If you’re looking for a quick way to lose weight, intermittent fasting on a keto diet is definitely a good look.
When I gave this powerful fat burning combination a try, I lost a total of 75 pounds and did it in a way that didn’t have me starving and dreaming about food like other diets have.
There’s something really cool that happens when you eat a keto diet that makes intermittent fasting a breeze.
That’s how I was able to “melt” like I did and below I lay out what I did to lose 75 pounds and burn fat with intermittent fasting and a keto diet.
Cut out the keto snacks
To transition to intermittent fasting, I had to give up the keto snacking and begin by eating 3 meals a day.
Eventually, I went down to two meals a day and then needing one meal a day with the second meal being optional.
My appetite decreased big time and cravings went away. Soon, I felt like I was forcing myself to eat so started not finishing my meals. I say this is my body naturally decreasing my caloric intake too.
Decrease how often you eat on a keto diet by cutting out keto snacking. This will help you ease into intermittent fasting.
Plan meals to eat enough calories and macros in less meals
Since you’ll be eating less frequently, you’re going to want to learn how to eat more calories in fewer meals.
This can easily be done by planning your keto meals and then eating half of that planned in one meal and the other half in the second meal.
And the calories don’t have to be split up eveningly in meals either. Like, you don’t need 700 calories in one meal and another 700 in another.
Just get your calories and macros in and that can be 1000 calories for your first meal and another 400 calories for dinner for a total of 1400 calories in a day.
Keep keto meals for fat loss simple AF
Simple meal combinations of meat, primarily animal fats, and low-carb veggies has made keto super simple especially for weight loss.
It’s easier to track, easier to plan, and easier to manage especially if you have a busy schedule and not a lot of time to cook.
While keto recipes are cool, I’ve found the fancy ones can overcomplicate and extend a process that really doesn’t have to be as complicated or last as long as it does. It’s hard to be exact about what macros you’re getting in portions of recipes and if you’re eating enough calories.
Weight loss with intermittent fasting on a keto diet can be such a simple and quick process when the meals are simple and straight up because of how easy it is to keep an eye on what’s being eaten and how much.
Meat, healthy fats, and low-carb veggies for the win. At least when on a weight loss routine and looking to burn fat. Keep it simple.
Eat earlier instead of later in the day
Although I hear a lot of talk about skipping breakfast, I still value my breakfast and what fasting in the evenings has done for my weight loss.
I’ve gotten the best results when I made sure to go to bed on an empty stomach or at least not eat within 2 hours of my bedtime.
The weight loss was so good actually that I woke up to my waist beads being too big overnight.
What I’ve learned about sleep is this is when the body is regenerating and repairing. Giving the body the task to also digest during this time can hinder that regeneration and repair.
That’s why I don’t eat at night. Rather this is true or not, I have experienced better weight loss, a better mood, a healthier appetite, and better digestion when I fast afternoon, evenings and nights.
I highly recommend giving night fasting a try if you can.
