Intermittent Fasting - is it for you?
One of the hottest health and diet trends for 2020 - Intermittent Fasting!
In simple terms, it is basically waiting longer periods between eating. The reasons to do so include allowing the digestive system to rest, reduce gastrointestinal discomfort, loose weight, lower blood sugar and improve energy. Eating dinner earlier and then not eating again until later in the morning. A popular version is 16 hours of fasting and then being allowed to eat during an 8 hour window. An example of this would be eating dinner at 7pm and then not eating again until after 11am the following day. Although there are health benefits to intermittent fasting, it is advisable to consult with your doctor prior to starting any diet program. Remember that what you eat is just as important as when you eat. Even though intermittent fasting has health benefits, it is still not advisable to consume processed or sugary foods.
