The Keto Diet governs what you eat and Intermittent Fasting specifies when you eat.
Combining the two torches fat while retaining muscle mass.
The ketogenic diet has been in mainstream media for some time now, but the latest buzz is all about intermittent fasting, and when these two diet methods are done in tandem the results are greatly amplified.
If you’re wanting a fat-burning surge to your keto lifestyle, intermittent fasting might be just what you need.
Intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet are well known for their weight loss benefits, and other benefits too when followed correctly. Intermittent fasting leads to a number of changes in the body making it easier to burn fat and to help boost your metabolism.
When you consume food, your body uses the energy from these foods as fuel. During fasting periods your body is not consuming foods, so it will resort to using your stored fat as fuel.
This effect results in fat burning and weight loss.
In recent studies it has been shown that 84% of people who participate in any type of intermittent fasting not only lose weight, but they lose weight faster than the people who only go on a low carbohydrate diet.
While participating in fasting regimes there is also some evidence that you will hold onto more muscle mass than you would while following most weight loss diets.
