Fat bastard special: working towards dropping an adult man worth of extra weight using cardiologist-recommended 18:6 intermittent fasting S2E23

Morbid obesity is a condition in which you have a body mass index (BMI) higher than 35. BMI is used to estimate body fat and can help determine if you are at a healthy body weight for your size. BMI is not a perfect measurement but it does help give a general idea of ideal weight ranges for height.

Adults with a BMI of 30 to 39.9 are considered obese. Adults with a BMI greater than or equal to 40 are considered extremely obese. Anyone more than 100 pounds (45 kilograms) overweight is considered morbidly obese.

These ranges of BMI are used to describe levels of risk:

  • Overweight (not obese), if BMI is 25.0 to 29.9.

  • Class 1 (low-risk) obesity, if BMI is 30.0 to 34.9.

  • Class 2 (moderate-risk) obesity, if BMI is 35.0 to 39.9.

  • Class 3 (high-risk) obesity, if BMI is equal to or greater than 40.0.

Intermittent fasting, also known as intermittent energy restriction, is an umbrella term for various meal timing schedules that cycle between voluntary fasting and non-fasting over a given period. Methods of intermittent fasting include alternate-day fasting, periodic fasting, and daily time-restricted feeding.

What happens to your body when you fast 18 6? “Evidence is accumulating that eating in a six-hour period and fasting for 18 hours can trigger a metabolic switch from glucose-based to ketone-based energy, with increased stress resistance, increased longevity, and a decreased incidence of diseases."

The study found that both an 18-hour and 20-hour fasting window worked equally well for weight loss by helping participants eat less without counting calories.

With 19:5, you fast for 19 hours a day and have an eating window of five hours.

Researchers say intermittent fasting diet can affect the way body burns and stores fat and energy. Researchers are touting a diet that involves fasting for 18 hours each day as a way to stop getting overweight and reducing the chances of contracting everything from cancer to diabetes and heart disease.

Experts suggest that a person needs to follow the basic rules for at least 10 weeks to witness some positive results. Following the diet properly for this period of time will help you shed 3 to 5 kilos of weight (depending on your BMR).
