 What is Intermittent Fasting?

Should you do the intermittent fasting thing? I think you should try things out, everything is worth a try (if it is worthy) and intermittent fasting is certainly worthy.

First, what is intermittent fasting? Plainly, intermittent fasting is eating in a pattern where you cycle in periods of eating and periods of fasting.

In most cases, it doesn’t matter what you eat, it only matters when you eat. Typically, intermittent fasters will eat from 2pm to 8pm or 2pm to 6pm, or noon to 6pm.

I’ve done all of those times and I rather enjoy doing this. With exercise, studies have shown that intermittent fasting may induce weight loss, improve metabolic health, prevent disease, and help you live longer. Guys like Jordan Rubin (The Maker’s Diet Revolution), and Dave Asprey (The Bulletproof Diet) live by it and teach it profusely.

The diet can be tricky, because once you fast, you get use to not eating, but you’ll still be hungry (sometimes). Then once you break the fast, let’s say at 2pm, you may not be hungry again till 7 or 8. You’d then have to eat something by force before you’re closing the shop down for another 16 to 18 hours.

The fasting section sometimes includes water, or as Asprey likes, coffee. I’d recommend water, tea, or coffee as long as you don’t do sugar or sweets with your teas or coffees. Done with a clear purpose and intent, you’ll find this very beneficial to the body and easy to become habitual.
