Try to solve any issues you have with fasting side effects.
Fasting can be difficult for people who struggle with its many side effects. Some of these include fatigue, hunger, irritability, headaches, nausea, and decreased concentration. All of these should pass in time, but they can be signs that your body is having a difficult time with the process. If this is the case, there are a few options to make things a bit easier on you, like consulting your doctor on potential pitfalls you are experiencing, or making sure your diet is right between fasts.
Dry fasting, like we said before, is the most intense form of fasting out there, and it can give you truly amazing results. There is a reason why everyone with weight issues isn’t dry fasting, and it’s partly because some people struggle to get through the fast. Addressing the issues and effects of your dry fast is the only way to integrate it into your life, otherwise you are going to give up on it sooner or later.
Don’t overeat during your eating windows.
If you are looking to get serious dry fasting results, you are going to have to stay disciplined, even when you are in an eating window. A lot of people think that because they are going extended periods of time without eating, they can then eat whatever they want. The goal here is to be in a calorie deficit, and if you are eating unhealthily, this might not be the case. You could actually gain weight if you are eating poorly enough in your eating windows, so make sure you don’t get overconfident just because you are fasting. The amount of calories you can eat each day while remaining in a calorie deficit depends on how many you are burning, so if you want to eat more, exercise may be the best way to lose weight and still have the food you like.
Don’t think it will happen overnight.
If you dry fast once and believe that you should already be seeing results, you are not being realistic about the process. The people who get the most out of dry fasting are those who take their time, and it’s almost required with this form of fasting. If you take things too far, you are going to end up malnourished, which is not something you want to put your body through.
Take things slowly and think of it as a sort of long-term experience. You aren’t going to be able to see effects for some time potentially, even though your body is getting healthier and you may be chipping away at your body’s stored fat reserves. Be patient with the program and with yourself, as you don’t want to start becoming negative about dry fasting. This will only make the fast itself more aggravating and make the fasting process much less enjoyable.
