Is it unhealthy to fast until you have lost like 10 pounds? If I ate only a little bit everyday for a little while can I lose the weight and it it unhealthy? Would I gain it back quickly, even though I am very low carb? I don't want to here anything questions about my weight or weather I eating disorders or anything like that. I don't. So what do you think?
Edit: How long would it take to lost weight the healthy way? Doing intermittent fasting?
You're probably more likely to get a good answer if you ask your question a little more politely. People here are answering questions in good faith in their free time. There's no need to make demands about things you don't want to "here"[sic].
Joe, here's the deal. Intermittent fasting is a good tool for weightloss but it's not something to consider in a vacuum. If you have metabolic issues, IF'ing can be quite hard until those issues are cleared up. I didn't start IF'ing until about 4 months after i started eating paleo and the time period varies from person to person. My parents started IF'ing without problems immediately. Another thing to be on the look out for with IF'ing is the stress you put on your adrenals. So if your sleep isn't on point or consume too much caffeine or are generally stressed, IF'ing probably isn't for you right now. There are other factors also, but i guess what I'm trying to get at is that it's counterproductive to ask a question like this and immediately take out all the other relevant factors that would determine if this is a good course of action for you or not. Just sayin.
The only thing that's really wrong with extended fasting is the % of weight that is muscle loss. Protein Sparing Modified Fasts seem to solve this, so you might want to consider that instead. Maybe paring that with some fasted training. I don't think there is really a way you can get better or faster results. Also, you get to eat, which is awesome. I did water fasts in my raw vegan days, it's not the way to go, I don't care how strong is your willpower. You will regain the weight, it's just how it works.
Read the "Consider Intermittent Fasting" section, partway through the article.
And also you can read this from Mark Sisson: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/fasting/
It's not intermittent fasting if you just stop eating; that's starvation. The most important thing is cutting out fructose. Just eat a bunch of meat, low-fructose starch such as potatoes (if you need carbs) and fat and watch your BF% plummet. Seriously.
It is true to an extent, to lose weight you should includes less saturated fat in your diet. Choose fruits, vegetables, whole grains and plant-based proteins that are a natural source of nutrition and less in calorie density as well.
However, you have to follow a proper diet plan with regular workouts also. You should eat plant-based foods such as fruits, tofu, beans, grains and vegetarian snacks that contain fewer fats and are healthy for our body as well.
