Many people think that they will eat too much after a fasting period and thus will fasting will have no effect on their weight. This is not the case. Of course, your first meal after fasting might be a little bigger, and that’s completely okay. Studies have shown, that intermittent fasters will only eat 10% to 20% more in calories. That’s considerably less than what you would have consumed with one more full meal. Your calorie intake will be clearly reduced in this way.
