Weight loss diet: Reddit user followed intermittent fasting plan to shed 5st 8lb

After losing weight, it is no surprise some people will use social media to show off their impressive transformations. Posting on Reddit, one woman said she used a diet plan to shed 5st 8lb and she slimmed from 16st 1lb to a healthy 10st 7lb. The dieter explained following an intermittent fasting diet plan helped her to get into shape.

She said: “It’s unreal and amazing and I love my progress. It’s been a long journey but worth it all. Thanks to intermittent fasting 18:6.”

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting is a plan where slimmers will limit when they eat to certain times or day of the week.

Harry Aitken, sports scientist and PT, told Express.co.uk: "Intermittent fasting is a dietary technique in which all food is consumed within a relatively small window of time.



"Fasting is going for a significant period of time without eating, and intermittent fasting simply brings in a small window of time where you are able to eat."

A popular method of the diet is the 16:8 plan where slimmers will fast for 16 hours a day and eat all their meals within the eight hour window.

Others will limit how much they eat on certain days, such as the 5:2 plan where dieters eat 500 calories on two days of the week and eat normally for the remaining five.

The Reddit user explained she usually fasted for 18 hours a day, giving herself a six hour window to eat.
