Intermittent fasting with the OFFSET plan
5 tips on how to learn to keep your hunger-full rhythm
Hey Pretty, you're wondering: What's the point of intermittent fasting, does it have anything to do with mathematics and if so, how many? It's completely clear that your head is smoking with all the weight loss methods. We explain what intermittent fasting is and how you can combine it with the OFFSET plan. Ready, OFFSET, Go!
1. Take a break
The constant glance at the clock is inevitable when you know that you can't eat again for 16 hours. And then you only have 8 hours to strengthen yourself with your two main meals. Your stomach is growling while you eat. But does it have to be intervals with endlessly long breaks in eating? Not with the OFFSET plan!
2. Intermittent Fasting Plan B: The OFFSET Plan
To lose weight, the body needs time in which to burn calories. Eating breaks are important for this. With the OFFSET plan, a break of 4 to 5 hours between meals is sufficient. You should not eat more than three meals a day in total, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner, as is well known. Easy, right?
3. No snacks in between
Snacks are great and are often the friendliest waving off the shelves, but they can also get in the way of your goals! Avoid these little sins during the OFFSET plan in the intervals between meals and hey presto you've already saved countless calories and given your body even more time to burn fat!
4. Don't forget to drink
If you want to grab a delicious bar of chocolate or a greasy bag of crisps to bridge the interval breaks, you better direct your hand to the water glass. Drinking is not only very healthy, but also satisfies the feeling of hunger. Are you bored of water? Then give your water glass the fruity Infused Water update and treat yourself to a bit of a refreshing taste in between. Herbal teas, mint tea or ginger tea and coffee without milk and sugar are also your little helpers to prevent food cravings during the OFFSET plan. After getting up and before going to bed, a glass of water or a cup of tea also helps to strengthen your intermittent fasting.
5. Stop being hangry
No-Go Number One: You don't have to starve to lose or maintain your weight. Deliberate breaks in eating, such as with intermittent fasting with the OFFSET plan, are enough to give the body time to burn fat. However, you should eat 3 balanced meals a day in order to provide him with all the nutritional values. We don't want him to go into emergency mode and fall back on fat reserves. Don't skip the dinner!
6. Find your own rhythm
Many cooks spoil the broth and many opinions spoil your personal well-being. So listen to your body and find your own personal intervals. Only you know when you are hungry and when you are full. So arrange your 3 meals according to your daily routine and make sure not to eat outside of your eating intervals. If you want to know how much your body uses per day and how many calories you can eat per meal to burn off during the breaks, you can simply enter your information in our calorie calculator.
