Do fast by skipping the meal is not a brilliant choice. If you change your dietary habit for one meal, which means that you have to calculate the nutrition and the vitamin and other essential elements into one meal. So when you eat as usual and skip the meal number, it is obviously that you will lose. However, if you have done the way, it is unhealthy.
Fasting is a good way to lose weight, but it should be done properly. The human body will fight efforts to lose weight as energy sources are inadequate, and the process rather consume muscle mass. Without an intelligent fasting strategy, you gain back all the weight you lost to fasting and everything.
Honestly from personal experience, the fastest and best way to lose fat is by working out. Cause going on a diet does help a little but to get optimum results at a speeding rate exercise is the best option. Although skipping meals, dieting, and healthy meals do help, but not at the rate of exercise.
You lose weight….but is it fat or muscle?
Losing fat is great, losing muscle…not so much.
You’re likely lowering your caloric intake for the day, which can be good or bad depending on your current body composition.
I would suggest skipping morning meal as described below but my former boss only ate breakfast & dinner… seldom lunch.
I guess a simple answer is, if you are skipping one meal, make sure you eat as much as you would eat normally in your other meals + how much ever you skipped.
So the total amount of food going into your body will remain the same, but the size of your meals and number of meals will change.
That way you won’t lose weight.
