Is the pressure of being on a diet wearing you down? Tired of restrictions week after week? In that case, this article is for you. Let’s talk fasting!

With Lifesum you can follow two meal plans: Fasting 2 days per week or 1 day per week. It can sound hard, but keep reading. The first you need to know is that fasting does not make you feel exhausted or things like that if you do it right. In fact, quite the opposite, making you feel energized over time.

Still not convinced? Read on:

Fasting also increases life expectancy and improves brain function. Fasting also boosts your immune system, can prevent acne and improve the quality of your skin.  

Curious? Download the Lifesum app and let’s go:

Fasting two days per week

This is a simple way to lose weight, where you only need to be strict with your diet for two days per week. While fasting, stick to food high in protein and low in carbs, such as vegetables, fruit or fish. During the non-fasting days, you can eat whatever you want, in moderation.

With the 2-Day Diet, you lose weight without having to go hungry. This is the ideal plan for people who do not deal well with strict diets.

With Lifesum, you can cook a lot of delicious meals both for both fasting and non-fasting days. If you overeat when you’re not fasting days, it will be hard to maintain the weight loss, however. Remember, regular exercise is a great ally and can boost your efficiency. Following the Lifesum meal plans will bring all the benefits above and more.

Fasting 1 day a week

Try even less and still lose weight. It similarly to the two-day plan, but here you need pay a little more attention to sugar and fatty foods during the other six days. Remember that if you do the one-day fasting plan, the results may take a little longer to appear, but it does not mean that they are not coming.

One final tip: Before starting a fasting diet, it’s always a good idea to talk to your nutritionist. Good luck!
