Today we’re going to talk about fasting and belly fat. If you have the correct pattern of intermittent fasting, you can tap into your visceral (belly) fat.

A recent study done on mice indicated that intermittent fasting could slow down weight loss and create a resistance to losing weight.

This conflicts with other studies that show that intermittent fasting can help with weight loss. One study indicates that a person can lose their visceral fat by 4-7% by doing one meal a day.

When we have conflicting information, it’s time to dig deeper. With the first study, they did every other day fasting. This is where you would fast for one day, go back to your regular eating plan the next day, then fast again the day after that, and so on. They were also not doing the keto diet when they ate their meals.

This is a lot different than what I talk about, where you fast for a period of hours, then go on keto, and then fast for a period of hours, and so on. The key is staying on keto.

Two types of fasting that will slow your weight loss:
1. Every other day fasting
2. The 5:2 fasting pattern (5 days you eat what you want and for 2 days you eat 500 calories)

If you go on and off keto, it can cause the body to adapt and protect its fuel source, which is stored as body fat. If you want to correct your metabolism and target belly fat, the best way to do it is with a combination of keto and intermittent fasting.
