24 Hour Fasting For Weight Loss (This Might Be The Fastest Way To Lose Weight)


What’s up guys! Carlo Macapinlac here from NewbieFitnessAcademy.com. I help busy professionals look good shirtless
so they can feel more confident and get the most out of their lives. And in this video, I’m gonna show you how
to do a 24 hour fasting for weight loss and what kind of results you should expect. If you’re new to the channel, make sure
you hit that subscribe button to get notified every time I post a new video every week. Alright, let’s dive in. Okay, there are many reasons why you should
do 24 hour intermittent fasting and I talk about this more in detail in my other videos
but here are some 24 hour fast benefits: It decreases triglyceride levels and inflammation,
decreasing your risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome
You get better blood sugar and insulin regulation It’s muscle sparring, it increases your
metabolism and growth hormones It increases mental clarity and overall health
And lastly, you lose weight. A lot of weight. And I always say that weight loss might be
the least impressive benefit of taking a break from eating when you see all the other improvements
in your bio markers. So, a 24 hour fast results typically lasts
from dinner to dinner. At least that’s the most popular way of
doing it for a lot of people. For example, if you eat dinner at let’s
say 7 pm, you 24 hour fast until the next day until 7 pm. You don’t technically go a full day without
eating which is nice. This method of 24 hour intermittent fasting
has several important advantages compared to a shorter fast. First, as a longer fast, it tends to be a
little more effective. I usually recommend a 16 hour fast as the
bare minimum because most of the benefits of fasting happens after that 16 hour mark. Also, because you still eat every day, medications
that need to be taken with food can still be taken. Another advantage of a 24 hour intermittent
fasting is that it’s easily incorporated into everyday life. Most people, for example will eat dinner with
their family every day. Right? Dinner is also the time when people go out
and socialize. So how would this look on a typical 9-5 workday? Well, when you wake up, you can start the
day off with a cup of coffee or tea. Most people actually aren’t hungry when
they wake up. It’s just been ingrained in our heads through
brilliant food advertising that you have to eat first thing in the morning. You don’t. You can work through lunch and maybe have
another cup of coffee around that time or you can use your lunch time as an opportunity
to workout. Then you finish work, maybe run some errands,
then you get home and break your fast when you eat dinner with your family. If your goal is to lose weight, in my one-on-one
coaching program, the Lean Body System, I’ll usually recommend this schedule of 24 hour
fasting for weight loss to be done twice a week. A lot of people find it so simple they’ll
often do it three or four times per week, and sometimes every day. This is often referred to as the one meal
a day results or OMAD results for short. If you wanna know more about doing OMAD diet,
i’m gonna put a link to one of my videos somewhere at the top here. Okay, it’s one thing to talk about a 24
hour fast results but it’s another thing to actually do it. So here’s what a typical day of doing a
24 hr fasting results looks like for me. Okay, here’s my food diary if you wanna
know exactly what I’m eating. And if we look at the macronutrient composition
of this meal, it’s 73% fat, 21% protein, and 6% carbs. It’s a ketogenic meal. It allows my body to stay in ketosis which
means that my body stays in fat burning mode. And if you’re trying to lose weight, that’s
exactly what you want. I’m gonna put a link somewhere at the top
here if you wanna know more about the benefits of combining intermittent fasting and the
keto diet. Okay, overall I lost 2 lbs in a span of 24
hour fast. And I don’t have a lot of weight to lose. Which means that your weight loss numbers
could even be higher. Okay, here are five tips to set you up for
success when you do a 24 hour fasting for weight loss: Water is your best friend. This kinda goes without saying but if you’re
going without food for most of the day, then you need to stay hydrated
Salt is your other friend. Add a pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt to
a glass of water to keep your electrolytes in balance. This prevents dehydration and headaches. Drink black coffee. Coffee is a powerful appetite suppressant
so it’s literally the perfect drink when you fast. If you don’t like coffee, you can drink
tea or basically anything that’s zero calories like soda water. Stay busy. You only get hungry when you think about food. Boredom is your enemy when you’re fasting. As you can see from my day, it’s jam packed
with activities. Try to keep yourself occupied especially during
times when you would normally eat. Control your environment. This goes without saying but don’t torture
yourself by spending time in environments where there’s food around you. Stay away from restaurants, the kitchen, and
people eating food next to you. Eat enough food. Once you break your fast, you need to eat
to satiation. You don’t need to diet on top of your 24
fast. Listen, will you get hungry during your 24
hour fasting for weight loss? Absolutely. If you’re new to fasting, it’s perfectly
normal. But you’re not gonna die. 90% of your struggles when you fast will take
place in your head. I think that’s the other underrated benefits
of fasting in that it really changes your relationship with food. So many people are addicted to eating. But if you stick to 24 hour intermittent fasting
and really give it some time to work it’s magic, the results are absolutely worth it. It can be downright life changing. Now if you’re someone who’s being struggling
with your weight loss efforts for years, you know, you’ve tried every diet under the
sun, you’ve cut the calories, you workout every day but you just can’t seem to lose
weight? Or maybe you’re feeling stuck because you’ve
hit a weight loss plateau and you can’t seem to get out of it, you feel like life
is just passing you by and you’re missing out on opportunities, and you realize that

    I’ve done some research and Carlo was involved in a horrible car accident many years ago that left him disfigured and crippled. He spent the next decade learning to code and has created this attractive avatar to guide our fitness and health journey. A few years ago he founded Anonymous before he lost interest exposing corruption at the highest levels and decided to focus on his dual passions of health and Nazi memorabilia.
