Intermittent Fasting?

In today's blog we will be taking an look at intermittent fasting (IF) and its benefits. First, this talk about what it is, IF is where you fast for certain part of the day and then have what would be called a "feeding window". For this discussions sake, we will use a 16 hour fast and an 8 hour eating window. This does have the flexibility to decide what part of the day you are most comfortable with fasting and when you tend to be the hungriest. This is simply a different way to be in a caloric deficit to induce weight/fat loss so you will still be tracking all your food intake accordingly.

 

One of the major benefits in my opinion is instead of thinking and worrying about your next meal in 3hrs you can focus more on your "Life Goals" instead of allowing a diet plan to dictate your daily movement. This type of eating works extremely well for non breakfast eaters as their fast could start 1 to 2hrs prior to sleep and hopefully they receive 8hrs of sleep and then 6hrs later they start their feedings. I am not saying this is an optimal diet, I am simply saying this may be a good eating plan to follow for certain invidiuals. Also, I would not recommend this type of eating for someone you is in a growing phase with a calorie surplus. Maybe Intermittent fasting is for you...
