Intermittent fasting might make you lose those extra kilos, but the results won’t necessarily be long-term, as per yoga practitioners.

There are a lot of dieting fads and trends dominating the health and fitness field right now. People turn towards dieting and fasting as a quick solution to get that slim figure before a big event, or simply because they want to look good for the upcoming wedding season. One of these trends is intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting is when you are supposed to increase the fasting window and decrease the eating window. So you basically get to eat in intervals—long intervals.

The only fasting that yoga recommends is the one which happens naturally, that is when you don’t eat anything after your dinner at 7 PM, and directly eat the next day’s breakfast at 7 AM. That gives a good 12 hours gap in between for the digestive system to get a little break.

Yoga believes that the main purpose behind fasting should simply be to overcome your weaknesses for food, to improve your health, and for self-development.

To cleanse the body from the inside, yoga recommends picking a day in which you eat nothing but fruits and boiled vegetables, without any added spices, salt or sugar.

You must strictly avoid all those shops that sell food items for ‘fasts’. Just stick to the basics and you’ll be fine.
