As summer approaches, a lot of people will try out lots of things to become shredded as soon as possible to get ready for the beach and get rid of all the excess fat accumulated from excessive bulking, too many cheat meals and missed workouts. However, if you are already lean and satisfied with your look and want to maintain it without gaining additional weight, we suggest that you read the 5 tips below on how to reach and maintain a low body weight level throughout the entire year:
1- Intermittent fasting
Intermittent fasting is a type of diet which consists of fasting and non-fasting intervals. For example, you fast for 16 hours but in the remaining 8 hours you eat all of your daily calories. When you do this, growth hormone production is increased as well as fat oxidation which translates to increased fat loss. The more hours you can endure without eating any food, the better results you will get from this diet.
Of course, this does not mean that you should eat less or pig out during the feasting period. You should eat as much as you need in order to maintain a healthy weight. If you cannot do this this, intermittent fasting will not help you and can even decrease your athletic performance and health. As we already said, the main thing here is that you consume all your daily calories in a short time window like 10, 8 or 6 hours and then avoid eating any food until the next “eating window” comes.
