    Most of you have heard about intermittent fasting and you've probably heard that fasting can help you burn fat, lose some weight, and be more productive throughout the day while still enjoying bigger more satisfying meals, but most of you probably don't know that if you set up your intermittent fasting plan incorrectly it can make you fatter rather than leaner. So today I want to go over 5 of the top intermittent fasting mistakes so you can avoid them and get the fastest results possible. And the last mistake is one you've probably never even considered so make sure you stick with me through this video. The very first mistake i want to go over has to do with people's lack of patience. So many people start fasting and all they can think about is how badly they want to lose weight or body fat and what's quickest way to do it. So what they do is they spend the whole day or part of the day not eating and then finally when they're feeding window arrives and they're finally allowed to eat they still try to severely restrict calories. One of my favorite things about fasting is that it teaches you how to listen to your body and how to eat normally without having to think about every last calorie. This is what allows fasting to be an appropriate lifestyle dieting approach for the long run. Fasting allows you to reteach your body how to stop eating when you're full. But a lot of people that think that they're going to get results faster continue to deprive themselves of food even when they're allowed to eat. Not only is this physically stressful on your body but it's also extremely mentally stressful on your willpower and your mind. In the long run this is completely unsustainable and will most likely lead you to a big bad binge. And binging can lead you into a downward spiral that causes you to regain all the body fat that you might have lost from fasting. To prevent this make sure you allow yourself to eat sensible options all the way until you're full. As long as you're having real natural single-ingredient foods you'll feel full long before you go over your total daily alloted calories. Of course there is the issue of going to far in the opposite direction and thats what leads us to Mistake number two which is definitely one of the worst mistakes you can make and that's binging as soon as your fasting window has ended. A lot of you especially if you're new to fasting might be sitting there everyday just counting down the seconds until you're finally allowed to eat. During that wait your mind is giving you all kinds of suggestions of what will help you feel full and satisfied as soon as you can eat again and unfortunately most of those suggestions are going to be the junkfood that you've been mentally obssessinh over and craving. Even if you're eating fewer meals per day if you binge and satisfy your unhealthy cravings every time that you eat you won't get much results. But don't worry there are a few simple tips that can help you avoid binging every time you eat. First of all when your brand new to fasting and your first starting off make sure you're tracking your calories and macros to be sure you're not going way over your daily allotted calories. If you don't know what calories and macros you need for fat loss you can use my calorie calculator that I have linked up below. And then after eating you can just plug in everything that you ate and make sure that you didn't go over your totals. What if you don't want to track your calories in your Macros well the second thing you can do is have a meal sitting in the fridge already prepped and ready to go. By having a meal ready you don't have to go through the grueling process of cooking after a long period of fasting because a lot of you will start eating easy to access junk food while cooking your meal. If you start eating junkfood while prepping a healthy meal by the time youre done cooking you'll already wolf down sometimes five hundred all the way up to a thousand calories. So don't tax your will power have the healthy meal ready to go. My last tip to help you with this issue is to actually indulge in your cravings but only after you've already filled up on a healthy meal. Eat your vegetables first followed by...

    To make drinking black coffee easier, up the quality! Paying a little more for higher quality brands like Stumptown and Intelligentsia and using a good coffee brewing method like an aeropress, you can make delicious cups of black coffee that can actually even taste sweet depending on roast and blend. The extra money you spend on the coffee is made up by not buying creamer and such

    12 weeks in, lost 24 pounds!
    I aim for 16/8, but some days I go as far as 19, and the odd/rare day I cheat and only fast 11 hours.
    I don't exercise, but I am challenging myself to be more active; like swimming, walking, using stairs instead of elevator.
    I have a ways to go... I weigh 350 now, but that's WAY better than 374!

    This was extremely helpful for me. My question has been: “Should I eat after my morning workout because of post nutrition benefits?” I am wanting to lose body fat and you answered my debate. Stay to my schedule of fasting. In addition, I should wait to take my BCAA in my feeding window.
    Thank you for the clear explanation and guidance through my IF.

    Anything else but water breaks a true fast. Anything other than water needs to be processed by the kidneys and gut. Adding creamers or having coffee is only related to the simplistic approach of insulin response. Typically Americans have to be told that they can 'cheat" on their fast with zero internal consequence for doing so. Then they wonder why it's not as effective as it should be.

    The only thing I do is taking apple cider vinegar in the morning while fasting for 16hrs, I've lost 2.7kg within 7 weeks. There are days that all I do is drink water, and work out after work, when my fasting period is over and can eat anything

    Don’t have a problem going over my total allotted cal. My problem is not eating enough. I’m used to eating small frequent meals. I have early satiety and I get bloated quite easily.
