I want to tell you very quickly about Intermittent Fasting. If you’re like me you hear the word FAST and you think it means STARVE.
But this is how it works. Intermittent fasting means you eat within an 8 hour period during the day. You eat your last meal at night, preferably around 6 pm and then you don’t eat again for 16 hours, which takes you to around 10 am the next morning.
This is called 16:8 intermittent fasting and the health benefits include balancing blood sugar, lowering cholesterol, increasing fat burning, boosting energy levels and mental clarity and many more.
If you haven’t heard of it look it up. For most people it’s easy to do. Of course there are people who should not try this without medical supervision – those who are underweight or with eating disorders, pregnant and breastfeeding women.
