With intermittent fasting, you will lose weight, but does it work when your goal is to lose FAT?
When losing weight during intermittent fasting, how can you avoid losing muscle?
If want to lose FAT but keep the MUSCLES during intermittent fasting, make sure you are eating well before and after your workouts – especially your proteins.
If you are a guy also make sure you improve your testosterone levels.
Any fast is a stress on your body – so it puts you in “flight or flight” mode – your stress hormone cortisol goes up and your testosterone goes down.
So, you’ll also need to lower your cortisol levels.
