How much weight can you lose in a month with Intermittent Fasting? Today, we're diving into how much weight you can lose with Intermittent Fasting, how long it takes to start seeing results and showing you real life examples of other men and women using Intermittent Fasting for weight loss.
How Much Weight Can You Lose In A Month With Intermittent Fasting?
Traditional Nutrition knowledge will give you a very mathematical answer. It will go along the lines of this: "If you are in a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day with Intermittent Fasting, then you will achieve one pound weight loss per week. At this rate, you will achieve 4-5 pounds of weight loss in one month."
But guess what? They're wrong.
How much weight you can expect to lose in a month with Intermittent Fasting depends on factors such as:
1. How much weight you have to lose
Generally, the bigger your weight loss goal is, the faster your body will utilize fat as a fuel source.
2. The types of meals you're eating.
Even if you're eating a "low-calorie" diet while Intermittent Fasting, you may still be eating foods that spike your storing hormone insulin, making it impossible to turn on the fat burning process called lipolysis.
3. The quality of sleep you're getting.
Sleep is almost equally as important as the food you're eating when it comes to weight loss. In fact, studies show that poor quality sleep significantly increases your risk of weight gain and obesity.(1)
The body is not a simple mathematical equation, and in all truth of the matter, there's no real way to determine exactly how much weight you will lose in a month of Intermittent Fasting. There are many factors outside of exercise and the food you eat that have a major impact on how quickly you will reduce your body fat percentage. (Note that I said "body fat percentage" and not "lose weight". This is a crucial difference and one that measures REAL results.)

How Soon Do You See Weight Loss With Intermittent Fasting?
Because Intermittent Fasting relies on the natural dip in the storing hormone insulin in order to tap into fat burning, weight loss can begin within the first three days or might take 1-3 weeks to become fat adaptive. Some people might be starting with higher levels of insulin (a state called hyperinsulinemia). If this is the case, then it will likely take a few weeks to start using fat as fuel. If you aren't starting in a state of hyperinsulinemia, you will likely see weight loss results faster.
Weight loss results also vary, but AEN peeps have reported a range of 1-5 pounds of weight loss within just the first week of the Complete Intermittent Fasting Program.
