If you want to reduce your extra weight through intermittent fasting, then you should avoid some mistakes.

In today’s time, women follow different diet trends to keep themselves more healthy and in shape. Although many types of diets are in trend for weight loss, but one diet which is most liked is intermittent fasting. It is not only considered good for weight loss, but it is also considered very good for correcting hormonal imbalance. Therefore, this diet is very beneficial for women who have PCOS, PCOD or thyroid related problems.

Intermittent fasting has a special way of calorie intake. Actually, fasting is done for a few hours in this, while the calorie intake is also fixed at a time. For example, during intermittent fasting, you can keep fasting for 12 hours and eat something for 12 hours. Similarly, with the passage of time, the time of fasting window increases and the calorie intake window gets smaller. It is a very effective diet, but you get its benefits only if you do it properly.

It is generally seen that during intermittent fasting, women make some mistakes, due to which they do not get any benefit. So, in this article today, David Abraham, a dietician of RIG Hospital, Central Government Hospital, is telling you about some mistakes made during intermittent fasting, which you should avoid:

Change A Lot

This is the first and biggest mistake. When you are on a normal diet and want to do intermittent fasting after that, then do not try to bring a lot of changes in yourself all of a sudden. For example, some women keep the eating window at the beginning of only 8 hours and their fasting period is 16 hours. But you shouldn’t do that. This can harm your body. 

It would be better if you keep fasting for 12 hours and eating period for 12 hours in the beginning and then gradually see how your body is responding. After that you should gradually shorten the eating period window over a month or two.

Window Time Not Fixed

This is also a common mistake, which people often do. For example, they set their fasting and eating window time, but do not do it at the fixed time. For example, if some people start their day’s eating window at 12 o’clock in the evening and end it at 8 in the evening, then the next day their time starts at 10 and ends at 6 in the evening. In this way, he keeps changing the time according to his convenience, from which he does not get any benefit. 

By doing this, the secretion of hormones in the body is not done properly and then it becomes frustrating in the end. So always keep your window time fixed and eat according to the same routine every day.

Calorie Count Messed Up

Some people also feel that if they are doing intermittent fasting then they can eat anything in their eating window at any time. Although this method is also wrong. Keep in mind that even during this time you have to take care of your calorie count. 

Make sure that you take only the prescribed number of calories every day. Also take it at the appointed time. If you want the best results from intermittent fasting , then you should follow the right kind of diet during the eating window.

We hope that you will take care of these things and do not make these mistakes while doing intermittent fasting.
