4. Practice Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is a great tool, not just for weight loss but overall health. The 16:8 intermittent fasting is the most common method and it is highly effective. 

The 16:8 method essentially means that you fast for a 16 hour period and eat your meals for the day within an 8 hour window.

For example, if you fast from 8pm one day to 12pm the next day, you would have done a 16 hour fast (you fast while you sleep). You will then eat your meals for the day between 12pm and 8pm. 

During the fasting window, you can have water, plain black coffee or tea – No added sugar or milk.

Intermittent fasting will help restrict excessive snacking, drop calorie intake and curb cravings among other things.
