Tips to help you decide on the best method for you

Until you try a fast, you don’t know how your body will react, so pick a method and just do it! The type of fasting that’s right for you may change over time but you have to start somewhere.

  • If you want to ease gradually into fasting and you’re happy to skip breakfast, you could start with a daily ‘eating window’ approach such as the 8-Hour Diet (16:8) and, if necessary, increase the fasting time as required. You can then either keep up with daily fasting or change to two or three days of longer fasts.  Learn more about fasting every day 

  • If you want to combine fasting with muscle building try daily fasting with Leangains or the Warrior Diet. Learn more about fasting every day 

Although intermittent fasting is very flexible and can be changed around to suit you, it’s a good idea to try to keep to the method you’ve chosen for a month or more to see how it affects you. It takes time to adapt to fasting and while some people will show immediate weight loss, for others it can take several weeks. Be patient and allow your body time to adjust to your new way of eating.
