Food items you must avoid while intermittent fasting

There are some food items which you must avoid while intermittent fasting. Today we are going to discuss those food items.

Intermittent fasting is one of the best ways of loosing weight. You need to stay hungry for couple of hours and your body will use the extra fat to get all the energy. This is the basic idea behind the concept of the intermittent fasting. But there are some items which you can eat while fasting. However, there are some items which seems perfect for fasting but actually not. You must avoid such food items. Today we are going to discuss some of those food items in this piece of information.

  • Milk

Milk is ideal to take while doing the normal fasting. However, it is not at all good for intermittent fasting. The reason is that milk contains natural sugar. The moment you take one sip of milk the insulin level of blood increases and your fast breaks instantly. It will give your body energy. And as a result, the body will not be able to use the fat for energy. The whole hard work will destroy in minutes. So it’s better to not try milk while intermittent fasting. However, you can go for sour buttermilk.

  • Potato

A potato is also a good option for fasting but the normal one only. If you try to eat potatoes in intermittent fasting then it will break your fasting instantly. The reason is again the same, you will get enough energy from them. Your body will not use the fat for energy. So avoid eating potatoes while intermittent fasting.

  • Excess of fruits

Fruits are a good source to take energy for your body. They are mostly water and get out of the body easily. Eating a small number of fruits while fasting is well and good but not overeating. The reason is simple fruits contains fibers and lots of natural sugar. So if you eat lots of fruits then your body will get lots of sugar or we can say calories. Ultimately your weight increase instead of loss. 

  • Eggs

Eggs are also very light. It is just the pieces of protein and water if you remove the yellow part. But there are fixed hours of eating food while intermittent fasting. You can have lots of protein into those hours but not while the fasting hours. You only need to have water, small amount of water, black coffee, green tea and similar stuff while fasting hours. Other things may cause the reverse effect. 

These are the four foods that you must avoid while intermittent fasting. These items seem very light and normal but are still not allowed to eat during your fasting hours. Fast for religion and intermittent fasting are two different things. The purpose of both processes is different. You are losing weight while intermittent fasting. So keep this in mind and do proper research. If possible hire a dietitian for proper guidance. And don’t forget to stay hydrated for best results.
