Intermittent Fasting Cons: 4 Things To Look Out For

4 possible cons of intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting has started to grow with popularity over the past few years.  Here is one important thing to understand about this  program, Intermittent fasting is known as a diet, which it is technically not it is a schedule of eating . Like anything, before you delve into this there are some intermittent fasting cons you should be a wear of, specifically 4 of them.

Before we look at these intermittent fasting cons let’s look at intermittent fasting. There are a lot of people out there who are not sure what it is we are talking about.

So what is intermittent fasting?

It’s not as much a method of weight loss as it is a schedule of eating. Within this schedule they use fasting. The objective is to have periods of time when the body is in the fed state and in a fasting state.

This schedule of eating has a lot of benefits associated with fasting. However there are some Internet fasting cons that you need to watch out for.

1) Adrenal fatigue

As far as intermittent fasting cons adrenal fatigue can do you a lot of harm, more harm than good. Adrenal fatigue is a direct result of the adrenal glands functioning below normal levels. If you are suffering from adrenal fatigue you have a reduce stimulation problem. With this problem you could become dependent on stimulants to help you get going each day and sometimes during the day. Adrenal fatigue will increase your stress levels which can cause sleep disruption, and  weight gain. Anytime you have a drop in your immune system this can cause you to become sick more easily. This particular side effect largely goes unnoticed.

2)Eating disorders

With intermittent fasting cons the second one can be more critical and it has to do with people having eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia.

This is possibly the worst method of weight loss with somebody that is susceptible to those eating disorders that you can try.

3) Hard on people demanding work schedules

Another one of the intermittent fasting cons is the problem with muscle breakdown and the more obvious one no energy. Even just a rigorous exercise program can cause some of these problems.
There are a lot of research studies that have shown working-out in a fasting state can accelerate muscle break-down and there is other research that shows the opposite, that it helps build muscle. Try it and see what it does for you?

4) Intermittent fasting as a weight loss program .

If you try to loss fat or weight with intermittent fasting alone it is going to be very slow process that demands discipline and consistency in order to work. If you’re really serious about making your life change about what you’re eating? This program will ideally be great for you and help you to maintain a healthy body weight.

 Overcoming these intermittent fasting cons to see if this is for you?

If you are going to try the intermittent fasting as part of your weight loss program you want to make sure that these intermittent fasting cons will not be a problem.

There is nobody that knows your physical history better than you. There’s nobody that knows your body better than you. The more you intermittent fast the better you will know your body, guaranteed.

The one thing I can tell you from experience with intermittent fasting, and I know this sounds hokey but it does help you get in touch with your physical self. That is the total opposite of intermittent fasting cons.

If you do have a history of the eating disorders there are a lot of different options out there for you especially if you are dead set on doing it. First get medical advice and find a Dr. and work with him.

I think one of the intermittent fasting cons is that being on any diet you have to have self control and this one’s a little bit harder. As you come off a fast, it can be very easy to binge. You have to remember just because you are successful on your fast that you just can’t turn around in compensate yourself by pigging out, or eating crap.

At last like anything else, It’s your baby, what are you going to do.

The name of the game is consistency just like anything you want to be successful at!

After you’ve worked with intermittent fasting for a while you may want to add a diet to it like a low carb program. There really are so many different directions that you can take with this program. It makes it interesting different and fun.
