INTERVAL FASTING #6 – Discipline

Today a short treatise, which is clearly the most important thing in any kind of fasting at all, discipline.

Most of us, who have no or no significant success, say first of all „I don’t know why I don’t lose weight, I do everything right“.

And when you start asking questions, you quickly realize that „they cheat“ and maybe not even fully aware of it, but they just do it and talk themselves into it and don’t even check that it is their own fault that they don’t have any positive results.

They simply lack the necessary discipline to do the whole thing seriously and actually.

There the chamfering phase is shortened sometimes, which one had planned with excuses, like „my husband comes so late home, I do not want to let him, sit alone at the table.“

Or „me is before the television always so boring, there I needed something to eat and it were only carrots etc.“.

In principle you can book this under „excuse“, because first of all you can also sit down at the table with a tea and don’t have to eat out of „sympathy“ and sitting in front of the TV is often no reason to eat.

Apart from the fact that you often spend your time in front of the TV without any sense of purpose. Above all, please, you are bored in front of the TV and instead of turning it off, you go and get something to eat? What kind of logic is that? Well, never mind.

Anyway. But exactly these people are the ones who tell me „I haven’t lost any weight.

I don’t know what I did wrong.

“ Simply my friend, you have no discipline. You really believe that your excuses don’t cause any harm and you don’t take it seriously because the end of your comfort zone is not yet reached!“

You’re not doing too badly yet, even with umpteen kilos too much.

You still make excuses for your failure instead of admitting,that it is your own comfort zone that you don’t want to leave.

You haven’t thought enough about what you really want and how you want to achieve it and you thought fasting would be easy.

Discipline is something you have to work for!

As a child, you still have this discipline when it comes to learning to walk or other things, the older you get, the harder you have to work to regain this discipline.

Nobody may say that fasting is simple and easy!

No, that is not it.

You have to keep in mind that our body has raised us for years or even decades and now we want to turn the tables on it and demand that it does what we want.

We have to be aware that he might not want to do that, because he likes his food in front of the TV or his food at midnight.

We have to regain control and this requires discipline, which some people have to fight back with great effort.

Therefore it is also advisable to start under medical or therapeutic control.

And not to declare it a simple walk in the park.

Above all also nourishing advisors can provide you a purposeful nourishing plan, with which you can avoid also the traps, which can consequences.

In addition once again a detailed blog in the next days.

Stay healthy and tell us what you have experienced.

Intervall Fasting #5 – Benefits, disadvantages

Today we come to the advantages or disadvantages, if I find some that interval fasting has compared to other types of diet or even diets.

Benefits of interval fasting

  • what I personally like best is the fact that you can basically eat everything during the meal breaks, as well as that you don’t have to change to a completely new way of eating.
  • You can choose yourself, the variant that best suits you. Whether it’s just dinner cancelling 3 times a week, fasting 2 days a week and eating the rest of the week or fasting, on self-selected days between 12 and 20 hours.
  • With a manageable time window, it is easy to plan what you eat and you can prepare your food in advance.
  • You can stay flexible without having a bad conscience, because you don’t have to count Kcal or points or whatever.
  • If you extend the fasting phase, you simply extend the meal phase and vice versa.
  • Fasting relieves the body and the longer you fast, the better the body can repair itself – autophagy is called that.
  • Those who fast will find that from a certain moment they will have much more energy, because the body can set new priorities, as it will be much more relieved in terms of digestive processes.
  • The immune system is improved as the body will repair itself very well during the fasting phases.
  • Hot hunger attacks become less or disappear completely with increasing discipline – as the body will better control insulin levels, as blood sugar levels are no longer exposed to constant fluctuations.
  • Insulin resistance is thus prevented, I know many diabetics who have been able to significantly reduce their medications because the body has reacted very well to fasting.
  • Oxidative stress in the cells is reduced – this allows the body to heal inflammation better and you feel generally, at some point much better – some even call it anti-aging program.
  • The body can break down fat and repair the liver better – our liver can regenerate as well as you can imagine, but it needs our help.
  • With fasting, we reduce hormonal roller coaster rides and thus also fluctuations in the body that affect our health.
  • Our brains can repair and reconnect better, which will be beneficial to our mental health.
  • With a body that can and will repair itself very well, medical measures are much better than if we continue to overexploit.

These are the advantages that spontaneously come to mind. This list is not complete and extensible.

Fasting also has a positive effect on the muscles, but I am still a little ignorant.

Disadvantages of interval fasting / Exclusion criteria

  • It requires, especially for beginners, despite everything really discipline and readiness! change his lifestyle in favor of fasting!
  • It can be again and again that you want to cheat, so you fast much less and eat tons for it, because you think the fasting phase regulates this already – no! Excessive calorie intake can actually cause you not to decrease or get fitter.
  • So it can and will be advisable to think about your diet!
  • Those who rely only on the fasting phase and continue to feast unrestrainedly will have no success.
  • You can be mercilessly overwhelmed because you are over-motivated, then the whole thing may backfire!
  • Fasting is only suitable for people who are mentally able to understand the whole thing at all! So neither for young or younger children, or for people with physical illnesses or the elderly with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
  • Pregnant women should not fast, nor should breastfeeding. But as soon as one is fed or the child is only partially breastfed, one can think about moderate versions of fasting.
  • If you have a serious illness or are dependent on regular medication, you should definitely discuss the whole thing with a doctor BEFORE, whether he can and can fast at all and above all, if so – how.
  •  

My experiences and conclusion

Let’s face it, interval fasting is nothing for people who want quick success in playful form

Whoever wants to fast MUST be aware that it will not be a walk, especially at the beginning.

It really requires discipline, consistency and perseverance.

If you don’t have that and don’t have control over your body and mind, you won’t, or you’re very hard to do that, and you’re going to have success.

He will start cheating step by step until he realizes he has achieved nothing, except maybe even to gain weight.

JOJO effect?

Definitely! Those who have managed to reach their desired weight and fall back into old habits will soon be back and probably even faster than expected, at their starting weight or even weighing even more.

Accustomation effect?

There also seems to be interval fasting, which means that our body has then become accustomed to fixed times and we can no longer expect any special advances.

This would be the ideal time to change the whole thing, right down to other fasting times and possibly the inclusion of more exercise up to sports or strength training.
