Avoid This Big Mistake That Can Cause Weight Gain
It's natural that after feeling so hungry while fasting, once your eating window begins, you're going to want to gorge yourself with all your favorite foods. Eating too much too soon is bound to make you feel sick, cause bloating (or worse digestive issues), and, like me, end up causing weight gain.
Have your first meal planned out so the minute your eating window begins, you'll have a healthy, perfectly-portioned meal waiting for you. Make sure it includes your favorite foods so you're not left feeling unsatisfied.
Also avoid these mistakes when intermittent fasting:
- Giving up too soon: Intermittent fasting takes a certain amount of discipline and a period of time where you may not feel good or see results. Unless you're experiencing medical issues, stick with it for at least a month before throwing in the towel.
- Eating too little during your eating window: If you don't eat enough, you'll feel especially hungry the next day, which can cause you to overeat.
- Eating the wrong foods: Skip the junk and get your fill of protein, healthy fats, fiber, and complex carbs. This will satiate you longer, continue to help you build muscle, maintain a healthy brain, and just make you feel more energetic and happier overall.
