Including Fasting in Your Diet - Is It Safe?

Fasting for weight loss is an attractive option for many people for several reasons such as quick weight loss and detoxification. There are several ways to go about a fasting weight loss program: restricting all foods and having a totally liquid diet, restricting foods only on certain days, or restrict certain food groups for a specific period of time. Some of them are considered as fad diet because it deliver fast result but it is so hard to keep the weight off once you return to your old eating habits.

So, is it safe to use this method as a part of your diet? It is depends on many factors; people with certain health issues such as cancer, diabetes, liver, kidney, or lung disease are not advised to do this kind of program. Pregnant and lactating women are not recommended either, since it can harm both the mother and the baby in various ways. For women who want to lose weight after pregnancy, check how you can do it without harming yourself or the baby at how to lose pregnancy weight.

Otherwise, if you think that you have a fit body, just go for it; one day fast is unlikely to cause any harm to a healthy body, even a little longer fast is still tolerable if you have a fit body.

Before you start on your fasting weight loss program you need to prepare your body and evaluate your lifestyle. Whether you're planning a short fast (anywhere from 5 days to 2 weeks) or a long fast (lasting more than 3 weeks), there are some things you need to keep in mind before you start:

1. It might be best to lay off the physical activity during your fast because making your body work so hard when you are limiting the amount of fuel it gets could lead to problems like headaches and other side effects.

2. Reduce your usual consumption of canned and processed foods, alcohol, caffeine, salt, refined sugar, cigarette, and any foods that cause food allergies and toxic reaction for a few days before start fasting. Cut them off completely all of a sudden will result in headaches, stomachaches, and other discomfort.

3. About a week before you start your fast, slowly decrease the amount of food you eat and increase the time between meals. That way, it will be easier during the fast to control your hunger.

4. Before you start make sure you know everything you will need to do; writing all the instructions down is a good idea. Keep remind yourself of the cause and goals of the project, this will help you to stay away from any desire to quit halfway.

5. Make sure to consult your doctor if you are under 18 or have any chronic health problems.

Usually, this type of fasting can help you lose weight quickly as well as detoxify your body. For 'short complete fasting' program, repeat it over every specific time until you get the results that you're looking for. Remember NOT to extend it more than recommended. Check my recommendation for this type of fasting at how to lose weight in a week. For an extended fast, you should only do it under a doctor supervision.

Another variety is the 'short fast'; it will last only 1 or 2 days. It's difficult to use this type of fast and really achieve good results, thus only a few diet programs can do it. From my experience, this type of fast is the best because it offer less difficulties and have minimum side effects.

There are many variations of fasting weight loss plans where each will offer it's own unique benefits and results. In the hand of knowledgeable dietician, fasting can be a powerful way to attain fast weight loss while keeping the user healthy for his/her everyday’s activities. My top recommendation for fasting diet is a well designed and easily implemented 'short fast' type; check it at Eat Stop Eat Review.
