Intermittent fasting: schemes for beginners, what it is, pros and cons03.09.2022
What can you eat during meal times?
It is equally important to know what your diet should consist of and is it possible to “throw” everything into yourself during the “nutrition window”? After all, such theories can also be found on the Internet.
On intermittent fasting, you need to focus on protein-fat foods, remove simple carbohydrates (sweets, white flour pastries, five-minute cereals, fast food, etc.), eat a sufficient amount of greens and vegetables, which will give you satiety for a long time. Then it will be quite easy to withstand long breaks without food. It is also possible to consume complex carbohydrates (wild rice, buckwheat, lentils, grain bread), but in moderation and in combination with vegetables and protein-fat products.
This should be taken into account because carbohydrates (especially simple sugars) are designed in such a way that they provide rapid absorption in the small intestine and give a lightning-fast reaction from the pancreas. As a result, a person receives fast energy, which is enough for a very short period of time. Surely you have noticed this pattern: if you have a snack with milk chocolate or any fruit, you want to eat in just 30 minutes, and if you take a boiled egg and some vegetables, that is, you will not want to eat for another couple of hours.
