Flexible and virtually unbreakable, the modern intermittent fasting diet is a serious game changer and is quickly becoming one of the lifestyle choices of 2022
When it comes to ‘the next best thing’, the diet industry takes the cake (or resists it!). Every January, we see a bombardment of advertising, with the latest fad being promoted alongside the same, tired old methods we’ve all tried before.
It can be difficult to stay motivated when the diet or exercise method you choose if simply too hard to stick to, too costly or time consuming, or just plain makes you miserable.
Yet the problem only tends to escalate over time. Without a change to lifestyle, excess weight continues to creep up. It can cause major stress to the body, including lethargy, joint problems, diabetes and a whole host of other serious illnesses.
Then there’s the emotional and mental strain. Many people who are overweight report feeling like a failure, and see themselves as old and unattractive. It can seriously affect a person’s confidence and sense of well-being.
People have waited in vain every year for that magic cure, wishing this very complex problem had an easy answer, but despite a plethora of false promises, it had eluded them.
There needed to be a new player in this tired old game.
And so entered intermittent fasting.
When this revolutionary idea first hit the mainstream, it was instantly popular, yet some people balked at the idea, seeing it as ‘starving yourself’ for 2 days a week. However, the truth is that intermittent fasting is actually just part-time dieting which means you fast then feast.
On the other 5 days a week, you can pretty much eat whatever you want which makes the diet very much part-time and virtually unbreakable. For example, if you accidentally blow the 500 cal allowance on a fast day, you can simply make that a non-fast day and change your fasting until tomorrow. Or any other day of the week. It’s that simple.
The game changer for intermittent fasting in 2022 is even more exciting. Multiple methods have evolved, each as effective as the other, and the online program SuperFastDiet has narrowed them down to the 3 most popular, doable methods.
The best thing about having a choice of 3 is that you can mix them up and not get bored, making this a long-term lifestyle change rather than a ‘diet’.
The 3 models are:
- 2 day fast: eat 500 calories 2 days a week, eat normally the other 5 days
- 3 day fast: eat 1000 calories 3 days a week, eat normally the other 4 days
- Part day fast (or 16:8): Eat 1600 calories a day, every day, in an 8 hour window
The flexibility of this new 3 choice model makes it the perfect solution for people who are sick of following the same old routine; who don’t want to rely on pre-packaged meals or adhere to a punishing exercise regime or a strict, calorie-controlled diet, every day.
It isn’t time consuming either! In fact the fasting days are easier than a normal day to plan for, and you don’t have to outlay for extra diet supplements/gadgets/meals, making it economical too.
It just becomes…life.
And people lose weight quickly, easily and keep it off because of that lifestyle adoption.
The modern intermittent fasting diet suits our modern, constantly changing world because people can change their method to suit their current situation – whether that’s more time spent at home, more time spent on the road, restrictions/non-restrictions – there’s a fasting method to fit in to all the living patterns life might throw at you.
There is an answer to losing weight in 2022, and it’s a lifestyle filled with choice. Doesn’t that just change the game.
