Intermittent fasting (IF) is extremely popular.
Everyone from high level athletes to Susan in your yoga class claim’s to be seeing amazing results using it. But does it really work? How can you not try it when it is all you ever hear about? Let’s jump on the IF train and take a ride.
So What is Intermittent Fasting?
Intermittent fasting is just fasting for a specific period of time. Whether that is daily, or even weekly. You set up your windows in specific times throughout the day, usually 16 hour fasts and then you eat in the remaining 8 hours.
Whereas many people just have breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You now set up your day in a different structure, and eat within a “time limit”
Keep in mind, the only way IF will work for fat loss is if you can adhere to this for a long period of time.. Also, if you are in a calorie deficit. This is the KEY factor.
Eating very large meals in a short period of time tends to help others feel as if they aren’t on a diet… But sadly, it isn’t magic.
Hope this helped!
