Quick Tips: Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is a method designed to boost weight loss by shifting when (but not necessarily what) we eat; for example, 5:2 involves drastically restricting calories during two days of the week. To fight the hunger pangs on 5:2, make sure you’re eating plenty of fibre (think wholegrains, fruit and veggies) and lean protein (fish, eggs and chicken are great examples), both of which help keep us feeling fuller for longer. It’s also worth trying different styles of intermittent fasting. For example, 16:8 involves eating within an 8-hour time window without actually changing your calorie intake.
