Intermittent Fasting is a general term for various eating patterns that involve fasting (not eating) for short periods of time. Unlike a typical weight loss diet or weight loss plan that restricts how much or what you eat, it’s all about integrating periods of fasting into your day to reap the many proven health benefits of Intermittent Fasting like burning stored body fat for energy, feeling less hungry and improving many biomarkers of health. In my opinion, Intermittent Fasting with 2 Meal Day is a more natural way of eating. Rather than eating because the clock tells you to, or because “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”, you learn to eat when you are hungry. This is why Intermittent Fasting diets are key becoming a successful lifestyle change for hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. The Western world has only been eating three meals a day for 400 years or so. This may seem like a long time but Homo sapiens (us) have been around for 200,000 years. Eating three meals day is not based on our biological needs but started due to cultural reasons. It’s important to realise that Fasting is not a new idea. Every ancient culture and religion has used Fasting in some way – to cleanse and heal the body.
Regardless of your lifestyle or fitness level, you can and will succeed with this plan.
