The ‘No Pain, No Gain’ Mantra!

It’s so true in almost everything, perhaps in everything good and desirable.

We say this mantra, especially when we refer to working out in the gym for better health.

Then the same should be applicable to the best wellness program, Intermittent Fasting!

Intermittent Fasting is a top subject when it comes to better health and benefits. And when something is so popular, it’s only natural that a whole lot of people start giving opinions.

Giving information is good, but not so when commercial interests work on it.

We need to be guarded again such attempts to corrupt a good thing for business interest.

A case in point is the view that one shouldn’t miss breakfast. But then breakfast is the most branded meal with a number of multinationals producing breakfast items. We don’t know if breakfast is unbreakable or it’s the lobby saying it.

When we read research on Intermittent Fasting and it’s goal of autophagy, it’s clear that clean fasting is better and if you can do dry fasting, then it’s even better.

But there are people saying that black coffee, black tea, herbs, good fat, green drinks etc are okay while fasting. Well here we can see some multinational product lobby, probably hiding behind.

So, do Intermittent Fasting the clean way with only water. If you are comfortable enough try dry fasting in between or more.

But if you are willing to dilute the best results with some calories from black coffee etc. do it. But only if you’re already on coffee or tea. But please don’t start an addiction for the sake of it.

Just remember, ‘no pain, no gain’.

    Breakfast is important, and the point where the Confusion happens is its timing, as per my observation. Breaking your fast with this meal, breakfast is the first thing we eat after a duration of fasting. Now this could be at any time of the day, afternoon or evening or as the usual thing, morning. To adjust with the circadian rhythm, humans have this habit of eating as soon as they wake up. Hence the morning breakfast became something that’s related to morning, often forgetting that it’s not the time of the day that matters, it’s the frequency and duration of fasting and feeding that matters.

    And with that logic, intermittent fasting is actually an extension of the normal fasting done when we sleep. Hence, skipping breakfast doesn’t mean skipping it literally, it means we have postponed it to some other time. Hence breakfast at 2pm in the afternoon is breakfast, given it’s the first meal you have after fasting for a long duration. And yes, eat breakfast like a giant !

    Also, the lobbies that say breakfast is important, and sell instant, ready to prepare food items know the hustle of the new generation that couldn’t find time to wake up early in the morning and prepare food. Hence they too focus on timing, and not the actual concept of breaking the fast, thereby conditioning us to the wrong notion of breakfast.

    This is my observation.
