Can you actually lose 25 pounds in a month? According to one weight loss influencer, the answer is yes. Rosa Charice (@rosacharice) has amassed nearly 400,000 followers on TikTok by sharing about her massive and rapid weight loss. In one video she reveals a major secret to dropping tons of weight fast. "You are trying to lose weight simply with a calorie deficit alone and it isn't working for you, then you should try this instead. I was able to lose 25 pounds in just 30 days," she says. Here is everything you need to know about how she did it. 

Intermittent Fasting Helped Her Lose Weight

Rosa reveals that restricting the hours of when she ate was instrumental in her weight loss journey. "I was able to lose weight so fast by intermittent fasting and not even restricting myself," she says in the clip. "I didn't even have to do much tracking after that."

She Used an Intermittent Fasting App


She added that she used a fitness app to help her lose weight. "One of my favorite apps at the moment to use for weight loss or weight management is called Label. I have previously recommended this app to help you count calories, but they also recently just added a fasting feature," she says, explaining that they offer one-on-one coaching through your intermittent fasting journey, "so you feel like you have companionship and guided support," she says. "They also give you specific recipes that you can pair with intermittent fasting, so you don't even have to count calories. And they also give you a basic to-do list or even instructions to help make intermittent fasting easier for weight loss."

In another video, Rosa explains the benefits of intermittent fasting. "I understand how fasting could be kind of a turnoff, because it's like, well, I don't want to stop eating. I don't want to stop," she says, going on to list the benefits that she experienced as a result.

Does Intermittent Fasting Work?


Intermittent fasting works by "prolonging the period when your body has burned through the calories consumed during your last meal and begins burning fat," explains Johns Hopkins Medicine. However, according to  Chris McMahon, a nutrition and fitness coach, "there's nothing magical" about fasting because weight loss boils down to calories in versus out. However, "if you're someone with a really busy schedule or you're just not hungry in the morning and you don't tend to get hungry until 10 or 11," there isn't anything wrong with fasting but it won't "suddenly transform your body or reset your aging clock or your biological clock," he says. "All you're doing is just cutting a portion of your calories out."

💪🔥Body Booster:Try intermittent fasting if it fits your schedule, but remember, weight loss depends on a calorie deficit, not fasting alone.
