Intermittent Fasting

​There is a buzz about Intermittent Fasting (IF).

One thing to keep in mind is that there are aspects of IF that are beneficial, even if you are reluctant to give up eating for extended periods. In fact, some of the best results come from simple adjustments to the times when you eat and when you don't eat.

I have gotten amazing results just with ​a few tweaks to my own eating schedule. And so have many people who may have similar goals as you.

See below for the resources we have prepared for you to get on board. Your body will love you back for practicing some of the things you will learn.

What’s in a Name?

We professionals in the field of health and nutrition recognize when an old diet gets repackaged with a new name. For example, in general, most of the keto diets are versions of the old Atkins plan. Different practitioners tweak the details of a given diet theory in order to lay claim to their innovative approach. This is an extremely common practice. Gimmicks aside, it has been said that there really is nothing new in the diet world.

lower-calorie diet. Because fiber fills you up, these foods are also quite satisfying.   

The current rave about intermittent fasting is a refinement of the old calorie restriction approach to weight loss. When I was a chubby kid I tried to learn as much as I could on weight loss through calorie restriction. At its most basic level – many nuances and variations notwithstanding, and which I will address – weight loss that results from intermittent fasting comes from restricting calories. But there’s more to it than that. For example, reducing calories just to lose weight, without considering what kind of calories you are consuming is far from a complete approach to weight loss and improved health.

Even before Intermittent Fasting was used to describe this approach to eating and not eating, fasting has been around forever. It’s described in the bible. Calorie restriction has been correlated with many health benefits, including longevity, resistance to disease, heart and blood vessel health, insulin sensitivity, healthy blood glucose levels, gut health, and more, which will be discussed below. This information was available in scientific literature even before the current popular trend of IF.
