be at 1200 calories.
Which is a very low amount of calories for the day and will have almost anyone losing weight.
If you have a higher number that you can hit and still lose weight like 1500 calories for example that gives you even more room.
That means that if you were to only eat two meals in a 6-8 hour feeding period you can have 750 calories per meal.
Just to give you an idea a meal with 1 cup of mashed potatoes, 214 calories, 5 oz of Salmon steak, 295 calories, 1 cup of broccoli, 31 calories, and 3/4 cup of vanilla ice cream, 102+137 = 240 is about 750 calories.
So, the fact that you can still eat meals that fill you up and make you feel like your actually not dieting is one of my favorite benefits of the intermittent fasting approach.
