Post Date: February 5, 2018
Do you practice intermittent fasting? If so, how many hours do you fast? What about Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery)? Does it help to lose weight and for how long? Should you optin in for bariatrics or proceed with intermittent fasting? and what if both are done?
We would like to briefly answer most questions related to bariatrics and intermittent fasting.
Why Intermittent Fasting Works?
The idea is to get all of your calories in, in a short period of time. This allows your body to spend the next several hours focusing on burning what you’ve put into your body.

Expected Results From Intermittent Fasting For First Week:
Dropping 0.6-1.2 pounds a day for a week.
For How Long Expected To Continue Losing Weight With Intermittent Fasting?
Some said One month. However, the majority of schools of intermittent fasting recommended 3 month.
Is Intermittent Fasting as good as Weight Loss (Bariatric Surgery) For Weight Loss?
A patient undergoing surgery at 400 pounds(181 Kg) would likely still weigh over 350 pounds (158) at 3 months (90 days). That’s around 50 pounds (22.5 KG) lost.
With Intermittent fasting, the expected minimum would be .6 pounds X 90 days = 54 pounds
