Intermittent fasting is a popular form of dieting. But what is it? And how can it help you lose weight? 

Lifesum, the app that’s helping 40 million users on the journey to better health, has all the answers.

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that regulates intervals of not eating (fasting) and eating.

Rather than state which foods you should eat, fasting focuses on when you should eat. 

Experts say it can have a powerful effect on the body and mind and people all over the world are using it to lose weight and improve their health.

Common intermittent fasting methods are the 5:2 diet which revolves around fasting for two days a week and eating normally the rest of the week.  (within reason, you will still have to avoid sweet treats and junk food) 

The other common fasting diet is 6:1 which means you fast for one day and eat normally for six.

Why will intermittent fasting help you lose weight?

Your weekly calorie consumption will be heavily reduced from your 1 or 2 days of fasting, which contributes to successful weight loss.

When not eating for a certain number of hours, your body has time to clear out rest products from all the normal food you eat, making you feel more energized over time. 

Research also suggests that fasting contributes to longevity by causing cells to repair themselves.

This app is so helpful that I bought the premium version. In this first week of using The Energizer I have lost over 7 pounds!

Seriously, I’ve tried it all. Get this! It’s super easy, and if you want personalized help it’s CHEAP and WORTH EVERY PENNY. I’m a happier, healthier gal.

This is the best app I’ve tried so far. It finds EVERYTHING. The insights are so helpful and have made me more conscious of what I’m eating. The recipes look great, interface is intuitive and user-friendly. I just upgraded to Premium and excited to keep using this app!
